A student defending the banning of the American flag exposes how intellectually-bankrupt today’s college campuses have become.
Last week, following the Presidential election, the American flag was burned on Massachusetts’s Hampshire College campus.
This outrageous act was then followed by an even more outrageous act.
Hampshire College has taken down the American flag after it was burned two days following the presidential election, with the leader of the Amherst campus calling it “a disruptive symbol.”
“After some preliminary consultation with campus constituents (much more is needed), we decided on Friday that we will not fly the U.S. flag or any other flags on our college flagpole for the time being,” Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash wrote on Facebook.
“We hope this will enable us in the near term to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors,” Lash claimed.
On Monday night, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson had on his show Daniel Vogel, a Hampshire College student who supports the removal of the American flag.
Vogel, whose parents are spending tens of thousands of dollars on his ‘education,’ painfully tried to argue his points.
However, after only a few moments, it became clear that Vogel’s arguments could not stand up to rational logic.
