Hampshire College has taken the American flag down after snowflakes burned it, and one of the students leading this movement went on Fox News and made a fool himself. It was awesome.

Last week we reported that Hampshire College (the biggest joke of a “school” in the country) put the flag at half staff becauase Donald Trump won the presidency, and then on Veteran’s Day the flag was burned by a student. This made national news and the school was forced to issue some sort of explanation. Instead, President Jonathan Lash sent an email out explaining that they would no longer by flying the Americna flag on campus:
Unfortunately, our efforts to inclusively convey respect and sorrow have had the opposite effect. We have heard from many on our campus as well as from neighbors in the region that, by flying the flag at half-staff, we are actually causing hurt, distress, and insult. Our decision has been seen as disrespectful of the traditional expression of national mourning, and has been especially painful to our Hampshire colleagues who are veterans or families of veterans. Some have perceived the action of lowering the flag as a commentary on the results of the presidential election – this, unequivocally, was not our intent.
After some preliminary consultation with campus constituents (we understand much more is needed), we have decided that we will not fly the U.S. flag or any other flags at Hampshire for the time being. 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. I ask our campus to join me in a commitment to living up to the ideals of our mission: to insist on diversity, inclusion, and equity from our leaders and in our communities; to constructively resist those who are opposing these values; and to actively and passionately work toward justice and positive change at Hampshire and in the world.

Well, he wants you to email him folks. You know what to do.
Let’s just start by saying that this is the least surprising story ever. Here’s a quick rundown on stories we’ve already written about Hampshire College:
- Students threw a fit and demanded that classes be cancelled because of imaginary racism and rapes that never happened.
- A bunch of Hampshire snowflake students complained to the school’s lawyer about our blog, and instead of telling them to fuck off (because of free speech and all) she sent us a letter threatening to sue if we didn’t take the blog down. It’s still there but we anxiously await the lawsuit.
- They gave the world Trigglypuff.
- Trigglypuff and Jennie Chenkin, both students at Hampshire, attempted to shut down a panel of conservative speakers because they didn’t agree with what they were saying.
- Student Jennie Chenkin sent a 2,300 word email to the University of Massachusetts, threatening to sue them because she was videotaped harassing and yelling over the speakers at the Triggering, and she looked like an idiot.
- Students demanded Obama or Beyonce be their graduation speaker, and when the school couldn’t do that and got an Asian doctor instead, they protested and made them get a dude in drag.
- They allowed their graduation speaker to shit all over Hampshire College on graduation day by saying, “Fuck Hampshire College’s capitalist, sexist, rape culture, racist, prison industrial complex, transmisognistic. Simply put, our institution is stuck under white, cishetero patriarchal liberalism. Fuck Hampshire College.”
This is the type of clientele we are dealing with. So yea, this story is not in the least bit surprising. A Hamster College student named Daniel Vogel, who led the movement to get rid of the flag, thought it would be wise to go on Tucker Carlson and explain his thoughts on the flag. Note to SJW’s everywhere – if you get invited to go on Fox News, they’re only inviting you there to do one thing – make a fool of yourself. When you’re a 19 year old like Daniel Vogel from Portland, and you look like a hipster homeless guy from Seattle, you are way, way out of your league with someone like Tucker Carlson. Watch and observe:
“My question is, why is it always rich kids who make that point? Why is it always kids from a $62,000 a year college like Hampshire College making that point?”
Perfect. Because that’s exactly what it is. It’s just a bunch of rich kids who think they’re changing the world by burning a flag. They’re not. If they wanted to change the world for the common man then they’d get a job and work with the common man. Instead they’re spending hundreds of thousands of Mommy and Daddy’s savings to burn flags for four years. Ultimately they will leave college and the world will be in the exact same place as when they got there. They are narcissists having a good time. Nothing more, nothing less.
The best was when Tucker asked him if Hampshire College wants diversity, then how come there is no diversity of thought there. The kid’s reaction was priceless:
Uhhhhhhh……..what do I say? Diversity of thought? What’s that?
Danny Vogel is definitely someone that we should all take seriously:
Danny Vogel is from an all white community (because he’s racist and so are his parents, so this is how he tries to make up for his white guilt – by sharing stuff like this from the first black guy he ever met:
He “demands” that the racist flag come down. Ya got that? Not requests – DEMANDS!! That’s so cute. But the insane part is that the school actually gave into these “demands.” THAT is the problem right there – adults giving into these cry baby pussies. They’re teaching them that they can get what they want by throwing a hissy fit and demanding shit. The best life lesson these pansy ass bitches could ever learn is if the college President told them to sit on top of that flagpole and shove it directly up their ass. But of course they don’t do that because the inmates are running the asylum.

As you can see, he is very oppressed. America is a hard place for circus freaks to live. That’s why he’s majoring in really useful things like music and philosophy:
Anyway, according to President Jonathan Lash, the flag is coming down because they want to, “focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.” In other words, when the American flag is up, none of those issues are addressed. At Hampshire College. A place where those issues are pretty much the only issues that are addressed and everyone feels the same way about them.
My question is, is Hampshire College seceding from the Union? Are they not a part of the United States anymore? Because if they feel like this country is too racist to be a part of, that’s fine. They can stop using our roads, stores, and municipal services. You guys wanna form your own little utopia of sunshine and smiles? Cool. We’ll put up borders and you guys can trade with us and fend for yourselves. But as long as Hampshire College is part of the United States of America, the flag should stay up.
P.S. A veteran took it upon himself today to go to the school and put the flags up himself:
