Kent State Calls Michigan GOP Official's Call for "Another Kent State" After Student Protests in Berkeley "Abhorrent"

In the wake of protests at the University of California, Berkeley, over a planned speech from alt-right white nationalist Milo Yiannopoulos, Michigan GOP official Dan Adamini invoked one of the darkest moments in American history, calling for "another Kent State."

Adamini, secretary of the Marquette County Republican Party, made the abhorrent, dangerous and offensive statements calling for the death of student(s) on both Facebook and Twitter.
