Baby Boomer Writes That Boomers Are The Best Generations, Gets Dragged By Millennials

Twitter users have dragged an article published in the New York Post which claimed that millennials’ dislike of the Baby Boomer generation is “totally unjustified” and that Boomers are actually the best generation ever.

The article, written by Steve Cuozzo, seems to be a direct response to the “OK Boomer” trend popping up online and even on sweatshirts, but it also seems as overly defensive to the point of downright ridiculousness, and everyone on Twitter really seems to be getting a kick out of how out-of-touch Cuozzo seems to be.

“If they spent more time studying actual history, which can’t easily be found on iPhones, they’d know that boomers were, and remain, the most socially and environmentally conscious generation America ever has ever known,” Cuozzo writes at one point.

He added at another point, “Boomers also won the Cold War against Communist tyranny and along the way brought us unprecedented prosperity and technological innovation. The latter includes the made-in-USA digital revolution that brought forth the gadgets without which millennials couldn’t get out of bed.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Twitter millennials and Gen Z’ers had a field day with this article on Twitter, calling out the blatant inaccuracies and downright absurd (and almost Trumpian in their ridiculousness) comments made in the piece.

“Is the author unaware of Wikipedia, ebooks, full access to the internet and libraries, all accessible from iPhones?” one user commented.

Another wrote, “Imagine typing this out on your windows 97 desktop and smugly smiling to yourself. ‘This will convince those millennials to stop hurting my feelings,’ you say to yourself.”

While obviously not all of the world’s problems are down to Boomers, the fact that that entire generation refuses to take any responsibility for the way things are now is a bit silly.

Have millennials and Gen Z’ers gone overboard in their hatred of their elders? Maybe, but when their defense comes in the form of an article like Cuozzo’s, it’s not really that hard to understand.
