"Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." Well said, Patrick Henry, Red Hill

The truth can cut like a knife which is why it is best tempered with love.  Often enough the mobs can be ginned up into calling for the blood of anyone.  Forget about the cause, inflict pain, dominate, 'resist' without knowing why  this is not uncommon.  

Interestingly, opinion can be labeled as 'violence' these days and being treated as such in courts of law.
