Pitchfork-wielding assemblage [3]

I love overly complicated clues for short words: they delightfully obfuscate, which is, when you think about it, all that a crossword does. Don’t go thinking that “assemblage” refers to some sort of machinery–instead, the clue is basically talking about a group of people with pitchforks, or as Frankenstein’s monster might call them, a MOB.
