Let’s go a bit deeper here.
Here’s an excellent Counter-Current post that I’d like to comment on, in the sense that its points are more generally applicable than just about Trump. Emphasis added to the original.
Never betray your friends to court the favor of your enemies. If you betray your friends, the most principled and perceptive among them will drop you, leaving only the delusional and venal. That is not a good trade, given that the approval you gain is bound to be fleeting and contingent, whereas the contempt and distrust you create will be permanent. The people you betrayed may come back to you out of sentimentality or self-interest, but their trust and respect will never return. They will always regard you as a traitor.
Yes, that applies to Trump, but it applies more general to many precincts of the “movement.” One can, for example, think of “movement” leaders and “movement” sites that grovel to their Jewish enemies (and also grovel to White-hating Asians), while spewing contempt toward their own White ethnic supporters. No names need be mentioned (cough, Amren, cough), but such cases certainly exist. Rewarding enemies while betraying friends is a lose-lose proposition. And the problem is not only the act of betrayal itself that makes the traitor lose the support and respect of those betrayed; it is also the revealing glimpse of what the traitor really thinks of the betrayed; the concealed contempt that is uncovered, the casual indifference that the traitor feels as he/she “throws under the bus” their own supporters to court the favor of others who actually despise the traitors themselves.
We know he knew better, because of a long history of Tweets about Syria, which now make him look like a feckless hypocrite. So for him to fall for the warmongers this time frankly makes me question his intelligence, his character, even his sanity.
EGI Notes has been questioning those aspects of Trump all along. When you label someone as a vulgar ignorant buffoon, a beta race cuck, tool of the Jews, inarticulate fatso, treasonous promoter of “touchback” immigration, etc. I think there’s no “hindsight” in any current criticism of Trump from my direction. It’s all foresight (not that I’ll be given any credit for it, after all, I’m a crazed crank).
Trump has already convinced a significant percentage of the world that he is a dangerous madman. But the Syria pivot does not support that perception. It supports the conclusion that he is a mercurial, hypocritical buffoon who cannot be trusted to maintain his most basic promises.
In short, Trump painted himself into a corner with his big mouth and adolescent fixation on Alpha posturing regarding Obama, and since acknowledging mistakes has never been Trump’s strong suit, it was child’s play for the establishment to spring into action and funnel him into launching airstrikes.
Does Trump base his policies not on a sober assessment of what is good for America, but simply on some sort of egomanical desire to one up and put down Barack Obama and his ilk? Granted, doing the opposite of Obama and Hillary is generally a good guide to policy. But you’d have to be an overgrown adolescent chimpanzee to run a country that way. Could this be why Donald Trump is idolized by rappers?
For the Alt Right, it’s Mourning in America. We believed in this guy. We liked this guy. And now he just seems stupid. Frankly, so do we.
I’ll give Greg credit for that honest admission. I was warning the “movement” for many months that they were going into another Man on White Horse obsession, and now the other shoe has finally dropped.
The Alt Right’s relationship with Trump was always a one-way man crush, based largely on projections.
In the case of Roissy, more like a heavy-breathing, onanistic, homoerotic obsession.
Ending such a relationship is a healthy thing.
Now that the God Emperor has fallen to earth, we need to remind ourselves that Trump was never the end game. He was — and remains — an immense opportunity to smash the current globalist establishment and unleash nationalist, populist, and racialist forces that will be raging into the future…
That does sound familiar. Where have we read that before? You know, it may sound to the reader that this is egotistical “tooting my own horn” but really it is just frustration. Hey, “movement” – it doesn’t matter if you dislike me, think I’m nuts, despise my ancestry, or whatever your problem is, but can you at least listen and consider that perhaps you should take into account the opinions of someone who has been right about things say. 95+% percent of the time. Apart from not taking Trump’s electoral chances as seriously as I should have, I’m hardpressed to think of any major issue I’ve been wrong about. That’s not ego, it is plain fact.
Note also that the Alt Right – even with “bodyguards” – gets attacked by leftist thugs right on the God Emperor’s doorstep. Can the contempt and disregard of Donald J Kushnertrump be any more obvious? And you guys need more bodyguards, it should be the leftists running away from you, not you from them.
