I’ll be uncharacteristically brief: I think she is.
As I stated in the previous post, her conduct was unethical. She was uncivil and disrespectful to her neighbors. Posting “Fuck Biden” signs is protected speech, but it is still unethical speech. She isn’t doing any good by posting such rhetoric. She setting out to annoy and irritate people, while being verbally assault to her nation’s leader. She has no defense, other than the claim that she has a right to be an asshole. And indeed she has.
However, now that the government is attempting to abridge her rights of free expression and speech, and using an inapplicable obscenity ordinance to do it, she has a patriotic, legal and ethical duty to oppose the efforts to silence her even though she should have shut up in the first place.
Ironically, although her signs and banners represent unethical behavior, she has created an obligation for herself to stand behind them. This will take courage and resources, but it appears that she will not be intimidated. Good. Her abuses of free speech must be protected lest free speech itself be diminished.
Andrea may be an asshole, but she is not a weenie, like so, so many Americans of far greater power and influence than she who have been intimidated into apologizing and retracting their political or social views. We have little to fear from assholes. America was built by assholes—stubborn, ornery iconoclasts who marched to their own drummers and didn’t care who liked it. Weenies, however, are an existential threat. Weenies strip away our rights by being too timid to fight for their own.
Andrea Dick is now an Ethics Hero. After she wins, she can prove she’s not an asshole by taking down her “Fuck Biden” signs because she decides to, and not because the government demands it.
