Top Definition
A baton liberal is a person who claims to follow the ideals of liberalism, but whose actual political ideas seem to be closer to conservatism.

The distinguishing characteristic of a baton liberal is that they want to illegalise just about everything. Movies, video games, tv-shows, martial arts, pre-marital sex - you name it. They are also more often than not overly positive about the police force and all of their policies on judicial matters reflect this.

They bear some resemblance to what people in the US refer to as neocons, and like neocons they are at their core just a bunch of populists.
That guy is such a baton liberal. All he ever talks about is making the police force bigger and extending prison terms.
