Did you plug it in the right way?
Just kidding. As Bob said, looking at the top of the bit in the table, the spin will be counterclockwise. Thus, at the leading side of the bit exposed by the fence, feeding the stock in from right to left will be feeding against the rotation of the bit. In contrast, feeding from left to right would be with the direction of bit rotation, and would likely grab the wood and fling it off to the right. The danger comes from the fact that the work piece might also pull your fingers into the bit, forcing you to change your user name to Stubby.
The only time you should have stock between the bit and the fence is when cutting a dado, where the bit is hidden beneath the surface of the work piece. In that case, the forces are balanced by the cuts on both surfaces, so no zing into the shop wall, or through the heart of any vampire who may be standing in the wrong spot. Be very careful when doing this, however.
Using push blocks, feather boards, and similar accessories will go a long way toward keeping you safe and intact.
