KY Fair Board Could Ban Nazi, White-Supremacist Item Sales

(Louisville, KY) - A Kentucky State Fair Board official says the sale of Nazi and white-supremacist items at the Fair Board's state-owned buildings could end.  

Fair Board chairman Dr. Mark Lynn says he'll introduce a proposal to ban the sale of the items at the panel's November 15th meeting.  

Nazi Christmas ornaments, Confederate flags and a Ku Klux Klan robe were spotted for sale by vendors at the National Gun Day show last weekend.

It would prevent vendors from selling offensive items like those associated with the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis, including anything featuring a swastika.  

The proposal would also prevent such items from being hung. 

LISTEN: Cody Patterson from the Kentucky Venues talked with Terry Meiners about the Ku Klux Klan robe and Nazi memorabilia that were on sale at a gun show over the weekend, banning those items in the future, and the display of “history”.

Rex Chapman and Mike Pratt say they want their Kentucky Hall of Fame plaques taken down at Freedom Hall if nothing is done after Nazi and Ku Klux Klan items were sold last weekend.

 

Kentucky Venues officials called the items unacceptable, but said many events are run by show managers who lease the space.
