Paul Sizer Creates A Hero For Our Age

I will happily champion this character since this has become the nickname that evil Trumpites give us progressives who fight this fascism with our snark and facts. Because we don't like to see people suffer by poor choices made by clueless oligarchs we are the weak ones. I choose to see my compassion as a strength. Brother Sizer gets this. He continues to be one of my favorite artists around.

One of the underlying elements of "punk" is taking a seeming liability and turning it into an asset. With all the throwing around of the "snowflake" label towards liberals lately, I decided to do a "punk Remake" thing and turn lemons into lemonade.

 So here's "The Snowflake", a super-hero for today's vibe. His motto is "My strength doesn't come from power, it comes from numbers." One snowflake itself doesn't do much; enough of them together can close down a highway or bury a city. Never underestimate the power of lots of people working together for a common cause. : )

Right on! Reclaiming your enemy's terms of derision and turning them into terms of pride is a powerful and successful strategy!

It's so brilliant and simple that even the Hillbilly can understand it.
