You must be this high to live in Idaho. As a former Alabamian, we take a hard view of states interloping into our crazy sphere. For generations we have held the franchise for off the wall and crazy backwards legislation. The Alabama legislature recently debated banning drugs used to delay the onset of puberty, until the patient was older and had reached an age of maturity.
Meanwhile in Boise, the state’s Republicans will vote to reject the results of the 2020 Presidential election and only the Presidential election. Chipping away at Alabama’s franchise, Idaho proudly takes its place with Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, and the barometer of all national off the hookedness, Texas. Texas was first state to pass their own state proclamation prohibiting the acceptance of reality.
Joe Biden isn’t the President in Texas. Well, he is, but they are going to stomp their feet and hold their breath until they turn blue, if you say it again. It’s so cute, they all get on the floor and set up their little play pretties. And hold their little tea parties and declare who is legitimately in office and who isn’t. Then they get all worked up and hot under the collar and start talking about succession. Can you really reach Fort Sumpter from there?
The bloated self-importance and reactionary dictum, if we don’t get what we want we will secede from the Union! (You tell em Archie!) Why should we succumb to the decisions of national elections? We’re Texas! You know, the Alamo and Willie Nelson. Grandstanding extremist politicians, power failures and hurricanes.
I’m certain that somewhere in the anti-reality party documents is an exclusion. Allowing Joe Biden to be the President again at least temporarily. In case Texas suffers a hurricane or other natural calamity, not caused by the Republicans. But only so they could claim Biden didn’t do enough. And Biden didn’t do enough fast enough. Then automatically, once the situation improves Biden wouldn’t be the President in Texas again. And now, he’s not the President in Idaho either.
Maybe Texas Governor Greg “Bubba” Abbott could take it a step further and solve the immigration debacle, by declaring that Mexico no longer exists. No Mexico, no immigration problem. From now on the areas south of the Texas border will be known in Texas as “Over There.” And all the people from “Over There” will be known as Overtherians.
While television networks all carry the January 6th committee hearings. The Idaho GOP declares reality null and void and therefore invalid. Reality is to cease its oppressive influence on the lives in Idahoans immediately and allow them to live in complete fantasy, if they wish.
America watches as the treasonous Twump plot is exposed to the nation in exquisite and excruciating detail. The dead ender insurrectionists in the GOP vote to put their fingers in their ears and sing, “la, la, la, la, la! We can believe in Santa Claus if we want to!” An obvious indication of a cult. A cult will always define reality to its members and then reward or chastise them by their adherence to this theology.
The man shooting at the congressman’s plane is good and the guy making the Kool aide he’s good too. “Boy, you sure look thirsty. Reverend Jones asks, how about a nice glass of Kool aide?”
It was explained methodically throughout the election cycle. The questions about the election were litigated by numerous court challenges, which they lost. It went through numerous superfluous recounts, which they also lost, yet they embrace the foolish whole heartedly.
Never mind the facts! I say we was cheated! Proof? What do we need with proof? Isn’t it enough that we were cheated? And now they want proof! Your proof is false and our false is true. We reject the outcome of the Presidential election because we don’t like it! The Republicans by their behavior and complicity make it clear that they don’t care what YOU like. They don’t care about law. A nod’s a good as a wink to a blind horse.
They wanted what they wanted and because they didn’t get it. They passed an official resolution that says they did. Living in complete denial despite evidence a plenty. To come forward now after the horse is already out of the barn and declare reality null and void. There is no horse and there is no barn. Go back to sleep you’re dreaming again.
You really begin to wonder who is zooming who? Is the Idaho Republican Party so inbred and ignorant that they actually believe this junk? That passing the ordinance of “I don’t believe in you” is good politics? Are they that lost? Do they really believe this nonsense themselves? Or is it just another line of bullshit fed to the hoosters in the hustings? The weed benders and tobacco chewers listening to Faux News on the AM radio dial. “Well, at least he ain’t the President in Idaho, no more!”
Failed skin care consultant Steve Bannon authenticates an audio clip of himself saying that “Twump will claim that he won the election.” The big lie exposed and exploded straight from the horse’s ass. But what is reality and what does it really mean? The orange apocalypse’s co-conspirator confesses on tape and then confirms that was his voice on the tape. “That’s right! If anyone is listening, we’re GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY!
Bannon has confessed to the plot to try and overthrow the government with an election scam while Republicans in Idaho and Texas in the GOP vote to reject the vote totals from two years ago. Sounds like they are trying fill the Hindenburg with hydrogen at one end, while smoking at the other. Sooner or later, a spark is going to cause a flash of blinding hot reality. Sooner or later, gravity and reality always win.
But Twumpism proves itself a cult and not a political movement, by its steadfast refusal to accept reality. Joe Biden is not their President, unless they need him. Donald Twump is their President, though under no circumstances or powers on earth is that so. It’s a complete fallacy like saying Batman was their President or Wonder Woman. Nonsense, complete and utter nonsense. Yet it is faithful nonsense.
In the face of raw pure convincing evidence and direct conspirator’s confessions, the Republicans vote to deny reality. “it’s only real if you let it be real. If you say that it’s not so, then it isn’t so. Why do you think they call it a cult? Anything goes in a cult of amorality.
“There are people in every time and in every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future, mistrust the present, and invoke the security of a comfortable past which, in fact never existed. – Robert Kennedy
