But by Sunday morning, the club reported that the memorial had been trashed. On their Facebook page, the Occidental College Republican Club said that vandals had “crushed, snapped, and threw in the garbage every single flag. Not one was left on the ground.”

The group also claimed that posters and flyers had been posted on campus that “shamed the victims of 9/11.”
