On the sixteenth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, students at Amherst College in Massachusetts hung a banner (above) condemning America’s “war on terror.”

It begins with a quote by radical historian Howard Zinn: “There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”

Below this, the sign reads “In honor of those killed and displaced by America’s so-called ‘war on terror.'”

The Amherst College Republicans would not stand for this display of anti-patriotism on the anniversary of 9/11. In response, the group hung a large American flag in the same hall next to a sign that said “Never Forget,” according to “The Daily Wire.”

While the identities of those who posted the original un-American sign are unknown, it has now been removed.
