Lefty types that display a certain type of obnoxiousness will arouse my ire. Traits of that obnoxiousness are:
- Moral self-righteousness, along with an implicit or explicit assumption of moral superiority
- Intellectual self righteousness, along with an implicit or explicit assumption of intellectual superiority
- Poseur, too cool for school, bourgeois hating oikophobia. IE, contempt for suburbanites, contempt for the middle class as ‘sheeple’, contempt for rural people.
- A level of animus for conservatives that constitutes plain old bigotry.
- Dissembling, done in furtherance of any points noted above.
- The detached, ironic dialectical style, done in furtherance of any points noted above..
I have a term for folks that demonstrate that sort of obnoxiousness. It’s not a perfect term, or a literal term, but I think it works
That term is: Douche.
Or better yet: Doooooooooooooooooooooouche. If you will.
This post christens the Douchewatch category of the blog. Stay tuned.
