Could there be anything more offensive than hanging the ISIS flag or a Nazi swastika at a major American university campus?
The answer, according to one student leader at the University of California, is yes: the flag of the United States of America.
In an interview with American documentary-maker and activist Ami Horowitz, UC Irvine student Matthew Guevara claimed he had submitted a motion to have the flag removed because it "represents hate-speech." More incredibly still, his motion was passed by the student government with a 60% majority.
Apparently unaware of the tongue-in-cheek nature of the interview, Guevara's answers to Horowitz's questions were at times simultaneously cringeworthy and hilarious.
In one particularly dizzying piece of intellectual gymnastics, after branding the US as the most evil entity on the planet Guevara went on to detail how his mother immigrated from Mexico in search of a better life, and detailed the numerous benefits and opportunities he and his family have enjoyed since then – benefits he said he was using to "take down the system".
Horowitz has become something of a viral sensation with his videos exposing the hypocrisy of the far-left in particular.
Recently he revealed how Irish businesses who supported the anti-Israel BDS boycott movement, ostensibly motivated by a concern for "human rights," were more than happy to stock produce from such bastions of human rights as Iran, North Korea and Sudan.
Last year, Horowitz visited the University of California at Berkeley to find out whether students found an ISIS flag more or less "offensive" than an Israeli one. Based on this most recent video, you can probably guess the answer.
