Vulgar anti-Biden flag in NJ raise questions

[link:https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/columnists/mike-kelly/2021/03/02/rochelle-park-nj-vulgar-flag-president-biden-battle-free-speech/4549424001/|

The man who brought Rochelle Park to this constitutional moment is a 46-year-old former police officer and retired U.S. Army reserve sergeant who now works as a school resource officer and security guard in Bogota, where he was featured in a teaching program for students to “Be the 'I' in Kind” and to "take extra steps to help someone use nice words to others."

Say hello to Gary Bendit.

He’s a registered Democrat who says he voted twice for Barack Obama before embracing Trump.

2. My bad....

A registered Democrat-turned-Trumper ran up a couple flags in Rochelle Park, NJ (one says "FUCK BIDEN" and the other is an upside-down American flag). Basically the new mayor is trying to figure out what to do, since people have complained. Concerned about first amendment. The dude in question says people said bad stuff about Trump, so he can say bad stuff about Biden. Loser.

An American flag was deliberately attached upside down. Another flag carries a vulgar message about President Joe Biden.

7. That's the exact flag

an idiot trumper neighbor of mine has. Wife and I have both reported it to HOA, but the guy still has it up. HOA claims they are working on getting it removed. Not sure what they can do, other than send threatening letters.

4. That should help get out the Democrat voters.

My neighborhood was inundated with Fuck Your Feelings Trump 2020 banners and stickers during the last year.

Civil responsibility and common decency is dead in Republicanland.

And his community is entitled to ostracize him in every way

10. I've see FUCK TRUMP with upside down American flags

It’s the first amendment. There’s nothing to do…or that should be done.

11. You can ban all flags or no flags

Many moons ago when I was in the Army, my unit 1SG got into a bit of trouble. He banned the display of any flag except the US Flag. Soldiers had a habit of putting flags to cover windows, in my unit the Puerto Rican flag was the most popular. Well a rep from the Provost Marshal came by one day and basicaly said all flags or no flags. So the unit commander decided that we could display any flag we wanted.
