This is going to be one hell of a party.

A fundraiser for a group of fraternity brothers who were caught on camera guarding the American flag from protestors has quickly taken off, and it looks like these guys are going to have what may turn out to be the world’s biggest frat party.

As I’m sure you’re aware by now, protests have been popping up on college campuses all over the country calling for universities to divest from Israel and support Palestine amid the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

Protestors at Columbia University and many others across the country have set up encampments and occupied buildings, leading to tense standoffs with university officials and law enforcement who are trying to maintain order on campus.

At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill earlier this week, protestors took down the American flag on the campus quad and replaced it with a Palestinian flag, a move that (understandably) upset quite a few people.

Police eventually escorted UNC chancellor Lee Roberts out to personally replace the stars and stripes, leading to a heated confrontation with the pro-Palestinian protestors. But after the flag was replaced, an unlikely group of heroes emerged to protect it from the angry mob: Frat bros.

A photo quickly went viral of the group of fraternity brothers protecting the American flag, singing the national anthem as it was being hoisted back above campus and smiling at protestors who were hurling things at them as they surrounded the flagpole.

Well social media loved them so much that somebody has even established a GoFundMe to support these guys in pretty much the best way possible to support a group of frat guys: Throwing them a rager.

According to the description of the GoFundMe:

“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.

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.”

Well, they’re getting their party…and I’m not sure “rager” is a strong enough word to describe this one.

So far, in around 24 hours, the internet has already donated over $400,000 to this worthy cause, including several $10,000 donations and a few for $1,776.

Even Ultra Right Beer, the conservative beer company that was started in the wake of the Bud Light controversy last summer, has stepped up to promise unlimited beer to these patriots.

And John Rich offered to serve as the entertainment for the event with a free concert:

He’s even come up with a name for the event, dubbing it Flagstock 2024.

An update on the fundraiser’s page also says that they’re working with an event planner and GoFundMe to ensure that the event goes smoothly:

“We have identified a world class event planner named Susan and she is already hard at work. She worked in the White House and knows what she’s about.

Another fine American is wheels down in North Carolina tonight and working to identify all of our Noble Born brochachos, who stood down the frumpy hordes with nothing more than a pastel shirt and a smile.

Go Fund has dispatched a member of their team to work closely with us and ensure your donations do as God intended — to show these guys enough fireworks to blow their Oakley aviators straight off their faces.”

This may just end up being the biggest party since all that tea ended up in the Boston harbor.
