OK. Let's try to use common sense.
The simple jump-the-gun explanation is that it's satanic. I highly doubt that the creators, with the Civil War ripping up the country, wanted to
giggle at squeezing in a satanic symbol onto a medal. We only equate upside down stars with satanic beliefs because we have been trained in a way to
do so. We see them in horror flicks, painted on empty buildings by idiots, the Church of Satan hangs it up, witchcraft books use it, etc. Like the
swastika it doesn't always mean what we first think of when we see it. If I draw a pentagram on my head does it make me satanic? No. If people see me
like that and don't know me will they think I'm satanic? Probably, it's the easiest answer.
The actual reason for an upside down star on this prestigious medal is because it IS prestigious. They wanted a star, among other things it
represented the states, but try hanging a "right way up" star on a ribbon or neckpiece. Especially a ribbon, as you would only be able to use one
small chain/link to hang it. Many early medals, even unofficial ones, had two links, one on each end of the ribbon. Two links means less chance of
losing the medal itself, no one of course wanted to lose their MOH. Also, movement like simply bending over a table could flip the medal to its
reverse side if dangling from one link in the middle. The only way to hang a star from two seperate links/rings is to turn it and have two arms of the
star up. Plus the MOHs had/have a bar over the top reading "VALOR." Easier to hang that from two than one link. That is why other old medals were
made with two links or chains to fasten them. To keep from losing them or if they were caught on anything it reduces the risk of breaking both. That
The Pentagon Channel displays a pentagram. I'm shocked. It's actually a kind of psychological optical illusion. And marketing. They wanted a
pentagram because that's the NAME. Point it down and the eye is drawn more to the scroller which is on most feeds. They assume you'll watch/listen
to the reader.
As a conservative, I'm glad the most insane posts here are obviously leftists. The home page here currently has a headline with quote stating:
People who don't want to have to think for themselves adopt conservative positions, because they are quick and simple, and don't require much
So...it must be conservative thinking to scream SATAN!! AAUUGGH!! when a design uses a star that's upside down? Hey, that's not me doing it. But
that's the most simple analysis. So there are a lot of closet conservatives here.
The truth is too boring. One must be "in on" conspiracy theories to feel important and smarter than the average joe. Insulting people is easier
than admitting you just may be wrong about something. Some people must reinforce their imagined overimportance by way of black helicopters and such.
