I would rather be a rebel than a Slave...Proud to be a Libtard
watched Question Time on Sunday afternoon. it was full of bald headed
kippers using words like Remoaners. They claimed they did not vote to
leave because they were racist but they never gave their reasons.
Each one mocked the idea that the issue was complex. They claimed the
remainers saw them as stupid and read the Sun yet not one provided a
complex, wide ranging arguement for their position. I am fed up with
one dimensional muppets...I am proud that they insult us, sneer
at us because our views are complex, tentative and developing. SO I
am setting up a RROUD TO BE A LIBTARD GROUP on Facebook. IWOULD
RATHER BE A REBEL THAN A SLAVE. Please support us..https://www.facebook.com/groups/1616845238617607/
remaining in the EU? Think we should show compassion to Syrian
refugees? Think benefit claimants shouldn't be demonised? If you've
expressed support for any of these views or any similar such things
on social media then like as not some bigot will have labelled you a
'libtard at some time or other.It's a decidedly unpleasant term
created by right wing conservatives to imply that liberally minded
people are of diminished intelligence. Well if being compassionate
and caring makes you a 'libtard' it's certainly not something to be
ashamed of - in fact we think we should wear it as a badge of honour,
We are libtards and we are proud.
1) Combination of the words Liberal and retard (see also: Libterd,
libturd, libnerd, libsurd, libdiot, libored) 2) The result when a
tree hugger successfully mates with a tree and the offspring is born
with an extra chromosome. 3) Any helpless society that must always be
liberated by the blood and sweat of others yet are too arrogant and
stupid to realize that they owe their entire existance to others.(see
also: French-tard, French-Tarded, Retarded-Frenchmen).
Hillary clinton and her husband, you know what's his face. You know
that libtard that got impeached for going down on that fat chick in
the beret that looked like Rosie Odonnel.
Look at that tall mongoloid with the vote Kerry T-shirt. Must be one
of them libtards.
topic arose in the comments to my
post last night that
took The New Yorker to task for publishing the sentence: "In
India, Hindu supremacists have adopted Rush Limbaugh’s favorite
epithet 'libtard' to channel righteous fury against liberal and
secular élites." In fact, Rush Limbaugh never says "libtard."
added: "'Libtard' is an offensive word, unnecessarily dragging
in disrespect for the mentally challenged." I have always heard
the word as a combination of "liberal" and "retard."
But in the comments, MadisonMan asked: "Does the 'tard' come
from retard, or bastard?" I think it's obvious: 1. "Retard"
is often shortened to just "'tard" and no one ever says
"'tard" to mean "bastard," and 2. The contempt
expressed in the use of the word seems to be about stupidity and not
[the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party's] dominance during this
election campaign has had unexpected benefits, including reviving the
belief that secularism is a value — even if it’s a value that
needs reviving, and redefining. In rambunctious Twitter arguments,
“sickular” is often used as a pejorative term, along with
“libtard,” a composite for “liberal bastard.” This language,
however extreme, is a sign that between the small but noisy groups of
Hindu supremacists and the small but equally vociferous groups of
committed left-liberals lies a vast middle ground.
don't know if that columnist got it right, and who knows how the word
"libtard" came into being in India? It didn't come from
Rush Limbaugh, but did it come from other Americans? If so, was the
"tard" misunderstood as connected to "bastard" or
was the NYT op-ed writer — Nilanjana S. Roy — just innocent of
the American word "tard" and making her own assumption? Roy
is a novelist born, educated, and living in India. She's not a good
source of the origin of the American epithet "libtard,"
which seems to have a life of its own in India.
media trolls with right wing Hindu leanings – characterised by
their vehement attacks on anyone opposing the Narendra Modi-led
government – have undoubtedly hogged the limelight this week. While
their attacks on people, who do not agree with them, have grown
unprecedentedly brazen, 'bhakts' also enjoy a new-found attention of
newspaper columnists, online commentators and prominent
director Vivek] Agnihotri wrote, "You call them Internet Hindus,
they call you Adarsh Liberals. You call them Bhakts, they call
youLibtards. You call them Sanghis, they call you AAPtards.
This new, emerging, virtual India is not taking it lying down like
their ancestors did."
the director misses is that while calling opponents Adarsh Liberals
or AAPtards (quite derogatory in itself, taking off from
'retard'), the trolls also heap slanderous abuses on them....
