Profane anti-Biden flag causing controversy in Connecticut, around the nation
www.courant.com

...Flags flying outside two homes in Plymouth proclaim in stark " and some have complained, vulgar and inappropriate language " the residents' rejection of the November election results and President Joe Biden.

About a half mile apart in the town's Terryville section, both banners hang below American flags and state in bold, white letters on blue background, "F---- BIDEN," and below that, in smaller type, "And ... you for voting for him!"

Plymouth police Capt. Edward Benecchi said residents have complained, saying neighborhood kids and students passing on school buses should not have to see such profanity.

But Benecchi said police consulted with the state's attorney's office in New Britain and found "we are unable to intercede as it would violate (the residents') First Amendment right to free speech."...

Why would anyone read anything on DR that has a headline like that? DR Libs have already made it very clear beyond any doubt that ANYTHING someone thinks, says, or does that is not in full agreement with Liberal ideology is a hate crime. Additionally, anything done by 1 person will then be used as ammunition to generalize the entire party, as well.

Oh, let's not forget the most important part, that when the same thing is done by DR Libs, which is every day, it's considered OK and should be ignored completely because objectivity left the Liberal party years ago. In fact, it is almost a standard these days that Liberals are actively fighting AGAINST objectivity. Everyone with objectivity knows that as bad as the Reps are, Dems are trying as hard as they can to be just as bad.

"Why would anyone read anything on DR that has a headline like that? "

Excellent question q-tard.

Why DID you read that headline!?

And what is this "Liberal Ideology" you are obsessed with?

Sounds like you are fighting with demons in your head.

You should probably get that checked out.

Meanwhile I leave you and your personal demons with this little reminder of what being "liberal" actually means;

If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.

#9 | Posted by Nixon at 2021-02-22 12:23 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 2

Trump is a symptom,the disease is stupidity and vainglory about nonsense. A babbling conman convinced 74 million people that he's the best this country can produce. That alone makes me wonder how we got so far as a nation.

America is in full decline. Our best years are long behind us.

Liberals - "You mean there's no way we can shut up these Americans?"

1st Amendment - "No, it's their right to speak"

Liberals - "Well, there's got to be consequences for them speaking like this so they will know to shut up" Liberals now feverishly looking up the people's names and private information to think up some type of social shaming to include loss of jobs and livelyhood.

In some ways, given the violence espoused and encouraged by Donald Trump, simply being a Trumper is a hate crime.

#14 | Posted by moder8 at 2021-02-22 01:53 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 1

You need to understand the difference between "society" and "the government". It is society (whomever that may consist of at a given time and place) that determines who is to be "shamed". The 1st Amendment does not defend you from the societal consequences (i.e., what other people think about it) of your speech.

If people don't like what you say, they have every right to react to it in any legal way they choose (which is usually also speech).

That is called freedom of speech.

But Snoofy,

I'm talking on an individual level. I'm talking about someone hearing a particular point of view at the store, then going all out to report what they heard a stranger say, then finding out who the stranger is, then trying to ruin them just because of what they said.

Oh wait.

Do you think employers should be able to fire employees based on their politics? Support of unions? Religious affiliation? Support for equal rights?

How could someone be ruined over what they say in a store? What have you been saying that causes you to fear ruin?

Depends. If someone is writing something in a debate with someone else, no.

All the 1st Amendment says about speech is that the government can "make no law" restricting the freedom of speech. It doesn't say anything about anybody who is not "the government".

There's also a law that says the federal government cannot declare a national religion, but nothing about localities doing it, but that's not the same, is it?

#27 The Fourteenth Amendment puts most of those restrictions onto the States.

There is no way a State could declare an official state religion.

The easiest way to know this is as follows: Not even the lowest educated, most "Christian" states have done it.

The "establishment of religion" clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the federal government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion. No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion. Neither a state nor the Federal Government can, openly or secretly, participate in the affairs of any religious organizations or groups and vice versa. In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect "a wall of separation between church and State." en.wikipedia.org

Look, I understand that you have no idea what federalism means, but seriously, stop commenting until you learn it.

In case you miss it, it explains why this statement is hilariously wrong.

Like when cancervatives proudly say this is a "christian" nation while following NONE of the teachings of Christ?

When cancervatives place the ten commandments in public buildings but refuse to allow a santanist sculpture?

WHen your side decides to start following those "laws" then you'll have a hill to stand on with this.

You live in North Carolina, a "right to work" state. An employer can fire any employee anytime for any reason or no reason. You most likely signed something acknowledging that when you were hired. ANY reason or NO reason. YOU built that.
