* In the {{WWE}} horror film ''SeeNoEvil'', a ''very'' self-righteous vegetarian girl is one of the wayward teenagers ordered to clean the abandoned hotel where [[Wrestling/{{Kane}} Jacob Goodnight]] resides. Goodnight "punishes" her, as he does most of the other teens, by [[KarmicTransformation literally feeding her to some dogs]].

* '''Liberals''': Seen by many as a bunch of whiny, lazy, hypocritical, overly-PC, hipster free-loaders who, as opposed to actually going out and fighting for their beliefs, instead spend more time on Tumblr ranting about how "white cis-men" are oppressing minorities and holding back society. Support abortion, so they must enjoy killing babies. They're also depicted as selling out Western civilisation to Communists, Muslims or whatever group currently scares Nationalists. In addition, they are considered delusional social rejects who hide in their safe spaces and claim to have PTSD to justify lashing out at people who disagree with them.

Added DiffLines:

* '''Bad drivers'''. People who are inexperienced at driving can never get any sympathy at all. Commonly, they'll be seen as know-it-all idiots or just assholes who have no respect for other drivers. The dislike for bad drivers stems from the fact inexperienced drivers have a high chance of causing accidents. Even when they're not, they'll be more than eager to point out how poorly others drive and whatever unfortunate happens to them on the road will be seen as well-deserved karma for them.

* '''Drivers of Certain Vehicles'''. While just being on the road makes you a target for the wrath of anyone driving at a different speed, the car you're in can make it much worse. Especially true for SUV drivers and those with electric/hybrid vehicles who are both seen as incredibly arrogant for different reasons. The SUV driver will get it for consuming far more than what's seen as their "fair share" of the world's resources and rubbing their ability to pay the fuel costs in everyone's face while the hybrid driver is accused of being a conceited leftist environmentalist, turning the mere act of driving somewhere into a political movement. And may God help you if you drive a [=BMW=], because that automatically brands you as a {{Jerkass}}, likely in adition to any of the above features.

** This trend peaked in the 2000s, when being sensitive was considered edgy and fashionable. With the backlash against Political Correctness in the 2010s, the emo crowd have been replaced by the '''Edge-Lords''', who wish to be seen as edgy but not as sensitive.



* '''Conservatives''': Often portrayed as a bunch of middle-aged, gun-loving, white Christian southerners who watch Fox News all day to support their own beliefs and think that the country has strayed too far from the path of God and that [[MoralGuardians TV and video games are corrupting the nation's youth.]] They are also seen as pro-big business global-warming deniers with anti-feminist beliefs. Also, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking they vote Republican.]]

In addition, they are considered delusional social rejects who think that there are more than two genders and claim to have PTSD to justify lashing out at people who disagree with them.

* In the ''Film/ThePursuitOfHappyness'' the main antagonists are Hippie thieves who exist only to steal WillSmith's income, the bone-density scanners he sells. Capitalist fairytale, indeed.

** The stereotype gets inverted in Flanders, where people who go for higher education are considered to be the intelligent hardworking people. Those that do not go for higher education are usually considered to be lazy and dumb. The main reason is probably that higher education is very cheap (1000$ a year is the absolute maximum and it is entirely possible to finish high education at 100$ a year) if you compare to the bills you have to pay for education in the US and UK and that there is a high turnover rate (66% of all Belgians do not have a diploma of higher degrees) which makes sure that pretty much only the most genius get selected. It is got to a point where people who choose not to go for higher education have very negative stereotypes attached to them (see BSO students below).

* '''[[http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beroepssecundair_onderwijs BSO]] students''': Although only known in Flanders (thanks to the fact that those students are only part of the Flemish education system), they are relentlessly insulted for being lazy, immature losers that end up here because they want to finish their education as quickly as possible and do as little as possible in their job. They are also said to be troublemakers, jerkasses to teachers and good students alike and commonly hooligans, addicts and people of laughably primitive thought (who are thus homophobic, still think that women should stay in the kitchen etc.). This mainly has to do with the fact that it is the recommended option for drop-outs (to the point that drop-outs of the sixth degree in elementary school could choose a trajectory that allows them to go there instead of redoing your year again). Add in that many of the less ambitious immigrants (the more ambitious would choose TSO) choose this and you get a recipe for mockery that in many ways resembles the stereotype of US and UK college students really well.

* [[http://www.awel.be/forum/vragen/11223-bso-word-uitgescholden This blog]] may be proof of this. It goes about someone who just happens to be in the BSO and therefore gets insulted for being a dumbass. A few commentators even point out that it is indeed true that many people who are in the BSO are lazy dumbasses that don't want to study.
