https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200716/downtown-wheaton-shopkeeper-remembered-for-doing-things-his-own-way
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since his death, flowers have been left outside the clothing business. His wife said Thursday it’s too soon to say what will happen to the building. “While I understand the community interest in the development of Mr. Sandburg’s building, at this time it is important to give the family time to grieve their loss,” Downtown Wheaton Association Executive Director Elle Withall said in a statement. “When the family is ready to move forward with a decision on the property the DWA will be here to offer any assistance we can to ensure the best use for the development of downtown Wheaton.” . . . A visitation will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Hultgren Funeral Home, 304 N. Main St., Wheaton, followed by a funeral service at 11 a.m. Only 50 attendees are allowed at any given time because of COVID-19 safety protocols. For those unable to attend, a livestream will be available on the funeral home’s website. Memorial donations can be sent to Friends of DuPage County Animal Care and Control, 120 N County Farm Road, Wheaton.)

— ‘This is a Wheaton I really never thought I’d see.’ Months after author’s talk was canceled over LGBTQ themes, suburb embraces Pride. – Heidi Stevens (DIERSEN: To promote LGBTQ activity is to promote the destruction of traditional marriage and the traditional family. Before they got elected or appointed, did those who run your municipality say that they would use their office to promote BLM and/or LGBTQ activity? What if BLMers, LGBTQers, and/or other Trump-haters officially took over your neighborhood, your precinct, your municipal district, your downtown, your municipality, your township, your county, or Illinois, of have they already? From what I see, sooner or later, if not already, BLM and LGBTQ will demand that your city council do the following: get rid of the municipality’s residents, organizations, and companies a) that do not promote BLM and LGBTQ activity and b) that are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. How will your city council respond? How soon, if not already, will the BLMers and LGBTQers in your municipality invite Shaun King to lead protests in your municipality? What if the BLMers and LGBTQers in Wheaton succeed in doing that? How soon, if not already, will the leaders of the world, America, Illinois, your county, your township, your municipality, and your municipal district officially ban the promotion of traditional marriage and the traditional family, that is, how soon will the aforesaid leaders officially force you to promote LGBTQ activity? There are no protections for those like me who do not promote BLM and LGBTQ activity. How soon, if not already, will employers officially get rid of their employees who do not promote BLM and LGBTQ activity? How soon, if not already, will organizations officially get rid of their members who do not promote BLM and LGBTQ activity? How soon, if not already, will countries, states, counties, townships, municipalities, and municipal districts officially get rid of their residents who do not promote BLM and LGBTQ activity? Will you comply with request/demands that you kneel before BLM and LGBTQ promoters?)

— Is America Starting Down the Path of Nazi Germany? – Wayne Allyn Root (DIERSEN: In your county, in your township, and in your municipality, who takes the lead in promoting hatred against the following: those who are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time? I should write a book about those in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton who promote hatred against the aforesaid.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of us don’t fly an American flag at our homes. We don’t dare put a Trump sign on our lawn or in our store window, or put a Trump bumper sticker on our car, for fear of violence or vandalism. On the TV, we all see supposedly rational and respected people calling us racist solely because of the color of our skin. Our free speech is monitored, censored, shadow-banned or outright banned by those who control social media. Our great American history is being destroyed, denigrated or erased. Radicals are toppling the statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and even abolitionists — heroes who bravely fought against slavery. A black NASCAR driver can wrap his car with “Black Lives Matter,” but an NBA announcer loses his job for tweeting, “All Lives Matter,” and a Philadelphia newspaper editor is forced to resign for writing, “Buildings Matter, Too,” as his city burns. NFL superstar quarterback Drew Brees was forced to beg for forgiveness for saying he will always stand for our national anthem. College football coach Mike Gundy was forced to beg for forgiveness from his players for wearing a T-Shirt with the name of the conservative One America News Network. Demented never-Trumper Rick Wilson tried to destroy Domino’s pizza for thanking a prominent Trump supporter for a compliment on its pizza in a corporate tweet…in 2012 …before Trump ever even got into politics.)

— OUTRAGEOUS, DISGUSTING: Glen Ellyn community confused as march organizers aim to rename ‘white supremacist’ Abraham Lincoln Elementary School
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/539650833-glen-ellyn-community-confused-as-march-organizers-aim-to-rename-white-supremacist-abraham-lincoln-elementary-school
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An anonymous group is gearing up to march on Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Glen Ellyn in an attempt to get District 41 to change the name of the school. A flyer put out by an unknown organization reads “Public institutions should not be named after white supremacists” and includes a quote from Lincoln regarding his fortune in being born white. Lincoln, the country’s 16th president, was a state legislator and congressman from Illinois before ascending to the country’s top leadership position. Lincoln is responsible for the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which formally abolished slavery. “This is so preposterous that it must be a hoax,” Jeanne Ives, a former state legislator and candidate for Illinois’s 6th congressional district said. “Striking Pres. Lincoln’s name from a school? We will keep a watch on this to see if it is real. I stand ready to defend President Abraham Lincoln’s legacy as the Great Emancipator.” Others in the community aligned with Ives regarding the seemingly obvious flawed rationale behind the march. “I am very opposed, but I thought people should know,” John Mitchell said when posting the listing on the Happening in Glen Ellyn Facebook page. Mitchell said the march was real when asked by a poster. “Ummm… isn’t he the one that ended slavery?” Tim Nancy Kehayias said. Jeff Castle was not so restrained. “This is abhorrent,:” Castle posted on Facebook. “Do you ever notice it’s always the same people protesting? College-age kids who have almost no responsibility in life but a protest sounds exciting because we’ve been cooped up at home because of Covid so hell yeah let’s get out there and do something exciting. “Suburban white liberal women who are ‘like super woke n stuff’ Whose husbands pull in 200K+ a year, beta males who Would do just about anything to please their Battle axe of a wife, All of which hate Trump because he’s a racist misogynist xenophobe but have absolutely zero proof of that. Life is too short for this and it’s also not guaranteed, People need to enjoy time with their family and friends and worry about life at home.” The march is announced to begin at 7 p.m. tonight – Saturday, June 13 – with opening remarks outside of the Lake Ellyn boathouse. The group will then walk to the Glen Ellyn village office, give more remarks and walk back to the boathouse. A contingent of pro-Lincoln supporters have noted they will be attending the event and host a counter rally with facts about Lincoln’s efforts which culminated in the abolition of slavery.)

WASHINGTON POST
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A Trump-hater says “The most racist president in modern history revels in violence.” Ever-increasingly, Trump-haters label Trump and his supporters as being racists. To label someone as being a racist in America today is like labeling someone as being a Jew in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. Needless-to-say, individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are labeled as being racist should sue those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that labeled them as being racist. Needless-to-say, the Republican Party should sue the Democrat Party.)

CITY OF WHEATON
— Wheaton Police Department Evening Community Update
https://www.wheaton.il.us/civicalerts.aspx?AID=412
(FROM THE UPDATE: Earlier this evening Governor JB Pritzker signed a disaster proclamation to expedite the use of state resources, personnel and equipment to help municipalities keep residents safe; DuPage County was one of the nine named counties. The Governor also activated an additional 250 members of the Illinois National Guard and over a hundred Illinois State Police Troopers to support various jurisdictions throughout the state in their work to protect communities. Numerous communities surrounding Wheaton have continued to experience increased criminal activity including arson, criminal damage to property and vehicles, the looting of businesses, and some violent crime. Many of Wheaton’s businesses have chosen to board up or reduce their hours of operation during this time. The Wheaton Police Department will continue to protect our community with a heavy patrol presence in our business districts and residential neighborhoods until this ongoing countywide crisis is stabilized. The Wheaton Police Department will continue to be alert for potential threats to the community. If you witness criminal or suspicious activity, the Wheaton Police Department encourages you to get to a safe location and call 9-1-1 for police response.)

HUFFINGTON POST
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, to call someone a racist today in America, is like calling someone a Jew in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. Ever-increasingly, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs make it clear that they want to get rid of those who they call racist once and for all. Ever-increasingly, they call those who are members of the following groups racists: Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older people, rich people, gun owners, German Americans, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.
