Cuckservative is a portmanteau of the words "cuck" (which means a weak person) and "conservative." It originated as a pejorative term in online political discussions, particularly within alt-right circles, and gained some prominence during the 2016 presidential election.

It is often employed to label conservatives who are seen as too moderate, willing to compromise with liberals, or not adhering to a strict, uncompromising ideological stance. For example:
  • "I can't believe that cuckservative senator voted in favor of that liberal agenda. He's not a true conservative."
  • "The party needs to purge all the cuckservative who are watering down our principles."
  • "It's disappointing to see some conservatives labeled as cuckservative just because they're willing to find common ground with the other side."
