This is a repost of my weekly column at Da Tech Guy: When Snowflakes Melt.
There are a lot of stories running about the latest GOP debate, this is not one of them. Well, not really. I want to talk about when snowflakes melt.
Everyone knows snowflakes melt. Temperatures change and ice turns to water. This is a basic truth. Even the littlest child knows this – most experience it first hand when they catch one on their tongue.
At the debate this week, we saw two snowflakes melt by their own words. We’ve been told no two snowflakes are the same, yet these two candidates disprove that notion. This debate proved that John Kasich and Jeb Bush’s time in this election cycle snow flurry is over. They melted.
Switching gears slightly, melting is what is going on in Missouri and at Yale. Snowflakes of another kind are finding out their own special ‘truth’ is melting, yet the students at these institutions seem unaware they are the ones actually responsible for their own melting.
As these special student snowflakes melt, what is left is a puddle that exposes what they were made up of. So far, that’s been unsubstantiated claims of ‘poop swastiksa’ and false statements about the KKK.
Newsflash: There is no ‘safe space’ for snowflakes. They fall from the sky, land and melt.
I’d like to quote a bit from Professor Mike Adams, a criminology professor at UNC Wilmington. Adams employs reality as a heat source to aspiring new snowflakes.
“Let’s get something straight right now. You have no right to be unoffended. You have a right to be offended with regularity. It is the price you pay for living in a free society. If you don’t understand that you are confused and dangerously so.”

Do read the whole thing.
I’ve printed it out to read to my children when they are older. Some might call that extreme or an overreaction, but I don’t. Given the increasing trend of social issues being promoted over actual academics in our K-12 system right now coupled with the Democrats actually running campaigns on social issues, it would be foolish to think the special snowflake showers are going away anytime soon.
