University Art Display Desecrates American Flag to be ‘Discussion Starter’
“flagrant disrespect for the U.S. flag”
Pro-life displays are routinely vandalized on college campuses but no one says a word when garbage like this shows up.

University Art Display Impales U.S. Flag, Said To Be A ‘Discussion Starter’
The University of Nevada, Reno is hosting an art exhibit featuring the American flag on the ground, impaled by an axe.
Located in the Jot Travis building on campus, the display features a description from the artist describing the work as falling “outside of the normal realm of any of my previous or planned work in that it carries a strong political message.” The artist says it “captures the symbolic notion of change through the objects presented.”
Campus Reform reported on Monday that the display features several axes on a wall in progressively lower angles, the final of which cuts through an American flag crumpled on the floor.
The display hasn’t gone unnoticed by students who contacted the publication to voice their anger at its message and flagrant disrespect for the U.S. flag.
“Displaying such disregard to the American flag is not a ‘discussion starter’ as the artist and art department claims it to be,” said a senior named Gino, whose last name was not mentioned. The student said “it rather creates a divide–a divide that is being bred on college campuses in the pursuit of political correctness and victimization.”

Here’s a thought:
How about a “discussion starter” with the Mexican flag (for example) impaled by an axe?
Or ISIS flag…or pick any flag you choose. Equal opportunity and all that.
…or a rainbow flag?
