You look at that, and tell me that man is not at least 50% hot dog.

"Defendants argue that, under this Act, professors enjoy 'academic freedom' so long as they express only those viewpoints of which the State approves. This is positively dystopian."

Perfectly put.

But what about all those white kids who will get depressed from all the guilt over slavery?  Man, I remember my freshman year the whole dorm was so despondent about it.  The Cosby Show was just starting and the stark contrast between seeing a successful professional black family on TV and the studying the gruesome reality of slavery in class was almost too much.  A couple of guys on the 3rd floor even quit school because of white guilt.  Thank god for Reagan and Ayn Rand to lift us all out of that funk.

...expands Florida's anti-discrimination laws to prohibit schools and companies from leveling guilt or blame to students and employees based on race or sex, takes aim at lessons over issues like "white privilege" by creating new protections for students and workers, including that a person should not be instructed to "feel guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress" due to their race, color, sex or national origin.

I'm having a hard time picturing a teacher of ANY ethnicity saying "Now that you know the truth about your history, BE ASHAMED, WHITE KIDS!"

And if DeathSantis has a problem with teaching history accurately, he needs to move his ass to Russia. Along with his whole fascist congress.

/in fact, they should move to Russia anyway

The problem is that each side is trying to preach from the absolute fringes.  And ANY fringe is a bad thing.  Our society cannot survive by only holding to the absolute fringe of any view.  It takes some of every viewpoint mixed with the common sense to know what is good and what is bad in order to effectively make a working society that has a chance of lasting for 2 or 3 more centuries.

Aren't feelings a libby lib thing in the first place? So anyone feeling guilty about their ancestors' sordid history should be a secret librul by that logic.

Does DeSantis need a safe space and a cry room? Or a therapy pet to protect him from all this wokeness?

"If, for example, a professor instructs students that in some period in history, individuals' status as either privileged or oppressed was necessarily determined by race, that instruction does not violate the Act," attorneys for the state wrote. "The professor has merely described historical factual circumstances, not personally endorsed the view that an individual's status today is necessarily determined by race."

Is the state of Florida gonna give specific cut off dates for when talking about oppression and discrimination for any applicable groups is protected as historical fact and when professors are crossing the line into 'wokeness'?

Seems to me that fair application of this law would require some clarity the legislature was unwilling to provide either because they are too dumb to do it, afraid of how it will look when they say out loud when they think these cut offs should be, and/or intentionally leaving it vague to apply the law arbitrarily.

Well we have let them successfully demonize words like liberal and bastardize "socialism" to the point where it is defined as a form of government. We have to be like Fetterman and take shots at them too. Dem politicians need to grow a spine.

"'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen,' and the powers in charge of Florida's public university system have declared the State has unfettered authority to muzzle its professors in the name of 'freedom,'" Walker wrote, citing George Orwell's novel "1984."


Big brother's screaming but we don't care
Cause he's got nothing to say
Think of the future, think of the prophecy
Think of the children of today
Big brother's marching
So we all stand in his way

I sincerely wonder how they'd like to be referred to as if they aren't "woke". Woke simply means "alert to injustice".  They're not interested in injustice?  I guess in this case the opposite of woke is "ignorant".

Trump is kind of all or nothing. He's mostly impotent, until he's not. That's 100% because of his cult, not him.

I don't see DeSantis having the same cult Trump did. He will be more effective and will set us back if he gets elected president. But I don't think there's a real danger of democracy collapsing under his watch. He'll "just" weaken it, albeit quite effectively.
