On Cuckservatives

Cuckservative goes viral on Twitter

By Hunter Wallace

The derogatory term “cuckservative” finally caught fire on Twitter last week. Right now it is all that people on my Twitter feed seem to be talking about since mainstream conservatives have taken notice.

Even before the term was coined, the “cuckservative” or “cuckfederate” or “Rainbow Confederate” was already a familiar figure in our circles: picture an SCV commander issuing hysterical press releases denouncing “racism,” and vowing to fight “hate groups” and work even harder to advance “civil rights.”

Because, you know, “fighting racism” and fostering “togetherness” is what the historical CSA was all about:

“Where is the unity, tolerance, and togetherness in denying free speech to those who wish to honor their forefathers? The Hebrew, American Indian, African American, Hispanic, American Cuban, and many others along with many “Whites” who accepted their responsibility to maintain liberty are worthy to be recognized and honored.

Like the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Confederate Battle Flag makes no distinction with regard to race, creed, or religious affiliation:

“The Sons of Confederate Veterans still vehemently opposes the scheduled event on the same date by the North Carolina Chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. The Sons of Confederate Veterans has a strictly enforced hate policy. Anyone with ties to any racist organization or hate group will be denied membership. Any member developing ties to these organizations will be immediately expelled. Prohibited organizations include, but not limited to, the Ku Klux Klan, American Nazi Party, the National Alliance, or any organization expressing racist ideals or violent overthrow of the United States government.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a Historical Honor Society. Our duty is to protect and preserve the history and heritage of the Confederate soldier, both Black and White. The Confederate Battle Flag makes no dissimilarity to race, creed or religious affiliation.

The historical CSA, which had nothing to do with slavery, racism, or white supremacy, was also composed of men who were against the violent overthrow of the US federal government!

As my friend Gregory Hood points out in his seminal article over at American Renaissance, the “cuckservative” or “cuckfederate” has several defining trademark characteristics:

1.) First, the “cuck” maintains a posture of command and puts on airs of respectability, in spite of being completely powerless.

2.) Second, the “cuck” embraces alien ideals, values, or policies, and passes them off as his own just like in nature a cuckolded male raises another man’s children.

3.) Third, the “cuck” will viciously attack his own kind and relish defeat. They are twisted people who embrace their own degradation as a kind of badge of moral superiority. They see people who work in their own interest as being somehow beneath them.

Hood writes:

“Superiority is thus shown by not working in your own interest. As Mr. Lewis replied to Mr. Erickson’s initial tweet about cuckservatism, “They want you to be tribal–to only advocate policies that help your tribe. Otherwise you’re a cuckold.”

This is an implicit admission that cuckservatives are consciously not helping their tribe. They seem to think it would be immoral and would lower them somehow. Meanwhile, every other tribe on earth aggressively advances its own interests.

The original definition of cuckold–a man who raises the offspring of another–comes to mind when we think of conservatives’ apparent glee at the replacement of Americans with ethnocentric Third Worlders. But the moral calculus of men like Mr. Lewis and Mr. Erickson reflects a deeper perversion. Like the man who begs to watch as he is cuckolded, they reframe the reality of inferiority as a kind of weird proof of superiority. Their own degradation is proof of their imagined virtue and make-believe power.”

Cuckservatives are one of the reasons why decades of political victories by the Republican Party have never amounted to squat. Ordinary people vote against abortion, political correctness, or gay marriage and get open borders with Mexico, tax cuts for millionaires, bailouts for Wall Street hedge funds, and job destroying free trade agreements.

The cuckservatives always stand ready to interpret every liberal victory as a conservative triumph: Martin Luther King, Jr., for example, was a great conservative Republican, gay marriage will promote “family values” among homosexuals, open borders will invigorate America with fecund Third World immigrants, the Confederate Battle Flag was a Democrat flag that was taken down by a female minority Republican governor, etc.

The rise of Donald Trump and the cuckservative moment in America are connected at the hip. Millions of people are fed up with the same mawkish, mealy-mouthed cuckservatives who posture as their “representatives” in the GOP dog and pony show. They are yearning for change and see Trump as a breath of fresh air. In much the same way, lots of people are similarly tired of the LARPing cuckfederates and their pretentious claims to sole ownership of “Southern heritage.”

All that disaffection will eventually find an outlet.

  1. Damn. Shows how out of touch this old redneck is. I was using terms like “RINO” and “coward”. It is kinda nasty, yes, a very sexual term, but VERY apropos!

  2. “They worked for Republicans in good faith, but get only scorn and contempt. They’ve been deceived, cheated, and exploited.” – Gregory Hood
    IMO the rank-and-file Republicans are liberals who work for neocon yidberals and plutocrats. Lawrence Auster was correct about how liberal the mindset of Whites in traditionally-White western countries has become.
    “In 1957, United States Senators honored Calhoun as one of the five greatest senators of all time.” What are the odds against that happening now?
    Yidberals always want to outlaw free speech about what Jews do.

    John Brown was an honest liberal, Ape Lincoln was a dishonest liberal, but the yidberals are politically manipulative ethnic chauvinists pretending to be liberals.

  3. What if evangelical Christians of the sort who are political read the gospel as a guide to what not to do?

    Luke 4:5-6 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

    Should Jesus have taken the High Priest’s offer? It’s an open question. I’m sure Caiaphas could have used such a man. He owned Pilate, probably had Caligula leveraged too. If you go up against the Temple you get you get. See he deserved it.

  4. Huckabee is a perfect example. Obama makes a deal with Iran. Huckabee then pretends to be Netanyahu. Then the ADL come out attacking Huckabee.


  5. Cucks, aka respectable conservatives, readily serve their liberal over lords as ratifiers of every anti-White policy to ever come along. Hence, “both sides agree” as a means of shutting off all discussion of any anti-White policy.

    Trump has been destroying these backstabbing losers. Who will replace them as the upgraded ratifiers? Maybe people like Trump himself? Time will tell.

  6. The GOP, SCV, and the submissive Church is the reason our Southern Identity faces Genocide in the near future. I’d say Southern Nationalism is the future of our people! Deo Vindice !

  7. A cuckservative is in many ways what Willmore Kendall called in the late 50’s an “adjusted conservative.” Kendall defined them as “conservatives” who disagreed with liberals on everything but essentials. Kendall and Carey in one of their books put equality as the real dividing line between liberals and conservatives. The cuckservative is on the wrong side of that dividing line.

  8. No surprise that Jewy Joseph Bernstein at Buzzfeed links the term to exact specifics of race where White men are passive voyeurs sitting idly by while their wives are having sex with black men. While that might be part of the negative connotation surrounding the term, it is still only a part as it conveniently ignores the fact that Cuckservatives aren’t just limited in their cuckolding to race. Sacrificing their constituency—almost always White constituents—when it comes to blacks, Mexicans/non-White Hispanics, Muslims, cross-dressing trannies and flaming homosexuals, gay marriage, immigration, and even countless social and economic issues not really related to a race, ethnicity or sexuality have all played a part in their being christened with that term. A Cuckservative is simply a weak, limp-wristed Omega male who doesn’t have the balls to stand up to any kind of scrutiny or pressure when someone comes along and threatens to take what they love or value. Yes, this is most certainly true when it comes to taking positions where they might be called a big bad racist. Some of the cucks are completely powerless and give in without much of a fight. Some of them might even enjoy it and only feign resistance. Regardless, they deserve every bit of contempt and scorn thrown their way.

    I’m not even sure they’ve figured it out yet that the more they wiggle and fight, the deeper the hook is set in them. They now have a greater degree of separation from much of their own constituency than they do the “other party” that is supposed to be the antithesis of what the Republican party represents.

  9. The cuckfederates within the scv seem to think that if only they pander a little more to the non whites that they won’t be labeled the dreaded R-word.So they begin to revise Confederate history and make it into some sort of weird modernistic gay friendly utopia where eveyone held hands and sang kumbaya my lord.It’s a weird world we live in nowadays.

  10. Most cucks never fought for anything. If they played sports, they weren’t willing to bleed.

    Our next message, whatever it is, has to come on the heels of this. Every alt-righter seems to be a Southerner or an ally. Every white Yankee who still has pride agrees with me when I tell them that we’re all rebels now.

    I say keep firing back. If we do, we’ll be less like the league of shadows and more like the continental army.

  11. On the Cuckfederates

    But not to be tedious in enumerating the numerous changes for the better, allow me to allude to one other though last, not least. The new constitution has put at rest, forever, all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution African slavery as it exists amongst us the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution. Jefferson in his forecast, had anticipated this, as the “rock upon which the old Union would split.” He was right. What was conjecture with him, is now a realized fact. But whether he fully comprehended the great truth upon which that rock stood and stands, may be doubted. The prevailing ideas entertained by him and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old constitution, were that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature; that it was wrong in principle, socially, morally, and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with, but the general opinion of the men of that day was that, somehow or other in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent and pass away. This idea, though not incorporated in the constitution, was the prevailing idea at that time. The constitution, it is true, secured every essential guarantee to the institution while it should last, and hence no argument can be justly urged against the constitutional guarantees thus secured, because of the common sentiment of the day. Those ideas, however, were fundamentally wrong. They rested upon the assumption of the equality of races. This was an error. It was a sandy foundation, and the government built upon it fell when the “storm came and the wind blew.”

    Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth. This truth has been slow in the process of its development, like all other truths in the various departments of science. It has been so even amongst us. Many who hear me, perhaps, can recollect well, that this truth was not generally admitted, even within their day. The errors of the past generation still clung to many as late as twenty years ago. Those at the North, who still cling to these errors, with a zeal above knowledge, we justly denominate fanatics. All fanaticism springs from an aberration of the mind from a defect in reasoning. It is a species of insanity. One of the most striking characteristics of insanity, in many instances, is forming correct conclusions from fancied or erroneous premises; so with the anti-slavery fanatics. Their conclusions are right if their premises were. They assume that the negro is equal, and hence conclude that he is entitled to equal privileges and rights with the white man. If their premises were correct, their conclusions would be logical and just but their premise being wrong, their whole argument fails. I recollect once of having heard a gentleman from one of the northern States, of great power and ability, announce in the House of Representatives, with imposing effect, that we of the South would be compelled, ultimately, to yield upon this subject of slavery, that it was as impossible to war successfully against a principle in politics, as it was in physics or mechanics. That the principle would ultimately prevail. That we, in maintaining slavery as it exists with us, were warring against a principle, a principle founded in nature, the principle of the equality of men. The reply I made to him was, that upon his own grounds, we should, ultimately, succeed, and that he and his associates, in this crusade against our institutions, would ultimately fail. The truth announced, that it was as impossible to war successfully against a principle in politics as it was in physics and mechanics, I admitted; but told him that it was he, and those acting with him, who were warring against a principle. They were attempting to make things equal which the Creator had made unequal.




  12. Add Archie Manning to the list.

    John Grisham, Morgan Freeman, Archie Manning, Jimmy Buffett call for change to Mississippi state flag


    Musician Jimmy Buffett, actor Morgan Freeman, football great Archie Manning and author John Grisham are among those whose names were listed on a full-page newspaper advertisement calling for a change to Mississippi’s state flag.

    “It is simply not fair, or honorable, to ask black Mississippians to attend schools, compete in athletic events, work in the public sector, serve in the National Guard, and go about their normal lives with a state flag that glorifies a war fought to keep their ancestors enslaved,” reads the letter in the advertisement, which appears beneath the title: “A Flag for All of Us.”

    “It’s time for Mississippi to fly a flag for all its people.”
