— DIERSEN HEADLINE: What is your national origin? I am 100% German American. All my ancestors immigrated from what is now Germany to northeast Illinois during the 1840s and 1850s. My grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI. My uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII. My father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who demonize, denigrate and condemn German Americans. I would focus on those who are German American themselves, but who demonize, denigrate, and condemn German Americans to curry favor with and to pander to those who demonize, denigrate, and condemn German Americans.)

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/07/11/bidens-2020-party-platform-proposal-seeks-to-abolish-americas-suburban-communities/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden’s radical proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities by forcing low-income housing into every neighborhood and flooding every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise. The proposal, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide instant amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for the 22 million illegal aliens now living in the nation. Astoundingly, it would also give legal status to all the world’s refugees regardless of the legitimacy of their claim to the status.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2014, I wrote the book “The Murder of the Middle Class.” Don’t look now, but sadly … tragically … it’s really happening. The left is crazy, extreme, radical, violent and ready for civil war. The Republican right — outside of President Trump — is a bunch of pathetic wimps ready to raise the white flag. We are the closest we’ve ever been to losing America. Have you ever seen as many spineless Republican politicians as we see today? Black Lives Matter is a Marxist group that is said to fund the Democratic National Committee. Republican Sen. Mike Braun says he supports Black Lives Matter. He also supports eliminating qualified immunity for cops. That’s the end of police in America. With Republicans like him, who needs enemies? Republican Sen. Mitt Romney marched with Black Lives Matter. How can anyone be such a dupe?)

I should write a book about that. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. They outrageously painted the graduate business courses that I had taken at Loyola and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul a) as being not job-related, b) as not helping me carry out my job duties, and c) as being taken by me to get a job in the private sector.)

— Wall Street campaign to hire Black talent isn’t going so well – Kelsey Butler (DIERSEN: GAO audits federal financial industry regulators. Compare and contrast how GAO treats its Democrat employees who are minority, female, and/or younger. GAO focuses on retaining and promoting its Democrat employees who are minority, female, and/or younger. To make way for them, GAO gets rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who 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 GAO employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: For Black professionals who get job offers on Wall Street, there’s pay and benefits to consider. But also isolation, bias and racism. As big U.S. banks and asset managers vow at long last to address the industry’s dearth of Black executives, those who have been around a while warn progress will require more than the usual hiring spree. Offices remain alienating and even inhospitable. Most organizations lack mentors who can help guide the way up the org chart. Recruiters say top Black candidates have learned to be skeptical. “Folks are looking for welcome signs,” said Anthony Wright, founder of Diversity Recruiters, a Seattle-based executive search firm that helps clients including banks with inclusive hiring. “And when you’re a minority, the sign doesn’t say ‘Welcome,’ the sign says ‘Is there anybody there that looks like me?’ ”)

(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.)

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. This will be socially distanced, masks required and they will be offered. Please bring, water, umbrellas and sunscreen. This is in conjunction with our summer activism school. If you or your group wants to cohost or be involved please pm us. We want as many people to make statements as we can whether they come or not. 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.)
