"Conservatard” (conservative + retard) is an epithet used by some on the political left against the political right. “Conservatard” has been cited in print since November 2005. The term can be upper case (Conservatard) or lower case (conservatard).
Similar terms include “sheeptard” (since March 1999), “Republitard” (since April 2002), “rightard” (since January 2003), “patriotard” (since April 2003), “Demotard” (since July 2003), “leftard” (since August 2004). “libtard” (since July 2004), “libertard” (since February 2004), “GOP tard"/"GOPtard” (since July 2004), “wingtard” (since October 2004), “neotard” (since May 2002), “ecotard” (since July 2007), “climatard” (since December 2008), “teatard” (since March 2009), “crumbtard” (since May 2011) and “occutard” (since October 2011).
A person who is politically conservative to an extreme degree, often with no sound intellectual basis for his or her beliefs.
Conservatards believe that loud volume, beligerence, and personal attacks trump logic and reasoning in any argument. In a conservatard’s eyes, logic and reasoning are used by communists and hippies to warp the minds of the innocent young, and therefore must be avoided at all costs.
When engaged in political discourse, conservatards change subjects often; preferring to point out unrelated (or even fabricated) examples of liberal folly rather than directly addressing the topic at hand. Some conservatards like to use large words like “misunderestimate” and “nukular” to impress others with their advanced grasp of English vocabulary, and by extension, their intelligence.
Conservatards generally have no concept of history, and in fact, may not even be able to read above a third grade level. Most of their belief structure is dictated to them by a television.
With its recent ruling requiring intelligent design to be taught in schools, Kansas has become the nation’s conservatard capitol.

By the way, your post refers to me as a “conservatard,” then quotes Hitler as to how Nazis must make “even adversaries far removed from one another seem to belong to a single category.” Well done!

What is a Conservatard?
2006 July 19
by Mr. Conservatard
To start things off correctly I should explain the Title of this Blog. I learned the term “Conservatard” from a co-worker. I had not heard it used before and frankly I was a little offended at first. Mind you I was not offended by the conservative part of the word, but the “tard” short hand for “retarded” part of the word. I didn’t feel it was fair to shame people who are mentally disabled due to a genetic trait. I especially didn’t fill it was fair to hitch the stigma of being a conservative to mentally disabled people.

Typical conservatard talking points.

Are you delirious or just another conservatard smear machine? Gore flies commercial and doesn’t have a private jet. Is everyone that threatens your ideology “mentally Messed up?” Educate yourself and find out that Gore makes nothing from Live Earth. Sad that you call concert-goers that want to help the environment “hippies, junkies, and celebrities.” Sad but expected from conservatard smear machines.
