Perniciously prevalent

I've never heard of it before, hesperophobia. I find that odd as the condition is so perniciously prevalent. From Urban Dictionary:

Fear or hatred of the West.

The word Hesperophobia was coined by political scientist Robert Conquest. Its roots are the Greek words hesperos, which means “the west” and phobos, which means “fear,” but which when used as an English suffix can also carry the meaning “hate”.
