Mob Thinking

Mr. Thorn has attacked all Democrats as an “irrational, hateful, dangerous, angry mob.” I question his lack of outrage or concern regarding Donald Trump’s support and encouragement for angry mobs of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and conspiracy theorists, as well as Trumpski’s calls for violence against journalists and all protesters.

By Mr. Thorn’s standards, it’s the left that’s “unhinged.” I, respectfully, disagree.
