  • The Bulls of Bashan started as a biblical phrase from Psalm 22 of the Old Testament. Since then it has been used as a metaphor for a collection of individuals acting with a mob mentality against a vulnerable target. This mob's intention is usually suspect at best and may not be totally revealed at once thus luring in the vulnerable target. Also, individuals from this single-minded group may temporarily hive themselves off to do mischief in solo fashion before once again returning to the group, the other 'Bulls of Bashan'.
