“The bill reads: the term “symbols of hate” shall include, but not be limited to, symbols of white supremacy, neo-Nazi ideology, or the Battle Flag of the Confederacy. [emphasis added]
“The law prohibits the displaying or sale of the ‘symbol’ on any state property, including fairgrounds and parks.
“No further guidelines were written into the bill–nor did it lay out who would determine what symbols would be deemed hateful.”
