Recently I heard a few teenagers bandying about the phrase 'OK Boomer!' to their hearts delight, laughing as they walked down the street on the way home from school. It caused me to wonder where the phrase came from and what it means.
Baby Boomers, the generation born from 1946 to 1964 (although the author was born in 1964 and considers himself more a member of Generation X, the generation left to clean up the Boomer's mess) don't have a good reputation. They are known for massive increase in the use of drugs, destruction of the family, destruction of American institutions, and generally being irresponsible, pulling American leftwards into the limousine liberal state of affairs she currently finds herself in.
However, in a massive case of delicious irony, in light of what is happening in American society today as the young socialists call out the Boomers for not being communist enough, the 'OK Boomer' meme seems to have been planted by those globalist (read communist) forces intent on finishing the destruction of American society; you know, that society that forged the greatest success ever of human beings on planet earth in terms of economic growth, politics, self-governance, or military power.
Lenin and Stalin made sport of killing anyone with knowledge, anyone with experience, anyone that showed any responsibility. Even the 'useful idiots' were eventually put up against the wall and shot, once no longer 'useful'.
The elders in pre-revolutionary Russia society were very much demonized. They were marginalized. They were made to look like doddering old fools, that eventually became useless to society; hence the Bolsheviks purges, where over a million were killed. This doesn't count the twenty million killed by Stalin later during the starvation of Ukraine and elsewhere, to communize society.
Even today, families in Russia talk about the divide between the monarchist generation and the younger Bolsheviks, who eventually destroyed everything, with no idea of what to replace it with, just more killing.
The same technique was practiced in China, Vietnam, Cuba, Cambodia, North Korea, and on and on.
No, 'OK Boomer' did not casually originate and then spread by itself around the internet. The phrase is meant to demonize our elders, to make them seem like doddering old fools. So, when the elders tell you that communism doesn't work, that 200 million people died in the 20th century due to this evil ideology, the younger generation will just shrug and say, "OK Boomer!' and walk away laughing.
