Conservatard

Pronunciation [kuhn-sur-vuh-tahrd]

–noun.
1)A combination of the words conservative and retard. 2) See also: neoconservatard, fascist, dictator, monarch, pessimist, greedy, bully, tyrant and authoritarian.

A person who is politically conservative to an extreme degree, often with no sound intellectual basis for his or her beliefs. They will often espouse draconian and horrifying ideology that they hear the night before on Fox News channel.

Conservatards believe that loud volume, belligerence, and personal attacks trump logic and reasoning in any argument. In a conservatard’s eyes, logic and reasoning are used by communists and hippies to warp the minds of the innocent young, and therefore must be avoided at all costs.

When engaged in political discourse, conservatards change subjects often; preferring to point out unrelated (or even fabricated) examples of liberal folly rather than directly addressing the topic at hand. Some conservatards like to use large words like “misunderestimate” and “nukular” to impress others with their advanced grasp of English vocabulary, and by extension, their intelligence.

Conservatards generally have no concept of history, and in fact, may not even be able to read above a third grade level. Most of their belief structure is dictated to them by a television.

Dude, Bush is such a conservatard that he actually thinks that he runs the country instead of Cheney.

 

Libtard

Pronunciation [lib-tahrd]

-noun

Libtard. Combination of liberal and retard.

One of liberal political persuasion who wastes their entire lives bitching about president Bush/conservatives/Christianity, or hunting for an opportunity to do so. Often very loud, uninformed, and annoying. Makes the Democratic Party look bad. Usually found on college campuses.

The opposite of conservatard.

Dude, my professor is such a libtard. I mean, what does calculus have to do with the president?

Christofascist

Pronunciation  [kris-toh-fash-ist]

–noun
Christian religious extremist. Often a person who believes in forcing a right-wing Christian agenda on the rest of the world. Also known as a ‘fundamentalist’ or more recently ‘evangelical’.

Since many Christofascists bristle at the term ‘fundamentalist’ there has been a movement to get the media to refer to them as ‘evangelicals.’ However the term ‘evangelical’ is a misleading one as many Christian sects are evangelical in nature and not all evangelical Christians have such extremem views or political agendas. Christofascist is a more descriptive term for these right-wing extremists.

James Dobson’s Focus on the Family is a Christofascist hate group bent on banning abortion and opressing homosexuals.
