You Want The Original Snowflake Test? Here It Is

Wow.  Apparently this Snowflake Test was quite the talk of America.

I’m not going to lie … it’s been an exhausting – yet incredible – media tour.  I’ve been blessed to be on Fox and Friends four times, The Kennedy Show, Varney and Co., Risk and Reward, and more than 100 radio programs.

Why so much excitement over it?

I like to think it’s because patriotic Americans are sick and tired of the sniveling, whining, entitled brats who believe that everything should be handed to them on a silver platter.

And of course that line right there is going to trigger many of them, sending them crawling out of their safe spaces with lines like “we are snowflakes but snowflakes make blizzards!” and “you’re such a sexist, racist, homophobic bigot that I’m going to burn down your business.” 

Unfortunately for you tender souls, I’ve now had hundreds of companies reach out to me with overwhelming support and encouragement … letting me know that they too will be implementing similar tests to take out the trash before it starts stinking up their business.

Looks like summer is coming, snowflakes.

Instead of accepting a dime for the test … I’m going to go ahead and share it now with all of America. 

I hope you’ll help share this test with other patriotic Americans.  And of course make sure to keep following me here on Facebook – because like the coming summer … I’m just warming up.
