“A trial date has been set for a Roselle Park homeowner who has been cited over profanity-laced anti-President Joe Biden flags outside her residence.
The Willow Avenue property owner was issued a summons earlier this month over three of six flags that her daughter, Andrea Dick, has on display outside the home, including one that says “Fuck Biden” and another that shows former President Donald Trump raising middle fingers.”
Donald Trump supporters tend to take on the demeanor and character of their orange messiah, consequently their arguments in support of him are generously sprinkled with obscenities. Their Trump merchandise and campaign posters often includes profanity, that’s just how they roll.
Trump followers, many of whom are evangelicals, have a tendency to be evangelical in the support of their Dear Leader. Eight months after the election many of these cult leaders still have Trump flags and signs on their front yards.
To put it mildly, Trump sycophants are annoying assholes, but the price of living in a democracy requires us to put up with them.
Joe Biden won. Trump lost. Trump cultists have a constitutional right to believe in conspiracy theories and to put up obscene signs on their property. Andrea Dick has a constitutional right to be a dick.
Dick’s signs are an affront to decency, common sense and civility, but they do serve a practical purpose: They demonstrate the stupidity, ignorance and fucked-up spirit of Trump devotees.
