We asked her - why would put this in front of your home?

"Because they're trying to take my house," she yelled. "Don't you understand?"

So, this person has a beef with their HOA, so puts up something aggrandizing Hitler?  If you hate HOAs so much, why the fark did you buy a house that was located in an HOA?

Well, I don't know this woman; but, I want her out of the neighborhood.

No, you don't.

You don't live in her neighbourhood. You don't know where she might move if she leaves. You don't want to live in the same neighbourhood as her

Ergo, she should stay where she is

The HOA, who I assume she was totally cool with as long as they were harassing other people.

The problem here is that they're eliminating the anonymous part and just going into true awful, at full speed.

Did your situation get resolved?

So ... lets leave aside that this is, how shall we say, "in bad taste".

I am still confused if this woman is pro- or anti-nazi or option C.  Is this meant to be "Nazis are scary!  There is nothing more horrifying than the works of man!  Read some Harlan Ellison!"  or "Yeah!  Go Nazis!  Tha joos are comin' to take mah house!"

Because honestly right now all I can conclude is Option C: that this woman put up the display just to piss off her neighbors and can't be bothered to scrape two brain cells together to ponder what this looks like to everyone else.

"We had a chance to ask her, and she told us it all began with her HOA. She claims she's been battling them over landscaping for months. "

I dunno lady. If this is your idea of acceptable lawn decor maybe the HOA has a point.

Someone should warn her insurance carrier. I'm sure they'd love to know their client is engaging in behavior that's likely to increase her risk of the property being damaged. Oddly enough, insurers will often cancel policies (and perhaps resign at steeper rates) if they believe their clients are behaving recklessly.

If only she could have sought advice from a realtor about the drawbacks of HOAs.  Oh, wait...

Yeah... after I hit the "Add Comment" I thought maybe instead I should have said "bigoted."  Or maybe just left it at "stupid assholes."

She self identified as Jewish. She was comparing the HOA to Nazis.

For people who say she shouldn't be in an HOA... I live in Tampa Bay (crazy lady lives in New Port Richey). Every neighborhood has an HOA. It may be small and inactive or large and busy body oriented, but that's just how it is here. Maybe the trailer parks don't have HOAs? I don't know.

I'm not sure what her problem with the landscaping is, but some of the HOAs are so expensive it can impact your ability to maintain property. Maybe she's just nuts and doesn't want to follow the rules (likely). Or maybe she signed up for one of the $350+ a month areas instead of the $50 a month areas.

Whatever the case, HOAs exist in part to push out people like here. She will just expedite the process.

"Because they're trying to take my house," she yelled. "Don't you understand?"


This is either evidence that she has mental issues, or evidence that the article leaves out significant portions of the interview in the interests of sensationalism.

She seems to be demonstrating exactly why an HOA might be a good idea.

To keep your neighbors from putting up an ode to Auschwitz in their front yard.

/To be clear, I don't think HOAs are a good idea, generally.
