New York, NY, September 27, 2016 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today identified “Pepe the Frog,” a cartoon character used by haters on social media to suggest racist, anti-Semitic or other bigoted notions, as a hate symbol.  It has been added it to ADL’s online “Hate on Display” database.Also referred to as the “sad frog meme,” Pepe the Frog did not originally have anti-Semitic connotations. But as the meme proliferated in online venues such as 4chan, 8chan and Reddit, a subset of memes came into existence promoting anti-Jewish, bigoted and offensive ideas. And those have spread virally on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere.

Meet Pepe the Frog:



Unfortunately the ADL is beclowning itself by making an issues of Pepe. As any meme in the interwebs, anybody can add text and have it say what they want without repercussions… you know, First Amendment issues and stuff? And just because a group of Neo-Nazi assholes went to a meme-generator site and added some racist text to it, does not mean we should classify a cartoon as the new incarnation of Leni Riefenstahl’s work.

Dear ADL: Temper yourself.



Spread the love

  1. Many of those ‘neonazis’ are just people trolling for a reaction and aren’t actually neonazis, the reason why they’re funny is because of the stupidity and absurdity of racism.

  2. The ADL has become like the SPLC. They do some good work. But they also have become a liberal echo chamber and tend to see bigotry where it doesn’t exist and ignore it when it comes from within liberal ranks.

    On the Pepe issue, the entire Left has beclowned itself. When they are going after a terrible cartoon image like it’s a swastika, they’ve jumped the PC shark.
