In 1970, the Ohio National Guard were sent onto Kent State campus to quell student demonstrations against the escalation of the Vietnam War.
The main objective was to prevent students from gathering into groups of more than two or three because of the volatility of the students’ speech.
Their speech was considered hostile, provocative and unjust.
I submit present-day students have taken on the guise of the Ohio National Guard – inhibiting free thought and speech on campuses by those they have judged hostile. How pathetic.
Never miss a local story.
