A term to describe a person who commits the act of bootlicking. The act of bootlicking is when an oppressed person or persons, such as the working class, sucks up to the oppressor in hopes of appeasing them.

The reason it is referred to at "bootlicking" is because the oppressor metaphorically has a boot over the face or neck of the oppressed, suffocating them, and the oppressed licks it in an attempt to dissuade the oppressor.
"Elon Musk is just a cool rich guy who worked really hard for his money because he's a super big brain mega genius! He's not an exploiter of the working class! Did I mention I make 8 dollars an hour for a 7 hour shift with no benefits?"
