The Green Party’s new senior citizens spokesperson has outraged social media users for using the “derogatory” phrase “OK, Boomer”.
It’s hilarious that Boomers are the first to kick Millennials for being triggered snowflakes, and Boomers are righteous to do that because Millennials are triggered snowflakes, but the moment Boomer righteously becomes a term for derision, oh listen to those triggered snowflake Boomers scream in anguish!
As a Gen Xer, I can’t stand Boomers or Millennials.
There are 2 types of boomer. Those who just fall into the age demographic (no one has a problem with them) & then there is ‘the fucking boomer’ – white coiffed hair, dripping in gold, International holidays every season & 4 property rentals. These Boomers took their boomer cradle to grave privilege & fucked the rest of us with a user pays neoliberalism that has locked every younger generation out of home ownership.
If Boomers are angry at how their generational name has been turned into a joke, wait until they realise that by 2023 they will for the first time ever be a smaller voting demographic than Gen X & Millennial’s combined and that those Gen Xers and Millenials will be as unforgiving as a Boomer at an auction when it comes to death tax and inheritance duties to fund affordable housing.
All us Gen Xers and Millennials want is the same state subsidisation of our lives that the Boomers enjoyed before the Boomers pulled the ladder up behind them by voting in neoliberal Governments.
Luckily for the Boomers the Millennials are all too busy canceling each other and policing micro aggressions to be politically effective, but make no mistake, judgement day via death duties and inheritance tax for all that untaxed capital gain is coming.
