In Topics:   Student and other Snowflakes  University  Kung Flu Stupidity
The topic key used to just be "Student Snowflakes", but I had to insert "... and other ..." at the time I ran into some guy who you really wouldn't have thought could be called a "snowflake" if you hadn't have read the Peak Stupidity post. Snowflakes come in infinite shapes and sizes is about a big working-class guy who still clammed up like a, well, clam, when I brought up just a little bit of race realism. It WAS in the great formerly-white* north too, the scene of the post Snow Town is now Bro Town.
The original Snowflakes that fall all year long are at the universities. I'd guess the universities are still the biggest snowflake making machines next to eastern ski resorts, though, as I will note in an upcoming post, Big Biz produces its share too. In a lobby of the university building my 10 y/o son and I were entering was a vertical plexiglas board, not, this time, made to be a barrier to stop the advances of the Kung Flu, but for a place to put one's thoughts. There were 2 markers and 3 colors of lined paper post-its, there for people to write comments and stick them up.
My son showed me his three notes from another day, when he came with his Mom. "No Masks" (with a drawing), "No vaccine", and "Shut down the CDC" were his thoughts. These did not match at all the thoughts written by students twice his age. Most of the notes were downright sickening in the naivety and juvenility. The brainwashing must have gone very very deep with the students who wrote the 100 or so notes up there. "Less judgement!" said one. I mean, it USED TO say that. Now, it has "More judgement, and that comment sucked." written below that.** That was me, not my son.
I had to put up my pending-trademarked "Bend over. Take my prick. - Dr. A. Fauci, Amateur Proctologist." too, and a few more I can't remember. As of yesterday, my son says they are still up. That's amazing.
We are seeing what happens when these snowflakes collide with the real world at ground level. America could take some of that back when we were the world's most powerful economy that could easily absorb a little of it. We are in for hard times, and when the SHTF most of these snowflakes will melt like the Wicked Witch of the West. I don't want that for this boy. You've got to teach them young. I'm very proud of him for this.
As a self-rebuttal, I will say there may be a majority of other students who aren't down with all the stupidity I saw on that board. However, they would most definitely be a silent majority and ignore the notes, say nothing, and not want to be seen on cameras defacing the Notes of the Snowflakes. The fact that they won't makes them, well, a little flakey themselves ...
PS: Also, even 6 months earlier, I'm guessing my wife would have had none of that behavior from him. Now, he says she stuck them way high up on the board to make it harder for someone to pull them off! She's really coming around. "I told you so" doesn't apply to women though, apparently...
* ... and I'm not talking Global Climate Disruption™ here either!
** I was about to write "and better spelling" too, as I am used to "judgment" - no "e" after the "g". You see it written both ways, though I just read that "judgement" is more the British style and "judgment" the American spelling. I guess "fewer Limeys" would have worked.
