Hypocrite, get that beam out of your own eye first; then you will see sharp enough to be able to remove the splinter that sits in your brother's eye." Lucas 6.

The blind man who follows the other blind (blindly) fall together in the same ditch.
Just like the engraving of Pieter Bruegel the old and Jerome Bosch.
