Beto makes example out of Kent State victim

What a terrible way to make a point.  The Kent State University protestors were unarmed when they were shot by the National Guard in 1970.  What is the significance of this visit?  What exactly is the message Beto trying to make with this visit?  "Hell yes we're going to take your guns - and if you resist?  Well, you'll end up with some extra holes like my good friend Alan Canfora here, courtesy of Uncle Sam."
KENT, Ohio -- Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke spoke Wednesday evening at Kent State University about his plans to confiscate assault-style rifles, reform immigration and forgive student loans.
The former Texas congressman spoke on the plaza in front of KSU’s Student Center about how he felt compelled to address gun-violence and racism after the Aug. 3 mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso.
“White supremacists must become the number-one domestic law enforcement priority in the United States of America,” he said.
I get the feeling Beto is one of the crowd that proclaims "only the police and military should have guns," which is ironic because the gun violence of Kent State was caused by the very people who were confiscating guns after hurricane Katrina.
“Alan Canfora was willing to sacrifice his life to make sure that this country did the right thing,” O’Rourke said. Canfora and others like him are “owed credit” for ending the United States’ involvement in Vietnam.
Alan Canfora is a 50 year professional victim and a self-proclaimed "Kent State Tragedy Expert" who dedicated his entire life to... being an unemployed hippy.  But on the bright side he is always available for hire to give lectures and speeches and he will even perform at cocktail parties and bar mitzvahs.

Colion Noir puts it more elegantly than I ever could so I had to post it again:
