Eagle Crashes Amid Chants of "USA! USA!"

Foreshadowing? lol.

"Lewis was supposed to fly from the back of the chapel and land on the arm of his handler, Roger Wallace of the World Bird Sanctuary, who was standing on the front stage with ORU president Dr. William Wilson.

Instead, Lewis veered off track and swooped over the heads of the students, who were chanting “USA! USA!” Then this happened...
...Yes, Lewis, our nation’s symbol, inexplicably crashed into the window and fell to the ground in a heap amid gasps and shrieks from the audience."

Rich symbolism given the events unfolding in Syria.

USA, USA, chants the mob as cruise missiles fly toward Syria. Gasps and shrieks as Russia nukes the carrier group from which they were launched.

The Handler?

I am very surprised that the handler of this Eagle agreed to fly him in that closed in and windowed enviroment, let alone not telling the crowd prior to the release of the Eagle to be quiet during it's flight.

Very irresponsible of the handler. The Eagle could have easily broken it's neck or a wing when it hit the window.

This does NOT belong under "Politics, General + Law(s)"

This is just trash. The DP is overrun with kids these days.

When I read the title...

I was thinking F-15 Eagle!

USA!USA!USA! Does anyone else


Does anyone else see the parralel mindset of those who once chanted


Did not the germans also believe that their leaders were doing good.
Did german leaders use propaganda?
History tells us that ze germans wanted to expand their teritory, as it is looking the the western world is doing.
I have a nagging question, are the western countries using germany's playbook, or did germany use histories playbook

Sorry im just musing here

Is this legal?

Aren't eagles considered an endangered species? If they captured the eagle and released it, did they do it legally? Or did it just get trapped inside the building?

it was looking for freedom

it was looking for freedom

omg lol


Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

after reading the comments i

after reading the comments i realize i was not the only one with those thoughts

Lewis simply wanted to be

Lewis simply wanted to be fear. Him flying out was the most logical thing to happen when you release a Wild Animal.

I don't understand how everyone in the room doesn't already understand that. Those gasps should be sounds of realization.

Poor bird

No such thing as a truly tamed animal. All that noise and confined space probably freaked it out, making it panic to head for the window.

Idiots. The Romans worshiped the Eagle icon on their battle standards.
Look at what happen to them.

Thank goodness, Lewis was OK.

His handler rescued him and he is none the worse for wear.

It seemed to me that he saw the sky and headed for freedom.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Wow if that is not symbolic

Wow if that is not symbolic of our country I dont know what is. Hey look at all the blue sky, see we are free! Then when you actually try to seek freedom you hit an invisible glass shield among chants of countless Nationalistic idiots chanting USA USA!

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

You hit the eagle--I mean the NAIL--on the head!

100% Accurate.

What would the Founders do?


weaklings who have no inner strength need to belong to cults and worship idols. And we wonder why the GOP is a laughing stock? The real story here is the animal cruelty. If you respected the Eagle you would catch glimpses of it in nature.

I feel sorry for the eagle

Abused by hypocritical people who want to worship him as an idol.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Geez.... Now it makes sense...

These are Oral Roberts students... and Oral Roberts has to be one of the most popular FALSE TEACHERS ever.

Oral Roberts: A charismatic piece of crap. A man without a soul. A man who led so many astray because so many bought his stupid lies.

Oral Roberts.... a guy who has claimed to see a 900ft Jesus (no kidding, he really claimed this)

Oral Roberts... A complete financial failure

This guy preached more lies than there is truth in the Bible

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

Faith in God will prevail all things!

I have only fond

memories of Oral Roberts. Don't know if he was good or bad but I do know that when my grandma was staying with us while
dying of cancer we would watch him every Sunday. The song I remember was "Something good is going to happen, to you" I was very young, maybe five or six, and whenI think of her that is the memory that comes to mind.

He could teach

students to earn a degree in Lie Marketing.


This is utter insanity. How the masses chant "USA USA" while the "USA" is about to invade yet another country, Syria!!! WTF

All this emotional bull-s-h-i-t leads us NOWHERE FAST! And a crowd like this demonstrates just how F'ed up the general population is in this country....

God Help us....

Poor eagle... why they would let the bird go and fly in that crowded disaster is just a sad shame!!!

False worship in a "house of worship".... Go figure

once the cruise missiles

once the cruise missiles start falling and fox news is wrapping them selves in the flag, watch all the morons out driving with American flags on their trucks etc.
