Dozens of alt-right Twitter accounts began co-opting the Philadelphia Flyers mascot as an anti-Semitic figure just days after liberal protesters used images of "Gritty" to denounce a Saturday "Proud Boys" rally in Philadelphia.
Several memes and images emerged on social media over the past few days depicting the hairy orange Flyers mascot as a Nazi collaborator and espouser of anti-Jewish conspiracy theories. Gritty was superimposed into several historical pictures showing him standing alongside Gestapo officers and making disparaging comments about Holocaust survivors.

Dozens of alt-right Twitter accounts began co-opting the Philadelphia Flyers mascot as an anti-Semitic figure just days after liberal protesters used images of "Gritty" to denounce a Saturday "Proud Boys" rally in Philadelphia.




On Saturday, protesters against the alt-right "Proud Boys" used Gritty posters and costumes to denounce their "We The People" rally, the Daily Beast reported. Founded by Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, the Proud Boys tout masculinity while disparaging women, immigrants and opponents of President Donald Trump.
"Good night, Alt-Right," read one of the signs hoisted up by Philadelphia protesters against the alt-right event. "No White Supremacy In Our Gritty City!" read another poster. 
But the PushBack Campaign's anti-protest against the Proud Boys sparked backlash from alt-right forces online, which immediately created their own Gritty mascot images in a hijacking attempt similar to that of "Pepe the Frog." 
As Storyful's Michael Hayden first pointed out Monday, many of the tweets and Facebook posts showing Gritty tie him to anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant conspiracy theories.

"Do you know which group is funding and carrying out the importation of millions of third-worlders into Western countries?" Gritty Knows," reads the tweet highlight a Jewish Star of David symbol. 
"What's the difference between a cow and the Holocaust?" a close-up image of Gritty's crazed face asks in anothere meme. "You stop milking the cow after 70 years!"
