Slacktivists are people who participate in tweetstorms (online) or stand outside in the streets and parks (IRL) screaming for change. These people think they can change the world by holding up cardboard signs. Slacktivism has as much chance of changing Wall Street's ways with Occupy and Anonymous signs as professional wrestling fans do of convincing the general public to "Vote -4- The Rock."
These dirty slacktivists are making it harder for me to do my grocery shopping.

Did you hear the government stopped being corrupt because 500 people RT'd some slacktivism tweet by @YourAnonNews?

Those that believe they deserve what they get because they β€œshowed up”. What, earn a living by working hard, not me!
I hired a couple of slacktivists and and now I cannot fire them without a boatload of "write ups." Gotta prove they are worthless. Come see me in my office. What? Where are HR? Yeah so they can coddle your lazy ass and make it impossible to get rid of you. Pinhead!
