The association between Richard Nixon and Kent State has always revolved around the university’s inability to control war protestors with a proclivity towards violence. But the National Guard won’t have to be called out to remind people of Nixon after the recent Julio Pino controversy. Memories of Tricky Dick will flow naturally from Kent State’s completely unnecessary cover up of the rabid terrorism supporter – the one who prefers to be known as “Professor.”
In Kent State’s recent defense of Pino, the administration tried unsuccessfully to establish at least three important points. Below I have restated these three points and explained why they are all little more than camel poop in a desert of administrative obfuscation:
1. There is no evidence linking Julio Pino to the Jihadist “Global War” blog.
One of the problems Kent State had with the blanket denial of Pino’s involvement with “Global War” is that his department chair had already admitted that Pino had admitted to him that he “contributed” to the blog. While this information did not hit the mainstream media until the day after the Kent State denial, I already knew it. The $64,000 question is: “How could the Kent State administration not have known it?”
And, if they really did not know, does this mean that Pino’s chair knew but did not tell the administration?
While the denials of Kent State have mainly hurt the university, there are other victims. One is conservative columnist Mike Adams. When the university said there was no link between “Global War” and Pino they were calling into question my journalistic integrity. And Pino supporters even wrote my bosses accusing me of defamation.
Now that the smoke has cleared, I am demanding an apology from Kent State. Until I get one, just send your Kent State alumni donations to the following address:
Attention: Mike Adams
P.O. Box 319
Wrightsville Beach, NC, 28480
Please note that a) no ticking packages will be opened and, b) $.25 will be refunded to Julio Pino in order to compensate for any damages I may have caused to his professional reputation. I will even let him keep the change as a gesture of good will.
2. There is no evidence to suggest that Julio Pino has been engaged in pro-terrorist activity using Kent State resources.
