Why is the elite anti-intelectual?

Depends on the elite...
Most often, however, intellectuals tend to be leaders if there are rebellions. So, the first thing power elites do is get control of the media, then the education systems and hence the next generation for the elite.
So, it's not so much they are anti-intellectual as making sure that they can stay in power for longer.

Can you be more specific? You can't even spell 'intellectual'.

Because they would rather do drugs and hang out with Nicki Minaj and The Weeknd instead of listening to Mozart and studying history
