Lawsuit.

Eh, Garrison's got a point. Pepe's taken on a life of its own independent of Furie, so any "Pepe is dead" gestures on its creator's part aren't really relevant to the broader use of the character, however much Furie might dislike that use.


To which I reiterate: lawsuit.  They are using his intellectual property without his permission, he is legally capable of seeking damages from any infringing party he chooses.  You'd be surprised how fast touching someone's money gets their attention.

But they've been doing that for years now, and (at least under US law, so far as I understand it), if you don't actively defend your copyright, you're considered to have forfeited it.

That's trademark. Totally different.
I operate under Crocker's rules. Feel free to be mean to me, if it'll help us communicate more effectively.

Note that Garrison was quick to call his lawyers when 4chan were messing with *his* art.  Now he's been seduced by the alt-right, he has no problem with messing with other people's.

He'd have to prove that what's been happening has cost him any money, and that can be challenging sometimes.

True, but I'd be willing to bet that even a threat of legal action would keep the more organized parties involved away from his work.  I know that were cunts like this using my work for the promotion of outright Nazism, I'd turn the lot of them into paupers.

Good luck. Trying to tell 4chan what they can't do is like trying to herd cats. Cats that have malicious senses of humor and a serious case of misanthropy.
I also pissed in an old woman's sauce pan when I was a child. Have you?

So, cats.

Yeah this is amazingly hypocritical of Garrison.

Because nothing says PATRIOTISM like promoting ideology of a country that fought your country and going to a memorial to a rebellion that fought your country to declare loyalty to a political rival of your country.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I doubt you ever made a serious attempt to begin with. I know I haven't.

Alt-Reich subreddit "Physical removal" announces their first Jewish moderator. In fact, the mod team is very proud to make that announcement because it is proof that they are not Nazis. Nazis hate jews so a group that has a Jewish member cannot be Nazis.

Two things happen immediately:

a) The Nazis in the group get furious at the mention of der Juden and claim that their subreddit has been infiltrated. https://np.reddit.com/r/Physical_Removal/comments/6brt8h/shalom_rphysical_removal_makes_inroads_with/ (Guys, if you are pretending not to be Nazis it only works if you can get everyone to stick with the charade. When most of your group members proudly declare themselves as Nazis no one is going to believe you.)

b) Another subreddit "Against hate subreddits" has a thread about this where they laugh at them and in return the Nazis start crying about Fake-News. https://www.reddit.com/r/Physical_Removal/comments/6cs9wb/ahs_invents_fake_news_against_one_of_our_new_mods/
