Gaul explained that John Smeaton, vice provost of student affairs, ordered flags removed so non-American students would not feel uncomfortable. "We have such a diverse student body and emotions are so high right now. The idea was to keep from offending some of our students, and maybe the result was much to the contrary," Gaul said.

Oh, aren't we just sooooo sensitive. After something like this, this maggot was worried about offending non-American students??????? Haven't we taken this 'sensitivity' way too far.

Fudge that. THIS IS THE UNITED STATES!!!!!!! If the flag offends you: GET OUT. If you fear that the flag might be offensive: GET OUT.

I think John Smeaton should be censured. What an @$$hole.

What gardenWeasel said. If you don't like America, our our flag, or have a problem saying the Pledge Of Alligance, then GET THE FUCK OUT!!!

In-freaking-credible! I just can't believe the depth the stupidity and "PC" of these IDIOTS. I wonder if anyone did this sort of thing in the wake of Pearl Harbor?

Glad I didn't attend a University like that! Someone should call this guy and explain to him the meaning of being a TRUE US citizen. We give these foreign students free educations, housing, money, and just about anything their little hearts desire. All we ask for in return is a US Flag to support America and we offend someone? Stuff like this really ticks me off.

HE is the non-american......does`nt he get it?.....there are a lot of "international students" (as they are normally called) in other schools.....they feel as bad as the rest of us.......this dude is just another educated idiot! (complete lack of common sense)............[whacko]

I agree with GW and SJ. If he is offended or feels that the flag is offensive, he should leave us and never look back.

You have to understand that our universities are no longer concerned with educating American citizens. They are now "the world's universities" and they will do nothing to offend those students paying non-resident tuition, which is significantly higher than what residents pay. Sure, your tax dollars may fund some of these schools, but they know who butters their bread.

No, we had a country then, now we have a sensitivity experiment. "Now class, let's see how many different racial groups we can cram into the smallest space before they start killing each other."

John Smeaton offends me. I will feel better if he sucks on the snottie end of a Lorcin...

If the American Flag makes you "uncomfortable" maybe you shouldn't be in America!

I just asked him to leave the contry as well as his other "non-Americans." People like this pi$$es me off to no end. I thought we were over this kind of crap. Guess not.
