— You’re leaving me no choice, Secretary White (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have treated me like they would ban me from their events if they could. I would focus on past and present leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), Illinois Republican Party (IRP), Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on past and present activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, and defendants in lawsuits that I have filed who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout and paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Everyone in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois sees how the aforesaid have treated me. The aforesaid have discouraged me from attending the DCRCC fundraiser this Friday evening. The aforesaid a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the IRP platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject the MTRO resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, c) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, d) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, and/or e) are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid.)
