DAILY HERALD
— Safe DuPage celebrating law enforcement on July 4 – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200703/safe-dupage-celebrating-law-enforcement-on-july-4
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville’s fireworks are being shot off from the south side of town and the debut of The Naperville Salute has been postponed until 2021, but there is one Fourth of July event planned to bring patriotism to the downtown Saturday. Safe DuPage, an organization formed by Naperville City Council member Kevin Coyne, is hosting “Celebrating Naperville’s Heroes: 4th of July” at 9:30 a.m. at the base of the Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower at Rotary Hill, 455 Aurora Ave. Coyne said the event will include music and speakers in a socially distanced format with all attendees asked to wear masks and follow U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Attendees also are asked to wear red, white and blue and to bring an American flag to wave. The purpose of the gathering, Coyne said, is to celebrate American independence and local safety. Speakers are set to include veterans, community leaders and elected officials. “We thought it’d be nice for an assortment of reasons to kick off the Fourth of July with a nice, patriotic-themed event that recognizes our public safety officers in Naperville who have done such a great job for so long,” Coyne said. The event is not a pro-police rally, like the one June 27 in Elmhurst, at which DuPage County Board member Pete DiCianni was seen on video confronting counterprotesters. But in the wake of protests about the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Coyne said, it’s important to show local law enforcement professionals they are appreciated. “You can’t have a free society that’s safe without good, strong law enforcement,” he said. “I think our police officers in general and our community needs to know that we’re not turning our back on our police, and police need to be respected.” The Fourth of July event is one of several Safe DuPage has hosted since forming early this year to promote public safety. Other town hall-style events, in person or online, have covered topics including crime, substance abuse, youth issues and court procedures. The events have featured elected officials and nonprofit leaders as speakers. For details about the event, visit https://safedupage.org/events/ .)

https://www.syracuse.com/news/2020/07/onondaga-countys-only-july-4-fireworks-show-still-a-go-but-theres-a-catch.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LaFayette fireworks display comes with its own bit of political intrigue: the event is being organized by Dave Knapp, the Republican chairman of the Onondaga County Legislature. LaFayette’s town supervisor, who helped bring the event together, is Republican Danny Fitzpatrick, son of longtime District Attorney William Fitzpatrick. And McMahon, also a Republican and the former county legislature chairman, said Friday that his administration played a role in changing the scope of festival based on pandemic concerns. But McMahon said Friday that, at no point, did he threaten to shut the event down.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many see the slogan Black Lives Matter as a plea to ­secure the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, especially historically wronged African Americans. They add the BLM hashtag to their social-media profiles, carry BLM signs at protests and make financial donations. Tragically, when they do donate, they are likely to bankroll a number of radical organizations, founded by committed Marxists whose goals aren’t to make the American Dream a reality for everyone — but to transform America completely. This might be unknown to some of the world’s best-known companies, which have jumped on the BLM bandwagon. Brands like Airbnb and Spanx have promised direct donations. True, others like Nike and Netflix have shrewdly channeled their donations elsewhere, like the NAACP and other organizations that have led the struggle for civil rights for decades. These companies are likely aware of BLM’s ­extreme agenda and recoil from bankrolling destructive ideas. But it requires sleuthing to learn this. Companies that don’t do this hard work are providing air cover for a destructive movement and compelling their employees, shareowners and customers to endorse the same. Just ask BLM leaders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi. In a revealing 2015 interview, Cullors said, “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.” That same year, Tometi was hobnobbing with Venezuela’s Marxist dictator Nicolás Maduro, of whose regime she wrote: “In these last 17 years, we have witnessed the Bolivarian Revolution champion participatory democracy and construct a fair, transparent election system recognized as among the best in the world.” Millions of Venezuelans suffering under Maduro’s murderous misrule presumably couldn’t be reached for comment. Visit the Black Lives Matter Web site, and the first frame you get is a large crowd with fists raised and the slogan “Now We Transform.” Read the list of demands, and you get a sense of how deep a transformation they seek. One proclaims: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear-family-structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Because the Left’s accelerating campaign to force compliance with the dictates of the Blacks Lives Matter movement reeks of the Right’s 1950s anti-Communist Blacklisting demagoguery. Back then the political climate favored the outing of communists, fellow travelers, comsymps (communist sympathizers) and any left-wing or liberal whose writing, speech or even thoughts made them dangerous. They were expelled from their jobs, hunted down by fanatical Republicans like the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy and dragged before an inquisition by the House UnAmerica Activities Committee.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Younger car owners are more likely to see their vehicle as utilitarian, and they’re trickier for product makers to market to. Millennials don’t love their cars the way their elders did, and if you make car wax, that’s a problem. “Going after 20-and-unders is something we haven’t had to do in a long time,” said RJ de Vera, global customer engagement leader at Meguiar’s, one of the largest car care product manufacturers, which is owned by 3M. As baby boomer car buffs age out, Meguiar’s and competitors such as Turtle Wax, Mothers, Collinite and others must court a generation that is the first to largely find car ownership a headache and driving a chore — and see cars as a encumbrance rather than a status symbol.)

https://abc7chicago.com/columbus-statue-thrown-into-lake-in-richmond-va/6240352/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A statue of Christopher Columbus in Richmond was torn down by protesters, set on fire and then thrown into a lake. The figure was toppled less than two hours after protesters gathered in the city’s Byrd Park were chanting for the statue to be taken down, news outlets reported. After the figure was removed from its pedestal around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday by protesters using several ropes, a sign that reads, “Columbus represents genocide” was placed on the spray-painted foundation that once held the statue. It was then set on fire and rolled into a lake in the park, NBC 12 reported. There was no police presence in the park, but a police helicopter was seen circling the area after the city-owned figure was torn down, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. The city’s parks department did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the fallen statue from the Associated Press. Earlier during the day, Activist Chelsea Higgs-Wise and other protesters spoke to a crowd gathered at Byrd Park about the struggles of indigenous people and African-Americans in America. “We have to start where it all began,” Higgs-Wise said during her speech. “We have to start with the people who stood first on this land.” The Columbus statue was dedicated in Richmond in December 1927, and had been the first statue of Christopher Columbus erected in the South, the newspaper reported. Its toppling comes amid national protests over the death of George Floyd and several days after a statue of Confederate Gen. Williams Carter Wickham was pulled from its pedestal in Monroe Park by demonstrators who also used ropes to tear it down. Native American advocates have also long pressed states to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day over concerns that Columbus spurred centuries of genocide against indigenous populations in the Americas. Vanessa Bolin, a member of the Richmond Indigenous Society, told the crowd she did not come “to hijack” the protests against police brutality, but to “stand in solidarity” with the people. Another speaker, Joseph Rogers, declared the area “Powhatan land,” and talked about how white supremacy and institutionalized racism has impacted both groups.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Even in the opinion section, only approved thought is permitted. We’re in the dawn of a high-tech, bloodless Cultural Revolution; one that relies on intimidation, public shaming, and economic ruin to dictate what words and ideas are permissible in the public square. “Words are violence” has always been an illiberal notion meant to stifle speech and open discourse. Popularized by a generation of coddled and brittle college students, it now guides policy on editorial pages at newspapers such as the Philadelphia Inquirer, the New York Times, and most major news outlets.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Wheaton, Carmin Awadzi came to a Black Lives Matter rally at Adams Park out of fear. Two of her children were going, and she wanted to make sure nothing happened to them. She even told her 16-year-old son to wear his Wheaton Warrenville South High School sweatshirt so people would know he belonged. “That’s our lives every single day here in Wheaton,” she said. “And I’m having to explain that to people — people that we’ve known for a very long time, educated people who are professionals. My husband and I are in the 1% but it still doesn’t matter.” The rally drew a diverse, young-skewing crowd of several hundred who listened to speakers reflect about racial injustice throughout America and close to home.)

Police also have increased patrols. Some businesses may remain open. Before visiting, customers should call ahead to ensure the business is open and confirm their hours.)

— ‘We’re not going to let this happen anymore’ Protesters pack Wheaton park to decry racism – BOB RAKOW (DIERSEN: It would be great if a transcript of everything that was said by the protest speakers would be published.)
https://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2020/06/03/were-not-going-to-let-this-happen-anymore-protesters-pack-wheaton-park-to-decry-racism/ak15fz8/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three speakers were scheduled for Wednesday’s Black Lives Matter protest in Wheaton’s Adams Park. But 90 minutes after the protest started, more than 20 people had taken the bullhorn, stepped before the crowd of about 1,000 people and offered passionate, emotional and fervent pleas to end racism and police violence against black people. The speakers were while and black, male and female, young and old, but the message was the same: racism in all its forms must end and the battle to stop it once and for all is just beginning. The 1 p.m. protest was planned for Memorial Park, which is fenced off and undergoing improvements, leading participants to move to nearby Adams Park. Protesters, many carrying signs with a wide array of messages including “Black Lives Matter,” “Only Justice Will Bring Peace” and “We Cannot Be Silent Because the Dead Cannot Speak,” formed a large circle in the center of the park and listened to and applauded each speaker, many who initially did not plan to address the crowd. The protest was one of several held Wednesday in DuPage, Cook and Kane counties as people harnessed the opportunity to vent their anger and frustration following the May 25 death of George Floyd, who was killed while in police custody in Minneapolis. “It’s disgusting that we’re begging people to understand that our lives matter, and there are people saying, ‘but this and but that.’ But that’s reality, right? No, because we’re not going to let this happen anymore,” said one speaker, who declined to give her name. “We are not criminals. We are not animals,” she said. “We are humans, we’re beautiful and we are loved,” she continued. She also chastised people who have criticized the phrase Black Lives Matter because they contend it excludes other races. “All lives matter,” she said. “We’re not screaming that only black lives matter. It’s because all lives matter that we are here protesting the ones that are actually targeted. “We’re not here to start a race war, we’re here to end one and finally be at the same level as you. So please, if you’re human, have humanity, open your eyes to what’s been going on in this country because I’m tired of having to explain to you why I’m scared, why I feel little, why l feel hurt.” Jerome Jackson attended the protest with his wife, Julie; son, Lincoln, 6; and daughter, Quinlan, 7. Jackson, a Wheaton resident, said it was critical that his children see the formation of a movement designed to end racism and bigotry. “The importance is for them to not only understand the importance of the message that Black Lives Matters and what it means to the greater good of society, but to our own family knowing that I’m an African American myself and raising two bi-racial children. It’s important for them to understand their roots and culture.” Jackson added that he doesn’t want his children to experience the bigotry he endured as a child. “As someone who grew up primarily in the 80s, I was subjected to bigotry and racism, and I’ve said from the moment they were born that I want them to grow up in a society that doesn’t’ view them for their skin color or tone and just views them as human beings,” he said. He added that the size of the protest was encouraging. “I’m very happy to see as many young people out supporting this cause and just standing up for what is right,” Jackson said. Following the protest, participants marched through downtown Wheaton chanting “Black Lives Matter.” Dan Clinch of Wheaton said he attend the protest because “it was the right thing to do.” “This just can’t go on,” he added. “What happened in Minneapolis, there’s no excuse in the world for it.” Clinch said he expects the movement to continue because Floyd’s death was a tipping point. “You heard the young people today,” he said. “This was very impressive.” Clinch’s daughter, Campbell, a Wheaton North graduate, and a friend of some of the speakers, said she saw numerous racist incidents while attending the high school. “You hear the N-word, you do hear things about white supremacy, you hear people calling African Americans animals. There’s no justification for that,” she said.)
