Dictocrat (dictator + bureaucrat)

A “dictocrat” (dictator + bureaucrat) is a term that dates in print to at least 1933 and 1940, during the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The word is often used in nutrition, with government “diet dictocrats” forming a “food police.”


Urban Dictionary
Dictocrat
Formerly known as neo-con.
An unambivalent follower of the administration of George W. Bush. Usually found in fundamentalist or evangelist churches or any extreme right leaning religious organization. Also found at all events that involve guns or anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-anything gatherings. If it involves the oppression of any form of human rights, that’s where you will be sure find them in highest concentrations.
Bush and his Dictocrats are planning on suspending the Constitution, the 2004 election and our democracy under his new War Powers and Anti-terrorism act.
