Replacing the US bald eagle with a frog of peace
Quote:The United States, like many countries, uses predatory symbols to convey an image of strength and a warlike nature. In 2016 we feel it is no longer appropriate for our nation to use oppressive symbolism like the bald eagle. We request that the current administration change the national symbol from a bald eagle to a green frog. The frog is a peaceful, jovial animal whose mythological context is transformation into a prince. It's multicultural, honoring fortuitous foreign figures from Ch'ing-Wa Sheng to Kek. We kindly ask that you shift the symbol of the United States from one of oppression and violence to a green frog of peace and love.

A lovely idea. It would be so fun to see the White House making an awkward, dishonest response trying not to acknowledge the obviously subversive, second-degree aspect here.
Or better yet, imagine Trump gets elected and answers favourably the petition. Pepe the Frog becoming the official symbol of the US. Seriously.

RE: Replacing the US bald eagle with a frog of peace
Guys guys we should replace a historically significant symbol of our nation because memes.


This is why the current generation is fucked and it saddens me greatly that someone who found this forum should fall into that mindset.

RE: Replacing the US bald eagle with a frog of peace
To be honest I believe more into the Alt Right and other movements we are part of than in the Holy Scrap. And though I'm not American, any sane person of European descent has a right to be concerned about how the "land of the free" evolves. Here in Brazil I've noticed "progressives" that are hugely influenced and sometimes even financed by people with American passports. So, yes, I would be glad to see something representating our consciousness competing over an old symbol that has become virtually so void of its original meaning it is used by people who want to destroy us all.

Hey, guys. Serious suggestion here.

How about we replace this old, outdated, lame flag....

[Image: 41206818_thumbnail.jpg]

....with this modern twist?

[Image: vwrkX4S.jpg]

I put a lot of thought into this, would appreciate everyone's feedback.

Or, how about this aesthetically-pleasing updated take on a boring old "traditional" flag?

RE: Replacing the US bald eagle with a frog of peace
I would be glad to see the current Brazilian flag replaced by this one:

[Image: 1473939975-capture.png]

The current flag has been made by Freemasons who celebrated the creation of a republic bound to corruption as a "progress" of "humanity." If someone wants to burn it along with the Holy Scrap and other pseudo-humanistic stuff, I'm OK. Just let Dom Luís alone.

I am triggered by this image.

The girl has hidden her breasts with her hands. As a boob lover, my feelings were hurt, and thus, I demand a 100 year ban for Suits (and for his progeny as well) Big Grin.

Thank you mods!

RE: Replacing the US bald eagle with a frog of peace
Point of the petition was to mock the patronising, fake democracy of it all.
Kind of like trying to name that research vessel Boaty McBoatface.
(It became the ultra-respectable "Sir David Attenborough" instead.)
The actual name or symbol is beside the point, which is showing the fakeness of the process.

"You are free to vote for either Option A or Option A.
Thank us for being generous enough to pretend to care about your opinion. We're very humane, that way.
You have selected Option B. Thank you for voting for Option A."

You probably shouldn't have touched the eagle boner - it's a sensitive spot, for some.

Hey guys, I'm new at this whole graphic design thing, so don't be afraid to be honest in your feedback to me. What do you guys thing about this new spin on a traditional symbol? Do you think it has artistic merit? Should I get serious about turning this into a career?
