I'm fine with "OK Boomer." I split my time between the USA and Thailand, have 'condos in more than one US state, dont have to work  and have a new Porsche. So I  would smile at the one who says that t

I don't really care and im not a boomer.    I do think it speaks to the glaring hypocrisy of liberalism though. Tolerance, Inclusiveness, etc. except when you don't agree with them, then its

I understand the term "baby boomer", but I have never heard anyone quote  "OK boomer"...
Sounds a bit Aussy to me though...😋

 

I would be interested to know where the OP has been presented with the phrase to get upset about it...🤔

Its not anecdotal - the term was literally coined by and used by and made into a 'thing' by millennial liberal crybabies. The whole point of the thread is the phrase "OK Boomer".

 

 

Now here is where you change the statement and intent of my post into something you just made up that has nothing to do with what I said. 

 

Liberal millennials[sic] coined and use the phrase "OK Boomer" yet are the overbearingly loud proponents of Tolerance™ Inclusion™ and Diversity™ unless it's of course anyone who's older, makes more money, or disagrees with them. Then its name calling and disrespect. Be the same as saying "Ok Jew" or "Ok Asian". 

 

The hypocrisy is the point, bud. I can make the statement "OK Boomer" (Which I would never do because its dumb) and not be a hypocrite because I'm an American right-wingnut who is free to dislike people/opinions/attitudes as I see fit. 

 

The question of who coined the phrase is irrelevant.

 

You argued earlier that ageism, specifically ageist attitudes toward boomers, was the exclusive province of liberals. In other words, you made a blanket statement which was not confined to the discussion of the phrase ("OK boomer") in question.

 

Your "supporting evidence" for this claim is, by necessity, purely anecdotal...unless you've interviewed every man, woman and child in America who holds negative attitudes toward baby boomers and have ascertained his or her political affiliations...?

Who cares? Whether there's truth to the sentiment about the boomer generation "ruining the world" or not I just want this dumb meme to end. It's not clever or funny, it's just annoying seeing it everywhere. I'm not a defensive boomer either, I'm in my 20s.

 

How I imagine people must feel when they comment "OK boomer" online:

I literally never, not once, ever said that. You're making stuff up.

 

My posts are in direct reference to the thread title and phrase mentioned in it, and the people who coined it, and use it. 

 

YOU have removed the context of my posts in that little noggin of yours in a boring attempt to argue with me.

Oh, there's ample hypocrisy on the right as well, Bubba.

 

For example:

 

Conservatives: "The baby boom generation is to blame for everything that's wrong with America today."

 

Also conservatives: "How dare you disrespect our Vietnam vets?"

My only complaint about the phrase is that it's a bit wet, a bit soft.......not nearly as savage, insensitive and cruel as the sort of people who are my age (and act/speak in the way that prompts its use) deserve.

 

I wouldn't feel the slightest bit "hurt" by it, even if anyone did use it against me.

 

"**** off and die grandad, you're in the way you useless old ****"

 

That's more like it.

 

Good enough for me, in "my day".

They face a lot more difficulty achieving what my generation could obtain rather easily. 

Wasn't so easy for me .   How was it easy for you ?

If you still can't see where and how you crapped the bed, then I don't know how to better explain without breaking out the crayons and hand puppets.

 

I have no idea how your brain works. One minute your shifting the goalposts to what conservatives do, next minute your flailing the other way like your having a panic attack because someone had the audacity point out liberal hypocrisy in a statement made by liberals. 

 

And now the nexus of your last post is that some liberals don't say it, therefore it negates the ones that do? 

 

You are really very sensitive about this whole thing aren't you.

Correct..and then some. They dont know how lucky they are. They have never had it so good.

Don't worry.   They will face the realities of life just the same.   Even most successful , or i prefer to say content and self assured people,  will say that they appreciate life much more for having to work hard for what they got.
