Orb of Lightning

I still don't understand what pepe has to do with politics. It was never a particularly interesting meme in the first place, so how did it end up getting adopted by the alt right?

But why? What does it have to do with anything?

Pepe the frog was adopted by everyone, and everyone forged their rare Repes. It became a symbol of counterculture, rebellion, and everything else. Then the Anti-Defamation League declared that because some were "alt-right" both ironically and genuinely, all Pepes were now evil (much like coloring books are evil because you can draw hateful things in them). This made the alt-right latch on harder and the ironic usages to be multiplied. Couple this irony with unrelated Pepe-memeing centrists being called Nazis and you have even more absurdity.

Google Memo dude has a class action lawsuit filed against Google.
Some interesting stuff included in it.

Actively encouraging violence.
Recruitment for Antifa using company resources.
Someone issued a warning for reporting something to HR.
Secret Blacklists that set off silent alarms.
Anti-Conservative postings (calling most of them stupid)
Blacklisting employees from getting jobs elsewhere.
HR employees posting Anti-White comics.
Managers bragging about undermining conservatives career choices.

Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

We mustn't give any credence to rumors now, must we?

Sure is a good thing there are a bunch of examples in the actual documentation.

Now, what you should have aid was "Good thing we don't punish Google outside a court of law or call for googles head, right?"

That would be closer to my stated position you keep trying to twist.

"I must make two honest confessions to you, my Christian and Jewish brothers. First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.
I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress. I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that the present tension in the South is a necessary phase of the transition from an obnoxious negative peace, in which the Negro passively accepted his unjust plight, to a substantive and positive peace, in which all men will respect the dignity and worth of human personality. Actually, we who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with. Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured."
