Student Destroys 9/11 Memorial Flag Display, Citing US Imperialism


Flag SC Student destroys 9/11 memorial flag display, citing US imperialism

Protesters at Middlebury College in Vermont uprooted 2,977 flags that were part of a 9/11 memorial display on Wednesday.

The flags symbolize each of the 2,977 people who died in the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001. The College Republicans and Democrats have jointly planted the flags in a field on campus every year for the last decade.

But this year, Ben Kinney — president of the College Republicans — happened to be walking by the display as 5 protesters finished removing the last of the flags and placing them in trash bags.

“At first, I thought the group was comprised of College Democrats helping put the flags away before the rain rolled in, but then I realized what they were doing,” said Kinney in a statement to The Middlebury Campus.

The protesters — at least one of whom was a student — explained that they were “confiscating” the flags in order to take a stand against U.S. imperialism.

  1. Let them live under communism, which Obummer is pushing for…then they'll realize what a good thing they have in capitalism. People today are stupid and i see it in some of my friends. they really need to experience communism.

    As a full blood Native, I believe I can speak for most Natives when I say we DENOUNCE Amanda Lickers and her actions. What she did was not only wrong but disgusting. (I can't say how I really feel)

    Native burial grounds are a sacred place used to honor those who go before us. What a fitting tribute to those heroes who lost their lives on 9/11 to hatred.

    What these two 'people' did was just continue the hate. THEY defiled our burial ground, and the memory of those lost on 9/11, NOT the American flags or those who placed them there. They should be expelled if a student and forced to replace EVERY American flag they removed back to their original position. They should then give a public apology to everyone who lost a loved one to the hatred on 9/11.

    (If you are a Native, or any other American, and you disagree with me, feel free to let me know with a down vote. I would honestly welcome it)

  3. So much for a college education and assumed intelligence; if these kids are so smart, why would they be ugly idiot libturds??

  4. Those anti-America punks are damn lucky I wasn't there to see them desecrate a 9-11 Memorial…

    This is what is being taught in college, what a waist of time, money, and minds full of mush. He was probably born in Kenya.
