I should write a book about my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government who stressed to my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government that I was a) 100% German national origin and b) baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran.

WASHINGTON POST
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater says “The GOP had an uneasy relationship with the far right. Until Trump. Republicans once kept the fringe at arms’ length. Trump made it mainstream.” I should write a book about RINOs who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned me as being a far-right fringe extremist and even worse things. I would focus on many present and past RINO leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, etc. I would focus on those who reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. I would focus on those who promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and even worse things. RINOs hate conservatives, that is, they hate the base of the Republican Party. RINOs work closely with Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, moderates, and liberals to destroy the Republican Party.)

https://alaskalandmine.com/landmines/white-alaska-young-democrats-quit-group-to-make-room-for-marginalized-members/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a surprising move, all white and white-passing members of the Alaska Young Democrats (AYD) resigned from the group en-masse last week. As one white former member of the AYD told the Landmine, “We’ve always supported Democratic causes and candidates, but we felt that we had a moral duty to resign. White people are responsible for almost everything wrong with the world, and we recognize that as white people we will always be racists–no matter what we do! By staying in AYD, we’d merely be reinforcing the myth of the “White Savior” and continuing to exploit our privilege to steal unearned space from BIPOC. We finally acknowledged that it’s our duty to leave the Alaska Young Democrats.” Alaska Young Democrats President Genevieve Mina was disappointed that the group was losing the majority of its members but was appreciative of her former white members. “We really hate to lose so many people but they realized that allowing BIPOC to have more of a voice was the right thing to do. Recognizing and acknowledging their white privilege is an important part of their journey.” Multiple sources confirmed that several dozen white former Alaska Young Democrats attempted to join the Alaska Young Republicans (AYR), but the transition was reportedly problematic. As former AYR President Ryan McKee told the Landmine, “Yeah, at first we were excited when all of these Democrats said they wanted to join us. But it was weird, they kept telling us they were racists. We’re really not about that, you know? I was born in El Salvador. The Alaska Young Republicans don’t tolerate racism. We’re really just about fiscal responsibility and getting moderately lit on the weekends.” Alaska Young Republicans President Sarah Hetemi attempted to reason with the former Democrats, with little apparent success: “We’d ask these former Democrats, like, ‘what are you guys thinking or doing that’s racist?’ They just told us they didn’t know, and that was proof they had fully internalized their racism. A couple of them started hyperventilating so we stopped pushing it. We told them they could stuff some campaign mailers into envelopes for Republican candidates, but when someone said the phrase ‘white envelopes,’ three of the former Young Democrats had full-blown panic attacks. It was just so sad. We almost called an ambulance.” Other Young Republicans were less impressed. As one African-American member of the Alaska Young Republicans told the Landmine, “I just tried to ask these people their names, but all they would say was ‘we’re here to listen.’ I asked them: ‘what are your names? Where are you from? Why do you want to join us?’ But it was always the same answer. ‘We’re just here to listen.’ Over and over again. It was pretty creepy, to be honest. I still don’t know who they were.” The former Alaska Young Democrats seemed confused and exhausted by the exchange, and decided to reconvene at a local cafe. However, after realizing that the cafe was owned by a Korean-American family, and not Black-owned as previously believed, the Democrats began packing up to leave. Speaking anonymously, one member told the Landmine, “This whole thing has been so bewildering. There were more racial and ethnic minorities in the Young Republicans than in the Young Democrats. Were they just suffering from internalized racism? Were they transracial? Was our white existence threatening these BIPOC? Even after reading ‘White Fragility’ and ‘Between the World and Me,’ we just don’t know what to do. It’s almost like we can’t tell what racism is anymore.”)

THE HILL
— Journalism or partisanship? The media’s mistakes of 2016 continue in 2020 – SHARYL ATTKISSON (DIERSEN: What do you say to journalists who claim to be nonpartisan, but who serve as propagandists for the Democrat Party, Libertarian Party, and/or Green Party?)
https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/516036-journalism-or-partisanship-the-medias-mistakes-of-2016-continue-in-2020
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If there were any doubt left after 2016 as to what too much of the mainstream news media in America has become, it most certainly has been erased in 2020. Too often, many in my industry have revealed themselves as little more than propaganda tools for dueling political sides, no longer reporting the way journalists once did. We compete for the latest anonymous “scoop,” scandalous rumor or unsupported accusation. We pounce on the supposed “bombshell” du jour and hype it on the news, accompanied by endless round robins with political operatives. Many of us don’t even bother to find and report on stories that powerful people and interests aren’t pushing. To do this, too many of us have abandoned basic tenets of journalism. We ignore the suspicious timing of the handout “leaks” or scandals — as if nobody notices. We fail to explore or disclose sources’ motivations or conflicts of interest — as if nobody wonders about them. We don’t even pretend to assess the true news value of the “bombshell.” We’re simply happy to be of service to the propagandists; we invite them to use us, and our superiors reward us with admiration. Many of our peers either repeat the reporting, seek to confirm it using equally dubious methods or discredit it. Rarely do we step back and consider that the whole drama is being orchestrated by political puppet masters who count their successes by the number of news stories they generate.)

Ever-increasingly, instead of issuing press releases, government officials, political party leaders, and candidates issue “statements” to “preferred reporters.” I should write a book about the many times since 2000 that instead of issuing a press release, government officials, political party leaders, and candidates in Illinois have sent a “statement” to a “preferred reporter.” I am not a “preferred reporter” because I refuse to a) give preferential treatment to, b) glorify and praise, c) pander to, d) serve as an operative or dupe for, or e) give money to government officials, political party leaders, and candidates. Further, I should write a book about government officials, political party leaders, and candidates who since 2000 have refused to keep diersen@aol.com on their press release and press advisory lists, that is, who refuse to treat me as being a member of the news media. They do not want me to a) know about their events, b) promote their events, c) attend their events, d) ask questions at their events, or e) report on their events.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Despite some heated moments between demonstrators, Labor Day pro-Trump rally in Highland Park a peaceful one: City officials – JAMES T. NORMAN (DIERSEN: What if someone tried to organize a pro-Trump rally in your municipality, in your township, or in your county? What permits would they be required to get? How many weeks or months in advance of the rally would the application for a permit have to be filed? What would the permit fees cost? What restrictions would have to be complied with? Would elected officials allow a pro-Trump rally? How many would attend a pro-Trump rally? Which of your local Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders would want to speak at a pro-Trump rally?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Highland Park police estimated that more than 300 people attended a pro-President Donald Trump rally Monday that was, overall, peaceful despite moments of contention between counter-demonstrators who showed up. Much of the three-hour Labor Day rally, which took place at the intersection of Central and St. Johns avenues, included participation from a few local organizations and groups, city officials said. Also, there was a heavy police presence. City Manager Ghida Neukirch said the city had assistance from multiple police departments, including Lake Forest, Highwood, Metra and the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System. She said the police presence was comparable to that of an event that was held in June, where the city saw more than 2,000 individuals come out. “We just wanted to staff appropriately in the event there was conflict between the groups …. Really thanks to the law enforcement representatives, the organizers, the attendees,” Neukirch said. “Because everyone was able to come together and express their different viewpoints in a peaceful manner.”)

— Alderwoman’s question about Trump boat rally on Lake Springfield turns up heat as election nears – Brenden Moore (DIERSEN: If a Trump boat rally took place in your municipality, in your township, or in your county, which activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, etc. would a) oppose it and b) defend it?)
https://www.sj-r.com/news/20200911/alderwomanrsquos-question-about-trump-boat-rally-on-lake-springfield-turns-up-heat-as-election-nears
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DiCenso said she was enjoying a day at the lake with her son and niece when she noticed the parade of boats “hooting and hollering and tooting their horns and having a jolly old time on Lake Springfield,” which is city-owned property. DiCenso said she fielded several calls complaining about the parade. CWLP chief utility engineer Doug Brown told City Council members that a permit had not been requested, and Zerkle, though acknowledging that a “boat parade” was not something the city typically deals with, said it was likely allowed under the First Amendment. “Generally speaking, the courts are going to protect freedom of speech,” Zerkle said. “So, absent a public safety concern — boats too close, driving too fast, unsafe activities by way of jumping out of the boats into the water, things of that nature — there’s going to be a preference to support the First Amendment.” The question was asked and answered, and the discussion was seemingly over within five minutes. But, it turns out, it was only the beginning. On Thursday, DiCenso became the target of fierce criticism from Sangamon County Republican Party chairwoman Rosemarie Long, who was responding to information on a flier that’s been making the rounds on social media. The flier claimed that DiCenso, following Tuesday’s meeting, had described the boat parade as “horrid and unacceptable” and that she had plans to propose an ordinance that would prevent the displaying of political signs and flags on lake property. The flier has been distributed to various lake clubs and to lake lease owners. Long, speaking at the party’s committee call, said she was “getting goosebumps because I’m so mad” about the claims. “I cannot tell you how upsetting this is to me,” Long said. “What happened to freedom in this country, in this town, in this county when they just think about not letting you place your American flag in your yard?” But DiCenso flatly denied the claims made in the flier, saying they contained “completely made up statements.” She also said she has never proposed preventing political signs or flags from being displayed on lake property and has no plans to introduce such a plan.)

https://radio.foxnews.com/2020/09/10/sarah-huckabee-sanders-i-wish-there-were-more-good-reporters-in-the-white-house-briefing-room/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders talks about her new book Speaking For Myself and what she thinks about the reporters she faced in the White House Briefing Room. “I wish there were a lot more good reporters in that room. I wouldn’t put Jim (Acosta) on that list, but there are some of the toughest, shrewdest journalists from around the world that sit in there and throw tough questions at you day after day. And I do appreciate the work that they do and the service they provide to the country. I just would like to see them be a little bit more fair to this President and this administration.” “They would take anything that he said and make it as negative as possible. I witnessed that every single day and still see that even from the outside. No matter what this President does, no matter how successful he is, no matter what he accomplishes, they will find a way to attack it. And I think that is sad that most of those individuals, the liberal media elite, have decided that they hate Donald Trump more than they love our country. And I think that’s pretty disgraceful. I’m sad that we’ve gotten to that place.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state’s current Republican leadership — Chairman Tim Schneider, National Committeeman Richard Porter and National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte — came to Ives’ defense in a joint statement that contended “identifying and labeling Pat Brady as a Republican is false and misleading.” Ives weighed in on Twitter, saying: “Of course Pat Brady endorsed Sean Casten. Amoral, ruling class political hacks stick together.” “Pat Brady is a liberal Democrat and has been for some time. Sean Casten may have the backing of political hacks but Jeanne Ives is supported by hard working taxpayers,” the statement said. . .Schneider, who is now coming to Ives’ defense, was Rauner’s hand-picked state GOP chairman and denounced the 2018 ad. He said it did not reflect the Illinois Republican Party, called it a “cowardly attempt to stoke political division” and asked her to apologize and remove it. She did neither. State Republicans who are running a “races to watch” online program to help raise funds for a variety of contenders did not include Ives. State GOP officials said she declined to participate in the fundraising effort, but they support her candidacy.)
