Donald Trump – Despised by Europe, Despises Europe

Why is Europe full of hate for Donald Trump?

Is it, perhaps, because millions could soon die in yet another of the senseless and horrible wars unleashed by the Western empire? Or is it because Europeans suddenly ‘saw the light’ and realized that they mistreated billions of innocent people throughout history; that actually all people on Earth are equal and should be left alone and be allowed to live their lives as they please?

Far from that; unfortunately, very far!

Most of the Europeans simply hate Trump because he had enough of the status quo, of what could be objectively described as sneaky and sleazy games.

Mr. Trump sees collaboration with Europe as an extremely bad business.

Not that President Trump is a saint himself. Of course, he isn’t. He is a businessman – a very ruthless one, and in the past very daring and very successful. He has already managed to break the backs of hundreds of people, and now he would not hesitate to run hundreds of countries to the ground, if they’d dare to stand in his way. When he sees that someone is trying to take advantage of him (or of the company he was allowed to manage – the United States of America), he knows perfectly well from where the stench comes, as he has been spoiling the air himself, all throughout his colorful career.

*

The main reason why Europeans are so disgusted with Donald Trump, is because, in their eyes, he is impolite, simply rude. He does not show any respect for the Western civilization; he simply doesn’t care. He snaps at everyone – Europe, Japan, China, Mexico. It is even hard to call him a racist – he seems to hate everybody, sometimes at different times, or simultaneously.

The “Old continent” likes it dandy and smooth. It adores well-mannered people who behave, no matter what their color of the skin is, precisely like Europeans.

You see, if Mr. Trump was acting as an ordinary U.S. president from the upper class, perhaps like Mr. Obama or Bill Clinton were acting just very recently, there would be absolutely no outrage and no protests in London or Berlin. Some 10 million corpses in the Democratic Republic of Congo did not outrage European masses, as long as they got plenty of coltan for their mobile phones, and enough uranium for the NATO nukes.

Millions of corpses in Iraq, Libya and Syria – it mattered very little to bon vivants in Italy, France, or Greece. As long as the gentleman in charge of the world order was polite, as long as he knew how to respect the cradle of Western ‘civilization’ – Europe – there was no reason to worry.

*

Europe used to murder tens, even hundreds of millions of people, on all continents and throughout the centuries. No matter how hard Washington tried (and it has been trying very hard), it was never able to compete with the gruesomeness of extermination campaigns that had originated in Paris, Brussels, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid or Lisbon.

These things are, of course, never pronounced. Both Europe and the U.S. are supposed to be synonymous with ‘freedom’, ‘democracy’ and liberal values, not with the genocides. But of course, Western rulers know perfectly well of what stuff history is made.

To guarantee the stability of Western dogmas and propaganda, almost all U.S. presidents were accustomed to demonstrating great respect for Europe, at least publicly.

After all, Europe is where the American culture comes from, isn’t it? It is from where Christianity arrived. It is where people who slaughtered the great majority of the native Americans came from. It is where the slave owners and plantation owners came from. Europeans were people who were supplying slaves to the “New World”, hunting them down like animals in Africa, raping them, then chaining them inside the monstrously overcrowded vessels. What a legacy; what a civilization!

North America is nothing else than that wild, violent dream of the Europeans come true; a dream of open spaces and almost unopposed plunder: Kill all the natives, rob all that you can, then enslave people from other continents, and bring them to work for free on your plantations and construction sites – chained, humiliated and broken. When you digest your loot, then begin expanding again, as your ancestors – Europeans – were doing for centuries. But this time expand from your new base, from North America (new base but the same culture and the same aggressive hordes); expand towards Latin America and the Philippines, and eventually, towards the entire world.

Let us be very honest: The United States of America is just a huge extension of Europe, with several minorities living on its territory: descendants of slaves, broken native people, and the most aggressive immigrants from all parts of the planet. But it is Europe, in some places ‘diluted’, but Europe nevertheless.

When the Europeans are criticizing, even ridiculing the U.S. (without ridiculing themselves in the same breath), it is truly grotesque. Europe and North America have absolutely the same destiny, same goals and interests. For the last few decades, the U.S.A. has been doing an extremely dirty job, manipulating and plundering the world, on behalf of the entire West. It was rolling itself in filth, while Europe was stuffing itself on refined food, prostituting pristine parts of all continents with its mass tourism, and dictating to everyone how to live and even how to think.

Whatever you think of Donald Trump, it is obvious that he is very well aware of all this. He understands the correlation between Europe and the United States. And he is sick of what he sees.

The entire West is looting, plundering and raping the rest of the world; it does it in unison. Most of the world has by now been converted into a high security prison. The entire West is preventing people of Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East from thinking, and from living their lives as it suits them the best. The entire West is spreading propaganda, dark nihilism (read my latest book Revolutionary Optimism, Western Nihilism”), and it is discrediting, even overthrowing, all socially-oriented movements and governments.

But it is the United States of America that is paying for all this, while letting its workers, the elderly and minorities literally rot in deplorable conditions. It robs and gets robbed, or at least its people are.

Look at the European so-called unemployed, enjoying their sexual escapades in Southeast Asia or East Africa, all at the expense of the people living or rotting alive in countless poor nations. Look at those long vacations, short working hours, free medical care and education, while people both in the poor nations and in the United States, can hardly make ends meet.

Is Europe really ‘colonized’ by the United States? Don’t make me laugh! It appears that it is Europe, which is still colonizing the world, making it work for its lethargy and extravagance. The U.S. has been, increasingly, like an idiot, working and killing on behalf of Europe.

Donald Trump suspects that this is what is happening. I am not sure he can formulate it, but at least he knows, intuitively, that something unsavory is going on.

Donald Trump thinks that this relationship with Europe is a damn bad deal for his country.

One can almost hear him shouting: “If we all steal, if we all have been screwing the world, let us all enjoy the booty. Pay your share, dudes, and let my people thrive, too!”

It is undeniable, that using gangster logic, he is totally right! And the West is, by now, patently, an out of control mafia which is brutalizing the entire planet!

*

Some people in the West, even in the United States, are hoping that the present U.S. administration will manage to disgust Europe so much that ‘the Old Continent’ would crack-off, leave the alliance with the U.S. They think that it would have a very positive impact on our planet.

This scenario could actually happen, but it would be even worse for the rest of the world than the present, already horrible, status quo setup.

It is because the foundations of the present global evil are not in the U.S., but in Europe itself.

“Independent”, rearmed Europe would mean even more suffering for Africa (just look what France has been doing recently in its former colonies), Asia (U.K. in Afghanistan), the Middle East (EU supporting Saudi Arabia in its terror drive against both Yemen and Syria) and elsewhere.

It is clear that Mr. Trump is concerned about his country. He is trying to put the interests of the U.S. first, not the interests of the West in general. Is he doing it elegantly? Definitely not. Is he a genius? Hardly.

But who knows, he may think that his people could be better off if he tries to move closer to Russia and Asia Pacific. That could be quite correct. After all, cooperating with Europe never brought many benefits to anyone. Europe is too tricky, too selfish, and too brutal. It only takes, never gives.

The entire U.S. liberal establishment is in disarray. It is totally Euro-centric. It seems to be more pro-European than Europe itself. It actually is Europe. Could the United States under Donald Trump become cosmopolitan? I am not sure. We will soon find out.

Both Europe and the former ‘U.S. pro-European regime’ are notoriously, fundamentally anti-Russian and anti-Chinese.

Donald Trump is definitely not pro-Russian or pro-Chinese, but it appears that he dislikes Europe as much as he dislikes the others. Such a neo-egalitarian approach may actually bring some fruits and relief to our planet.

If you have acquired, inherited or accepted definitions that you live from, then you have an involvement beneath the surface waking conscious sense of self. However, this is not a matter of personal guilt – unless you become aware of such habits and make them you conscious personal choice. Then you have set the measure of your own reward and can realign in giving as you would in truth receive instead of running under ‘narrative control’. So in terms of being guilt-manipulated by others, I stand with you against such deceits. But in terms of a greater compassion for others… Read more »

Even the writer must start off by describing Trump as a ruthless businessman. By inference all businessmen are ruthless and politicians less so, showing the typical bias of academics and their envy of the rich. The truth is that all politicians seek to feather their nests financially. How much better to have one who doesn’t need to compromise himself for money’s sake. In effect Trump is his own PR man. He is what he is and exposes himself on Twitter for all to see. He does not have the slick well oiled PR machines of the Establishment or the plausible… Read more »

“Donald Trump – Despised by Europe” A mayor error in the first 5 words: Trump is despised by the EU top and a number of their Establishment supporters. Trump is “admired” by a majorities in Italy, Austria, Hungary, Tjechie, and minorities in France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and elsewhere.

“But it is the United States of America that is paying for all this,”

That’s (careful auditingwi$e) questionable.

“while letting its workers, the elderly and minorities literally rot in deplorable conditions.”

Unquestionably.

“It robs and gets robbed, or at least its people are.”

That’s 99% of organized “society”, from primitive tribal to advanced capitalist, everywhere, at any time.

Mr Vitchek’s analysis is flawed by disingenuity – Trump is a far more complex character than he gives credit for – this is all far beyond either ‘admiring’ or ‘despising’ Trump. He is admired by those he misleads, yet is despised by those that are leading him – or at most, attempting to lead him – however, a truth has emerged that social media are truly a thorn in the side of the corporate media – in a sense, social media are soon to assume the mantle of mainstream communication – if they haven’t already done so – Trump is… Read more »

True, “Europeans” (Jewish and not) supplied slaves to the “New World”, but “hunting them down like animals in Africa” is stretching the truth. I think Vltchk would find that Africans did that part of the slave trade. Then we have “raping them”: is he just making it up? And, correctly, “chaining them inside the monstrously overcrowded vessels”.

As to the rape of slaves this undeniable. The evidence is voluminous. And everywhere in America. So far as the African involvement in procuring slaves is concerned, nobody ever denied that Africans were the principal sub contractors supplying the trade. It has to be understood however that the African institution of slavery differed enormously from the American and particularly the North American models geared to capitalist commodity production in which supervisors terrorised the slaves into working.

this article is disappointment to those of us who enjoy andre’s efforts. Leaving aside the nonsense on Trump, who is simply a hook to hang the piece on, at the core of the article is a half truth. That imperialism is a half milllenium long disaster for the world is true but the idea that it has been a means of transferring wealth in the colonised countries to the people of Europe is not true. The truth is that imperialism was a disaster which struck the poor people of Europe at the same time that it hit America, Africa and… Read more »

This is so true, and I wish that more people on the left were aware of this fact. Whenever I hear liberals go on and on about how colonialism and imperialism made “the West” rich, I wonder if they’ve ever read anything by Charles Dickens or Upton Sinclair describing the wretched conditions in which working-class people lived and toiled. They must think that all whites were the golfing buddies of Cecil Rhodes!

What I don’t see mentioned in your brief response is the corporate capture and primacy of emerging technologies to which the world and the people in it are subjected, captured, managed and exploited. The corporate ‘socialism’ or combination operates the ‘fascist’ cartel as the mercantile driver of what is often called imperialism. The corporate capture of states within a broader spectrum of influence is underpinned by corruptions of the law – such as the assigning of currency control to Fed Reserve or the globalist medical monopoly of Pharma as power by stealth and guile.

Blah, blah, blah. As Vltchek himself might point out: How does any of that make Trump different from all the other recent US presidents? But the fact remains that he does differ in few interesting ways: 1.) He takes a rather dim view of ‘free’ trade, having finally killed TPP and criticized NAFTA. 2.) He takes a rather dim view of NATO, and has put the other members (Merkel especially) on the spot by pointing out their rank hypocrisy, calling Russia and enemy on the one hand, while buying more and more gas from them at the same time. 3.)… Read more »

Trump is a weapon of Mass Distraction, a Puppet, a Stooge and perhaps yet to claim his final title, a Patsy. Trump has no loyalty to Americans. And he is a conveyer of policy not a driver.

Those that do not hold two passports are all Zionists with deep state power carrot and stick persuasion mandating their collusion.

I think the great western empire split into two halves a couple of centuries ago, after the so-called ‘American Revolution’, but the links were never completely severed. Gradually the New World became the leading part of the empire, especially after the Europeans virtually destroyed themselves by indulging in the two great ‘civil wars’ to stop Germany becoming the greatest power in Europe. Those wars on delayed the inevitable. How tragically ironic is that? I can see what he’s getting at, but I don’t agree.

I think that the disgust for Trump, the political and medial humilation of him in Europe has the reason that all those vassal minded people know very well where the true power is! With the US (Neocon) Power Elite, which wants to get rid of him. So they know that their masters like them to degrade a President (whom you rightfully characterized as a very dubious character) in a way which a US President has never before been treated in Europe.

Usually, they like to pretend that Europe had no history of significance before 1945 and ignore the inconvenient parts of history post-1945.

I’d bet that Trump’s father was an America Firster of the pre-Pearl Harbor era. Those people (I used to know some of them) were pretty cynical about the intrigues of the pro-war factions. The record shows the CPUSA of 23 Aug 1939-22 Jun 1941 was much the same.

Some very interesting observations, Andre.

But isn’t there a danger Trump has become something of a political version of Kate Moss – an essentially blank canvas upon which others project a variety of fantasies?

I tend to see him as a latter day Brian – not the messiah but a very naughty boy.

Anyway, no matter how we characterise US/European relations they long predate Trump and are intertwined in such a way as to suggest they will persist long after he’s gone (armageddon permitting).

Not a danger so much as a design. What is projected onto Trump is to a large degree predictable and manipulatable. Power by deceit is not just the ‘end of the world’ but also its ‘beginning’ in terms of taking power unto ourself apart and alone – and thus necessarily in struggle with others and with our world and of course with the truth of our own existence. How does a lie struggle with the truth? It does not and can not – and so it struggles with a version of image and symbol substitution of feared or hated ‘truth’.… Read more »

By Europe? By Europeans? By the ‘leadership class’ of Europeans? By the European spokes-media for investment-captured elites? Trump is largely ‘despised’ because he openly and flagrantly speaks and behaves without courtesy or consistency. But more perhaps because he is set up as a hate figure by the corporate spoke-media that is also the arbiter of the guilt-driven ‘correctness’ that he does not uphold or conform to. This gives him credibility with many who are hateful of either the guilting agenda or of being suppressed by coercive correctness.

“the West is, by now, patently, an out of control mafia which is brutalizing the entire planet!” – the author

500+ years of this brutal murderous Western insanity and the best those running the show can give us at this point is “the Skripnals” and “Russiagate” as diversions from the reality that this house of cards may be finally coming to a rather inglorious end, and much sooner than most of us would like to believe. Vltchek as usual doesn’t pull any punches and is right on the money in his analysis.
