Millennials — the generation that gave us such priceless cultural concepts such as safe spaces, trigger warnings, and micro-aggressions — have finally encountered a social media trend that makes their skin crawl.
Of course, millennials are often thought about as the generation that made social media what it is today. They trudged through the MySpace phase to give us the modern Facebook experience. They went even further with instantaneous communication with platforms like Twitter and Instagram. Thanks to YouTube, video entertainment is available anytime and anywhere. Naturally, all aforementioned platforms have been used to suppress conservative news content, which means most millennials tend to like them even more.
But then came Generation Z — often referred to as “younger millennials” who don’t remember 9/11 and can’t fathom life without the internet whatsoever. This is the most conservative generation since World War II, and it shows.
Unlike millennials, Gen Z has no sense of loyalty to social media platforms. This is what makes the latest craze — that is, short video clips typically involving lip-syncing and cultural irreverence — so appealing to them. Of course, millennials hate it.
So, why is this relevant? Well, for one, it makes lefty millennials furious. But it’s also extremely telling on how our culture is going to evolve in the very near future.
Here’s Paul Joseph Watson explaining exactly what’s going on here.
