I’ve been thinking about this: we expect it from the wingnuts but why do people on the left feel so freed-up to go so aggressively (and rudely) after the President? I’m wondering if it comes from the notion that this guy “better do what he’s told” kind of mentality.

This is not about the politics of populism. It about the politics of the jackboot. It is not about an opposition that has every right to free expression. It is about an angry minority engaging in intimidation backed by the threat of violence.
