Why Hailing A Cab Is Problematic And Associated With Nazism
Alt-right users on 4chan have sent out messages to their followers to hail cabs all across the world to signify their allegiance with Adolph Hitler and Nazism. But besides that point, the very process of hailing a taxi is by its very nature associated with fascism and the far-right.
Ask yourself, "What am I doing by hailing a cab?"
By hailing a cab, you're imitating a hate symbol. Although, your intentions may not be for genocidal fascism, your hand sign says otherwise. What you're doing by hailing the cab is the same as giving the Nazi salute, also known as the Hitler salute and Sieg Heil salute.
DO NOT ASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH THE NAZI FASCISTS.
"How do I try my best not to do that?" you might ask.
1) First, stop hailing taxis, that's problematic and associated with Nazi Germany.
2) Second, stop doing the okay hand gesture famously known as the Circle Game because that's been appropriated by the alt-right as a "white power" symbol.
3) Third, stop memeing Pepe the Frog and all variations of him. We know most of it is used in a non-racist manner, but there are some racists using it and it pisses us off either way. It's best to steer clear of all frogs in general from Here Come Dat Boi to Kermit. You should especially stay away from memes that feature Honkler, Groyper the Toad, and Apu Apustaja also known as Helper.
4) Fourth, stop laughing at racist and sexist jokes and if you're the one spouting that hate speech than you're a garbage human. Since much of the mass media is unable to officially detect irony, it's best not to make any controversial jokes or statements. Everything and anything can also be racist and sexist now, so it's best not to even say anything. Shut up and obey, you slave!
Basically, whatever the alt-right touches is now a hate symbol.
The term "hail a cab" should also be avoided. "Call over a cab" would be a more appropriate way to say it, considering the images the previous term conjures up which are directly related to Nazism.
What should you do instead of hailing a cab? You should wave your arms around wildly until that cabbie notices. Also, remember to say no to fascism and the alt-right.
