University of Kansas Flies Defaced American Flag as “Art”
Patriotic Americans found out that the University of Kansas intentionally flew a defaced American flag that they referred to as “art.” The “artist” hates President Trump and wanted to convey her displeasure at the United States. Everyone from the Kansas Governor to veterans are outraged.
Update: the offending flag has been removed according to the Military Times.
“The disrespectful display of a desecrated American flag on the KU campus is absolutely unacceptable. Men and women have fought and bled for that flag and to use it in this manner is beyond disrespectful. I have communicated with KU Chancellor Doug Girod and Board of Regents President Blake Flanders to express my disappointment that a taxpayer funded institution would allow such a display of our sacred flag, and I demand that it be taken down immediately.” Governor Colyer
So there are a couple of issues here: one, that the flag has been desecrated by a liberal moron who has no respect for anyone. Two, the University of Kansas is a taxpayer funded school.
“The piece, called Untitled (Flag 2), is the last of a series of flag pieces that have flown on the Lawrence campus in the last several months as part of a national art project. Kansas is one of 11 institutions at 14 locations participating in “Pledges of Allegiance” project, which organizers say is designed to address social issues and inspire community among cultural institutions.”
The so-called “artist” who did this is Josephine Meckseper, a liberal fool who has no respect whatsoever for the flag or the men and women hwho have given their lives for it. She did it to take aim at Trump. Cute.
“The flag is a collage of an American flag and one of my dripped paintings which resembles the contours of the United States. I divided the shape of the country in two for the flag design to reflect a deeply polarized country in which a president has openly bragged about harassing women and is withdrawing from the Kyoto protocol and UN Human Rights Council.” Meckseper
I find a different “drip” here, and that’s the moron who created this trash. See what liberal indoctrination has wrought? Thanks to a liberal Supreme Court, she can’t even be charged for her crime under 18 U.S. Code § 700 – Desecration of the flag of the United States. But she should be. It’s unconscionable.
The University of Kansas (@KUnews) flew a defaced American flag in the name of art, according to students yesterday.

An American flag smeared with black paint is currently flying over campus at the University of Kansas as part of a nationwide art project intended as commentary on “the current political climate.” https://t.co/n8PY8EVnL3

No, this isn’t “art”, this is an embarrassment. Shame on KU, a public university, for flying this desecrated American flag over their campus. https://t.co/qvwhEiATR0

“It is unfortunate the University of Kansas has chosen to associate itself with an artist who despises the very nature of what it means to be an American.” – @toddstarnes #ksleg #NotMyKU #MAGA https://t.co/4qy9emAKRU

“As a U.S. Navy veteran and student at the University of Kansas currently seeking my Master’s degree, I find the ‘artwork’ that currently flies at Spooner Hall heinous and abhorrent.” https://t.co/2qc2uOSbDQ

The defaced flag raised on July 4th at @KUnews is an absolute disgrace. This is not art, this is a complete disrespect of the brave men and women who lost their lives defending that flag and all it stands for.#ksleg https://t.co/G3rvapLvUs
