    'Thumbs Up' - The new symbol of White Supremacists

    I'm no sure if Carl Winkleton is a parody or a real person; his Twitter bio certainly is the stuff of parody: “Professor of Anthropology, Fighter for the less privileged, LGBTQIA+ advocate, Husband to a loving wife and father to a non-binary son. #Resist #StopTheHate.”

    Parody or not, the account alerted the SPLC, ACLU, ADL, Right Wing Watch and … Tariq Nasheed! … to look out for this new symbol:







    Carl Winkleton@CarlWinkleton





    Be on the lookout for people with the emoji in their Twitter names. White supremacists are now using this as a code symbol for their bigotry. #Resist #StopTheHate

    As the ADL has pointed out in its database of hate symbols, the “OK” sign was the fruit of a 4chan trolling campaign launched in 2017; the gag was to put out the word that it was a white power symbol and then dig up photos of celebrities and such flashing it, putting the Internet into a panic.

    The Democratic party seems to be as full of white supremacists as ever!

    I get the feeling that this Carl Winkleton is just fucking with people because he knows that left wingers are stupid enough to belief this and will lose their shit once again.

    Oh crap, do I have to go back to the "club" and tell them we got the signals wrong? I thought the OK sign was signaling white supremacy.
