* Music/PhilOchs' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u52Oz-54VYw Love Me, I'm a Liberal]]" attacks this type from the left.
-->I go to civil rights rallies\\
And I put down the old D.A.R.\\
I love [[Creator/HarryBelafonte Harry]] and [[Creator/SidneyPoitier Sidney]] and [[Creator/SammyDavisJr Sammy]]\\
I hope every colored boy becomes a star\\
But don't talk about revolution\\
That's going a little bit too far\\
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

The defining trait of the Bourgeois Bohemian (Bobo for short) is that while he belongs to the upper or upper-middle class in socioeconomic terms, his values are often inherited from the countercultural movements of the 1960s. Expect very open attitudes towards issues such as religion, sexuality, and recreational drugs, as well as support for liberal/progressive political causes. A fondness for Creator/{{NPR}} and Creator/{{PBS}} is also common, as is a tendency to shop at places like Whole Foods. [[StrawmanPolitical Unsympathetic examples]] of the trope will often be portrayed as being hypocritical about their wealth, criticizing other wealthy elites while sharing much of their lifestyle. Pejorative terms like "limousine liberal" (American), "champagne socialist" (British), "Chardonnay socialist" (Australian), "caviar leftist" (French), "drawing-room socialist" (traditional German), or "Tuscany Fraction" (modern German) are often found applied to this type. Sympathetic portrayals will usually suggest that liberal values and financial success aren't contradictory, and may in fact invoke such ideals as the "Gospel of wealth" or ''noblesse oblige'' as a justification for it.

* The Chalfen family of ''Literature/WhiteTeeth'' is a mixed Jewish/Catholic couple (though they don't practice either religion) who were former hippies with a strong interest in Hinduism and other "alternative" religions. The novel shows that, about two decades later, they are raising a family of overachieving children in a suburb in North London. While (to their credit) the Chalfens send their kids to a [[TheGoodOldBritishComp comprehensive]], [[note]]a specific type of private school so called because they accept any and all students who pay their fees - as opposed to only accepting students of a certain faith or from a certain area).[[/note]] they are also shown (by their magazine subscriptions) to be strong aficionados of socialism, anarchism, what-have-you despite their material comfort (the mother is a successful author of gardening books, while the father is a cutting-edge genetic engineer). The book portrays them more or less sympathetically: they are not arrogant or hypocritical, just incredibly clueless about reality (like when they take a gang member who goes to their kids' school under their wing and [[TheFarmerAndTheViper show him great compassion]] [[StupidGood even though he is very angry and rude and a potential terrorist]]).
