A few days back, former host of Dirty Jobs and national treasure Mike Rowe called schools that refuse to fly the American flag yet are happy to accept federal money hypocritical. He argued that such schools, pointing out Hampshire College in particular, benefit from taking students’ federal financial aid because it allows them to raise their tuition costs.
His responses stemmed from an event in which students at Hampshire College burned an American flag, resulting in the president removing all flags from campus. His opinions about Old Glory seemed to strike a nerve with one of his fans, and she thought it a sound idea to let him know about it, calling him “blindly patriotic”. We’re guessing she regrets it.
