Comparing Generations: The Greatest Generation Vs. Generation Snowflake (A KJ Rant)
There has been a question gnawing at me for quite a while now. Ever since all of the Astroturf National Protests featuring the BLM, illegal aliens, and millennials in desperate need of a “safe space” started greeting average Americans like you and me when we turned on the television to watch the news.
If America was led by the likes of Modern American Liberals during the frightening days when Hitler rose to power after the Beer Hall Putsch and that faithful day of December 7, 1941, “a day which will live in infamy”, while at the same time the young Americans of that era were the millennials of today, would America have stood up the Axis of Evil?
Would the millennials that we are watching throwing hissy fits and railing against the President and traditional American Faith and Values on the Evening News and the Social Media have the guts to do what the Greatest Generation did?
Would Modern American Liberals be willing to make the sacrifices that my Daddy and Mother and the rest of their generation did?
I seriously doubt it.
There wouldn’t be long lines at the Armed Forces Recruitment Office trying to sign up to serve their country.
Heck, these days it is hard to get them to move out of their parents’ house, much less be willing to fight and die for their country.
There are those millennials out there who would rather defecate on our flag than to die for it.
And, while they talk a good game about being “Stronger Together”, when the rubber meets the road, it’s every man (or woman) for themselves.
Instead of the Greatest Generation, we are presently having to deal with the selfish “Generation Snowflake”.
It’s like watching an angry child in their Mom’s shopping cart at Walmart.
I want…I want…I…I…I…me…me…me…
No wonder they viewed Obama as their “messiah”.
As long as he had himself, he was never alone.
The last 48 hours have really driven this home to me.
Even with Former FBI Director Comey telling the world that President Donald J. Trump was not under investigation and did not collude with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election, Generation Snowflake like the child at Walmart who is told that they are not getting a toy that they see, firmly believes that if they keep crying, whining, and making stories up about how bad and evil that Trump is, somehow, Hillary Clinton, the deserving heir to their messiah, will magically become the President of the United States of America.
And, just like you have to tell a petulant child over and over again why they cannot have a toy, average Americans here in the Heartland are having to explain ad infinitum to Generation Snowflake that WE are responsible for Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States of America.
There was no collusion.
There was no obstruction.
There was no Russian inference.
There WAS a visceral anger over the poor stewardship and performance of the Previous President and a deep and abiding concern for our children’s and grandchildren’s future.
And a lousy, unlikable Democratic Presidential Candidate who was and is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
It is time for these precious snowflakes to understand that there are no safe spaces and you do not always get your way in this life.
It is time for the National Temper Tantrum to end.
And for those throwing it to place country over self.
Until He Comes,
