Yesterday I wrote a piece about how all the bloodthirsty neocons in the Republican and Democratic parties were frenetically banging the drums for war with Syria in response to the extremely suspicious allegations of sarin gas being used on civilians by the Syrian government. Shortly thereafter, those neocons got their wish as the United States launched its first ever direct and open military attack on the Syrian government, which neocons have been itching for since at least 2001.
The subreddit r/The_Donald, the source and summit of all things Trumpster this side of 4chan, is in full damage control mode as of this writing. This was not supposed to happen. Their God Emperor was supposed to end all stupid regime change wars, build a wall, and Make America Great Again. Instead, he’s launching 59 Tomahawk missiles which each cost more than any rank-and-file Trumpster will ever make in a year at the government of a sovereign nation. They’re admonishing the deserters and trying to lighten the mood by making jokes, but they’re not fooling anyone. There’s a pinned tweet by Bill Mitchell trying to calm them all down by assuring them that America is not at war with Syria, but America’s attack was unquestionably an act of war and there’s no good reason to believe with any degree of confidence that Assad won’t retaliate like any other government would. There are uninvited US troops currently stationed inside his nation’s borders that now have a big bright target on them.
Meanwhile one of their most celebrated champions, Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet, has officially left the Trump train. Popular Youtube Trump supporters like Stefan Molyneux and Styxhexenhammer666 have been unequivocally condemning the attacks. Those same attacks are at the same time being loudly celebrated by the very political establishment Trump’s supporters thought they were voting against, including Democratic House and Senate Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, both of whom I mentioned in yesterday’s article.
Schumer said in a statement that “making sure Assad knows that when he commits such despicable atrocities he will pay a price is the right thing to do.”
“Tonight’s strike in Syria appears to be a proportional response to the the regime’s use of chemical weapons,” echoed Pelosi.
The grand empress Hillary Clinton herself had stated that Trump should attack Syria’s air force hours before the attack, and, lo and behold, her gimp-suited little manservant obeyed.
My dear Trump supporters: the neocons all got exactly what they wanted in these attacks. You didn’t. Trump chose to serve them instead of you. They own him. To speak in your parlance, Trump is cucked.
That’s as good a term as any, I suppose. You thought you’d elected a strong independent leader who would refuse to kowtow to the globalist agenda, and not even three months into his presidency what you’ve been given is Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy. The question of whether he was always with them or was leveraged into this position is ultimately inconsequential at this point; whatever the reason, he’s with them now. Not with you.
I don’t say this with malice or any sense of triumph. I had really honestly hoped your guy would come through with the goods. But the Queen was bound to get her way eventually, it seems. The deep state is running this show.
Just wanted to let you know that at least one little snowflake mourns with you right now. I’m still kinda hoping this is one of his 5D chess moves and he’ll slip out from between the GOP neocons and the Dem neocons and have them smash their skulls together Three Stooges-style, and he’ll edge us out sideways from this endless stupid war.
Here’s hoping, I guess.
