GOP says census figures prove political maps drawn by Democrats are ‘unusable, unlawful’ Republicans say the legislative boundaries signed into law in June will “be declared void” because of population differences that exceed federal limits.

AMERICAN RENAISSANCE
— What’s Ahead for Whites – Jared Taylor
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about turncoat Whites who promote hatred against Whites, and especially against Whites who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, male, older, non-veteran, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.amren.com/videos/2021/08/whats-ahead-for-whites/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What’s ahead for white people in this country? First, there will be fewer of us. . .And we’re getting more non-whites. . .If you think this is a “great replacement,” Wikipedia says you believe in “a white nationalist conspiracy theory.” . . . Our country treats whites like a problem that must be solved. . .Every big organization has an army of people promoting “diversity.” Diversity means fewer white people, especially white men. . .You’ve heard of Critical Race Theory, which says all white people have unfair privileges and oppress everyone else whether we want to or not. That’s just our nature. . .Not one elected official talks about the interests of whites. I can’t remember when a politician even said anything good about white people. We are citizens of this country, but we might as well be stateless people who are just allowed to live here. Our government treats us like an embarrassment. The George Floyd riots were an eruption of contempt for whites. . .So, what’s ahead? More non-whites and their white “allies” will make policy. Blacks and Hispanics can’t succeed the way we do, so there will be ruthless preferences for them that will mean discrimination against us. Congress could pass new laws, but it won’t have to. Every non-white preference today is based on “civil rights” laws that were supposed to ban racial discrimination – so laws don’t matter. There could be race quotas for directors and executives of all companies. Race quotas for juries and grand juries – and these would be floors, not ceilings. Our rulers will pressure private companies to muzzle dissidents. They could tell banks not to give us mortgages. Cut off our electricity, water, telephone. If that doesn’t work, call what we say hate speech and make it a crime. If the Supreme Court tries to save the First Amendment, pack the court. Impose a “reparations” tax. Every white person making more than a certain amount would pay an additional 10 percent of gross income. There could be an even bigger “white privilege” tax on inheritances. Whites got their wealth through oppression, so they shouldn’t be able to pass it on. Make anyone buying a gun sign a diversity pledge. Impose a stiff anti-hate tax on any marriage license granted to two white people. “Progressive stacking” will become routine. That means, in a group, white people – especially white men – speak last. And when whites speak in public, they will start by confessing their white privilege and apologize for standing on land they stole. The CDC, along with 200 local jurisdictions, says racism is a “serious public health threat.” Declare white neighborhoods a public health threat and force them to integrate. We did it with school busing; we can do it with neighborhoods. I don’t know if all these things will happen; some will, for sure. But oppression will intensify at different rates in different places, so whites will gather in the least oppressive ones. You can move to one of those places. Whites will eventually elect representatives who stand up for them. You should be a part of that. The bitter truth is, we can’t save the whole country. We built it and we made it great, but it’s not ours anymore. Our goal should be local autonomy and eventual independence, so encourage all secession movements. Liberals are vicious, but if we are determined to leave, I don’t think they will kill us just to keep our corpses in the Union. Our rulers hate our history and despise us. They should be happy to see us go. So, it’s up to us to make this happen, and up to us alone. The decision is ours. If we want a place of our own on this continent, where we can be an outpost of Europe – without apologies and for ever – we have to make it happen.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A group in Illinois is looking for chapters across the state to help keep tabs on teaching plans they say are dividing children. A parent in Naperville, Shannon Adcock, said she became aware of “culturally responsive teaching” when she was unsuccessful in running for the school board. She said the more she learned about it, the more she felt it was regressive and divisive by teaching children race or gender directly impacts outcomes. “You are having students segregated by their color, by their sexuality, by their any number of filters that an activist teacher can choose and say ‘so because of your skin color you are a problem, because of your skin color you will never make it in life, because of this intangible systemic problem in one of the greatest countries in the world,’ and to me, it’s to me extremely anti-Americanism, it’s anti-child and I believe it to be child abuse,” Adcock told WMAY. “Teach history, there’s no question about that, but when you begin filtering students, this becomes a problem and it’s a violation, a constitutional violation.” She said the curriculum can take many different names and forms, so she and others seeing similar trends in other parts of the state started the website AwakeIL.com as a way to share information with taxpayers, parents and educators about trends around the state. “We are going to preserve the integrity of our constitution, state and federal, and we’re going to take that divisive curricula and segregationist approach to education out of our classrooms,” she said.)
