Freepers promote and celebrate desecration of the flag

I swear, these folks aren't human.

The American flag at the Follansbee McDonald's is flying at half-staff and upside down today. Someone at the restaurant told one of our reporters this was "the owner's decision."
=============================================================

Just a thought, but don't you think the local police should be notified? Isn't flying the flag upside a sign of distress?

1. The flags at school were at half staff but

that was because of the Chicago firefighter who passed away.

2. It's a signal of distress, but not desecration

There were quite a few upside-down flags here on DU during the Bush years.

3. Yeah, but when we do it it's desecration...

...when they do it it's OK. Isn't that how it works?

4. I'm pretty sure McD's franchisees aren't permitted to make up

their own protocol for the US flag. Hmmm.

6. Guess who will lose their McDonald's franchise??

Regardless of the politics of Corporate McD's, they do NOT take to this shit kindly. They are run like a military, and the franchisees are very very controlled. I think I'll be popping over to their corporate site to complain.

8. Dig this. Called McD corporate. They're saying "oh, it wasn't intentional!!"

"a cable broke and the flag was hanging upside down and the owner didn't know it until a customer mentioned it. And they're trying to fix it."

I looked at the pic. No way that is what happened. The flag is not flapping in the breeze on a broken cable... and it broke exactly half-way up?? I told her that I'm sure that is what they're saying now, but no one believes them. Glad that other people are calling!!!

But the FR post refers to a tv station there, whose reporter was told it was intentional.

10. If they're in distress, perhaps someone should call 911

They obviously need emergency services
