This question already has an answer here:
I am looking for a word to describe the situation :
A poor person describes his struggles of poverty, while a middle-class (economically speaking) lady is faking her empathy to the man – and the conversation goes in the lines of "Do not despair, keep hoping, work = reward... " etc. All these words very often repeated to the poor person, but his state does not change due to certain unchanging social situations. The lady is aware of it.
Nevertheless, just to virtue-signal, the lady who never experienced the struggles of the other – goes on making empty, often condescending remarks to the guy, without genuine empathy, just mechanically repeating the statements everyone else does.
She even goes on to invent some silver lining, such as the positive effects of poverty is that you will not have to manage a big house..
Is there a word to describe the remarks of the lady? Patronizing does not quite hit the nail, and condescending does not quite capture the part in italics. Are there any words to describe what I am looking for?
[Name] at this point is truly tired of continuous _______ from every 4th middle-class . The last thing he'd appreciate now is pity.
Part of Speech: Noun;
I searched thesaurus for patronizing and condescension
A single word would be better than a phrase .
