To the editor:
To the resident on Thomas Street in Ripon displaying the profane flag in the front of your house. Apparently you have the right to this freedom of speech no matter who you offend.
However, I hope you would please consider the message you are sending to our children as you are within a few blocks of a park, a school and across from a church with a preschool. Please consider the message you are sending to visitors to Ripon or our neighboring communities.
The hate you display serves no purpose. Joseph Biden was fairly elected as our president whether you want to accept that or not. I’m sure you have no problem accepting the benefits he provided to you in the American Rescue Plan. Your flag display is not only embarrassing to Ripon, but should be an embarrassment to yourself. Please consider your neighbors & remove it.
