The Fragile Left: Banning Cartoon Frogs And Dead Gorillas
Two news stories from this past week shows not only the absurdity of the left, but also how fragile their ideology is. Pepe The Frog and Harambe the Gorilla have both been targeted, and even banned in one case by people who see them as a threat to their worldview. In true fascist fashion, they have set out to ban these images and references and chastise anyone who dares use them. This makes it completely apparent that if your ideology can be destroyed by a cartoon frog and a dead gorilla then you are a bigger joke then the jokes themselves.
“A cartoon frog tied to anti-Semitism and racism that has become an unofficial mascot of the alt-right has been added to the Anti-Defamation League’s list of hate symbols, joining the ranks of the swastika and the Confederate battle flag, the group said on Tuesday.
The frog, known as Pepe the Frog, did not originally have anti-Semitic connotations, the league said in a news release. The meme proliferated in outlets such as 4chan, an anonymous online message board, and the social media site Reddit, and morphed into a symbol associated with anti-Jewish and bigoted ideas, the release said.
Alex Goldman, a host of the podcast Reply All, which tells stories about the internet, described 4chan in a recent show as “like a nightmarish cesspool that is full of offensive stuff.””
“The famed neuroscientist David Eagleman once said: “There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.”
It seems that social justice warriors are demanding this third death for the sweet, gentle giant Harambe, the gorilla who was tragically shot at the Cincinnati Zoo in May.
The administration at Clemson University is banning students from publicly displaying references to Harambe, saying he promotes racism and rape culture, Campus Reform reported.”
