Default The thread of howling snowflakes

This thread is to share stories about the special snowflakes of this world wailing with agony and indignation after allegedly being gravely offended by some heinous violation or other of the sacred dictates of political correctness.

Some snowflakes claim to be indignant because Jerry Rice is getting paid big money to do ads for Popeye's.

I had to look that up. "Snowflake" is a new slang to me. I guess I grew up with "bleeding hearts."

One I'm hearing a lot is "SJW," or social justice warrior. That one gets used very recklessly. I've been called that name on two different message boards, but I'm not one of those. I think to a lot of people it just means something like "bastard."

Snowflakes are people who demand safe spaces and trigger warnings, and who look for flimsy excuses to pretend they're indignant about political incorrectness.

Someone is always being "shamed" about something or other. Usually about their body.

Usually they drive a Subaru hatchback. Comes complete with the animal cage in the back and plastered with bumper stickers, highlighted by the ever classic "coexist" one.

Now can you imagine the howls if someone had called Chelsea Clinton a dog? But Joss "Fuck Marvel!" Whedon is a liberal, of course, and he's attacking a conservative politician's daughter, so he gets a free pass about this. Anyway, does Whedon own a mirror, and does he think he's a hottie?

^I'm glad I'm not on any social media. I'd probably get constantly fed up with celebrities.

I give two craps about the opinion of politics by people in entertainment. Least of all actors and musicians. Just stick to making my movies please.

It's our fault as Americans though. Our culture has put these narcissists on a pedestal for so long that we deserve their idiocy.

Some people are finally realizing that this stuff is backfiring on celebrities and their causes. Nobody with shit for sense thinks these smug narcissists have any special insight about anything except entertaining people. That's what they should stick to.

Worse yet, imagine the howling if someone called one of the Obama girls a dog. That person would never have another job for as long as he lived.

The people who are doing all this howling have no idea how sick and tired of it most people have gotten. It's blowing up in their faces, and they're too stupid to know it.

This thread reminded me of the term "safe spaces". I thought this was a joke the first few times I heard about it as an actual thing. This is supposedly somewhere our worthless pussy children can go when faced with ideas that hurt their feelings? This is for real?!?!

This is a perfect example of what Carlin would call the pussification of the United States. This kind of mentality needs to be stamped out if we are going to make it as a culture.

This pretentious caffeine pusher and professional snowflake just can't keep his nose out of politics, can he?

When this story broke, the media trumpeted loudly that it was "a terrorist attack on Muslims." The implication was that non-Muslims did it.

Now we're well into the second day, and you'll still have to look long and hard to find any disclosure in the media that the suspects' names are Bashir al-Taweed and Hassan Matti.

You can draw your own conclusions as to why that information is being held back and buried.

Do media snowflakes really have no idea how most people view reporting of this nature? Do they really not know that it's having exactly the opposite effect that they so badly want, and that they've destroyed their own credibility with this behavior?

I've always kind of thought adversity was there to make us stronger and experience makes us wiser. I'm not sure how avoiding issues like an ostrich and opposing viewpoints will necessarily strengthen an argument.

The world isn't always a nice place, hiding your head in the sand in order to falsely believe it is will get you nowhere.
