Or, of course, you would try to explain why the students are wrong and

This is a really outrageous and slanderous statement. 

Is it really so hard to understand that really well-meaning people can do
things that are quite counterproductive BECAUSE THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND how
society and politics really works? Isn't that pretty much a description of
most historical development and the actions of political forces?

That is the argument that has been made. It may be wrong. But to say it is
siding with the death squads of being an apologist for them is an
intolerable provocation.
