Boston-Area Auto Body Shop Owner FORCED To Take Down Sign After Snowflakes Find It “Derogatory”

Rob Roy is the owner of Rob Roy Auto in Salisbury, Massachusetts, and he has a rather unusual hobby. Besides being a businessman, he likes to stir up political drama with some of his homemade signs that he posts outside his shop. He has been doing this for years, but it is his latest choice of signs that seems to be getting him in some hot water.
There is no question that Roy is proud of some of the signs that he has posted, including one of his controversial ones, which was a picture of a Confederate flag that had the description that it was something that “thousands of Americans had bled and died for.”

Naturally, Rob was indeed slammed for that sign, but perhaps not surprisingly, that isn’t his biggest offender. He actually has recently put up a sign that mocks Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, calling them a name that is often used as an offensive term for describing women. This sign will also be offensive to snowflakes simply because it also includes a sexually explicit insult that is directed at this U.S. Presidential campaign ticket. 

When the snowflakes demanded an explanation for why he would put up such an offensive sign, Roy essentially said that it’s “satire” and that they should “get over it.” 

“I think that Harris is a tool for the left,” Rob said. “That’s definitely the entire meaning behind my sign. Of course, I meant it to be satire, and of course, the left didn’t take it that way.” Another one of his signs read: “Sue O’Connell will sit down with Democratic political strategist Alethea Harney, and they will talk about some of the biggest takeaways from the speech from Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris and what LIES AHEAD (Caps Ours) for her as she goes out on the campaign trail.”

Did everyone understand the sign? No. However, many of the neighbors and town officials DID understand the sign, but they didn’t think that it was funny. After all, Massachusetts has hardly ever been known as a bastion of conservatism. Maybe about three centuries ago in colonial days, but I digress. 

“In poor taste, disgusting, and definitely derogatory to Senator Harris,” Town Manager Neil Harrington said. 

“I don’t know how he gets away with these signs of his own,” one nearby Newburyport parent said. “It’s definitely an embarrassment for me to have to drive by one of his signs with my child in the care no less and then have to explain to them what he is going to do.” However, even though Michelle Robbins has expressed her displeasure, it has done nothing to sway Roy’s opinion in the least.

Simply put, Roy said that he knew all too well that the sign he was promoting would spark a reaction.

“This is what its all about, forcing people out of their comfort zones and making them talk politics, whether they be good or bad,” he said. “Yes, I did indeed put up this sign, and I was fully aware that there were some people who were going to get offended by it.”

That wasn’t the end of the story though. The narrative on the sign continued, reading that “the New York Times had spoke to several female political candidates from throughout the country who continue to take a stand against others who might give them negative consequences regarding their physical appearance or just basically sexual references.”

Roy finally decided to take down his sign after he had received at least a couple hundred complaints.
Of course, Manager Harrington has weighed in, saying that even though hundreds of people find Roy’s signs offensive, he still has a right to post what he wants on his OWN property. “He does occasionally cross the line, and this time was definitely an example. He actually went way over the line and made a lot of people upset,” Harrington said.
Of course, the other wrinkle is that there are residents by Roy’s auto shop that are complaining about his signs, saying that they too are tired of them. Moreover, people will often slow down to take pictures and it usually causes traffic problems.
