Fiery WATCH: Tucker Grills College Student on Removal of American Flags
Hampshire College in Massachusetts has removed all American flags from its campus after unnamed students took down Old Glory on the night before Veterans Day and set it on fire.
The school's president said that going forward, "no American flags will be flown on campus. Getting rid of the flag will allow us to focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors," Tucker Carlson reported.
Carlson discussed the incident with student Daniel Vogel, who supported the removal but did not participate in the burning.
"Think about the groups that use the flag, from police officers to the US Army, these are the forces on the ground that make oppression happen," Vogel said.
"If the police and the Army would go away, sensitive college students like you would be eaten alive," Carlson responded, "You find America unfair: What's a fairer country [to be tried for] a felony."
"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," Vogel responded, "US imperial forces are really the main force in the world right now using military force to oppress people."
Carlson asked Vogel why "none of the workers who you claim to be representing ever say that ["the flag represents evil"]. You never see anybody at a trade school burning the American flag: You think at your average HVAC repair school they're burning the flag?"
