a rally crowd:

    By BRIAN MELLEY, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — The organizer of a Southern California rally against racism who drove into a crowd of counterprotesters had asked police for help from a hostile crowd but was ignored, her lawyer said Monday. Tatiana Turner was in fear for her life and never intended to harm anyone when she drove through a crowd that had surrounded her car Saturday in Yorba Linda, seriously injuring two counterprotesters, attorney Ludlow Creary II said. “She wasn’t trying to hit anybody,” Creary said. ”She wasn’t trying to hurt anybody.” The Sheriff’s Department, however, said deputies did not think Turner was in danger when she accelerated into the crowd of people. “It did not appear from the video we’ve been able to see that there was a direct threat,” spokeswoman Carrie Braun said. “I wasn’t there and wasn’t sitting in the vehicle.

    Organizers set off a cloud of smoke at the opening of speeches for Saturday's Proud Boys rally at Delta Park in Portland, Oregon. The Proud Boys’ plans to bring a large-scale invasion of street-brawling “Patriots” to Portland on Saturday went sideways when their big rally at Delta Park—for which a city permit had been denied because the crowd size was estimated at 20,000—fell flat, with only about 300 mostly out-of-towners showing up in the steady drizzle to demand the city “End Domestic Terrorism.” Three miles away at Peninsula Park, a crowd of counterprotesters estimated at over 1,000 gathered peacefully. And indeed, despite the governor’s emergency declaration and wide fears about violence, the rallies ended peacefully as both sides went home largely without incident. Later that night, however, the scene became all too familiar as police attacked milling crowds of counterprotesters in the downtown area, along with multiple journalists covering them. x x...

Although the Crystal Lake event's organizers said that they intended for it to be non-political, some arrived holding signs in favor of President Trump, while others wore MAGA hats. : "The main focus today is getting the kids back in school and putting the kids in the best position they can be in," Steve Smith, co-organizer of the rally, said. "As parents, we don't want this to be political and maybe we should make that a little more clear." Watch a report on the story from WGN-9 below: Sky Palma MORE FROM Sky Palma
    CNN blasted the Trump campaign Saturday for once again holding a rally with supporters crowded closely together and very few people wearing masks, except for the obvious exception of those standing within camera view behind President Donald Trump. CNN host Ana Cabrera noted that despite the pandemic, the Rose Garden event where Trump announced the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court featured “few masks, no social distancing.” “Even Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, not practicing what he’s been preaching about taking coronavirus precautions,” said Cabrera as Azar and other attendees of the SCOTUS announcement were shown without face masks. Cabrera introduced CNN corespondent Ryan Nobles, and asked “We saw very few masks at the Rose Garden ceremony earlier and we see a few masks behind the president, but what are you seeing out there in the crowd, because clearly, there isn’t any social distancing?” “You know, Ana, this is like every single one of these...

    PORTLAND—After about 500 members of the right-wing Proud Boys gathered in Portland on Saturday, it didn’t take long for police to announce the first bout of violence: an assault on a man of color who was livestreaming the demonstration. The attack was caught on video, which showed a man shoving the livestreamer down and kicking him in the face. It was not immediately clear what preceded the assault. Police took to Twitter to ask any witnesses to come forward. The incident came after the Proud Boys, who organized the demonstration in Delta Park, repeatedly stoked fears about anti-fascist activists, commonly known as “antifa,” seeking to stir up trouble. Rally participants directed most of their ire at independent journalists instead. The livestreamer who came under attack was followed by rally attendees along with an independent photojournalist, Zachary Perry, as they attempted to leave the park, Perry told The Daily Beast. He...

    A raucous melee broke out in Ocean City, Maryland, on Friday night during an unauthorized pop-up car rally event. Though unauthorized, the annual weekend-long event — titled H2Oi — draws hundreds and sometimes thousands of attendees from across the region. Viral video caught the moment a suspect launched himself out of the crowd and onto the back of a Maryland law enforcement official who was attempting to detain another suspect. What are the details? According to a Saturday morning report from The Delmarva Daily Times, the incident — which reportedly took place near Baltimore Avenue in Ocean City — sparked a large police presence that resulted with one suspect jumping onto the back of a police officer during a scuffle. A now-viral video posted by Campos Media shows a rally-goer break from the crowd as he jumps on top of at least...
    President Donald Trump repeatedly told a rally crowd that former Vice President Joe Biden will perform well in next week’s debate, while also predicting that the media would praise Biden no matter the outcome of their first bout. Trump held a rally in Newport News, Virginia Friday night that delivered many of the features that have become de rigueur at these events, including a packed and mostly-maskless crowd — with the exception of the supporters standing directly behind Trump in the frame as he riffs on familiar subjects. It also featured Vox’s Aaron Rupar tweeting out a thread of clips featuring those riffs, including a decidedly less-than-confident chunk on Tuesday’s first presidential debate. “They said ‘How do you think he’s going to do in the debate?’, I think good,” Trump said. “He’s been doing it for 47 years, I think he’s going to do good. I think.” “And one thing we know,if...

Trump delivered lengthy remarks at a Pittsburgh-area rally Tuesday night, during which he eventually introduced his daughter to the crowd of mostly-maskless supporters. “I have a woman with us tonight who has devoted so much, she gave up her business, she said ‘Dad I’m going to come down to Washington and help you, and I love you Daddy, and we’re going to help people, and I don’t care,'” Trump said, mimicking his daughter. “And she was very successful in every way.

    Ethan Miller/Getty Images Moments after President Donald Trump began speaking at a rally in Bemidji, MN on Friday, the news of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing become public. Yet for the duration of his speech, the president was not informed. Now, a new report explains why Trump was kept in the dark. According to The New York Times, the decision not to tell Trump about the Justice’s passing was a conscious one — made by aides who were afraid of how the crowd would react to the news. From Times correspondent Peter Baker: When news broke on Friday that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died, President Trump was just five minutes into a campaign rally in Minnesota and aides opted not to pass word to him onstage. If he announced the death of the liberal justice from the lectern, they feared the crowd would cheer. And so, for...

    Ohio Lt. Gov. Jon Husted was heckled by the crowd at President Trump's rally for urging people to wear masks. The Republican spoke at a Trump rally outside of Dayton, Ohio, on Monday when Trump supporters eager to hear the president started booing him and encouraging him to “get off the stage," according to Cleveland.com. He suggested that even if they don't like masks, they should wear a Trump-inspired one, but it was not well-received by those in attendance. “Hang on, I get it,” Husted said. “You don’t like it. But if you go into a grocery store where you got to wear one ... Just listen up." “All right, I get it," he shouted over the boos. "But if somebody tells you to take it off, you can at least say that you’re trying to save the country by wearing one of President Donald Trump’s masks." Some Republicans...

As video posted to YouTube by NBC revealed, he suggested that he was planning to nominate a woman. Around the same time, also asked the female attendees if their husbands approved of their decision to attend his events. Trump appeared to recognize several of the women in the audience before he pretended to hold a poll over whether he should nominate a male or a female to replace Ginsburg, who died on Friday from complications due to metastatic pancreatic cancer. “Ok let’s do a poll.

    Stephen Maturen, Getty President Donald Trump held a rally before a packed and mostly maskless crowd in Minnesota, where he told them their gathering is “a protest against stupidity.” On Friday night, Trump spoke to a crowd of Minnesotans in a hangar in Bemidji for more than two hours. And while the attendees standing directly behind Trump in the camera shot largely wore masks, the rest of the tightly-packed crowd was mostly maskless. At one point during the speech, Trump resurrected the familiar gripe about restrictions on crowds to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. “You don’t have to wear a masks at protests. So I said, you know we can’t have a rally, the most we can have is 10 people. But why don’t we just call it a protest, because this is a protest,” trump said. He then added “It’s a protest against stupidity.” Minnesota’s guidelines for public...
    If it were up to the radical left Democrats that surround presidential candidate Joe Biden, criminals would be “running all over” Minnesota, President Donald Trump said Friday at his rally in Bemidji. “Only by voting for me are you going to save — I hate to say this — I did it with your iron ore. I did it with some other things, and I’ll do it for you again. I’ll do it for you again, but if you vote for me. I’m the difference and I’m the wall,” Trump told the crowd. “You know the wall that we’re building on the southern border? I’m your wall between the American dream and chaos,” he added. If Biden is elected in November, he will turn Minnesota “into a refugee camp,” according to President Trump: Think of it, 700 percent increase. So you’re not happy now … Seven hundred percent increase is what they...

On Friday night, Trump spoke to a crowd of Minnesotans in a hangar in Bemidji, and was onstage when news of Justice Ginsburg’s passing broke. At one point, an apparently unaware Trump regaled the crowd with a chunk about the importance of the Supreme Court, and bragged about the two justices he has gotten to select in his first term. “That’s why the Supreme Court is so important, the next president will get one, two, three, or four justices,” Trump said, predicting a calamitous fw years for members of the court. “I had two. Many presidents have had none,” Trump continued. “They’ve had none. Because they’re there for a long time.” At this...

    President Trump is hoping to make a triumphant return to Jacksonville, Florida, the city where his speech to the Republican National Convention was supposed to take place. On Friday, the Trump campaign announced its plans to host a rally at Jacksonville International Airport on Thursday. The 2020 RNC was originally scheduled to take place in North Carolina. The president insisted on allowing a large crowd for his speech in which he would accept his party's nomination for president. After much back-and-forth, the president's speech was moved to Jacksonville. Ultimately, though, the president's speech was moved to the White House lawn.

Many people held signs before the rally that read “peaceful protest,” a reference to what Trump said in the Oshkosh rally about his event being a peaceful protest rather than a rally. Trump isn’t holding official rallies at this time, but the rally today was so large that nearly a thousand people gathered in an overflow space outside, in addition to the people who were in the hangar. Here’s a look at crowd photos and more details about how many people attended the event.Nearly 1,400 People Were at the Rally, According to Media on the Scene GettyPresident Donald Trump addresses supporters during a campaign rally.

    Trump supporters gathered Friday afternoon for President Donald Trump’s first post-RNC rally in Manchester. And among the many signs people have been holding is an apparently new one the Trump campaign distributed. If you look close enough in the above photo, you may notice multiple rally attendees holding signs reading “This is a peaceful protest.” Trump himself has used the line at previous campaign events to troll the media for expressing more concern about the spread of coronavirus at his events than at the protests that have taken place across the country in the past few months. At one point while Trump supporters were waiting, an announcement went out asking people to wear masks, and there was some very noticeable booing: Awaiting Pres Trumps arrival at NH rally, Trump Campaign reminded supporters that wearing masks was required by the states emergency ordinance. In the "Live Free or Die" state,...

    They can’t stand Mayor Bill de Blasio’s policies on school openings, homelessness, crime, bail reform, small business and street-protest looters — but most of all, they can’t stand him. Some 300 anti-de Blasio protesters, more than some of Hizzoner’s presidential campaign crowds, gathered in front of City Hall Park on Saturday to demand he either fix things or step down. “And if you cannot do that,” organizer Scott Lobaido told the crowd, “we call on our Governor Cuomo because we know you can’t stand this man either. “Rid us of this human waste of a mayor.” The protesters carried signs reading, “Step Down de Blasio,” “Defund de Blasio” and “Hey, de Blasio — F–k Me? No, F–k You!” They shouted “Lock him up!” and “Impeach him now!” and blared Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” A highlight of the rally was when Lobaido, who is also an artist, pulled...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Protesters against police brutality marched through downtown Portland Saturday night, continuing a nightly ritual in the city. The protests so far were peaceful, with demonstrators chanting “take it to the streets!" But on Saturday afternoon a rally by a small group of alt-right demonstrators quickly devolved as they traded paint balls and pepper spray with counter-protesters. About 30 people were participating in the Patriot Prayer rally in front of the Multnomah County Justice Center in Oregon’s biggest city. Several were armed with automatic weapons, KOIN-TV reported. The group clashed with counter-protesters through downtown streets, and some counter-protesters blocked the exit of a garage where several Patriot Prayer members had parked.

    Far-right protesters clashed with a church-led unity rally in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, Saturday, leading to arrests and several injuries as fists flew, according to reports. The dueling demonstrations formed after news emerged of a planned rally in the city by the Proud Boys, which has been deemed a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. News of the rally prompted the local First Congregational Church to host an anti-racism vigil in a nearby park. Rev. Nathan Dannison urged the crowd to “work together to remain peaceful and manifest positive energy with each other, to take care of each other, to take care of our own selves and our own safety, and to defend one another,” according to mlive.com. That’s allegedly when a group of Proud Boys, bearing American flags, bright yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” banners and Trump flags, made their way to the park, and allegedly pepper-sprayed the...

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sturgis is on. The message has been broadcast across social media as South Dakota, which has seen an uptick in coronavirus infections in recent weeks, braces to host hundreds of thousands of bikers for the 80th edition of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. More than 250,000 people are expected to rumble through western South Dakota, seeking the freedom of cruising the boundless landscapes in a state that has skipped lockdowns. The Aug. 7 to 16 event, which could be the biggest anywhere so far during the pandemic, will offer businesses that depend on the rally a chance to make up for losses caused by the coronavirus. But for many in Sturgis, a city of about 7,000, the brimming bars and bacchanalia will not be welcome during a pandemic. Though only about half the usual number of people are expected at this year’s event, residents were split...

    Richmond, Virginia, leaders say white supremacists disguised themselves as Black Lives Matter activists to start chaos at a protest on Saturday. But complicating that story is a more intricate entanglement of rival activist groups and police forces—one that has roiled a season of protests across America.  The protest began with a flyer that no one wants to take credit for, advertising a protest in Richmond’s Monroe Park. Without clear organizers, the rally attracted a crowd of demonstrators at different —and sometimes opposing—points on the political spectrum: anti-fascists, a controversial Black Lives Matter group, and members of the “Boogaloo” movement—a loose right-wing and libertarian scene that, nationally, has overlapped with white supremacists.  As the event wore on, some members of the crowd began to target a controversial militia figure at the front of the march, chanting “Fuck Mike Dunn!” The protest all but imploded from there on out, with police arriving...
