Jerusalem: Why now?
Are you ready for the end of the world? The core voters of Tr*mp's base not only are ready, they can't wait!
Christian fundamentalists have eagerly been anticipating the onset of the Apocalypse at least since 1947, when the creation of the state of Israel began to fulfill one of its preconditions: the return of the Jews to Jerusalem. When the End of the World arrives, they expect to be "raptured" straight to heaven, while the other 90% of the world's population is relegated to eternal damnation. That makes Tr*mp's recognition of Jewish suzerainty over the "Holy City" a very encouraging development.
Meanwhile, in Alabama, Roy Moore's campaign still is threatened. For Moore to win, substantial numbers of Alabamian Christian conservatives will have to choke back the vomit and vote for a child molester. Tr*mp's recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel is a reminder to support their favorite President's agenda by electing his fellow sexual predator — and Moore's vote may be required to pass the tax bill.
At the same time, Tr*mp is providing a much-needed political boost to Bibi Netanyahu, who has been fighting corruption charges; and, certainly, moving our embassy to Jerusalem will make Sheldon Adelson happy. All in all, it was a smart political move, especially since most of America doesn't care one way or the other. Hopefully, the ensuing chaos will be confined largely to the Middle East. If not, well... I'll see you in Hell.
