Manhart's own treatment of the flag in a Playboy pictorial is just a little suspect. She probably did not intend to cast disrespect for the flag or the republic it symbolizes. Is she suggesting that this (i.e., American womanhood) is what our forces overseas are defending? Who knows. She does violate flag etiquette. She apparently received a reprimand and a demotion from the air force for the stunt.
Meanwhile, the group protesting the flag refused to press charges. Neither did it even identify itself. Now we know why. The group is a black supremacist organization touting the falsehoods of African origins of civilization, black Jesus, and collective white guilt. A social media upload:
And you can find the group's leader, Eric Sheppard demonstrating how much he hasn't learned in college here.
And now, after complaints from students that someone (Sheppard?) had been threatening to shoot people, campus police found a book bag containing a firearm. They claim to have indisputable evidence that links the handgun to Sheppard. A judge issued a warrant for Sheppard's arrest.
VSU issued a campus alert, implicitly admitting that Sheppard is the problem--not Manhart.
