I’ve been called a “cuck”, a “snowflake”, and just about any other insult the alt-right has conjured up. In case you didn’t know what a “cuck” is, it’s a man who gets off on watching his partner have sex with someone else because he can’t get the job done himself.
These insults are a metric shit ton of projection from the alt-right, or the new Neo-Nazis if we want to be accurate. Their fetish with cuckolding stems from their belief that white conservatives are becoming a minority in America, and only real Trump patriots are the alpha males who can lead this country, and keep their precious white women satisfied in bed. They’re both terrified and fascinated by the thought of interracial relationships, especially when it’s black male and a white female.
The demographic layout of the United States is changing. The white, conservative voting bloc is shrinking, even though they still turn out to vote more than anyone else. In my lifetime, America will become more multicultural than it has ever been before.
That doesn’t bother me at all, but some people, especially the alt-right are absolutely terrified by that reality.
By 2055, the U.S. will not have a single racial or ethnic majority. Much of this change has been (and will be) driven by immigration. Nearly 59 million immigrants have arrived in the U.S. in the past 50 years, mostly from Latin America and Asia. Today, a near-record 14% of the country’s population is foreign born compared with just 5% in 1965. Over the next five decades, the majority of U.S. population growth is projected to be linked to new Asian and Hispanic immigration. (Pew Research)
With the help of Russia and liberal apathy, this rage against a changing America is what helped put Trump in office. The alt-right doesn’t care what he does to this country, as long as it delays their loss of power.

I’m old enough to remember when simply being a white male automatically put you into the top tier for job considerations. I lived for years growing up in a county where there wasn’t a single black resident, and the locals would stare from their front porches when a black worker showed up with the state road work crew. 25 years ago, I had a mail carrier who loved that Virginia was recognizing MLK Day, and wished that 4 more black leaders would be shot so he could take the whole week off.
The alt-right movement under Steve Bannon and other white nationalists is another fading gasp of the dying far-right in this country. Their numbers continue to dwindle, even as their voices grow louder. As this base shrinks, their fervor grows stronger, like the buildup to an exploding star that has run its course.
The Republican Party is doing everything it can do delay this eventuality. They’re trying to purge voter rolls, close polling stations, and anything else possible to keep anyone other than their base from voting. They’re sandbagging the doors to the polls, but the rising tide will not be stopped.
