If I am reading this correctly, people at 4 channel thought it would be funny to convince the media that using the "ok" sign was a neo Nazi sign. It worked....and now white nationalists and neo Nazis are really using it...so anyone that gives the "ok" sign, a very widely used hand signal by just about everyone, is now a white supremacist?

WTF?

Coast Guard member in a Hurricane Flourance TV briefing is going to lose his career over it.

And I am sure he would risk his life without even thinking about it to save the idiots accusing him of being something he likely is not.

Hmmmmm...sure doesn't look like  nazi salute or nazi symbol. It is associated with the game you remember from school. In the past year or so on social media (particularly Twitter) people started doing it just as a dumb joke. Like its meant to be so juvenile and old school that its ironically funny. Well right now meme culture is actually flourishing on Twitter and Instagram, and this meme in particular took off.

I read the inspiration joke was to turn OK into OKKK.

And the press that loves to optimistically find racism in any nook or cranny that they squint into, ran with it as a monumental OMG!!!! moment.

Apparently a hurricane and a tsunami aren't enough news. We've now got to manufacture news.
