"Neotard” (neoconservative + retard) is an epithet used by some against neoconservatives or “neocons.” “Neotard” has been cited in print since at least May 2002 and was used frequently in the U.S. presidential election year of 2004. The name “neotard” sounds similar to the word “leotard,” as a few bloggers have noticed.
Similar terms include “sheeptard” (since March 1999), “Republitard” (since April 2002), “rightard” (since January 2003), “patriotard” (since April 2003), “Demotard” (since July 2003), “GOP tard"/"GOPtard” (since July 2004), “leftard” (since August 2004), “libtard” (since July 2004), “libertard” (since September 2001), “conservatard” (since November 2005), “wingtard” (since October 2004), “truthtard” (since October 2006), “ecotard” (since July 2007), “climatard” (since December 2008), “teatard” (since March 2009), “crumbtard” (since May 2011) and “occutard” (since October 2011).
(Neo-Tard)—a contraction of the term Neoconservative and Retard.
A neo-tard is someone who believes in neoconservative principles while not understanding how stupid they are, that he will never personally benefit from these policies, and that said policies may, in fact, lead to his poverty and/or untimely demise.
Traits include a blind support for:
* American Military and Economic Imperialism, without adequate border security.
* Republican Presidential Infallability
* Simultaneous support for low taxes (for the wealthy) and high government spending (for military and corporate welfare at least).
A neotard is also typically unable to offer clear intellectual arguments for his positions, instead relying on catchy but meaningless phrases like, “they’ll follow us home,” or “don’t cut and run,” or “die in a fire, you commie libtard!”
As such, they generally lose debates and run away, only to attack another day.
George Bush is a neotard, especially given his belief in his own Presidential Infallability and in policies that fail, no matter how stupid or disproved.
Bill Kristol is not a neotard, because he simply misleads the public to promote his neocon policies.
Anyone who believes Bill Kristol, however, is a neo-tard, because Bill Kristol is always wrong.
Dick Cheney is also not a neotard for similar reasons. He is simply a crook (see “crook").

Where do these ignorant rightwards and neotards come from. Hitler invaded the USSR, a socialist country. Only a fascist country would invade a socialist country.

And you probably have already read the thread, slimetard. And you probably don’t care what the truth really is, because you’re a Neotard, and you prefer lies.
