2.
An idealistic, supposedly liberal political party that alienates all moderates with its stubbornness, hence a jackass as the mascot.

For example, many moderate liberals find themselves alienated by the extreme liberals' insistence on political correctness and intolerance to religion.

As one party in the two-party system in America, they are half of the problem.

Antonym: Republican

The political party opposite the Republican party. Their beliefs are that everyone should live on welfare, and no one should be too rich. That it's OK to kill innocent unborn children, but killing serial killers is bad. And that Socialism is OK, as long as you call it "change." Their mascot is a donkey, and it suits them.
He's a democrat. He thinks everyone should be the working class, even though they rightfully earn their money
