I know what they meant to say. Either way the video is hard to watch. Not because of language but because of stupid obama voters.
Sorry, but the vet should encourage USA flag displayed upside-down. It is an international signal of distress; in this case a nation; a nation turned upside-down.
It had something to do with their certain cause and I could see this Vets point of view.
“Stupid Obama Voters”?Isn’t that REDUNDANT?I can understand why some voted for Obongo in 2008.They wanted to be”Part of History”!The first Black POTUS?Not only was this “Historic”,but they also voted for the first Presidential Cndidate who HATES The United States of America!!!We can only”HOPE” that that remains”Historic”?????????????
To be technical, flying the flag upside-down is a distress signal:
THE FLAG CODE
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
Approved July 7, 1976
§ 176. Respect for flag: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
He shouldn’t be pissed about them flying it upside down, but about them using a distress-signal when there is no distress.
I had to watch this video several times to catch what all was going on.....
Stop it at about 3 minutes and 20 seconds. You can clearly see the flag touching the ground!!! Yes this Vet has the right to be pissed. I would be too and I’m not a Vet!!! Who are these idiots????
I can understand why some voted for Obongo in 2008.
They wanted to bePart of History! NO!
The first Black POTUS? NO!
Not only was this Historic,but they also voted for the first Presidential Cndidate who HATES The United States of America!!!NO!
The USA is prosperous, I am not. Give me what you owe me...BITCH!
It’s refreshing to see that there is still passion in the country.
Too bad a real SEAL didnt come along to explain why fakes should not wear SEAL hats.
The issue should not be that it was upside down but that it was on the ground and although the old guy kept saying it was not a real flag, they would not have been using it unless they thought it represented America.
No. Some of them are willfully evil.
I had my flag upside down (army-66-68) draftee :( on a 30 foot pole. Two neighbors my age said it was disrectable . My reply was it was sign of distress, any military person would know that! Neither of the assholes served... My age.......
I took it down but have not spoken to either since then.
2) the guy in orange, who claimed to be a veteran, and was wearing a SeAL cap (Stolen Valor, anyone?) kept saying the flag wasn't a real symbol, or other such trash.
Therefore, the Obammunists had no respect for Old Glory..they were using it to incite outrage, and I don't blame the young veteran for fighting back. I admire him, in fact. Had I been there, my inclination would've been to join him in wrestling the flag away from the scumbags.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Hell, MINE (on a 20’ pole near my front door) has been inverted since 2008.
Anyone who DOESN’T GRASP THAT WE’RE IN SERIOUS DISTRESS just isn’t paying attention.
The protester felt the need to high his face. That shows real courage.
That was my first thought.
