beatnik = snowflake?

 


not sure it translates...

I wasn't being altogether serious. Yes, when you replace the picture, of course they can be connected, or at least seriously compared. They both fought for their rights, although the Labour movement had no genuine interest in egalitarianism (and therefore had the capacity to switch between communism and fascism) whereas the civil rights movement, reflected in the picture of black protesters, was fundamentally tied to classical liberalism (taking the fascist, and arguably even communist, options off the table altogether). Meanwhile the snowflakes in the picture I posted don't seem to know what they really believe. Hence why they're invariably so crap at debating.

Although as a vehicle for memes, they're the .gif that never stops giving

In theory at least, they could've been a part of the labour movement, like the Dockers unions in the 60s that supported Enoch Powell.

 


The people protesting about black people on religious grounds are their own thing altogether - and I imagine in reality the people in the 'Fire Nigger Workers' photo probably had more in common with them than the ones in the Dockers photo.

I'd never thought of it before but I'm sure some Beatniks would now be considered snowflakes. Although I'd probably put the more interesting examples like Bukowski or Burroughs in the Libertarian camp. (Although were they really even Beatniks to begin with?)

That crying neo-nazi was snowflake as fuck

i dont know what they believe, i’d have to ask them

but why don’t you take them by the hand and help them find out what they believe in anyway?

yes i get that polemics and rigor have been de-emphasized in academia in favor of “everyone is entitled to their feelings and opinions,” but in the real world the skill is still required.

you’d be doing them a huge favor...

the other thing is that i can’t support or fight people based on their machismo or apparent toughness. i mean, with the nazi, any reason to make fun of him is a plus, but i’m not going to kick my allies in the head because they’re pudgy or gender ambiguous and don’t look like cage fighters or amazons or whatever. yes, i’m sorry that some of them can’t find their ass with both hands, but they are much closer to me than their opponents.

take the ows kids from a few years ago—i knew from the start they were doomed to fail. they were just kids! they wanted 1000 contradictory things. but now some are growing up to do some interesting things. so i’ll take the snowflakes and their confusion over the simplemidedness of young republicans or the hitler youth or whatever alternatives are out there.

The killer at the heart of Trump's racist ad was set free—by Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio

The real story of the killer at the start of Trump’s ad is that he was deported under Clinton and returned under Bush. And that Joe Arpaio had a chance to deport him, but was too busy making people wear pink jump suits and march around in the sun to deal with a repeat offender.

no snowflake either

demonrail666 11.02.2018 03:59 PM

I'd never say he was.

I don't know where you're going with that. All I was saying was there's a coherent (but problematic) Leftism, associated with sections of the Labour movement, that wasn't interested in, and actively opposed, egalitarianism. To highlight the existence of something isn't to endorse it. Although I do find their position interesting, from a purely intellectual point of view. I compared it with a picture of what I consider ideologically incoherent modern-day campus protestors that, for the most part, I consider expressing little more than a lifestyle choice, rather than offering any kind of interesting political position. I haven't, nor would I ever, say the same thing about the civil rights movement.

rump's Chief Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow doesn't know that there is, in fact, a Federal Minimum Wage (it's all of $7.25/hr), and he's against it as a general idea...

oh.

i was just illustrating what i said above—

that the snowflakes are my people.

the left also has always disappointed me. failed promises, ineffectual tactics, irrelevant tangents, unwinnable battles... . but in the end, i just can’t relate to the wingnuts. i’m with the losers. it’s my fate.

was at the barbershop the other day, listening to a bunch of old white men, their jokes, comments, observations, etc... i can relate to them as human beings, but culturally, they say so many cringeworthy things..., ayayay... not worth arguing, might lose an ear in the process.

yep. i’d rather listen to snowflakes whine all day. grates less than wingnut laughter.
