During the campaign, Donald Trump fueled the fanaticism of his supporters — who include Klansmen and the American Nazi Party — using violent words and threats of assault [remember when he suggested his Second Amendment supporters “do something” about Hillary?].
One fan, angered by an anti-Trump rally at Ohio State University Monday took him up on his suggestions, resulting in his arrest and indefinite suspension from the school.
From The Lantern, the student publication of Ohio State University:
During a protest that ended up concluding in the Ohio Union, an anti-Trump protester was tackled while he was delivering a speech. The protester, who appears in court documents as Timothy Adams, was knocked down from where he was standing on the steps leading to the second floor.
Multiple emails have been sent from university administrators to students and faculty regarding the disturbances surrounding the election.
“We protect First Amendment rights actively, but we do not under any circumstances tolerate intimidation or threats to students, faculty, staff or visitors to our campus,” said University President Michael Drake in one such email sent on Saturday evening.
The student who tackled Adams, Shane Michael Stanton, was arrested and placed under indefinite suspension from Ohio State, said Gerard Basalla, Undergraduate Student Government president and a fourth-year in political science and strategic communication.
