“We are being told of the evils of “cancel culture,” a new scourge that enforces purity, banishes dissent and squelches sober and reasoned debate. But cancel culture is not new. A brief accounting of the illustrious and venerable ranks of blocked and dragged Americans encompasses Sarah Good, Elijah Lovejoy, Ida B. Wells, Dalton Trumbo, Paul Robeson and the Dixie Chicks. What was the Compromise of 1877, which ended Reconstruction, but the cancellation of the black South? What were the detention camps during World War II but the racist muting of Japanese-Americans and their basic rights? Thus any sober assessment of this history must conclude that the present objections to cancel culture are not so much concerned with the weapon, as the kind of people who now seek to wield it.”
–From Ta-Nehisi Coates’s “The Cancellation of Colin Kaepernick,” The New York Times, Nov. 22, 2019.

CABINET AIDES MEET: Aides to Gov. Ron DeSantis, Attorney General Ashley Moody, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried and state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis will meet to discuss issues in advance of a Dec. 3 Cabinet meeting. The Dec. 3 meeting could include consideration of a replacement for former Office of Financial Regulation Commissioner Ronald Rubin, who was fired this summer after allegations of sexual harassment. Rubin denied the allegations. (Monday, 9 a.m., Cabinet meeting room, the Capitol.)
DEMOCRATS CRITICIZE TRUMP: Florida Democratic Congresswomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Lois Frankel and Donna Shalala will hold a media conference call to criticize President Donald Trump’s policies in advance of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Broward County. (Monday, 10:30 a.m. Reporters may contact the Florida Democratic Party for registration information.)
JUDICIAL NOMINATING PANEL HOLDS CALL: The Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission will hold a conference call and start the process of replacing former Supreme Court justices Robert Luck and Barbara Lagoa. The call comes after the U.S. Senate confirmed Luck and Lagoa to seats on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Both jurists were named by Gov Ron DeSantis to the Florida Supreme Court in January before getting tapped by President Donald Trump for the federal appeals court. An agenda for the conference call of the Judicial Nominating Commission includes discussion of “procedures and timing for nominating candidates for appointment to Florida Supreme Court vacancies.” The commission ultimately will conduct interviews of applicants before recommending three to six finalists for each opening to DeSantis, Daniel Nordby, the commission’s chairman, told The News Service of Florida. DeSantis recently said he expects to fill the Supreme Court vacancies early next year. (Monday, 11:30 a.m. Call-in number: 1-877-380-5440. Code: 8502411725.)
JUDGE HOLDS HEARING IN BALLOT ORDER LAWSUIT: Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker will hold a telephone hearing in a lawsuit challenging a state law requiring candidates who are in the same party as the governor to appear first on the ballot. Walker recently ruled that the law is unconstitutional, but the state appealed his decision. The hearing will focus on the state’s request to put the ruling on hold during the appeal. (Monday, 3 p.m. Call-in number: 1-888-684-8852. Access code: 3853136. Security code: 4565.)
