A pejorative term for political progressives, typically deployed by political tribalists who would prefer not to engage in substantive discussion.
Progressive: "I think a Tobin tax would raise significant revenues while also having the salutary effect of dis-incentivizing rampant unproductive financial speculation."
Political Tribalist: "F- You you proggie....always want something for NOTHING....why don't you get a life proggie??....sitting in your mom's basement.....HA!"
Anarchist: "You know, I think the progressives are wrong, dude, but why are you being such a douchebag?"
Conservative: "Yeah, I don't really think you're adding much to the discussion, Tribalist."
Political Tribalist: "Whatever, you proggie idiots...Why don't you go whining to your proggie mamas?...I WIN!"
Everybody: "Sigh, ok, whatever dude."
