As very successful fake pundit Carl Diggler foretold, it was only a matter of time before some official voice of the #NeverTrump movement naïvely embraced the term “cuck.” Well, Internet, that blessed day has arrived.
“Cuck” and “cuckservative” have wafted up from the raging scrapyard/tire-fire of the Internet’s alt-right movement to become the favorite insult of certain white-supremacist Trump supporters. “Cuck,” short for cuckold, is a term piled high with racial and sexual implications: In the porn world, a cuck is a weak, “beta,” white husband who lets black men have sex with his wife. In far-right politics, anyone who’d vote for a candidate espousing less racial hatred than Trump is definitely a cuck—a “traitor to the white race.”
Stop Trump PAC is a political action committee that has filed with the FEC, but according to the latest available records, is still awaiting that approval. For now, though, it has a very vocal anti-Trump Twitter account.
Whoever runs the account correctly intuited that cuck was a derogatory term used by some Trump supporters, and that it had something to do with a fear or dislike of non-whites. They apparently didn’t look into the context, though, so now we’ve got… this:
The “PROUD #CUCKS” deleted the tweet after it started to go viral, but the evidence persists in Google results and in screenshots. It was a real, and apparently honest, mistake.
This election continues to be extremely weird, and there are 180 days of it left. Stay proud and cucky out there, America.
