Sound like a bunch of nazicists, criminals can throw a party. Doesn’t make them any more morally bankrupt than this administration.

Alex, why don’t you expand on the core issue here. The outrage comes from the use of the word “sophisticated” What is the root word? “Sophisma”, or something close to it.

What do I think? What I think is that this is an in-your-face, display and unapologetic decadence on the part of the American elite. It rather reminds minded me of F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, This Side of Paradise. The main character, Amory Blaine, gave forth with his class hatred as follows: ”I detest poor people” thought Amory suddenly. ”I hate them for being poor.
