Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts The Kibosh To The NHL’s Planned Job Fair In Florida For ‘female, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, and/or a person with a disability’ That Is Anyone But A White Herterosexual Nondisabled Male AKA ‘a politically unpopular demographic’


“Discrimination of any sort is not welcome in the state of Florida, and we do not abide by the woke notion that discrimination should be overlooked if applied in a politically popular manner or against a politically unpopular demographic,” the governor’s press secretary, Bryan Griffin, said in a statement this week.

NHL deletes ‘discriminatory’ job fair post after DeSantis steps in: ‘Not welcome in the state of Florida’

Thanks to intervention from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the National Hockey League (NHL) has backtracked away from plans to hold a job fair for only non-white applicants.

The “Pathway to Hockey Summit,” as it’s called, is scheduled to occur at the 2023 NHL All-Star Weekend celebration in Fort Lauderdale on Feb. 2nd and is designed to help “diverse job seekers who are pursuing careers in hockey.”

The controversial job fair was originally announced in a since-deleted LinkedIn post.

“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 post read, according to Fox News.

But then the governor heard about the event, and all hell broke loose.
