Rejection doesn’t deter white nationalist from bids to speak at K.S.U., other campuses. Reported by Katie Byard. Will white nationalist Richard Spencer speak at Kent State University on May fourth? Legal experts say the school may be able to prevent him from speaking May fourth, and if he wants to a use a room there on another day, it appears he will have to get a campus sponsor. Spencer has threatened to sue Kent State after the school this month denied a request for him to speak there on the 48th anniversary of the day in 1970 when the Ohio National Guard fired into a crowd of protesters on campus. Four people were killed and nine were wounded. Kent State said in a January eighteenth statement that it could not accommodate the request. The statement said the last two weeks of the semester are, quote, always an exceptionally busy time on our campus, with numerous activities marking the end of our academic year.
