Reactionary Justice Warrior (commonly abbreviated RJW) is a pejorative term for an individual promoting reactionary white nationalist, alt-right and neo-fascist views, including right-wing identity politics, conservatism, the alt-right, white nationalist, neo-nazism etc. The accusation of being an RJW carries implications of pursuing neo-reactionary ideas and returning society to the status quo ante, the previous political state of state of society which they believe possessed characteristics (discipline, respect for authority, etc.) that are negatively absent from the contemporary status quo of a society. They are staunch proponents of the white genocide conspiracy theory and think men and white people are under threat and are often seen as victims. They frequently blame immigrants, minorities, gay people, transgenders and atheists for society's ills, using Scapegoat|scapegoats is their standard M.O. This type of ideology thrives off of fear-mongering, fear-tactics, and paranoia. Holocaust Denial is common among reactionary justice warriors and alt-righters alike.

The phrase originated on /leftypol/ board (leftist politically incorrect) on the image board site 8chan and other left-wing political circles. The negative connotation gained increased use, and was particularly aimed at those espousing views adhering to reactionary ideals such as conservatism, the alt-right, masculism, white nationalism, and neo-fascism as well as views deemed to be right-wing politically correct.
