DAILY HERALD
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, discrimination in past is blamed for the problems that minorities have today. Did your parents, your grandparents, your great grandparents, or any of the rest of your ancestors discriminate against minorities? Mine did not. But nevertheless, my Democrat superiors in federal government made me pay the price of Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion. None of my ancestors attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My great grandparents were farmers in Grant Park and Crete. 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. What if AA, Diversity, and Inclusion were only for those whose parents did not have a college degree?

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In recent days, more and more large companies are boycotting Facebook as part of a growing protest that claims the social media platform hasn’t done enough to prevent the spread of hate speech. . .A civil rights coalition that includes the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the NAACP launched the #StopHateforProfit campaign last week, calling on major corporations to put a pause on advertising on Facebook. Their reasoning is the social media giant’s “repeated failure to meaningfully address the vast proliferation of hate on its platforms.”)

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.)

To justify forcing me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut to transfer, my Democrat GAO superiors dismissed/belittled the almost 9 years of experience that I had gained working for IRS, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently, $85,084-$96,431/year. Further, they dismissed/belittled the fact that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. 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. They would have promoted me to GS-14, if not to GS-15, if not to Senior Executive Service if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/prestoncooper2/2020/06/29/new-executive-order-fights-credential-inflation-in-the-federal-civil-service/
(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.)

I had a lot of diversity training while I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980 and for the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997.

That training showed me how Democrats want their constituent groups – minorities, women, younger people, non-German Americans, non-Protestants, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, and those who have less money than others – to adversely view Republicans.)

What if BLMers, LGBTQ+ers, and/or other Trump-haters officially took over your neighborhood, your precinct, your municipal district, your downtown, your municipality, your township, your county, or Illinois, of have they already? From what I see, sooner or later, if not already, BLM and LGBTQ+ will demand that your city council do the following: get rid of the municipality’s residents, organizations, and companies a) that do not promote BLM, LGBTQ+ activity, dependency on government, dependency on charity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and b) that are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. How will your city council respond? How soon, if not already, will the BLMers and LGBTQ+ers in your municipality invite Shaun King to lead protests in your municipality? What if the BLMers and LGBTQ+ers in Wheaton succeed in doing that? How soon, if not already, will the leaders of the world, America, Illinois, your county, your township, your municipality, and your municipal district officially ban the promotion of traditional marriage and the traditional family, that is, how soon will the aforesaid leaders officially force you to promote LGBTQ+ activity? There are no protections for those like me who do not promote BLM and LGBTQ+ activity. How soon, if not already, will employers officially get rid of their employees who do not promote BLM and LGBTQ+ activity? How soon, if not already, will organizations officially get rid of their members who do not promote LGBTQ+ activity?

https://illinoisfamily.org/faith/fomenting-racism-in-the-21st-century/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The ideology of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other “social justice” organizations teaches that all whites are racist oppressors, thereby justifying verbal attacks on people who are deemed inveterate racists and justifying riots to destroy everything that has emerged from an allegedly irremediable racist system. In promoting an explicitly racist ideology, BLM and other “social justice” organizations institutionalize racism, and we are suffering the fruits of that poisonous ideology. In the hell-bent quest by America-hating revolutionaries to destroy America by destroying its institutions and history, 60 monuments have been removed, ordered removed, defaced, or torn down.)

AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE
— So It Turns Out You’re A Racist Left-wing wokeness has become the totalitarianism it purports to hate, where you’re guilty unless you can ‘prove’ otherwise. – PETER VAN BUREN (DIERSEN: What do you say to Whites who promote hatred against other Whites to curry favor with those who hate Whites? What do you say to men who promote hatred against other men to curry favor with those who hate men? What do you say to older people who promote hatred against other older people to curry favor with those who hate older people?

https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/so-it-turns-out-youre-a-racist/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Am I a racist? Are you? People tell me I sort of have to be a racist, it’s not really my choice. Today, if you’re old, white, from the Midwest, a bit conservative, then you’re racist. Maybe you don’t say racist things specifically, and maybe you never did anything to disadvantage a black person yourself, but by original sin, you’re part of “systematic racism.“ Now maybe your immigrant parents arrived in the U.S. 75 years after slavery, or you as a white racist have trouble finding a privileged job that pays a living wage. No matter, you’re still privileged thanks to a system going back 400 years whether you like it or not. You can’t change what you are and people hate you for it. That’s the systemic part, defined as “not something that a few people choose to practice. Instead it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist.” I’d like to say that was from the news, but in recent days I heard most of that from a close relative, and the rest from a friend of many years, neither of whom want to interact with me anymore. I’ve been sending one checks since her birthdays were in the single digits. I grew up alongside the other. They have both taken themselves out of my life because the internet told them I am a racist. Crowd-sourced (what old timers call a mob) leftist fundamentalism has given us a country where everyone can be called a Nazi, er, racist, and dismissed. Once the red line was only actual Nazis. So no “Thank you, Elie Wiesel for that moving account. Now in rebuttal, Hitler’s deputy, Martin Bormann…” You had to be an actual Nazi to hold an opinion outside the boundaries of legitimacy. Not any more. Racism scholar Ibram Kendi says one is now either racist or anti-racist, that there is no room for such thing as a “non-racist.” The New York Times said white allies should “Text your relatives and loved ones telling them you will not be visiting them or answering phone calls until they take significant action in supporting black lives.” Another article described my own situation, claiming “BLM protesters are breaking up with their racist, Facebook-addled relatives.” A Twitter thread about one such family dissolution had over 800,000 likes. HuffPo ran an article by a biracial woman eviscerating her white mother for being too white.)

Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-Protestant, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/patriciagbarnes/2020/06/23/is-this-the-end-of-retirement/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It is time to ask whether retirement remains a viable option for many (if not most) older workers due to back-to-back economic disasters and epidemic age discrimination. Older workers were slammed in 2007 when Wall Street collapsed and the nation was plunged into the worst economic recession in a hundred years. Today older workers face what a potentially worse situation due to mass layoffs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some businesses will close and jobs will be lost but, if the past is any indicator, others will use the opportunity afforded by economic chaos to simply get rid of older workers. And what will stop them? The major problem facing older workers today is age discrimination in hiring and that is, to a shocking degree, perfectly legal under federal law. Re-employment Rate When older workers lose jobs, they disproportionately are plunged into long-term unemployment and their chances of finding equivalent new work are slim.)

— Wheaton Establishes Pride Week Starting June 22 The proclamation was signed by Wheaton Mayor Philip Suess June 15. – Lisa Marie Farver (DIERSEN: According to Wheaton, “The proclamation aims to make all residents and visitors in our community feel valued, safe, empowered and supported by peers, educators, community leaders and other citizens.” I should write a book about those in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who do not accept me, who do not value me, who do not empower me, and/or who do not support me because I do not promote LGBTQ+ activity.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The city of Wheaton recently issued a proclamation establishing a Pride Week to celebrate its LGBTQ community. Mayor Philip Suess signed the proclamation Monday, making June 22 through June 28 officially Pride Week. The proclamation states, in part “[T}he City of Wheaton is dedicated to the acceptance of all its residents, regardless of age, beliefs, color, disability, ethnicity, identity, race, religion, sex and sexual orientation.” It goes on to declare Pride Week “to promote the principles of equality and liberty for all our residents.” As part of Pride Week, the Downtown Wheaton Association will be painting windows and creating an art map to spotlight the pride-themed displays. They also encouraged residents and business owners to share their photos on the Downtown Wheaton Association Facebook page.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200616/feder-winds-amy-jacobson-wins-battle-to-cover-pritzker-news-conferences
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In what supporters are hailing as a victory for press freedom, Amy Jacobson has won her battle to attend Governor J.B. Pritzker’s media briefings as a journalist, Robert Feder writes. Jacobson, who co-hosts mornings on Salem Media news/talk WIND 560-AM with Dan Proft, sued Pritzker and his press secretary, Jordan Abudayyeh, earlier this month for barring Jacobson from daily news conferences. Pritzker said Jacobson had forfeited her status as a reporter by “taking an extreme position” when she spoke at a Reopen Illinois rally May 16 protesting the governor’s stay-at-home order during the pandemic. Backed by Liberty Justice Center, a Chicago-based conservative public-interest litigation center, Jacobson and Salem claimed Pritzker’s ban violated Jacobson’s First Amendment rights to freedom of the press and free speech as well as her rights to equal protection and due process. On Monday Pritzker and Abudayyeh rescinded the ban and invited Jacobson “to participate in the Governor’s press access on the same basis as other journalists.” The walk-back came in the form of a letter from the office of Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul. “Ms. Jacobson may participate fully in the Governor’s press access, including but not limited to press briefings and conferences, to the same extent that any other media is allowed to participate,” read the letter, which was signed by Assistant Attorney General Michael Dierkes.)

My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

That directly resulted in a) Firestone Stores firing me and b) my accepting a job offer from IRS. Democrats and RINOs use Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion to get rid of Republicans, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
