Times sure have changed since CSNY’s “Ohio.” While those Kent State students stood en masse against the war in Vietnam (in sync with a national protest movement that included kids of every race), those playing the multi-colored students in this video are terrified of their own peers—not, in this case, from fear of COVID, but fear of a trigger-happy young “deplorable.” Note too that the stolid cop instructing us on how to “stay safe” from that “active aggressor” is a butch female, giving the authoritarian message in this video a deft “woke” twist.
Let’s remember that, last summer, Ohio State mandated flu shots for all students; and there is now a “popup mass COVID-19 vaccination center” on campus:
So, goodbye Columbus!
