Special Snowflake Is “Triggered” By Mural Of Flower Gun

Another day, another little snowflake looking to to make sure they can’t be hired by any decent company

(Daily Caller) A student senator at Pitzer College sent an email to the entire campus this week denouncing a mural showing a handgun with flowers coming out of the barrel because, the student complained, the mural “is emotionally triggering” and reminds him of “how many Black lives have been taken away because of police brutality.”

Pitzer is a small, private college in Southern California where the cost for one year of tuition, fees and room and board is $63,880.

The complaining student, sophomore Gregory Ochiagha, blasted out his email missive on Monday morning, reports the Claremont Independent, a student newspaper.

Getting beyond the utter stupidity of this nominal adult throwing a tantrum like a 3 year old, companies will look at someone willing to blast out a company wide email complaint and say “um, no, we do not need this.” But, he whined and whine and whined. From the Claremont link

Jessica Folsom (PZ ‘19) responded by providing additional background on the mural. “Just to preface this, I am not trying to dismiss how you feel or belittle your experience as a student of color,” she states. “This mural is actually representative of a nonviolence movement to protest the Vietnam War in the 60s. There’s a famous photo of a protester putting flowers in the barrel of a National Guardsman’s rifle and everything.” Folsom continues, “I thought it might be an important distinction to make between what the mural actually represents and perhaps the romanticized aesthetic of a gun which someone (maybe you?) could potentially mistake this for. I hope this helps.”

Fortunately, while we hear lots about the students suffering from Special Snowflake Syndrome, most really aren’t even close to being this nutty.

    That’s right. They are actually quite rare according to surveys. Just as most conservatives are not KKK members, most college students are not hypersensitive brats. What they all do have in common is the ability to blast twits, emails, facebook posts etc etc broadly. And each and every time some student whines, the right wing media is ready to blast it all over the interwebs to show how useless education is.

    Miss Folsom seems quite wise.

    Thirty years ago, any Special Snowflakesâ„¢ could whine nd moan and complain, and it didn’t matter. Today, any responsible human resources department is going to Google search an applicant’s, just to see if any stupidity like this turns up.
