PROTECT THE FLAG ACT: NO TAXPAYER FUNDS FOR FLAG-BURNING UNIVERSITIES!

Tell Congress:
Pass The Protect the Flag
Act (HR 6433) Today!

Dozens of House Republicans have sponsored a bill to cut taxpayer funds from any publicly funded college that bans the American flag!

HR 6433 - the Protect the Flag Act - is a direct response to Hampshire College in Massachusetts where students took down the school's flag and burned it in protest of Donald Trump's November victory.

Speak out today!

Tell the House Education Committee or the entire Congress to vote YES on the Protect the Flag Act!

In addition to Hampshire College, students at Brown University in Rhode Island and Occidental College in California have similarly dishonored the American flag by ripping it down and burning it.

The delicate snowflake students were "triggered" into behaving as anti-American idiots by the rightful victory of Donald Trump. (Isn't it curious that not a single flag was burned after the elections in 2008 and 2012?)

The Protect the Flag Act was written and sponsored by Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) and so far it has been co-sponsored by 53 Republicans.

The Protect the Flag Act reads in part, "Federal funds may not be made available to an institution of higher education ... that, pursuant to an official policy of the institution to prohibit the display of the flag of the United States by the institution, removes, censors, takes down, prohibits, or otherwise halts display of a flag of the United States."

The decision by Hampshire College administrators to allow students to take down the flag and burn it was a blatant act of censorship and intimidation aimed at conservative students.

If college administrators hate America so much that they will burn the national symbol that is revered by veterans, patriots and everyday Americans, why should that college receive any taxpayer funding from us?

Flags were a symbol of pride, patriotism, love of country and love of family in the Bible. Every tribe in Israel had its own unique standard or flag.

Psalm 20:5 reads, "We will sing for joy over your victory, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners (FLAGS). May the LORD fulfill all your petitions."

Flag desecration is an insult to every American veteran and patriot and it is even a symbol that represents freedom of speech which these leftwing college administrators claim to revere.

Colleges are still welcome to take down the flag and desecrate it under the Protect the Flag Act. The schools just won't continue to enjoy the tax dollars of the American citizens any longer.

Virginia Foxx
2262 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Chairwoman Foxx:

I am writing to you in support of the Protect the Flag Act (HR 6433). This act was written in response to the publicly-funded Hampshire College in Massachusetts, which was the latest college in America where the administrators allowed students to take down the American flag and burn it in protest of President-elect Donald Trump's rightful victory on November 8, 2016. I would note that in 2008 and 2012, in spite of the widespread disappointment of conservative Americans, not a single flag was burned or desecrated in response to both of Barack Hussein Obama's election victories.

The Protect the Flag Act cuts federal funding from any publicly funded college or university that chooses to censor the display of the American flag. This seems right and proper because that American taxpayers support the display of the flag at these institutions. The "protesters" are in fact showing hatred toward the very people whose tax dollars support their education. They should not continue receiving my tax dollars if they refuse to display the American flag.

If you continue to fund a university that allows this fringe behavior to continue, you are in fact violating the First Amendment. You are using my tax dollars to censor the display of the flag! The Protect the Flag Act does not impact a school's ability to take down the flag or desecrate it. The bill simply cuts the school's federal funding until the flag goes back up.

I demand that you co-sponsor and vote in favor of the Protect the Flag Act. This bill is a sensible and measured response to the recent incidents at Hampshire College, Brown University and Occidental College where the snowflake students have demonstrated an inability to accept the outcome of the election like adults. I don't want another dime of taxpayer money to go to any school that refuses to display the American Flag!

 

 

PROTECT THE FLAG ACT: NO TAXPAYER FUNDS FOR FLAG-BURNING UNIVERSITIES!

Tell Congress:
Renew And Pass The
FLAG PROTECTION ACT!

President-elect Donald Trump ignited a firestorm when he suggested last week that burning an American flag should be treated as a criminal act.

We are calling on Congress to do just that - by renewing and this time PASSING the Flag Protection Act which was last proposed in 2005. Burning a flag is done to provoke immediate violence and breach the peace, similar to terrorism, and therefore it should not be protected as "speech!"

Tell Congress that you support the Flag Protection Act and that you expect a vote on this vitally important and patriotic issue
