“I hate conservatives but I really fucking hate liberals”.

—Matt Stone

Libtard /ˈlɪbtɑːd/ ~ portmanteau of “liberal” and “retard” (n.)

An excellent name for we paid-up members of the metropolitan liberal elite — and if you are reading this, I’m afraid that most certainly means you, dear friend, for we who have truck with the world of financial services are, by self-identification, libtards[1] — because those most discomfited by the label are those who most deserve it, tweaking as it perfectly does every righteous, passive aggressive nerve in their right-minded psyche.

And before you ask — for the avoidance of doubt, should the first person plural above have not been enough to get you across the line — yes, the JC suppose he probably is a libtard.

As he was mowing his small patch of communally-owned, non-capitalist-means-of-production land this morning (with a hand-held sickle and a hammer, naturally) it occurred to the old goat that there might be a distinction between normal liberals and “libtards”, which might release him from that stigma: Libtards are liberals because they think they do know what’s best for everyone else. Normal liberals are liberals because they are pretty sure they don’t.
