Condescend: v. to communicate and reveal a feeling of superiority and use implied and/or overt criticism of others

“And if that is too hard for you to grasp, then I will just have to explain it to you again and again.”

This is an example of a condescending remark which is really implying superior learning ability of the communicator and criticizing by implying stupidity in the recipient of the remark with the words explain again and again.

“I have to descend to your level because you are so dim witted!”

Descending to your level implies a superior level of the communicator and here the criticism is overt because dim witted is just a synonym for stupid.
