— Germany’s Nazi past, and the right-wingers who want to hide it – Editorial  (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government 1966-1969 and 1971-1997, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates always reminded my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates that I was 100% German national origin.  Virtually all my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates had loved ones who were killed or injured by Germans during WWI and/or WWII. In my defense, I stressed that all my ancestors had immigrated to northeast Illinois during the 1840s and 1850s, that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s sides fought the Germans in WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always painted being German national origin and being Missouri Synod Lutheran as being extremely negative.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps demonize, denigrate, and condemn men.
— U-46 school board candidates debate ‘racism’ in curriculum – Madhu Krishnamurthy  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Whites run organizations, companies, governments, and countries.  Ever-increasingly they demonize, denigrate, and condemn Whites.  Ever-increasingly, they blame Whites for all the problems that minorities have had, are having, and will have. Ever-increasingly, they make it clear that they want to get rid of Whites. Ever-increasingly, in fear of anti-Whites or wanting to curry favor with anti-Whites, more and more and more Whites become anti-White themselves.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two of five candidates vying to lead the state’s second-largest school district say a newly adopted high school social studies curriculum promotes “racism against white males” at a forum Thursday. Incumbent board President Donna Smith of Hanover Park, and incumbent trustees Veronica Noland and Cody Holt, both of Elgin, face challengers Melissa Owens of Bartlett and Enoch Essendrop of Elgin for three 4-year term seats on the Elgin Area School District U-46 board April 4 hosted by the district’s Citizens’ Advisory Council. At a February school board meeting, Holt and board member Jeanette Ward voted against adoption of the new curriculum, which Ward said had a “pervasive liberal bias.” Ward quoted the following passage about discrimination from the textbook “Macgruder’s American Government”: “White Americans have been historically reluctant to yield to nonwhite Americans a full and equal place in the social, economic and political life of this nation. Over time, the principal targets of that ethnic prejudice have been African-Americans, Native Americans, Asian-Americans and Hispanic Americans. The white-male-dominated power structure has also been slow to recognize the claims of women to an equal place in American society.” She said it “smacks of racism against white males.” The curriculum was approved by a 5-2 board vote. Essendrop, 19, a student at Providence Baptist College in Elgin running on a similar platform as Holt, said he shared Ward’s perspective. “I can’t believe that we find ourselves in the 21st century still judging people by the color of their skin and not the content of their character,” he said, paraphrasing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. “We need to stop putting people in different groups and admit that we are 100 percent Americans.” Noland, 50, an alumna of the district’s Hispanic Parent Leadership Institute elected to her first term in April 2013, rejected Ward’s notion. “I believe my fellow board member’s comments are actually quite racist,” she said. “I’m opposed to censorship of materials … you head down the road toward book burning and I am completely opposed to that.”  She added, it is wrong to impose a “narrow ideology” over an entire school district. Holt, 25, a 2010 graduate of Larkin High School elected in April 2015 to a 2-year unexpired term, said he would like to see the district adopt “curriculum that presents both sides of any issue, that way students can come to their own conclusions.” “Being able to send your child to a school that sets its own curriculum is where we need to go in the 21st century,” Holt said. Smith, 59, who has served on the board since 2001, said she voted for adopting the curriculum because it went through a process of evaluation. “It has been vetted by a lot of educators,” she said adding, anyone can find something offensive in any textbook. “I have the faith in our educators that they would take those textbooks and supplement them with other resources.” Owens, 48, chairwoman of the U-46 Citizens’ Advisory Council, said she agreed with the board’s decision on the curriculum as well as providing cultural competency training for teachers. “We have to recognize the fact that we have a minority-majority district,” she said adding such training allows teachers to recognize that “students see things through different filters based on their experiences.”)

— Democrats: No answers from state agencies on where to make cuts -Doug Finke (DIERSEN: Obviously, when the Democrats who ran GAO during the 1980s and 1990s were asked where to make cuts, they said get rid of the agency’s employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

— AS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S STRANGLEHOLD ON ILLINOIS TIGHTENS: Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti joins Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler to raise awareness about childhood hunger
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti joined Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler, Kellogg’s and No Kid Hungry for the “Give a Child a Breakfast” event in downtown Chicago to raise awareness about childhood hunger. “One in five kids in Illinois is hungry. This is an important issue to me because I know what it is like to grow up with food insecurity,” said Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti. “My mother had me when she was only 15, and my parents often had to choose between paying the rent and putting food on the table.” Lieutenant Governor Sanguinetti addressed a group of students from Marshall High School and talked about her own experiences. The students were invited to the “Give a Child a Breakfast” event by Kellogg’s, where they had breakfast, had the opportunity to meet the lieutenant governor and play basketball with Butler. “Child hunger is not an issue isolated to large cities – it is prevalent in all 102 counties in Illinois,” Lieutenant Governor Sanguinetti said. “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We want our kids to have access to a healthy breakfast so they can stay alert in the classroom and excel in school.”)

— THORNER/O’NEIL: CONSERVATIVE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS FACE UNPRECEDENTED BIAS  (DIERSEN: UIC accepted me in 1966, NIU in 1969, Loyola in 1972, DePaul in 1980, and IIT in 1992, but, because of my demographics, I doubt that they would accept me today. Ever-increasingly, universities are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-non-poor people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH VERY BIG COLOR PICTURE: BEYOND DISGUSTING: BEYOND TRAGIC: HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: After Long Drug War, Columbia Joins Pot Trade – NICHOLAS CASEY  (DIERSEN: Of course, in America, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs want make lots of money by turning everyone into stoners, that is, they want to make lots of money destroying America.  Who are the biggest pot pushes in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois?  How much money do they give politicians?)
— With Trump in White House, Some Executives Ask, Why Not Me? – JAMES B. STEWART  (DIERSEN: Executives should be advised that ever-increasingly, government and politics is disgustingly negative and nasty. I should write a book about the most disgustingly negative and nasty politicians, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. The aforesaid, treat me like I am shit.  Far too many get involved in government and/or politics for the wrong reasons, usually to get power to manipulate/dominate individuals, manipulate/dominate organizations, manipulate/dominate companies, manipulate/dominate governments, and/or manipulate/dominate countries.)
— More Men Are Taking ‘Women’s’ Jobs, Usually Disadvantaged Men – Claire Cain Miller (DIERSEN: Are/were you disadvantaged? What women’s jobs have you held?  I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School. My understanding is a) that I was the first and only White male to hold that job and b) that I held that job longer than anyone else.  Was I disadvantaged?  Neither of my parents had attended college, my father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, and my mother never attended high school.  I had Osgood-Schlatter disease (SEE:  My vision has never been correctable to 20/20.  I have partial red/green color blindness. My father, who fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, worked in the office of a chemical plant in Chicago Heights and almost always worked second jobs, usually playing music, to pay the family’s bills.  My mother stayed home and raised my brother and I.)

— A Census That Divides and ‘Nudges’  Trump should reject the creation of yet another interest group. – MIKE GONZALEZ  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the worst possible demographic to have is White.  Ever-increasingly, anti-Whites viciously demonize, denigrate, and condemn Whites as being racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things. Ever-increasingly, in fear of anti-Whites or wanting to curry favor with anti-Whites, more and more and more Whites become anti-White themselves.  Who are the leading White anti-Whites in your municipality, in your township/ward, in you county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world?)
