Veteran Puts Sign Up In His Yard - Receives Major Backlash

Because the United States is allowing corporations to desecrate American land, a protestor decided he would desecrate the American flag. An Iowa man flies his flag upside down and under a Chinese flag to protest the construction of an oil pipeline near his home.

According to KCRG, Homer Martz says he wasn’t given notice or due process in regards to the pipeline’s construction. He joins thousands of protesters across the country who are protesting the construction of cross-country pipelines that carry oil or gas. This pipeline starts in North Dakota and runs through South Dakota and Iowa before it stops in Illinois.

"In China there is no freedom, no protesting, no due process. In Iowa? In America?" he wrote on his flagpole. Iowa’s flag desecration laws were ruled unconstitutional in 2014.

Martz, a U.S. Army veteran, says that he is in his legal right to desecrate or even burn the flag. The Supreme Court made these rulings in 1989 and 1990.
