Crime to “Make Any Disloyal or Insulting Remark to or About the Troops”

Fla. Stats. § 250.51:

When troops of the Florida National Guard are at drill in their respective armories, on the streets, public roads, or other places, where such drills are conducted or when they are performing other duties required of them by the state or the United States, [it is a misdemeanor for a person to] make any disloyal or insulting remark to or about the troops or make any sign, motion, or gesture calculated to insult or humiliate the troops.

The statute was apparently enacted in 1921, but it was substantially edited by the Legislature in 2003 (changing the wording but not the substance).
