Remember the Freddie Gray incident (see Freddie Gray’s Autopsy Changes the Narrative. Murder… or Accident? and Justice Prevails: Remaining Charges Against #FreddieGray Officers Dropped)? Remember the riots that happened based on the lies and media propaganda? Well, today is YOUR lucky day!
Because if you were traumatized, the Department of Education has provided $2.3 MILLION DOLLARS in taxpayer money for counseling.
$2,374,000.00, to be exact.
The federal government gave Baltimore $2,374,000, which will go towards counseling and behavioral programs to improve the mental health of students who may have been traumatized by civil unrest. After Freddie Gray‘s death as a result of injuries suffered while in police custody, protests and rioting broke out in the city. Tension increased again after the officers involved were either acquitted at trial or had their charges dropped by prosecutors.
I’m sorry. This is why Millennials have been branded “Generation Snowflake.” Did you ever think you’d hear the phrase “traumatized by civil unrest”? What does that even mean? I think we’re using the word “traumatized” a bit too broadly. But please, let’s hear more of an explanation…
“Violence tears at the fabric of a school community, and the long-term effects can be devastating,” U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. said in a statement. “The Department of Education is committed to addressing the mental health and social support needs of students who are impacted, directly or indirectly, by traumatic events in their communities.”
Don’t get me wrong. If there was money to help the traumatized families of the police officers who were demonized to score political points, then I say God bless.
But if students didn’t want trauma from civil unrest, then those students SHOULDN’T HAVE COMMITTED THE CIVIL UNREST!
Also, how does “trauma from civil unrest” present? What are the symptoms? Because maybe I have trauma from all the trauma of the civil unrest coming from everyone else. I’ll call it “Snowflake Overexposure Syndrome.” It presents with dangerous eye-rolling and running out of craps to give. Maybe you have it too. Think Uncle Sam will throw a few bucks our way? SO MUCH SUFFERING.
But this is government for you. Always looking for new ways to offer teets for babies to suckle.
Need we remind you Traumatic Snowflakes that the Freddie Gray narrative was all wrong? You suffered needlessly. I mean seriously, I’m happy to spell it out for you again…
