No. Mimesis is not capable of being racist.

This is just the best stuff.

The ruling reveals once more the hegemony of the Baby Boom generation, and "stupid is as stupid does".

Go Stupid! Go. As in retire please.

Thanks.

No I didn't. Only Pepe with Nazi symbols is a hate symbol. L2R.

That is not how it is perceived.

The nazi symbol is a hate symbol, putting it on a cantaloupe makes the cantaloupe a hate symbol?

In fact, all headlines read: Pepe is a hate symbol

They don't read nazi pepe is a hate symbol.

You posted a hate symbol.

That's the trouble with clickbait titles ain't it... it's perceived that way because people can't read beyond the headline.

So.. CNN, USA today, and NPR are click-bait websites?

Is click-bait synonymous with MSM?

Hey Folks,

Me:


No. Mimesis is not capable of being racist.


Well, you learn something everyday, and I just have: memes by definition can be extraordinary examples of racism, or any other little nugget of sociocultural goodness that one can imagine.

I apologize for my ignorance and will do better next time.

So:



This modern pepe movement supports Trump and now this meme pepe is now considered a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League.

1) Does this mean anything to you?

2) Do you care what they think?

3) Is this a Hate Symbol?


1) Yes. It does now that I am studied-up a little, and now I am better prepared to answer the question.

2) Well, my own state of chronic mimesis is telling me that I don't. But hey, their bitching and moaning has turned me on to memes again, in a good way, so now I am engaged.

3)

a reply to: WilburnRoach

So listen, buddy, before I answer number 3, I really have to know: is this specifically a meme that the ADL has pointed out as being racist?



Or did you just scan the article and grab a Pepe-Trump, post it with your thread, and then ask the question?

I really have to know because it sounds like the ADL are up to date on the definition of a meme:



"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."

www.cnn.com...


What's up with that???

Here see look:



WilburnRoach

This modern pepe movement supports Trump and now this meme pepe is now considered a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League.


How do you know "this modern pepe movement supports Trump"? You don't. What you can say, however, is that, "Some Trump supporters, and some that do not support Trump make Pepe-Trump memes"; that's more accurate so:

Some people that are Trump Supporters, and some that do not support Trump make Pepe-Trump memes + The ADL has declared Pepe memes to be a hate symbol (also false) ∴ What? Trump and his supporters are racist?

See? You still can't do anything with that.

Thoughts?

I think we need to start showing Pepe holding up an ADL sign. That would mean the ADL would have to designate themselves as a hate group by their own logic.

So politically accurate and at the same time incorrect,
the Knesset might have to float a bill to rename them.
Hey it worked for the APA Document Committee.. and
they're a LOT more dangerous than mere politicians.

It's too bad where appearances meaning so much, the meme's
content seems to slip through subliminally to those in need.

Pepe is an easy target for the political smear campaigns because he simply can't talk back and defend himself.

Yeah but he comes with an army of stinky smelly trolls with no lives and a penchant for creating havoc online for the luls.

I wouldn't call him defenseless. In fact I'd say not only is attacking him a waste of time and effort, opens the door to more potential BS than it could ever possibly be worth.

The country has massive debts, people are getting poorer and poorer, the country fights wars all over the world (without any success). Climate change is coming, the economy crumbles, corruption os rampant.

But hey, let's focus on a 15 year old meme.

I am out, just can't stand the stupidity anymore. Can't.
