Dr Sardonicus, a regular contributor to this website, is a retired academic residing in a Zen monastery in Japan as a long-term paying guest. A former Trump supporter, he is now beginning to have his doubts about the man he once thought might help to “make America great again”.
“Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people!”
— Donald Trump, giving his unstinted support
to Israeli war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu
DR SARDONICUS (quoting Donald Trump) : “When I become president, the days of treating Israel like a second-class citizen will end on day one. We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem” — President Elect Donald Trump, who means what he says and will be Israel’s best friend.
Yes, that needs to be said! It is wiser at this stage to take a man at his word rather than persist in the comforting delusion that Donald Trump means the opposite of what he says. There are clear indications that Trump is working for the top Jews and that he is a Zionist through and through, though he has alienated the rank-and-file small Jews who do not matter all that much.
There are two classes of Jews here, as Israel Shamir noted in a recent article, and they are at loggerheads — and Trump has given his absolute support to the Jews with the most money and influence.
A pattern is slowly becoming discernible.
Trump is above all an Islamophobe. Nothing could be clearer. He appeals to the White Nationalists in America because he has said, “No more Muslim immigrants in America until we can check up on these guys!” And his promise to crack down on illegal immigrants from the south (Mexico mostly) and deport them has great appeal for the White Nationalists who voted for Trump en masse.
Trump was their man, the White Nationalists’ hero, only for this reason: he promised to put a stop to unlimited immigration to America and in particular to single out Muslims for exclusion. He promised to “keep America White”, or at any rate, to stop America tumbling helterskelter into the hell pit of multiculturalism and White genocide that we see in full swing right now in Europe.
But do these White Nationalists give a fig for Palestine? No, they couldn’t care less what happens to Palestine. The Palestinians, after all, are Muslims. They practice Islam, the most hated religion of the West, associated with terrorism — the religion the Jews hate and teach the goyim to hate also by their control of the mass media.
As far as Trump is concerned, the Palestinians can go hang themselves. Judge Trump by his own words on Israel. Only a purblind self-deceiver will mutter to himself, “Ah, Trump means the opposite of what he says! When he says he will treat Israel with utmost respect from day one of his presidency, he means he will do the opposite and treat Israel with utmost disrespect!”
Only a political self-deceiver thinks like this, a person whose entire world view is driven by wishful thinking. Wake up, people! It’s time to see things as they are, not as you would like them to be.
Trump’s Islamophobia becomes even more obvious in his attitude to Iran. He is hostile to Iran. So here are the Jews Donald Trump is pleasing: (a) the neoconservative Jews in Washington who want Iran removed as a threat to their hegemony of the Middle East, and (b) the Israel First Jews in America (i.e. mostly American Jews) who want a Jewish state in Palestine built on stolen Palestinian land.

“Ah yes!” these Trump supporters tell themselves, “Trump must be a good guy because he gets on with Putin and he isn’t going to risk World War Three with Russia over Iran!”
This perception is accurate in so far as it goes, but it lacks subtlety; it is too simplistic.
Trump is above all a negotiator, a businessman who cuts deals. And Putin is a pragmatist, a chess player skilled in the arts of realpolitik. These two will cut a deal. They will reach an agreement not to trespass on each other’s vital interests.
You give me this, I’ll give you that.
And so the deal will be cut. Each side will get what they want, but each will have to make concessions to the other side. Yes, and so the two lions will agree to share the cadaver rather than tear each other apart in fighting over it.
It’s clear that part of this deal involves the complete handover of Palestine to the Jews. Why else the recent $38 billion “gift token” from America to Israel? This money gift is to make Israel strong, and to allow it to expand until Palestine is no more.
Most Americans don’t give a damn for Palestine, a country full of brown-skinned Muslims they hate. How can American interests be served by making the Israelis play fair with the Palestinians? In no way at all.
Bottom line: if you support Trump, you will be supporting a Zionist who intends to hand over Palestine to the Jews. You will be a traitor to the Palestinian cause.
And the picture above, showing a Palestinian child with her head blown off by an Israeli sniper’s bullet, will mean nothing to you. How will you be able to live with yourself then, you sad little conniver in child murder?

DR SARDONICUS (in response to another post in which a commenter had objected to the slur in the phrase “you sad little conniver in child murder”, implying that all Trump supporters were callously indifferent to child murder) : Excellent points, Lobro, and most eloquently expressed! I am genuinely grateful to you for responding to my growing doubts and misgivings about Donald Trump.
Try and understand three things:
(1) Like you and most others here, I gave Trump my full support initially and was relieved and delighted when he was chosen as Potus by the American people and Hillary was put to shame.
(2) I am not anti-Trump right now and realize it is a bit premature to start attacking a man who has yet to set foot in the White House.
(3) BUT — yes, and this is a big but! — justifiable misgivings begin to set in when negative signs occur which make you think that the man you were willing to endorse so enthusiastically in the beginning is NOT so admirable after all.
It’s a bit like this, dear Lobro: say you fall in love with a woman and marry her and your adoration is total as you think to yourself, ‘”Ah, my honeydarling can do no wrong!” And then one day you return home early from the office and let yourself into the house and there she is in the embrace of your best friend, kissing and canoodling on the sofa.
So tell me, Lobro, what will your reaction be to this new situation? Are you so besotted with your honeydarling that you will continue to make excuses for her and kid yourself that she’s just fooling around in an entirely innocent way? Or will you revise your opinion on her?
It’s the same situation with Trump. Will you continue to offer him your unstinted admiration no matter what he does? Will you continue to make excuses for him? I am not trying to be confrontational or personal. That doesn’t interest me at all. My question is addressed not to you personally but to all others on this site who are Trump supporters right now. I am not trying to dent your support or diminish it or throw cold water on your adulation. On the contrary, I am trying to guard against wishful thinking in my own case and I am expressing a certain concern that this wishful thinking continues unabated here among Donald Trump supporters, yourself included.
So I ask myself: when will this dewy-eyed adulation for a potential turncoat turn to disillusionment? when will the gilt wear off the gingerbread? when will the worm turn? when will the scales drop from the eyes of the Donald Trump devotees?
So this is the question I ask you in all seriousness. It is not a rhetorical question, and it is addressed not to you personally and exclusively but to ALL Trump aficionados on this site:
What exactly does Trump have to do before you turn against him?
Betray the Palestinians? Refuse to veto further anti-Israel UN Resolutions? Double US aid to Israel for the building of more illegal settlements? Start a war with Iran? Give military support to Israel as it bombs Beirut and Damascus? Appoint more Jewish advisors? Get a Jewish scriptwriter to write his speeches for him? Give his Jewish son-in-law access to top secret information that Jonathan Pollard would have died to get his hands on, information that would then be leaked to Israel? Move the US embassy to Jerusalem? Continue to kiss and slobber over the Wailing Wall and wear a kippa in the White House? Ban Christmas and make the celebration of Hanukkah compulsory? Convert to Judaism? Declare that his favorite book is the Talmud?
When — oh when! — will you besotted admirers of your New Messiah, Donald Trump, finally come to your senses and admit that the man you backed has let you down badly?
