There are about a million ways to melt a snowflake. All it takes is about two seconds and half a brain. Here are five options:
- Use something other than mono-syllabic sentences.
- Stand respectfully and remove your hat during the National Anthem. Bonus points: place your hand over your heart and belt out the rockets red glare at nose bleed volume.
- Disagree using facts.
- Invite a common sense conservative to speak on a college campus, aka: free speech-free zones. Like David Horowitz.
In an April 13 email to supporters, Unbelievable: I Was Censored at Berkeley, Horowitz describes how the snowflake brigade reacted when College Republicans – gasp ! – invited him to speak at UC Bigotry on April 12:
In my case, the administration insisted that the speech take place at 1 pm, when most students are in class, and at a site a half mile away from the campus itself. But that wasn’t enough. UC Campus Police Chief Yao, in a moment that called up Lewis Carroll as well as Kafka and Orwell, told me that College Republicans could announce the event but not tell people where it would take place.
But the administration wasn’t through. Two days before the event, the College Republicans were summoned to a meeting with Vice Chancellor Sutton and UCPD Captain Yao to be told that in addition to the other burdens their club was going to be charged $5,778 for “security” and an additional $2,000 for rental on the room that was half a mile from campus.
Doubtless Chuck Schumer and Rachel Maddow would receive similar treatment, right?
At the same time UC Berkeley and universities like it gag me and other conservatives, they open their arms to racist organizations like Black Lives Matter and anti Semitic hate groups like Students for Justice in Palestine, providing them with offices and money and ample opportunities to present their rancid ideas at the times and places of their choosing.
Apparently the mere notion of affording students an opportunity to hear another viewpoint on “sanctuary” for illegal immigrants or questioning Berkeley support for Students for Justice in Palestine, a front group for the Hamas terrorists, is enough to send these dear hearts into meltdown mode.
Oh, boo-hoo. Can’t wait to see how these tender snowflakes handle the Real World – if they ever outgrow their pixie dust.
Turning a corner, the good folks at the Alliance for Gun Responsibility hosted a conference call yesterday. Being a good sport and all, I dialed in. A few take-aways:
- Alliance members committed to setting aside one day a week to testify in Olympia on various “gun safety/responsibility/violence” bills. (How many responsible gun owners do you know who are willing/able to do likewise?)
- They claimed 30,000 contacts with legislators during the 2017 legislative session. This blew past efforts “out of the water,” and represented “a strong showing for our coalition and our movement.”
- Senate Republican leadership is to blame for not moving HB 1501, which had bi-partisan support, forward this session.
- Alliance-backed bills that didn’t move forward this year – like HB 1501 – will get a full court press in 2018.
- The Alliance is committed to “getting a gun responsibility majority” in the Senate.
- Members represent a broad range of interests and diverse groups. They coalesce around “preventing gun violence.” The focus is on victims of gun violence.
- They’re all over social media, with coordinated email and Twitter campaigns directed at state legislators.
Bottom line: Alliance members are motivated and committed. They’re organized and mobilized. Are you?
