A Texas sheriff is under fire for making a Facebook post about his intention to take punitive measures against a truck driver displaying a bumper sticker declaring “FUCK TRUMP AND FUCK YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.”

On Wednesday morning, Sheriff Troy E. Nehls of Fort Bend County, Texas, posted a picture of the back of a truck asking members of the community to help him find the ‘offender.’

“I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you,” he said.

Nehls apparently already sought to impose punishment, adding, “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.”

He also posted a picture in the comments of legal code concerning disorderly conduct, apparently attempting to justify his attempt to suppress free speech by suggesting the truck driver was instigating a breach of the peace.

The statute, Sec. 42.01, says “a person commits an offense if he intentionally or knowingly uses abusive, indecent, profane or vulgar language, and the language by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace,” or if it “makes an offensive gesture of display in a public place, and the gesture or display tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace.

Attempting to cite this statute suggests Trump supporters could be so triggered by free speech about the president they might incite violence, a particularly hilarious notion considering the right has spent months virtue signaling about the first amendment and scolding leftists for being violent snowflakes.

And the Internet responded swiftly as thousands of commenters flowed in offering relentless trolling, thoughtful defenses of free speech, and cutting rebukes of partisan hypocrisy. The trolls were numerous:

Other commenters were straightforward and to the point, citing previous court decisions and defenses of free speech:

fuck trump

Still others tackled partisan hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance:

Some commenters defended the sheriff and received immediate responses:

A couple pointed out the fact that people actually called the police because they were so offended:

The truck driver also received an offer from a lawyer and former prosecutor for free legal assistance:

The ACLU of Texas also chimed in:

Sheriff Troy E. Nehls, Constitutional Law 101: You can’t ban speech just because it has ‘f@ck’ in it.

“Hey truck owner, feel free to contact the ACLU of Texas.”

    The sheriff only needs to show up after the ass-kicking of this idiot.

    • To arrest those who committed said assault and battery, which aren’t protected by the Bill of Rights. I hope you aren’t an American, but you are probably one of the millions of ignorant traitors in our military.

  • Fearthenut

    Fuck Liberals. And fuck you for voting liberal.

  • Jerry Struthers

    The sheriff can go FUCK himself.

  • idontknow

    Hey sheriff. In a free society, we just say fuk you too…

    • You are right. I’ll tell you what- the next time you get pulled over, why not try saying that to the cop. Please have a go pro rolling as I would LOVE to see the reaction to that!

      • idontknow

        Maybe you have a hard time reading. I hope you are good at math…

  • dav1bg

    High quality people these liberals. I don’t remember seeing fuck odumbass.

    • I ran a bumper sticker that said Obama is Osama, had portraits of both.

    • Tom J

      You didnt need to have a bumper sticker for Odumbass. Everybody already knew he was a idiot.

  • Herman Nelson

    Hmmmm.. I was surprised to see that on a pickup. I was expecting to see it on a chevy volt, a prius or some other douchbag car that a democrat would drive. The guy has every right to express himself. I think the sheriff went over board. The sheriff could’ve done society a bigger favor and put the truck owner on a watch list. You never know, those crazy democrats go off like dud grenades. Just like the last 5 or 6 mass shooters.

    • Most people buy their WIVES a large SUV or Pickup Truck to save their lame driving skills from dying.

  • YeahRightOkay

    …now the rest of the story…the woman who owns this pick-up…has 12 kids…now you know the reason behind this…and the rest of the story…

    • Regardless, bag her over crimes committed not for Free Speech.

  • I am kind of on the fence about this. You know DAMN well if we had “fuck the kenyan obama and all the fucktard liberals that voted for him” we would be harassed daily and arrested for being racist in any liberal state, not to mention the fact our vehicle would be vandalized and/or torched by the fucktard liberals. WE have had to eat shit for the last EIGHT years with that loser in office, now the liberals need to eat shit and shut the fuck up.

    What if we had a bumper sticker that said fuck all muslims, jews, etc? Again, we would be prosecuted for hate crimes, but liberals get a free pass and call it freedo of speech. How many Conservative speakers have been shut down at any given college or other venues? More than a liberal can count, that’s for sure. Liberals and anyone on the left is all for free speech so long as they agree with it.

  • YeahRightOkay

    …UPDATE…!!!…she did get arrested…!!!…not for this…but for an outstanding warrant…for trying to scam the system…besides having 12 kids…this is turning out not what the lame stream media thought…!!!…Roflmaf…!!!

    • Herman Nelson

      12 kids?? Can we say welfare queen, I knew you could!

  • Fuck the Sheriff.
    1st Amendment is most precious when you Don’t Agree with what is being said.
    If I had “Fuck Osama” or “Fuck Clintons” during their years of presidency it is my right to display it on my vehicle.
    Fuck Offended Snowflakes . Hey I might make that a bumper sticker.

  • Ernie Engle

    Typical Lib-ra-tard mentality, bet you this a-hole was not up in arms when people called Obummer the “N” word.
