That apparently is the logic employed by some University of Toledo students when the school’s chapter of Young Americans for Liberty invited Larry Pratt, Executive Director Emeritus of Gun Owners of America, to speak on campus.
Connor Kelley, a member of the school’s College Democrats chapter, tweeted. “Good afternoon. Just a reminder that @ToledoYAL is bringing white supremacist @larrypratt to speak on @UToledo’s campus today.” Then he added, ““Today is the 50th anniversary of MLK’s assassination. The students of @ToledoYAL decided to remember him by inviting a white supremacist to speak on campus.”
Before the speech students tore down the chapter’s posters advertising the event. They replaced them with posters stating, “White supremacy has no place here” and “Black Lives Matter Not White Supremacists.” During the speech, Pratt was constantly and rudely interrupted.
