PacSun Sells Upside Down American Flag Shirts on Memorial Day

Trends… Trends are overwhelmingly the best indicator as to the state of our nation rather than any particular incident.  This trend is just another mainstream indication that our nation is in distress!

This photograph was taken in Foley, Alabama at a PacSun outlet store.  As shown, the upside down American Flag T-shirt is prominently displayed in the front of the store on Memorial Day Weekend.  People took to social media in outrage, not only at the popularized dismay of the flag, but the fact that it was displayed on memorial day.  For those that are not aware, an upside down American flag is meant to communicate a signal of distress in instances of extreme danger.

This is not the only PacSun T-shirt

Here’s other photos from their online shop:

This is not the only instance of American flags being displayed upside down…

Back in March, a retired Marine and local owner of a McDonalds had the American Flag flying upside down.  He claims it was a simply mistake by one of his employees, but I find that hard to believe.  It’s just another symbol of our nation in distress.

Back in 2012, another McDonalds also had the American flag flying upside down in West Virginia…

Or how about this Mall in California that had the American flag flown upside down, yet had the Mexican flag flying proud and upright?

The Trend is Clear

What was once conspiracy is now mainstream.  Jade helm is main stream, the corruption of the banks is mainstream, the possibility of war with Russia or global war is mainstream, a new race war is mainstream and more!  Preppers knew this was coming for a very long time, and mainstream has now started to validate everything we’ve been called crazy for!

Is it a bad thing?

On one side of the argument, I think flying the flag upside down is a perfectly appropriate symbol when used properly.  It’s a very powerful signal that something is wrong with this country…definitely more appropriate than the a-holes who are stomping on an American flag.  Where I find a problem with this is when a large commercial company is marketing this symbol for money.

What are your thoughts?  I’m sure people have all sorts of opinions on this one, so leave yours below!

    This website is satire, right? Otherwise, the author is far enough out of touch to think that PacSun is an “mainstream” indicator of anything other than tacky taste in clothes.

      Jeez, Louise. Okay, so an upside down flag on a T-shirt is B.S.
      But a McDonald’s Restaurant flying a flag upside down or a mall with a flag upside down is part of a “trend?” Give me a break.
      For Chrissakes, never attribute to conspiracy what simple incompetence can explain. Have you ever taken a look at who raises flags at places like these? Half-blind security guards who are supplementing their Social Security checks and pimple-faced teenagers who are clueless and rushed.
      Marine color detachments are scarce in settings such as these, but if anyone seriously thinks that all of this is part of a “trend,” well, the crazy train has just left the station.
      Toot-toot!

    I am a disabled veteran and extremely grateful for my God-given freedoms! They came to me because of an un-imaginable price that has been paid! I love my God, my family and my Country – the USA (the greatest in all the world) and most certainly, in that order!
    I grow very tired with some self-centered, people who – out of their own ignorance and even strong refusal to listen to truth – want to judge others by their most meaningless and
    ridiculous thinking and the anti-American lies upon which they feed! Whether you agree or not, OUR COUNTRY IS IN EXTREME TROUBLE and throughout many different
    avenues! Unless American citizens wake up very soon… IT WILL BE TOO LATE!
    I ask you, friend, is that what you want? Can you take the time to look beyond your
    own nose and take a serious look at where we are today??? BTW… that inverted
    flag (whether on a tee shirt or elsewhere) is just a clear reminder of the dire situation
    we’re in – but only for those who are willing to LISTEN!!!

    THE UPSIDE DOWN FLAG MEANS OUR COUNTRY IS IN EXTREME TROUBLE! WHICH IT IS!! An upside down flag is a cry for HELP!!

  • Jim Berry

    This is total BS. The upside down flag was a way for troops to communicate that their position was compromised. If your unhappy with the shape your country is in, it’s because of you. I’m tired of complainers that don’t vote or get involved. You have the power to change it. Not by crying about it but get off your lazy asses and do something. No matter how bad you think you have it you still live in the greatest place on this planet. Go live somewhere they are really bad off and complain.

      Rofl vote? What joke, only a person who has no idea of how our election process really works would post such nonsense.

      • Jim Berry

        I know exactly how it works. How about being part of the solution instead of showing your ignorance. Got a better idea? Do it! Make a difference. You are the only one that can make your situation better.
