Do you think we are getting under their skin yet?
“Those unfortunate enough to follow the right-wing Twittersphere will likely have a passing familiarity with the label “cuckservative,” coined in the Web’s feverish backwaters, but brought into vogue this summer with the ascendance of Donald Trump. The term is not a compliment. A portmanteau of “cuckold” and “conservative,” it has its origins in the white-nationalist movement, as Richard Spencer, president of the white-nationalist National Policy Institute, told the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel …
But the disruptor who has emerged is proving less disruptive than dangerous. Demolition can be a political strategy — if you know what you’re doing well enough to avoid massive collateral damage. Trump doesn’t. He’s not merely an overgrown rich kid, a loutish but ultimately amusing clown; he is a particularly revolting species of id — vulgar, unprincipled, and increasingly poisonous. Perhaps he really does want to blow up certain parts of the current political consensus. But in the process he is also managing to blow up the boundaries of respectable public discourse, and to create space for the most unsavory ideological elements. …”
I would call that a strong endorsement.
Indeed, the above article explains the sudden and abrupt shift to covering mainstream politics here, which I had utterly no interest in until Trump entered the race and these cucks started howling like they had spotted a fox in the hen house. They fear that Trump will blow up their phony dog-and-pony show of “respectable” and “mainstream” conservatism … and that is exactly what is so electrifying about it all.
