When Protesters Attack: I'm an Arrogant, Small-Minded Fascist Grinning Idiot
For a brief time, I was able to tape the rally speakers without intimidation. But then someone came up behind me and whispered a question in my ear. 'Are you nervous?' he asked. He pointed out how many people were at the rally, and continued to ask me whether I was afraid. Again, under the circumstances, I took this as a threat.
Evan Coyne Maloney, citizen journalist, filmed a Palestinian solidarity rally.

What happened to him made me feel sad, angry and frightened.
