This is disgraceful actions on the part of the college - but what do you expect from Mass college! This is another example of adults caving to cry babies; the American flag is as much a symbol of this nation as the Eagle is and should be respected.

Their is one big difference, you can legally destroy an american flag, but it is a crime to kill a Bald Eagle or even posses one of its feathers.
U.S. Code › Title 16 › Chapter 5A › Subchapter II › § 668
16 U.S. Code § 668 - Bald and golden eagles

Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)

This is what they are teaching the Youth and why there is so many in Problems with the Buttercups...
No respect and Total lack of a Grasp of reality...
