There’s a long list of things that make democrats and republicans hypocrites. However, republicans seem to excel at it! It’s as if they really do take pride in being known as the stupid party. Seriously, some of them feel so strongly about being the stupid party they created a subset called the Tea Party. These are for ignorant fools who feel the religious right isn’t extreme and hateful enough. So it comes as no surprise to me when I wake this morning to see that republicans are once again attacking Obama.
In case you missed “Lattegate”. While President Obama was exiting Air Force One he offended conservatives everywhere. Not a hard thing to do actually. All you need to do is be black, poor, a women, on welfare, unemployed, use facts, understand advanced concepts, go to college, to name a few. Today, we add saluting while holding a cup of coffee. Yes, that’s what has republicans in an outrage this morning. It’s not the unemployment rate. It’s not the fact that we’re dropping bombs again either, it’s all about a fucking cup of coffee.
Now, I will admit that when I saw the video of the president saluting with coffee cup, I thought, “That was kinda tacky.” and then I went back to scrolling through Facebook while sitting shirtless in my underwear at my home office. (Don’t worry, I have pants on now). I kept scrolling because my Facebook feed is interesting. I have some celebrity stuff, lot’s of news stuff, horror movie stuff, TV shows I like. If something happens in the world, my feed will let me know. So I kept scrolling because I wanted to know what’s going on this morning. I am on the left coast, the East Coast had been up for hours already. I wanted to read the updates on Syria, ISIS or as I call them, “dumbshit cowards”. But, I wasn’t getting the news, I was getting all this shit about Obama and a cup of coffee.
Here’s the thing that bothers me about the situation. It was tacky I get it. But, the outrage by republicans is fucking silly. Let’s be honest here. These simplistic morons do nothing but sit around and wait for democrats to fuck up and when they don’t fuck up, they make shit up or they make a mountain out of a mole hill. And, what bothers me the most is that when these fucking idiots fuck up, they take absolutely no responsibility for it. None!
Getting back to Lattegate. So there I was sitting here in my Fruit of the Looms and I decide to make a meme to vent my frustrations. I create this nice piece of artwork. However, as I finished and was ready to go about posting in various comments sections I realized that it just wasn’t enough.
I get so damn frustrated with the audacity and the hypocrisy of the republican party. I know the party well because I used to be a republican. I decided that I just need to rant about it because their bullshit and pettiness has got to be stopped. It must pointed out and their stupidity cannot go unchecked.
So I decided to come up with a short list of things that the republicans do that offend me. The list is in no specific order.
Let’s get started…
The Iraq War. Why is no republican taking responsibility for this? We were lied to about about weapons of mass destruction and went to war over it. How many U.S and allied troops died over that mistake?
President Bush Jr. had at least once had a chance to capture or kill Osama and he basically let him go at Tora Bora by twice refusing extra troop requests to keep Osama trapped in in his cave complex. So with a simple bribe to the Afghan militias that captured him Osama got away.
Another lie that helped to lead us into a war with Iraq, remember being told that al-Qaeda was in Iraq? Well, in case you didn’t know, it was all bullshit. Yet another lie to get us into a war with Iraq. Even as the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence came out with a report exposing the lie, the Bush administration was still telling the lie that al-Qaeda was in Iraq. Where is the goddamn outrage? How many dead soldiers were caused by the Bush administration?
How about these moron republicans claiming that ISIS is Obama’s fault. They tried to spread lies that it was Obama who released the future leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It’s simply not true. It was Bush that had scheduled the release, not Obama. So what do republicans do? They quietly let that go and return to their bullshit claim that ISIS in Iraq is Obama’s fault for getting the troops out of Iraq. Really? United States soldiers were dying at a rate of about about 3 or 4 a week or a day until Obama finally got us the hell out of there. Once again republicans and their short term fucking memory. It was the Bush administration that started a war in Iraq over lies about WMD’s and al-Qaeda. It was that war that actually brought al-Qaeda there in first place and that is why ISIS is in Iraq now. Again, no claim of responsibility from the republican party, it’s always Obama’s fault.
Now let’s talk about all this bullshit over Benghazi. How about we first look at how many times congress refused to fund more security at our Embassy’s. How is it that the majority of republicans voted against the funding? How about all the people that were killed in Embassy attacks under President Bush’s watch? No investigation into those? No outrage over them? Really? They’re just going to let all those deaths slide? I wonder why.
The republican party has become such an embarrassing joke that I am ashamed I was ever part of that party. They have been telling me total bullshit my whole life! They complained that we traded prisoners for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and yet they didn’t bat an eye when they did the same with the “Iran Contras” when we traded arms to secure the release of several hostages among some other dubious things. No outrage, as it went before congress by republicans who basically snubbed their noses when democrats were upset with the concept. Hell, they even made t-shirts wanting Oliver North for President!
Back when Dole was running for President against Clinton they tried to make Clinton out to be a pot smoking hippie communist. What he was, a Roads Scholar that had traveled the world.
The republicans have learned that they don’t need facts. They live by the theory, “Why let a little thing like the truth get in the way of a good story.” It’s become their way of doing business. They simply make up any lie they want and spread it. It doesn’t matter that they know it’s a lie. Their sheep followers will believe it even when confronted with the facts they will ignore them. These people have a cult mentality. They have lost all ability to think for themselves. They live in a world where they will only watch Fox News.
I know these people. A long time family friend of mine is one of these crazy people. He openly believes the most paranoid insane shit that Fox News tells him. And, when confronted with the truth he simply denies it. We don’t talk much any more. I found myself calling him names to his face for being so goddamn stupid. He used to email several times a day with all these bullshit and sometimes racist anti-Obama emails. I was spending all my free time responding to him and factually pointing out where he was wrong. He would never respond or admit the errors. He would just keep sending new stuff. I finally had to tell him to stop it. I just couldn’t get any work done dealing with his nonsense. He’s completely denial of facts and reality were just pissing me off and I had to step back. He spends all his time watching Fox News and they have got him so paranoid and angry over things that just simply are not true or taken completely out of context.
I am angry that a dumbass like Ted Cruz was able to shut down the government in an attempt to blackmail the president and make no mistake, that is exactly what he did. If you think otherwise you might just be an idiot.
I literally could go on all day ranting about the extreme list of bullshit the Republican party is responsible for. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds and as a country we have got to stand up and call them out on it. And, the only way to do this is to get out and vote! Get these assholes out of office. Ted Cruz should be in prison not a member of congress. Mitch McConnell should be fired for turning his back on the people when he openly said that the only goal of the republican part is to make Obama a one term president. And, don’t forget this fucking coward said this at a time when, thanks to Bush, our country was in the middle of the worst recession since the great depression.
Hell, I could even let that comment go if he and the rest of his bat shit crazy republican party actually did something? But, they did not. They claimed to support the troops and yet refused funding to properly fund them. They refused every single jobs bill. They opposed nearly every single bill the Obama administration put forth. In fact these people are so full of shit with their hatred for Obama that when Marco Rubio heard that Obama was ready to work on immigration reform he pulled his own bill off the floor! Once again, they talk a big talk but when it comes to getting anything done, the only thing they can do is complain, blame Obama, vote to wage war and take long, long vacations while condemning the poor for being lazy.
Their actions border on criminal and the only way to solve the problem is to vote them out of office. Vote democrat, vote independent, vote green, just don’t vote republican, not now. I don’t care how level headed you think your republican politician is, he’s a republican and republicans vote republican almost all the time. They are party of sheep plain and simple. Now I am not saying that the democrats don’t have their fair share of sheep and crazy people. They absolutely do. The difference is that democrats don’t listens to the crazy ones. Sadly the republican party is being led by the crazies and people like Boehner who is too much of a coward to stand up to the crazies. At this point in time, the party cannot be trusted and it’s up us to vote them out of office.
