A Michigan man is standing his ground as neighbors complain about a profane anti-Biden flag flying in front of his home.
“F— Biden,” the flag, posted in front of a home in Jackson, Michigan, says. “And f— you for voting for him.”
One of the man’s neighbors, a self-proclaimed Republican named Steven Gilbert, referred to the sign as “so offensive” and said that he’s concerned young children are seeing it.
“Saturday afternoon, we were getting ready to go out to lunch, and sure enough, there’s the sign, and I’m like, ‘Really? That’s just so offensive,’” Gilbert said, adding, “It’s the word itself. It’s not the statement that it’s making. It’s that word.”
Other neighbors reportedly agreed with Gilbert that the sign should be taken down but chose not to speak on camera.
Gilbert said he called the Jackson Police, who said there was nothing they could do about the flag due to the First Amendment. However, a city spokesperson said a city ordinance does exist prohibiting “obscene” signs.
The flag appears to be widely available, with a search on Amazon.com bringing up several options in various sizes ranging from around $5 to $12.
