Insane: College Has Removed All American Flags From Campus
In a crazy over-reaction to a moron student lighting a flag on fire, Hampshire College will be taking down ALL American flags down and removing them from campus.
Tucker Carlson takes on a student who advocated for the removal of the flag:
Here’s more about the story from WWLP:
Now to another story that we’ve been continuing to update. Hampshire College has decided not to fly any flags on campus, after an American flag was burned at the college.
In a statement to 22News, Hampshire College’s president Johnathan Lash announced neither the American flag nor any other flags will be flown on campus.
This comes after the school received harsh criticism from veterans and community members over the flag that was burnt.
“It is a disrespect. That shouldn’t have happened in the first place.”
Following the presidential election, the campus flag was lowered to half-staff, which offended veterans and some community members and then, someone set it on fire the night before Veterans Day. Many found the gesture to be disrespectful.
Christopher Benedetto, Richfield Ct, told 22News, “They can be upset, but, they don’t have a lot to worry about. They’re going to a pretty nice school. I’m sure things are pretty good for them. They need to show it a different way, basically.”
Bleh. Once again Tucker Carlson shoots for red meat points from his audience instead of honestly debating the issue of American exceptionalism. Unfortunately his interlocutor also seems like a complete moron – and he’s training to be an American History teacher. Really makes me want to give up altogether.
