Rep. Thorpe chimes in on Vice Mayor of Flagstaff flying U.S. Flag upside down
(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.
AZ Rep. Bob Thorpe also chimed in on this issue. Listen to the entire segment here…
Jeff wrote to the Vice Mayor and asked the following:
Vice Mayor Whelan,
It has come to my attention that your profile picture on Facebook displays an upside down Flag with the words “in dire distress” beneath.
Would you please share with the listeners of my show how you are “in dire distress”?
Also, are you aware of the U.S. Flag code which states “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.”
Would appreciate a response ASAP.
The Vice Mayor did respond:
Thank you for your feedback Jeff.
I am not interesting in being on your show.
I hope you are well.
