You'd really have to admire the stupidity and sheer lack of awareness of some people calling Arnold Schwarzenegger a snowflake if it wasn't so toxic - but here again, we see Schwarzenegger showing us all how it's done when it comes to handling online trolls.
The former Governor of California posted a short video in which he was discussing Donald Trump's ridiculous policy of trying to restart the coal industry to suit his political agenda, and brought up a program that helps to retrain coalminers and put them to work in new industries.
All pretty standard stuff, especially as Schwarzenegger is known for his work on environmental issues and makes regular videos like these trying to convince people about the benefits of environmentalism and clean energy.
So, seeing as how it's Facebook and the comments section are generally an open sewer, you've got one clown like this trying to call Arnold Schwarzenegger "a snowflake." For those who don't know, the term is often used to describe someone who's either overly sensitive or has progressive political views. Yeah. Here's the comment.
Schwarzenegger's response, for a guy with English as a second language, is articulate, thoughtful and manages to make his point without resorting to the kind of terms chumps such as these use. "I never mind picking up new titles. Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia, Terminator, Governor… If you want to call me Snowflake, that’s fine - it would have been a fantastic Mr. Freeze line," Schwarzenegger begins.
"But let me give you some advice. If you’re going to call someone a snowflake because they believe in a different policy than you, you might want to look in the mirror. When you see an idea you disagree with, you can get angry, or you can learn," he continues.
"I’d recommend you research and learn and grow. You can still disagree - that’s the best part about being American! But at least you can disagree with evidence and analysis. We can all be better if we don’t simply react. Pause, reflect, learn, and then decide if you still want to call someone a Snowflake."
Even if someone else wrote it and posted it in his name, it's still a insightful and educated response and considering the calibre of crap that comes from the sitting US President, it's in a league of its own.
