A female Air Force veteran who is also a hot model is not a person you come across every day. She may have the looks to model, but she isn’t scared of kicking your ass if need be. Michelle Manhart got into a bit of a scuffle with protesters and police on the campus of Valdosta State University this past Friday. By the end of it all, she found herself cuffed in the back of a Valdosta State University police Charger.
The incident was caught on video — in very shitty quality — and posted online yesterday.
According to Michelle, she was was aware of the group’s recent protests and made her way to campus after a student informed her that they were desecrating the flag. When the police attempted to return the flag to the protestors, all hell broke loose.
From Valdosta Daily Times:
“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”
As seen in the video, Michelle put up a helluva fight to keep the flag from ending up back in the hands of the scum who chose to walk across it. While no video exists of the actual protestors walking on the flag, a photo was posted online that appears to show one of the men in the video walking across a flag.

What an asshat. The group chose not to be identified or to state their cause — it is believed to be something related to racial issues. The only clue they gave was a statement overheard by a reporter.
One member of the group who declined to speak with The Valdosta Daily Times or identify himself told a VSU student that putting the American flag on the ground and walking on it was “a symbol of our protest. When a slave understands his situation and understands he doesn’t want to be in slavery, he does not respect or revere anything his slavemaster has put in front of him.”
The protestors and police elected not to press charges against Michelle, and she was free to leave after receiving a ban from the VSU campus.
While this story seems great at first, a photo has been appearing on social media that seems to show Michelle may be a hypocrite. The photo is allegedly from one of Michelle’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” nude photo shoots for an old PETA ad campaign.

I have been unable to 100 percent confirm the photo is of Manhart, yet the tattoos match those seen in a video she filmed for PETA in conjunction with the photo campaign. Either way, it adds yet another interesting dynamic to the story.
Patriotism, boobs, and hypocrisy. Damn, I’m torn..
