Mexican Congresswoman Wants to Ban Pepe the Frog

Source: breitbart.com

Donald Trump wants a wall to stop illegal immigrants crossing the US/Mexican border, but one Mexican official wants a firewall to stop Pepe the Frog.

Well, not a firewall, but a fine. PRI party congresswoman Martha Orta Rodriguez wants any Mexican citizen who creates or disseminates internet memes to be arrested and slapped with a US$2000 penalty.

The congresswoman, who represents a district in Mexico that has over 2 million people living in poverty, said her proposed meme-ban would “deter violence or harassment [on] social networks” by preventing the spread of “harmful” or “humiliating” images.

Mexican netizens responded by taking to Twitter, sharing dozens of Photoshopped images of the politician on the #Ladymemes hashtag, including several comparing her to Jabba the Hutt from the Star Wars franchise.

Rodriguez says she just wants to stop internet humiliation campaigns (good job so far!), but maybe that’s just what she wants us to believe.
