(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.)

From what I see, first, they will focus on destroying Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members who do not hate Trump. They will focus on those IRP SCC members who have the heaviest weighted vote. Then, second, the officers of Republican county party organizations who do not hate Trump. They will focus on officers in counties that have the most Republican voters. Then, third, the officers of Republican township/ward party organizations who do not hate Trump. 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. Of course, I will report everything that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters do a) to destroy me, b) to destroy my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters , and c) to destroy those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “If this is simply branded as a Republican effort the likelihood of success is very slim,” said Tim Rosales, a Republican consultant who was a senior adviser to the campaign of John Cox, a businessman who lost to Newsom in 2018 and is running again. His firm recently stopped working with Cox. Beyond Cox, the top Republicans in the race so far are former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and ex-U.S. Rep. Doug Ose, who last held office in 2005. Neither is close to a household name, though Faulconer has been barnstorming the state to raise his profile.)
