I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.

I would focus on my critics/opponents who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Democratic Party of Illinois, in an unprecedented move, has also intervened school board races throughout Illinois.

— April 4 Voter Cheat Sheet: Who are the Republicans and Democrats running in 24 competitive DuPage school board elections? (COMMENT: Democrats promote the Democrat Party platform, that is, Democrats promote a) dependency on government and charity, b) sexualization and LGBTQ, c) abortion, d) mass/illegal immigration, e) diminishment of Second Amendment rights, f) booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, and g) Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, CRT, 1619, BLM, reparations, and wokeness/wokeism, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Of the 24 school boards, 18 currently have Democrat majorities, according to an analysis of elected official primary voting history. All told– 134 candidates are running for 83 open seats across the 24 districts, including 52 incumbents. That includes 74 Democrats and 46 Republicans. 7-0 Democrat school boards in DuPage County include Glen Ellyn SD 41, Westmont CUSD 201 and Naperville CUSD 203, where two GOP challengers are looking to join a board unanimously supportive of pro-“Critical Race Theory” district superintendent Dan Bridges. . .Some districts are sure to flip. Carol Stream CCSD 93 is currently 4-3 Republican. It has six seats up– the most in DuPage County. But all nine candidates running to fill them are Democrats. Of the 168 current school board slots in the 24 competitive districts, 107 are held by Democrats, 52 by Republicans and nine by an independent.)

— There could be many violent reactions to transgenderism’s collapse – David Freddoso
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The message of transgenderism is that a man can become a woman (or vice versa) simply by force of will or perhaps by putting on certain effeminate affectations or having certain surgeries. This message — so long as it is not forced on children — is harmful but not violent per se. The violence comes as a result of the one and only persuasive argument for transgenderism, which runs roughly as follows: “If you don’t agree with me about this, then I’m going to kill myself.” If you have been courageous enough to debate this issue at all, then you have encountered this “argument.” Perhaps it is not your interlocutor personally threatening suicide, but rather making the threat on behalf of millions of youth who will supposedly (no evidence for this, but fine) kill themselves unless they are immediately affirmed in what are probably just fleeting gender confusions through irreversible surgical and hormone treatments. So what to make of this argument? I think this is all you need to know: If a friend ever says to you in real life, “If you don’t do X, then I’ll kill myself,” please call the police immediately and get that person help. Even without a professional diagnosis, such a statement is ipso facto proof of mental illness and makes clear that the person speaking is a danger to himself and probably to others as well.)

— Trans Anti-Christian Video Game Attacking ‘Gender-Critical Tyrants’ Released Months Before School Attack – JOSHUA KLEIN (COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote LGBTQ.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A video game featuring a transgender hero who shoots down trans critics — including priests — in order to allow players to “unleash [their] pent-up fury upon the gender-critical tyrants with an arsenal of deadly weapons” was published by a trans game developer two months before Monday’s Christian school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee. Titled “Terfenstein 3D,” the game’s name is a play on the pejorative term “TERF” or “Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist.” According to, it refers to an “advocate of radical feminism who believes that a trans woman’s gender identity is not legitimate and who is hostile to the inclusion of trans people and gender-diverse people in the feminist movement.” The game is a spinoff of the classic Wolfenstein, the longest-running first-person shooter series, where an American Army captain protagonist battles off evil Nazis. However, in the Terfenstein version, Nazis are replaced with enemies such as religious clergy and transgenderism critics who are to be hunted and killed. A trailer for the game released in advance appears to show the main character gunning down unarmed priests. The game was released in mid-January this year by trans game developer Sandra Moen and is available on the Steam video game digital distribution service. According to the developer’s description on the site, the game entails “escaping a gender-fascist concentration camp.” “Unleash your pent-up fury upon the gender-critical tyrants with an arsenal of deadly weapons and tactics in cathartic bliss,” it reads. It further states: “The game offers LGBTQAI+, transgender, and feminist themes of gender-critical people and what a post-war apocalyptic world would look like if gender fascists won. In this dystopian world, fascists have killed and imprisoned all transgender and queer people, subjecting them to harsh conversion therapy, imprisonment, and death. You play as an escapee fleeing their detention center, while you exact your revenge. This game brings to light the very real transphobic violence many transgender people face for just existing. And draw a comparison between gender critics and nazi Germany.” It also claims that the ability to “artistically express yourself is a proven way to heal trauma and possibly also move on.” Only nine days prior to the attack, Moen appeared delighted that the game was gaining positive momentum. “How fun! recent reviews have gone from ‘mixed’ to ‘mostly positive,’” Moen wrote alongside a smiley face. “Want to contribute to the trans community by supporting a trans game developer? AND KILL fascist TERF’s?” Moen wrote last month. “Try my game ‘Terfenstein 3D.’” Later, Moen called the game a “call to action,” having previously explained that “TERF’s are not the only fascists you have to endure when you’re transgender.” The transgender movement has been accused of pushing hostile and apocalyptic rhetoric leading up to the deadly shooting of a Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, which left six dead, including three nine-year-old children. The shooter was later revealed to be Audrey Hale, who identified as transgender. Several notable tweets appear to show gun-toting transgender activists threatening critics. “[I]f you transphobes do try to come for me I’m taking a few of you with me,” wrote one activist. In a now-deleted tweet, another transgender individual with an AR-15 and a handgun is pictured along with the words “Kill christcucks. Behead christcucks” and “crucify filthy christcucks” as well as “slam dunk a christcuck baby into a trashcan.” In one bizarre image, Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan can be seen wearing a shirt that says “protect trans kids” alongside an illustration of a knife. Last month, left-wing radicals called for a “Trans Day of Vengeance” in Washington, DC, with the goal of stopping “trans genocide” by raising money for firearms. On Wednesday, Twitter restricted accounts of prominent conservative politicians, journalists, and activists that raised awareness over the “Trans Day of Vengeance.” Hale, who identified as a man, is the fourth transgender mass shooter in almost as many years. In 2018, Snochia Moseley, a man who identified as a woman, wounded three and killed three after opening fire at his place of employment in Aberdeen, Maryland. In 2019, a Colorado woman who identified as male shot up a school, killing one and wounding eight. Last year, a Colorado man accused of shooting up a gay nightclub, killing five and wounding 18, identified as transsexual. Noting the pattern, political columnist Benny Johnson concluded: “One thing is VERY clear: the modern trans movement is radicalizing activists into terrorists.”)

— Democrats say “Twitter removes tweets about Trans Day of Vengeance.” Democrats ever-increasingly a) run America and b) demonize, denigrate, and condemn those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican as being White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. Of course, the aforesaid incites violence against those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But trans activists were quick to point out that “trans day of vengeance” is a meme that has been around in the trans community for years and is not a call to violence — and said Twitter is misguided in its reasoning behind removing the tweets in support of the protest. Evan Greer, director of the nonprofit liberal advocacy group Fight for the Future, said Twitter’s actions are “the latest example of Big Tech companies employing double standards in content moderation.” “They are slow to moderate content targeting trans people, but quick to silence us when we speak out or push back. ’Trans Day of Vengeance’ is not a specific day or a call for violence. It’s a meme that’s been around for years, a way of expressing anger and frustration about oppression and violence the trans community faces daily,” Greer said. “Context is everything in content moderation, which is why content policies should be based in human rights and applied evenly, not changed rapidly based on public pressure or news cycles.” The poster in question is a largely text-based digital flyer. It reads “we want more than visibility” on top, followed by “trans day of vengeance” and “stop trans genocide” as well as the date and time of the planned protest.)

— Democrats ever-increasingly a) run America and b) destroy those who do not promote transgenderism.

— Democrats say that “Candace Owens ‘Claims’ Affirmative Action Policies Are ‘Harmful’ To The People They ‘Purport’ To Help.” My critics/opponents promote Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, CRT, 1619, BLM, reparations, and/or wokeness/wokeism, that is, they promote political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.

— Democrats say “Trump vs DeSantis: Early 2024 salvos foreshadow unpredictable fight.”

— Democrats say “Reparations for Black Californians could top $800 billion.”

— Democrats say “Growing number of Chinese migrants seek asylum at U.S.-Mexico border.”

— Democrats say “Crossover voting in primaries in Wyoming is about to become more difficult.” How many crossover voters are there in your precinct? When I became a Republican Precinct Committeeman in 2000, I became aware of far too many voters who cast Republican primary ballots, but who then displayed yard signs for Democrat candidates in the following general elections.

— Democrats say “Activists Plan ‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ at Washington Days After Killings at Nashville Christian School. ‘We need to have a cultural ceasefire,’ one activist declares.”

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote Christie.

— Students Flee, but the Money Keeps Coming. An argument against educational choice falls apart when you follow where the funding goes. – Jeanne Allen (COMMENT: My parents saved Crete-Monee School District 201-U ( ) lots of money by their a) sending me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 and b) sending my brother to Trinity Lutheran 1958-1961 and then Hope Lutheran 1961-1968.)
— Accountants’ Salaries Are Rising, but It May Not Add Up to More Accountants. Firms hand recent graduates fatter offers and juicier opportunities with more responsibility, while also working to change perceptions, in a bid to boost ranks. “We can’t just buy ourselves out of getting more people to go into the CPA profession.” – Mark Maurer (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, I would have a) majored in accounting at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and b) taken and passed the CPA examination much sooner than I did. I passed the examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was 30 years old, but by then, because I am a White male, I was pegged as being much too old to have a successful career in accounting.)

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote illegal immigration.

— Democrats say that “Tucker Carlson made a controversial statement by asserting that transgender people are the “natural foe” of Christianity” and that he “claims that the trans movement seeks to claim dominion over nature and is, therefore, opposed to Christianity, which he believes celebrates the natural order.” My critics/opponents promote LGBTQ. I should write a book about them. I would focus on those who have taken the biggest adverse actions against me.

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote illegal immigration.
— Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs ever-increasingly use the Republican Party’s “BIG TENT” policy to destroy the Republican Party. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative.

— Gun-toting transgender woman who has become the face of the ‘Day of Vengeance’ organized by trans activists after Nashville massacre is ‘former SOLDIER’ Kayla Denker, who has become one of the most recognizable faces of militant transgender activists, is now believed to be a former soldier.
Shortly after the Nashville school shooting, which was carried out by a transgender attacker, Denker posted a TikTok of herself loading an assault rifle.
Denker’s video comes as trans activists are preparing to gather on April 1 for a ‘Day of Vengeance’ – planned before the shooting, but continuing regardless. – HARRIET ALEXANDER
