Gab mocked for ‘The American Dream’ picture with dog holding gun at BBQ, Internet asks ‘need lead with steak’
Social media website Gab, known for its far-right users, went on Twitter to share a message about guns. The picture posted on Saturday went viral on the social networking site for the most bizarre reason.
Gab wrote the picture in the tweet, “Our way of life needs to be preserved” and posted a photo of a white suburban family cooking on the outdoor grill and a dog – all of them carry guns, even the dog.

As soon as Gab posted the picture on Twitter, people started sharing and mocking it. There has also been some confusion about why the dog is armed along with the family.
“What the hell is that? Why does the dog have a gun too?” Asked one as he retweeted the picture. “If you can’t arm your dog it’s not real freedom,” tweeted one user, mocking the image. “This is literally nobody’s way of life,” said another user.
The dog was the highlight of the picture, apparently holding a thumbless gun. “The guard is coming to get my dog’s gun,” tweeted one. “I don’t know, giving guns to children and dogs doesn’t sound like it is going to save any kind of life,” said one. “The American Way of Life: Give your dog a gun and let him use it as a barbecue tool. That’s on the Constitution,” joked another user.
I don’t know, giving guns to children and dogs doesn’t sound like it is going to save any kind of life. Lmao https://t.co/TwwfKKpgLO

Pointing out some very important facts, one user said, “If you think about it, it makes perfect sense that the same person who created a flawed D-class social network for Nazis would think that ‘our way of life’ a dog pose includes a gun with no opposing thumbs and a father using a Glock as a spatula. “

Social media users also criticized the idea behind the picture. “From the fascist website http://Gab.com A way of life in which the family and the dog are armed, father and son have no trigger discipline. The son points a gun at his mother with the trigger finger & there is live ammunition near a hot grill? Go ahead! #DarwinismInAction, “one user tweeted.
One turned to Gab and tweeted, “You want some lead with this steak?” Also, I’m never going to point out the irony of a “free speech network” blocking replies to their tweets. “Another user said in the same vein,” Why does the free expression social network block replies to their tweets? “
“Do you want some lead with that steak?”

This went on until someone referred to the source of the image on Twitter. As it turns out, the image of the suburban white family holding guns like it’s no big deal is actually the cover for the video game ‘The American Dream,’ which is a satire about gun culture in the nation. “This is art from a @samuraipunk video game that mocks the American obsession with violence lmao,” pointed out one user.
A few hours later it looked like Gab wanted to repeat the message and tweeted, “Our way of life must be preserved.” But this time the report released two pictures of a white and a black family holding guns.
