A university enabled hissy fit
(The Hill) Hampshire College, a liberal arts school with about students 1,400 in Massachusetts, will no longer fly the U.S. flag on its campus.
“We hope this will enable us to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors,” Hampshire’s president, Jonathan Lash, said in a statement.
A day after the presidential election, the college decided to lower the flag to half staff “as an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally,” Lash said, but that angered some students on campus and in the community.
Instead, the college will not fly any flags on campus “for the time being.”
Hampshire College is a privately funded institute of
Leftist freakouts higher learning indoctrination, and can certainly chose to do this. It is vastly left wing, founded in 1970 on vastly left wing policies. It began a “reradicalization” project in 2004, becoming even more Progressive (nice fascism). In the wake of 9/11, the college voted against the War On Terrorism. This is not to say it is a bad college: the standards for learning are impeccable, by all accounts. They’re just loony lefties, as we can see by the above article.
Funny thing is, there is lots of anti-Semitism going on at Hampshire, just like on other left wing college campuses.
