I want to start off this article with a tribute to the lowly Southern pine beetle.
Around the fringes of our property, we have some pine trees in the woods which have been slowly killed off by these pine beetles. The dead trees can remain standing for months, even years, until one day they are knocked over in the night by the wind in a strong thunderstorm. It happens all the time around here.
The point here is that you never know when nature will take its course and these dead, rotten trees will fall to earth, but it is inevitable. You can’t predict when the strong blast of wind will come that will knock them down, when they will “collapse” under their own weight, but you know it is going to happen, eventually.
With this in mind, #cuckservative made its debut in The New York Times this morning:
“As Republican presidential candidates offered careful answers to questions about education, immigration and foreign policy at last week’s debate, streams of tweets panned their responses as too soft or disingenuous. Senator Marco Rubio is beholden to corporate interests, one said. Former Gov. Jeb Bush is weak on immigration, crowed another. Many of them were adorned with a cryptic hashtag bearing a new word: “cuckservative.”
The phrase has caught on among a segment of disaffected Republicans, some of whom hold white nationalist ideologies and who feel many of the party’s presidential candidates are not conservative enough. And they are frustrated by the willingness of Republicans in general to compromise on a variety of issues, like spending or the Confederate battle flag, or they accuse them of being beholden to their donors. …”
By itself, this story would indicate nothing but a popular new hashtag on Twitter, but consider the context:

The cucks and the neocons huffed, and they puffed, and they BLEW THEMSELVES DOWN! It’s an amazing moment in American politics.
Who do the cuckservatives think they are fooling, seriously? Are they attacking their champion Rubio for pushing amnesty through the Senate? How about Scott Walker who supported amnesty for a decade? Are they attacking Kasich for his blatant attempt to cuck the conservative base on gay marriage? Are they attacking ¡Jeb! who is still even today pushing amnesty in the primary? How about their current heartthrob Dr. Ben Carson who, it was revealed today, experimented on aborted babies?
The whole flock of cuckservatives are lashing out wildly at Donald Trump. The only reason they would react in such a way to a candidate is if they perceived a threat to their own power. They can feel their own power and influence slipping away. Having lost all credibility and legitimacy, they are as DEAD as those trees in my backyard, and they fear The Donald is strong enough to blow them down.
