I love the logic here. Hampshire College has banned the American flag from campus. Why? Well, there's the reason they're saying and the real reason.
Let's have some fun with the reason they're saying, shall we?
Hampshire College has decided not to fly any flags on campus, after an American flag was burned at the college.OK. So, after the election, the college flew the flag at half mast. That's some first rate asshattery right there. But then some students then burned the flag on campus, which upset many people. So they sat that in order for there to be no more flag burnings which upsets people, they're banning the American flag, y'know, so nobody gets upset.
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.
So they're banning the flag to protect people from being upset so don't be upset.
But the problem is not the flag. The problem is the students burning the flag. That's the part that the college should be doing something about. How about a consequence or two for the students which took part in this shameful act?
Look, the college itself clearly has no affinity for the flag as they decided to place it at half mast after the election. And this puts them right where they want to be. This is something they've wanted to do, being the first in some hippie cause like banning the flag.
Until parents wise up to this game, we're going to continue losing this country. Please do not send your children to colleges and universities like Hampshire College. These academics and administrators delight in turning these children against you. Heck, never mind delight in it, they see that as their job. Seriously. And we're paying them for it!
We all talk about defunding Planned Parenthood all the time. And we should. But by sending your children to colleges and universities like this one, you're creating the next pro-choice generation. You're creating voters who will support funding Planned Parenthood.
