Entitled condescending ignorance.

Entitlement is something one can deal with if it's, at least, backed up by some substance.

Ignorance is understandable. We all have it to some degree (and topic) or the other. It is our nature. It makes as humble.

But the combination of the two, entitlement and ignorance, with a touch of condescension, makes it dismissible.

Enough said, we've used more words than it's deserved.
