HONG KONG — Ask the Anti-Defamation League, and they will tell you Pepe the Frog is a hate symbol, a cheerleader of racism and anti-Semitism, a friend of alt-right extremists. The sad, green frog is widely viewed as toxic across the world, a signal of a sinister and dangerous worldview.I post this as an example of weirdo Jewish thinking. The Jews at the Anti-Defamation League and the NY Times have some kind of paranoid obsession with green cartoon frogs and other such symbols. There is no other group that would raise a fuss about a few people on the other side of the world drawing cartoon frogs. It is bizarre.
So it can be a bit jarring to see Pepe in his new role: a pro-democracy freedom fighter in the Hong Kong protests, siding with the people in their struggle against an authoritarian state. The protesters here hold signs with his image, use stickers of him in messaging apps and discussion forums, and even spray paint his face on walls. ...
Few Hong Kongers have shown awareness online about Pepe’s sinister side.
