President of Hampshire University, Jonathan Lash, recently took down the American flag on campus because he said it provoked ‘fear and discomfort’ in his students.
No, we’re not making this up. College students were apparently so upset over our flag that the school removed it, or at least this Lash guy thought they were. Fear and discomfort, wow.
If certain people are triggered by our flag maybe they shouldn’t be here, just sayin’.
Mike Rowe seems to agree and even took it a step further …

Here’s the problem. Tuition at Hampshire College is about $60,000 a year. That’s not a problem because it’s expensive – it’s a problem because 85% of Hampshire students qualify for some form of federal financial aid. That means that We the People are enabling schools like Hampshire to sell a liberal arts degree for approximately $250,000. With $1.3 trillion dollars of student debt currently on the books, I found myself thinking how nice it would be to hear a more persuasive argument from those who will happily take money from a country whose flag they despise.
@theblaze no American flag, no American dollars

Sounds about right, yeah?
