Broward College Prof Uses American Flag as Doormat in ‘Art’ Display
“I am not sure what the message is they are trying to give”
Obama’s old neighborhood pal Bill Ayers must be happy about this. He was once famously photographed standing on the flag.

Prof uses American flag as doormat in college ‘art display’
Students and community members at Broward College (BC) are outraged after an American Flag was used as a doormat by a professor during an art exhibition hosted by the school.
“So it appears this is ok to do at central campus Broward College. This is a American Flag Painted white and cut in half and used as a door mat,” BC student and Marine Corps veteran Jess Karcher wrote on Facebook, accompanied by photos of an American Flag painted white, cut in half, and lying on the ground.
“I am not sure what the message is they are trying to give, but there was a camera taking pictures of people unknowingly steeping [sic] on it,” Karcher continued.
The photos were taken by Karcher at the 2018 Full-time Faculty Exhibition on Jan 26, an event BC’s website describes as an “eclectic show,” featuring “painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and multi-media installation.”
Angel Clyman, a spokesman for the Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery, the location of the exhibition, identified the artist behind the display as BC Assistant Professor of Art Lisa Rockford.
Shortly thereafter, Karcher took it upon himself to write a letter to BC President David Armstrong.
“I am sorry to have to write this letter to you, but I am a student at Broward College Central Campus and I am a disable [sic] Marine Corps Veteran,” Karcher wrote, adding that one of the artists at the exhibit displayed “an American Flag cut in half” that is “either bleached or painted white laying on the ground on the entrance to the exhibition.”

We stain our souls with blood so that Professor Rockford has the luxury of using our flag as a doormat.
And Fen slips a little closer to the Dark Side.
That’s disgraceful … I hardly know what to say about these types of things anymore … I just wish I could rip these fools a new AH.
