If you’ve ever wondered why leftists are so angry all the time, one reason is that they’re exhausted by the constant demands of identity politics. Instead of seeing things as they really are and reacting accordingly, leftists must constantly readjust their standards according to which party in any particular conflict is the bigger victim. This is rarely a good idea, but at least sometimes it can provide a bit of mild amusement to normal people.

Haaretz reports:

Swedish nationalists are planning a gay ‘pride’ march through Muslim-majority districts in the country’s capital, according to media reports and a dedicated Facebook page.

The march, called ‘Pride Järva,’ is scheduled to take place on July 29, and will pass through Tensta and Husby, majority-Muslim districts in Stockholm’s north…

The scheduled march has been criticized as provocative and racist by those on the left, with angry comments appearing on the event’s Facebook page. Two residents of the Jarva area, Noah Nord and Emelie Mårtensson, claim that ‘Jarva Pride’ “pits two oppressed groups against each other,” and have organized a counter-demonstration.

That’s right: Gay rights activists are protesting a gay pride parade because it will offend Muslims.

Holding a gay pride parade in a Christian neighborhood is okay, because gays rank higher on the pyramid of victimhood. And in the unlikely event that Muslims ever held a religious event in a gay neighborhood, that would probably be okay. “Gay” trumps “Christian,” and “Muslim” trumps “gay.” Muslims are always the victims. Always.

Incidentally, it’s 2015 and people are still being put to death throughout the Muslim world for being gay. Weird, huh?
