The Massachusetts college that drew nationwide criticism when it stopped flying the U.S. flag on campus following the presidential election says Old Glory is back up. Hampshire College in Amherst returned the flag to full staff on Friday.
The flag was lowered to half-staff after the Nov. 8 election. The flag was found burned on Veterans Day and the college decided to take down all campus flags on Nov. 18.
The decision drew widespread condemnation and a protest by veterans groups and their supporters outside campus.

Funny how fast these hater liberals back down when faced with a PERSONAL financial penalty, isn't it?
Move the whole damn campus to Havana or Addis Ababa (sp?) as far as I’m concerned.
Im getting exhausted from all this winning...im getting plum tuckered out...whew.

Liberals are the most selfish, hypocritical creatures on earth.
Jessie Watters musta made quite an impression. lol
Yeah, well, you better get used to it because it’s just beginning.
Perhaps a few alumni got angry and threatened full cut-off? Though, >90% of Hampshire College graduates are full-fledged socialist, Bernie/Warren supporters, so the loss of support would be minimal.
YOU NEVER disrespect the symbols our Freedoms, The Flag that our Veterans gave us the Freedom to have; The Statue of Liberty that France gave us to welcome people to our Country and live by our Freedoms; and the Bald Eagle that flies over America and keeps a sharp eye on our Freedoms!!!
This is America, built on God, Respected, Loved and the meaning of The American Dream...you live here, you respect our Country, you don't like it, go back to where you came from!!!
This is great! That wussy president is probably having nightmares about Jesse being on his doorstep.
The whole town is run by a bunch of kooks. They fly the UN flag in lieu of Old Glory at City Hall.
The foot in the door was classic. LOL
Speaking of getting tuckered out...have you seen Tucker Carlson’s new show on Fox? He took over for Brit Hume.
Tucker. Kicks. Ass! He’s a little pitbull. Who knew?
Apparently the patriot pressure was too much for these SJW snowflakes.
In any confrontation the flag eventually wins
Maybe the Massachusetts college got word that its federal subsidies were going to be withdrawn, so they could find another country to support them. No flag no federal funds!
Why should we, the taxpayers, fund a university who despises our country? How "dumbed down" are they?
The LIB administrators and the professors there are lunatics. Hopegully, normal parents will withdraw their students and stop funding the LIB playground.

If I thought that Hampshire College would never get another penny of taxpayer money of any kind, I give send a Hammer and Sickle flag to fly in perpetuity so there would never be any doubt in the future as to what was being taught there.
Which they should still do.
Companies are NOT going to hire indoctrinated 'hate America' types AND government jobs are going to dry up.Loving parents need to protect their young from indoctrination at liberal hate schools.
