A Bleeding Heart Liberal may be defined as one who holds Liberal, Progressive or Democrat political views and who is extremely sympathetic toward people who suffer extreme hardships, disabilities or economic deprivations and who seek to help people such as those with what has been termed "Entitlement" programs like Social Security, Food Stamps and Aid To Dependent Children.

 

The term is sometimes used as a derogatory reference by some who embrace more or less eccentric or extremist ultra-conservative political views.
