“burned in protest of the worldwide occupations, destructions, and enslavements”
Too bad Rolling Thunder didn’t know about this in advance. They stopped a similar event at Dartmouth last year.
Campus Reform reports:
‘Revolutionary’ students burn American flag at Beloit College
Members of the Young Revolutionary Front chapter at Beloit College burned an American flag on campus in what they say is “revenge against the corrupt establishment.”
On May 7, YRF Beloit held a public flag burning on campus to protest “the worldwide occupations, destructions, and enslavements committed against the people of this shared world by the United States of America since the end of the second world war.”
In its Facebook profile biography, YRF Beloit describes itself as “An organization dedicated to combating injustice wherever it thrives,” though student Gabriel Keane told Campus Reform that he believes the group has no more than three members.
Following the flag burning, the YRF chapter posted flyers around campus explaining their actions, declaring that it will not “play by the rules placed by the oppressor” and calling for anyone “discontent with this nation’s racist, imperialist, nationalist aggression, and its corrupt administration” to join the organization.
“The flag of the USA was burned in protest of the worldwide occupations, destructions, and enslavements committed against the people of this shared world by the United States of America since the end of the second world war,” one of the flyers explains, claiming that “the low estimate is 20 million innocent deaths from more than 37 ‘victim nations’ since the end of the 2nd world war.”
It further alleges that the U.S. “has spent between 7,000,000,000,000 $ [sic] and 15,000,000,000,000$ (Trillion) dollars on the so-called War on Terror, and devastated vast regions of the globe in its rampant crusade of aggression.”
