I would enjoy your discussions better if I knew what you're talking about.

There are two parts to that answer. In the late sixties, when construction workers and rednecks were iconic conservative archetypes, some of those guys thought beating up inoffensive longhairs was a sport, and patriotic to boot. They called that "punching hippies." The term was used as metaphor by a left-wing blogger last year, during the run-up to the election, to describe the Obama administration's arms-length relationship with the left, despite their support and ability to raise money for the Administration. The term seems to have caught on.
