A woman has found herself in the battle of a lifetime after locking horns with the community around her. As it turns out, her passionate signs have those who hate President Donald Trump downright furious — and now, she’s being threatened with jail time all over the 5 simple words she put up for everyone to see.
There’s no arguing that tolerance is least on the list of priorities for liberals, even though it’s one of their most favorite words, and they don’t seem to mind proving that time and time again. Although they claim to be the most “accepting,” the fact that they don’t tolerate anyone else’s opinions outside of their own goes to show they really don’t understand the meanings of their own keywords that they love to throw around.
At this point, America has been made well aware of their burning hatred for President Donald Trump, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. In fact, Trump-haters aren’t too happy as indicated by at least one complaint with the signs that a 75-year-old woman in Maine just put up on her own property — and they’re causing quite the stir.
According to BizPac Review, Rockland resident Susan Reitman’s signs have become so troublesome that local officials are telling her to take them down or else be subjected to fines, or worse, jail time. In all, her message is clear, as the five simple words on her sign read, “He won. Get over it.”
Come to find out, local officials are so upset with the woman’s sign that they’ve found a legal precedence to force her to take them down. As her area’s zoning laws outline, signs – even the ones on private property – aren’t to be bigger than 2 square feet without a permit.
Of course, it wasn’t long before people started pointing out that a flag is over the specified dimensions and you don’t need a permit for those, but the town is adamant. “I admire your passion for our president. Truly, I do,” Rockland Assistant Code Officer Bill Butler wrote to Susan in an email, according to the Portland Press Herald. “However, we have received a complaint and I have to do my due diligence and I have determined your signs are not in compliance with the Rockland Code.”
Too bad for him, this is one Trump supporter who has no intentions of backing down. “If I have to sit in jail for the rest of eternity, that’s my choice,” she defiantly said. “I guess I’m being stubborn … but I’m not going to back down from what I believe.”
In fact, the woman is so ready to go that she has already declared that she isn’t going to pay the fines they slap her with either. Currently, the town can charge her anywhere between $100 and $1,000 a day for having the signs up and, if she still fails to comply, can throw her in jail.
The town has since explained to Susan that she can “apply for a permit” to hang the sings, but she says she’ll do no such thing. In fact, the Trump supporter has since turned things around to say that the ordinance needs to change in order to allow unrestricted free speech on private property.
In the end, not too many people would argue with that. After all, it is her house and it is her land – so, she should be able to do with it as she pleases. Although zoning officials are saying that it’s against the law, they didn’t seem to have a problem with it until a butthurt liberal started to complain about it, and that makes this a serious problem. Our rights are under attack by the left, and if we don’t do something about it soon, it’ll be too late to stop the disastrous momentum.
