Federal Judge Blocks Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Anti-Woke Reforms
Key provisions of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ legislation against wokeness in the workplace have been struck down by a federal court.
Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker blocked the “Stop WOKE Act,” claiming that institutional anti-white racism in the workplace is protected by the 1st Amendment.
“If Florida truly believes we live in a post-racial society, then let it make its case,” Walker wrote. “But it cannot win the argument by muzzling its opponents. Because, without justification, the [law] attacks ideas, not conduct, Plaintiffs are substantially likely to succeed on the merits of this lawsuit.”
The law had banned the teaching of critical race theory in the workplace. It banned any teachings or trainings indicating that any “individual, by virtue of his or her race, color, sex, or national origin, bears personal responsibility for and must feel guilt, anguish, or other forms of psychological distress because of actions, in which the individual played no part, committed in the past by other members of the same race, color, sex, or national origin.”
The feds are making it clear that the new national religion of CRT will be protected no matter what the states or the people decide. More lawsuits are coming to nullify educational provisions from the “Stop WOKE Act” next.
Big League Politics has reported on DeSantis’ crusade against woke-ism in his state of Florida:
“Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is vowing to fight the “ministry of truth” that is being enacted by President-imposed Joe Biden to supposedly fight disinformation on social media.
“You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country,” DeSantis said. “We’re not going to let Biden get away with this one. We will be fighting back.”
