It's probably a good rule never to apologize to a mob of twits. It rarely does any good anyway. Regardless of what you do, a mob of professionally outraged leftists will keep at it until the next target comes along.

So true. Mobs are almost by definition ugly things, but they were hard to put together in the old days. It took too much effort and most people could not be bothered to go out and riot unless things were very heated. Unfortunately, modern technology allows for the easy assembly of "virtual" mobs which people seem to believe are real mobs. They aren't and one shouldn't pay much attention to them.

Modern technology also makes it easier to create actual flash mobs. I've heard of examples of that, often mobbing and looting shops. Those mobs aren't quite as large as a riot, but they do enough harm anyway.

I am clearly out of touch with things. I admit I never heard of the people mentioned in this piece, but it does confirm our discussion about virtual mobs. How else could this mentally unstable person gain such a following?

Cults, Collusion, and the Echo Chamber

In effect, I think this pervert's following is just a modern version of the freak show which has always attracted some portion of the population who want to see others less fortunate than themselves. It makes them feel better.

I guess the metrosexual movement is still around -- although that technically involved effeminate heterosexuals rather than effeminate homosexuals, I believe. Close enough for government work.
