All politics are local. That’s why I am on my HOA board. One of the residents of my neighborhood lives right at the entrance. His house is the first one you see. Attached to his fence facing the street is a flag with a caricature of the President and “let’s go Brandon” on it.
Here is a complaint the HOA got from another resident:
Are we allowed to have offensive flags hung on our fences? The first home on the right has had his Let’s go Brandon flag up off and on as he feels like it. I do not care about which political side. I care it implies a curse word and it’s the first thing people see entering into our neighborhood.
“Let’s Go Brandon” is a political slogan which has been widely used as a minced oath for “Fuck Joe Biden” in reference to Joe Biden, the 46th president of the United States. Chants of “Fuck Joe Biden” were first heard at sporting events in early September 2021. Wikipedia
That flag is offensive, not Freedom of Speech.LOL. That is why the HOA asked for someone to take down their Trump 2024 sign.
Great so I am allowed to fly a flag that has a curse word on it? I had to explain to my child with Autism on it what it means. He knows the President’s face and name and was confused by the flag. I was forced to explain it. FUCK JOE BIDEN. Classy for our neighborhood welcome flag. I don’t care which Political party it is for or against. I care it implies an offensive word.
At least everyone would not have to see it if it was moved to his garage or front.
The first sign he had up said, “Fuck Joe Biden”. He replaced that with the flag. Since no sign rule.Either way my son got educated on both. He faces them towards the entrance.
Profane rants that cross the line into direct face-to-face personal insults or fighting words are not protected by the First Amendment. … United States (1969) established that profanity spoken as part of a true threat does not receive constitutional protection.
We told her that there is no HOA rule covering flags, and was thus not an HOA issue. I also explained to her that this is not a “face to face insult” or “fighting words” to anyone except Joe Biden himself.
We then forwarded the complaint to the homeowner in question, who told her to come on over so he could explain it to her.

Mama always said “Karen is as Karen does.”

What Anon at almost midnight said. No, the mother didn’t have to go into the full explanation of the statement, and the politics behind it.
But, no, that’s the way the wonderful leftist douchenozzles work.
Which is why double-entendres in cartoons isn’t allowed anymore. Dammit.

I wonder what all these people with no lives, who run around looking for ways to be offended, are going to do when they have real problems like the food runs out or they get shot at a gas station like back in the jimmy carter days of gas shortages….

As an HOA manager myself, I have this to add: we stay the Hell away from political signs, unless the HOA has a policy on file stating that signs and decor (including political signs) must only be displayed during certain times (such as appropriate holidays and election seasons), with a time limit before and after.
My last HOA I managed had such a rule. This one doesn’t. We have American flags everywhere. The HOA I bought into recently is a “road HOA” and doesn’t engage in such frivolous nonsense, thank God. That neighborhood is also well bedecked with Old Glory, and I fly my flag proudly as well. “Offense can never be given, only taken”… and may these Karens learn to suck it up and re-grow a sense of humor… if they ever had one.
And might I add… LET’S GO BRANDON!
PS: Libertyblessedus will be rolling in a bit – I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed with other concerns, time is of the essence, and there are only 24 hours in a day, and only one of me… Thanks for everything, DM!

Not really an option in Florida. More than 90 percent of homes built in the last 40 years are in deed restricted communities

in some states they have way too much power…still wouldn’t live in one…and if i had no choice, i would be their worst nightmare…

A local has a monster 4×4 with a F’ Joe Biden flag flying from the truck bed.
The 1A is to protect speech that is offensive because once they remove the offensive stuff, they move on to mundane items and thoughtcrime or thinking for yourself.
How about Let’s Go Heather for the Cackler or Kamal after she was introduced Monday as Heather Lutenbach.
