** For the ultimate example of this for Conservatives: AlGore. Conservatives argue that Gore has never really bothered to explain why people should take him seriously when he tells everyone else to conserve resources despite his own massive wastes, other than to say that it's okay because he bought carbon credits... from himself. It's little wonder he's the favorite (and "acceptable") target of nonbelievers in human-caused climate change. Gore's defenders would argue that Gore's line of work, environmental advocacy, inevitably require resource-intensive travel, and that Gore is being held to an impossible standard by those who are just trying to shut him up. They would argue, also, that Gore's investment in, profiting from, green technology is an ideal and practical strategy in a capitalist economy - the same ethos most of Gore's opponents claim to lionize.

* Clint Eastwood does it hilariously and memorably in GranTorino when he successfully intimidates a group of black gangsters and a "wigger" nearby cheers, Clint growls "These guys don't want to be your brothers, and I don't blame them!"

* PlayedForLaughs in ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. The members of the Host Club (especially [[UpperClassTwit Tamaki]]) are depicted as well-meaning, but [[ShelteredAristocrat hopelessly out of touch]] with the middle- and lower-classes. For example, they regard instant coffee and instant ramen as interesting novelties, and the Hitachiin brothers mistake Haruhi's description of a kiddie pool for that of an inflatable raft.

* Camden, the setting of ''MyNameIsEarl'' started off as a typical rural-south town. Although it ''did'' have a trailer park (and a few zany characters therein), it wasn't too over the top. By Season 4, it underwent {{Flanderization}} into a bizarre and backwards CloudCuckooland.

* On ''MyNameIsEarl'', Earl is solving an item on his list related to this: taking advantage of [[NaiveEverygirl young women]] from a nearby Amish-like village (which is now facing a shortage of women, seeing as Earl and Randy showed them what they were missing!) The village is described as being ''so'' extremely Luddite that even ''the wheel'' is looked upon as an abomination.

* While AccentuateTheNegative is his general style, [[http://joshreads.com/ Josh Fruhlinger]] (a.k.a. Blog/TheComicsCurmudgeon) seems to reserve a special level of contempt and disdain for the newspaper comic ''{{Pluggers}}'', which typically chronicles the exploits of older, more rural individuals. Each one is rephrased as a way to say that such individuals are, among other things, alcoholics, abusers, morons, or occasionally racists.
** And don't forget all the meth labs and cross burnings in [[SnuffySmith Hootin Holler]]!
** As well as the denizens of [[MarkTrail Lost Forest]] -- which is rather bizarre, since these days, [[GreenAesop over-the-top environmentalism]] is more generally associated with elitist, middle-to-upper-class liberals.
