San Francisco State University: Students Investigated for Stepping on Flags

San Francisco State University students involved in the recent controversy surrounding an anti-terrorism protest where College Republicans stepped on makeshift Hamas and Hezbollah flags are scheduled to appear on today’s The Live Desk with Martha MacCallum on the FOX News Channel. The segment is set to broadcast during the hour-long program, which airs from 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has previously reported -

February 8, 2007—In a profound display of disrespect for free speech, San Francisco State University (SFSU) is investigating its College Republicans for hosting an anti-terrorism rally on campus in which participants stepped on makeshift Hezbollah and Hamas flags.

After students filed a complaint claiming they were offended because the flags bore the word “Allah,” SFSU initiated an investigation .....

The College Republicans’ “offense” took place on October17, 2006, when they held an anti-terrorism protest in SFSU’s Malcolm X Plaza.

During the protest, several members of the group stepped on butcher paper they had painted to resemble the flags of Hamas and Hezbollah. Unbeknownst to the protester's, the flags they had copied contain the word “Allah” written in Arabic script. More....

In 2004 at a voter registration rally, College Republicans were attacked by muslim students and SFSU did nothing.

I guess it is OK for the Anti-War crowd and democrats to have their rallies -

Here is a transcript from Pro-Lynne Stewart Rally, which was sponsored by National Lawyers Guild, Campaign to End the Death Penalty, the International Socialist Organization, the Campus Antiwar Network and one of my favorite traitors, Cindy Sheehan.

SFSU will allow students to participate in rallies with signs reading -

Bush Stop The Killing, Zionism Is Terrorism, End Israeli Apartheid, and signs showing the Star of David symbol next to the Nazi swastika or a light-blue swastika in place of the Star of David in the Israeli flag.

Since San Fran is home to Ninny Pelosi, what else would you expect? I guess it only OK to deface the American Flag in the name of Free Speech!

How disgusting!
