Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
The (Jewish) stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld used to like to start a bit with “What’s the deal with….?” as a way of looking for humor in things people don’t think much about, but are strange when they do. In that spirit- what’s the deal with Trump and the Jews?
We are told repeatedly that Trump is just this side of Hitler. And yet he is popular with lots of Jews, up to and including the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. This bears some looking into.
First, there is is darling daughter, apparently his favorite child, Ivanka. We are told she is a convert to Modern Orthodox Judaism through her marriage to Jared Kushner. But did she really need to convert?
Ivanka’s mother, Ivana, seems to have been Jewish. Her maiden name was Zelinickova and her mother’s maiden name was Francova. So why would Ivanka need to go through the conversion process? I’m guessing one if you are ethnically Jewish but don’t have any practice in your recent family history and want to join an Orthodox family they will want to see Jewish education that amounts to the conversion process anyway. Two, everybody seems to have an interest in the Trump family not being regarded as Jewish, so a shiksa converts.
Ivanka looks pretty Aryan, but that is the magic of plastic surgery- and hair dye. If you look at pictures of her before plastic surgery, she looks like a plain, mousy, rather sad Jewish girl. She had the weak chin that you see sometimes on these girls, but an implant easily takes care of that.
The writer above claims Trump himself is Jewish. He claims his father was Jewish, or part, and that could easily be true. He also claimed Trump’s mother was Jewish, on the basis that her family had the name MacLeod for several generations, so it was likely fake. But Scottish clans were endogamous so all her relatives would have the same name.
Trump’s father was very tight with lots of Jews in the New York real estate business and donated land for a synagogue. Well, what of it, you say? He was doing business in New York and could hardly avoid it.
So we come to the idea of crypsis, which is often discussed, and partial Jewry, which is not. A certain number of people of substantially Jewish background, who would be considered Jews by Jews, do not have Jewish names, do not appear Jewish, or not very much, and do not practice the religion. Nevertheless they are loyal to Jews. Jews know who they are and ally with them. Partial Jews are another matter. Other people have part Jewish ancestry, and are not considered Jewish by Jews. They don’t have Jewish names, look Jewish or much, and don’t practice the religion. They may practice another religion, even sincerely. Jews recognize them also. They don’t have the same status with Jews that the first group does, but they are loyal to the Jews and the Jews regard them as friends.
People who are not Jewish at all can be allied with Jews, but this is a topic I’m much less clear on. Jews are very distrustful of outsiders who want to get close to them. Even marrying a Jew doesn’t help much with this. If you have very longstanding business and business friendship relationships with Jews you will gain some trust, but not too much. You won’t be much more advantaged in dealing with Jews than someone with no personal connection.
The but to this is that I think Jews vary a lot on how much trust they give varying degrees of partial Jews. Some will give a lot, some very little. This might be an issue among Jews, how much to trust a partial Jew, and it might be a heated disagreement. However I think partial Jews are a big help to Jews in dealing with the broader society, so I think almost all Jews use partial Jews to some extent. The hardcore inner circle Jews don’t- they regard less hardcore Jews as the partial Jews- but typical Jews do.
Drawing conclusions about Trump without careful genealogical research is very questionable. However as an educated guess I will say Donald Trump’s father and grandfather probably fell somewhere in the second group. There is a great deal of wilfull ignorance about these things. That Trump’s first wife was Jewish, at least as generally understood in the US, and thus all her three children are Jewish, or entitled to call themselves Jewish, as generally understood in the US is completely ignored.
So we have a man of probably partially Jewish paternal ancestry, who was married to an ethnic Jew, with three children who can be considered at least partially Jewish. So why all the hubbub?
Donald Trump has a character he plays for the media. Real estate is a very political business, and that can be dealt with by being very quiet and behind the scenes, or by being very high profile. Trump has chosen the second. Trump’s character is the wealthy playboy/bad boy. He’s aggressive, he’s snarky, he’s in your face, he’s an arrogant, devil-may-care rake. What resemblance this bears to his actual personality is irrelevant- it may be exactly who he is, but one’s public persona is always a mask, is always chosen for the effect you want, even if it is completely real.
Trump is 70 now, but first came to prominence when he was much younger. The young Trump then was a character quite familiar to viewers of American movies- the villain, the foil, the antagonist in many films, usually comedies, featuring a Jewish or crypto-Jewish protagonist. The “snob” in “the snobs versus the slobs”. The “heel” of professional wrestling, a character defined by another “rich jerk” with a gorgeous blond bouffant, Gorgeous George. The character is always a WASP, but may be played by a Jewish or part-Jewish actor. He will always look more WASPy than the protagonist though.
Trump of course does not get the beautiful blonde shiksa stolen from him at the end of the movie, he doesn’t land in mud while wearing a tuxedo, and his convertible doesn’t get filled with manure. He wins, usually, and loses sometimes, but not in a humiliating way.
Trump however is not supposed to win big. He is always supposed to be a kind of outsider, just as the bad rich boy is kind of an embarrassment to his family. Jews were happy to work with Trump’s father, Trump. and his children, and make money doing so, but he was never supposed to strike out on his own.
But how independent is Trump? He got the idea to run for president from people who told him the idea was ridiculous. The key figure in all this seems to be his son-in-law, husband of his deeply adored daughter, Jared Kushner. Kushner owns a newspaper, the New York Observer, and is said to be a political junkie. And Kushner seems to be a Jewish version of Trump himself- an arrogant, rich bad boy flaunting his family money. Anybody with a mild interest in politics and a nose for opportunity could have seen that there was a big underserved market in the Republican Party primary electorate.
Now we come to the essence of the matter. Is Trump Hitler, or is Trump “good for the Jews”? Trump is neither, exactly, but rests in the sweet spot that Hunter Wallace has dubbed the “Alt-Lite”.
Wallace sees the Alt-Lite as mostly a business move by conservative websites. This is certainly true, but a little harsh. Conservatism has been a victim of its own success. Neoliberal economics started to be adopted by liberals under Clinton and by progressives with the rise of the tech economy. There is no point arguing for something that every single member of the establishment left and right likes. At the same time its excesses have harmed a wide swath of the American public, including many who are not and could never be white nationalists, traditionalists, or Southern nationalists.
Can you be Jewish (or gay) and not want the country you live in to turn into Brazil? I think yes, you can, and very sincerely. The Alt-Lite, like mainstream conservatives, likes the benefits of American free-market capitalism, only it would like to keep them for the pre-1965 population, which includes Jews. You can even be black or Hispanic and not want the country you live in to turn into Brazil, although this is less common.
Elite Jews, left and right, really do think Trump is Hitler, because they identify their issues- free global trade, an unimpeded financial system, sexual degeneracy, unlimited immigration of all kinds, civil rights, etc., with themselves personally. The Jews who vote Republican- because they don’t care as much about these things, and because even stronger support for Israel is important to them- still voted Republican.
Trump is definitely pro-Jewish, and whatever he does, it will be what some faction of Jews wants. His advisors are mostly insiders, and his actions will vary little from the elite consensus. The small deviations will be treated as catastrophes, but we know well that Jews are histrionic.
