Some on the left are seeing how unhinged some of their comrades are when it comes to the Israel-Hamas war. We've seen how some on the left have stood up to the anti-Israel insanity, like Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA), who is under a lot of pressure to flip to support the ceasefire side. But as I reported, he turned them down flat and left them fuming.
This latest leftist "cause" has also highjacked all other causes and taken primacy. The anti-Israel characters even seem to have hijacked the princess of climate justice, Greta Thunberg.
Thunberg was speaking at a climate protest in Amsterdam when she invited two anti-Israel activists onto the stage who were wearing keffiyehs. Thunberg was also wearing a keffiyeh around her neck.
'As a climate justice movement, we have to listen to the voices of those who are being oppressed and those who are fighting for freedom and for justice. Otherwise, there can be no climate justice without international solidarity,' she said.
There was also an anti-Israel group next to the stage waving flags and chanting slogans.
Thunberg said that "the people in power have not been listening." That's when a man interrupted.

"I have come here for a climate demonstration, not a political view," the man said, trying to take the mic from Thunberg. He was then grabbed by one of the women in the keffiyehs and another man. They dragged him off the stage as the crowd booed, and Thunberg said, "Calm down."
Then once the man was off the stage, notice how one of the women in the keffiyehs directed Thunberg back to her goal of making the anti-Israel statement. Gotta stay on task.
Thunberg chanted, "No climate justice on occupied land."
What's incredibly ironic is the man thought his climate demo was being hijacked by politics -- when of course climate protests are about politics. Looks like climate folks are wondering what's going on here. But dissent is not tolerated, as he found out.
When the politics finds a new focus, everything must get behind that and even the climate princess has to hawk it and somehow explain it through the interconnectedness of all things -- no climate justice if the land is occupied. Um, Greta, but the land isn't occupied, except by Hamas. Why aren't you calling out what Hamas has been doing to Israel and the people of Gaza?
Just in case it wasn't clear what politics we're talking about here, Greta made it clear earlier with what she chanted while she was marching and the flag she marched beside. When I was covering Occupy and the BLM, this was a common chant, "A-Anti-Anticapitalista."

The red and black flag was also a common Occupy flag. The black stands for anarchy and the red for Communism.
Whatever the "cause," whatever the current "thing," the underlying point is always that and that the present evil capitalist order must be turned out to "fix" everything.
