ORLANDO, FLORIDA — For the third time this month, a Left-wing judge has struck down a new Florida policy aimed at protecting children.
On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Presnell blocked the Protection of Children Act, which prohibits exposing minors to “adult live performances.”
Presnell – a Clinton appointee – claimed that the law was “specifically designed to suppress the speech of drag queen performers.” However, nothing in the bill restricts adults from attending the prurient shows.
He also argued that the loss of business for plaintiff Hamburger Mary’s “outweighs any purported evils” that children would suffer from being exposed to sexualized performances in public.
The governor’s office scoffed at the ruling, but remains optimistic about the future of the new legal protections.
“Of course it’s constitutional to prevent the sexualization of children by limiting access to adult live performances,” press secretary Jeremy Redfern said in a statement. “We believe the judge’s opinion is dead wrong and look forward to prevailing on appeal.”
CLINTON LEGACY LIVES ON IN FLORIDA
Presnell’s ruling comes on the heels of two questionable opinions from U.S. District Court Judge Robert Hinkle, who was also appointed by President Clinton.
On June 6, Hinkle issued a preliminary injunction on a new Florida law that prohibits doctors from butchering teenagers who are confused about their gender.
Hinkle called the law “anti-transgender bigotry” and ironically claimed that the “adolescent children will suffer irreparable harm” if they are denied drugs that disrupt the body’s hormone production.
On Thursday, Hinkle stretched his interpretation of the Constitution even further by suggesting a Florida rule that shields taxpayers from funding sex change operations violates the Fourteenth Amendment.
“The elephant in the room should be noted at the outset. Gender identity is real,” Hinkle opined in his ruling, arguing that men and women cannot “choose” how they identify.
