Damnocracy (damn + democracy); Damnocrat (damn + Democrat)

"Damnocracy” (damn + democracy) and “Damnocrat” (damn + Democrat) are terms used by people who believe that democracy or Democrats are damnable. “Damnocrat” has been cited in print since at least 1901 and “damnocracy” has been cited in print since at least 1954, but the terms have been used more frequently in the 2000s with the growth of political blogs.
