A Pro-Trump woman from New Jersey has reportedly been ordered to take down profane signage against President Joe Biden from her lawn, including a "F–k Biden" sign, or face a daily fine of $250, according to authorities.

Gary Bundy, Roselle Park Municipal Court Judge, in his ruling, upheld that the signs were in violation of local ordinances that ban public obscenity. The signs were reportedly posted on the lawn of Jersey homeowner, Patricia Dilascio, but she maintains that it was her daughter, Andrea Dick, that had allegedly put up the three signs, one of which included the "F-word" on display.

They were reportedly ordered to remove the signs within a week or pay at least $250 in sanctions per day, the Sun reported.

“This is not a case about politics. It is a case, pure and simple, about language,” Bundy said. “It is clear from state law and statutes that we cannot simply put up the umbrella of the First Amendment and say everything and anything is protected speech.”

Bundy said that the other less profane anti-Biden signs like “Socialism Sucks: Biden Blows” that were also on the property could remain and need not be removed.

Joseph Signorello III, Roselle Park Mayor, a Democrat who is running for state Senate in Union County, pointed out that the home is close to an elementary school and said that the signs had angered some residents in the area, according to NJ.com.

Dick reportedly defended her signs, saying that her political speech is protected by the First Amendment and that she would not remove them. On Thursday, July 15, Dick and her mom attended the virtual hearing.

A notice of violation was issued against the property owner by a borough code enforcement officer last month. The ordinance prohibits displaying “any obscene material, communication or performance or other article or item which is obscene within the Borough.”

Michael Campagna, representing Dilascio, reportedly argued that standards for obscenity have changed over the years. He said that the f-word no longer has a sexual undertone like before and that it is simply a colloquialism. In a bizarre turn, Campagna reportedly compared the judge's decision to Nazi Germany.

“In Nazi Germany, when Hitler didn’t like something, they burned the books and then they burned the people,” Campagna said. “I don’t think we want that to happen in Roselle Park.”

While handing down his ruling, Bunty said that different words should be used to describe disappointment over the presidential election.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a Brooklyn man has been arrested on Thursday, July 15, for allegedly spray-painting “s–t” in large black letters on at least five NYPD vehicles, the New York Post reported.

Kenneth Anderson, 39, was reportedly spotted acting suspiciously outside the 75th Precinct station house in East New York at noon. When he was chased and caught by the police, a hammer and a can of black spray paint, which was still wet from use, were found in his bag.

When questioned, he reportedly admitted that he targeted the vehicles because he does not like the police.
