Hater, An App For Our Time

Hater App

Increasingly our developing BOistani culture is defined by people getting together based on what they hate -- Trump, racists, white people, black people, immigrants, people who want borders, gays, Christians, rural folk, city folk, etc.

Hating your "enemies" is considered a BOistani virtue -- or as BO himself intoned. "We need to reward our friends and punish our enemies" -- this has often been called "The Chicago Way", but I believe it to be "The BO Rule" ... the BOistani equivalent of the Golden Rule.

It only seems "right" that in this brave new BOistani world that couples would find shared hatreds as a great foundation for a relationship:
That's the premise of Hater, a dating app that matches you with other users based on things you both hate. The app is only about a month old, but it's amassed about 200,000 users in the US and abroad — it's the No. 1 lifestyle app in Germany right now, the company says — with plans to "take on Tinder."
Only seems fitting for a rewrite of 1 Corinthians 13:13 for the BOistani wedding vows:

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

And now these three remain: faithlessness, hopelessness and hate. But the greatest of these is hate.
