Local Republican Party Head Hangs Upside Down American Flag In Protest Of Obama’s Inauguration

Upside-Down-American-Flag-Obama-Inauguration

In Pennsylvania, one local Republican Committee head has chosen to express his discontent with President Obama‘s reelection and second inauguration in a very public, and some would say controversial, way. Brent Kovac, leader of the local Republican Party chapter, hung an American flag upside down during the inauguration ceremony yesterday. The symbol usually indicates distress by soldiers in times of war. Now, Kovac is facing backlash from the community.

Kovac spoke to local station WPXI and said he does not “regret it at all” because “our nation is in a horrible place.” The flag was placed in a prominent location outside a local Republican meeting spot on the main road of McKeesport.
