Hampshire College Snowflake Defending Burning Of USA Flag, Taking Flag Down Permanently, Is LOL Funny

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:

Submitted by: Jonathan Lash
Some months ago, the Hampshire College Board of Trustees adopted a policy of periodically flying the flag at half-staff to mourn deaths from violence around the world. Earlier this week, in the current environment of escalating hate-based violence, we made the decision to fly Hampshire’s U.S. flag at half-staff for a time while the community delved deeper into the meaning of the flag and its presence on our campus. This was meant as an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally, including the many U.S. service members who have lost their lives.  Our intention was to create the space for meaningful and respectful dialogue across the multiplicity of perspectives represented in our community.

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.

Please send any comments or questions to me at

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.

This is Edd Han


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:

    Instead of free college for these pussys like they want to adopt…we should have all college bound kids serve two years in the military like so many European countries do,then free schooling . That might enlighten these little snowflakes.

Biology sucked so you dropped out because you knew better than everyone who told you not to, and now that you’re old and your earning potential is maxed out at $40k a year, all that resentment is spilling over onto college kids. “Those fucking idiots with their educations! Every educated person ends up being a liberal! Must be a conspiracy! Let’s hit them with heavy things, that’ll teach em to be smarter than me!” Lololol gimme a break, whatta maroon

    My hope is that one day soon, SJW nation gets the dose of reality it so richly deserves. I also hope that when it happens, there are videos of them collectively shitting their pants and crying for their mommies. Their whole construct and belief system is a joke. If he truly felt his parents wealth was blood money earned by the pillage of others, we would never have heard of him. But it’s obvious he’s fine with it, because any tax payer funded assistance he receives is the same thing, so it’s a win/win for little Danny Vaginogel.

    Good for him. His parents will shell out 70k for 8 years so when/if he graduates he can hopefully land a job as a History teacher at Colrain High School and can bank a whopping 32k a year salary.

    Reason number 2,069 why I voted for Trump.

    If you got rid of financial aid, colleges would be a whole lot more affordable. It is overpriced because it is being subsidized by the taxpayers. Then you have losers like this college president who would probably expel someone for hoisting an American flag because America is so evil. If we are so bad, then why does everyone from a horrible country want to come here and then make this a horrible country?

He did keep telling me he was married but I never gave that at a thought. I said I was married as well just to see what he would say. So he ignored me so I got so furious.

            For now on I will make his life a living hell and come in here under several different accounts no matter what he says. This is how much I hate him and want him to die a slow painful death with a big fat cock with pieces of glass sticking out of it in his ass. I love to think about these things I really do. This is all I think about everyday.

She’s a neglectful mother who “used to” shoot heroin BUT still smokes cigarettes in the car with her innocent 8 year old son. She’s on welfare and lives right on Main Street in Athol. So fucking fitting! A cum bucket of a whore DATING a loser who can’t buy groceries and or pay for their dog to go to the vet, so they keep him sick. She tried being my “friend” for a long time on Facebook when I noticed she would get very angry when I used my real pictures on my profile…. Hmmmm then she started acting strange… ugh this story is too long. Anyhow, she rather everyone here dislike me and she was behind MANY of the fake accounts of myself, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s behind some of the Bob accounts because she hates him just as much as me now… lol

            Gross bitch. Nasty ass unkempt fucking teeth and everything. I can’t believe I almost associated myself with her. She keeps fucking around and I’m going to make a whole bunch of accounts with her pictures, her boyfriends Robert, her family everyone… I can literally make her life hell here if I really wanted to…

His life will be a total failure after he leaves hampshire with a useless degree and nobody hires his sorry ass. Even trigglypuff will shun him as less of a man and sorry excuse for a SJW. Ultimately, his demise will be from an AIDS riddled heroin needle in his parents basement. The American flag will still be flying high everywhere as he lay in the fetal position bewildered and alone wondering where he went wrong as he slips into glorious death. Tutrtleriders from everywhere will visit his grave to plant small, but symbolic American flags around his grave in a fitting tribute.

    Some people have very long and vivid memories. This probably will bite them in the future, to say the least in some way. That’s just about guaranteed !

      The pendulum swings constantly. These septic tanks of political propaganda live or die on Federal dollars and the Federal Education budget and Pell Grants need to be cut. Hampshire Collge isn’t doing itself any favors. Should be fun to watch real soon.

    White, cishetero patriarchal liberalism is still my favorite SJW buzzword mashup I’ve ever heard. And when did “cis” become a thing? Is that even a real word? Seriously, does it have some sort of scientific meaning or did they make this shit up?

    I hope somebody goes up that pole in the middle of the night and puts up a white flag — denoting surrender!

      Or an ISIS flag. How do you think this crew would like to live under ISIS? Would that be better than the freedom they don’t think they have in the US?!!

    He schooled that “future teacher” badly. Imagine him being my kid’s history teacher? Ugh.

    I do give him a little credit for going on Fox News though.

      My parents told me to grow a set of balls too. You can all see how well that advice worked out.

    Only the president of the United States or the governor of the state may order the flag to be at half-staff to honor the death of a national or state figure. In addition to the traditional half-staff salutes, the United States Flag Code mentions the use of our flag for honoring leading citizens such as Martin Luther King, Jr.
    There are occasions when the flag will be lowered for significant figures whom are not U.S. citizens. Examples include: Nelson Mandela in 2013, Pope John Paul II in 2005, King Hussein of Jordan in 1999, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in 1965, United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold in 1961
    Private citizens and non-government buildings may choose to fly their flags at half-staff to honor more local leaders. The Flag Code does not exclude any citizen, whether belonging to an organization or not, whether they are recognized very locally or regionally. Examples of deceased citizens who might be honored with by lowering the flag to half-staff include local religious leaders, youth leaders, honored teachers or sports coaches, local politicians, or a local hero. There need be no authorization from the government for the private sector (non-government) to use the Flag to honor any citizen.
    It is important to note that the Flag Code is a code, it is intended to provide guidance and is not obligatory. It carries no civil or criminal penalties for “misuse” of the Flag. Individuals are not acting illegally when using the flag according to their own rules. The Flag Code is only required to be followed on public or government buildings.

      The Flag is only lowered by an Executive Order and for the death of someone important. Lowering it for grandma who did not serve doesn’t count.

    They should fly that long haired shit bag on the flag pole out front for starters.

    The “adopted policy” this so called institution took is a complete joke. As previously noted here and other outlets, the call to fly our flag at half mast is determined by a governor or the president. The fact that this sorry excuse for a school took it upon itself to fly the flag at half mast to pacify the snowflakes that are pretty much running things is a disgrace.

    Per usual, every bullshit breaking story as of late is the SJW movement re-writing the rules as they go, looking to gain allies in the process.

    We live and breath on American soil, but yet there are people, groups, and sorry excuses for universities condoning flags to be burned, and refusal to fly the flag.

    Whether we like the outcome of the election or not, every responsible person had to get up the next day and go to work, still had a mortgage, bills, tuition payments, etc.

    Quit the bitching and protesting already, and get a fucking life snowflakes………You have Trump for the next 4 years. Good luck getting a job when the pictures of your flag burning protest days surface during a job interview.
