Political party elitism. It blinds politicians and makes them think its them vs the evil other guys.

The PC master race and the Euro supremacists on 9gag. Those two are the worst and the most annoying to me. Last time I know people called themselves "master race", 6 million+ Jews died.

The kind you find online surrounding people who say or do stupid stuff (as "satire").

Satire is done wrong if too many people believe it's real. You can't just say something ridiculous with no hint that you're not being serious and pass it off as "satire." If half the audience thinks you're dumb rather than that you're joking, you've failed at creating satire. And it's completely your fault, not your audience's fault for not getting it. The person who created the failed satire is to blame for the confusion since they are aware a lot of people do stupid things and that lots of stupid things happen in the world. Blurring the line just makes the satire confusing, not good.

Being a person who appreciates good reading, this just slays me. First "ironic" was butchered. It appears "satire" is next. I like reading a silly piece for laughs, but my enjoyment of it diminishes whenever I see the writer try to pass it off as satire even though their writing sucks and it's just nonsense with no contextual clues. To be clear, I enjoy real silly stories and I enjoy fake silly stories. But there's a way of writing fake silly stories that people don't seem to understand.

Anyway, there are always two camps.

Camp 1 - "Hurrdurr, it just be a joke, there's no way this can be real. Permanent doubt."
When they are right - "Haha, Camp 2 people are so gullible and stupid! I'm so smart! I knew it couldn't be real! Remember next time you're so eager to call people stupid!"
When they are wrong - "Oh, wow. That's so stupid."

Camp 2 - "Wow, what a dumbass. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."
When they are right - "I have lost faith in humanity."
When they are wrong - "Whew, good thing it's fake. I've lost my ability to doubt human stupidity after seeing all this other stupid crap."


Camp 1 is the elitist group. Okay, we get it, you understood a shitty joke. Wow-wee! Sure showed me! That doesn't make it a good joke, just convincing acting. It's still a shitty joke that has been poorly executed. Stop gloating about it...

The most HARMFUL elitism is probably societal stuff. Like when one country's people believe their country is the best and all others are inferior. Or when political parties resort to name-calling rather than debate since they think they're so smart and have lost sight of the actual issue.

Aside from crazy extreme societal elitists, MOBA & FPS elitists are pretty damn annoying, like seriously, disappear from existence annoying.

Oh, it's in every country. When you see politicians throwing chairs at one another, something is wrong.

I can guarantee you that no Jews will die when the PC master race enslaves all the filthy console peasants. We need slaves to power the generators and build our houses and the filthy console peasants need jobs. Gaben be praised!

People that think they're the best when they just start something or are better than <70% of people. There is nothing more annoying than someone worse than you acting like you suck compared to them when they don't even know if you're good or not. If you're the proven best, you can shit-talk all you want. Until then, don't act all cocky.

We've had some terrible left wing elitists here, but the elitism of many of these right wing nut-jobs is on a completely different level. But lets not get into a political discussion.
