Meanwhile, In One Of America's Leading Laboratories of Autocracy...


Florida keeps right on Floriding.  Via Raw Story:
Florida students required to register political views with the state to promote ‘intellectual diversity’

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation requiring students, faculty and staff at Florida's public universities and colleges to register their political views with the state as a way to encourage "intellectual diversity."

...
"It used to be thought that a university campus was a place where you'd be exposed to a lot of different ideas," DeSantis said, justifying the legislation. "Unfortunately, now the norm is, these are more intellectually repressive environments. You have orthodoxies that are promoted, and other viewpoints are shunned or even suppressed."

DeSantis didn't offer any specific examples of that repression but instead claimed he "knows a lot of parents" who are worried their children will be "indoctrinated" with ideas they don't support, and a pair of state legislators complained that Florida colleges and universities had become "socialism factories."...
This is the Republican Party that Liberals have been warning you about for 40 years.

Nothing says encouraging intellectual diversity than mandating the reporting of political opinions to the state

I have been concerned, very Susan Collins concerned with the poorly mental disordered republicans for some time.

There is a flaw in the Florida law of this reporting.

Can they use school ID's when reporting or do they have to get a Reporting ID from the Republican national committee to do it.

How will they really know if they are a Florida resident reporting as ordered?

It could be one of those aliens, or Liberal disguised as a human being.

I guess small government republicans sees this as small thought law?
