Upside-Down Flag Irks Neighbors

PALM BAY, Fla., (UPI) — Residents of a Florida neighborhood are complaining about a U.S. flag being flown upside-down at a Palm Bay home.

Palm Bay residents Shirley and Thomas Moore said they were shocked to see the flag upside-down outside of a neighbor’s home during the Veteran’s Day weekend, Florida Today reported Wednesday.

“We served for the right of people to express themselves,” said Thomas Moore, 62, a Navy veteran.

Moore said he disagreed with the gesture.

“It is a disrespect to the flag,” he said.

Florida Today said the residents of the home did not respond to calls for comment, but a notice posted on the door explains the inverted flag is a sign of distress.

“As a result of the many traitors and enemies we as a free people have, both foreign and domestic, as a result of unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against the US citizens and their life, liberty and property, and as a result of policies that have allowed (and continues to allow) enemies of this nation to enter in large numbers through porous border policy, I believe the life, liberty and property of U.S. citizens are in dire danger and distress,” the sign read.

    The objection of these people only shows their ignorance. None even know the regulations on proper display of our flag. Why is this? Our educators in all their wisdom would rather teach everything that’s politically correct. Our flag when flown upside down signals a ship in distress. In this case it is the ship of state. Freedom of speech is only part of it. If he burned it it would it be OK? Where was the outrage when the demonstrators violated New York? They walked on, urinated and other disgusting things to our flag. Who spoke up? These are the people who will deserve everything their politically correct government gives them.
    God bless America. and God help all of our narrow minded ignorant people.
