Kent State Shooting Revisited: New Tape Analysis

By Proof

It's not always what you don't know that gets you in trouble, but the things that you "know" that aren't true. For years the meme has stood that innocent, unarmed, college student anti-war protesters were gunned down in cold blood without any provocation. New evidence and analysis of a forty year old audio tape seems to indicate the sound of repeated gunfire preceding the horrific incident.

A noisy, violent altercation and four pistol shots took place about 70 seconds before Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on antiwar protesters at Kent State University, according to a new analysis of a 40-year-old audiotape of the event.

For those of us old enough to remember those days, this certainly puts a different light on an American tragedy.

Not to argue against that, but you'd sure think this kind of info would have come out a long time before now.
Nixon: Wtf?
Commander on scene: We had gunshots.
Nixon: Get me that information so we can put it out there.

This doesn't surprise me. Hoodwinked by Jack Cashill and Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg catalog the progressive lies of the 20th century.

They did not uncover this one, but after reading those books, this sounds quite plausible.

You are right to be skeptical, especially of information that you agree with.

As I said, read Cashill's book and you will see just how libs have hijacked the narrative.

I wasn't as much of a news junkie as I am today. There may have been more, but I don't think it was common knowledge.

According to an email I got:
"Some of us have known... there once was photo evidence of bullet holes in steel sculptures, that were deformed TOWARD the hill the Guardsmen stood on."
