The one big advantage that the Left has going for it is that they have a lot of non-Boomer politicians in positions of power now all over the West.
Just look: you have the juicy brown strumpet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in America – and that’s nothing compared to the progress that Millennials have made in other, far gayer countries in Europe and the Anglosphere.
A 25-year-old New Zealand politician has admitted making “some people very mad” by using a viral phrase in parliament.
Chlöe Swarbrick told an older lawmaker “OK boomer” after they interrupted her speech on climate change.
There was little reaction in parliament but she soon began trending online. She has also been accused of ageism.
They sat there THUNDERSTRUCK.
See, the Boomer is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a scoundrel, parasite, swindler, profiteer, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But tell him “OK, Boomer” and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out!”
It’s a shame that we are in a situation where our best memes are being capitalized on by ugly Climate Change death cult roasties, but at least the memes are getting out there.
In internet parlance, “OK boomer” is a derogatory phrase used primarily by the next generations to show their indignation towards older people deemed indifferent to their concerns. It is used widely on platforms like Twitter and TikTok.
“Boomer is a state of mind,” Ms Swarbrick told Stuff.
That got a genuine guffaw out of me.
I’m legit impressed. I’ve never seen a wahmen understand an internet meme this well before. But this bitch gets it.
“I think you can see from the way that that meme has evolved that it is symbolic of the collective frustration that young people in particular feel to placing evidence in fact time after time in the debate and in the argument and being met with dogma,” she said.
She also wondered whether by using the phrase so publicly she had inadvertently killed it off.
Hello, Based Department?
Yeah, we got a live one here.
Ms Swarbrick was commenting on the Zero Carbon bill, which aims to reduce net carbon emissions in New Zealand to zero by 2050, when she used the phrase.
“Mr Speaker, how many world leaders, for how many decades have seen and known what is coming but have decided that it is more politically expedient to keep it behind closed doors. My generation and the generations after me do not have that luxury,” she said.
While this climate change debate is just cult nonsense, I do appreciate her calling out Boomers for being useless parasites and making it acceptable to publicly harass old people.
She’s dabbing on ’em Boomers. They be all like:
But literally no one cares anymore. It’s hip to make fun of Boomers now.
