Blind leaders of the Blind

Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? -Matthew 15:1,2
Christ discussed.  Then later said to those who were taught of Him,

"Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted shall be uprooted. Leave them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both shall fall into a ditch." -Matthew 15:14

The question is, who is the blind man?  Which are the blind leaders?  Which are the blind followers?  Which is Christ telling them to leave alone? 

Apparently these blind leaders will take care of each other, equally, in a ditch.  It's a sad story, but Christ declares clearly to his taught ones to simply leave them alone.  

One's interpretation of the word "leave" may vary, dependent upon the Spirit. 

With abject love,
