So if Pepe had been in paperback, would it still be offensive? Charlie Hebdo gets not just a pass, but endorsement?
Satire is satire weather digital or in print.
Grow up ADL. It's not like six million people died or anything.

The designation does not apply to all Pepe memes because most of them are not bigoted in nature, the ADL said. "The mere fact of posting a Pepe meme does not mean that someone is racist or white supremacist," the group said. "However, if the meme itself is racist or anti-Semitic in nature, or if it appears in a context containing bigoted or offensive language or symbols, then it may have been used for hateful purposes."
The ADL don't care about all the facts... They've been out of the spotlight for a while and this is an excuse to get their name in the headlines again.

With that reasoning, even Micky Mouse can be a hate-symbol if he is drawn wearing nazi outfits enough times. This is less about hate symbols and more about slandering the alt-right.

Pepe is the prophesised result of the positive collective consciousness. A Tulpa if you will.
He is being demonised for a reason. The negative energy directed at Pepe (pbuh) is supposed to weaken his powers over the fate of the elite.
It isn't working.
Long live Pepe.
Death to the elites.
