"corduroy-jacketed, snaggletoothed, lefty academics"

"corduroy-jacketed, snaggletoothed, lefty academics."

This is an example of gestalt technique.

You build a picture in your mind from the different elements provided.

And you immediately know who is being referred to!

One wonders what the bro-squad round Jeremy makes of this veiled attack.
