What does it say about the state of America, traditional American values, and the American education system when a professor at one of the most respected American universities says the American flag is a “symbol of genocide”?
Yet, that’s exactly what happened when a Columbia University School of Social Work adjunct lecturer responded on Twitter to a tweet stating that “the hammer and sickle is a symbol of genocide” and comparing the communist flag to the swastika.
Not content to let that tweet stand, Anthony Zenkus, who teaches at Columbia, tweeted the following, “The American Flag is a symbol of genocide. Unless centuries of slavery and the vanquishing of Native American nations doesn’t figure into your equation.”
Here’s the tweet.
