Michigan Doctor Hangs American Flag Upside Down

Published July 10, 2010

Dr. Thomas Byrd recently flew the American flag upside down outside his Michigan office.

It’s a sign of disrespect to veterans, service members and anyone who’s patriotic — an American flag flown upside-down. Why would someone fly Old Glory upside down, especially during the Fourth of July holiday? It’s the work of a Downriver, Mich., eye doctor, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.

It certainly caught people’s eyes. An American flag flying upside down in front of Dr. Thomas Byrd’s  office over the Fourth of July weekend. The eye doctor says he did it when he asked himself some questions.

“What’s the state of our nation at this time? And I thought that she’s in distress. So, I thought I would flip the flag in the long-standing sign of distress,” said Byrd. “And by inverting the flag I would perhaps get a few people to ask themselves maybe the same question. How is the Constitution doing? How is my liberty? How is my freedom compared to a few years ago?”

Dr. Byrd says flying the flag upside down was never intended to be disrespectful. He simply wanted to get people’s attention, MyFoxDetroit reported.

“A lot of people misunderstood and somehow thought I had some beef with the United States or that I… disrespected the flag or the country, and that couldn’t be further from the truth,” Byrd said.

The U.S. Flag code says the flag should only be flown upside down as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life and property.

“We are certainly in dire danger of property. There’s a great deal of property being taken from people right now, but it’s not the intent that we are in dire and immediate need that we’re being overrun,” said Byrd.

Dr. Bryd says he’s a Conservative who respects the Constitution and he did find some of former President George W. Bush’s approaches to Constitutional issues troubling. Some Conservative and Libertarian groups, such as the Cato Institute, found Bush’s record sharply at odds with the text, history and structure of the Constitution. But those days did not inspire Dr. Byrd to flip the flag.

We asked Byrd who is a greater threat to the Constitution, George W. Bush or Barack Obama? He answered, “I think the Obama administration

, by far.”

I for one am impressed that Dr Byrd knew the code in the 1st place.  He wanted to get the attention of the American people and let them know that he thinks his country is in DEEP shit.  I for one agree with him.  If you have the guts to stand up for what you believe in… show it.  I’m not saying to run right out and invert Old Glory, but there are other things you can do…. one of the biggest things you can do…. VOTE  Vote the cockbags out of office that allowed our country to get into the sorry state it’s become.  Vote for the most qualified person to do the job.  1st and foremost.. Vote for the person who will put the well-being of this country and it’s citizens above all else.

  1. Dr Byrd is perfectly correct. Flying the flag upside down is not disrespectful or anti-American in any way. It is as he says a call for help, a distress signal and was originated as a Save Our Ship plea………….Not that it will help in anyway with the administration we are under but at least he is speaking up. Its more than a lot of us are doing.
