Every time I want to take the foot off the gas and show the Boomers mercy, I am reminded of who I am dealing with. The absolute depravity and callousness of this accursed generation means that no mercy but the one found at the soft end of a MyPillow ™ is good enough for them.
This “OK, Boomer” meme has absolutely rattled their cages. They don’t know how to respond and are lashing out in fear at the young’ins.
In a recent interview about her organization’s media presence, a senior executive of AARP—the American Association of Retired Persons—took a jab at the viral “OK, boomer” meme by making fun of the relative destitution of younger Americans.
The executive, Myrna Blyth, made the comment during an interview with Axios. Blyth serves as the senior vice president and editorial director of AARP Media. AARP is a non-profit organization, 38 million members strong, whose mission is to “empower people to choose how they live as they age,” according to its website. To qualify for membership, applicants must have already passed their 50th birthdays.
“OK, millennials,” Blyth reportedly said in the interview. “But we’re the people that actually have the money.”
This is like responding to the accusation of being gay by saying, “yeah, I may be gay.”
Saying anything with enough confidence can temporarily silence your critics, but once they’ve had a moment to recover from the chutzpah, they just keep pressing the point: “yeah, that’s what I’m accusing you of… and now you’ve admitted it.”
Almost as bizarre as Boomer humor – which reduces to just complaining about wives and technology.
Zoomer shitlords and Millennial gaylords have been accusing the Boomers of stealing all the wealth and hoarding it – which, apparently, they no longer have the good sense to even hide.
Blyth’s retort was a reversal of “OK, boomer,” a meme that originated on the video app TikTok before migrating to the “real world.”
Not true. Making fun of Boomers was a favorite pastime of the internet before TikTok.
TikTok is for normies anyways.
The phrase quickly caught on as a dismissive response to elders who chide millennials or members of Gen Z or express views typically unpopular among those groups, such as the denial of climate change or support for President Donald Trump.
“Teenagers use it to reply to cringey YouTube videos, Donald Trump tweets, and basically any person over 30 who says something condescending about young people—and the issues that matter to them,” the New York Times reported.
Some members of Blyth’s cohort have taken extreme offense to “OK, boomer,” with one radio host going so far as to claim that it was as bad as a certain racial slur historically applied to African Americans.
Lol. Boomers consider themselves niggers.
But have you wondered why this meme is so effective?
- Boomers have a hard time accepting that they’re as old and out of touch as they once thought their own parents were.
- It implies that they are not special snowflakes and actually share the same opinions as their peers.
- “OK, Boomer” is usually spammed at them, so they really feel the hyenas starting to circle around them and their stolen loot.
- When you drop it, you’re basically saying: “Discussion is over. We’ve heard it all before, old timer. Pack it up.”
There needs to be a wealth redistribution and it needs to happen quick. Boomers must be stripped of all their ill-gotten gains and forced onto ice sheets, which will then be pushed out into the open ocean.
This is total war we’re talking about here, fellow kids.
No half-measures will do!
