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.
