Normally the moonbats running academia think anything traditional should be eradicated. But one tradition dating back to the 1960s finds favor: whenever sociopathic leftists throw tantrums, they are pandered to obsequiously by educrats who share their radical ideology. Hampshire College is a case in point.
After an election that did not go the way leftists were hoping, the pricey school in Amherst, Massachusetts resolved to fly the flag at half-mast “while the community delved deeper into the meaning of the flag and its presence on our campus.” Worse followed.
On the eve of Veterans Day, students burned the flag that was already flying at half-staff. Educrats responded by resolving not to fly it at all.
President Jonathan Lash made the announcement, proclaiming,
We hope [not flying the flag] will enable us to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.
You could get a saner education amid bayonets and barbed wire at a North Korean reeducation camp.
Tucker Carlson tries and fails to wring sense out of a Hampshire College moonbat who agrees that Old Glory should not fly:
This provides clues as to the nature of the corrosive, anti-American garbage young people are getting fed at outlandish expense in college.
