Biden Flag ACLU

ACLU Rallies Behind Kansas Man Being Persecuted For Flying A “F-Biden” Flag, Got Charges Dropped

Could President Joe Biden be so toxic that even the ACLU has turned on him?

Most likely not in the broader sense, given the increasingly leftward drift of the American Civil Liberties Union in recent years.

Still, the ACLU helped deliver a win for a Kansas man who proudly and publicly advocated – as the euphemism goes – “Let’s go, Brandon.”

According to the Kansas City Star, city officials in Blue Rapids, Kansas, on Tuesday dropped charges against a resident, David Sain, who was being prosecuted for flying a “F–k Biden” flag.

The Star reported that Sain was originally charged with promoting obscenity. That was later amended to a complaint of creating a public nuisance.

The ACLU of Kansas said the city reversed course after it got involved.

According to the Star, the ACLU had issued a letter to the city asserting that prosecuting Sain was a blatant violation of the First Amendment and that the case should be dismissed.

Josh Pierson, a senior staff attorney for the ACLU of Kansas, told the Star, “Criminalizing the political expression inherent in Mr. Sain’s flag strikes at the core of the First Amendment.”

“Mr. Sain would not have been prosecuted at all had it not been for him engaging in protected First Amendment conduct. Not only is the prosecution unconstitutional, but it also sends a chilling message to all others who would express a political opinion with words some may find offensive.”

As for Sain, he’s happy to be able to continue taunting the president with impunity.

“I’m grateful that I can continue to express myself with my flag without the fear of prosecution,” he said in an ACLU press release.
