Donald Trump's Dayton rally was tense as security detail stormed stage


The morning after violence rocked an axed Donald Trump rally in Chicago, tensions were running high at a rally he held in Ohio on Saturday.

Protesters continuously interrupted the event, held at Dayton International Airport, and at one point security personnel rushed the stage after several people were heard screaming behind Trump.

According to reporters at the event, someone may have been trying to rush the stage. 

The incident took place moments after Trump had finished belittling another protester who was being led out of the event space.

As he tried to resume his speech, several shouts were heard behind him and he ducked towards the podium. Members of his security detail rushed the stage and surrounded him.  Read more...

The day before, one of the craft fair organizers had posted for musicians, then deleted the post after refusing to disclose whether she’d be paying the performers.

Within seconds, a craft fair became a craft war.

The next morning, I woke up to a comment thread (approaching 400 comments!) accusing the OP of deleting her "way out of accountability.” The cruel, corporate miscreant — who babysits and makes stuffed animals for a living — was accused of embezzlement, supporting the patriarchy and — sickest of all — capitalism. This wasn't the anarcho-syndicalist craft fair we had all been dreaming of. She, I learned, was pro-tarot cards but anti-DIY porn. Proposals to start an alternative craft fair to the alternative craft fair were issued. Links to the communist manifesto were shared. This wasn’t a comments section: This was battle. Read more...
