You mean the Mexican woman who flashed the OK sign? Zina Bash was born in Mexico and his half Mexican half Jewish. This is exactly the stuff that has people laughing at liberals.

The entire white power thing with the OK sign is a troll by 4chan, they made the whole thing up.


That's not entirely true. The issue actually predates "Operation O-KKK".

Here is a link that discusses the issue a bit:

a reply to: OccamsRazor04 He shouldve done the Black Power sign instead, then they would be building a statue of him and singing his praises for years to come... instead he picked the evil color which everyone hates.

Sorry, it is true. The Kanye picture and people around Trump using the sign is the inspiration for 4chan to create this hoax.

www.vox.com...

It was never a white power sign before liberal crazy media and SJW started calling it one. Even in your link there is NOTHING before 2016.

It's not a black power avatar, but I understand the connection the symbology has.

I'm not on either team. I am simply pointing out that the gesture does have a connection, albeit a very thin one, to white supremacists before the 4-chan trolls picked up on it.

So I am a bit confused as to why you said what you said.

No, it doesn't. It's an OK sign, and some of them used it. Before Trump it was NEVER a white power sign. The media started to turn it into one, and 4chan saw what they were doing and trolled them. I have used the symbol for 40 years, it has always meant ok.

Now crazy liberals accuse Mexican women of being white power nationalists for making the sign, it's insane what has happened to the party.

As the link I posted stated and documented, there are connections to the gesture and white supremacist(s) before the 4-chan troll began.

Whether Kanye was the inspiration for the hoax or not is irrelevant to my point.

Why would there have to be something before 2016? I only asserted that there was a connection before the 4-chan troll started, which is true if you look at the date of the tweet from Spencer.

Something tells me you didn't read the article I linked.

There are photos of them flashing an OK sign, like millions of Americans do. There is no connection to it being a white power sign. White supremacists breathe oxygen too, do I need to stop doing that because it's a white power connection?

I did not say it was. I said it had a connection, though a very thin one, as illustrated by the article I linked.



The media started to turn it into one, and 4chan saw what they were doing and trolled them. I have used the symbol for 40 years, it has always meant ok.


So you admit that it began before the 4-chan stuff.

That's good.



Now crazy liberals accuse Mexican women of being white power nationalists for making the sign, it's insane what has happened to the party.


Sure. People make idiotic and unfounded claims all the time. I't a human problem, not just a political party or ideology.

That just goes to show how your opinion and thinking revolves around politics, which leaves you blind to other things going on a round you.

Look at the absolutely idiotic things the Right and Republicans have outraged over, or what their media buddies have pushed. Is it insane what has happened to their party?

No.

What's insane are the people involved. Both sides.

True.

I did not say there was. Perhaps you should read what I posted again.

No. That's an absurd example, as I have not made a similar claim.

Not sure you even understand what I posted.

Thank you for that information. If this is true, which I think may be the case, it is sad that right wing trollers prey upon others by inciting their sense of concern about white racism. Again, I value that info you offered.



Ummm...sad...it's absofreakinglutely hilarious...besides...the right can't trigger or incite the left...that would be the choice and decision of the triggered...

Sorry man there's no magic wand of the right that makes the left do anything that wasn't already in their nature to do...

"Inciting their sense of concern about white racism"...lame man...lame...

Stop trying to excuse the ignorance of the ignorant...your just making this all the funnier...

Neo Nazis can make up any hand signals they like , doesn't change the original meaning of thumbs up and thumbs down!

Assent or Favor !

not 14 words , nothing Neo nazis do are of historical worth to write a mention about them in the annals of human history
and this "14 words" meaning wont replace the Roman gladitorial origin !

I did not say that either.

We cannot agree on anything until you learn to properly read what is being said and I do not have the time to hold people's hands over things that even children can understand.

This is tame. I remember the Japanese whalers holding signs saying 'this is a scientific experiment' yeah i'd believe flat earthers before i'd believe that crap.

Who gives a flying rats' ass? that's the beauty of freedom of speech.

For effs sake.

A) Yes. It's an idiot troll.

B) He wasn't promoting White Power. He was promoting the Alt-Right and their nonsense troll campaign associated with symbol.

C) THAT is why the Coast Guard pulled him. Not because they thought he was a secret-Nazi, but because they thought someone that thought a hurricane rescue operation was a good time for far-right political trolling is an idiot.

D) The coast guard would not pull him for PR purposes. Not how the coast guard rolls. I have no doubt when confronted and asked about it he giggled like 4 year old farting in the bathtub and left them no choice but to sideline the idiot.

Your reply to that post of mine is a puzzle to me Yousir. You say being triggered is the choice or decision of the triggered to be triggered. This is not how I understand the concept.

I understand the term ''triggered'' to have grown out of descriptions of people with PTSD, as in soldiers who years later are stimulated to relive some of their gruesome memories of battle. This then expanded to refer to many different types of PTSD such as early childhood trauma.

This then expanded into descriptions of igniting almost any ''knee jerk reaction'' from the triggered. None of that definition fits with your suggestion that being triggered is a choice or a decision.

And then you go on to say that the right cannot trigger the left beyond what is already part of their nature. If we take this at face value then it is still sad, that is unless one finds picking on others weaknesses to be a funny thing to do. Is that the kind of person you are, one who likes to laugh at the weaknesses in others ? I find that hard to believe so somehow I must be missing your whole point here.
