Doth The Left Protest Too Much?

Social media is awash with commentators claiming that the political left has lost its collective mind. They support these claims with videos of university students bursting into hysteria at the tiniest lapse of political correctness, academics making indefensible claims about race or gender, or street interviews with people who look like incoherent fools unable to defend their left-wing political views under questioning from conservative interviewers. Has the left gone too far? Has the left gone crazy, or is this a strawman created by right wing media personalities cherry-picking the most extreme leftists and dragging them into the spotlight? Is the question of left vs. right politics a false dichotomy intended to divide us and distract us from more important issues?
