Obama-Appointed Judge Blocks Governor DeSantis’ “Stop Woke Act” For Colleges


A federal judge on Thursday blocked Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ “Stop Woke Act” for colleges.

U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Florida Mark Walker, a Barack Obama appointee, issued a short lived injunction against Ron DeSantis’ laws.

DeSantis’ anti-woke law prohibited professors from teaching that one group of individuals (whitey) are inherently racist and ought to be consumed with guilt for actions of their ancestors.

Governor DeSantis’ law also prohibits teachers from telling students that, depending on an individual’s race, they’re either privileged or oppressed.

The far-left judge blasted DeSantis and called the laws “positively dystopian.”

“Our professors are critical to a healthy democracy, and the State of Florida’s decision to decide on which viewpoints are worthy of illumination and which must remain within the shadows has implications for us all,” Judge Walker wrote, in line with AP. “If our ‘priests of democracy’ are usually not allowed to make clear difficult ideas, then democracy will die in darkness.

“The Stop W.O.K.E. Act protects the open exchange of ideas by prohibiting teachers or employers who hold agency over others from forcing discriminatory concepts on students as a part of classroom instruction or on employees as a condition of maintaining employment,” said Bryan Griffin, DeSantis’ press secretary.

AP reported:

A federal judge in Florida on Thursday blocked a law pushed by Gov. Ron DeSantis that restricts certain race-based conversations and evaluation in colleges.

Tallahassee U.S. District Judge Mark Walker issued a short lived injunction against the so-called “Stop Woke” act in a ruling that called the laws “positively dystopian.”

The law prohibits teaching or business practices that contend members of 1 ethnic group are inherently racist and will feel guilt for past actions committed by others. It also bars the notion that an individual’s status as privileged or oppressed is necessarily determined by their race or gender, or that discrimination is appropriate to attain diversity.
