The definition of snowflake.
If you’ve ever sat through a rightwing YouTube rant or spent five minutes on Twitter, you’ve likely heard the word “snowflake”. The term has supplanted the old standby of “social justice warrior” to describe a certain kind of liberal. This is thanks in large part to the far-right blog Breitbart, which lobbed it at anyone who criticized Trump’s incendiary rhetoric. But if you’re unfamiliar with the term, allow me to explain…
…In sum: self-imposed victimhood, an inflated sense of self-importance, an inability to handle criticism, and a totalitarian demand for respect are the criteria that define the snowflake. It’s ironic, then, that the public figure who most reliably projects those qualities at the moment is Donald Trump. America is soon to inaugurate its first Snowflake-in-Chief.
However, this one is a very dangerous snowflake. He is white as snow under his narrow, slitted eyes and he most definitely is flaky, as in stark-raving mad.
I know I am not the only one who is horrified and terrified since November 9th. I had to go into the city tonight and returned to hear hubby calling to me to come in and watch The BBC Panorama Show. It was about trump and putin. (Lower case intentional).
To say that pretty much the whole world is freaked out by these pair of misfits is an understatement. trump is not making any secret of his desire for putin. These two assholes have a tremendous amount of power or will have by the end of the week. It is quite clear now that they both want to see the EU break up, NATO dismantled and get rid of that German bitch.
I don’t know what exactly is true in the dossier, but one thing is certain. putin has trump by the short and curlies. And I mean short. Like his fingers.
Add to that the shocking behaviour of Preibus and Chaffetz. With gleeful smiles they told the whole world to fuck off. We ain’t fishing here and if that old ethics guy gets in out way, well then he’d better watch out. As the Scots said so well over the weekend, we are in the twilight zone. The GOP threw out any sense of patriotism with their refusal to have hearings for Merrick Garland last year. For me that was the final straw.
But fucking emails……
And Hillary…please don’t go to his urination.
