Letter: It’s frightening to see lynch mob mentality

It’s frightening to see lynch mob mentality

A few days ago, a Muslim woman, wearing Muslim clothes and a top with the words, “Salam, I come in peace” was ejected from a Donald Trump rally. While it is not shocking that Trump himself prompted the rejection, what is truly frightening were the lynch mob reactions of Trump’s supporters, and the blogs that appeared at the end of the article citing the event agreeing with the reaction and pushing for murdering all Muslims.

While I am sure that Trump will never personally harm anybody, the next time there is violence against a Muslim, he should be held responsible for inciting and legitimizing the behavior. Watch an old newsreel of one of Hitler’s rallies where Adolf inveighed against the Jews and you get a close parallel of Trump’s supporters. What are we becoming?
