If you’re not familiar with the generational divides they are as follows:

  • Baby Boomers 1946-1965
  • Generation X 1966-1985
  • Millenials – 1986-2005

One of the very best things about bloggers is diversity while still remaining a shining example of inclusiveness. It doesn’t matter where you come from, the color of your skin, your gender, your sexual orientation, or even your passion, When you become a blogger you automatically become a part of this vibrant community.

Apparently, though, things have changed drastically during this pandemic. It began as soon as the world stopped. A campaign of hate launched from anonymous sources thrown at an unsuspecting generation who doesn’t deserve it.

I call it “Boomer Bashing”. It’s a trend where Millenials go to Boomer Blogs and leave angry, hate-filled messages. Threatening, violent comments thrown from those angry, hateful little snots that they’ve been spoiling for their entire lives.

Don’t believe it’s coming from your “little angels”? Take a look at these comments that I found on the web.

A comment left on the blog of a Boomer blogger

You baby boomers destroyed your own children’s future, and then laughed about it and blamed it on them. Do you realize that you are going to end up in a retirement home where you are going to get treated like total trash, and abused? Your children won’t be able to help you, even if they wanted to. Karma’s a bitch, you boomer scum.

or this one:
you boomers are shutting down the entire economy because you’re afraid of a flu. Seriously, can you boomers kill yourselves? You are the most selfish generation to ever exist. You don’t give a shit about climate change, why should we young people give a shit if you get sick and die of some virus? I HOPE the virus gets much stronger and kills you all.

Baby Boomers are being blamed for:

  1. The world shutting down.
  2. The economy downfall.
  3. Skyrocketing unemployment rates
  4. Pretty much the state of the world and any and all problems within it.

These attacks are thrown from the anonymity of the web where they show up as comments on the Boomer’s blog for the world to see.

So while we’re dealing with a pandemic, failing leadership, high unemployment rates, social justice, police brutality, racism, homophobia Boomers now need to add “little junior” who sits in his darkened bedroom owned by someone else, using a laptop you probably gifted them launching bombs that they honestly know nothing about.
