Protests, Pride Fest, The Avs Win the Stanley Cup
Whilst American Flags are Flown Upside down
Cristal M Clark
What a weekend, Pride was celebrated nationwide, the Avs are bringing the cup home, and our nation saw protests with regard to Gun Control and Roe vs Wade.
Out in force were men and women standing in solidarity to protest the Supreme Court Jesters decision to overturn Roe vs Wade, likewise many are protesting a decision the court made on Thursday with regard to state and local governments restricting guns outside the home.
Quite a lot of activity.
What I noticed as I was out and about were that several individuals were running around with the American flag, upside-down.
According to the US Flag Code, flying the American flag shouldn’t be flown upside down — with the stars at the bottom — “except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.”
So to a watching world we are putting out a distress signal indicating that our country is pretty much a dumpster fire and that we are in dire need of assistance.
That call is not likely to be ignored.
Some call this move disrespectful while others see it as a call for help. Our entire system is a runaway train, on fire and creating chaos, hatred, discord and unnecessary suffering.
To be rather honest, the overall consensus of society here is that the Church should not influence our laws, constitution, courts or judges, and that church should very much be separate from state.
Our entire White House, Congress, the US Senate, courts, legal/judicial system are in complete shambles and tend to make less and less sense every day. The sheer number of homeless individuals and those that are being forced into roommate situations just to survive in this country can alone tell you that our economy is an absolute wreck. Social Security is going to run out long before many of us are even close to retirement age, and we are doing very little in an effort to stave off a climate crisis and on top of all of that we are seeing a record number of hate filled mass shootings and violence across every major city in this nation.
So yes, people are flying the American Flag upside-down begging for help, help that our leaders cannot seem to be able to provide.
America is no longer the land of the free, unless you are an old white man.
With this much angst in today’s society it does very much leave the door wide open for bad actors to come along and begin to influence, for the sole purpose of creating animosity, hate, separation, violence and war.
