Boston Globe: “Three weeks after Hampshire College removed the American flag from campus, the Stars and Stripes was raised again on Friday morning at the liberal arts school in Amherst. The flag’s return comes after a torrent of calls, e-mails, and protests from people angered by its removal eight days after it was set on fire in an apparent protest of the election of Donald Trump as president.”

Hampshire College president Jonathan Lash said by telephone on Thursday night,”I’ve received many e-mails, a lot of them extremely unpleasant.”

All of this started earlier this year with a bunch of rich kids at a $62,000 college in Amherst trying to make a point they claim represents everyone. The problem is all of those trade school students and blue collar workers never burn our flag or insult our military.
