If you drive down state Route 28 through Milford you will see the very large Trump billboard and several large Trump flags hanging.
There were hundreds of MAGA flags but now some owners are removing them because the city forced them to!
A Milford man was told she has to take down his Trump flag, and it wasn’t his Home Owners Association telling him to do so, it’s the city.
McDade was told he had to take down his “Trump 2020” flag that’s flying on his front yard because it’s against city ordinance. He says he received a letter was told if he doesn’t take it down, he’d face hundreds of dollars in fines.
But unlike some of his neighbors the man decided to take down the Trump flag and replace it with “F**k Biden Harris Is Not My President” flag.
Luckily for us he decided to film the whole situation and sent us a footage!
“It’s my freedom. This is my yard,” said McDade.
McDade argues taking the flag down is against his First Amendment right.
Part of the letter sent to her says, “Flying the Trump flag, you tell all your neighbors that you disrespect them.”
“I don’t disrespect anybody in my neighborhood, I treat everybody the same,” said McDade.
The letter goes on to say that removing the flag will bring peace to the neighborhood.
“People have to understand I don’t stop them from doing what they want to do,” said McDade. “They have no right to stop me from what I want to do in my yard.”
Bottom line, he thinks the letter is foolish.
“Quit being so negative about everything. Everyone has a right to their opinion, and I usually keep my opinion to myself, but that’s my flag and it’s staying,” said McDade.
His neighbors will be even more infuriated by his new flag.
