Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. decided to take ban the American flag from their campus after anti-Trump protestors torched it on November 9th. They claim that removing the flag will help people discuss oppression.
Progressive student Daniel Vogel appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight Tuesday and made the case for removing Old Glory.
“Think about the groups that use the flag,” Vogel said. “From police officers to the US Army, these are the forces on the ground that make oppression happen.”
Carlson accurately replied by reminding Vogel that without the military or police “sensitive college students” like Vogel “would be eaten alive.”
“It’s not really about me, its about black people, who, if they were tried for a felony, are much more likely to be put in prison than me for those felonies,” the Hampshire College student said. “US imperial forces are really the main force in the world right now using military force to oppress people.”
“Is there a country that African Americans would have a fairer trial than the U.S.?” Carlson replied. “Do you have perspective on the world?”
Vogel couldn’t name a country but insisted progressives should work to make America a better place.
