'OK' is now a hate symbol, the ADL says


By Sara Sidner, CNN

Los Angeles (CNN) — The "OK" hand gesture is now a hate symbol, according to a new report by the Anti-Defamation League.

The ADL added that symbol along with several others on Thursday to its long-standing database of slogans and symbols used by extremists.
The finger-and-thumb OK sign is universally known for meaning everything is all right or approval of something. But the ADL says while not everyone means it to be hateful, the sign has been co-opted by the alt-right.



"Bigly!"

In American Sign Language, that's the sign for the point of insertion for an enema, rudely inferred.


The Word's Foremost Authority.
