Only Democratic Socialists

At the Democratic Socialists of America Convention, Clapping, Chatter, and Gendered Language Are Considered Triggering
Democratic socialists earned some ridicule this weekend after video clips from their annual convention—which showed attendees objecting to clapping, disruptive chatter, and the use of gendered language on grounds that all of these things were triggering—appeared online.

One person took to the podium to thank his fellow comrades for waving their hands in the air instead of clapping, since sudden, loud noises can be harmful for the easily perturbed members of the audience.
There are two pretty scary facts about these dweebs.... (1) there’s a disturbing number of them, and (2) they sometimes breed, when they’re not too busy being triggered.

In the natural world, this problem would be self-limiting since refusal to recognize reality often yields life-altering consequences. Alas, the modern world has so much un-natural about it.

This is a far different world that Mrs Oldgringo and I grew up in. Heck, it's a far different world that our grown sons were born in. Where will it end?

Amazingly hilarious snowflakes. TAM is right, some of them are going to breed.

So in the event of a CME and we are suddenly thrown back to 1886, these people will die in droves from the lack of a sympathetic modern world!

This made my day. The whole thing is more believable as a South Park episode than real life. My coworkers thought I was bonkers earlier today from laughing so much.

I read this article to my son yesterday, and his eyes rolled like a slot machine.

Ah, a preview of next July 13-16 Democratic National Convention. Buy popcorn stocks!
