A GoFundMe has been set up to fund a “rager” for a group of fraternity brothers who helped defend the American flag on the University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus, refusing to back down even as pro-Palestinian protesters surrounded them and shouted profanities and threw water on them.

The incident was documented by UNC student Guillermo Estrada (with the help of some photos from Parker Ali), who said that he had jumped into the fray not for political reasons but simply because he did not want to see the American flag disrespected by his fellow students.

“Today was a sad yet empowering day at Chapel Hill. When I walked to class, I saw the Palestinian flag raised on our quad flag pole, and was immediately upset at the act that these ‘protestors’ had made. I cannot say I am fully educated on the Israel/Palestine conflict, but it upset me that my country’s flag was disrespected in order to advocate for another. Shortly after, Chancellor Roberts came with police officers to hang the flag once again. They were met with profanity, middle fingers, thrown bottles, rocks, and water,” Estrada said.

“When the flag was raised once again, the greek (sic) community began singing the National anthem. As the Chancellor left, the quad erupted into chaos as protestors began removing the flag once again, preparing to destroy it,” Estrada continued.

“My fraternity brother and others ran over to hold it up, in order for it not to touch the ground. People began throwing water bottles at us, rocks, sticks, calling us profane names. We stood for an hour defending the flag so many fight to protect.”


Estrada went on to explain that he had grown up around military service members — and was the son of parents who had come to the United States for the opportunities available to those willing to work for them.

“I grew up in a Military community and saw first hand the sacrifices they make. I will not stand for the disrespect these protestors’ cause for the sake of another country. My LDOC [last day of classes] will be memorable in knowing that my fraternity brothers and others fought to keep the flag up. But it was also be memorable in knowing that so many yearn to disrespect it,” he concluded.

X user John Noonan responded to news of the fraternity’s actions by wondering how to reward them with a keg: “Love to know which frat so I can send them a lovely keg of Natty Ice.”

And a short time later, upon learning that the gentlemen were a part of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, Noonan shared a link to a GoFundMe page titled: “Pi Kappa Phi Men Defended their Flag. Throw ’em a Rager.”

A brief description followed:

Commie losers across the country have invaded college campuses to make dumb demands of weak University Administrators.
But 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 — laughing at their shrieks and wails and shielding the Stars & Stripes from Soviet missiles.
These boys… no, men, of the UNC Chapel Hill Pi Kappa Phi, gave the best to America and now they deserve the best.

Just one hour after the page was created, more than $3000 had already been raised.
