Baby boomers were so named because they are intellectually stunted, immature and cry easily like little babies. No matter what your politics or religion are, always remember that boomers are still your main enemy. Boomers voted in Trump and almost voted in HRC as a second choice.
My Reasons for the Causes of Boomer Stupidity:
Too much nuclear testing world-wide led to early exposure to fallout.
It was a fad for mothers to feed their kids on baby formula (they were told it was healthier than real milk.)
DDT and various pesticides, lead and pollution were in the environment and affecting their brains because Nixon hadn’t created the EPA.
Martin Luther King Jr. “Don’t be racist” rhetoric, because either:
- It turned into “I’m holier than thou. And I didn’t lynch anyone in the 60’s, so I can’t be a racist. I know racism.”
- It turned into “All words that can be construed as racist should not be uttered under any circumstance.”
Cold War/Ayn Rand propaganda made them incredibly selfish individuals who care only about buying themselves plastic products with plastic credit cards.
60’s made two kinds of idealistic Boomers: The SJWs/Feminists, and the moral right who oppose them. Congress has ground to a halt in the past few years because these idealists absolutely refuse to compromise.
Spoiled by their parents.
Came to age listening to the pre-boomer Beatles, but then gave the world Disco and produced songs without any message.
Christianity and creationism makes them oppose science and change.
Their figures of authority taught them to be mechanically obsessed with social rules and etiquette, aka “civility.”
Bernie was popular with the younger generations mainly because we unconsciously recognized he was pre-Boomer. You know who was a perfect Boomer child? Trump. The most narcissistic and sociopathic generation elected someone to represent them in their last dying gasp they are determined to bring about a nuclear holocaust so that no generation can ever have as much as they did. They elected Regan too, and Bush with their superior numbers and stupidity, they make Muslims look harmless. Boomers have fucked us over more than Communists or Muslims ever have when put together.
We have many good reasons not to like Boomers. For one, Boomers inherited 35% debt to GDP and somehow blew it up to105% debt to GDP. They are the worst generation that has ever ran the establishment and literally any other generation would have ran the country better. All we can do is hope that the saga leads to a great conclusion, and I hope there are still enough of the remaining Silent Generation to spank their kids’ asses so we don’t have to commit Boomercide.
