After hero frat guys save American flag, America responds with big surprise

A GoFundMe campaign designed to celebrate a group of fraternity members from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has garnered over $230,000. These members of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity stood up against an anti-Israel group that attempted to take down the American flag. The funds are being raised to organize a party for the fraternity, one they’ve rightfully earned through their actions.

The fundraising page proudly describes the group as the “boat-shoed Broleteriat who did their country proud,” and aims to host a party “worthy” of their courage. The description on the page reads: “Help us raise funds to throw this frat the party they deserve, a party worth of the boat-shoed Broleteriat who did their country proud.”

This incident occurred at Polk Place in the University of North Carolina on May 1, 2024, where the American flag was temporarily surrounded by barriers. The fundraiser paints a vivid picture of the scene: “Amidst the chaos, the screaming, the anti-semitism, the hatred of faith and flag, stood a platoon of American heroes. Armored in Vineyard Vines and Patagonia, fueled by Zyn and White Claws, these triumphant Brohemians protected Old Glory from the unwashed Marxist horde.”

The situation escalated when anti-Israel protesters removed the American flag from its pole and replaced it with the Palestinian flag. UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor Lee H. Roberts intervened to rehoist the American flag. However, the protests continued, and attempts were made once more to take down the flag.

Guillermo Estrada, one of the fraternity brothers involved, recounted, “We ran over to hold it up, in order for it not to touch the ground.” As they held the flag, they faced hostility as protesters threw water bottles, rocks, and sticks at them.

The fraternity’s actions have not gone unnoticed, earning accolades from several lawmakers including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rep. Mike Collins (R-GA), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), and Rep. Lisa McClain (R-MI), all commending the students for their bravery in the face of opposition.
