Anti-Biden Flag Upsets Residents of Tennessee Town

By Hannah Claire Brimelow

Residents of Munford, Tennessee were unable to force a homeowner to remove an anti-Biden flag some deemed “vile.”

The flag reads “F— Biden and F— You For Voting For Him.”

Munford, with a population of just over 6,100 people, cast 2,667 votes for Donald Trump and 634 votes for Joe Biden in 2020.

The mayor, Dwayne Cole, said of the controversial flag “It’s vile. It’s vulgar. It’s protected speech under the Constitution … If I had the authority to make him take it down, I would definitely do that.”

After receiving complaints about the item, Cole consulted with the city’s attorney who confirmed the homeowner is within his rights to display the flag.

“The city does have an ordinance regulating campaign signs but, according to the mayor, that doesn’t apply here because it’s a political flag on someone’s porch, not an actual campaign sign in their yard,” reports WREG Memphis

One neighbor said the issue is not about politics, but rather about the language. Jay Dewitt, who lives near the residence displaying the flag, told a local news outlet “If it said (expletive) Trump I would have the same problem. I have children. I have two children. We have a lot of children in that community. The kids can see it.”

Munford is not the only town divided over the explicit flag.

In February, residents of Plymouth, Connecticut were “upset their community is being subject to such colorful political expressions” when “vulgar banners opposing the Joe Biden presidency have been spotted above a pair of homes,” the New York Daily News reported.  As in Tennessee, the homeowners were not required to remove the flags. Moreover, Capt. Edward Benecchi of the Plymouth police said his department was as responsible for protecting the homeowners’ rights as they were when protecting the rights of protesters who demonstrated against police brutality. 

The ‘F— Biden’ flag also caused a stir in Florida earlier this year. Cape Coral resident John Strasburger hung his expletive flag as a demonstration of his right to free speech. He said “I feel the election was stolen; I think the evidence was there to prove it.”

He also added that without an ordinance from the city compelling him to do so, he would not remove his flag.

In Jackson, Michigan, residents complained about the same style of flags but were unsuccessful in their bid to have them removed. Michigan prohibited the use of profanity in front of women and children until 2015 when Governor Rick Snyder repealed the law. 

Andrea Dick, of Roselle Park, New Jersey, refused to remove her cursing flags even after the city threatened to fine her $500 per day that they were displayed. In June, she had six flags outside her home, three of which included the phrase “F— Biden.”

The borough contends that the flags violate an ordinance prohibiting signs with “obscene, pornographic or lewd messages.” 

Dick argued “It’s freedom of speech. I have a right to hang my flags where I want to hang them. I’m going to tell you right now, I am not taking those flags down. They’ll have to fight me tooth and nail.”

Many versions of the flags are available online through independent virtual storefronts and Amazon vendors.

    So the gormless dumbfuck default Dems who enabled the political rapist Joe ‘Bumbles’ Biden to steal the election and creampie a hog-tied Lady Liberty are offended by some potty words.

    There’s a guy down the street from me with this flag and nobody cares… And I’m in Upstate NY.

    Saw one of these Saturday while at Safeway, smiling people were streaming to the vehicle to take pictures with their phones.

    F Biden and F

    I live in south Louisiana and these signs are everywhere. lol

    I actually live in Gatlinburg Tennessee, about 70 miles from Medford, and the funny thing is that sign is not that uncommon in this area. And I say no speech should be illegal, no flag should be illegal, I disagree with several flags out there but it should be your right as an American to fly it. Especially if it is the show disapproval of whoever is in the White House.

    Know your audience when displaying signs. Small children don’t need to see the F word or other curse words at an early age. I agree that Biden sucks and I feel the same expression in my heart at times…butits not necessary to be obscene within the context of a residential neighborhood. Even if its legal. Anways.. thats my thoughts on it. And one more thing since we are all adults here….. Fuck Biden!

    Maybe they are mad because it isn’t big enough.

  9. Bear says:

    I bet money if it said “Fuck Trump” , the people complaining would be bragging. It’s not about the words. They’re fine with showing dicks to children. It’s about the message.

    Fan-fucking-tastic! Fly that flag proudly and flip the bird to the sensitive losers who get offended by simple words. And to the weak parents out there who are too dumb to teach their kids the difference between right and wrong, just move to California. I hear they don’t talk to their kids on a regular basis, you’ll fit right in.

    ^ Agree 110%

    I saw this flag at an ABC store in NC lol. The people saying “it’s not about politics, it’s about the language” are full of shit. They’re just using children as an excuse to try and make them take the flag down. Be a fucking parent and tell them it’s a bad word that they shouldn’t say. Pretty damn simple.

    I live very close to this town. I don’t like the language but he has freedom to have anything he want’s on his property as long as he is not violating the constitution.

    FUCK Biden and FUCK You For Voting For Him

    Maybe take it as an opportunity to teach kids about horrible politicians instead of hand wringing about bad words.

  16. Scootouchard says:

    Those are some poor signs. I would prefer something more effective than 4 letter words such as, “Biden 4 Gitmo”, “Traitor Biden”, “CCB – Criminal Corrupt Biden”, “Biden Lost, ‘by a lot'”, “America under occupation by Biden coop”.
