— Group warns of ‘non-violent ideological war’ in classrooms Pritzker says critics of CRT are ‘right wing’ – Greg Bishop
(DIERSEN: Who is leading the fight against CRT in your school district? It would be great if the Illinois Republican Party would publish on its website a list of those who are leading the fight against CRT in each of the 102 counties. It would be great if each of the 102 Republican county party organizations would publish on their websites a list of those who are leading the fight against CRT in each of the school districts in their county.)

(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.)

— JULY 1, 2011 FLASHBACK: Do July 4th festivities make you Republican? – LUCY MADISON
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about the ever-increasing opposition to Wheaton Independence Day parades and opposition to Republican participation in them. Of course, January 6 has increased opposition to Wheaton Independence Day parades and opposition to Republican participation in them.)
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/do-july-4th-festivities-make-you-republican/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new study argues that July 4th celebrations may not be as innocent as they seem – at least from the democratic perspective. According to the report, published by Harvard University, July 4th-themed festivities (defined by the study as fireworks, parades, political speeches, and barbecues) not only energize primarily Republicans, but also turn children into Republicans and increase GOP voter turnout. Simply put: “Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” says the report, which was written by Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam. “The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century,” the authors write. “Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party.” The study suggests that celebrating July 4 is, essentially, a lose-lose proposition for Democrats: Not only will they not likely gain any devotees from the festivities – they might actually lose some. “There is no evidence of an increased likelihood of identifying as a Democrat, indicating that Fourth of July shifts preferences to the right rather than increasing political polarization,” the study continues. Children, the authors posit, are particularly vulnerable to the implications of the (apparently) politically-loaded parades. “Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans,” say Yanagizawa-Drott and Madestam. “We were surprised to find that childhood experiences of Fourth July celebrations could have such persistent effects. The evidence suggests that important childhood events can have a permanent impact on political beliefs and behavior and that Fourth of July celebrations in the US affect the nation’s political landscape,” adds Yanagizawa-Drott. Of course, not everyone will be particularly concerned with the possible political implications of July 4th celebrations. If you’re looking for a more patriotic experience, you might want to check out a parade in a particularly Republican-skewing part of town – according to the report, “Republican adults celebrate Fourth of July more intensively in the first place.”)

BOSTON HERALD
— APRIL 24, 2019 FLASHBACK: Dracut bars local Republicans from marching in Memorial Day parade – AMARIS CASTILLO
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about the ever-increasing opposition to Wheaton Independence Day parades and opposition to Republican participation in them. Of course, January 6 has increased opposition to Wheaton Independence Day parades and opposition to Republican participation in them.)
https://www.bostonherald.com/2019/04/24/dracut-bars-local-republicans-from-marching-in-memorial-day-parade/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Last week, the Dracut Republican Town Committee was not allowed to march in the town’s Memorial Day Parade on May 27. On Tuesday, they were. Finally, by midday Wednesday, the committee was barred again, turning the festivities into a political hot potato. Town Committee Chairman Brian Genest, in an email to The Lowell Sun, called the decision “… the underbelly of Dracut politics at its worst. The town is trying to pass the buck, which is total nonsense, and the Board of Selectmen should be ashamed of the political tactics they are allowing to silence free speech and our right to march. … “Our organization is a group of dedicated and patriotic town citizens who support our veterans, our community and our country. Stopping our group from marching is just plain wrong. Our members include an Air Force veteran and an Army veteran!” Richard Ducharme, commander of the American Legion Post 315, made the post’s final decision, citing its national policy on participation by political organizations. He said the Legion puts on the event, while the town helps organize the order of bands and participants. “It’s a Legion policy and that goes all the way to Nationals. We are not supposed to be affiliated with any political groups,” Ducharme said. “I appreciate them trying to support us and they can do that, but as far as marching in a group, we cannot allow that. We let the GOP go in, we let the Democrats in and the Independents, and we don’t want to turn this into a political rally. The Memorial Day Parade is somber. It’s to remember our fallen comrades.” “What is so questionable about letting Republicans honor and support our veterans?” an angry Genest said over the phone Monday. “They’d rather have a patriotic dog than a patriotic Republican. It’s nothing but pure and petty politics.” Genest said on Monday he believed Town Manager Jim Duggan was behind the initial ban. Duggan, in an email, said he was not going to politicize the event. On Tuesday night, the board of selectmen became involved. Duggan was directed to permit the town committee to march, after back-and-forth and disagreement between Duggan and a few of the selectmen. Duggan raised concerns about political candidates marching in the parade and said he checked with the Old Home Day Committee, the members of which at first allowed political groups to have tents at the event but later reversed their decision. Genest accused the Old Home Day Committee of discriminating against the town committee in the past. Dave Paquin of the Old Home Day Committee said that years ago they were forced to ban political candidates and groups from participating in the community event because attendees complained they were being harassed. Duggan on Wednesday said the town’s role in the Memorial Day parade is strictly to coordinate and enforce the wishes of the American Legion, and outreach. A flier uploaded onto the Dracut government website said participation in this year’s parade is open to businesses, individuals and organizations. Participation ideas included dance and karate studios, decorated antique and classic cars, and dogs in patriotic attire.)

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— JUNE 30, 2011 FLASHBACK: Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing University study says parades turn youngsters into Republicans. – Paul Bedard
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about the ever-increasing opposition to Wheaton Independence Day parades and opposition to Republican participation in them. Of course, January 6 has increased opposition to Wheaton Independence Day parades and opposition to Republican participation in them.)
https://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2011/06/30/harvard-july-4th-parades-are-right-wing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day. “Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard. “The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans,” write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam. Their findings also suggest that Democrats gain nothing from July 4th parades, likely a shocking result for all the Democratic politicians who march in them. “There is no evidence of an increased likelihood of identifying as a Democrat, indicating that Fourth of July shifts preferences to the right rather than increasing political polarization,” the two wrote. The three key findings of those attending July 4th celebrations: When done before the age of 18, it increases the likelihood of a youth identifying as a Republican by at least 2 percent. It raises the likelihood that parade watchers will vote for a Republican candidate by 4 percent. It boosts the likelihood a reveler will vote by about 1 percent and increases the chances they’ll make a political contribution by 3 percent. What’s more, the impact isn’t fleeting. “Surprisingly, the estimates show that the impact on political preferences is permanent, with no evidence of the effects depreciating as individuals become older,”said the Harvard report. Finally, the report suggests that if people are looking for a super-patriotic July 4th, though should head to Republican towns. “Republican adults celebrate Fourth of July more intensively in the first place.”)

(DIERSEN: This is racial gerrymandering.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20210521/proposal-could-give-hispanic-residents-more-representation-on-kane-county-board
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The plan drew concern from Ron Ford, the only Black county resident on the current board. His current district is part of the eight new proposed ones. Consultants said they were unable to create a majority Black district in the county because the Black population is too small and spread out. “I know for a fact that’s not what the community’s going to want to hear,” Ford said. “There’s an African-American district that works as it is.”)

The will focus on officers in townships/wards that have the most Republican voters. Then, fourth, Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains who do not hate Trump. They will focus on Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains in precincts that have the most Republican voters. But beyond the aforesaid, of course, hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters will focus on destroying those Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, major donors, political consultants, reporters, journalists, etc. who have the greatest impact in Illinois.

— The U.S. Postal Service desperately needs a few good men and women. Maybe you? The post office’s ongoing delivery problems could open a window of opportunity for people now that it’s looking to hire. Here’s what you need to know. – Mary Mitchell
(DIERSEN: The Post Office hired me in 1966 when I was 18 years old because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2021/4/30/22412910/postal-service-mail-jobs
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The United States Postal Service says it’s one of the “leading employers of minorities and women. Minorities comprise 39% and women 40% of the workforce, 21% of employees are African-American; 8% are Hispanic; 8% are Asian-American/Pacific Islander, and 0.67% are American Indian or Alaska Native.” . . . So here is where the community could make a difference — if you’ve got the right stuff. The Postal Service is hiring. “This is an opportunity for those who want to work for the post office because they are hiring up to 500 city letter carriers, and these are jobs that can change lives,” Julion says. The union representative tells potential employees these jobs could help them become homeowners and be able to afford that new automobile. “These are good union jobs,” he says. Prospective mail carriers will have to pass drug tests and background checks and have a clean driving record for at least two years. “The post office has been posting jobs like mad,” Julion says. “With people retiring, there is going to be a constant flow of jobs.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— Kinzinger: The tyranny of the reasonable – David Hale
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/05/the_tyranny_of_the_reasonable.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The tyranny of the reasonable is: if you’re not “reasonable,” you don’t get a voice, and you don’t count. This is perfectly expressed in the 16th District Republican congressman, Adam Kinzinger. The dashing young Kinzinger with steely eyes and square jaw and canned, even, toned verbal delivery comes across as erudite, serious, and reasonable — a political figure who just “wants what’s best for everybody.” But nothing is farther from the truth. His cooperation with the left has for the past decade chipped away at American freedom through his decisions on Capitol Hill and eroded our liberties a bite at a time. Kinzinger cooperates and coordinates with members of the Democrat Party who have a deep allegiance to extremist ideas of open borders, redistribution of labor and wealth in the form of money from American’s paychecks, division through racial unrest and strife, and transgender tyranny in our schools and even in school bathrooms. Despite this extensive cooperation with the party of “Marx in America,” he is considered a reasonable, thoughtful political figure. So much easier to gulp down lies when told to us through a smile with even, serious tones. People like Kinzinger delivering their message do not seem like radicals or extremists. They seem reasonable. Kinzinger has learned this tactic and executed this persona with perfection, yet his allegiances are anything but reasonable. His allegiances are radical and extreme and part of what is transforming America into a debt-laden, morally bankrupt, tyrannical dictatorship that is closing the noose of tyranny around our freedoms and liberties. People who consider themselves reasonable consider Kinzinger the same, yet they don’t look deeper than Kinzinger’s surface persona. Beneath this reasonable persona is a man who has created and led our nation into a worse condition than it has ever been — deeper in debt, morally bankrupt, crime-ridden, with joblessness, rioting, racial division, and a whole host of social and economic problems.)
