INDIVISIBLE DUPAGE, ELMHURST ALLIANCE FOR RACIAL JUSTICE, TEAM ILLINOIS FOR EQUITY & REFORM
— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Retirement of the Majority Rally! (DIERSEN: What do the following have to say about this: a) the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization; b) Republican candidates on November 3, 2020 ballots in DuPage County; and c) the leaders of DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton who have presented themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican?)
https://www.facebook.com/events/307850140389512/
(FROM THE POSTING: The Retirement of the Majority Rally will be on 7/14/2020 live at Facebook and at 9:00AM at the North East corner of County Farm Rd. & Manchester Rd. in Wheaton. Parking will be at 421 N. County Farm Rd. We will be gathering at the corner just across the parking lot from where the county board will meet. Sign up here for up to date information https://actionnetwork.org/events/the-retirement-of-the-majority-rally-catch-22-before-2022/ For a map go to bit.ly/7-14Map. Current Hosts: Indivisible DuPage, Naper Youth for BLM, Elmhurst Alliance for Racial Reform, Lombard Allies for Racial Justice, TIER, Carol Stream Community Activists, and Hinsdale for BLM. These groups will celebrate the end of the one party rule in DuPage County. We are educating the community about 22 state policy initiatives that could be done in the next legislative session that would stop killing BIPOC when they are signed into law. (A more succinct document is coming but they are here bit.ly/Legislative-Options.) Peter DiCianni needs to be held accountable and this protest will ensure that the public will not look away. The reality is that we live in a one party county that has lost the social contract required to govern. This event will celebrate the retirement of their majority rule over the second largest county in the state, which we predict will be by the end of this year. This event will be an authentic BIPOC activist fair directed at young people organized with and by young people. There will be a large community art build, with speakers ranging from youth activists to candidates and educators. We will be directing public commenters to the board, during the entire meeting.

Choose 7/14 https://dupagecounty-ktgfp.formstack.com/forms/publiccomment Here are our demands. 1. There should be a clearly defined method for censuring elected officials in DuPage County. Not having one is unacceptable. 2. Peter DiCianni should be censured for his actions in the many videos and in his written words. If he isn’t it will be clear public accountability of elected officials is gone. 3. Peter DiCianni should be removed from chairing the Health and Human Services Board for his unacceptable behavior. If he isn’t, it will be clear they don’t have acceptable standards. 4. He has violated the ethics Agreement he swore an oath to. He should be removed. A vote needs to be taken, even if it is in the court of public opinion.)

TOWNHALL
— This Is Why the Official BLM Statement Is So Disturbing – Michael Brown (DIERSEN: What do you say to disgusting politicians who painted themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican to get elected, but then promote BLM which is anti-law enforcement, anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-heterosexuals, anti-married people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-Protestant, anti-German Americans, and anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?)
https://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbrown/2020/07/08/this-is-why-the-official-blm-statement-is-so-disturbing-n2572079
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And the BLM organization is dangerous, anti-Christian, and should be avoided. . .BLM was founded by three black women: Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi. The first two identify as queer and the third as “a transnational feminist.” Speaking of Cullors, a website celebrating “lesbians who tech” states that, “When Patrisse was 16-years-old she came out as queer and moved out of her home in the Valley.” The official BLM site describes Garza as a “queer Black woman” who states that “we must view this epidemic through a lens of race, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity.” That’s why a June 21, 2020 article on ABC news declared that, “From the start, the founders of Black Lives Matter have always put LGBTQ voices at the center of the conversation. The movement was founded by three Black women, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi, two of whom identify as queer.” On a certain level, reading through the official BLM statement, being queer is as much of an issue for the movement as being black. Accordingly, there are multiple references to “trans,” as highlighted here: “We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead. “We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.” Even more forthrightly, the statement reads, “We foster a queer-affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).” Thus, the only references to heterosexuality are negative, as in “cisgender privilege” and “heteronormative thinking,” meaning the assumption that heterosexuality is the norm. So, BLM is not just fighting against white privilege but also heterosexual privilege. Make no mistake about it. That’s why the statement also goes out of its way to include people of “actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression.” The leaders have made themselves abundantly clear. But there’s more, and this has often been missed in commentary on BLM beliefs. While there are references to “mothers” and “parents” in their statement, there is not one single reference to fathers. Not one. (Contrast this with the multiple references to queer and trans and gender identity, etc.). As for mention of “men” or the idea of a male-led household, these are only found in totally negative contexts. Specifically, “We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered” (my emphasis). Oh, those terrible, evil men. And this: “We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work ‘double shifts’ so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work” (again, my emphasis). Yes, that oppressive, husband-wife, male-female union, that outdated, outmoded patriarchal dinosaur. It must be dismantled. (And note the assumption that if something is “patriarchal” it is unfair to women. A truly fair relationship would have the husband home with the kids while the wife is out doing “public justice work”). This is the language of radical feminism in unabashed, undisguised form. This too is part of the queer, trans-affirming spirit. As for the third founder, Opal Tometi, she is also described as “a student of liberation theology.” And there is now the widely circulated quote from Cullors that she and Garza “are trained Marxists.” As for the connection between liberation theology and Marxism, especially in this context, Prof. Anthony Bradley, himself black, has pointed out that, “Black Liberation Is Marxist Liberation.” So, without question, the official BLM movement is Marxist-based, queer-affirming, trans-activist, traditional-marriage degrading, radical-feminist promoting and more. In a certain sense, it is fatherless as well. That’s why I said that “the BLM organization is dangerous, anti-Christian, and should be avoided.” Now, let’s also remember that Cullors is on record saying that their goal is to remove Trump from office: “Trump not only needs to not be in office in November, but he should resign now. Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so, what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out.” And this leads me to one last important point. When you connect all the dots, the spirit of the official BLM movement is downright Jezebelic, thus in direct conflict with the Alpha Male Trump.)

One of their most potent weapons in turning politically malleable young minds against their parents — and their country — is white privilege indoctrination. Most parents have no idea of what’s being taught in public schools. In “Bill Ayers, the ‘Critical Pedagogy’ Movement, and ‘Cultural Marxism,” conservative writer Geoffrey Britain wrote this: “In many of our public schools, impressionable young children are no longer being taught to be proud of being Americans. Their school teachers, who traditionally embody socially approved values, are teaching them to be ashamed of being Americans. Spreading out from the schools that teach our teachers, this ideology is being inculcated into our nation’s K-12 schools, and is anti-American in the most profound meaning of the term. It is a movement that is teaching future generations that capitalism and traditional American values are intrinsically evil. Critical pedagogy and its advocates, in their vehement antipathy towards capitalism, private property and traditional American values amount to a fifth subversive column, no less dangerous to freedom than communism. Its advocates are seeking to radically transform our society by covertly indoctrinating the young through an essentially clandestine and subversive transformation of our culture.” The kind of teachers to whom Britain referred have two things in common: (1) they all have turned to the side of the hammer and sickle, and (2) they all are Democrats. . .In public schools across America, activist Democrat teachers are pushing a failed and oppressive ideology on captive young minds, often with the tacit approval of their superiors. You can bet everything you own that activist Democrats in academia are also infecting their students with white privilege guilt. As a major part of the Democratic Party’s election strategy, white privilege ideology is taught to thousands of teachers and administrators at annual white privilege conferences. . .One of the Third Reich’s most devastating propaganda techniques is known as the “Big Lie”: If you’re going to lie, make it a Big Lie, keep repeating it, and people will believe it. That’s what Democrats do with white privilege ideology — relentlessly repeat it until people believe it. Writing in his weekly column “Our Broken Moral Compasses,” black American professor Dr. Walter Williams exposed white privilege for the Big Lie it is: “Then there’s white privilege. Colleges have courses and seminars on “whiteness.” One college even has a course titled “Abolition of Whiteness.” According to academic intellectuals, whites enjoy advantages that nonwhites do not. They earn higher incomes and reside in better housing, and their children go to better schools and achieve more. Based on those socio-economic statistics, Japanese-Americans have more white privilege than white people.” . . . Despite horrible injustices of the past, no country in history has done more than this country to correct wrongs once committed against an oppressed minority of its own citizens. Democrats know that, but acknowledging it would undercut their most poisonous Big Lie: that even after all these years, America is still a racist hellhole, as it most definitely was when Knight Riders in white robes and white hoods served as the violent enforcement arm of Democrat governors, mayors, and police chiefs.)
