— ‘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?)
