Huckleberry Finn Causes Special Snowflake Syndrome

12/12/2015

Yeah, this should upset the left. Then and now.

The Liberty Zone

Mark Twain’s classic has always been the subject of controversy. It its early days, racists condemned the novel for positively portraying a friendship between a white boy and a black man.

Today, Special Snowflakes™ demand its removal from schools and libraries, because it chafes their fragile labia.

This week, a Montgomery County school removed Huckleberry Finn from its curriculum after a group of students said the book made them uncomfortable.

 After a forum for students and faculty, the administration of Friends’ Central School decided to strike the book from the 11th-grade American literature class, principal Art Hall said in a letter to parents this week.

“We have all come to the conclusion that the community costs of reading this book in 11th grade outweigh the literary benefits,” Hall said in his letter.

A group of students said an American classic made them “feel uncomfortable.”

Let that sink in for…

    At the very least, Huckleberry Finn is a key part of our history, both cultural and literal.

    If you obliterate our history, you obliterate who we are.

    Precisely, my friend. Why do you think “they’re” doing it?

    When my son and my middle daughter were little, I read both “Tom Sawyer” and “Huckleberry Finn” aloud to them, and I did not censor anything out. I had to explain to them that they must not use language like that, but that that was how people talked back when the books were written. I’m pretty sure neither of them was traumatized by the experience, and both grew up to be reasonably normal adults. Amazing.

    The whole idea behind that book WAS to make you think, to make you uncomfortable. These poor snowflakes have no idea what they’re truly in for in the future.

    What will these people do when they hit real life and a temper tantrum just gets them fired?

    Even the Liberal professors who spawned them have realized that there’s a problem. When a “micro aggression” such as referring to “the American melting pot” sends someone into a fearful tizzy, they need a good psychiatrist more than they need a lawyer.

    The concept of the American Melting Pot is central to our vision of ourselves as Americans. It goes with our motto: Out of many, one. The whole Civil Rights Movement was about Americans who wanted their honest portion, their place alongside the rest of us. Point made and case closed. It’s time to move on, not fractionate ourselves again.

    E Pluribus, Unum indeed. Equality, not special treatment for any group. The reverse prejudice bullshit is directly against that very concept as well. You are due what you earn, and you earn by your ability. Your value is dictated by what you do, and how well. Society doesn’t owe you a damn thing due to your parents, or their parents, or theirs before them. It’s all you.

    Bad news to this group: Don’t look now, but that’s the real world creeping up behind you. Get ready to be totally uncomfortable for a looonnnng time. Bwahahaha!
