I just posted this link in another thread but I'll put it here, too:

The fact that the Hillary camp posted anything on her website about an internet meme at all is beyond ridiculous. The fact that the reporter didn't vet her resource or do additional research before publishing her ridiculous article and directly quoted a parody twitter account is insane. Trolled!

It was May of this year Hillary's campaign decided to assert it's racist and representative of white supremacists...lol (or should I say kek?)
in what way did you find it racist?
Pepe the green frog meme’s unmitigated rise into pop culture came amid hysteria that the Internet cartoon is little more than a stand-in for white nationalism. But it turns out the original story that prompted the panic is more or less a complete troll job.
The Daily Beast’s Olivia Nuzzi wrote a piece in May striving to describe and trace the genesis of Pepe in the alt-right scene, a nascent, illiberal political movement focused on preserving white identity and Western civilization. In the process, Nuzzi just ended up repeating various made-up stories from the only two people she interviewed from “Frog Twitter”: Paul Town (@PaulTown_) and Jared Taylor Swift (@JaredTSwift).
Frog Twitter is an offshoot, alt-right subculture primarily interested in memes, aesthetics and trolling political figures.
Since then, Pepe as white nationalist has become a meme of its own sort, circulated through liberal circles, cable networks and think pieces. Rounding out this tidal wave of whinery, Pepe made an appearance on Hillary Clinton’s own campaign site as part of an effort by the campaign to try to associate Donald Trump Jr. with white supremacy.
