WASHINGTON TIMES
— Top 10 recent examples of cancel culture – Kelly Sadler
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have worked the hardest to cancel others. They focus on canceling those like me a) who they cannot manipulate/dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, and/or e) who refuse to give them money. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County’s 4th District, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on those who blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who have been candidates on ballots in my precinct.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/feb/16/top-10-recent-examples-cancel-culture/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: We’re in a sad place as a society when somebody’s firing and/or cancellation is celebrated more than their life’s work. And yet, here we are. Below is a list of the top 10 cancellations, all that have occurred within the last year. Many on this list are notable names, people who will find other work and/or have the position and power to stand up to the woke crowd. It’s the names not represented who are the true victims — like those who have had their college acceptances rejected because of a social media post they made in high school — who were canceled before they ever could get started. They are not famous, and their names are not known. Not surprisingly, cancel culture cuts one way. If you say something too conservative and mildly offensive, the woke hall monitors on social media will find you. And if you’re famous, all the better, as Hollywood and corporate America seems to have embraced this new form of blacklisting:)

I would focus on those who have been candidates on ballots in my precinct.)
https://www.mercedsunstar.com/news/california/article249286800.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A California Republican lawmaker introduced two bills on Tuesday that aim to ban discrimination over a person’s political views, characterizing the package as an effort to fight ‘cancel culture.’ “Cancel culture and the efforts to silence differing opinions and voices should be a growing concern for all of us,” said Sen. Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore. “A climate of intolerance has been established and has stifled healthy and normal debate. Anyone who values their own freedom of speech should be concerned.” Senate Bill 238, also known as the Diversity of Thought Act, seeks to add political affiliation as a protected class under the Fair Employment and Housing Act. That law currently bars employment and housing discrimination based on someone’s race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, familial status, marital status, disability, nationality and source of income. The other bill, Senate Bill 249, would amend California’s education code to prohibit discrimination, harassment intimidation and bullying in schools based on an individual’s political affiliation. Cancel culture, or ‘canceling,’ is the act of ostracizing a public figure or private citizen online or in public for behavior considered questionable or controversial. The terms have joined the cultural lexicon in recent years. The terms are commonly used in conservative media in the context of the entertainment industry, social media or mainstream news media, with right-leaning activists alleging bias against their views. For instance, former President Donald Trump’s supporters claimed he was a victim of “cancel culture” when Twitter and Facebook stripped him of his social media platforms when the companies concluded his campaign to retain power after losing the 2020 election risked inciting violence. Mike Madrid, a California-based Republican political strategist, said he’s not surprised that a Republican is seeking to make political affiliation a protected class. “It’s really symbolic of the Republican Party embracing the politics of victimization and grievance,” he said, adding that both Republicans and Democrats participate in cancel culture. He said free speech, even if it’s vile, should be protected, but “you can’t whine and cry about not suffering the consequences when you’re saying horrible things about people.” Well-known figures who have been ‘canceled’ as of late include former “The Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano, who was fired by television executives after she compared the experience of Republicans in today’s political climate to the plight of Jews during the Nazi Germany era on social media, according to reports. “It is unfathomable to me that corporations and members of the public would ruin a person’s career, business and family because of their political ideology,” Melendez continued. “A free society shouldn’t allow thoughts and ideas to be censored. Free speech covers all speech, not just that with which you agree.” Hector Barajas, communications director for the Senate Republican Caucus, said Melendez’s bill addresses the issue of blacklisting individuals by providing them protections against discrimination. “For those that like to talk about tolerance and diversity, they should also be tolerant of other people’s diverse opinions,” he said in a statement. “Tolerance should be a two-way street because the other road leads to a dead end.”)

https://news.stlpublicradio.org/government-politics-issues/2021-02-11/new-chairman-takes-control-of-missouri-republican-party-thats-riding-high
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For newly elected Missouri Republican Party Chairman Nick Myers, his primary goal as leader of the state GOP is pretty simple. “My goal is to elect Republicans,” Myers said. Myers, a certified public accountant from Newton County and longtime party insider, said Missouri Republicans are well positioned to defend a U.S. Senate seat and capture the state auditor’s office next year. And based on the party’s off-the-charts performance in rural and exurban counties, those hopes appear within reach. Missouri Republicans have had four good election cycles in a row — most recently 2020, in which the party swept key statewide races and faced minimal losses to its supermajorities in the Missouri General Assembly. There are plenty of theories behind Republican ascendency, including capturing bellwether areas like Jefferson County or historically Democratic turf in northeast and southeast Missouri. Myers points to how Missouri voters tend to be more conservative and are therefore more responsive to a party that embraces right-of-center ideas. “I think that the Republican Party on the platform, and in general principles, is in sync with Missourians,” Myers said. “And when Missourians understand what the Republican platform and principles are, they will come out and vote for that.”)

https://townhall.com/columnists/ilanamercer/2021/02/12/rising-republican-rotters-to-look-out-for-n2584640
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Political pygmy Adam Kinzinger was another young GOPer to rush onto the “enemedia” to announce his hackneyed vision for reclaiming the GOP from the deforming clutches of Trump and MAGA America. Last month, Kinzinger voted to impeach President Trump. He further swelled the chorus by announcing that “the Republican Party had lost its way. If we are to lead again, we need to muster the courage to remember who we are.” So original. So inspirational. “We need to remember what we believe and why we believe it,” Kinzinger continued. “Looking in the mirror can be hard, but the time has come to choose what kind of party we will be, and what kind of future we’ll fight to bring about.” (CNN) With his Country First initiative, Kinzinger evinces his inability to comprehend that, for him, the “Country” ought to comprise of his constituents, the people he represents. It is the lead of his constituents that Kinzinger is obliged to follow, not his own political métier. Kinzinger is a spawn of the military. While we’re at it, let us dispatch for once and for all of the conservative mythology surrounding the philosophical fabric of the military, these days (in Kinzinger’s case the reserve). Isn’t it obvious the military is becoming a morass of leftism, statism, feminism, reverse-racism, interventionism, propositionalism, and other poisonous creeds? If nothing else, the Trump years have made it clear that the military brass has aligned with the Left.)

— Racism in Real Estate? Major Realtors’ Association Confronts the Issue – Lew Sichelman
(DIERSEN: If you asked those who have bought homes in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, and in your county during the last 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50+ years the following questions, what would they say: a) what were the main reasons why you bought your home, b) what is your political affiliation, and c) what did your realtor say to about political trends? From what I see, about 4 out of 5 homebuyers in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County’s 4th District, and in DuPage County are Democrats. Ever-increasingly, it seems like realtors are steering Democrats into my neighborhood, into my precinct, into Wheaton’s West District, into Wheaton, into Milton Township, into DuPage County’s 4th District, and into DuPage County. Ever-increasingly, Democrats make it clear that they hate Republicans.)

FOX NEWS
— Study dismissing conservative concerns about Big Tech bias was funded by far-left Biden mega-donor. Billionaire Craig Newmark gave millions to Poynter Institute, which published ‘blacklist’ of conservative sites in 2019. – Brian Flood
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who blacklist me and blacklist my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct who have lost elections, their major donors, their political consultants, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers. I would focus on those who I have sued.)
https://www.foxnews.com/media/study-dismissing-conservative-concerns-big-tech-bias-funded-joe-biden-mega-donor
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Poynter, which operates PolitiFact, infamously published a blacklist of 515 websites it deemed “unreliable” in 2019. The overwhelming majority were conservative, and it encouraged advertisers to not support them. Poynter ultimately apologized for the report, which was penned by an employee of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center. Newmark has also called on Big Tech platforms to “take action” against “bad actors” online. “The social media platform[s] know who the bad actors are. They know who the foreign adversaries are, they know who their domestic allies are,” Newmark said on the Digiday podcast last year. “They should take action against all of them.” Conservatives have accused social media platforms of everything from shadow banning them to restricting free speech. Former Facebook employees admitted in 2016 to restricting news stories of interest to conservative readers from its “trending” section, and Big Tech employees have overwhelmingly favored Democrats in their political donations.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: After months of public outrage and accusations of discrimination over the disparate penalties, New Port Richey police dropped the citations against Boneta and six other Black Lives Matter demonstrators in early January.

— How Early Trump Supporters Feel Now The former president’s 2015 backers, in their own words – Conor Friedersdorf
(DIERSEN: How soon, if not already, will your municipality, your township, your county, Illinois, and America officially publish their blacklists? From what I see, the more of the following that you are, the more blacklists that you will be on: law enforcement officer, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/01/how-early-trump-supporters-feel-now/617815/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you don’t agree with Democrats, then the Dems use social media to punish you for wrongthink. You are canceled. You can lose your job. You go on a blacklist. People who support Trump or worked in his administration are now blacklisted as punishment for their beliefs. This is what they do in communist countries, not free America. What the hell has happened to our country in the past year anyway? Riots and looting are permitted if performed by antifa but not peaceful protests by Trump supporters. Antifa infiltrates our rallies to make us look bad. Nobody cares. It is not investigated. [The Freedom of Information Act] is denied, citing privacy concerns. Thus anger among conservatives continues to build up like a volcano about to explode because we are stymied at every turn and there is no outlet, no justice, just corruption.)

DAILY HERALD
— Oppose racial profiling – Bradley Williams, Mundelein
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20210127/oppose-racial-profiling
(FROM THE LETTER: HB0038 is currently in committee of the Illinois House of Representatives. This bill should concern Illinoisans who aspire for a community so beautifully described by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as one where people “will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” In a departure from Dr. King’s aspirations, HB0038 calls for consideration of race in the hiring process of public-school teachers. This would seem to violate several federal and state civil rights laws. Specifically, the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003 which explains that a unit of the state cannot “subject a person to discrimination under any program or activity on the grounds of that person’s race, color, national origin, or gender,” as well as the language of the Illinois Human Rights Act which prohibits race-based discrimination in employment. While one component of HB0038 undermines Dr. King’s message through employment considerations, another does so through mandates of curriculum and instruction at the local level. Starting as early as elementary school, HB0038 would require students to learn curriculum based in a discipline of academia that places race as an essential and defining part of human interaction. In this model, one’s status as oppressor or oppressed is heavily determined by skin color. In one application of this curriculum, groups of third-grade students analyzed their racial and sexual identities according to “power and privilege” and then wrote reflections on their status as being either privileged or oppressed. One parent described the activities as “basically teaching racism.” Humbly, I submit, a society that places race as an essentially defining element of most human interaction is not one so admirably envisioned by Dr. King. With that in mind, Illinoisans should oppose HB0038.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater promotes Adam Kinzinger and Joe Walsh. In my opinion, my becoming the only active member in GAO’s Chicago office in a class action lawsuit that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation in 1988 when I was 40 years old was as serious as Kinzinger’s voting to impeach Trump in 2021 when he was 42 years old. My Democrat GAO superiors immediately threw me off audits of IRS and gave me an adverse job assignments, unfair performance expectations, and unfair performance appraisals. They might have succeeded in getting rid of me if Henry Hyde had not come to my defense. However, they continued to keep me off audits of IRS, to give me unfair performance expectations, to give me unfair performance appraisals, and to always rank me in the lower half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. In 1997 they succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” They were furious that I became Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997 and that I earned a job-related master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997 because the aforesaid frustrated their efforts to get rid of me. If I had had drinking problems like Kinzinger had, I would not have gotten jobs washing dishes 1964-1966; cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline in 1966; delivering mail 1966-1969; working on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumping gasoline 1971-1972; collecting delinquent taxes 1971-1980; or auditing federal agencies 1980-1997. IRS would not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974 and GAO would not have promoted me in 1986. If I had had drinking problems like Kinzinger had, Loyola might not have accepted me in 1972, DePaul might not have accepted me in 1976, and IIT might not have accepted me in 1992. If I had had drinking problems like Kinzinger had, I doubt that I would have passed CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 or passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. Kinzinger is a veteran. Starting in 1966, my Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates always used my avoiding the draft against me.)
