I was reading a news story about the Trump Putin press conference in Helsinki where our Twidiot-In-Chief announced to the world that he is Putin’s little bitch.
He put Russia first and threw the entire US intelligence community under the bus. It was just one of the dozens of stories I read. Two interesting things popped out at me after reading them.
First, the word “Treason” was showing up all over the place, both on the television news and in the newspapers.
Second, one of the comments on one of the stories about Republicans defending this asshole ended with this: IOKIYAR.
What the hell does that mean? I know it’s internet slang. I know what most of the common Internet acronyms mean.
OMG – Oh My God
BRB – Be right back
WTF – Why the fuss? (Why the Fuss? WTF?)
I even know some of the longer ones.
ROTFL – Rolling on the floor laughing
ROTFLMAO – Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.
IMHO – In my humble opinion (Note: Nobody really means “humble”)
IOKIYAR? Never heard of it. So, I looked it up. It means:
It’s OK If You’re A Republican.
That got me to thinking. Wow, this is a thing that happens so much, has become so pervasive in our world, that people have come up with an Internet shortcut to talk about it. Then I realized it makes perfect sense. The hypocrisy of Republicans has reached levels that were, until the last two years, unimaginable. For any political party. Ever.
The leader of the Senate can deny a sitting President a Supreme Court nominee for more than a year. Not even hold a hearing, yet he tells Democrats they have to be fair to the current nominee and confirm him immediately.
He can later demand the Mueller investigation be shut down immediately because it costs too much and all the evidence they have found must be turned over to them. Even though the DOJ never ever talks about or gives out information on what they are doing during an open investigation.
The current administration is ripping children as young as one-year-old from their parents at the southern border and putting them in “baby jails” while few (if any) Republican Congressmen have anything to say about it.
Yes, but IOKIYAR.
The President of the United States told the world he is a traitor and sides with Russia over his own government. The Republicans said Russia is bad but said nothing about the President who said it.
That’s the world we live in. It’s disgusting, immoral, vile, evil and unbelievable.
Every day I throw up a little in my mouth watching the news. Many times, I’m ashamed to be an American.
Or as Republicans would say “Why the Fuss?”
