Meatball’s War on Wokeism Just Taken a Hit in Court

For the third time this month, a new Florida law restricting drag performances, backed by Governor Ron DeSantis, has been thrown out of court. Other than that, Bratty McBratFace isn’t very good at running his state. Ronald operates on an anti-revival platform, but his attacks on the LGBTQ community, drag queens, and Disney don’t work.

NBC News reports:

In all three cases, questions backed by DeSantis, a Republican presidential candidate, were dismissed on the grounds that the laws appear to infringe on the people’s constitutional rights.

In Friday’s ruling, U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell of the Central District of Florida granted an injunction preventing the state from enforcing a law prohibiting minors from attending “lewd performances”, calling it too broad.

The judge declined to reject the law entirely, meaning the underlying lawsuit challenging it will continue.

The governor’s office said the judge was “boldly wrong” and predicted the state would win the appeal.

“Of course, it is constitutional to prevent the sexualization of children by limiting access to adult entertainment,” DeSantis spokesman Jeremy Redfern said in an email.

Hamburger Mary’s, a drag show-themed restaurant, launched the lawsuit in response to the law DeSantis signed into law in May. The judge sided with Hamburger Mary’s after arguing that the law was drafted so broadly that it had a “chilling effect” on First Amendment free speech rights.

A GoFundMe was set up for the restaurant, and it raised $39,878 to pay legal fees.
