I ride a bike, and I do not blow lights or stop signs, and certainly do stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. I do not ride on sidewalks or in food crossings. I happen to have a license. As for being "entitled" to being treated like a car, that's a matter of law in most states. And bike lanes that do not "meld" with other traffic -- I'm not sure what you mean, but it seems to me likely to be a matter of traffic engineering and traffic law enforcement.
And smugness? You may not like it, but it sure beats indifference to the problems you create. The world would be a better place if more people commuted by bike, but I don't insist everyone do it. Nor is that the reason I insist on being treated with the rights granted to me under the law. If you don't like smugness, how about the smugness of people who think that *everyone* should drive, and that the public roadways are there for their own benefit alone? Doesn't that strike you as arrogant?
Of course not. People never see the log in their own eye.
