Ron DeSantis Uses NHL, Anti-Black Agenda, To Fight Woke Wars
The NHL recently had what seemed like a sensible idea. It was a job fair to be held on February 2nd called “Pathway to Hockey Summit”.
“Entrants must be 18 years or older, located in the United States, and identify as female, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, LGBTQIA+, and/or persons with disabilities. veterans are also welcome and encouraged to participate,” the event description reads.
The NHL, a predominantly white league, tried to take small steps to diversify. It’s a good cause and good business.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis press secretary Bryan Griffin thought not so, saying in a statement: “Discrimination of any kind is not welcome in the state of Florida, and we don’t live by the old-fashioned notion that discrimination should be over. be overlooked if applied in a politically popular manner or against a politically unpopular demographic.We will combat all discrimination in our schools and workplaces, and we will combat it in places of meeting or activity that are open to the public.
For DeSantis, diversification is discrimination.
DeSantis’ threat worked, and the NHL backed down, later stating that the event was open to anyone over the age of 18. It will go down in history as one of the greatest acts of cowardice in recent sports history.
An entire sports league was crushed by DeSantis and became another loser in the Woke Wars.

DeSantis wasn’t done yet. Last month, his government blocked the introduction of a new advanced course for high school students that focuses on African-American studies. Because if there’s one thing we don’t want students to do, it’s learning black history, and that’s American history.
“AP African American Studies is not a CRT. This is not the 1619 project,” said historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. TIME in August. “It is a traditional academic approach, tightly controlled, a dynamic field, half a century old in the American academy, and of course much older in colleges and universities. historical black.”
Other things DeSantis bans include sky after sunset, coffee with no cream or sugar, Oprah, February, Darth Vader, iPhones in dark mode, black bears, head of communications “Enterprise and the Harlem Globetrotters… and also just Harlem.” Harlem is no longer allowed in Florida.
DeSantis has decoded two important things. First, for him, Woke Wars are worth fighting because he knows that parts of his base like to see black people, the LGBTQ community, and any group of people who aren’t right-wing white men attacked. DeSantis is cruel and anti-black, but he’s not politically stupid.
Second, DeSantis also knows that sport is a front in Woke Wars that can be consistently and easily exploited. He watched Donald Trump attack Colin Kaepernick and Fox host Laura Ingraham tell LeBron James to shut up and dribble.
DeSantis doesn’t stop at the NHL, Special Olympics, or baseball. As he prepares for a presidential race, NFL and NBA athletes will be heavily targeted for the same reason he banned teaching black history or critical race theory.
Attacking blacks during the Woke Wars is good for right-wing causes.
And in Florida, under DeSantis, things are going well.
