Endangering a candidate is now a benevolent way to express oneself

The Democratic Party operative who jumped the barrier in an attempt attack Donald Trump onstage now faces a federal charge.

The Associated Press reported on his strange defense.

From the AP:
A man who tried to rush the stage at a Donald Trump rally in Ohio was charged by federal prosecutors Tuesday with illegally entering a restricted area.
Authorities say Thomas DiMassimo, of Fairborn, jumped a barricade and rushed at Trump on Saturday. Video from the rally shows DiMassimo was able to touch the stage before security officials tackled him.
DiMassimo, 22, was charged in federal court in Dayton. The misdemeanor charge carries up to a one-year prison sentence.
DiMassimo, who attends Wright State University in Dayton, is a hard-working college student whose intentions were benevolent and a way to express his political ideals, his attorney, Jon Paul Rion, said.
"He clearly did not mean any ill will toward any person and was simply expressing his political views," Rion said.
So now the First Amendment allows you to ignore security.

Such a defense never occurred to Sirhan Sirhan


  1. The best way to keep things quiet in Cleveland will be to post open microphones and amplifiers on every Street corner. The left wing moral narcissists will gravitate to them like a fox to a tar baby. It'll be noisy, but peaceful.

  2. Anybody in their right mind would know that was stupid. Perhaps he was just testing the level of security for some future attempt. - Elric

    1. His lawyer is testing "levels of defense" for future anarchists.

  3. Still close enough to shoot Trump, or any candidate. I am 69 and have seen too many politicians shot. Do Not Want To See It Again!!!!

  4. Conservatives are too polite to be disruptive. We even pick up trash after events and leave them looking nicer than when we arrived! Liberals, on the other hand, don't give a shit about anything but their own noble righteous selves. Trump 2016.

  5. A Democrat assassin would get a helluva surprise if Trump returned fire.

  6. He clearly DID mean ill will.

    1. His lawyer has to offer something in defense. I'd be hard pressed to come up with something better.

  7. @LYNNDH: I read that Trump wears a body armor vest. Don't know how true that is.

  8. OptionRobot.com Review

    There are a fair few websites that offer binary trading options. However, it is important for investors to note that many of these websites are fraudulent in nature. The only safe websites for trading binary options are those that are supervised by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These include the Nadex and Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). An investor who is interested in purchasing foreign binary options should ensure that the broker he or she is working with is registered with the SEC or Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Those who are not registered with either of these bodies are not legally allowed to work with U.S.-based binary option investors.
