While reading Infidel753's excellent analysis of the Donald Trump phenomenon in the GOP, I found a link to an article in the New Republic by one of Infidel753's commenters.
I'd not heard of the term "cuckservatives," nor did I know that the Trumpistas use the term to define the non-Trumpistas and any GOOPer whom they think is not a true believer or whom they think is a RINO.
The article in TNR explains the term:
"The neologism cuckservative isn’t quite onomatopoeic, but it is a fine example of how the sound of a word can reinforce its meaning: abrasive on the ears, cuckservative appropriately enough has an ugly origin and meaning. The term has emerged out of the white supremacist movement as a term of abuse for white conservatives deemed race traitors unwilling to forthrightly defend the interests of white America. Borrowing shadings from porn (“cuck” is a genre where husbands, often white, watch their wives have sex with other men, often African-Americans) and geek culture (“cuck” is a much-deployed sneer..., cuckservative used to be a fringe bit of jargon but is,... on conservative blogs and Twitter, having its moment."
That's not surprising, since their rage and their expressed feelings of impotence after the 2014 elections have been all over Tea Party blogs and chat boards, where they laughably insist President Obama is destroying America, and where one can read their predictions of the imminent collapse of American society and all that the TPers believe is their birthright: Imposing their particular brand of Christianity, their anti-gay, anti-women, anti-Muslim, and anti-science biases on all Americans.
The term "cuckservative" and TNR's analysis explains why someone as politically and personally repulsive as Donald Trump has so many Tea Party followers cheering him on, believing he will lead them out of their self-inflicted misery and onto electoral victory in 2016.
"The far rightists who find it natural to throw around the term cuckservative feels[sic] that the mainstream GOP has betrayed them, so it’s not surprising that they see Donald Trump, who is willing to hurl manly insults at his rivals as well as denigrate undocumented Mexican immigrants, as a savior."
