I am popular enough to be smack talked. I had a troll thread about me eating biscuits vs ladarron. And also a thread calling me out to pay my child support.

They're raving about little dive bars and old restaurants in places like Berwyn, Bridgeport and "West Logan Square" (aka Hermosa), places that I was laughed at by them back in the day for growing up in and having relatives in. They're frequenting thrift stores as though they were paid to do so, something I've shopped at my entire life.

They aren't changing the world; they're just exploiting aspects of the average blue-collar worker's way of life back in the 20th century. It's ironic to be average, look poor, and pretend to be thrifty when you grew up with a Lexus and Land Rover in a 4-bedroom suburban house, ya know.
I admit that would be frustrating, but you just sound like you're competing in the Who's a Bigger Hipster competition.

Default Some would say that is pretty condescending

You mock hipsters for supposedly having a privileged life, yet you make it a point to mention that you grew up with a nanny and needed weekend excursions to see how "average" people lived?

At least he ain't trying to hide it. Hipsters would never want people to know their privileged backround. It would ruin their "cred."

So the hatred stems from the fact that hipsters don't shop at high end stores, buy designer brands, and ride around in BMW's.

I do not recall mocking hipsters for being privileged. I do not think most hipsters grew up privileged, personally. It shows in most of their mannerism.
