The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

It appears that the Left and its many supporters in the mainstream media are relatively sanguine about violence and, yes, racism, when it comes from people that they have elevated into a near-sainted status. Those people are illegal immigrants and the Left-wing activists and agitators that support them. The people who perpetrate violence against attendees at Donald trump rallies seem to get a pass. Prominent Democrats, including big city mayors, have suggested that the riots that occurred last week in California were the fault of Trump, who has the temerity to offer a counter-narrative to open borders. That's a lot like suggesting that a woman who dresses provocatively or is fall-down drunk is the catalyst for a violent rape, but that level of irony escapes the oh-so sanctimonious activists and agitators.

At the riots and attacks that occurred last week in California, activists and agitators carried signs that read: "This is Mexico! You’re not welcome on Native/Mexican soil” suggesting that the state was "stolen" from Mexico and that their every grievance is justified. Hmmm. That sounds an awful lot like the claims of palestinians who argue without any justification and in direct conflict with historical fact that Israel has been "stolen" from them.

But wait. It looks increasingly likely that Bernie Sanders' appointees might hijack the Democrat platform committee and introduce a virulently anti-Israel platform. These pro-palestinian leftists, adherents to the despicable BDS movement, now have their chance to soil what was once a political party that was correctly and honestly pro-Israel. If the Dems accede to the Sander's appointees' demands, the party shouldn't stop there. Why don't they add language to their platform that California is Mexico and should be returned to the Mexico? But wait, following the logic of pro-Palestinian Democrats, maybe the Dems should add Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona to the deal, and give back those states as well. After all, they were, like Israel, "stolen," weren't they?

After all, in the through-the-looking-glass world of the hard left, "oppressed" people are always right, regardless of how outrageous and misdirected their claims might be.
