That same flag that the so-called school lowered was found burned on Veterans Day so the snowflake administration decided to stop flying it a week later. To attempt at seeming fair, they also chose to stop flying other flags. I'm sure ISIS is upset along with the campus Green Peace petunias.
Jonathan Lash, who Jesse Watters of Fox News tried to interview but ducked it, said, "We understand that many who hold the flag as a powerful symbol of national ideals and their highest aspirations for the country--including members of our own community--felt hurt by our decisions, and that we deeply regret."
'Hurt' is such a liberal-ish word. Veterans and other patriots didn't feel 'hurt.' We were angry as hell and we're fed up with these protected little snowflakes burning the flag many of us fought for--yes, and even for their right to burn the flag.
That doesn't mean we're going to sit and take it.
Lash added, "We did not lower the flag to make a political statement . . . We acted solely to facilitate much-needed dialogue on our campus about how to dismantle the bigotry that is prevalent in our society."
And how does that lead to a dialogue about bigotry, especially coming from a cupcake like Lash, who refused to take an interview on the subject of the flag controversy?
Once the "school" stopped flying the flag altogether, veterans and others held American flags and chanted "U.S.A.,"outside the campus in a rally the organizers called a "peaceful demonstration of freedom."
Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno and others at the rally said the school was disrespectful of veterans and current members of the armed forces.
Lash said Friday "Hampshire staff and faculty have led facilitated discussions, I have held multiple focus group sessions, and all of our students, faculty, and staff have been invited to contribute their opinions, questions, and perspectives about the U.S. flag. This is what free speech looks like."
Lash is a cowardly liar who is now caught with his pants down and nothing to show for it. Take that any way you want.
