Hampshire College’s removal of the American flag and is imposing false boundaries on free speech regarding legitimate concerns about the Islamist agenda promote harmful disrespect for the Bill of Rights. Such boundaries diminish public safety and trample free speech.
Islamophobia educational campaigns suppress free speech in manor that jeopardizes public safety. Fear of being branded an Islamophobe played a role in suppressing communications that may have had different results for the lives of 63 people in San Bernardino and Orlando:
Townhall.com Neighbor Didn’t Report Suspicious Activity of San Bernardino Killers For Fear of Being Called Racist

According to a local Los Angeles news report, a neighbor of San Bernardino massacre suspects Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik didn’t report suspicious activity at their apartment for fear of being accused of racism.
This is the same politically correct culture that lead to the Ft. Hood shooting when Nidal Hassan, who had been spouting violent Islamic propaganda to neighbors on post and reaching out to Al Qaeda, was ignored for fear of “Islamophobia” accusations.

Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer, said Mateen frequently made homophobic and racial comments. Gilroy said he complained to his employer several times but it did nothing because he was Muslim. Gilroy quit after he said Mateen began stalking him via multiple text messages — 20 or 30 a day. He also sent Gilroy 13 to 15 phone messages a day, he said.
“I quit because everything he said was toxic,” Gilroy said Sunday, “and the company wouldn’t do anything. This guy was unhinged and unstable. He talked of killing people.”
The desire not to be labeled a racist or Islamophobe will likely result in more people not being willing to report suspicious behavior in the future.
Tragically, Islamophobia campaigns are having a chilling impact on the free speech of Americans and helping jihad.
Hampshire College’s removal of the American flag demonstrates hate for America that could have a lasting and destructive influence on the minds of their students and the people in the surrounding community.
Please restore the American flag to its rightful place and abandon plans to indoctrinate students with harmful false narratives about the Islamist agenda.
