“America’s liberal arts universities have long been safe zones for leftist thinking, protected ivory towers for the pseudo-elite who earn their living writing papers nobody reads about gender roles in the poetry of Maya Angelou.” -Ben Shapiro
Progressivism has usurped the universities that have long been foundations of rising generations, and is now creating a fact-deprived and unstable foundation for Generation Snowflake and conditioning them to further the liberal agenda within a falsified image of individualism. With bizarre piercings, dozens upon dozens of “genders,” skimpy styles, vulgar language and a myriad of shaved heads and rainbow hair, they believe they are special and non-conformist… While simultaneously conforming to every order and aspect of the progressive agenda.
How do we stem the tide of eminently all-encompassing safe spaces, fast-approaching restriction of thought, and socially accepted violent opposition to any opinion that is not fully liberal?
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” -Abraham Lincoln
First- we need to reevaluate our values. The United States Of America was purchased with the blood of our founding fathers, men of character, grit, determination, steadfastness, and unmovable courage.
They sacrificed their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to build a nation that would not bow to foreign powers, and would not fall to foreign threats. America will not be taken down by an external menace. If America falls, it will be because her own children have sacrificed her for opulent lives, faux fortune, and feigned honor. America must relearn the value of freedom, and what freedom means.
Progressives have warped the values of freedom and twisted their meanings. Freedom OF religion is now considered to be freedom FROM religion. Free speech is now only acceptable if it isn’t hate speech and they label even mild disagreements as hate speech.
If we allow our freedoms to be reinvented, redefined, and fundamentally changed, we cannot be surprised if the America we know and love becomes very, very different.
What are our values? Standing for truth and Constitutional freedom is very uncomfortable, even dangerous in modern society.
So the first question we must ask ourselves… Where do our loyalties lie? Are we solely and completely committed to preserving untainted American freedoms for the generations to come?
If we want to sustain our nation as the land of the free and the home of the brave, we must be value her enough to fight for her, to speak up for her, and truly cherish her.
“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination, and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” -Harry S Truman
Second- we need to reevaluate what we are made of.
Are we composed of the courage, the imagination, and the unbeatable determination to fight for America? And if we do not, we must ask ourselves how do we obtain it?
Preserving The United States Of America will be a test of our metal, our endurance, our work ethic, and our hearts perhaps like we have never faced before. Are we ready to withstand the storm of liberal hate? Are our minds furnished with true history, our spirits equipped with genuine bravery, and our hearts endowed with authentic patriotism?
We must be steadfast in our souls if we want to preserve America.
We must determine who we are as people, as Christians, and as Americans. Generation Snowflake needs to be challenged to observe facts, to recognize freedom, and to rise up, seize the day, and love their country.
America was not built on fear. When settlers, pilgrims, and prisoners braved the wilderness to establish a nation, they had no thought of “safe spaces.” They were prepared to fight for a country of God-given liberty, and so must we. We cannot be driven by fear or timidity. We must be sure of what we are made of, and stand firm in the face of adversity.
“The American Dream is that any man or woman, despite of his or her background, can change their circumstances and rise as high as they are willing to work.” -Fabrizio Moreira
Thirdly, we must be absolutely clear on the definition of the American Dream. Generation Snowflake loves to spew an “anything goes” profession, claiming that the American Dream is being whatever you feel like, while doing whatever you feel like, while making everyone around you completely support and celebrate whatever you feel like.
The American Dream is not about being comfortable. It is not about riding the unpredictability of your day-to-day emotions. It is not about receiving things that make you happy. The American Dream is “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” and we are not entitled to anything but that.
You have the right to your life, you have the right to Constitutionally protected freedoms, and you have the right to pursue your personal dreams.
The key word being pursue, insinuating that you must work for your dreams. It is up to YOU to work hard, and no one else is obligated to hand you anything. The American Dream requires effort, and it cannot be achieved through handouts. You cannot rise to high levels of success through governmental support.
We must be willing to work hard, and work hard to teach the next generation to work hard. The American Dream is about the freedom to achieve any level of success, no matter where you came from. We must applaud the American Dream, and those who come here legally to pursue it.
“I am proud to be an American Citizen.” -Robert Purvis
Fourthly, we must stop being ashamed of America. This is our nation, and if we want to keep our freedoms, we must be proud of our country. We must stop trying to compare her to aspects of other countries, and we must stop believing the liberal media that paints us as evil. European socialism should not celebrated as it is on the college campus snowflake factories. Hating America will result in her demise. Learning from her mistakes, however, will make the nation stronger.
Generation Snowflakes needs to learn what it means to love America, cherish her opportunities, and applaud her freedoms. And we are responsible for demonstrating that love. We must be proud to be American.
This ties into the fifth and final point; We must remember who we are.
“It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.” -Donald Trump
We are Americans. We are descendants of pilgrims, pioneers, and immigrants. We are the heirs of an experimental idea put into motion by men of unfailing patriotism and bravery, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Franklin.
They fought, bled, and died to create and preserve a nation to be handed down the generations.
If we are not willing to do the same, Generation Snowflake will freeze it, reshape it, and inevitably lose it completely. We have to check our values. We have to be sure of what we are made of. We have to be clear and determined about the American Dream. We have to be proud of America.
We have to remember that we are Americans, children of the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
