regressive
 n.Note: Coined as an antonym to “progressive.” «Regressives like to call people like me Bush-haters, and so it is important to address that claim before proceeding, because the entire intent of hurling that label at the president’s critics is to undermine their credibility. If you simply hate the man, they imply, you’re not rational, and your critiques can be dismissed. But it isn’t that simple—not by a long shot. First, it should be noted that the regressive right is far wider a phenomenon than just one person.» —“You’re Damn Right I’m Angry. Why Isn’t Everybody?” by David Michael Green OpEdNews.com Dec. 27, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
