— Taft High School refuses students’ request to start conservative group

— Right-wing group’s attempt to open at Chicago high school rejected. After talk of starting a Turning Point USA chapter at Taft High School emerged, the school’s principal said they will “never tolerate” student groups that go against the school’s values. – Clare Spaulding
(COMMENT: I should write a book about a) those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) as being right wing and even worse things and b) those who have done the most to destroy those organizations. I would focus on a) past and present leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization, b) past and present Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, c) conservative and religious leaders, d) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers, and e) those who I have sued. I served as the TAPROOT chairman 2005-2012 and as an ICRC Steering Committee member 2003-2007.)

(COMMENT: It was more difficult for my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government to negatively stereotype me because I had earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. Because of that, they did more to negatively stereotype my demographics: White, male, old (born in 1948), draft avoider, conservative, Republican, heterosexual, married since 1978, non-poor, gun owner, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German American, Crete resident 1972-1948, Wheaton resident since 1978, and my ancestors had been in America since 1844.)
