I don't think there ARE hippies anymore. But I do like the young men in the vid.

I guess there are different ways of displaying the “distressed” US flag....

There are conservatives doing so today, because of the current ‘Rat regime’s destruction.

Upside down is NOT disrespectful. Learn the rules.

Good evening.

Upside down is NOT disrespectful. Learn the rules.

Of course you are correct. International sign of distress. Was your post specifically to Nachum, or the thread in general?

Thanks.

I agree ... this is misplaced patriotism.

after watching it a couple of times ... it almost appears staged.

The rider with the flag has a covered face ala muzzie terrorist and he drops the flag when the guys approach, but does not speed off

The guys recover the flag but don't attempt to catch the rider(s) nor is the flag carried off in an upright position .... the pole is not THAT long/out of place,

My young daughter calls them ‘hipsters’.
All I can say about them is—if I catch one spray-painting ‘NWO’ on my building, he’s going to sleepyland.

Besides displaying the flag upside down the hippie let the flag fall to the ground.

Wow...No wonder they’re protesting...I saw the video of that...

That is what you’d expect to happen in the middle of a brutal violent war...Not by police in the USA.

“Distress signal” at a protest concerning the twentieth-something homicide by militarized cops in ABQ in the last few years.

Mentally ill man camping in the hills was unnecessarily and illegally gunned down.

No respect for the “patriotically” brain-dead “marine and soldier” or whatever who can’t read the battlefield and tell who is friend and foe. They’ll probably get jobs killing innocent citizens for the DHS or local SWAT teams or some such after they get out. Morons.

“Upside down is NOT disrespectful. Learn the rules.”

It is disrespectful when disrespect is intended.

Unfortunately they still exist... they morph into one of two things, aging liberals with dementia i.e. Reid, Pelosi etc or they become college professors.

“patriotically” brain-dead “marine and soldier”.....

easy to say hiding behind that computer screen.

Perhaps the marine and soldier were not totally aware of what the so-called hippy protestors were about but had only seen the flag being displayed upside down and then thrown on the ground. Throwing the flag to the ground is good enough for me to go after them.

Perhaps there is more to the story than what shows in the brief video.

Right on Dragnet. I wish more people would look at the reason. Cause and Effect.
