They've stupidly walked right into both idiot traps.
When that first happened my two buddies (one Asian, one black) took a selfie of them with one of those signs on a mailbox pretending to cry.



I'd post it but all hell would break loose in here.

White supremacists have no more right to redefine language than you do.

If they took a photo of you as their mascot, would you condemn yourself as being their mascot or would you state that you are not a symbol of white supremacy?

What am I denying?

And it shows that 4chan can troll both liberals and WS with ease.

There was an OK sign made, whatever the meaning. Why would he do it during such an interview and why not just out in the open the standard way?

Let's summarize....
  • White Coast Guard member makes A-OK salute with hand.
  • Idiotic MSnBC pundit accuses a member of the US Coast Guard as being racist.
  • Coast Guard member's career is ruined.
  • Indignant leftists say this is OK. Defend MSNBC with every argument.
  • Leftists think they won real victory over White people. (but can't figure out who real enemy might be)





And they wonder why nobody listens to them anymore.

I would sue them in the same manner that the creator of Pepe did.

They’ve co-opted the symbol; all I see here are a bunch of whiners complaining about their new-found public noteriety. The least they could do is own it.

I have no idea. Why don't you ask him?

Let's say the guy suddenly blurted out "popcorn" on the video rather than forming an okay sign. Would then "popcorn" be claimed to be a white power word just because some white guy blurted it out at an odd moment?

Sorry, but I don't give a damn if he was trying to say something or what it was. He doesn't get to decide what okay means. And neither do you. An okay sign is an okay sign. Popcorn means little kernels of corn that have been popped. And a snot-nosed snowflake blogger on the internet doesn't get to decide how the **** to use the English language or what the hand gestures that represent words in the English language mean. Neither do white supremacists. They don't change my language.

And all I see is a bunch of liberals trying to come up with a new pidgin English called Snowflake Speak.


Sorry. I will not recognize a redefinition of the English language by sour grapers who have nothing better to do.

The good ‘ol fallback for the right: alternate reality.

More proof that it's 4Chan's Internet, and we are all just visiting.

So much lol in this story. Feel bad a dude had his career ruined, sorta, but 4Chan's trolling powers are the stuff of legend.
