Iconic Sega mascot Sonic the Hedgehog has managed to gain attention in the form of something other than a horrible video game for once, as one attendant of a peace rally held in West Hartford (in reaction to the Charlottesville incident) could be seen wearing a Sonic shirt condemning fascism and racism – immediately propelling the wearer to encuckened Internet stardom as a result.

A tweet by U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal served as the instigator to the event as the Sonic fan could be spotted in the accompanying image:

The boy’s shirt stated “Sonic says no to fascism and racism”, immediately prompting reactions from many individuals, all doubtless awed by the memetic prowess of the left:

Identified as Ben Aech, the rabid Sonic fan has apparently bent the hapless hedgehog to his will in order to stand “against racism and fascism” – Ben’s comment on Richard Blumenthal’s tweet:
