The construction of rhetoric

In last night's Darkstream, I noted that the most effective rhetoric tends to have something in common: it is based on mocking an aspect of the target's self-identification.

For example, the reason Social Justice Warrior is effective rhetoric that triggers the emotions of SJWs while derogatory terms like Social Justice Bully and Social Justice Crybaby do not is because "warrior" is a term that the SJWs gave themselves, and more importantly, it is how they see themselves. To hear the term used contemptuously, as an open form of mockery, is what causes the emotional pain that triggers them.

Fake News, which is arguably the most effective rhetorical term ever deployed against the media, is almost exactly the same. It is a term originally coined by the media, but stolen and deployed against them, and one that strikes at the very heart of their self-value and self-identification as devotees of truth and accuracy.

So, as an exercise, let's see if anyone can utilize this principle to come up with a rhetorical term for moderates that would serve as an alternative to Cuckservative, which is itself already an effective tag that is a play on a self-title rather than an actual one, but nevertheless strikes powerfully at the conservative's self-image as loyal and moral.

Principled compromisers might work.

It combines two contradictory parts of the cuckservative's self image. That is that he's staunchly principled (but only against the right) and that he's a realistic dealmaker valuing real polictics (but only to the left).

How about "The Concerned Centrist".

If there is one word I read regularly from moderates is "concern." Concern that Trump's tweets are coarsening the discourse in America. Concerned about the tone in Washington. Concerned about literally everything that gives them uncomfortable feelz or makes them look like mean people by association. They might actually prefer a more conservative (or alt right or whatever) policy but always seem willing to concede a center "fair" position out of concern for Reasons.

All these suggestions suck. I doubt we can really come up with a good rhetoric shiv that even gets close to 'cuck'.

You are all thinking about it wrong. Its like calling someone names in school. You need something that gets under their skin, that gets in their head, that picks up on their insecurities.

Rhetoric is emotional. Mock them, anger them, humiliate them.

A well deployed rhetorical shiv should make their head explode.

"You are holding your daughter out as rape meat so the left won't call you racist" is going to make a cuck angry. Calling him a Conservitard is not going to make him angry.

I don't know Vox's purpose in asking for an alternative to cuck but I don't believe we will find a single word that will have such an impact.

To me it seems that moderates will agree with anything that allows their major assets to continue to increase in value, i.e housing and stock market. Therefore effective rhetoric needs to be directed towards their ability to loosen their morals to protect their portfolios.

I think some people misunderstood him there (or I did). We don't need an alternative word for cuckservatives, because you can't improve on perfection. But "cuckservative" doesn't work on moderates, because they don't identify as conservative in the first place, so we need a separate term for them that works like "cuckservative."

Thread had me facepalming before Cail Coroshov's explanation. Y'all seem to have the idea now, though no clear killshot yet.

'The respectables' is quite good. It's how they see themselves - as nobly standing above the fray. But it lacks stickiness as it's not something they explicitly use to describe themselves as a matter of course.

A 'timid patriot' angle could work. As could 'global patriot,' as it's absurd.

A possible angle is how they see themselves as rule-keepers, above the partisan fray. Referees.

Hmm. Colorblind conservative.

is a term that the SJWs gave themselves, and more importantly, it is how they see themselves. To hear the term used contemptuously, as an open form of mockery, is what causes the emotional pain that triggers them.

In that line another example would be strong independent womyn for feminists. This is how they see themselves and they get triggered hard if you mock them as either strong or independent. Same goes for their silly pronouns. Xer, Xir, Xis and what not.


Defenders of Virtue and Enlightenment could work. Those are all attributes they like and see themselves as. The noble defender of the constitution, the defender of all that is good and just. Virtue and Moral they place highly. And the feel enlightened, above the plebs who aren't color blind or able to go past they emotions. And in really they are none of all that. They haven't defended shit. Their Virtue amounts to virtue signaling and nothing else. And they are about as enlightened as liberals. To top it of the short version is Dove, given they see themselves as brave Hawks who police the world that results in another emotional turmoil since they want to embrace the long version, but hate the short version.

It's easier to capture their weakness than to target their self-image of being loyal/moral, while still keeping things snappy, simple and playful.

How about...

Or, a variation that adds a nuance of being old and/or out of touch to the weakness:

Dodderates

These have the benefit of being non-sexual and close in pronunciation to the target term.

For something more pointed and sexual, CentraJerk is an idea. However, I like the first two better, as you could use them on anyone and anywhere, while the last one might not feel right for some people or situations.

I'm reminded of the term "homosexual", which is now verboten in bien-pensant circles because it was adopted in the 90s by the Christian Right. Originally neutral and bland in tone, it was given by them a tinge of faint, clinical contempt; like a lab tech carefully donning mask and gloves to pick up a feces sample.

You can force the adoption of various forms of language by various methods, but contempt is forever. Cops call you "sir" and obviously mean "a$$hole", and I've heard an old Marine talking about "African-American ingenuity" in tones of ironic contempt that'd curl your wig.

#FakeNews sees the arbiter arbited against, and this also offends their self-image. Not merely for the accusation but the effrontery of the passive consumer (as they see our role) usurping the prerogatives of his superiors.

It adds injury to insult, perhaps.

They use "extremist" as an insult because they fear it being used on them, so a variation on that could work:

Centremist

I hope someone can find a term/meme build on what Trump did to McCain, and Vox rightly pointed out, the best mocking involves going after how people self identify. Moderates are POW's to the left. They'd fly that POW flag proudly in their front yard if they thought they could away with it. They peer out their window like Mrs Kravitz at all the nasty things going on in the world, but will buy all the chocolate covered phallus cookies the gender scouts peddle at their door, just to be seen as tolerant.

The neocons are the capos in service to the Left: they oversee the conned right keeping them under control; the capos were predominantly Jewish Communists who chose to be prisoner supervisors in order to be the last killed. That is who they are; but that is dialectic.

The word "cuck" is earthy, sexual, strikes at every married man's fear, and makes him an object of whispered gossip ridicule.

Conservatism now enables homosexuality, transgenderism, and feminism; very well find a term that ties them to the masochist position under a dominatrix, a term that ties them to the BDSM couples seen at LGBT Pride parades.
I can visualize the various cartoons that can be done: leathered up, bound, collared and on a leash, with a bow-tie, and being lead by his leathered up dominatrix.; but I cannot determine the derogatory name.

The best ones I've seen so far are "Centerfolds" and "Nonservative".

For my submission, I suggest the Old Guard. To their minds, they're the ones preserving and defending the way things were, keeping up tradition, doin' it old school. To our minds, of course, they're the old security guard who slept while thieves stole everything that wasn't nailed down and half of what was.

Really, that's the great charge against them: they had a magnificent legacy to guard, and they accepted that challenge, and they failed miserably. And here we are.

How about neuteral? Although I do like “basket of respectables” or just respectables, since the only thing they care about conserving is their reputation. Hence the virtue signaling and concern over Trump’s attitude. And that is how they see themselves.

If we're going after moderates and we're looking for nuclear class, the killshot is based around being pro-Rape. Rape & being Hilter are the only "sins" they all agree upon.

Paki apologists. They have to object because it's rayciss, but then that would confirm it.

What year did they set a record? 1972? They basically celebrated the birth of their country with the mass rape of as many Hindu women as they could get their hands on. IIRC it ended up in the seven figures, but you'll never hear a True Conservative call Pakis the worst people in the world. Even though they are.

Whatever the next rhetorical kill shot will be, I think it will have something to do with fear of being called racist. I've been trying to think of something for weeks, but can't come up with anything pithy enough.

Anti-moderate rhetoric would be especially effective if even liberals could have fun mocking them with it. The cucks would die inside if they were getting hit from both their left and right.
