    Angry Mob Chases Would-Be Flag Burner Off LSU Campus


    NEWSCORE - A mob of angry protesters chased a would-be flag burner at Louisiana State University (LSU) off campus Wednesday to chants of "USA, USA."

    Graduate communications student Benjamin Haas had earlier been given permission by the school to burn the flag. But because he lacked a local burn permit, he agreed instead to read a statement in an area of the university known as free speech alley.

    Fox News reports that Haas' actions were in response to the arrest of another student, who was charged with taking and burning the American flag once posted at LSU's War Memorial. That incident came just hours after Osama bin Laden's killing by US Navy SEALS last week.

    So let's get this straight, some pathetic low life steals a war memorial flag, burns it, get's arrested, and this moron decides to stand in solidarity with him? Glad to see his fellow students come out and let him know what they thought of his... beliefs.

    Tossing bottles was uncalled for, but standing up and being heard was aces. Go LSU!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    lol u need a burn permit hahaha.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You gotta spell it right. I spent 5 years at LSU, I never saw this kind of craziness. The nuttiest people on free speech alley were the Christians...

    I'm glad they chased him off.

    I would think that the original a-hole was probably arrested for stealing and burning w/o a permit, not for the act of burning the flag. What was this guy's true motivation?

    Oh yea, we don't **** around down here. That flag burning **** won't fly in Louisiana. Multiple military bases in our state, combined with a strong sense of national pride (even with bozo-n-chief in office) will ensure that any flag burning attempts that are made public will be met with fierce resistance.

    Good on 'em.
    So follow me into the desert

    If this individual was trying to burn a Koran here is what would happen-

    1.They would be wanting him arrested for hate speech
    2.They would be calling him a racist,hate monger and or bigot.
    3.They would say how dare he put the lives of Americans over seas in jeopardy,as though they were somehow equally pissed when someone release Abughurab photos or printed a bogus Koran flushing story.
    4.Maybe some Euro-trash saying how they are glad that their country has hate speech laws.
    5.SOme terrorist salad tosser would be suggesting that he should be face justice in the middle east
    6.Politicians would be condemning him.
    7.The news media would be on this story like a fat bitch on a twinkie.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yeah, more govt red tape. You need one to light a fire under the asses of your local politicians.
