"cyclepathic", "cycle logical"

Is there anyone actually in the BNP apart from hard left infiltrators trying to create the impression it’s full of cyclepathic thugs like them?

Unitarists believe that people who oppose them have cyclepathic tendancies, that when people do not agree with them “what we have here is a failure to communicate”...

It’s all cycle logical really, if you can’t get it, you want it more!
discussion thread

Most examples of “cyclepathic” or “cycle logical” I found were puns (names of bicycle shops, etc.). The pronunciation similarity with “psychopathic” and “psychological”, respectively, is obvious. As far as a possible eggcornish meaning connection goes—well, some psychological conditions are cyclical in nature, such as Bipolar Disorder. There’s even a form of Bipolar Disorder that used to be called Cyclothymia. Even the alternation of psychotic episodes with more normal states of mind in illnesses such as Schizophrenia might cause someone to confuse “cycle” with “psycho-”. So, maybe an eggcorn in a few cases. (Searching for “cycle therapy” and “cycle analysis” yielded no eggcornish examples, though my searches weren’t exhaustive.)
