Sheriff's Panties in a Twist Over Truck With Anti-Trump Message

By Robert Paul Reyes

"One Texas motorist apparently found the perfect sticker to express certain feelings about how this past year has gone and so it was plastered, big and bold on the rear window of a truck.


It was eye catching, to be sure, and a picture of the truck eventually made its way all the way to the desk of Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, who said in a Facebook post that he had received `numerous calls regarding the offensive display.`

`If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you. Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it,` Nehls wrote in his message, issuing what could appear to be a thinly veiled warning."

The Root

Everything is bigger is Texas, even bumper stickers. In fact this sign is too big to fit on the bumper, it`s a huge decal that covers most of the rear window in the patriot`s truck.

Bumper stickers are even more brief and concise that a tweet, they are meant to capture your attention, and this gentleman`s profane message has elicited as much publicity as Trump`s profane tweets.

The anti-Trump is offensive, but free speech is often offensive. The sheriff is entitled to express his disapproval of the sticker, but he is totally off base in trying to intimidate the owner of the truck into modifying his message. Fuc* the sheriff, you don`t modify free speech.

The anti-Trump sticker is nowhere near as offensive as the racist and misogynist rhetoric that emanates from the White House on a daily basis.

Sheriff get your priorities in order, you should be railing against the abomination that sits in the Oval Office.
