And I'm not talking about winter.
I'm speaking of college-age kids thinking they shouldn't be offended, and their perceived self-importance in the world.
Some snowflake goes on a hunger strike at the University of Missouri, based on perceived racial indifference by the then university president. In solidarity, the football team goes on strike. Now as anyone down South knows, you don't mess with college football. Down here, being the captain of the football team is more important than becoming a captain of industry, so when football revenues were affected, the president had no choice but to step down. These snowflakes even demanded a say in choosing the NEXT president of the university!
At Princeton, some snowflakes want to remove pretty much every reference to former Princeton (and U.S.) President Woodrow Wilson, mainly because he was a racist bastard.
At college after college, snowflakes across the country are demanding mandatory sensitivity classes on race and gender; they're protesting speakers whose views they don't agree with and they're demanding "safe-zones" be established where so-called "offensive" speech can be prohibited so that their sensitive ears will not be harmed by something that might hurt their delicate ears.
What kind of generation has this country raised?
OK, props to these snowflakes for being socially aware of equality issues that still exist in this country, but everything after that is a failure and escalation of epic proportions.
Today's college kids have had everything handed to them compared to what was available to past generations; endless scholarships and grants, high tech labs and study materials, and information available to them at the touch of their precious i-Phone or i-Pad. Too bad they're some of the dumbest people to ever walk the face of this earth.
You're living in America, snowflakes! We're not known as the Land of the FREE and Home of the Brave for nothing, you know. It's apparent that none of you have ever read the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (you know, that great document written by 18th century slave holders). Heck, most of you couldn't even articulate what a "right" actually is, BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO DICTATE WHAT SPEECH IS OFFENSIVE AND WHAT IS NOT. But I'll make it easy for you. A right is something you can exercise by yourself, or with the willing participation of others.
These are rights: Freedom of Speech, Assembly, Religion (or lack thereof), the right to own and protect yourself with firearms.
These are NOT rights: Healthcare, Freedom from offensive speech, College education.
How truly sensitive are these snowflakes that they cannot stand up to or acknowledge a difference of opinion? "Freedom of speech for me, but not for thee" is their motto. What's next for these snowflakes? Removing the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument because they both owned slaves? Destroying books that use offensive terms and concepts?
Get this through your heads, snowflakes; you're really not all that important in the great scheme of things, and the vast majority of you never will be. You'll never get ahead denying others that which you think you deserve.
Hi! I'm Dave Richard, your host. I hope you enjoy your visit. We'll be talking about current events, politics, the occasional sports (I'm a HUGE New England Patriots fan, so get over it), and some "Get off my lawn!" issues.
