Slacker with a cause, usually traveling in a quaint vehicle plastered with bumper stickers like "NO BLOOD FOR OIL," "REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS FOR ALL," and "SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PETS." Singularly unaware of irony and how stupid people look in knit rasta caps. While generally a conspiracy theorist, the activist often believes in the inherent goodness of mankind and will beat the shit out of her/his domestic partner for thinking differently.
Look at that activist smacking her husband after the peace rally.

Fascist nosy busy-body that is more worried about everyone else around them, rather than just focusing on the problems in their own life. Generally tends to delude themselves into thinking they're saving the world.

a rich kid or person who thinks he cares about people, but in a few years he will be making money off of mommy and daddys trust fund money. These people claim they know all about tibet, but don't know what the people in their suburban town are like.

Are often blindly left and focus on stupid issues rather than domestic issues. They often live in gentrified communities and hate anything remotely American. They also hate people who spend money for destroying the world. But they are like everyone else.
"That activist is a revolutionary against mommy and daddys money. He went to college a few months and thinks he knows everything. Yeah right"
