Person 2: Yeah, I know. Yesterday he answered 208 questions on yahoo, then searched Wikipedia to see if anyone fucked with Obama's page.

A term used to describe a person who acts like an activist, but from a metaphorical armchair — i.e., from a mostly or totally inactive, theoretical position.

Inherent in the meaning of armchair revolutionary is the idea that the person knows that their ideas require them to be physically involved in political struggles, but that instead the person chooses to be intentionally ignorant or dismissive of real-world issues and problems, in an attempt to continue believing in the false reality their views create. In this way the armchair revolutionary is often regarded to see the world in at least a quasi-idealist manner, i.e., one relative solely to his or her own perceptions, rather than bothering with what s/he should really do — to absorb the physical and practical reality s/he would be compelled to see around him/her if s/he stopped the alleged "political posturing" and became an activist in actual political causes

Free speech applies to everyone not just conservatives.
Freedom of religion applies to everyone not just Christians.
The "Equal Protection" clause of the 14th amendment applies to everyone not just white male heterosexual Christians. When courts make rulings acknowledging these simple truths Republicans call them activist judges.

A person who posts and reposts memes everyday on Facebook and Twitter hoping to get a rise out of people and change their political stances and/or religious views. These people rarley if never go outside of their homes and do any real activism such as collecting names for a petition, holding signs, occupying spaces to make statements, majoring in politics in college and actually proposing or changing laws. They usually are just bummed out with the way things are going in life because their lack of work ethic, self sacrifice, and overall poor life decisions have led them to feel as though someone else is to blame and the best way they can get back at them is to post a meme on Facebook.
Dude, everyday this meme activist posts another shitty meme thinking it'll lead to some real change in the world. I wonder what he does for a living? Is he contributing to anything at all in society?
