Hampshire College student Daniel Vogel appeared on Fox News Channel's 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' to debate the school's decision to remove American flags from their campus. The anchor fiercely questioned his reasoning.
From now on, "no American flags will be flown on campus. Getting rid of the flag will allow us to focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors," Carlson reported about the school's decision.
"Think about the groups that use the flag, from police officers to the US Army, these are the forces on the ground that make oppression happen," the student, Vogel explained.
"If the police and the army would go away, sensitive college students like you would be eaten alive," Carlson noted.
"It's not really about me, its about black people, who, if they were tried for a felony, are much more likely to be put in prison than me for those felonies," Vogel responded, "US imperial forces are really the main force in the world right now using military force to oppress people."
Carlson responded: "You find America unfair, okay, what's a fairer country? Can you think of a country where you'd rather go on trial for a felony?"
Next, Carlson asked why "none of the workers you claim to be representing ever say that... You never see anybody at a trade school burning the American flag: You think at your average HVAC repair school they're burning the flag?"
