This will not pass Constitutional muster. The First Amendment clearly permits peaceful protests. Anyone who hijacks a peaceful protest to do such riotous acts as looting, vandalism, arson, or assaults is culpable for such behavior. One might as well fault news organizations for giving the time and location of a protest if someone shows up to do something inconsistent with a peaceful protest.

This makes clear that the Florida GOP seeks to gut democracy in Florida. This could be used against practically anyone who protests or strikes. Something like this suggests that a fascist or communist symbol belongs on the state flag.
