  • Military Haters at University of South Dakota

    Would you give radicals at the University of South Dakota an “A” or an “F” for how they treat our military after reading this blog post?

     

     

    Radicals at the University of South Dakota have disrespected the men and women in uniform with hateful protests.

     

    These radicals erected upside-down American flags in the ground in front of a veterans’ memorial at Old Main of the university on Sunday.

     

    The veterans’ memorial was designed to help students remember those who have sacrificed their lives for the cause of freedom.

     

    But a memorial honoring our veterans was enough to anger extremists at the school. In addition, anarchists at the university erected posters with some dubious “facts” that read: “U.S. Forces have killed more civilians than all ‘terrorist’ actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, now multiply that by 157, that’s how many civilians have been killed because of U.S. Action (over 185,000).”

     

    These are the same radicals who lecture conservatives as being intolerant and “hateful.”

     

    They are the same radicals who kick ROTC off many campuses in America and treat students willing to serve like trash.

     

    For that, Young America’s Foundation gives radicals and extremists at the University of South Dakota an “F!”

    • I am the person that took down the Student Against the State’s display. You added things into this article that shouldn’t be there, and that’s unfortunate. “Leftist administrations everywhere love claiming “hate-speech””. Hello, this is South Dakota you’re talking about here! You decided to add that without actually knowing. “why doesn’t the University of South Dakota do more to create an atmosphere where all viewpoints are accepted?” What right field did you pull this out of? USD is a place where all viewpoints are accepted. You just decided to rail against something when you did not have any facts to work with. That display made me sick with anger when I saw it, and when I took it down, it did not make me feel any better. Yes, sats slapped all veterans in the face at USD, yet when you make your assertions without first checking with the people that were there, it furthers no purpose. I expect you will change this article, in fact, I am calling you out. Thank you for having the concern for our group and our vets, but don’t insert wild assertions that are vets on USD do not hold.
