About

Le American Bear, also known as Spurdo Burger, is a cartoon character based on an obese-looking Spurdo Spärde wearing a pair of sunglasses and a t-shirt bearing the patterns of an American flag. In web cartoons, the character is portrayed in negative stereotypes of Americans, such as obesity and gun violence.

Origin

According to a Finnish Wiki site Meemi.info[1], "Le American Bear" first originated on a Finnish imageboard's Ylilauta /int/ board. Eventually, on January 5th, 2012, the earliest known archived image surfaced on 4chan's /jp/ (otaku culture) board[2], depicting the American Bear as a tourist.

"Freedom Ain't Free"

"Freedom Ain’t Free" is an idiomatic expression used to honor the service of U.S. military members for defending what many consider to be core American values, such as liberal democracy and individualism. On 4chan, the phrase is commonly associated with an image macro featuring an overly proud Murican version of Le American Bear combined with a satirical caption ranting about American exceptionalism, conservatism and right-wing values, which has also spawned several derivatives based on the snowclone "X ain't free…"
