Quote# 8024

Having spent several tours of duty on liberal forums (in the spirit of JFK’s mission to enlighten the underdeveloped, uneducated and stupid peoples of our planet) I have come away with valuable insight into how liberals actually “think” (here I use the term THINK liberally).

One point of contention was the term “elitist”. To a liberal the term elitist refers to one typically with an Ivy League education who by virtue of their command of a particular subject matter is especially qualified to set policy decisions that affect a “desirable outcome” to a “social challenge” for the “greater good” of the unwashed NASCAR masses.

I offered up my own definition of the term, which by the way, got me banned from three liberal forums all on the same day:

Elitist – A pretentious, quixotic, arrogant, overbearing, overreaching, self-appointed, self-righteous, self-important pin-head liberal sycophant partisan hack that believes they have been chosen judge, jury, enforcer and executioner to decide for the rest of us how to live, love, marry, think, learn, pray, worship, vote, speak, eat, smoke, drive, spend, conserve, work, play, hunt, procreate and die.

This of course did not go over very well with the libs who hold elitist in high esteem as the arbiters of social conscious and as crucial advisors on social policy.

I just wonder if my definition is incomplete??

Not a very good definition of \"elitist\" - though (aside from the word \"liberal\") an astoundingly good definition of \"Christian fundamentalist\".

Actually, this whole post is a very good definition of \"irony.\"

'Enlighten'? I call bullshit. This guy went over there to troll and he knows it.

Troll, yep.

Best troll I ever did was in a Vegan chatroom. I told them that my girlfriend was Vegan and that she refused to swallow because it was animal protein and was against her beliefs.

Heh ... they atually took it seriously, didn't recognize it as a troll.

Apparently the web sites that he went to were more perceptive than the Vegans were.

Jesse, that's classic! I'll have to use it next time my ex-roommates vegan friend comes to town. :-D

This one should have been a contender for a Mirror Award. Crosis, your response is spot on.

Did the guy claim to be a fundimentalist christian? This one isn't setting off my fundie detector.

"Elitism", like many other fundy favorites, is a codeword. People who prefer to be educated and live a cosmopolitan existence are considered "elitist" because they look down on xenophobes and the willfully ignorant. In reality it's pretty much the same thing as the "big words" argument -- they'd rather wallow in the gutter than see what's up on the sidewalk.

Which is not to say some of us lefties can't be elitist, but it mostly comes from listening to ignorant twits like this and making hasty generalizations about all of "them". (Let's put it this way: there's a difference between having a "living out in the sticks" lifestyle and being a redneck. Farmers and outdoors lovers live out in the sticks; rednecks do too, but they also play with snakes, beat up gays and blacks, and try to hydroplane snowmobiles. (Okay, that's mostly a Wisconsin/Minnesota/Michigan redneck thing, but you get the idea.)

There's nothing wrong with living out in the sticks; some people prefer that. But when you use it as an excuse to be an ignorant moron, you're a redneck, and you deserve to be looked down on.

You elitists just don't understand. Rednecks are PROUD of their ignorance. Besides, I never heard an elitist who could pronounce the word "hat" using as many syllables as they do!

Wow, I am SO reassured to know that conservatives don't want to tell people how to live, love, and marry. I thought I had noticed a tiny bit of persecution of gays recently.

Elitism is nothing more than the substantiated fact that I am better than you, because I can Haiku and you can't.

BTW, in your snarky little missive, you defined 'megalomaniac' fairly well, not 'elitist'.

@Michael.

No, it's our fault. Us uppity homos have been asking for so much (Basic human rights, the ability to marry someone of our choosing, the ability to walk in broad daylight holding our partners' hands...) that we were bound to overstep our bounds. Don't worry, though. We'll creep back into our closets so they don't have to look at us anymore, and they can just sweep us under the carpet like any other "undesirables."
