In Calvert County, Maryland, a billboard located near the intersection of Route 4 and Bowie Shop Road in Huntingtown has become the subject of controversy.
Of course, it’s mainly caused a commotion among the liberals as it shows cartoon versions of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in feces.
“DON’T BLAME TRUMP! YOU ARE STUCK WITH THESE TWO SH*THEADS!!!” the sign reads.
“It’s just vulgar. It doesn’t reflect Calvert County,” said the Calvert County Democratic Central Committee chairwoman, Jeanette Flaim. “Kids are going to school, and they’re going by it every day, and parents are driving their kids. We just don’t think kids should have to see that or parents should have to explain that.”
But, according to county commissioners, Flaim and other residents may not have a choice.
“There is nothing that we as county government can do for language that’s on a legal sign,” Board of County Commissioners President Buddy Hance said, citing a 2015 Supreme Court Decision in Reed v. Town of Gilbert.
“You know this country was built on the foundation of free speech, and sometimes we like what that free speech says and sometimes we don’t,” he added.
Of course, Flaim claims that it is not just a free speech issue. “We have not complained about any other signs,” she said. “It’s this sign we think is, again, damaging to all of us, all of us in Calvert. The GOP, the Independents, everybody.”
