Tone Deafness of Progressive Ideological Bent of Not Wasting Resources on a Cause They Cannot Control

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: The Clueless Lefties are Totally Lost about the Cause of the Recent Uprising in Iran by Iranian Women

The Iranian Islamic Regime may seem to be at odds with the inability to gain some leverage over the uprising, except to resort to the fallback position of shooting away at the shadows when fear of losing such control as they thought they once had requires drastic measures for dramatic effect. This was the second mistake.
The leftist progressives in the background are using this to promote their own agenda and as long as they can, taunt as much as they can, eventually fading away when the damage is done and they leave behind the victims to face the closing wrath of a government that will use all efforts to quell any remaining discontent.
Sound familiar(?): Seattle, Portland, et al; America?
