Some homeowners on Cleary Avenue are finding their neighbor’s Halloween display more garish than ghostly.
The decorations include a mannequin dressed as a tortured captive of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a hanged mannequin dressed as a murdered soldier and a machete-wielding mannequin wearing a mask of President Barack Obama.
The homeowner who erected the display told NJ Advance Media he didn’t believe his decorations were anti-American and that his critics were trying “to stifle his freedom of speech.”
“We in this house do not like ISIS,” said the homeowner, who asked that he only be identified as Matt. “What greater scary man is there than the real threat among us?”
AlexJo Natale, who lives across the street in a home bearing two POW/MIA flags, said she knows that her neighbor “really likes Halloween” but that his “tasteless” decorations aren’t something she enjoys seeing the first thing in the morning.
“I think it’s tasteless and un-American,” Natale said. “Like it or not, Halloween is now viewed as a kids’ holiday. That’s not (a house) I would think a lot of parents would want their kids trick or treating at.”
But, she added, “it’s his property, he can do what he wants. It’s just not something I would really like to see.”
