People who act like sheep.

The general population who are scared and bleat when faced with anything that requires self sufficiency. They require a shepherd to ensure that they are kept warm, dumb and happy.

The eat up the spoon-fed media drivel. They don't think for themselves much. They aren't critical, skeptical or analytical.
They go along with the herd.

AKA lemmings (who will follow each other off a cliff to their death)

Sheep are stupid. Easy to herd.
People can be stupid and easy to herd.

These people are sheeple.

silly term, but a favorite of Idaho separatist-types

way overused here....frequently in a "holier than thou" sense

From analysis of George Orwels "Animal Farm"

"Sheep emerged as a faceless flock, bleating slogans as if repetition meant more than understanding."

And

"The Sheep. The sheep represent the most stupid elements of society. Their understanding of the aims of the revolution is limited to bleating out the slogan 'Four legs good, two legs bad.'' It must be noted that when Squealer wants to teach them the amended version it takes him a week to do so. This mindless support the pigs have is obviously harmful as they become unknowing tools of opression as each time a potential moment of protest comes up, their bleating prevents anyone else from being heard, thus stiffling any chances of free speach on the farm where supposedly ''All animals are equal.''

Wow, I've never heard it used by those types. Although, to be fair I haven't been around them much.

I've more heard it from the skeptical, well-read, Orwell-believing type.

Sheeple can also be found here at ARFcom - they mostly post in GD and mock the better prepared SF, until the SHTF anyway.

Then we get a lot of posts in the SF about wanting to get prepared, but 2 weeks later, its the same ol' shit.

I can' remember where I found this but here goes:

Sheeple - noun. People who are meek, easily persuaded, and tend to follow the crowd (sheep + people).

Sheeple say, "The government should do something about this!" when an hour of their own hard work could do more than an army of feds could ever hope to.

Sheeple say, "The government knows what is best for me. Even if it does override my rights as a citizen, the good of the many outweighs the good of the few." (Unless the "few" happen to be in congress.)

Sheeple think... No, wait.. Sheeple make an effort not to think. Sheeple feel. Logic, reason, cause and effect, consequence and forethought do not factor into the way sheeple operate. If it feels good, do it. If it feels bad, the government should have kept me from doing it in the first place.

Sheeple feel that you should embrace the way they live. Sheeple feel that you should also embrace living the way they think you should live.

Sheeple take what freedoms they have for granted. The fact that they didn't grow-up speaking German or Japanese or Russian doesn't present itself on their radar screen. America just "is" because we're so cool.

Sheeple know that taxes are good, especially if it is the rich who are getting taxed. Rich people just have too much money, and they should be helping people with it. Not enjoying the fruits of their own labor.

Sheeple "know" that: the cops will save them from the guy holding their eight-inch chef knife, even if it is 3am and their phone is sitting on the dresser... Behind him.

Sheeple will bunch up by the exit doors of any commercial building, waiting patiently for their turn to leave through the only door that is currently open. Never mind the fact that there are two sets of double doors with panic bars sitting unused. "They must be closed for a reason!"

Sheeple believe the evening news.

Sheeple believe that celebrity=intellect.

Sheeple like big cities because they are "Cultural Centers".

Sheeple don't mind roadblocks, strip searches, full-body x-ray machines or metal detectors, but heaven forbid any profiling should occur! Because sheeple know that everyone could be guilty of something.

Sheeple have come to understand that pornography is normal, but a bare-but toddler playing in a kiddy pool is criminal.

Sheeple hate home schooling because it doesn't properly indoctrinate, er, um, "acclimate" a child to society. Plus the fact! Who will teach those seven-year-olds how to use a condom! (Um... The seven year-olds father will. When he gets engaged.)

Sheeple will stop their car in the middle of an interstate to keep from hitting a duck that doesn't have the common sense to fly over the pavement. The fact (and suicidal danger) that their Geo Metro can stop twice as fast as the Suburban behind them doesn't override the need to protect our ecological diversity.

Sheeple gag at the thought of a mom breast-feeding her infant in public. But a thirteen year-old girl dressed like a prostitute is "chic" and "stylish".

Sheeple believe in the right to free speech, but avoid the right to thought. Your right to free speech, however, is free to be constrained by the sheeple if it contradicts their argument, or, if it offends them.

Sheeple know that university graduates are smarter than journeyman craftsmen.

Sheeple won't look you in the eye.

Sheeple don't understand the difference between movies and reality.

Lastly…

Sheeple willingly pay $3.50 for a cup of coffee and $2.50 for a finger size chocolate bar, but they scream about gasoline prices that go above $1.79 a gallon.

Sheeple depend on others for sustinance, shelter and protection.
Hence...Parasites who willingly do the bidding of politicians and other criminals.

Sheeple are members of the "herd" rather than "Individuals". They put state and community ahead of their family or themselves.

Just to add some more context:

Tribes

Orwell hardly makes one well-read. Didn't everyone have to read Animal Farm in the 10th grade?
