RIP Pepe

Pepe the Frog has been murdered by his creator:
The creator of Pepe the Frog has symbolically killed off the cartoon frog, effectively surrendering control of the character to the far right.

Matt Furie, an artist and children’s book author, created the now-infamous frog as part of his “Boy’s Club” series on MySpace in 2005. Pepe took on a life of its own online as a meme, before being eventually adopted as a symbol by the “alt-right” in the lead-up to last year’s US election.

In September, Hillary Clinton identified Pepe the Frog as a racist hate symbol, and Pepe was added to the Anti-Defamation League’s database of hate symbols.

Furie launched a campaign to “Save Pepe”, flooding the internet with “peaceful or nice” depictions of the character in a bid to shake its association with white supremacy and antisemitism.

But he now seems to have conceded defeat, killing the character off in a one-page strip for the independent publisher Fantagraphics’ Free Comic Book Day. It showed Pepe laid to rest in an open casket, being mourned by his fellow characters from Boy’s Club.

Furie had been attempting to wrench back his “peaceful frog-dude” – whom he has often said he imagined as an extension of his personality – for more than six months. Pepe’s passing has been interpreted of his ceding control of the character.

Yeah, so, about that....



I cannot believe he didn't see that coming. The Left has even begun to admit, reluctantly, that all their memes are belong to us.
Angela Nagle, a writer and academic whose book on the culture of the alt-right will be published at the end of next month, told the Guardian Furie’s campaign to reclaim his creation, while understandable, had been misguided.

“I can see why he must be dismayed that his own creation is being used in this way, so I don’t blame him for trying. In general though, I think it’s a dead end, yes.”“Critics of the alt-right have a tendency to try to outdo them at their own game by ‘trolling the trolls’. This should be rejected in its entirety and not ‘reclaimed’ in any way ... There are many wonderful ideals for us to reclaim like beauty, utopianism, internationalism. Let them have their tedious nihilistic juvenile symbols.”

When your opponent's standard is "If it ever appears with a Swastika it is evil and racist" it becomes pretty easy to steal all of their Memes.

I think we clearly missed a trick putting Obama in Nazi regalia for 8 years. Hmm... I think you've found something a little deeper there. "Hitler" is the only evil the Left allows itself to acknowledge, which is why they do the "everyone I don't like is Hitler" shtick.

Clearly, we need to meme everything the Left loves with Hitler references. There's a lot of room for "if he doesn't want to be famous, I'll make him infamous!" in all of this. If nothing is sacred, well, we just have to play by those rules.

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with pepe.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to pepe.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This troubled me greatly, so I asked pepe about it.
"Pepe, you said once I took the redpill,
you would walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed you the most, you would leave me."

He whispered, "You insufferable faggot,
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I made wojak carry you."

Long I fell, and she fell with me. Her cankles were about me. I was burned. Then we plunged into the deep water and all was dark. Cold it was as the tide of death: almost it froze my heart.

Thither I came at last, to the uttermost foundations of stone. She was with me still. Her alcoholic rage was quenched, but now she was a thing of slime, stronger than a strangling snake.

We fought far under the living earth, where time is not counted. Ever she clutched me, and ever I hewed her, till at last she fled into dark tunnels.

In that despair my enemy was my only hope, and I pursued her, clutching at her pantsuit. Thus she brought me back at last to the secret ways of Comet Pizza: too well she knew them all. Ever up now we went, until we came to the Endless Stair.

Out she sprang, and even as I came behind, she burst into new cackles. Those that looked up from afar thought that the mountain was crowned with storm. Thunder they heard, and lightning, they said, smote upon the Javits Center, and leaped back broken into tongues of fire. A great smoke rose about us, vapour and Bacardi steam. Ice fell like rain. I threw down my enemy, and she fell from the high place and broke the mountain-side where she smote it in her ruin.

Then darkness took me; and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell.

A week later they put 150,000 people in the street to support the Vietnam War, and beating Hippies. Mostly beating Hippies.

A week later they put 150,000 people in the street to support the Vietnam War, and beating Hippies. Mostly beating Hippies.


Can only think of this:

Can someone spot me on these mental gymnastics in calling Pepe "nihilistic"? What the hell is this "academic" on about?

So she wrote a book about it.

@22 "The poop hath been touched. Nay, it hath been seized with both hands."
Ooooh, squishy! (Isn't squishy one of their goodwords?) (Or is that furry?)


@28 "In the morning Ann and Milo went to the tomb and found Harambe sitting upon the open tomb saying, "Behold, Pepe is risen". and they were much astonished, and ran to tell the alt-right."

If *I* get a vote: You win the Alt Right internet -- and maybe even reality!

"Nihilistic is a bad word that makes her sad. And since the alt-Right is evil very bad bad think bad feels, it must also be nihilistic.

Now for the picture of Pepe on the road to Ephrata (PA). Picture at a direction sign or exit ramp for the lolz. Road trip, anyone?

I do like where Nagle admits that the Left is all about "utopianism, internationalism"!

Anybody who knows the ideology of the Left knows the implication is "Mass Murder's is basically what we're about."

And that's why they don't hate Stalin or Mao.

Long live Pepe, and praise to Kek!

Wait, she writes for "The Jacobin"?!? As in these guys:

"The ultimate political vehicle for the Jacobin movement was the Reign of Terror overseen by the Committee of Public Safety, who were given executive powers to purify and unify the Republic."

40,000 Frenchmen executed by guillotine or mobs, and she gets angry about a cartoon frog?

Wait, I just figured it out. She just likes killing frogs! 40,000 of them wasn't enough!

Anonymous Durster May 10, 2017 1:19 AM  

They can kill the character all they want, a meme only dies when people stop caring about it, and the SJW have shown they care so very deeply for Pepe.

By the by it seems 4Chan /pol/ has already latched on to their new mascot in response to Matt Furie killing Pepe, it seems the character Brett has stepped up to become Blepe https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/124729301/

Though Carleton Coon was still around into the 60s. Probably the last gasp for honest anthropology.

?? My best understanding is that Kek is a father figure, Pepe is the son now sacrificed, and Harambe is some kind of both the one that prepared the way and also the spirit that remains with the faithful.

Anonymous SciVo de Plorable May 10, 2017 5:04 AM  

Wait. That was my understanding before Pepe's death, which was necessarily incomplete. So Harambe prepared the way, and now the Holy Meme sanctifies the faithful in Pepe's name.

"There are many wonderful ideals for us to reclaim like beauty, utopianism, internationalism. Let them have their tedious nihilistic juvenile symbols.”

From a leftist academic, it's just amazing. Let's start with beauty - what? Has the left no completely delegitimatized classical beauty standards and archetypes? Has it not intentionally deconstructed the aesthetic to make politics first and last? And just look at the left - where is the "beauty"? Where are their soaring aesthetics?

Sure, they can have Utopianism and Internationalism - go right ahead. But beauty? Wow.

Road trip not necessary, thanks to Google.
