During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece. What if I had pretended to be Swedish? My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes demonize, denigrate, and condemn people of German national origin. I should write a book about those of the aforesaid who are of German national origin themselves, but who demonize, denigrate, and condemn people of German national origin to curry favor with those who are anti-German American.)
