On Saturday two separate videos went viral, both showing snowflakes having epic meltdowns, caught on camera for the world to see, and I happened to run across them just as many of us were discussing in our comment section how woefully unprepared many of the younger generations are to survive any catastrophic event that befalls the nation.
IMAGINE THESE PEOPLE IN A DISASTER SCENARIO
We are going to start this a little differently than most our articles as we are going to show these two epic meltdowns first, asking readers to imagine either of these two screaming, temper-tantrum throwing adults, or their defenders, in any type of a disaster scenario.
Below the two videos, we will show that these are not the exception, but rather the rule when it comes to snowflake mentality, and how many of the younger generation do not have the basic skills to survive outside their campuses or parents homes, much less during a catastrophic event.
The first is a clerk at a vape store called Xhale City who went into a screaming, screeching fit because a customer was wearing a Trump shirt and a MAGA hat.
The second is of a man that thought just because he wears his hair long, puts on make up and dons earrings, he has the right to throw an absolute hissy fit because a store clerk called him "Sir," rather than Ma'am.
As you can see in the second video from DC Shorts, other snowflakes absolutely agree that liberals have the right to compel speech.
As to the first video, Xhale City put out a statement on their Facebook page informing the public that they had terminated the employment of the cashier in question that went off on the customer, telling him to "F**k off, calling him a racist, and even calling him a nigger, while another customer, an African American, stood in the same store.
While many social media users praised the actions of Xhale City in terminating the employee, others actually defended this type of mentality, with one taking the store to task for firing the clerk.
I use Evelyn's response as an example because this is the type of liberal mentality that frankly escapes my ability to process the thinking behind the statement. She seems to not understand the irony of her defending the clerk saying "they have the right" to refuse service, without acknowledging that the store owners "have the right" to fire him because they don't want the foul-mouthed snowflake representing them, especially since his tantrum went viral.
SNOWFLAKES WON'T SURVIVE IN THE AFTERMATH OF DISASTER
Children and young adults are not being taught the very basics. Earlier in December, CBS News published an article about "Adulting" schools that are opening across the nation. Yes, some millennials realize their parents and/or educators have failed spectacularly in teaching them the very basics like cooking, sewing, budgeting, time management and even how to deal with relationships or conflicts.
Experts say millennials are behind on these skills because many haven't left childhood homes. The U.S. Census Bureau said in 2015, 34 percent of Americans between 18 and 34 still lived with a parent. That's compared to just 26 percent in 2005.
The good news is that some of these younger people realize they need these skills. The bad news is, some teenagers cannot even perform the easiest of tasks, like using a manual can opener, as was shared by a reader on Saturday.
What you saw above, unfortunately, is not rare. In early December the Wall Street Journal penned an article about how consumption of canned tuna has dramatically decreased over the past three decades, for a variety of reasons, one of which was explained by Andy Mecs, vice president of marketing and innovation for Pittsburgh-based StarKist, who says many consumers cannot be bothered with opening and draining the cans, and "A lot of millennials don’t even own can openers."
Forget a national disaster that disrupts electricity on an extended basis, those without even a basic manual can opener, most likely will be very hungry within a week, unless they have someone more competent close by that is willing to feed and care for them.
In May 2018, the Boston Globe reported that Millennials have spurred the comeback of frozen foods because "The average millennial doesn’t have time to make a full meal with fresh meat and produce. More and more they’re seeing these products as viable options," according to Dewey Warner, an analyst at market researcher Euromonitor.
Good luck eating when one can't use their microwave or oven and are overly dependent on frozen dinners.
Now imagine either of the two people in the first two videos at the top of the article, or the millions in America just like them, in a disaster scenario.
No electric can openers, no phones, no microwave ovens, yet more than willing to throw outright temper tantrums if they don't get their way..... how many people, trying to survive a catastrophic event, are going tolerate that kind of behavior?
If the actual disaster doesn't do them in, and the lack of preparation or basic skills doesn't cause them to starve or freeze, then someone else is going to put them in their place...... or worse.
Imagine any of the snowflakes seen melting down in the videos below, surviving any type of disaster.
