Democratic Socialists Conference: A Tale of Snowflakes
Over the weekend, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) held a conference in Georgia. In a video of the convention live-streamed, there were some intense snowflake moments as members complained about gender pronouns, “whispering sensory overload,” and “triggering” statements, from their “comrades.” Yeah, they used “comrades.” (Fox report)
OMG. Socialists must be so proud. The DSA is the largest Socialist organization in the US. Bernie, AOC, Tlaib, and Omar are members… excuse me, “comrades.”
One person claimed to be on “sensory overload” from the “guys” whispering in the back of the room.
“I just want to say, can we please keep the chatter to the minimum? I’m one of the people who’s very, very prone to sensory overload… There’s a lot of whispering and chattering going on. It’s making it very difficult for me to focus. Please, I know we’re all fresh and ready to go, but can we please just keep the chatter to a minimum? It’s affecting my ability to focus.” James Jackson
Here’s one of the folks that forgot it’s America:
Then there was the person who demanded in his ‘point of personal privilege’ that people not use “gendered pronouns” to address the audience. Apparently the word “guys” caused him some consternation.
Some great life coping skills in that group, don’t you think?
The Young Americans Against Socialism tweeted out some of the more humorous moments from the Democratic Socialists conference. Be sure to listen to the excerpts. They’ll give you confidence that even though we may disagree with Trump on some things, he’s definitely not one of these folks.

The responses were impressive.
“Wow these people can be defeated with a boom box cranked all the way up and by using the words he and she. These are the nut jobs that put AOC in office. GO TRUMP 2020!!!”
“Wtf? I would like to find the parents of these ppl. Wth did they do to them to make them so……whimpy? These ppl have 0 life coping skills. “
“Meanwhile at the Democratic Socialists of America Mental Disorders Conference…”
“Good lord these people are cuckoo.”
“This shit can’t be real? Can it?”
“WOW! That is a gathering of mentally ill people. Half of those people get triggered and half of them are close to pulling a trigger. That is a truly terrifying cadre of comrades. “
We rest our case.
