Trigger the Libs is a phrase used by some conservatives and the Alt-right with regards to actions taken specifically to upset, or trigger, liberals. The phrase has been used sarcastically by the left to make fun of right-wingers who use the phrase when they do something silly and debasing in the hopes of making a political point. It can be expressed in various permutations such as ?owning the libs,? ?owning snowflakes,? etc.
