As probably every reader is aware, a brushfire has erupted on conservatism’s jagged right flank. The blossoming #cuckservative meme has handed a molotov to furious alt-right dissidents who have spent lifetimes watching their civilizational estate defiled by tribal PoCs as the GOP fondled its flaccidity under a beatific grin. Thus rhetorically armed, these masked heretics have set about unceremoniously inserting the lit end of psycho-sexual mockery into the colon of kosher conservatism. The resulting howls of Armageddon! have been ambrosia to the long-dry palate of many.
The combat with mainstream recipients has been enthusiastic, and a flow of after-action reports have trailed initial skirmishes. These from Hate’s camouflaged jungle redoubts all the way to outlets of bland jewish hypocrisy. Conservative cuckoldry: it is an insult whose time has cum.
Responses to this novel rhetoric have been illuminating from many angles. Liberals are obviously delighted at what they dully perceive as their enemy’s internecine warfare. And many are taking the opportunity to gloat at flustered conservatives for the foul bigotry that beget the cuckservative sobriquet. Even though we haven’t said anything until now, we just *knew* the right was racist all along. Yes, the left has certainly been circumspect with its suspicions.
Though rote liberal denunciations are the ambient noise of modern civilization. And thus a thing that merits no more attention than the clucking of barnyard fowl. It is rather the flummoxed reactions of cuckservatives themselves that have been most interesting. And none more so than those desperate to maintain the comforting narrative of liberals are the real racists for keeping blacks on the Democrat plantation. Of course liberals are The Real Racists. But not in the manner conservatives can bring themselves to articulate. And if anti-white liberalism is a plantation, it is one about which blacks are sanguine.
For those absorbing the cuckservative fusillade, however, liberal plantation life just became marginally less accomodating. And–protestations aside–mainstream Republicans are fundamentally liberal. That they shuffle along grumbling in its shadow makes the fact no less apparent. As one example, we can expect it will be months not years before the herd is exalting the sanctity of homosex marriage, and lashing out at nazis who would sully conservatism by denying it.
While contempt for these people is irresistible to any man without wings and a harp, it’s not difficult to understand the operating rationale. They want to reside within polite society. They want to not be ostracized and unemployed. In sum, they want legitimacy. And legitimacy is a currency lent only by the dominant regime. Denials of which are uniform for those residing off-platform. So honest cuckservatives stand as far right as the feudal lords of liberalism will allow…and scream over their shoulder. What other legitimate position is permitted?
And what they may embrace are concepts. Gauzy things such as liberty, capitalism, and
heterosexual marriage. Meanwhile their opposition works with elements closer to the earth. Like blood and soil. It was not simply for sake of surreality that Hillary Clinton complained of Trump’s racism to La Raza. The left ascends through overt tribal appeals and raw demographics in a universal franchise democracy. Conservatives still think the Constitution has a vote. The results are excrutiatingly predictable. If I can be for me while you can only be for “freedom,” I win. So conservatism loses consistently. Do cons imagine this persistent failure is despite or because of their avowed anti-racism? I would think some might take initiative to examine the topic. But that could have grave personal repercussions.
So legitimacy is saved as all is lost. That’s cuckservatism. That’s not learning a critical lesson: the worst aspect of opposing concepts instead of adversaries is that your adversaries end up defining your concepts.
And it’s hard to make MLK proud from a museum exhibit.
