‘Boomer remover’: Gen Z, Millennials wallow in self-pity as they mock potential deadly hit on elderly

If you’re an older American, then brace yourself, for it appears your younger millennial and Generation Z compatriots are sort of pining for your death. Or, at the very least, they’re celebrating it as they kvetch about their allegedly miserable lives.

They’re doing so via the #BoomerRemover hashtag, which is being shared partly by Communism-loving whippersnappers who resent their elders.

Case in point:

The trend appears to be sparked in part, over reports that some ‘boomers’ are reportedly planning on going about their daily lives as much as they can during the outbreak.

**Warning for some language ahead** 

They’re also upset that boomers have ‘ruined’ the planet:

And it’s taken over Twitter:

Speaking of one not knowing “what you’re talking about,” wages are up for most Americans, save perhaps of course for the lazy and apathetic.

In fact, according to the latest Gallup data, 90 percent of Americans “are satisfied with the way things are going in their personal life,” save perhaps of course for the lazy and apathetic.

Suffice it to say, those Americans young and old alike who are taking charge, leading responsible lives and working hard appear to be faring just fine.

Meanwhile, those who prefer to stew in self-misery are suffering, as they want to do regardless of the political and economic climate.

The #BoomerRemover hashtag is also being shared by those trying to make some point about political correctness:

Is that a fair argument? It depends on whether you see an equivalency between politically incorrect humor and the blatant celebration of people dying.

On that note, it likely also depends on whether you’re the type of person who likes to chant “love trumps  hate” in one breath but turn around and cheer the deaths of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, former first lady Barbara Bush and former FNC host Eric Bolling’s son in the other.

It may also depend on whether you’re the type of person who demands a “safe space” when confronted by opposing ideas, raunchy humor or President Donald Trump.

Among those sharing the #BoomerRemover hashtag are also those who resent older Americans for supporting fiscally conservative policies that call for reigning in unsustainable entitlements programs and opposing Medicare-for-All.

Look:

The president has mulled calling for cutting Medicaid and Social Security, but not because he seeks to destroy the programs. Rather, he seeks to make them sustainable so that retirees don’t face far more draconian cuts in the future.

“[T]he program will soon begin expending more money in a given year than it brings in. This hasn’t happened since 1982, the year before Congress passed the last major bipartisan overhaul of the Social Security program,” The Motley Fool notes.

A net-cash outflow, no matter how small, is concrete evidence that the existing payout schedule, inclusive of cost-of-living adjustments, isn’t sustainable. Per the Trustees report, by 2035 these net-cash outflows are forecast to have completely wiped out Social Security’s nearly $2.9 trillion in asset reserves (i.e., aggregate net-cash surpluses that have been built up over time and are invested in special-issue bonds). When these asset reserves are gone, estimated benefit cuts of up to 23% for then-current and future retired workers would soon follow.”

Again, it seems like the millennials and Generation Z whippersnappers crying loudest about how older Americans don’t know “what you’re talking about” are the ones actually ignorant of reality.

Of course, for every action there’s almost always an equal and opposite reaction, and thus is the case with the #BoomerRemover hashtag, which has in turn inspired plenty of grown adults to come out swinging not against boomers but rather against these young boomer haters.

The hashtag has also inspired them to remind their young brethren of all that the boomers have endured.
