Glorious

To alt-righties, this appears to be the superlative of adjectives, applied to many things other than the term cuckservative, harkening back to the rhetoric of the Third Reich. (In the book Catastrophe and Meaning: The Holocaust and the Twentieth Century, authors Moishe Postone and Eric L. Santner trace the evolution of the term “glory” from the World War I appellation “fields of glory” to its use by Nazis in describing the mass murder of Jews in World War II.)

The Daily Stormer website routinely refers to Trump as “Our Glorious Leader,” as in the post, "Our Glorious Leader Calls for a Ban on All Moslems," and “Glorious Leader Donald Trump Refuses to Denounce Daily Stormer Troll Army,” a reference to the antisemitic trolling of GQ writer Julia Ioffe after she wrote an article on Trump’s wife, Melania. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Trump declined to renounce the trolling, which included death threats.

Twitter user @_AltRight_ insists that Trump’s #DeportationForce will be “glorious.” In fact, there’s a whole lotta "glorious” ugliness in her Twitter feed.
