— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Roger Ailes dies. I had the honor of leading a group that succeeded in 2002 in forcing Comcast to start carrying Fox News Channel in Wheaton and in other western suburbs. Fox News Channel employees in Chicago told me that Ailes was fully aware of my efforts and fully supported my efforts. Of course, to this day, members of the following groups in Wheaton vehemently hate me for bringing Fox News Channel to Wheaton on cable: anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.

They use everything that I say or do against me. They are not involved in Republican politics to defend or advance the Republican Party platform or to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance that platform. They are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, or RINOs. They talk and act like they agree with only one plank or maybe a few planks in the Republican Party platform and they focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate.)
