AMERICAN THINKER
— What Causes White Guilt – John Eidson (DIERSEN: Are you White? If so, how has that impacted you? My Democrat, Libertarian, Green, and RINO critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that because of discrimination against minorities and because of discrimination against females, if I had been a minority or a female, a) I never would have been able to earn a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48; job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48; and a job-related professional license when I was 32 and b) the Post Office would not have hired me when I was 16, Firestone would not have hired me when I was 21, Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job and IRS would not have hired me when I was 22, IRS would not have promoted me when I was 23, 24, and 25, GAO would not have hired me when I was 31, GAO would not have promoted me when I was 38, etc.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/07/what_causes_white_guilt.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The U.S. education system has been thoroughly infiltrated by Marxist faculty and administrators hell-bent on doing their part to help dismantle America’s two-party constitutional democracy in favor of single-party socialist rule. 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.)

— Safe DuPage celebrating law enforcement on July 4 – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200703/safe-dupage-celebrating-law-enforcement-on-july-4
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville’s fireworks are being shot off from the south side of town and the debut of The Naperville Salute has been postponed until 2021, but there is one Fourth of July event planned to bring patriotism to the downtown Saturday. Safe DuPage, an organization formed by Naperville City Council member Kevin Coyne, is hosting “Celebrating Naperville’s Heroes: 4th of July” at 9:30 a.m. at the base of the Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower at Rotary Hill, 455 Aurora Ave. Coyne said the event will include music and speakers in a socially distanced format with all attendees asked to wear masks and follow U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Attendees also are asked to wear red, white and blue and to bring an American flag to wave. The purpose of the gathering, Coyne said, is to celebrate American independence and local safety. Speakers are set to include veterans, community leaders and elected officials. “We thought it’d be nice for an assortment of reasons to kick off the Fourth of July with a nice, patriotic-themed event that recognizes our public safety officers in Naperville who have done such a great job for so long,” Coyne said. The event is not a pro-police rally, like the one June 27 in Elmhurst, at which DuPage County Board member Pete DiCianni was seen on video confronting counterprotesters. But in the wake of protests about the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Coyne said, it’s important to show local law enforcement professionals they are appreciated. “You can’t have a free society that’s safe without good, strong law enforcement,” he said. “I think our police officers in general and our community needs to know that we’re not turning our back on our police, and police need to be respected.” The Fourth of July event is one of several Safe DuPage has hosted since forming early this year to promote public safety. Other town hall-style events, in person or online, have covered topics including crime, substance abuse, youth issues and court procedures. The events have featured elected officials and nonprofit leaders as speakers. For details about the event, visit https://safedupage.org/events/ .)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LaFayette fireworks display comes with its own bit of political intrigue: the event is being organized by Dave Knapp, the Republican chairman of the Onondaga County Legislature. LaFayette’s town supervisor, who helped bring the event together, is Republican Danny Fitzpatrick, son of longtime District Attorney William Fitzpatrick. And McMahon, also a Republican and the former county legislature chairman, said Friday that his administration played a role in changing the scope of festival based on pandemic concerns. But McMahon said Friday that, at no point, did he threaten to shut the event down.)

— Liberals Are Creating A Nation Of Spoiled Brats – Derek Hunter (DIERSEN: What did you do when you were young? I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; and delivered mail 1966-1969. I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. I bought a 1958 Chevy BelAir in 1964, a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966, a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967, and a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/derekhunter/2020/07/02/liberals-are-creating-a-nation-of-spoiled-brats-n2571733
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It starts, “It’s not the police who need to be retrained, it’s the public. We have grown into a mouthy, cell phone-wielding, vulgar, uncivil society with no personal responsibility and the attitude of ‘it’s the other person’s fault,’ ‘you owe me.’ A society where children grow up with no boundaries or knowledge or concern for civil society and personal responsibility.” We can argue whether or not police need more training – I don’t personally view it as a bad idea – but the rest is spot on. It’s the America liberals have created: a bunch of self-entitled brats used to getting whatever they want and unable to deal with not being coddled. We’ve seen it for a while now, mostly on college campuses but occasionally boiling over off campus into things like “Occupy Wall Street.” They’re the unemployed and otherwise unemployable who are angry about the results of the bad choices they made – majoring in bisexual polar bear studies or some other worthless field of study that only qualifies you to teach that worthless skill to other suckers dumb enough to major in it, for example – and unqualified to do anything. Their rooms back home are likely covered with participation ribbons, driveways likely filled by the family Prius coated with “I’m the proud parent of a spectacular student” bumper stickers, and fridges overrun with tofu. In other words, these people were created. Bad parenting has consequences.)

My grandparents on my father’s side operated a hardware store in Crete. My grandparents on my mother’s side operated a farm in Grant Park. My father worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. After my father died, my mother worked in a dental office in Crete.

Their reasoning is the social media giant’s “repeated failure to meaningfully address the vast proliferation of hate on its platforms.”)

Since 1997, when I was 49 years old, my critics/opponents have been furious that as federal retiree, I have received COLAs.

BLACK LIVES MATTER
— What We Believe
https://blacklivesmatter.com/what-we-believe/
(FROM THE POSTING: We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others. We see ourselves as part of the global Black family, and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black people who exist in different parts of the world. We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location. 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. We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered. We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts. 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. We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable. 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).)

— Unsanctioned Pride parade draws thousands in Chicago – Madison Dibble
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/unsanctioned-pride-parade-draws-thousands-in-chicago
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Thousands of LGBT activists are gathering at an unsanctioned Pride parade in Chicago. The city’s parade was canceled because of fears of the spread of the coronavirus, but activists gathered on Sunday anyway at the “Reclaim Pride March,” which partnered the causes of Pride and the Black Lives Matter movement. Alexis Abarca, an activist who attended the march, told ABC 7 that the two movements are both advocating for an end to police brutality and racial injustice. “Every year we continue to say, yeah let’s go out to Pride, let’s go out to celebrate, but all the time we forget to highlight the fact that Black trans women are still out there and we still need justice and still need a lot of resources,” Abarca said. Aerial footage from the event showed thousands of attendees at the march. Many on Twitter expressed concern about the potential for the coronavirus to spread between marchers in Chicago, though many of the activists appeared to be wearing masks. Illinois has not fully reopened yet. Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker said the state may wait until a vaccine is present to allow gatherings of more than 50 people in places such as churches and theaters.)

FREEDOM’S JOURNAL
— WHITE WOKENESS – Charles Love (DIERSEN: Many, if not most, if not virtually all of my past and present critics/opponents in Wheaton, Milton Township, and DuPage County have had little or no contact with Blacks. While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years (for the Post Office in Park Forest 1966-1969, for IRS in Harvey, Joliet, and Chicago 1971-1980, and for GAO in Chicago 1980-1997), many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Black. Since 1976, every American president has designated February as Black History Month and endorsed a specific theme. I participated in Black History Month activities at IRS 1976-1979 and at GAO 1980-1997. I worked for the S.S. Kresges in downtown Chicago Heights 1964-1966 and for the Firestone Store in Gary, Indiana in 1970 and in downtown Chicago Heights 1970-1972. I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972 and I lived in it full-time 1972-1974, weekends 1974-1976, and then I rented it out 1976-1984. My bother continues to live in Crete.)
https://freedomsjournalinstitute.org/latest-news/opinion/white-wokeness/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most whites don’t have many black friends who can give them firsthand accounts of what their experiences are with racism. While most blacks do experience some discrimination or racial prejudice, it is rarely violent, and it does not hold them back in a significant sense. Is racism a “systemic” or “institutional” force? For more than half a century, the United States has had no laws preventing black people from doing anything that white people can do, and government agencies and courts closely monitor socioeconomic life for any vestiges of discrimination in housing, employment, or public accommodations. The media give a distorted view of black life.)

My RINO superiors in the Republican Party continue to refuse to forgive me for a) my not glorifying and praising them, b) my not pandering to them, c) my not serving as one of their personal operatives or personal dupes, d) my not giving them money, e) my sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, and f) my refusing to dump the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. The defendants in the lawsuits that I have filed continue to do everything that they can to destroy me.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/terrypaulson/2020/06/29/the-gift-of-forgivenessamerica-as-a-work-in-progress-n2571406
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America, as successful as it has been in creating a country where people risk their fortunes and their lives trying to enter, has remained a work in progress. Its past leaders, often imperfect by today’s standards, stretched the fabric of our rich mosaic in every age to help live up to the values we first just dreamed of embracing. We aren’t what we will be, but we can be proud of how far we have come in our journey. Can we ever get beyond the racial sins of our past and present? I take heart in the Biblical story in Genesis about Joseph, the son of Jacob. Like many who were forced into slavery in America’s early history, Joseph was sold into slavery by his jealous older brothers. In spite of a tragic series of events, Joseph never lost his strong belief in the God of Jacob.)

My first job after I graduated from NIU in 1970 when I was 21 years old with a bachelor’s degree in management was the “Retail Sales Manager” for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights. I wanted a career in the automotive industry, but the job was not a good fit because a) it required me to use little of what I had learned in college, b) advancement opportunities looked bad, and c) the store manager disapproved of my demographics: draft avoider, former federal employee (Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969), college graduate, conservative, Republican, German American, Protestant, and someone whose ancestors had been in America longer than his ancestors. He would not have hired me. The Firestone Store district office hired me and granted my request to work in its Chicago Heights store. He refused to let me start until I passed a “probationary period” working for the Firestone Store in Gary, Indiana. In early 1971, he rudely, if not violently, fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice after I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.)

They would not have forced me to take a pay cut to transfer if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. Further, they did not assign me to audits of IRS until 1986, promote me to GS-13 until 1986, and they never promoted me to GS-14 even though I had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, I had passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, I had became a licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, Forensic Accountant in 1997, and I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to fill job vacancies based on merit, rather than require a minimum level of education for candidates seeking open positions. The order rightly recognizes that a job candidate with several years of relevant experience may be just as qualified, if not more so, than one who has collected a stack of advanced degrees. “Employers adopting skills- and competency-based hiring recognize that an overreliance on college degrees excludes capable candidates and undermines labor-market efficiencies,” the order reads. “Currently, for most Federal jobs, traditional education — high school, college, or graduate-level — rather than experiential learning is either an absolute requirement or the only path to consideration for candidates without many years of experience.” The order still allows federal agencies to prescribe minimum educational requirements for job candidates if the degree is legally required by the state or local government where the federal employee will be working. Additionally, they may consider a candidate’s education if the degree “directly reflects the competencies necessary” to do the job. In other cases, agencies must fill job openings based on the “specific skills and competencies” that the positions require. An agency seeking a computer programmer will not be allowed to turn away a candidate with several years of relevant programming experience simply because he hasn’t had the time or money to go back to school for a master’s degree. Instead, federal agencies will develop assessment practices to determine a candidate’s skills and qualifications for the job. These may take the form of formal skills tests or some other means of assessment, but cannot rely only on job candidates’ self-evaluations of their skills. Changes to job classification and qualification standards will take effect within 180 days.)

FED SMITH
— Federal Employees Have it Good – Dallen Haws (DIERSEN: Yes, but if you are a federal employee who is Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran, the Democrats who run the federal government will get rid of you if you do not make GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few federal employee make the aforesaid promotion deadlines. Further, ever-increasingly, federal employees, former federal employees, and federal retirees are viciously demonized, viciously denigrated, and viciously condemned.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Working for the government has its ups and downs, as I am sure those reading this already know, but sometimes I wonder if most feds know how good they have it. Now I know that it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows but no job is. All I am saying is that the government offers things that you can’t really find anywhere else such as benefits that many private sector folks only dream about. Let’s dig into a few. Those that have been with a number of employers know well that the government’s benefits are incredibly hard to beat. Here are some of the big ones.)

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/facebook-just-lost-one-of-the-biggest-advertisers-in-the-world-for-the-rest-of-2020/ar-BB160DXf
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facebook has been the subject of criticism for its decision not to take action on statements from President Donald Trump that warned that looters during protests would be shot. While the platform has in recent years taken numerous steps to crack down on hate speech, civil rights groups remain critical of the social platform’s role in the rise of extremism along with the latitude it gives to the president. Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone said the company invests billions of dollars a year to keep its platform safe. “We’ve opened ourselves up to a civil rights audit, and we have banned 250 white supremacist organizations from Facebook and Instagram,” Stone said in an email. Stone also stressed a recent European Union report that said Facebook identified 90 percent of hate speech before it was reported and acts faster that Twitter or YouTube. The Facebook protest was mobilized by the NAACP, the Anti-Defamation League and other groups such as Color of Change and Sleeping Giants, a group that targets advertisers that support certain right-wing content, among others.)
