Massachusetts, birthplace of the American Revolution. . . .

My face and palm have been hanging out with each other for what feels like my entire adult life . . . .

Anti Americanism has run rampant on college campuses. Festering cesspools of sedition. Banning your own Nation's flag???

Who wants these degenerates that are one step away from being terrorists working next to you or serving you when they get out of their communist indoctrination camps?

Hate their flag but love those loans. Simple solution if you ask me.

Do you need me to find you a safe space ?


What does safe spaces have anything to do with flags or me?

That seems a bit off the topic to me.

The fact is that the original source intentionally lies about why the flags were taken down to push a well-known agenda they have.

If folks want to cry about CNN, MSNBC and others -- I have just as much of a right to point out obvious spin, lies and deceit myself.

Considering this sentiment is being bred well within the walls of the U.S ...What do you think is the solution ? I mean other than a lobotomy ...

So, in other words, from your own link, the college lowered the flag due to claims that it represents racism and hatred, and then decided to just remove it completely... Oh yeah, that's totally different than the RT story. Total spin there.
And yet you make a thread claiming that didn't actually happen and use that argument to attack RT, despite your own source claiming otherwise.
Good job confirming RT's reporting accuracy!

If you read the myraid of other news stories, you'll see that many compromises were tried to keep both Trump fans, and anti-Trump fans happy. Nothing they did seemed to stop the problems.

So, because apparently no one was happy with anything they did -- they just took all the flags down.

Kind of like when two kids fight over a toy, and the parent takes the toy away.

That simple.

None of these "enemies of the state" are capable of representing themselves intellectually, so they look for a symbol to objectify their boundless emotional tirades.

I feel like a First World slave in a Third World nightmare.

Leave it up to Russia Today to spin a story about a bunch of children who can't agree over a flag (on BOTH sides)

It seems like there was a bunch of upset people on both sides, so they threw their hands up and said, "No flags at all then, since none of you guys can seem to get along without arguing about it!"


Good job contradicting yourself too.

Yes, they decided to remove it because veterans and their families were upset by the flag being at half staff.

NOT because the college deemed the flags to be racist and hateful, which is what the Russia Today article claims.

It is different than the Russia Today story.

Its lying by omission of the facts. Come on man )))

I ask because the entire spectrum of media is bias, they all bow down to the highest bidder...Both sides are guilty of spinning it their way....

The American flag should never be allowed to become part of the snowflake agenda.....patriotism is needed now more than ever unfortunately it would seem not many understand what that even means...

The people of the U.S are on a collision course with failure and it has a lot to do with the lack of understanding especially from the younger generations.......

I would like to see good folk like yourself not get drawn into the left right rubbish...in my personal opinion if you are so polarized by one side you should go and join the military and you will ordered to march left and then right....perhaps then you may see between the lines...until then i wont hold my breath

How about telling them all to behave themselves or lose their free government grants. There are plenty of poor kids who deserve to be there that don't hate the country they are getting educated in.

Parents/Kids and adult students will have to be the one to stop this. They will have to stop registering their children, or as an adult stop registering at colleges that do these things. Let enrollment take a nosedive and watch their tune change....

I don't argue:

1. flag burning -- I am a patriot and burning the flag is wrong

2. lowering the flag arbitrarily -- that is wrong, and I wouldn't support it

HOWEVER, the college did not remove all flags because they, themselves the college deemed them "racist and hateful".

The college apparently did some stupid stunt to placate some of these "snowflakes" and that upset a group of OTHER people.

So now we have a whole of angry people. Vets, families of vets, and these "snowflakes". Everyone's upset, everyone is arguing about flags.

So, the college just took all the flags down because they had enough. Not because the college itself thought they were racist or hateful.

RT News:
>College lowers flag to half-staff because students are upset and feel it's a symbol of racism and hatred after the election
>Veterans and other students get upset by the flag being lowered to half-staff
>College decides to get rid of flag entirely so as to not offend anyone

Which part of that was a lie, exactly? Go on, prove to us that RT News is lying. I'll wait.

They can get off of American grass.
Instead of providing taxpayer tuition, give them all one way plane tickets to the socialist utopia of their own choosing.
