    Pepe the frog was created as a prank to troll dunces into believing a cartoon frog was a white supremicist symbol and then you made a movie about it not realizing what the joke was.

    I see some 1-star reviews... I don’t think they actually watched this documentary. This is a surprisingly conscious and thoughtful approach to a character and his animator— so, yeah. I guess it hits a little too close to home for Some— 🤷‍♂️ only difference is— the animator in this doc actually cares about his characters.

    I never realized till recently the depth of hate for “the other” in American culture. I have been sheltered. Be it standard racist ideology or the newer incarnation of hate and misinformation found in the cult of personality QAnon which also originated on the same roleplaying message boards where Pepe was co-opted. You can see the people posting negative reviews here are sometimes members of that “cult think” modeled after Natzi Blood Libel propaganda. This film is a beautiful testament to the fact that love and inclusivity can triumph but that hate cannot be ignored when it begins to root and spread. Hate is a powerful force that consumes and expands if left unchecked. We all have a duty to put a “Peace Pepe” into the world every day in various incarnations, be it in acts of kindness or taking a moment to consider both sides of a political issue before forming an opinion of condemnation. It might be said that America will only survive this moment and future moments if the metaphorical “Peace Pepes” of thoughts and actions win out, and if we stand against hate. That is not something that can be achieved passively, as hate is not passive. It cannot be achieved by just one man like the kind cartoonist featured in this film, but by all of us firmly, actively condemning hate.

    It is astounding by reading some reviews how brainwashed somebody can be by Faux News propaganda and think that Adolf Trump Hitler's America is the right way forward... How reality denying those people can be is beyond my imagination.
  • Political Stunt

    That’s all this is. Just a Democrat using his cartoon as a political stunt. Don’t waste your time or money. Not entertaining at all.

  • A trip through Wonderland and through the looking glass

    The documentary’s story is an interesting one, in that it could only be told at this point in time. Not too long ago was I a fan of Pepe memes myself, and as we come up on the election, it can give a good look upon the mentality of “trolls” who use anonymity to hide sadism rather than doing actual trolling. It’s a very well made movie that, with the addition of the animated segments and Matt Furie’s art, will make you feel as if your being pulled through wonderland and shoved into the looking glass.
  • Extremely relevant and important

    I always knew Pepe as just “the meme frog”, so when he got co-opted by nazis (and the president), I thought it was extremely strange. This tells the story of how that happened, and the aftermath, extremely well.
