It is so tremendously handy. If anything stupid is ever uttered, someone from the Left uttered it. If something stupid happens, someone on the Left thought it a good idea. If something ever goes wrong, there is always some specter of the Left causing it.
This state of things solves the ever so tricky problem of finding someone to blame. It is after all something of a hassle to analyze the situation, understand the historical context and identify the motives of all the relevant moving parts. It is an even bigger hassle to admit that things are complex and more often than not ended up the way are without anyone actually wanting them that way.
Blaming the Left is so much easier. Whatever it is, whatever has happened, whatever the situation. It was always the Left.
The only thing left is to admit it. You love the Left.
The alternative is, as you already know, an uncomfortable hassle.
