World War Meme is quickly revving up, and the Russians are starting to dig into the trenches. In their latest wave of attacks, Russia’s UK embassy directed Pepe the frog memes at the United States and the United Kingdom. The embassy begged the question, “No trust in Britain’s best friend and ally?”

The Americans were truly caught off guard and are still pondering how to respond. Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin had a social justice warrior like response, calling the frog a “white supremacist symbol.”
Trump’s Russian benefactors use white supremacist symbol to taunt America’s greatest ally from their London embassy. Russia is no friend. https://t.co/dJHCZS1n66

One can only wonder how long it will take John McCain and Lindsey Graham to go on national television and suggest the United States respond militarily because of the meme. Until then, let the jimmies rustle where they may.
