What do you say to those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but focus on blacklisting me and blacklisting my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/target-mtv-blocked-ads-from-news-mentioning-george-floyd-and-protests-11594576272
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Last month Target Corp. told a leading online news publisher not to run its ads in stories related to the Black Lives Matter movement. Articles mentioning police-brutality victims such as “Breonna Taylor” and “George Floyd” were off limits, as were those with the word “protests.” Target and other advertisers that compiled similar “blocklists” say they were respecting the sensitivity of the issue and wanted to avoid the appearance of exploiting tragedies. News publishers say such moves effectively punish media companies for covering important issues, since they earn less money from content where ad-blocking is prevalent. Blocklists aren’t new: Before this year, many brands already were sidestepping articles with words like “shooting,” “bomb,” “immigration” or even “Trump,” hoping to avoid associations with controversial topics. The ad blocking went to a new level in 2020—first, as the terms “Covid-19” and “coronavirus” made it onto many blocklists, and more recently with the addition of terms related to the Black Lives Matter movement. “It’s defunding our journalism at a time when it’s imperative for us to be the front lines doing this kind of work,” said Paul Wallace, Vice Media’s vice president for global revenue products and services. Black Lives Matter coverage was Vice’s most popular news in June, yet commanded ad prices 57% lower than news about other topics because so many brands are actively avoiding placing ads in those articles, he said. “The most frustrating part of all of this is that the brands that are sending this stuff are standing on a pedestal saying that they support BLM,” he said. A Target spokesman said the retailer’s ad blocking “does not discount the importance of reporting on topics like Black Lives Matter or the murder of George Floyd. It’s intended to acknowledge that the person consuming that content may not be receptive to a marketing message from a mass retailer like Target at that time.” The spokesman added, “Target stands with our Black team members, guests and families.”)

https://patch.com/illinois/wheaton/calendar/event/20200714/856167/the-majoritys-retirement-party-a-protest-march-and-rally
(FROM THE PROMOTION: This event will celebrate the retirement of the majority rule over the second-largest county in the state, which we predict will happen after the county election this November. We hope to educate participants about and demand the removal of Peter DiCianni, a member of the DuPage County board who has shown disrespect towards his constituents and the black community as well as endangered their health, as detailed by Hinsdale for BLM here and by multiple news outlets (Patch, MySuburbanLife.com). We also are pushing for 22 state policy initiatives that could be done in the next Illinois legislative session that would help stop the killing of BIPOC when they are signed into law. We will aim to raise awareness about things like the Census, Mail-in Voting, and the Illinois Fair Tax proposal. This event includes speakers (local candidates, youth activists and organizers, and educators), a COVID-19 testing car caravan, voter registration, public commenters sent to the DuPage County board meeting, a march, music, and a celebration to mark the upcoming retirement of the Republican majority in the board, which we predict will happen by the end of this year.)

In other words, a battle between racist supporters of President Trump versus the pure and virtuous woke warriors rioting in the streets, killing cops, firebombing buildings and ripping down statues, supposedly in the name of George Floyd. But, how did we get here, Mr. Biden? You have been in power longer than just about anybody else alive. You were in the United States Senate for more than 35 years. You fondly recall yukking it up with racist segregationists in your own party for decades. For 47 years, you have been at the highest echelons of power. You were chairman of two of the most powerful committees in Congress, one of which gave you unrivaled authority to shape the federal judiciary. In your final eight years of power, you were in the White House. There you served as the wise elder statesman over the executive branch of government — a post you want voters to return you to. Such White Privilege. At the very least, Mr. Biden, you are responsible for the racist hellhole that you claim is half of America. Why would anyone expect you to fix a mess you are responsible for, a mess you refuse to even take responsibility for? White Privilege. Most troubling of all, why should anyone expect you to fix a mess that you have either ignored or proved yourself incapable of fixing during the 47 years you have lorded over every branch of the federal government? Sheer, unadulterated White Privilege. Turns out that in the 47 years that Mr. Biden has presided in Washington, he was just clearing his throat. Just warming up. Is there any more grating and obnoxious display of patriarchal White Privilege than the constant clearing of one’s throat? It is what powerful, old white men do when they have nothing to say — they have no answers — but they sure don’t want anyone else to speak up.)

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. There will be a free COVID testing Car Caravan. There will be people to register voters and help them learn about the different electoral issues happening in the next 120 days. There will be celebration cupcakes and music to mark the retirement! There will be a march as well. We will ensure that attendees learn how to get involved, get a civics education, participate in a community renaissance and have fun.

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.)

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.)
