Howard Dean Compares Trump Election to Kent State Shootings, Selma AL’s ‘Bloody Sunday’
Wednesday on SiriusXM radio’s Urban View channel with host Joe Madison, former Vermont Governor and DNC Chair Howard Dean compared the outrage of young protestors over President-elect Donald Trump’s victory to the Kent State shootings in 1970 when the Ohio National Guard killed four students or the Edmund Pettus Bridge, which was the site ofBloody Sunday in 1965, when policemen beat civil rights demonstrators.
Dean said, “This young generation, which I think is absolutely great, is used to doing everything on the Internet. They don’t really like institutions, they don’t need institutions. If they want a change, they go on the Internet, find half million people who agree with them, they insist on the change and they usually get it. So I really think this election, they’re so disheartened, so down and so tired and discouraged, this may be their Kent State or their Edmund Pettus Bridge, where you finally realize that you’ve got to do something.”
