Stupid Millennial Tricks: Wearing Safety Pins, Because Trump. [VIDEOS]

Just when you think butthurt millennials can’t get more ridiculous about the Trump election, they manage to top their hysterics.

Here’s the latest iteration.

A safety pin. Yes, a safety pin. For “safe space.” Get it?

As the ever-entertaining Huffington Post wrote:

By fastening a safety pin to their clothing, people are declaring themselves allies to groups who have been maligned by Trump, to show that they stand in solidarity with anyone who might be afraid.

Let that sink in.

And this:

“You will help if they are attacked.” Bwahahahaha! Remember, these pin-wearing snowflakes are the same ones demanding that their colleges create safe spaces for them to retreat to when their butthurt over the Trump win becomes overwhelming.

They want pins to wear? They should be wearing these pins. And look — they also come in gender-neutral colors for the confused.

Let’s take a trip back in time, shall we?

Remember the early 1990’s, when the AIDS awareness ribbon became the rage among the glitterati and anyone else who virtue-signaled their care?

Rush Limbaugh skewered that silliness, along with the need to display awareness ribbons like a Russian general displays his medals.

I have three words for these overwrought slacktivists: Just. Grow. Up. Learn from an episode of “Daniel Tiger.”

I have a four-year-old grandson. He loves board games, and is learning some hard lessons about losing. He has cried tears when it happens. But his parents are teaching him that not everything goes his way, and his daddy has taught him to respond with “Good game!”

He once loved Daniel Tiger, but has moved on. He now loves Captain America. I think the kid will turn out just fine.

Über-sensitive millennials should take a page from this little guy and move on as well. Learn to lose. Embrace America. And things will be fine, without silly meaningless pins.
