Trumpkins Are Going to Get Cucked Just Like the Republican Party Did

If Donald Trump gets the chance in November.

Every day, the odds that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States are going down. Trump's chances of winning the election are at 19.4 percent according to ElectionBettingOdds.com, down from 30 percent three weeks ago. The Republican National Convention was not followed by a pivot in either tone or substance by Trump, as some expected.

Last year, internet fans of Donald Trump started using the term "cuckservative" to describe conservatives who were skeptical that Trump, a life-long New Yorker with a history of donating to Democratic politicians and holding conventionally Democrat positions on issues like taxes, abortion, and guns, would be a competent standard-bearer for the Republican Party. The whole thing was ridiculous from the beginning. The "cuck" part comes from "cuckolded," a term to describe a man whose sexual partner, unbeknownst to him, produces offspring by another man. If anyone was being cuckolded it was Republicans that were supporting the one-time Democrat who displayed an ignorance of basic conservative and Republican principles.

Trump, of course, eventually became the Republican nominee, and continued to say things that weren't simply not conservative but showed a disdain for conservative principles. Talking about the minimum wage, Trump said it wasn't "very Republican" to say "you need to help people." Last week he joked that "Second Amendment people" might be able to do something about a putative President Clinton's anti-gun judicial picks, playing on a liberal trope that legal, law-abiding gun owners are all actually just one step away from exercising their right to revolt.

At the Democratic National Convention, President Obama noted that Trump was neither a conservative nor a Republican. It was not a particularly self-serving observation. Obama was re-elected in 2012 after running a campaign in which he tried to portray the moderately conservative Mitt Romney as "severely" conservative—something Romney himself pushed when seeking the nomination. Democrats have spent a lot of time demonizing Republicans and conservatives, so its noteworthy the president would point out Trump is neither. It's true. In that sense, Republicans have already been cucked. When Trump said Obama was the founder of ISIS, Republicans like Rudy Giuliani came out to defend his statement. Then he said he was being sarcastic. Trump has fucked with Republicans in this way for months, because he isn't one of them. Neither is he a conservative, constitutional or otherwise. He's barely mentioned the Constitution, for example, and his supporters like Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity have taken to describing him more often as a populist than a conservatives.

Trump may not be done with the cuckolding—if he wins, he could cuckold his supporters themselves. After all, he's already taken pretty much every side of every issue, laying the groundwork to make any policy decision he pleases. Trump supporters shouldn't be surprised. He explains the strategy in Art of the Deal—writing about playing to people's fantasies and offering whatever it take to get a deal done. Trump isn't articulating policy stances, he's floating negotiating positions. If he wins the presidency, he'll pick the ones that work best for him. Trump's own business enterprises, like many, rely on limited barriers to trade and on immigration. These are the issues that seem to motivate a lot of core Trump supporters, and Trump used those issues to get him as far as he's gotten. But his current stances (such as they are) on those issues might not offer such a good negotiating position from the White House. He's already cuckolded the Republican Party as an institution. He may yet get the chance to cuckold the supporters who enabled that.

  1. I’ve been saying “cock hold”. Boy do I feel silly.

    1. I still think “cuckservative” was originally influenced by “cuck” in the sense of “ca-ca”, i.e. “dutyservative”.

      1. “…playing on a liberal trope that legal, law-abiding gun owners are all actually just one step away from exercising their right to revolt.”

        Why do I have guns in my home? 25% to ward off the illegal thugs, who aren’t all that prevalent around here, and 75% to get ready for if/when Government Almighty steps way the hell out of line… That is, to fend off the LEGAL thugs! Like, there’s Laws of the Universe that this can NOT happen here!?!?! WTF, fending off the would-be tyrants from Government Almighty is NOT just a “liberal trope”, it is a VERY real possumability!!!! Not just yet, and I hope it never happens, but, it ***IS*** a very real possibility! I consider all non-violent “drug offenders”, and more, to be “political prisoners”, frankly… What percentage of non-violent people need locked up, before we forcefully say, STOP”?!?!?

    2. Started working at home! It is by far the best job I have ever had. I just recently purchased a Brand new BMW since getting a check for 25470 dollar this 7-week past. I began this 6 months ago and I am now bringing home at least 97 dollar per hour. I work through this website. Go here… http://bit.do/OpL0a

    3. My last pay check was 9700 dollar working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out.
      This is what I do,…. http://bit.do/FOX92

  2. “you hear me, trumpkins? No, YOU’RE the REAL cucks!”

    Low energy attempt from Reason.

    1. Yea, turns out the fanatical trump supports were all projecting. You see this a lot in ideologically charged debates.

  3. “you hear me, trumpkins? No, YOU’RE the REAL cucks!”

    Low energy attempt from Reason.

    1. Cut Ed some slack. It’s nearly 7:00 AM and he hasn’t had an opportunity to cry “raaaacist!” even once yet. He’s probably suffering withdrawal symptoms.

  4. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

  5. All these fingers pointed at Trump.

    The R’s did it to themselves. Bunch of fucking spineless squishes refusing to lift a finger to stop a Democratic party that barely bothers concealing that they have been taken over by straight-up socialists.

    When, after the R congress passed the last budget, the leaders of the D party are giddy and all say they cant believe they got everything they wanted, of course the R base wants someone to bring a wrecking bar to the table. A Trump supporter I know was puzzled by my lukewarm feelings towards him so he asked what my objection was.

    “I don’t want someone who can negotiate and work with nancy pelosi and her ilk. I want someone to go to DC and kick the shit out of them.”
    The same goes for the R establishment.

    1. I understand the sentiment. I just don’t understand how millions of people concluded that Trump was the guy who was going to do that.

      1. His bluster and contempt for PC.

        The guy who was most likely to mitigate and out of control FedGov barely got any attention at all. He just isnt flamboyant enough.

        1. This – and simply being something different.

          I think the ears of some voters have become tuned into the bullshit of talking points. When a candidate starts speaking in campaign manager written, focus-group tested talking points, they just tune out. When a guy like Trump answers questions in plain English, they actually pay attention – no matter what he’s saying.

          1. This, plus one other factor: the culmination of the merging of politics with the entertainment/celebrity culture, with someone known to most people only as a celebrity becoming a politician.

      2. This is me, exactly. I completely understand why lots of people are pissed off at the RNC, I just don’t get why they think Trump is any kind of solution. It’s kind of like if a high school kid decided to protest lousy food in the cafeteria by bringing in a turd sandwich. Okay, you shocked some people and got some laughs, now let’s do something serious about the problem. Except, these people insist on actually eating the turd sandwich. Not just that, they insist that turd sandwiches are both yummy and a vital part of a healthy diet. Why, if you don’t eat this turd sandwich, you could die!

        What makes it even worse is that this isn’t just coming from the kind of clueless goobers I expect to spout nonsense, I’m hearing it from a lot of people I had previously thought were reasonably bright and rational. I just don’t get it.

        1. Let me help you as a libertarian for Trump. The issue at hand is cultural marxism. In the long term view for a libertarian society Trump is the better choice.
          If western civilization is destroyed which will happen will immigation and refugees, western society will be bred out of existence. Johnson is for open borders. It’s a non-starter. If western society is destroyed libertarianism has 0 zero chance.
          Do we need to bring up crime statistics of minorities, of recent immigrants? how about data of SES outcomes? How about IQ scores? single parenthood? welfare usage?
          We are privy to watch this play out in real time in Europe. We actually get to see data of Europe before large pop migrants and today.

          A group of libertarians has split from Reason and the rest of the L Party. The most prominent of these data driven Libertarians is Stefan Mol. The immediate goal now is to save western civilization.

          1. Also Gary is polling well now because of virtue signalers and muh weed. Not much changed in people’s ideology.
            People have not suddenly understood the NAP. They just want to point out that they are not racist. People are so afraid of being called a bad word by voting for someone it is hillarious.

            “I’m not a racist, I voted for Johnson” . That should be the LINO’s motto.

        2. Trump is more like a mystery meat sandwich and if you do not eat it you WILL get stuck with the turd sandwich.

      3. Trump is like a lottery ticket. You’ve got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk.
        I think of him more as a wild card. I’d prefer to potentially suffer under him than assuredly under Hitlery. No way would I reward that super cunt with my vote.

    2. Bunch of fucking spineless squishes refusing to lift a finger to stop a Democratic party that barely bothers concealing that they have been taken over by straight-up socialists.

      Are you saying this is the perception of Trump’s voters, or do you actually think it’s true?

      1. No. He means Libertarians. Trump voters are much less effeminate. NTTAWWT

      2. It’s the perception of the GO Pee Platform Committee. If God’s Own Prohibitionists are stopped from forcing non-grandmothers to reproduce at gunpoint, nobody will be brainwashed into prohibitionism for Jesus and the godless commies will take over and end civilization just like they did when Clinton and Obama failed to destroy the economy. Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon, George Holy War Bush and George Waffen Bush brought asset forfeiture crashes and depressions to really destroy that economy. Every libertarian spoiler vote repeals prohibition and tax laws better’n ten votes wasted on either gang of parasitical looters.

    3. Bunch of fucking spineless squishes refusing to lift a finger to stop a Democratic party that barely bothers concealing that they have been taken over by straight-up socialists.

      This is an unsatisfactory explanation for the rise of Trump. Many of his positions are barely distinguishable from labor-centric socialism. He’s no one’s idea of a small government conservative.

      1. I agree with you, but I think the real attraction that Trump has for Trump supporters is that he APPEARS to be willing to bring the fight to the Democrats/socialists.

        He basically fits the “attack dog” role that must be played in politics. I fought with an attack dog on the same side as me in pro-gun-rights. To him, winning was everything, even beating people on the same side, and he was openly proud of his “winning ability.” A lot of others who saw this fight were drawn to his attack dog behavior, and he was encourage to found a smaller pro-gun attack organization.

        Eventually though, as I publicly predicted, he started making too many enemies of people on the same side, and he has essentially “taken his ball and left the playground,” so to speak. He’s still in his little attack organization, but people from the larger, more general group have stopped contributing donations to his group. He’s built a little cult-of-personality that still supports him.

        All this parallels Trump perfectly.

    4. “I don’t want someone who can negotiate and work with nancy pelosi and her ilk”
      Then stay the hell away from Trump. He has said many many times that he’ll work with everyone.

      1. That’s a lie. He’ll work with everyone who kisses up to him and totally diss anyone who doesn’t. (See how he’s threatening to revoke the press passes for papers that criticize him.) That’s a fundamental trait of all Narcissistic Personality Disordered people (including the even more sociopathic NPD Hillary, who won’t even help her own closest followers).

        1. “(See how he’s threatening to revoke the press passes for papers that criticize him.)”

          Well, that is one way to cripple the liberal media.

    5. Thank you for posting for me.

  6. The Trumpkins may well get cucked, but at least they won’t get assassinated on the streets and in their own homes, like Bernie Sanders supporters who become a little too much of a pain in the ass to Team Hildog.

  7. Blind squirrel, acorn:

    ” Trump isn’t articulating policy stances, he’s floating negotiating positions.”

  8. Trumplings are William H Macy in Boogie Nights.

    1. Libertarians are Alfred Molina in Boogie Nights.

    2. Trumplings are William H Macy in Fargo. Think they’re big wheeler dealers, even though their plans keep going to shit, but it’s never their fault, the world is just against them.

  9. Since you’re a comment-dweller, you know the word we like around here, Ed: projection.

    There’s a reason Milo chose the epithet Daddy. He didn’t pick it out of a big red hat.

    1. He choose it because he knew half wits like you and Ed wouldn’t get the joke. It is astounding how literal minded and stupid you people are

      1. I’m saying it is a joke. And the joke is on Trump and his supporters.

        Idiot.

  10. Ed – keep telling yourself this, maybe Trump will lose. I would still bet on him since he’s running against Hillary.

  11. Lick them Cankles, Trumpkins. Yum yum!

    1. Please sue the DNC, Weigel.

  12. So what you are saying is that the republicans shouldn’t let trump come inside them?

    1. Ed thinks they should leave that to the Johnson.

  13. “Cuckservative” is a term created by (or, at least, initially promoted by) the blogger “Vox Day”. It is the title of one of his books.

    Last fall, Vox Day claimed that Trump was the only candidate who matters, because Trump was the only one talking about the problems of immigration. Not merely illegal immigration, but immigration itself. He asserts that immigration is a form of invasion, with the ultimate goal of conquest by the immigrants.

    He also asserts that, if the established parties manage to thwart the nationalists from gaining power, then the ultranationalists will be the next group to attempt to seize control.

    1. Ultranationalists are as easy to beat as trump nationalists. If they want to go violent there’s a suitable response for that too.

      1. If Europe is any indicator, ultra-nationalists are not the first lunatic fringe you should be concerned about violence from. The communist left have them beat, both metaphorically and otherwise.

    2. Right. “Cuckservative” is a favorite word among the alt-right and paleos, it existed as a term of abuse long before Trump appeared to be a serious candidate, and will probably outlast him. The “cuck” part is meant to be taken fairly literally – the accusation is that mainstream Republicans are allowing immigrants and minorities to outbreed white men, and allowing immigrants and minorities to take “our white women”. As long as Trump stays true to a racist and exlusionary immigration policy he won’t be a “cuckservative” no matter what Democratic stands he takes on taxes, pot legalization, gay marriage, abortion or prayer in schools.

  15. The “cuck” part comes from “cuckolded,” a term to describe a man whose sexual partner, unbeknownst to him, produces offspring by another man.

    I thought a cuckold was a man who knowingly allowed or is forced against his will to watch while his wife or gf fucks another man, regardless of whether actual offspring are produced. The implication being that they’re not man enough to satisfy her themselves or stop her from fucking some other dude. At least that’s what totally legitimate “research” on pornhub has lead me to believe…

    1. I used the evolutionary definition since I thought it was the better fit for the metaphor.

  16. Trump has no policies. As soon as his “positions”–and his supporters–become inconvenient or get in the way of his next deal, he will toss them like a used condom. It’s almost sad that his supporters don’t seem to realize this.

    1. They don’t realize he’s a politician and will do things like politicians have always done? Could be.

  17. The good news trump won’t be elected this November. Bad news it looks like his crony Hillary will win in a landslide.

    1. It’s quid pro quo. He makes sure Hillary gets in, and then she issues Executive Orders that benefit Trump’s business.

      He always was a crony capitalist.

      1. No, no! Because he knows the crony capitalist system so well, he’s the man to dismantle it.

        No, seriously, people I had always regarded as reasonably bright keep telling me that, and I think that many of them actually believe it.

    2. Yeah. The race is pretty boring considering the certain outcome. Which means the MSM is going to have to do something to liven it up and keep up ratings.

      Fortunately for them, Trump is going to keep supplying them with red meat without having to actually rise in the polls. It’s going to be an entire election season of watching Trump utter buffonish statements and debate how badly he’s going to lose.

      Which is exactly what I predicted. Yawn.

  18. RE: Trumpkins Are Going to Get Cucked Just Like the Republican Party Did

    I really don’t see a problem here.
    Either the fascist Trump the Grump will win and launch a few fascist state, or Heil Hitlary will win, and we will all enjoy the joys and benefits of being slaves in her new socialist totalitarian society.
    I might go to Chicago and vote fifty times for both candidates.
    Talk about dreams coming true!

  19. These Trump supporters are going to get cucked because they are false “alphas.” Instead of being real men and developing self-worth from within and having a mission, they are worshiping some lame fake businessman and hanging off his coattails while jacking it to his wife and blaming everyone else because they can’t get laid. True alphas don’t need the whole scapegoat thing and instead of blaming everyone else for being broke and celibate they go start a business or something else that shows initiative and stop being unattractive slovenly potato faces.

  20. Most of the primary voters supported non Trump candidates.

    Trump put the primary away when he swept the ultra blue northeast, where something like 500 republicans came out to vote. An angry plurality of that small group could deliver entire states or a lion’s share of the delegates to Trump. Yeah, it doesn’t make sense to me.

    Even before Trump, I felt the primary should be qualification for the top two or three advances candidate. A separate winner takes all election would be held later. This should keep the race competitive for the second spot and incentivize quality candidates to compete as long as they can.

    Just a thought.

  21. here’s a little tidbit of data for you Trumpkins; the yacht Ivanka is vacationing on in the med is owned by David Geffen of Hollywood,a lifelong,diehard DemocRAT.
    draw your own inferences.

  22. Observe that the writer refers to nonreligious intellectuals as “liberals”, just like the NSDAP before and the Republicans after the 1932 election that rejected methodist/mohammedan prohibition and fanatical Blue Laws.
