Georgia college cancels classes in advance of pro-flag demo

A college in Georgia that featured a protest last week where demonstrators trampled on the American flag has canceled classes in advance of what is expected to be a huge pro-flag rally.

Valdosta State University students were told that all classes on Friday, April 24 were called off because of a counter demonstration to support the US flag. The protest last week got interesting when an Air Force veteran picked the flag up off the ground and wouldn't give it back to the demonstrators. Police cited her for tresspassing when she wouldn't give up the flag or leave the scene.

Fox News:

The same university that detained a veteran for stopping protestors from desecrating an American flag is now shutting down in the anticipation of thousands of American flag supporters.

Valdosta State University issued a statement cancelling “all classes and on-campus events scheduled for Friday, April 24.” Television station WALB reports as many as 4,000 people are expected to rally, one week after a small crowd desecrated Old Glory.

A VSU student tried to justify the disrespect of the American flag by saying, “When a slave understands his situation and understands he doesn’t want to be in slavery, he does not respect or revere anything his slave master has put in front of him.”

Air Force Veteran Michelle Manhart called the university when she previously heard about protesters planning to walk on and desecrate the flag, but nothing was done. Last week, when she heard it was happening again, she decided to do something about it. 

Manhart snatched the flag from the protestors. Campus police ordered her to drop the flag, but she refused and was issued a criminal trespass and a lifetime ban from the public university.

It was later found out, according to Albany NBC station WALB, that police found a gun in a bag belonging to one of the protestors, Eric Sheppard. Police have been searching for Sheppard, but he remains on the run, despite pleas by his father to turn himself in.

Meanwhile, Manhart said she had no regrets defending the American flag.

“I have seen that flag on caskets returning home,” she said. “It was just the thought of those demonstrators standing on someone’s casket. I was so internally frustrated.”

How did that guy who fancies himself a slave get into a college - any college? Isn't there some kind of minimum level of intelligence required?

If that guy was admitted, perhaps they would admit those chimps that a judge just ruled have human rights. 

The good people of Valdosta are going to teach those dirtbags who trampled on the flag a thing or two about respect. But if the anti-flag protestors have the IQ of the guy who thinks himself a slave, the lesson will go right over their heads.
