Social justice warrior (SJW) – a pejorative term for an individual who promotes socially progressive views such as multiculturalism, feminism or civil rights, but desiring personal validation rather than holding deeper convictions about it…

A term appeared in the late 20th century, with a neutral or positive meaning describing people engaged in social justice activism. When in 2011, the term appeared on Twitter its meaning was changed from an originally positive to an extremely negative one.

Brigade

Brigade – in a pejorative meaning, a word is used to describe an informal group of individuals with the same views with which the speaker disagrees, implying slight dislike or contempt for the group.
