This sure seems like a mature reaction to not getting your way. Truly an embarrassment for an American college.
A Massachusetts college will stop flying all flags on campus after an American flag was burned following Republican nominee Donald Trump’s election victory.
Hampshire College President Johnathan Lash said in a statement to WWLP-TV on Saturday that the college won’t fly any flags for the time being.
“It is a disrespect. That shouldn’t have happened in the first place,” he said.
A college official said members of the campus community initially lowered the flag to half-staff after the Nov. 8 election. That offended other members of the community.
The flag was then found burned on Veterans Day. It was replaced and flown again at half-staff until Friday’s decision to remove all flags.
This clown Lash’s claim to fame is being the author of A Season of Spoils: The Reagan Administration’s Attack on the Environment. He’s referred to as an “expert” on climate change. Perhaps this shithole should hire someone who’s an expert on U.S. history. Lash doesn’t seem to be taking the election results well:
By removing the flag, the college will seek to “focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors,” Lash wrote. Many alleged hate crimes have been reported in Massachusetts and elsewhere since Donald Trump’s election.
Reminder: They’re alleged.
If you’re stupid enough to send your young skull full of mush to this indoctrination factory the annual tab is just in excess of $62,000 a year.
