I wasn’t aware of that flag desecration at the University of Maine, Farmington....western Maine. U. Maine’s main campus is in Orono, north of Bangor.
Most Maine resident’s do not have a college degree. As for the flag, this state is flag waving country. My experience has been that people in Maine are very pro-military and love the flag. I’ve seen plenty of roads, including rural roads, lined year round with American flags. In my area, many homes fly the flag in their front yards.
When a soldier dies in Iraq or Afghanistan, it’s a big story on the news, flags are lowered statewide, and vast numbers of people turn out for the funeral. Then there’s the troop greeters at Bangor International Airport, welcoming every flight of returning troops no matter the hour of the day or night.
Please don’t judge the people of the entire state of Maine on the disgusting actions of a handful of moonbats on a college campus. Those flakes are the exception, not the rule.
I’ve been welcomed back at the Bangor airport several times. Usually early am hours. Always brought tears to my eyes.
