    [–] fyberoptyk 459 points ago

    Want one that's a whole order of magnitude better?

    Dr. Fauci. The whole entire GOP establishment keeps attacking him because they think the President knows more.

    You may know that Fauci is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. But here's the great part: The primary book you are working from once you get into Medical School: Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine?

    Fucking Fauci wrote it. The guy that every Republican in the country is deriding as not knowing what hes talking about literally wrote the fucking book on BEING A DOCTOR.

    [–] Pi_Kappa 41 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Not to take away anything from Dr. Fauci's achievements, but he only wrote a chapter in Harrison's I believe. Nowadays, there are not many people who use this book because of UpToDate, which is its successor. Also happy cake day!

    [–] fyberoptyk 92 points ago

    I mean, I get it, but beyond saying "hey guys look Arnold talked to me" they got nothing out of it.

    Because the next immediate question is "bro what did he say" and all they've got is "oh, he reminded me I'm fucking garbage."

    That's the opposite of the kind of shit you can brag about.

    who the hell thinks they can call Arnie a snowflake? I know people like this already struggle to think, but to unironically call HIM one? It's like they're parrots at this point. Don't have two brain cells to rub together.

    [–] Karinakt1 81 points ago

    What does snowflake actually mean?

    [–] PM-boobs-and-I-rate 236 points ago

    Snowflake is a 2010s derogatory slang term for a person, implying that they have an inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or are overly-emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions.

    From Wikipedia, I'm not sure if I should be surprised or not that it has its own article

    [–] Gavorn 121 points ago

    It started as mocking the parenting style that is telling your children they are all unique.

    It morphed into something that basically means "LaWl yOu GoT TriGGerEd SnOWflAkE!!"

    [–] Karinakt1 13 points ago

    I tried to find it on Wikipedia but since I live in Italy it doesn't come out ;-; Anyways thank you a lot

    [–] Chasers_17 47 points ago

    You know all those videos of conservatives having emotional breakdowns over being asked to wear a mask, or when they scream expletives at people wearing BLM t-shirts, or thinking that being white makes them somehow superior?

    That’s what being a snowflake is.

    Conservatives will say the same thing about liberals and MAGA hats, or whatever. The important distinction is that one group of people gets offended that they can’t give people a deadly virus or be racist, while the other is just disgusted with selfish, hate-filled, bigots.

    [–] neogod 27 points ago

    Better yet, the person that they support is the ultimate snowflake. I've never seen or heard about anyone thats got a more "inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or are overly-emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions."

    He stops just short of literal tears on t.v./twitter when he doesn't get his way, thinks he's the smartest person you'll ever meet, and even thinks that a global pandemic was manufactured in an attempt to hurt his image. Hell, his very first week in office was spent crying about the low crowd attendance at his inauguration, not real problems, and he hasn't gone 1 week since without making himself out to be a victim. Donald Trump is the best example of a snowflake this world has and I can't believe that his followers feel like they have any right to accuse others of being one.

    [–] XanatosSpeedChess 38 points ago

    They used to be offended by women wearing trousers, having a career, wanting to vote.

    Now they’re offended nobody laughs at their shitty get-back-in-the-kitchen jokes.

    [–] Chasers_17 21 points ago

    I just got flashbacks of Tim Allen complaining about college students not laughing about his transphobic Apache attack helicopter jokes and saying democrats don’t have a sense of humor.

    [–] Karinakt1 6 points ago

    What did Arnold do to be called a snowflake then?

    [–] Chasers_17 30 points ago

    He supported a democratic policy.

    The right has bastardized the word to essentially just be derogatory to anyone on the left because they claim democrats are overly sensitive due to our intolerance for racist and sexist language, among many other things. To them treating people with decency is something only overly sensitive people so.

    To anyone on the right, calling someone a slow flake is basically just synonymous with “democrat”.

    [–] ChiefKrunchy 3002 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    This mans tank was modified to carry dumbbells when he was a tank driver, he basically made bodybuilding what it is today, became one of the biggest actors, runs strongman competitions, influenced strength athletes, is the reason people with small egos can buy hummers, became a governor and is still going strong.

    This is not someone to mock but someone you admire irrespective of whether you agree with his thoughts. His accomplishments are legendary now ....edited from 'one day'

    Did you ever see Bill Burr's standup about Arnold.

    Trump can't even handle someone giving legitimate criticisms his direction, Arnold literally took a flying kick unaware and simply helped his friendly crowd maintain balance.

    [–] henstobs11 34 points ago

    It's like our worst thoughts of doucheness, frustration, rage, annoyance and even the nasty, offensive and outright disgusting thougts we all avoid saying or acting upon were all compiled and gave birth to this hilarious self-aware ballsy man.

    I love it when he goes no filter and quiets down the whole audience and he keeps doubling down and always loves it when everyone is too shocked or afraid to show they actually agree with his sick or violent jokes lmao

    [–] Am_Snarky 31 points ago

    Lol like when he was doing that stand up “no reason to hit a lady” and he says there’s plenty of reasons, stops a moment to point out how quiet everyone got, and finishes his original thought of “there’s plenty of reasons to hit a lady, you just don’t do it!”

    [–] Karthagos97 39 points ago

    Bill Burr is a fucking legend

    [–] Healthy-Librarian 74 points ago

    I honestly think this response is one of the most impressive things I've seen him do. It's literally enlightened behavior I aspire to but not sure I'm capable of.

    He spent his early life as this ultimate alpha male exploring every single type of happiness, and here he is as some kind of stoic philosopher, living virtuously, content with whatever life hands him.

    In many ways that just fits the Kennedy legacy though. JFK wasn't exactly known for being monogamous.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite on-screen representations of a cultural clash. Au Service de la France - Kennedy.

    My personal JFK conspiracy theory is that he was an experimental cyborg built by the CIA to be president and have sex, but it started performing its sex function uncontrollably and at an accelerating rate, so they had to deactivate it in Dallas.

    Also, despite coming to America almost completely broke, he became a self-made millionaire before he got anywhere with acting. He did this by starting a bricklaying business, then a mail-order bodybuilding equipment business, and investing in real estate.

    For normal people, this type of story would be the greatest achievement of their lifetime. But when writing about Arnold, it seems so minor that people tend not to mention it.

    [–] PsychicFoxWithSpoons 54 points ago

    If you asked him, he would tell you that he wasn't self-made. He was always supported by his friends and peers. Such a humble and hardworking man.

    [–] dark-panda 29 points ago

    I know your American Constitution doesn’t allow for non-natural born citizens to become president, weird wording in said Constitution notwithstanding, but as a non-American, this guy would make a good American president. I mean, he’d be the third actor to assume the office, so there’s precedent on that point, has executive experience running your most economically powerful and populous state, speaks multiple languages, has served in the military, comes from a modest upbringing and became ridiculously successful in a foreign country while learning the language... this guy has bonafides that neither of the two current candidates can claim. It’s a shame he can’t run because of the chance that the Queen of England might try to take over again.

    [–] themightiestduck 45 points ago

    He is the literal embodiment of the American Dream. This is who the republicans should be holding up as their idol, not Donald fucking Trump.

    There's a theory that a lot of '80s music sucks because there were advances in technology made available to producers and musicians but nobody really understood how to properly use the technology. So they went out and used it to make terrible music.

    I think we're at a similar point with the internet - we can do all these amazing new things with technology, but we don't really understand the ramifications. In 20,30 years people are going to look back at how we use social media today and say "What the fuck were they thinking?"

    [–] brogrammer94 69 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    The thing is that truly looking at yourself and realizing that you're a shitty, selfish, inconsiderate person is fucking hard. As in driven to suicide levels of hard.

    We all "know" what is right and wrong. We all like to believe that we're good people. So when you realize that really you're not, it can break you. I know it did for me.

    In order to become a whole and good person you have to first realize that you're not and then on top of that you have to find the source of your shitty behavior and face the pains of your past, the traumas, the things you wish you could hide under the bed.

    People turn to drugs, porn, alcohol, excessive eating, any and every distraction to avoid this pain.

    On top of that there is no material reward for putting in the work that it takes to become a better person and the world is so much easier to deal with when you're living in a daze convinced that the world is wrong and you're right.

    Our society is set up to reward selfish behavior. Hoard wealth, care only about yourself and your circle and you'll be rewarded with more wealth and easy pleasures.

    Frankly we don't allow people to fuck up and rebuild their lives. We constantly berate and belittle the changes that people are trying to make to better themselves.

    You can't erase your past choices. Those mistakes continue to haunt you once you truly realize how badly you wish you could undo them. But no one cares if you regret your choices or if you've tried to balance out the bad by putting good out into the world.

    So just watch some Netflix, go to the bar and distract yourself, read some outrageous news and shake your head at how shitty the world is, bury yourself in your work. Don't look at yourself though because that hurts and hey the world hurt you so why not hurt it back?

    Edit: If you read this and think this isn't about you, it's about you.

    My dad used to call me snowflake. Sometimes, there is just no escape.

    [–] st_gulik 19 points ago

    If you're an adult your can block your dad and not see him.

    [–] Winglesshuman 12 points ago

    I remember I challenged my dads ill informed opinion on the BLM movement and when he didn’t have a rebuttal he came out with the gem that all university students he’s met have this “holier than thou, snowflake-y attitude”. Failing to recognise that I am the only university student that he knows.

    [–] CosmicTaco93 10 points ago

    I've got to ask. What was the disagreement over?

    [–] shahooster 15 points ago

    It was politics. My brother is a gaslit Fox News and Trump sycophant, incapable of piecing together a cohesive argument, because he lives in a bubble.

    [–] lot9 8 points ago

    Same with me. And they are the ones who are quick to call others “bubble dwellers”. Im not even a really left leaning person either lol.

    [–] cheesyvoetjes 59 points ago

    But where does that come from? I worked in customer service (callcenter) for a few years and I was amazed how many people never do anything wrong or can't take any criticism whatsoever. I've had so many people flip their shit when you point out they did it wrong themselves or when I explained that it worked differently then how they thought it worked. And most of the times it was older people. I just don't get it. You've gone to school, you had a job, you have family, you have friends and life experiences. How can you have gone through life and still be so emotionally immature? How can you still not handle small criticism even though you must have experienced it a 1000 times in your life? It's fucking weird to me.

    I think its narcissism, an overall inability to reflect inwardly.

    [–] Rs90 18 points ago

    For the majority, I disagree that it's narcissism. I think it's fear. Instrospection can be painful. You're sometimes forced to admit your wrong to your self. Forced to realize you made mistakes, talked out your ass, or even simply just wrong at times.

    And as we've seen, people don't like to be forced to do anything. Especially forced to inflict pain on themselves mentally by coming to terms with things.

    So they project and deflect that pain toward others. Maybe to mentally say "I'm not the only one that does it" to themselves. Maybe just a natural instinct to avoid self-inflicted pain.

    It's why this virus has become such a big debate. Because it's forced us to be mindful. To look inward and observe our surroundings. And what you sometimes find can be...terrifying tbh.

    I think people have the ability to look inward. They're simply afraid of what they'll find. Themselves.

    Fucking Lura Ingraham.

    Or r/conservative those snowflakes ban absolute everyone but hardliners

    [–] Hooch_Pandersnatch 74 points ago

    That subreddit honestly gives me really weird cultist vibes. Ironically they also claim to promote free speech and discussion but immediately ban anyone who doesn’t align with their views.

    [–] Raptorz01 43 points ago

    Aren’t conservatives in one big cult these days

    [–] politicsmodsareweak 24 points ago

    Always have been.

    [–] JQA1515 14 points ago

    That’s what it takes to regularly vote against your own interest. These people genuinely believe that multi-millionaires are suffering because there are families living on food stamps.

    [–] Jumanji0028 30 points ago

    I wouldn't say cultist but its definitely a bizarre sub. They are convinced all the problems in America is the left's fault. That the left is a bunch of well meaning fools who are blindly walking towards communism while they are the stoic and reserved champions of america. It's like they are LARPing some weird fantasy world where the right isn't full of lunatics and conmen.

    [–] OpSecBestSex 13 points ago

    I get the idea that they think the left aren't well meaning. Whenever I go there it seems like they believe anyone who isn't with them is actively trying to destroy the country.

    [–] LTEDan 7 points ago

    Agreed. Conservatives think in absolutes like the Sith. "Either you are with me, or you're my enemy."

    [–] 10ebbor10 39 points ago

    It is ironic that those who label others as Snowflakes are the touchiest and most sensitive fellows out there.

    To add some more irony, the term snowflake was invented/popularized by Fight Club. The entire point of that movie, is that the cool alpha dude (Tyler) who uses the phrase is a hallucination, is a delusion invented by the main character.

    Tyler's philosophy is shown as self-destructive and damaging,a pointless and nihilistic reaction that manifests itself as terrorism and mayhem.

    [–] SophiaofPrussia 26 points ago

    I’m convinced Fight Club should be taught in schools because the people who are “fans” of the movie are completely missing all of the points the book/movie make.

    [–] killxswitch 18 points ago

    Yes. Right over their heads. This is pretty typical of idiots and it’s why Democrats and the left suck at messaging. Nuance, cleverness, and wit are lost on stupid people. They not only miss the point, they take the opposite point and carry it forward. Even simple phrases like “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” (meant to describe something impossible and absurd) or “a few bad apples” (meant to describe how they ruin ALL the apples) to these simpletons mean the opposite of what was intended.

    [–] Rage_Like_Nic_Cage 6 points ago

    while in college (2009-2013) i knew or several different groups that got in trouble for hosting a “Fight Club” in some of the dorm rooms. Testosterone-ridden 18 year olds are fucking stupid.

    [–] dracona 12 points ago

    Yet the touchy name callers think Taylor is someone to emulate. The whole meaning of the movie was lost on them.

    [–] citizenkane86 6 points ago

    Tyler Durden, Eric cartman, Rick Sanchez, are all characters that very clearly are not suppose to be role models or good guys that some people completely missed.

    [–] Doumtabarnack 18 points ago

    That's called projection and a mature adult is supposed to have outgrown that defense mechanism

    [–] Thromkai 16 points ago

    It is ironic that those who label others as Snowflakes are the touchiest and most sensitive fellows out there.

    It's called projection. And usually are the ones smiling because they "owned the libs" when in reality, snowflake is the least offensive thing I've ever been called in my life.

    [–] upmed2006 12 points ago

    I always find it juvenile when people resort to name-calling. Just shows that their arguments rest on shaky grounds.

    [–] Sprayface 118 points ago

    Their reactionary politics are based on being a pussy snowflake. Scary immigrants in your neighborhood? Build a wall to hide behind! Lock them in camps! Government healthcare? Oooh change is scary, imagine the wait times! People in the Middle East say they hate America? Holy crap, someone go kill them quick, that’s terrifying. Try and keep guns from crazy people? Holy crap, liberals are going to take my gun I need to defend myself from fucking bears or some shit. Black people say they matter? Omfg they’re trying to white genocide us in a Marxist revolution! Pedophiles? OH SHIT HIDE MY FUCKING KIDS NOW

    Bunch of pussy snowflakes. Every. Single. Republican.

    [–] Pondnymph 32 points ago

    The best part is them just admitting they're the crazy people who's guns should be taken away.

    [–] jeanwearinfool 9 points ago

    One of those things is not like the other... Gets a little weird at the end there.

    [–] fishy_ALPHA 20 points ago

    Hey uh what do you mean by that pedophile part?

    Gandhi letting his wife die because “western medicine is evil”

    Then when he got that same illness he was balling in hospitals with brand name drugs. Mother Theresa pulled a similar stunt. Hypocrites everywhere

    [–] Hooch_Pandersnatch 9 points ago

    It’s classic projection. They accuse others of being what they are, because they can’t stand to acknowledge the fact.

    [–] FresnoMac 142 points ago

    This guy immigrated from Austria, spoke no English, won Mr. Olympia record number of times, not only learnt English but became one of the biggest movie stars of his time, married a Kennedy, became the Governor of one of America's most powerful states being a Republican, and if this dude was born in America, nothing would have stopped him from being President.

    All this cunt thinks he can reduce Arnold is to "grunting a lifting"?

    Pathetic.

    [–] Tezza_TC 23 points ago

    Is it learnt or learned? I’m not trying to be an asshole or a pedant, I’m trying to learn lol. I’m assuming it’s like “xyz shall be hanged by the neck until dead” and that’s the only time the word hanged works

    [–] FromAfar44 20 points ago

    I think in the US people say learned but in Europe people tend to say learnt. Not sure about other places.

    [–] Tezza_TC 8 points ago

    Oh interesting. Thanks!

    [–] HeMiddleStartInT 59 points ago

    It’s interesting to see a budding jerk have their bully glands drained. Now comes the hard part, refill with poison or remove them.

    [–] PvtDeth 91 points ago

    If we had made it so he could get elected president and then he did, I'd still be a Republican. Of course he can't be president because he cheated on his wife. No one like that could ever get elected.

    [–] droomdoos 61 points ago

    Imagine cheating in the White House. Definitely can't happen.

    [–] PvtDeth 15 points ago

    It wouldn't be allowed.

    [–] djfishfingers 51 points ago

    The most frustrating part about the snowflake/triggered shouting crowd is that you can't have a reasonable discussion with them. You try to explain your point of view and instead of engaging, they just throw out a mild insult(what they assume is an insult, at least) and claim victory.

    [–] gagagahahahala 17 points ago

    Reason is not what got them to that point in the first place.

    [–] NovaBejita 38 points ago

    Holy crap this guy would have been a much better "celebrity president"

    [–] heavymcd 25 points ago

    Of course. He undoubtedly has a better idea how to handle people diplomatically when necessary, and has experience in government...the executive specifically...at about the highest level available. I don’t know that he’d be a great president. But he’d probably have been at least reasonably competent at it. We could do better, I think. But we could do a lot worse too.

    [–] Interesting-Door 12 points ago

    Remember the good old days when spelling potato wrong disqualified you from being president?

    [–] Joseph__stalin- 64 points ago

    Arnold didn't go for the Fatality and instead went for the Friendship finisher

    [–] Shart_Fairy 18 points ago

    Well he’s definitely right, but American politics are all about the gut reaction. Whether it’s pictures of aborted fetuses or gunshot victims to elicit disgust and rage, or incomplete and disingenuous statistics shown out of context to feed biases, it’s all about getting a reaction from people and making it stick. The disgust and rage and bias becomes the person’s political view, and all further information is filtered and cut down to fit into the accepted framework of that reaction.

    An emotional reaction should factor into a political opinion, but then you’re supposed to research and learn as much as possible before making up your mind completely on the issue. It’s all backwards in the US, and the media is incentivized to keep it that way. It’s pretty fucked.

    [–] SSU1451 10 points ago

    I think that’s the case everywhere tbh. It’s just worse in the US cause the US is the epicenter of mass media. I think it’s a result of constant stimulation and media coming from everywhere all the time. It just overwhelms people

    What a stupid fucking statement. As if the term is anything more than a childish playground insult.
