What's up with this by the way? The same people who were crying about kneeling during the the national anthem are now flying their flags upside down, which is worse imo. Any who, the largest veteran association is now saying stop. Will the hypocritical red necks listen to the veterans they claimed they were fighting for during the kneeling situation?




WASHINGTON — The veteran organization the American Legion weighed in on the upside-down American flag controversy on Thursday, noting that flags should only be flown this way if there is "extreme danger to life or property."

 
Flying the flag upside down is a signal of distress. The ones doing so think the country is in distress because it's not going the way they want.

Everyone today has become a crybaby and needs something to complain about while pointing to the other guy saying it's their fault.

I realize I may stand alone in this controversial opinion, but... I fervidly believe in peaceful expression. Whether it's kneeling during the anthem or flying the flag upside down. While the reaction of others may not be peaceful, if the initial action expression is peaceful I support that. You can't say you fought to defend that freedom and then get mad at the way people use it. And I say that as a 20-year veteran in the military.

I agree that is tasteless and very crybaby of the folks doing it.

But it is their right, just like it's mine and the Legions to call them out on it.
 
I think people should just use the flag in it original form and presentation. Anytime this stuff happens, it feels like some petty underhanded way to separate someone’s patriotism from another person/ groups patriotism. It doesn’t keep me up at night but I do think it’s a symptom of polarization that we even find ways to argue about the flag.

Exactly.

I may not agree with what everyone does, but I support their right to do it. Just as I equally support those who call them out... so long as it's all peaceful. Because that's the heart of that freedom.
 
don't you dare skid a tire on a fucking pride flag, you will literally go to jail.
Now that is stupid when the Pride Flag isn't even real and who gave the Twinks the right to the rainbow....Leprechauns fought hard to claim that rainbow and protect their gold nuggets.

Very stupid way to protest - especially if you never served the flag.

It's legitimately the same thing as kneeling during the anthem, but people pretend that its different.

People have the right to do it though, of course.
 
it’s like they got so mad about getting their shit pushed in about still flying the confederate flag, that they said

“fine! We’ll fly your damn flag but we will fly it upside down”… Check!
