Throughout the world, throughout history, the #1 enemy of the leftist has always been reality. From one moment to the next, he twists and tweaks his entire worldview to avoid facing what’s right in front of him. He lives in an ever-shifting bubble of protective, self-imposed fantasy.
Which is fine until the bad guys, the ones he calls good guys, drop bombs on him.
Several thousand left-wing activists gathered in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square on Saturday evening, calling for an end to bloodshed in the Gaza Strip and a return to negotiations with the Palestinians.
Slogans chanted by the protesters included “Stop the war,” “Bring the soldiers back home” and “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies,” Channel 2 reported…
The demonstrations were cut short when Hamas unilaterally ended a humanitarian truce with Israel and resumed rocket-fire from Gaza.
If you think this will change their minds, you’ve never tried to talk to a leftist. Maybe a handful of them will realize the absurdity of it, but the rest will just incorporate this into their delusional narrative. “Well, Israel forced Hamas to do it,” “This is all because of [fill in the blank with some non sequitur],” “I am a good person,” etc.
For further proof, scroll down to the comments. I can’t bear to read them.
