State GOP pushes ‘intellectual diversity’ bill | April 8
Isn’t it ironic that the GOP, pushing this HB 233 thought-control survey bill, supposedly “to push back against cancel culture,” holds substantial majorities in our state’s House and Senate? When indomitable control of our state feels like “cancellation,” your perceptions might be a little suspect. The GOP — canceller of truth, elections, tens of millions of legal votes, Black and brown folks, women’s equality, living wages, our Constitution, ethics and responsible, accountable government. Yes, it’s very ironic.
This bill isn’t to push back against cancel culture. It’s to advance a totalitarian stranglehold in our already corrupt GOP one-party rule in Florida.
