A very sensitive person. Someone who is easily hurt or offended by the statements or actions of others.

This has nothing to do with politics. Snowflakes can be liberal or conservative. Whether it is a compliment or an insult is a matter of opinion and depends on the context.
Don't criticize Jane for what she did. She's a snowflake and you'll only upset her.

An overly sensitive person that doesn't take criticism well.
Donald J Trump.
Trump is such a snowflake and cannot focus on his job because he is frustrated by the media diminishing his achievements.

An insult, used to mean that a person is too easily insulted or is too sensitive to the opinions. Mainly used by Alt-Right Trumpet blowers, who ironically, don't realize they are the very definition of the insult they love to throw around. Snowflake is used by people who are incapable of using their intellect and their words to make their point in an intelligent manner.
Look at that Alt-Right snowflakes pitching a fit over people they think do not sufficiently engage in flag worship.

“A snowflake was a person who was opposed to the abolition of slavery. They were called snowflakes because it said they valued white people over black people.”

Snowflakes who stand by and watch civil right's violations are as guilty as the offender.
