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.
Heres another video from the counter protest today:
HERE IS HOPE!!! Beautiful to see young people fighting for our US Flag. YES!!!
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.
“...I used to teach at LSU. Let me guess: the grad student is in the English Department? Or was he studying creative writing?”
It was some sort of —— Communications - e.g., a degree only slightly lower in quality than one in education or womyn’s studies.
Benjamin Haas, communication studies graduate student - LOL
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!
> Or was he studying creative writing?
Isn’t that what they call “Journalism” nowadays?
Grad student - womyn’s studies no doubt.
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.
Rather reminds me of the Geico Cave man...
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.
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).
Hey, he had “freedom of speech” to try to burn the flag - and they had “freedom of speech” to tell him he was a pansy and NOT HERE!
No government was involved - and while the throwing of water bottles may have been criminally liable battery - it was well deserved - and I would have done the same.
For myself I think that there should be no penalty for putting out a burning flag via the spilled blood of the tool who set it on fire.
“How come these leftists invariably look like they have been sleeping in a dumpster for the last six months?”
Definately sleeping alone!
All that was missing was the LSU Band playing “Hold that Tiger.”
The video is awesome. Glad to see their are lots of patriots out there. This does give hope that we wont go quietly into the night and that we will fight.
Great! Now if we can just convince them that hippies are running the nation, especially the courts.
It’s a big start though!
Their reaction is utterly predictable and trite.
I wonder if the horse patrol officers will be chastised by their superiors for allowing the patriots to disrupt the flag burning?
Is he a professor?
Pray for America
Didn’t someone desecrate a flag at a baseball game years ago, and Rick Monday of the Cubs grabbed the flag from the people who were damaging it, or getting ready to burn it? This was years ago, but Rick Monday got kudos from it, if I recall correctly.
Yet another example of why we should be proud to be Americans. There are decent people in this country willing to stand up for what is right.
>> This flag burning was to protest an earlier flag burning ...
Protest or compliment?
Actually, I believe this may have occurred last year.
Next time google first, comment 2nd. It was 30 years ago.
Well, darn. I can’t watch the video until later.
Possible, but not likely - at least not publicly.
Just loved the “Go to Hell Hippies” chant, its a beautiful thing. Gives you hope in our young people to stand up for the flag. Go LSU!
Pray for America
A heart-felt THANK YOU! to all who stepped up and helped stop this idiot!
Ahhh- there’s hope yet.
God Bless them!
I read that as "Some hipping burning is not a political event" and got all excited.
You might owe my work a new keyboard - coffee everywhere.
Great rally..... but as Sherri Shepherd would ask... ‘Where are the black people?’
About time. Turn their ugly, stinking protests back on them. Don’t just stand there ... yell, sing, chant whatever but STAND UP FOR THE COUNTRY OF YOUR BIRTH AND THE COUNTRY THAT PROVIDES YOU WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
Would like to see more campuses and young people do the same thing and...they did it WITHOUT VIOLENCE OR LAWLESSNESS. Therein lies the difference.
Americans doing a job that Obamatons won't do.
