In a world where there’s seemingly nothing that liberals don’t think is racist, would it be possible to fool them into thinking that making an “OK” sign with your hand is a white supremacist symbol?
Apparently yes. When not tracking down Shia LaBeuf, the users of 4Chan started an initiative to try to convince liberals that merely making an “OK” sign is a new secret symbol being used by the Nazis among us.
But would anyone actually believe it? My friends Michael Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks were at the White House the other day, and posted a photo to Twitter:

And the response from hysterical liberals? That Nazis have officially infiltrated the White House!

While these “journalists” may be completely insane, the rest of the internet took the opportunity to relentlessly mock the shocking exposé they believed themselves to have uncovered.

To be honest, I’d feel embarrassed for Emma Roller and the faux-journalists over at The Independent if they weren’t sticking by their original narrative.
To their credit, this at least isn’t as stupid as when they declared “milk” to be a racist symbol.
