Someone holding “left” political-economic views (e.g. anti-capitalist, socialist, anarchist...).

Leftist views often critique capitalist markets as being wholly insufficient in satisfying human rights and desires.
While mainstream politics have largely accepted Reagan-era “trickle down” economic theory, the leftists continue to reject this outright. Leftist maintain that capitalist profit is always created through the extortion of labor, “Money doesn’t trickle down. It’s soaked upward through low wages and a system hat prioritizes profit over people.”

A self righteous, Christian hating, Muslim loving, self mutilating, censor happy hypocrite.

Claim to be the "resistance" when they'll cancel you on Twitter in a whim.

Claim to be "unheard" when they'll flock you in seconds, and have owned MSM for over a century.

Claim to be "acceptance" when they're quick to belittle and demonize you for having the "wrong" opinion, or just for being straight/male/white.

Dwell in echo chambers like urban dictionary while deleting truthful definitions.
Just like Twitter, 99% of Urban Dictionary users are liberal leftists.

Usually lacking the ability to critically think. Easily manipulated due to uninformed idiocy and an extreme case of sheep mentality. Most often found in large numbers in democrat ran cities. Their lack of logic and rationale is best defined by their habit of screaming unhinged rants that make no sense at all and avoidance of actual facts. Also prone to believe in Darwinism and a large desire for communism
She is very dumb. I bet she is a leftist
Get the Leftist mug.
Another word for hypocrite. Examples include woke college students raging against capitalism with a smart phone in one hand and a Starbucks latte in the other. Limousine liberal famous actors lecturing the public about climate change and inequality while traveling the world on private jets and hoarding their wealth in overseas tax shelters. Leftist college professors who shame their students with accusations of white privilege but live in snow white suburbs and send their kids to snow white school districts. Western feminists and LGBTQ activists who stand ready to burn down a local Christian bakery but don’t seem to give a shit when oppressed women and LGBTQ people are imprisoned, raped or lynched in Muslim majority countries around the world. The list is endless
