Here’s a note for left wing college students. If you announce that you’re going to burn the American flag on campus, a large group of veterans on motorcycles could show up to stop you.
The College Fix reported:
Rolling Thunder shows up when student suggests he’ll burn a flag on Inauguration Day
Dartmouth College student Timothy Messen wrote a blistering column Thursday that said without evidence that President Donald Trump’s November election victory was followed by “an increase in sexual and racial violence.”
Citing Trump’s past suggestion that flag burning be made a crime – which is not going to happen – Messen told his readers that “the best way to defend our rights is to exercise them.” He invited everyone to a possible flag-burning on campus Friday to coincide with Trump’s inauguration.
Whoops. The Dartmouth reports:
Members of Rolling Thunder New Hampshire Chapter 2, a Claremont-based branch of Rolling Thunder arrived at the middle of the Green prior to the student demonstration. …
“We had heard a rumor from somewhere that someone was going to be up here protesting, burning flags,” said Jim Campbell, a member of Rolling Thunder New Hampshire Chapter 2. “So we put some emails out, some texts, and got a bunch of guys to come up and brought up our flags to show our support for not burning the flag.”
Maybe American veterans should be put in charge of higher education.
It couldn’t hurt.
