Uncommon words that intelligentsia, both on the right and the left utilize:

intelligentsia
The intellectual elite of a society.




From the “trailer of the movie The Take”:

Hostile reporter to factory worker:

Your standing in front of 90 million dollars worth of factory (equipment) which you and your compenueros have taken over, for your own benefit….We have a word for that, its called stealing.

Factory worker, smiling broadly during the question, as if he was expecting it and has answered the question countless times before:

Uh-huh, there’s another word: Expropriation

Expropriation:
The taking over of private property by a government, often without fair compensation but usually with a legal assertion that the government has a right to do so.


Boston Globe, negative review of “The Take”, found on “Rotten Tomatoes”:

“But film demands broader and more conscious thinking than the stale post-Seattle protest bromides on display here. As worthy as its subject is of attention, "The Take" gives agitprop a bad name.”

agitprop
Political propaganda, especially favoring communism and disseminated through literature, drama, art, or music: “It also is a conspiracy movie, agitprop against today's targets, big government and big business” (George F. Will [conservative writer]).



jingoist
Extreme nationalism characterized especially by a belligerent foreign policy; chauvinistic patriotism.
