Berkeley students give middle finger salute to U.S. flag, praise ISIS flag

How confused are students at the University of California at Berkeley? Confused enough express hatred toward the U.S. in an especially ugly gesture, while simultaneously praising ISIS.

Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz, who captured this revolting behavior on video, writes:

I went back to UC Berkeley to conduct another little social experiment. The results were shocking. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Indeed.

In the video, which appears below, Horowitz proclaims, “I love America,” while waving the flag. “This country stands for freedom.”

Pointing to students, he asked, “Greatest country in the world, right?

Students, however, disagree.

“The opposite,” one student says. “The complete opposite.”

“The one imperial power in the world right now,” another student opines.

“It signifies military rule,” says an older man who was not identified but might be a teacher at the school.

“God is not proud of us,” says another student.

“F**k America,” one student declares.

“God f**k this country,” says one black student as he passes Horowitz.

Another student meanwhile engages in a bit of anti-Semitism, telling Horowitz, “I seen you walking around here with your little Star of David, you s*it head.”

One student flips the flag off as he rides by on a bicycle as a female student submits, “Your flag sucks, fool.”

“Because she said my flag sucks, I wanted to see what the reaction would be with, well, another flag that’s out there in the news,” Horowitz says.

He then shows up with a black ISIS flag, making anti-American declarations as students pass by.

“I stand against America,” he calls out.

“Good for you, man, good for you,” one student says in response to Horowitz’s demonstration.

“I love that you’re saying that,” another student says.

Horowitz reports that after spending “several hours” waving his ISIS banner while shouting pro-ISIS and anti-American slogans, only one person was upset.

Here’s the video:

It’s really no surprise to those of us who cover these topics that students at Berkeley hate America. It’s still quite disturbing to see this kind of anti-American hate being expressed so fervently on the campus.

It certainly makes one wonder just what kind of nonsense is being taught at the school.

Perhaps these students should be required to live a few years in the kind of dictatorship they seem to embrace. Perhaps then they’ll have a better appreciation of America.

But who am I kidding — these are Berkeley students, after all.

By the way, this is the modern left. And we should be afraid should these people ever gain power in the country.
