Pepe Strikes Back! Smug Amphibian Meme Projected on WilmerHale Building

Published

on

Pepe is striking back! Late Tuesday evening, the mischievous frog meme appeared on the front of WilmerHale headquarters — the law firm representing Pepe’s creator.

As we have previously reported, WilmerHale is representing Pepe creator Matt Furie and has filed a cease and desist on use of the meme against Mike Cernovich, Baked Alaska, The Donald subreddit, and others — as well as threatening lawsuits.

Photos and video of the protest was provided exclusively to Big League Politics by an anonymous tipster. The tipster told Big League Politics that “projecting the content that WilmerHale is so desperate to censor onto its headquarters is a good way to let them know that their bullying won’t work.”

“If WilmerHale thinks it can use its status as a white-shoe DC law firm to silence speech with which its elitist clients disagree, they are sorely mistaken. I expect more things like this to happen in the future, as free speech advocates will continue to push back against WilmerHale’s Orwellian tactics,” the anonymous source added.

We reached out to Cernovich about the projection protest and he stated that he thinks it’s hilarious, even though he doesn’t consider himself a “Pepe guy.”

WilmerHale is Robert Mueller’s recent law firm and also represents clients such as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. There has previously been concerns from politicians and media about Mueller’s recent firm’s client list being in conflict with his role as a special prosecutor overseeing the Russia election meddling witch hunt.

“This Pepe image is clearly fair use, it’s protected under the First Amendment, and any lawsuit threat is frivolous,” Cernovich previously wrote of the lawsuit. He added that “this lawsuit threat is frivolous, and moreover, contains a knowing falsehood. The letter links to an article where I specifically disclaim any involvement with the alt-right. Thus this lawyer has committed fraud by lying about my being ‘alt-right.’”

Originally from the comic series Boy’s Club by Furie, Pepe gained popularity in 2008 with the “feels good man” reaction image. From there sad, smug, angry, and a variety of other reaction-Pepes were born. The comic frog has been a staple of internet culture ever since. It gained more popularity on the right after Hillary Clinton declared war on the cartoon frog during her campaign.

The anthropomorphic frog is a popular meme that originated, along with many other popular memes – from Doge to Scumbag Steve – on 4chan message boards. It is widely used across party lines by those who enjoy internet culture. While it has become a sort of unofficial mascot for those on the right, and certainly has been used by some who aim to offend, it is still just a reaction meme.

Anonymous sources have confirmed to Big League Politics that there are additional protests planned against the law firm. Feels good, man.

Green-Haired Freak Steals, Spits on MAGA Hat to Fight So-Called Racism

Published

on

Another day, another American harassed in public for supporting the duly elected President Donald J. Trump.

“17-year-old Ashton Hess was assaulted and had his hat spat on by an angry green haired “non-binary” person in Seattle,” wrote The Scoop, sharing a video on Twitter.

WATCH:

“This non-binary” person assaulted a 17-year-old and spat on his MAGA hat,” the caption in the video says.

Non-binary means that the person identifies neither as a man nor a woman.

Most of the video shows Hess chasing after the suspect, named Ethan Jackson, who took credit for the attack on Twitter.

“Take your racist ass and get the f*ck out of this state,” Jackson yells at one point in the video. “You’re not welcome here.”

Jackson said on Twitter that he was “fighting racist and nationalist propaganda.”

This attack comes on the heels of a similar one in a San Antonio, TX Whataburger, where a teen had a drink thrown in his face by a 30-year old man for wearing a MAGA hat in public.

Big League Politics reported:

Kino Jimenez ruined the evening of Hunter Richards and his friends, who were enjoying a late night meal at Whataburger when he stole Richards’ MAGA hat, cursed him out, and left the restaurant in huff.”

BLP Passage Ends.

Donald Trump Jr. was able to secure a new MAGA hat – signed by the President – for Richards after the Texas assault. Perhaps the same can be done Hess.
