That long-winded rant about Millennials definitely belongs on Facebook. It was destined.

That "rant" hit the nail on the head regarding the millenial generation.

I guess the Truth hurts. You don't seem to be able to argue against it, so you just blindly attack it. So noted.

Reading that OP article reminded me of a post I wrote right in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech massacre. This was written in reply to a post of course blaming gun owners. I didn't save any part of what I was rebutting so this begins with the rejection of their premise.

Rereading this again, it still speaks to the horrors of leftism; I see the effects of what I decry with the "woke" mindset which seamlessly morphs into cancel culture and the attacks on free speech and AntiFa and other various "Resistance" movements that crush liberty and even embrace violence. It's all just another snake head on the Hydra of leftism.

Enjoy, criticism welcomed.
No, the reason is that you liberal, feel-good weenies have wussified our children and lied to them into thinking their "feelings" are the most important directive in their lives.

You have polluted children's brains with the concept that it is unhealthy to hold oneself to a moral code and that self-esteem is a proxy for self respect.

You have turned our children into frightened, indecisive conformists who think all they need to do to be accepted and succeed is toe the majority's line. The poor bastards who are different are driven to insanity from the ridicule of their peers and abandonment by those in authority who do nothing to stop the bulling and torture (usually inflicted by a group of edified "perfect" students).

You have taught them logical fallacies that confuse them; the death penalty and armed self-defense are wrong because every human life is of incalculable value and it is not for us to decide who lives or dies, . . . well, unless you find yourself with an inconvenient pregnancy; then it's OK to suck that not-a-baby-clump-of-cells out of a woman's body.

Do you really think children don't recognize the hypocrisy and self-serving, moldable morality? Do you really believe that such "liberal values" if attempted to be applied, don't leave children confused and without self-esteem?

School shootings are caused by that torment of the mind in children pushed to the edge by liberal indoctrination that tells them that how they feel about themselves is of the highest priority. It matters little if this high self-esteem is rooted in reality, just as long as it is repeatedly reinforced (even if drugs are necessary).

This indoctrinated self esteem is like lounging in a Jacuzzi. The warm water and bubbles feel great, and the children delude themselves into thinking that it will never end. Soon though they will be forced to climb out (usually corresponding with puberty and all that self-doubt) and go outside in the cold, real world. The bitter wind is others’ negative views, surprisingly, not everyone thinks you are a beautiful snowflake.

When that happens, egotism is threatened; teens react in one of three ways:

They put on the down parka of a healthy, true self-image, based on their accomplishments, character and ethics and an understanding that life is not always kind.

Or they simply lower their self-esteem and withdraw to a corner to cower and shiver and descend into self destructive disorders, depression, cutting, anorexia, even contemplating suicide.

Or worse of all, some resort to the headline making reaction. They maintain their high self-esteem and manifest violent negative emotions toward the source of the ego threat. In their mind, (and according to everything they have been told) they deserve to feel warm and cozy forever and when they don’t, they lash out at those making them cold and uncomfortable . . . Their pain shall be visited upon those who have wronged them; everyone must pay for the slights against them.

There is an even worse trait cultivated in our kids by the leftist social agenda machine that adds fuel to the urge to lash out . . . That is covetousness.

Our children have been taught to covet the wealth of the motivated achiever, the gifts of the more talented, the power of the influential, the wisdom of the wise, the devotion of the religious and the courage of the brave but they are taught to reject, if not detest the moral fiber and work needed to achieve those things -- because they feel entitled to them.

They know, deep down, that no one will ever actually give them such things but that does not stop this covetousness begetting resentment and those resentments begetting contempt. It is that contempt which helps to drive those who are victimized to lash out at perceived oppressors or anyone who appears to enjoy privilege not afforded them.

Until you sick sons of bitches stop feeding kids this gruel of self-esteem and cultivating feelings of deserving and entitlement and envy, these eruptions of selfish expression will not cease.

The worst of it all, that always happens after these tragedies, is coveting the sympathy of the victimized, claiming their pain for "all of us" and then dancing in their blood blaming gun-owners who by and large hold dear those traits and characteristics which you consider faults; a moral code and applying it, judging yourself against it and only then awarding yourself self-respect. Such a thing is the cure for this phenomenon.
