Facing national outrage after Todd Starnes wrote about it and spoke with Kris Kobach yesterday, the University of Kansas on Wednesday moved an American flag that had been desecrated to protest President Trump and his border security policies.
A university spokesperson said the flag was part of a display from the nationwide "Pledges of Allegiance" public arts project that went up July 5 and is at 13 locations around the country.
Starnes spoke with Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer about why the flag had to come down and what he did next.
"When I first heard about this I was appalled. It was disgraceful, it was insulting. I called the head of the Board of Regents and I called the Chancellor of the University, talked to them, and demanded that the flag come down that day, and they complied. I ordered us at the State to put flags up all the way around the State Capitol, four city blocks of state flags. They're flying proudly yesterday, today. and tomorrow to celebrate who we are," Gov. Colyer said.
