Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed into law a bill banning American flags and other hate symbols from public property.
This new law, aimed at protecting New Yorkers from potentially trauma-inducing imagery, comes at a time when demands for safety are at an all-time high.
“By limiting the display and sale of the American flag, Nazi swastika, and other symbols of hatred from being displayed or sold on state property, this will help safeguard New Yorkers from the fear-installing effects of these abhorrent symbols. And yeah, the red hats are covered by it too.”
• Governor Andrew Cuomo
While the American flag is now recognized by every major American university and Antifa chapter as a symbol of colonialism and oppression, it has yet to formally make it onto the Anti-Defamation League’s Hate on Display database.
But given the close relationship the elder Cuomo brother enjoys with the ADL — which recently bestowed up him their highest honor — surely this signifies a step in the
right proper direction.
