The Media Research Center is known to engage in weaponized humor from time to time, and their recent video has a go at the current crop of college millennials that seem to be emotionally crippled by everything from minor inconveniences to legitimately elected presidents.
In order to help “save the snowflakes,” the MRC created a video that informed viewers of the struggles these college students face in everyday life, such as hearing opinions they don’t agree with. They say that due to the the recent presidential election, the fact that President-elect Donald Trump is going to assume office has sent “snowflakes” scampering into safe spaces provided to them by the Universities they attend.
“The University of Pennsylvania offered puppies and kitties to cuddle,” explained one presenter.
“The University of Michigan Law School scheduled a post-election self-care workshop where snowflakes could color and blow bubbles,” said another.
The MRC even went so far as to create the site “savethesnowflakes.org” with a donation button. The site explains the plight of the snowflakes, and how you can help.
Our nation’s snowflakes are being cared for by colleges and universities across the country. These schools – no, HEROES – are financially supporting cry-ins, hot chocolate, bubbles, kittens, puppies and ponies, crayons, and Play-Doh to comfort these wounded snowflakes. Some schools even canceled exams and classes to ensure that America’s youth are treated with extra care and understanding during these difficult times.
But clearly, it’s not enough. State budgets cannot be expected to bear this burden alone. It’s going to take a far more sustainable funding source to ensure special snowflakes have the emotional support they need. In response, we here at the Media Research Center have launched the Save the Snowflakes project to respond to this emergency and bring crucial attention to this devastating human crisis.
