I had to research this because I was not familiar with Pepe the Frog, but I think that it was a waste of time and effort for the creator to kill him
Racist will use whatever they have available, anything, idea, or belief, to spread their vitriol and hate. They do it because it has been a successful
way of recruiting by acceptance, and normalizing that which was once considered by the majority to be safe and innocent, and it oozes into every
crevice of our society like mold. It is not until there is enough of it to be noticed, or to make you sick, that we become aware of its presence and
its untoward results.
I have seen it toxifying ATS for a while, and through my ignorance of the characteristics of this plague, I didn't know what I was looking at. I kept
seeing the comments about "didnt do nuffin", and they didn't make sense to me, so I just over looked them. While researching about Pepe the Frog, I
learned the true meaning of the words and how they and the use of memes are weapons for the spread of hate.
I thought ATS held itself above the other forums that will not be named, but the poison is alive and well here. It is not even thinly veiled anymore.
It is right in your face and appears to be well accepted. It seems the mission has been accomplished. Killing off Pepe was pointless.
