Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed the National Hockey League (NHL) in a statement Friday afternoon after the league posted what the state deemed to be a “discriminatory” job posting.
“The NHL is proud to announce its first-ever Pathway to Hockey Summit launching during our 2023 All Star festivities in South Florida!” the NHL said in the job posting on LinkedIn. “The Pathway to Hockey Summit is a career event for diverse job seekers who are pursuing careers in hockey. The day will be filled with guest speakers and panelists, networking opportunities, and more!”
The event takes place on February 2 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and the deadline to register for it is today.
“If you are looking for your opportunity to meet with recruiters from the NHL League Office and at least 10 of our NHL teams, we welcome you to register,” the posting said. “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.”
Bryan Griffin, a spokesman for the governor, responded to the news in a statement, saying that this type of discriminatory job posting will not be tolerated in the state of Florida and that the league needs to “immediately remove and denounce the discriminatory prohibitions it has imposed.”
“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,” DeSantis’ office said in a statement. “We are fighting all discrimination in our schools and our workplaces, and we will fight it in publicly accessible places of meeting or activity.”
“We call upon the National Hockey League to immediately remove and denounce the discriminatory prohibitions it has imposed on attendance to the 2023 ‘Pathway to Hockey’ summit,” the statement continued.
More blatant anti white male BS.
Because Negroes and trannies are really into hockey...
DeSantis Admin Demands NHL Remove ‘Discriminatory Prohibitions’ from Minority-Only Hockey Summit
Undoubtedly, this is the work of Kim Davis, the NHL's executive vice president of social impact, growth initiatives and legislative affairs.
Every major corporation in America has been tasked with hiring a "Corporate Diversity Officer" --typically a black woman, to "have a boardroom that looks like America." Her job is to bring diversity to the NHL.
Whenever we see companies diving into woke politics and embracing decisions that hurt their bottom line and drive away customers, it is almost always these diversity officers who are behind it, knowing nothing about how to actually run a business and hired solely to help a company's ESG score.
Gary Bettman, her boss, is the one behind the bigotry and racism.
Right here is when a group of White guys oughta go down there and dare them to deny access / participation. .
Then get lawyers and sue their ass into oblivion........two can play at that game.
It doesn’t mention the venue. We need to find that info and call them to have them cancel the event, like the woke mob does. Discrimination is disgusting and no event center should tolerate that.
That, and white people spending $0 for the remainder of the season would be better.
Dang. So no white males.
Eff the NHL.
Every institution in this country is entirely corrupt. Not one isn’t.
I sure hope DeSantis stays in FL and doesn’t seek the presidency. He’s setting such a great example that he needs stay put and continue to bring sanity to FL government and we need other governors across the nation to emulate what he’s doing.
Can’t stand listening to that woke high-pitched hockey announcer grating like claws against a chalk board.
It would be one thing if the announcer actually knew something about hockey. The NHL (like all other professional sports in America) have drunk the poisonous, degenerate homosexual Kool-Aid.
Good thing the woke NHL makes certain there is racial diversity on all hockey teams.
Oh, wait. Look at this:
“According to an article by USA Today, 97% of the NHL is white, while the other 3% is made of different ethnicities. Of the 3% of the remaining ethnicities, twenty-six are black. Twenty of the twenty-six black hockey players are from Canada while six are American.”
Their list of who can attend literally translates to Straight Caucasian Guys Can Not Attend.

Line said to Mariska Hargitay as Lt.Olivia Benson on Law & Order SVU:
“Don’t tell me. You had tears well up in your eyes when they read the Inaugural Oath to Barack Obama.”
I look forward to President DeSantis waging war against Woke Culture across the country.
I demand reparations for all whites who have been adversely affected by Affirmative Action.
