The level of hypocrisy among today’s poo-flinging Republicans is reaching biohazard level 5 levels. In fact, big fat hypocrites is probably the nicest thing you can call them. Their complete and utter inability to see how much blustery buffoons-alebit classy–like Donald Trump have tarnished their party will be their downfall. And when it comes to foreign policy, their hypocrisy knows no limit.
The memory of Republicans is as short as Ammon Bundy’s man parts. They conveniently overlook the Hainan Island Incident, which was a mid-air collision between a United States Navy EP-3E ARIES II signals intelligence aircraft and a People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) J-8II interceptor fighter jet. The crash resulted in an international dispute between the US and China. The latest incident involving US Navy sailors in Iran was actually our fault, according to the Defense Secretary. However, the Hainan Island incident wasn’t our fault and yet President Bush pleaded mercilessly for forgiveness like a cheating husband. Even though the US crew was held for eleven days and the plane thoroughly inspected for any classified material, Dubya repeatedly apologized.
How ironic that George Bush, a man who invaded the wrong country; squandered trillions of dollars; caused thousands of casualties; created ISIS in Iraq; and virtually tarnished America’s image in the world, and yet he apologized for this??!
Notwithstanding, not a single Republican whined or blasted President Bush about surrendering to the enemy. Better still, not a single Democrat challenged his decision either. So if this isn’t Baracknophobia, then I don’t know what is.
