Thoughts on the Boomer Question

The Boomer Question is frequently brought up in Alt-Right discussions in relation to the gulf in values and social views in contrast to Gen X and the Millennial generations.  The Boomer generation harbors a social and political paradigm that is often times at odds with the white nationalist school of thought and, more importantly, reality. To be able to efficaciously navigate interactions with this generation and understand their reactions to current events, it is of paramount importance to understand the key issues on which they hold views that are out of sync with reality and to be able to infer as to the cause for these discrepancies.

The first key issue on which Boomers are ideologically different, from younger generations and the Alt-Right, is the question of race and egalitarianism. The majority of Boomers espouse the idea that all races of men are physiologically and psychologically the same.

I have found they tend to believe in this to varying degrees. Some Boomers essentially see no differences at all and will support ultra-egalitarian points of view and political policy. Trying to explain to them the statistics that corroborate the trend of black men being responsible for the majority of murders in the USA is an exercise in futility.

The other group are those that are aware of the differences, but through some misplaced feelings of altruism, think that the white man bears a responsibility to help these disadvantaged peoples. They would proffer up the future of their children to help feed into and satiate these sensibilities. This feeling of altruism stems from a time when the Boomers were children, living off the teat of the greatest generation. Their enviable position at the top of the heap, being white and well supported, allowed them to be the social justice warriors of their time. They embraced the trappings of Cultural Marxism with zeal. In doing so, policies like desegregation were embraced.

The second key issue on which the Boomers differ ideologically, is on the question of Jewish influence and the United State’s relationship with Israel. On this issue it would seem most Boomers are either incapable or unwilling to recognize the disproportionate amount of influence the Jewish people have over the entertainment, news, and banking industries of the American Empire.

If you tell them that Disney, Sony, and Time Warner are all controlled by Jewish people, you’ll probably only receive a passing remark on how well the Jewish people have done for themselves. Good for them! They don’t realize that this overpowering amount of control of the culture being consumed by Americans is a tool to push any idea they want unchecked. People tend to look out for the interests of their own in-group, and Jewish people are no different in this.

What’s worse, some Boomers even feel a sort of protective pride over the state of Israel. These Zionist tendencies blind many of them from being able to see the truth. Incidents like the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 were quickly explained away and all but forgotten.  The Boomer generation was the victim of the government and media of that time that sold that narrative. Who were they to question it?

Lastly, the Boomer generation lacks an understanding of the contrast between the world they grew up in and the world Generations X and Y have had to contend with. The Boomer generation had opportunities set before them by their parents, yet some of them chose to be indolent and instead railed against their parents as part of the counterculture movement.

Those that did have the agency to go to work found that they could easily get a job that would afford them the luxury of a nice automobile and to start a family. Generations X and Y have come to age in a society that through anarcho-tyranny – has punished them for being white. Those same skilled labor jobs have become a scarce commodity as egalitarian policies have dispossessed young white people from those jobs. In addition, getting a good job is certainly no guarantee that young whites will want to start a family.

The taxation of working class whites to subsidize the existence of those living off the welfare state has made it disadvantageous to start a family.  Yet, many Boomers only see their kids being lazy or incapable.

They ask, “Why can’t you do as I did?”

In case you couldn’t tell, it’s not 1980 anymore.

  1. I am Generation X but by only a few years. I don’t understand the Boomer bashing, and I don’t agree with it generally. It seems like some sort of cultural backlash by WN Millennials who seem to feel marginalized by the older generations. But with age comes wisdom. I’ve known many Boomers who are racist as f*ck and many Millennials who are neo-Marxists. Keep in mind that it generally wasn’t the Boomers who were “feeling the Bern” in this past election.

    1. As with a lot of things, there are some contradictions in how Boomers are viewed by younger generations and how Boomers view us. While there is some truth in this piece, I would be inclined to describe the problem thusly:

      Boomers come from a time when scant few people called the idea of “American exceptionalism” into question. A couple of world wars had recently been fought and won with our industrial might and we put a man on the moon when the Boomers were coming of age. The American middle class was prospering and there seemed to be plentiful resources. As this article stated, getting a job that could sustain a family was not difficult, even for the uneducated. Anecdotally, neither of my older boomer parents had even a HS diploma and we somehow managed a semi-comfortable life (lower middle class to be sure but we never starved).

      I think the problem with (the majority of) Boomers is not that they are too liberal, but that they are unwilling to be radical on any subject. Their generation is the one currently in power, though they are giving it up to Gen Xers now. Be they liberal leaning or conservative leaning, they’ve been trained to keep their views centrist for the most part. I see Gen X and much more so the Milennials as being more willing to hold radical views (be they liberal or right wing).

  2. In my neck of the woods, the Boomer support for Israel is based not so much on “protective pride” for Israel, as in a fear of the Jewish people. This fear based on misapplications of Old Testament scriptures, a misapplication that totally ignores the teachings of Christ, and of Paul in Galatians. My little town prints a “church news” type column every week, and the local Wesleyan church often ends by the preacher telling the congregation to pray for ‘Merica and Israel.
    I tried to explain the Lavon Affair to my 70 something aunt, and got nowhere. She is not open to the JQ. When you have Zio preachers, no historical knowledge, and nothing but MSM news consumption -Boomers can be very hard to reach. Not that there are not some great Boomer generation guys on our side, like Dr. Duke, but he is not on the radar screen of most in his generation.
