Snowflake Identification 101

A few weeks ago, a friend who describes himself as being fully in the Bernie encampment made the following statement, and I can’t say it any better than he himself could.

For exhibit A, I present the exact conversation as it took place on social media: Names and faces have been blocked to protect privacy. We shall call my snowflake opponent…The Bumble.q1 response1

My opponent in Blue, myself in Red. I highlighted the parts of his statement in blue that I thought were critical.

 

So here I was, watching an adult male (from here known as “The Bumble”)  asking a group of other adults their feelings on the first month of Trump’s administration. Do they feel that he is doing a good job thus far? Are we faring well as a country? What do you like and what don’t you? Is he effective?

In my response, in red, I gave my own, personal answer, and the reasons why I think Trump and his staff are completely able and effective for the rigors of the next four years, despite all the loudmouths in liberal government and the media. As you can see from the screenshots, my differing opinion was quickly shot down with “Your information is wrong on so many levels and points. I’m sorry you feel this way.” I gave him plenty of opportunity to refute with his own opinions and information, but he ignored the opportunity for an open discussion and instead took his toys to another playground, a typical play of snowflakes leftists.

The Bumble had no problem telling me I was wrong, but he could not defend himself against what I said, so he just unfriended me. Now he won’t see my abhorrent opinions encroaching on his newsfeed. He needn’t worry that I might jump out of the bushes wearing a ballgown in red, white, and blue trying to cram a “Make America Great Again” hat on his head.

One of the prime ways to identify a special snowflake: If they can’t get you to agree with them, they will do their best to humiliate you and shut you down. Commonly, this will be accompanied by accusations of racism, misogyny, classism, homophobia, xenophobia, and islamophobia, and, God forbid, being an old, white dude. At least our founding fathers get to be dead white dudes and don’t have to listen to this nonsense.

Vocal conservatives: keep your eyes peeled as to who might be unfriending you throughout the year. Might save you on stamps come Christmas.

How To Be a True American in these Troubled Times

An Editorial From an Average, American Citizen, after reading these results, that I’d been given the results to share.

“If Hillary was the right woman/candidate to run this country, the results of last nights election would be different. If Trump is as unfit to run this country as people claimed he is, he would not be president-elect at this very moment.
Its ridiculous that people are already throwing around impeachment as an option because they dislike Trump, especially when he hasn’t done anything to warrant the word “impeachment” (which btw Inauguration Day isn’t till January 20th so you might wanna actually come up with legitamate grounds to have Trump impeached before you start babbling stupidity) to be thrown around…now HRC is a different story but she is not/won’t be president so we don’t have to even worry about that.
I’ve seen people already say they’re hoping Trump gets assassinated and that his whole family dies out…and these are the SAME people spewing ignorant remarks about how we as a people “chose hate over kindness. Chose taking a step backwards over progression”. It makes me sick.
Whether you voted for Trump or not, he is our future President of our United States. WITH that title, comes the duty of the people who live in the USA as a whole to respect the POSITION, even if we don’t particularly love the person holding it.
And I’m sure it will happen, because everyone is entitled an opinion but please do not take this status and attack me and what I just said. I will not be answering any negativity so don’t waste your time. This was simply a post to say whether we like it or not, this is how it is and we as a people need to respect the Presidency and stop running our mouths about things that maybe should have happened, things we wished hadn’t happened, but simply did/didn’t. So move on and be proud to be an American. ”    Fin.

With great thanks to my guest speaker, you rock it girl. If anyone else thinks them worthy of submission, I’d be interested curious to read your writing from both sides of the aisle. 

I’ll add subject matter, form, etc. Go get those pens going, kids.
