Here’s a short, simple, powerful video narrated by millennials to challenge their fellow millennials. In just one minute, hear pretty much every social issue the self-righteous Left purports to care about in the context of today’s anti-Israel propaganda. If this video doesn’t give the self-deceptive Left at least a brief spasm of cognitive dissonance, nothing will.
