I should write a book about the successes that Democrats and their Libertarian, Green, and RINO enablers have had in DuPage County, DuPage County’s 4th District, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton’s West District, my precinct, and my neighborhood. According to those who run your municipality, your township, your county, and Illinois, what percent of those in your municipality, in your township, in your county, and in Illinois are racist? Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, RINOs, and other hate-filled Trump-haters hint/imply/argue/shout that all Republicans are racists who should be gotten rid of once and for all. Ever-increasingly, the aforesaid hate-filled Trump-haters hint/imply/argue/shout that the more votes that Republican candidates get in a precinct, municipal district, municipality, county district, county, or state, the more racist that precinct, municipal district, municipality, county district, county, and state is.)

https://www.heritage.org/civil-society/commentary/nations-values-under-attack-we-must-do-stop-the-lefts-socialist-agenda
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One look at the BLM organization’s website shows that the idea of protecting black lives and seeking justice is merely a vehicle to advance a radical set of ideas. Groups like Antifa and the BLM organization want to impose an ideology on America that would only bring greater poverty. America is a land of promise, and conservative policies can make those promises ring true for all Americans.)
