RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man says he is a libertarian who is upset with politicians in both parties, broken promises and rising taxes.

Many neighbors are calling the silent protest of Dennis Montey un-patriotic or un-American. He is flying the American flag upside down in front of his house.

Montey says this is a case of freedom of speech, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

Flying the flag upside is a universal signal of distress.

Montey says he has always flown a flag in front of his house in Racine, but this is the first time he has flown it upside down.
