DeSantis makes NHL back down on discriminatory job fair
The National Hockey League backpedaled on a job fair posting after the office of Florida Governor Ron Desantis (R) condemned it as “discriminatory.”
The posting was for an event called the Pathway to Hockey Summit and a LinkedIn post said participants in the February event needed to check off certain diversity boxes.
“Participants must be 18 years of age or older, based in the U.S., and
identify as female, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, and/or a person with a disability. Veterans are also welcome and encouraged to attend,” the description of the event read, according to Fox News.
The LinkedIn posting was taken down shortly after that statement.

I'm progressive and have never voted for the GOP, and never will. Listen up folks, our side needs to wake the fuck up and realize this anti-woke stuff resonates.
Even as maga candidates lost across the board in the last election, DeSantis beat his opponent by 19 points. It was the biggest win in the state's modern history. His message is working.
This culture war shit resonates with people on both sides of the aisle. That's a fact that we have to wrestle with.
And by the way, this NHL job fair IS discriminatory. If you were a straight white guy, why not identify as non-binary if it gets you into this job fair? We all know that non-binary is made-up bullshit anyway.
But hey, if it gets you an interview at a job fair like this, I guarantee you every straight white dude is going to identify as enby to get his foot in the door.

I hate to say this, since he's a gross and offensive pig, but he is on absolutely firm ground legally: you are indeed forbidden by federal law from making those kinds of discriminations based on race and gender and ability in hiring, even to hire disadvantaged persons.
If you think that law is unfair, then you will need to argue the law needs to be changed. But that is absolutely what federal law dictates right now.

Florida has gained more Republican voters than Democratic since 2008, but it's gone from 6% favorable to Democrats to zero spread, over a 12-year period.
Much of that is due to the older population that continually migrates there; in fact, if you go by age, Florida leans slightly Democratic compared to the rest of the country. Per Pew, 50% of those over the age of 50 voted Repug in 2020 nationally, while only 44% of that age group voted Repub in 2020 in Florida.
The biggest change in Florida has been to non-affiliated voters, who were 19% of the electorate in 2008, but 26% of the electorate in 2020.
Based on these actual figures, as compared to some troll's comments on DL, I'd have to see some actual proof that Democratic Floridians switched to Republican and voted for DeSantis because of "the woke."

R26 I'm the one who made the observation about DeSantis & the fact that his popularity is based on anti-wokeness. If you're so damn smart then tell us why he had the biggest margin of victory in modern Florida politics.
Is it his economic policies? I don't think so. He's openly hostile towards Disney and the cruise industry. He's going to saddle property owners in and around Orlando with a 20% property tax increase due to him & the GOP-controlled legislature stripping away Disney's special tax status.
All he ever does are cheap stunts like sending migrants to Martha's Vineyard. His base loves that sort of trolling. Some Independents & Dems like that anti-immigrant trolling as well.
You can continue to delude yourself and call the rest of us "repugs" or "rethugs" but the fact is this: Just because we're not on board with woke ideology, it doesn't mean that we're Republicans. It simply means that we are for common sense policies.

R53, men as a whole have been lagging behind women. There is a wage gap - single unmarried women now earn more than single unmarried men.
Women and men are getting bachelors degrees at a ratio of about 6 to 4.
This is going to have consequences to family formations — women tend to be hypergamous and there will be an oversupply of educated women and a scarcity of educated men.
Why do you think educated black women have it so bad finding eligible black men? When a bunch of black men are criminals, there is high demand for eligible black men — consequently, the eligible black men don’t commit to any of the women because they’ve got women knocking at their door.
That’s just a foreshadowing of what’s going to happen to white people if you continue focusing on blazing trails for women at the expense of giving men equal attention.

R68, there's always sperm banks. And truth be told, most women would be happy without a man. Most women don't care about sex. The only reason women have been with men in the past is for the money & for survival. When they can earn enough to support themselves, many women find they don't need a man. And that's why so many black women identify and live lives as lesbians. They don't need men for anything.

Rhonda worked through the Trump years trying to out-Trump Trump. He decided the future was in white supremacist conservatism, but the winds shifted. Trump's brand of politics is clearly tainted; he packed SCOTUS and they overreached with overturning Roe, the GOP is eating itself, and the rest of the country, outside of Florida and some predictably deep red areas, has largely had enough right wing nuttery to last a generation. The Democrats are winning the WH and retaking the House in 2024.
There is no grassroots nostalgia for Trump outside of QAnon dead-enders. Rhonda has nothing to run on except divisive policies and a long list of quotes and speeches that are aging like curdled milk. He was always a bit of a laughing stock, with his middle-manager personality, looking like pork sausage stuffed into a business suit, his new anchor bobble head of a wife, and photo ops like the Nancy Sinatra boots providing endless memes and late night jokes.

Fortunately, enough voters equate Republicans with some sort of Handmaid Tale social issues regression that their appeal is limited.
Many voters are disgusted with both parties, but very liberal white democrats, and victimhood-espousing intellectuals of color aren't interested in that.

Sometimes I wonder whether some of these posters are very bitter non-whites clinging to victim mentality, or very far left white liberals?

Indeed, R105 - decades ago, long before all this cancel culture revved up, a liberal radio host said that censorship from the left is just as bad as a censorship from the right.
