The Twitter string copied below has been taken directly from the Parents United RI @ParentsUnitedRI social media page. These revelations raise some very disturbing questions:

- Is the goal to turn students into spies and antagonists against their own parents and family members?
- Why is the University of Rhode Island engaged in this “weaponization of government” to silence free speech?
