Originally used to describe the original members of the Nazi Party who would wear brown uniforms to meetings and events before Hitler came to power.

Now used as a derogatory term for police, FBI or other law enforcement agents or anyone in authority.

The new uniform of the Republican party. Wearers of this uniform tend to also be jack boot wearing thugs.
Brown shirt Republicans are a collection of goons who cannot stand things like civil rights. These people tend to think that they are better and holier than everyone else.

What the Republicans have turned themselves into. Especially at the lower level, brown shirts are a collection of thugs who get quite annoyed at those who oppose monkey boy.
New brown shirts accuse those who don't like monkey boy of everything, from causing bad hair days to treason.
