Media Goes Full Freak-Out Over Russian Embassy Pepe Tweet

Media Goes Full Freak-Out Over Russian Embassy Pepe Tweet

I finally dug out of the snow here in Richmond, Virginia. It’s still colder than a witch’s tit in a brass brassiere, as my father would say, but at least I no longer feel like a captive. In fact, I’m sitting at a Starbucks as I write this. I was on the lookout for glares while researching this short post about the notorious white supremacist frog, Pepe. I didn’t really see any, though. It seems like the only people who get worked up about nonsense like this are in the media. How many people are actually buying their bullshit nowadays, especially about a damn cartoon frog?

Just look at this headline in the wake of some trolling from the Russian embassy in the United Kingdom…

At least The Independent put quotation marks around white supremacist…

“racist cartoon frog”

I’m sure the Russians are really concerned with what the Western crybaby media thinks about their meme usage. They’re really known to respect journalists over there in Russia. I’m sure Putin is really broken up right now.

Russia is no friend…and this has been proven because they used Pepe the Frog to troll the Brits on Twitter. I’m not even saying they are friends, but this is insane.

OK, that one is even crazier.

A NEW LOW!! Could these people even say this shit out loud without laughing? There’s plenty of things to have a go at Russia about, but Pepe is at the bottom of the list. Does the media not realize how ridiculous going nuts over a cartoon frog makes them look? It’s like they have no self-awareness at all. It’s why the media keeps losing and is now held in lower regard than at anytime in the history of polling.

Sad!

    I really thought they might look at what happened during the election and change tack. Because huge exaggerations and faux outrage of every little Trump quote only hurt their cause.
    But they are just going to carry on regardless and only end up hurting themselves even more. Some of those tweets ffs, it’s hard to now what to say about such ridiculous statements.

    The bright side of this is that I snagged myself a few rare Pepe’s today.

      At this point, they’ve hurt themselves so much their faces are puddles on the floor.

    This is too easy for Russia, it’s embarrassing. I just hope that Brexit pulls through with Theresa May and then we can be a little less cucked as a nation.

  • Jason75

    I wonder if Putin’s government has created a Bureau of Trolling Western Leftists. Trump should make one too, and then they can spend inordinate amounts of time on Twitter posting Pepe memes to each other, chortling at the inarticulate ravings of leftists in the comments. Also it’ll improve American-Russian relations, which can only be a good thing.

    They have not yet noticed he is a GREEN frog‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽‽

  • A green frog offends grown adults. Grown adults who work in media and politics.

    …lol

    I’m just laughing cause I live in England and Theresa May is nothing more then an Establishment Stooge trying to stop Brexit and anyway to make her and the SJW’s / Lefties look idiotic, i am all for. After all, we never got a chance to vote in Sharia May into office.

  • Sockpuppet Nora

    It’s a frog. A badly drawn frog.

  • Dave Gambino

    Whatever happened to the saying; “I don’t care if youre white black brown green or red”? Apparently, leftists REALLY hate green people. #weStandWithPepe #stopTheRacismAgainstPepeJustBecauseHesAGreenBrother

  • Silence Dogood

    So apparently now “Alt-Right” is a synonym for “Neo-Nazi”? Christ these people are looney. And it’s a fucking MEME! The media continues to show how out of touch they are. Meanwhile Russia got EXACTLY the reaction they were looking for. Idiots.

  • Botiemaster

    Why does this seem so familiar…….a media group attacking another group of people, smearing them all they can with things like frog = symbol of hate, pushing the same narrative across the board….what was that event called…. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0865dea7eba0f404fa012d8de42f38975745d954aa3e778769c034f37882a6f3.jpg

      I’m pretty sure it had to do with some dumb slut that thought she could sleep her way to fame and when she got caught tried to make herself look like a victim and profit from said victim hood, but I could be wrong.

      • Flowey

        The fallout from that event filled the salt mines for years to come 😀

        • Yuno Gasai

          And with Trump’s win they’ll be filled till the end of time.

  • BK LEWIS. TRAIN keeps a ROLLIN

    ARE YOU PROGRESSIVES INSANE? IT’S A PICTURE OF A FROG. AND THIS IS WHITE SUPREMACY IN YOUR MINDS? YOU ARE IN NEED OF SOME SERIOUS MENTAL THERAPY. I SUGGEST SHOCK TREATMENT STAT. WHO COMES UP WITH THIS STUPID BS? IF ANYONE SHOULD BE OFFENDED IT SHOULD BE THE FRENCH.

  • This is easily on par with the religious fundamentalists who saw Satanic occult rituals behind every cartoon and He-Man toy in the 1980’s.

    Except this time the loons hold the cultural high-ground. It seems like they’re doing everything they can to hurl themselves out of it, fortunately.

  • Mr0303

    “This is pretty much the modern equivalent of Russia raising a swastika flag over the Kremlin.” – you fucking moron. Need I remind you who stopped the Nazis in Europe?

  • milk bone

    That top image of Pepe somehow reminds me of https://youtu.be/2-8gsWZqDBM

    Can’t imagine why.
