GET ME REWRITE: Ron DeSantis updates Adolf Hitler's playbook with Cancel Culture Festival

Headlines:  Facing History, 4/20/2022;  Prism, 3/20/2023
The Florida state legislature has advanced another bill that would censor gender and queer studies and eliminate diversity, equity, and inclusion programs from public colleges and universities. House Bill 999, which would go into effect July 1, sets its sights on public colleges and universities as a companion legislation to last year’s “Don’t Say Gay” law and “Stop WOKE Act.” It is the latest in censorship and extreme conservative legislation that state Republicans have introduced and Gov. Ron DeSantis has backed, including a union-busting bill and an NRA-backed open carry bill. Some students and faculty have called DeSantis’ targeted legislation fascist and a deliberate attempt to erase LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC experiences.
According to Merriam-Webster, the first-known use of 'cancel culture', as in the practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling (see CANCEL entry 1 sense 1e) as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure , occurred in 2016.
