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.)

NEW YORK POST
— The agenda of Black Lives Matter is far different from the slogan – Mike Gonzalez and Andrew Olivastro (DIERSEN: To promote BLM is to shout that you hate individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://nypost.com/2020/07/01/the-agenda-of-black-lives-matter-is-far-different-from-the-slogan/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many see the slogan Black Lives Matter as a plea to ­secure the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, especially historically wronged African Americans. They add the BLM hashtag to their social-media profiles, carry BLM signs at protests and make financial donations. Tragically, when they do donate, they are likely to bankroll a number of radical organizations, founded by committed Marxists whose goals aren’t to make the American Dream a reality for everyone — but to transform America completely. This might be unknown to some of the world’s best-known companies, which have jumped on the BLM bandwagon. Brands like Airbnb and Spanx have promised direct donations. True, others like Nike and Netflix have shrewdly channeled their donations elsewhere, like the NAACP and other organizations that have led the struggle for civil rights for decades. These companies are likely aware of BLM’s ­extreme agenda and recoil from bankrolling destructive ideas. But it requires sleuthing to learn this. Companies that don’t do this hard work are providing air cover for a destructive movement and compelling their employees, shareowners and customers to endorse the same. Just ask BLM leaders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi. In a revealing 2015 interview, Cullors said, “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.” That same year, Tometi was hobnobbing with Venezuela’s Marxist dictator Nicolás Maduro, of whose regime she wrote: “In these last 17 years, we have witnessed the Bolivarian Revolution champion participatory democracy and construct a fair, transparent election system recognized as among the best in the world.” Millions of Venezuelans suffering under Maduro’s murderous misrule presumably couldn’t be reached for comment. Visit the Black Lives Matter Web site, and the first frame you get is a large crowd with fists raised and the slogan “Now We Transform.” Read the list of demands, and you get a sense of how deep a transformation they seek. One proclaims: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear-family-structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another.”)

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?

https://fordauthority.com/2020/06/u-s-ford-social-media-advertising-to-shut-down-for-30-days-as-boycotts-continue/
(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.”)
