Violation Notice for Pro-Veterans Sign Prompts Backlash in O.C.

A warning to a Huntington Beach bar that it would have to remove a longstanding pro-veteran rooftop sign has stirred an angry response in the Orange County city.

The billboard, posted atop Johnny’s Saloon in a strip mall on busy Beach Boulevard, is a regular sight for drivers in the area.It reads: “Thank a veteran for your freedom,” alongside the logo for Johnny’s and the familiar POW-MIA symbol.

On Monday, the bar was notified that it would have two days to remove the sign because of a code violation, bartender Vicki Reimer said.

That generated a backlash against the city, an angry response on social media, and an online petition in favor of the sign.

In it  defense, the city’s response has nothing to do with the content of the sign, Mayor Connie Boardman emphasized. The construction of the sign — its metal frame and placement atop a building — are of concern, she said.

“Our code enforcement department is complaint driven. We are reactive, not proactive. So when we get a complaint, we follow up,” Boardman said.

On Wednesday, the city posted an update on its website emphasizing its “proud tradition of supporting our active military members and the veterans who have bravely served our country.”

Despite the explanation — and a 90-day extension for the bar — many remained upset.

“This is not right that people say, ‘That bothers me, tear it down,’” said Darrel Pague of Oath Keepers. ”That is wrong. That’s like saying, ‘Take down the American flag.’”
