الخيارات الثنائية فرانكو التداول Those differences emerged early last week when students began calling the flags “dismembered” and “desecration.” Students on Twitter and a Facebook event created by NUCR President Eric Armbruster demanded the flags’ removal. The event culminated Thursday when the flags were stolen, but were returned to Northeastern authorities that afternoon.

هذا الارتباط التشعبي “I didn’t view it as desecration,” Berner said. “I understand the flags draw you in.”

[People] are forced to look at it.”

Starr said he wasn’t trying to make “Exploded View” a negative piece, but one that shows the deep divide between two major political parties in our country and reinforces how America needs to be a united front.

“I never intended to offend,” Starr said. “I did intend to get your attention.”
