This marketing CEO issues ‘snowflake test’ to weed out job seekers who cry or care about police brutality

Published

on

Kyle Reyes, CEO of Manchester, Connecticut’s Silent Partner Marketing, has an unorthodox method of screening job applicants he likes to call the “snowflake test.”

Who are these so-called “snowflakes”? For Reyes and his fellow Fox News viewers, it’s “a young activist, a champion of character, an eighth place trophy holder.”

Since appearing on “Fox and Friends” last week, thousands of resumes have flooded his inbox. Only two have made the cut.

“I was really taken aback,” new hire Allison Paglughi told host Steve Doocy. “I was like, why does he care when I last cried, why does he care about my stance on police?”

Devon Farquharson, another new hire, defended Reyes’ methods.

“I totally get it,” Farquharson told Doocy. “I mean, with all the stuff you go through on a daily basis, it makes sense that we wouldn’t want people who’d get offended easily.”

“A snowflake is somebody who is going to whine and complain and come to the table with nothing but an entitled attitude and an inability to back their perspective,” Reyes told Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

“Who is a snowflake these days? Is it a political test?” Varney asked Reyes.

Reyes flat-out denied the assertion. But Varney pressed on.

“‘Snowflakes’ are liberals, you know that,” the host insisted.

“I’ve met many conservative snowflakes,” Reyes retorted. “Snowflake is a mentality.”

“I guarantee that somebody’s going to sue you, many people are going to sue you,” Varney told him.

How the world discovered the Nazi death camps

Published

on

Images of what the Allies found when they liberated the first Nazi death camps towards the end of World War II brought the horror of the Holocaust to global attention.

Many of the ghastly pictures were at first held back from the broader public, partly out of concern for those with missing relatives.

The concentration and extermination camps were liberated one by one as the Allied armies advanced on Berlin in the final days of the 1939-1945 war.

The first was Majdanek in eastern Poland, which was freed on July 24, 1944 by the advancing Soviet Red Army.

John McEnroe blasts ‘homophobic’ Margaret Court ahead of Grand Slam honor

Published

on

John McEnroe blasted fellow tennis great Margaret Court's "offensive and homophobic" views on Monday as the Australian Open prepared to mark 50 years since her calendar-year Grand Slam.

The American said Court, 77, was Tennis Australia's "crazy aunt" and that marking the golden anniversary of her 1970 Grand Slam was a "nightmare" for the governing body.

"There's only one thing longer than the list of Margaret Court's list of achievements: it's her list of offensive and homophobic statements," McEnroe said in a no-holds-barred video for Eurosport.

"Margaret Court is actually a ventriloquist, using the Bible as a dummy to say whatever she wants," added the seven-time Grand Slam winner.
