Wrigley Field banned a fan for making an "Okay" gesture. I'm not even kidding. Hilariously, the article breathlessly reporting on this censored the hand gesture.
"Such ignorant and repulsive behavior is not tolerated at Wrigley Field," Kenney said.
He made a "peace" sign right before that. Better throw him in prison, the crazy peace-loving fuck.
You dumb, stupid bastards. 4chan fooled you. They trolled you and you fell for it.
You're so empty-headed and eager to virtue signal, you've actually allowed an army of autists to trick you into believing a plain, ordinary hand gesture that's been part of our culture for centuries is some racist dog whistle.
Even the author of this ridiculous article acknowledges the stupidity:
That new meaning stems from a hoax by members of the website 4chan to "falsely promote the gesture as a hate symbol, claiming that the gesture represented the letters 'wp,' for 'white power,' according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
The hoaxers hoped "the media and liberals would overreact by condemning a common image as white supremacist," the ADL says.
and then proceeds to completely ignore that and carry on doing exactly what the hoaxers wanted anyway.
Worse, the media's desperately trying to figure out who the poor guy is so they can hound him even harder after catching the lifetime ban. You'd think after being sued for $250+ million over lying about the Covington kids these simpletons would learn to quit dragging innocent people through the mud, but I guess they need a harder lesson.
I hope they do find the guy. I hope they plaster his name and face up on the TVs and web browsers of the nation. I hope they do everything they can to ruin his life over this. And then I sincerely hope he lawyers up and takes them for every penny they've got for doing it. The only way we'll teach these assholes not to do this is to kick them in the balls repeatedly until they stop. In the corporate world, that's called the "wallet."
Fun fact regarding this article's title: the same idiots who think the "okay" sign is a racist dog whistle also think calling this "clown world" is also racist. They sure seem to always find their bogeyman, eh?
