You can find so many things peculiar or funny about how our current society works that you become numb to the double standard that exists, leaving you — most times — simply saying, ‘Of course that happened’ or ‘I’m not surprised.’ The actual “privilege” that activists and criminals receive nowadays are an example of such a society.
Take what happened at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) office on Thursday.
Anti-Israel/pro-Palestinian protesters occupied her office in the Capitol building, essentially staging a sit-in to call on the pro-Israel senator “to demand a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel,” according to The Post Millennial.
The insurrectionists — if the label is good for some, then why not for others doing some of the same things — chanted multiple phrases, even going so far as call the New York senator “Genocide Gillibrand.”

In another clip of the sit-in, one man could be heard saying “we’re not going anywhere” while practicing different chants.

Listen, I’m all for protest. It’s enshrined to Americans as a right in our founding documents. But, you can’t claim one situation is one thing and the same situation — just featuring different people with different political beliefs — is another thing. Activists have a very difficult time understanding hypocrisy and nuance, so don’t hold your breath on getting any of them, ever, to admit what they did could be anywhere close to construed as wrong.
