A torture advocate, neocon or Republican who encourages torture as a solution to the "ticking timebomb" problem. An idea most often advanced by fat, middle-aged, chickenhawks, armchair warriors and christians.
Ex-Vice President Richard Cheney is a torturist. The radical right are often torturists for wanting to continue the policies of President Bush toward captives such as water-boarding, genital electrocution, nude exposure to temperature extremes, humiliation, religous insult, isolation, sensory deprivation, insertion of foreign objects in the anus of male captives, rape, sensory overload, sleep deprivation. Singly and in conjunction in no secial, in fact random, order to keep the torturee off balance.
