HUNDREDS of protesters stopped a far left student from torching the US flag today at LSU.

Hundreds showed up to protest the burning of the flag. Here, one guy shows his love of the flag in many forms. (WAFB)



The counter protesters were not too happy with the young leftist.

Thank you to Brandon for the pic.

Hundreds turned out to confront the leftist freak.

Hundreds of patriots chucked water balloons and water bottles at a far left student today at LSU before he could torch the US flag. WAFB reported:

Several hundred people gathered on the LSU campus today and effectively stopped an LSU grad student from burning an American flag on campus.

The student announced Tuesday that he intended to burn the flag. The announcement set off a wave of angry protests on Facebook and talk radio stations.

As the student approached the Parade Grounds at LSU Wednesday, students chanted “USA! USA!”. One man yelled “My brothers died for you!”.

Several people tossed water balloons and water bottles at the man. The graduate student was then escorted away by LSU Police. The flag burning did not occur.

More… Here’s another video from the counter protest today:

I used to teach at LSU. Let me guess: the grad student is in the English Department? Or was he studying creative writing?

As they should. This flag burning was to protest an earlier flag burning where a war memorial flag had been criminally STOLEN and torched (destruction of property).

That earlier flag burning clearly was NOT protected speech yet the flag burners are going to hate this country at every turn anyway.

It was some sort of —— Communications - e.g., a degree only slightly lower in quality than one in education or womyn’s studies.

That far left hippie whackjob can go live in Venezuela where he will be adored by his fellow commies. I don’t get these loons, they hate America but they refuse to leave. Get the hell out if you hate it here so much!

Isn’t that what they call “Journalism” nowadays?

How come these leftists invariably look like they have been sleeping in a dumpster for the last six months?

I don’t know about that. I think Education and Women’s Studies are pretty much the bottom of the barrel.

Can’t wait to hear the liberals reaction to this event. I’m sure we’ll be lectured that we have to preserve freedom of speech, and even when that speech is reprehensible, we must preserve those rights. Remember, we always have to prove to someone how liberal we are.

Personally, I’d have thrown a brick at him as well.

Good to see our side fighting back.

Hippie scum.

I haven’t seen or heard the word ‘chuck’ be used as another word for throwing in a long time.

Good on those students for making that Commie feel like yesterday’s mystery meat.

Also, anyone with greater knowledge on this than I have, wouldn’t any currently serving military personnel get in trouble for attending a political event in uniform?

Proof that hope is not lost, we are not doomed, and the fight is never going to be over until we all agree that it’s over.

He certainly looks like mystery meat.

I guess being a commie leftist means you don't have to care about your appearance (or smell).
