I don't know who coined the word "snowflake" for today's generation of limp-wristed, homosexual-supporting, transvestite-loving, pro-feminist, anti-Trump, pro-Bernie, pro-socialism, opponents of income inequality and the free market types but it is a great word. They are tender, delicate and prone to melt when subjected to the slightest amount of heat. They look nice but accomplish nothing except to make things soggy. They also believe that sticks and stones can break their bones but words can hurt even more. Because they are terrified of words they do not like they demand that their god of civil government create laws, rules and regulations that protect them from ever having to hear something they do not agree with. Don't believe me? Look at this poll from Pew Research:
The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States (an antiquated document used exclusively for ceremonial purposes in the new and improved Socialist Democracy of Amerika) states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Forty percent of snowflakes (ages 18-34) want the civil government to create laws violating the First Amendment's protection of free speech. By comparison, a whopping twenty four percent of my generation (boomer) agree that free speech should be impeded and criminalized by the state. I am disgusted and ashamed of my generation, but not as much as I am disgusted by the snowflakes. Sadly, even twelve percent of the folks in this country who are over 70 years of age believe that certain types of speech should be criminalized. What is wrong with these people?
Snowflakes have been raised and educated by government school teachers intent upon molding them in their liberal image. As their parents increasingly abandoned their moral responsibility to teach them, they gladly turned them over to the government schools for indoctrination. The "teachers" operating those government schools were proud to receive them. They quickly abandoned the three Rs and initiated their programs of mind control designed to bring about their vision of a utopian society. In their society the reality of original sin is ignored. They believe that with proper indoctrination every person can become a proper liberal like themselves, filled with love for their fellow man and willing to spend as much of their richer neighbor's money as is necessary to help them.
One of the primary doctrines in the church of government school is the necessity and sanctity of self esteem. Every person suffers from low self esteem, they are told, but that can be overcome by a concerted program of affirmations and support. Deadly to the process of self esteem building is any sort of negative idea, especially if that negative idea happens to be true. The end result is that everyone grows up believing he is great and can do anything he wants to with little or no effort. The real world does not operate as the snowflakes have been told it does so when they run smack dab into it they end up moving back into their parent's basements where they spend their days playing video games and discussing the virtues of socialism with one another. They especially like Bernie's proposal to eliminate all of their student debt.
In order to build self esteem in everyone it is necessary that each person be fully indoctrinated in the importance of always telling other folks only what they want to hear about themselves. A great deal of time and energy is expended in seeking to learn how others desire to be addressed, so no offensive speech ever comes their way. The end result is that 40% of the snowflakes living among us want their god to craft a law requiring all citizens of the SDA to only tell other people what they want to be told about themselves. Those who do not do that will be subject to criminal prosecution and punished for their sins.
Dan Issel, former coach of the Denver Nuggets, got fired for shouting "Shut up you drunk Mexican" to a drunken Mexican-American who was taunting him from the stands. He was labeled a racist for his actions despite the fact that the man needed to shut up, was drunk and was a Mexican. How telling the truth ends up being an example of prohibited and criminal speech is something only a snowflake can understand. I certainly never understood it.
This Friday is St. Patrick's Day. Irishmen, and wannabe Irish, will flood the streets in thousands of acts of drunken debauchery this weekend. A ski resort in Summit County, about an hour from Denver, has a run called the Drunken Irishman, or at least it used to be called that thirty years ago. It has probably been changed since the last time I skied down that run. I always thought it was an appropriate name for a ski run since it acknowledged the fact that the Irish are notorious drinkers. Even the Irish themselves love to brag about how much they drink and how drunk they can get. Why should we pretend that is not true simply to protect the sensibilities of snowflakes?
Welshmen are insulted every single day in this land. Every time somebody says, "You welshed me," we have an example of offensive speech. I don't understand why that phase is so offensive because the Welsh are famous for their lying and thieving ways. We stay away from the hard drink, unlike the Irish and the Scots, in order to be completely sober when we transact business with our drunken neighbors in such a way as we come out ahead on our transactions. King Donnie should be proud of the Welsh because they always win their business deals. The fact that the people we were dealing with were so drunk it was easy to take advantage of them is their fault, not ours.
Next time you are in the presence of a snowflake go ahead and tell an ethnic joke. You can even tell a Welsh one if you want to. I won't be offended. Ethnic jokes are almost always based upon stereotypically true characteristics. That is what makes them funny. Nobody ever makes jokes about the stodgy Irish or the drunken Brits because it is just not true. So go ahead and tell your joke. Then watch with glee as the snowflake runs away, covering her ears and crying out to her god of government to come and arrest you for your sins.
