25. "The left" is not being hypocritical. "The left" has had nothing to do with creating a spontaneous

...uprising of millions of outraged citizens of all ethnicities. Millions. People have had it up to their teeth with Trump's bullshit and with the systemic and unequal savagery of our police.

Without throwing a wet blanket on the outcry of millions, there have been people, both here in our DU community (which is not "the left" -- we are, as the name says, Democrats across a spectrum) and in the more rational voices commenting in the media (which is also not "the left" ) that people at protests are putting their health at risk.

We've discussed it here. One of the phrases from an MSNBC contributor that struck me was: "A virus doesn't care how noble your cause is" so take what precautions you can.

Twice in this thread you've accused us of "hypocracy." (That's hypocrisy, btw.) I urge you to rethink that -- or thoroughly explain what it is you see that strikes you as hypocritical.
