Conservative Millennial: Snowflakes Exist on Both Sides
"Snowflakes" - the overly sensitive millennials - exists on both sides of the political spectrum.
That's what The Blaze's Allie Stuckey conveyed during her "Millennial Moment" segment, also giving advice on how not to be a snowflake.
Stuckey says the label has nothing to do with politics, but rather your ability to have a conversation with someone who has "an opposing opinion without name-calling or personal insults."
Here are the ways the conservative millennial says you can tell if you are a snowflake:
- If you want to shut down speech you don't like
- If you think your own violence is justified
- If you think your own sensationalized reporting is acceptable
- If you resort to ad hominem anytime someone disagrees with you
- If you're constantly casting yourself as a victim
On the flip side, Allie says "being angry about something, calling out actual injustice, or even being offended by something that is actually offensive doesn't mean you're a snowflake."
She adds, "That just means you're a sane human."
Here is the best way not to be a snowflake, according to Allie:
"Learn the ability to have an intellectual, intelligent conversation, admit when you're wrong, and hold fast to those things called principles."
Allie ends with good advice: check yourself before you wreck yourself, millennials.
