Petition to Bradley Schneider, Tammy Duckworth, Dick Durbin, Bruce Rauner, Rahm Emanuel, Terry Weppler


On behalf of the Bosnian Americans FB group (its 6000 members), Bosnian Organisations in the U.S.A. (signatories below), supporters of this petition, us as American citizens, we are reaching out to you seeking support, guidance, help, and action in removal of the monument of Draža Mihajlović in Libertyville, IL - symbol of hate, ethnic cleansing & genocide. We are pleading to the Libertyville’s own Mr. Terry L. Weppler (Mayor), Village Board Members (Johnson, Moras, Justice, Adams, Garity, Carey), IL Governor Mr. Bruce Rauner, honorable Congressman Bradley Scott Schneider (Illinois's 10th congressional district), honorable Senator Mr. Dick Durbin and honorable Senator Mrs. Duckworth, and any government authority compelled to help us take action for the immediate removal of the monument, the symbol of hate, reminiscent of recent Bosnian aggression, ethnic cleansing, and Genocide. Libertyville is located in south central Lake County, approximately 37 miles from Chicago and seven miles west of Lake Michigan. A community of about 22,000 inhabitants, enjoying the rich U.S. history and  traditions since 1830’s with the modern (music and arts) community and old town feel. Early settlers of Libertyville will certainly understand first Bosnian immigrants to Illinois... came with nothing, and build their livelihoods through hard work and determination. And it turned into a flourishing suburb of Chicago, where all ethnicities come together to build the fabric of American values. We feel that with the erection of the monument in 2009, that Libertyville tranquility is disturbed. It is out of place, and does not reflect Libertyville’s values. U.S.A. never was and will never be a country which encourages or celebrates hatred, fascism and nazism. Case of Draža Mihailović, as the founder and leader of the Četnik movement from Serbia, exemplifies that disturbing definition. “Četnik” (pronounced Chetnik) organisation he founded is a movement which should be named a terrorist organization, on grounds of committing Genocide & Ethnic Cleansing in Bosnia as 100 International Court cases have established; Milošević [3], Karadžić [4], Mladić [5], Plavšić [6], Hodžić [7], Lukić [8], and 103 other Serb convicted sentences. [9] In last two decades the Serbian government, who endorses and supports Četniks (since their inception), has their lobbyists deeply entrenched in U.S. politics, manipulating history and facts (uncontested by politicians, who do not know any better). Facts about WWI, WWII and recent Bosnian aggression from Serbia is established by U.S., E.U, and International courts of justices. Not only Bosnia experienced the worse of Četniks (paramilitary, far-right extremist of Serbian government), but all former Yugoslav republics; Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Kosovo. Only way they have been able to do it in middle of Europe, is their significant geo-political ally in their back... Russia. Russia is doing their betting in international affairs using their Veto powers at the U.N., in their own geopolitical military self-interest, and against all American assets, interests, and investments. Therefore this neo-fascist movement shall not exist. Serbian Government (as well as the Četnik movement) is still deeply denying the Srebrenica Genocide (despite numerous International court decisions), where 8000 Bosniak man, woman, children and elderly were killed based on their ethnicity. Systematic ethnic cleansing effort via State aggression was conducted throughout Bosnia, not just Srebrenica. “In April 1992 and under MILOSEVIC's leadership, Serbia led various military campaigns to unite ethnic Serbs in neighboring republics into a "Greater Serbia." - U.S. Central Intelligence Agency [10]. Since then hundred Serb generals and Serb politicians are either serving their sentences, or find themselves in Hague Tribunal today. All of them were part of the Četnik movement started by Draže Mihajlović, and to this day those War Criminals are still seen as heroes by Četniks. Mentality and moral equivalent only seen by Taliban and ISIS today. Unbeknownst to the local population of Libertyville, on September 7th 2009 their neighbourhood was chosen (under false pretenses) to display and glorify this European War Criminal, in turn his movement, which is responsible for deaths of 100,000, people in former Yugoslavia. On May 25th 1995 Serbs took U.N. Peacekeepers hostage, for which actions U.S. and 19 NATO allies retaliated with bombing for 3 months of the Serbian capital Belgrade. Now those videos serve as propaganda videos for Serb radicals on YouTube [11]. As President Clinton then announced in this video broadcast from the White House; “we have seen (in Bosnia) worse inhumanities of our lifetime.“ [12] Before today’s “ISIL” in the middle east, there was someone else known for chopping heads in Europe, in 1941 and ‘91 known as Četniks, as admitted by Aleksandar-Željko Knjeginjić just last week [43]. With this historical background, this monument is an embarrassment and humiliation to humanity, specifically Bosnian community who suffered enough through Genocide, and is still recovering from its losses, tragic and haunting events. This shall not stand, nor should it be acceptable in a country based on justice, freedom, and well-being of all citizens. “The effort to remove them is about more than symbolism. It’s about starting a conversation about the values and beliefs shared by a community. It’s about understanding our history as a nation. And it’s about acknowledging the injustices of the past as we address those of today.“- Southern Poverty Law Center. [13] Please, support our cause by signing this petition and raise your voice by contacting YOUR representatives (Congressman, Senators...). Don’t know who your representatives are? Click HERE. Also, advise your community leaders, political and prominent figures in your country, to support this effort, raise awareness, and demand the immediate removal of the statue of Draža Mihailović anywhere. A monster who is responsible for 100,000 deaths in Yugoslavia during the period between 1941 and 1945 (which includes U.S. allies), and demand to label his Četnik and “Ravnogorski Pokret” as Terrorist organisations. They are responsible for Bosniak Genocide and ethnic cleansing that resulted in displacement of over 1,300,000 people, deaths of 63,000 civilians just little over 2 decades ago, and proved to be guilty of Genocide by International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague. Giving Draža Mihajlović “Merit of Honor” award is like honoring Hitler with “Liberal Arts degree”, for his interest in painting… omitting the fact that he killed million Jews.  This hate shall not stand!

Get Animal Abuser Onision banned from YouTube and all Social Media Platforms

Onision, AKA Gregory Jackson Avaroe is violating the terms of service for You Tube and should have his account terminated immediately. Many YT advertisers will be contacted separately and asked for their thoughts on his actions and whether they condone being associated with a platform that allows users who are abusive to Youtube's Terms of Service, abusive towards other innocent youtubers, who files multiple fraudulent copyright claims, who mocks victims of terrorism (videos mocking 9/11 victims' deaths and negating the victims of Manchester) , who takes advantage of young teenagers' naivety and who demonstrates neglect and ill treatment towards his pets. Besides You Tube's TOS, Greg/Onision is apparently guilty of numerous State and Federal violations. Currently he is on a warpath trying to ruin the lives of multiple YouTubers. Such as Onision Just Ruined My Life   and ONISION IS TRYING TO BULLY ME Onision is self proclaimed Feminazi, who is infamous for rating very young women, some apparently underage on youtube. He is documented as mocking victims of rape as far back as 2012. YouTuber inflames viewers with rape comments Additionally, he bragged about chaining up his young girlfriend who lived with him and his wife. He claimed it was her choice, but may be a case of stockholm syndrome type abuse.  To make matters worse, he allegedly has defended the actions of at least one pedophile. Source: A vegetarian who apparently lets his pets die horribly and seems to terrorizes them while they're alive. Greg let his tortoise bake to death trapped under plastic tupperware in the noon day sun. Onision let rare turtle BAKE to death Sick dude. We want Onison banned off Youtube.  There are comments on there from a recent video about Greg. They reveal how Greg uploaded a video titled Fun with Fireworks a few days ago. He is seen shaking his guinea pig very fast and also holding up his scared looking dog. There are also tweets showing the screencaps from the video. And his history of being a horrible abuser goes way back: 38:00-ish mark Former classmate talks about how Greg let two of his pets die of malnourishment. Animal abusers are always abusers of all animals, humans included. Greg is a textbook malignant narcissist who is a danger to himself online and IRL. Please ban this degenerate who flagrantly abuses You Tube Creator TOS with impunity.

Petition to United States Congress

Designate Neo-Nazis / Alt Right As Terror Organizations

Take away free speech laws from AltRight / Neo-Nazis - stop incitement - enable FBI to arrest criminals. As you read this petition, American Nazis / Alt Right are terrorizing Jewish families and their friends in Whitefish, Montana. They have threatened to bring automatic weapons to a planned march.  The city of Whitefish argues that they will have to allow these racist Nazi thugs into their town based on "free speech".Incitement to murder and or harm Jews and other minorities is not free speech.The Jewish families of Whitefish and the businesses that they are associated with have all been targeted online with death threats.  Nazi / Alt Right terrorism is not limited to Montana. In January and February 2017, Jewish Centers across the country were targeted with bomb threats. Hundreds of Jewish graves destroyed.  More than 150 Neo-Nazis and white supremacists, many of them armed, staged a rally in April in a Kentucky county that voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump. Benjamin McDowell, 29, was arrested by FBI agents after he purchased a gun from an undercover agent in South Carolina, McDowell planned a massive terror attack on a synagogue. Charlottesville - Nazis proudly walked the streets fully armed with automatic weapons. They chanted "We will not be replaced by the Jew" meaning - we want all Jews dead. Heather Heyer who was peacefully protesting the Nazis was murdered after a Nazi used his car as a weapon, taking terror tips from ISIS and the Palestinians.Have we not learned anything about Nazis?Have we forgotten the brutal history of the Nazi Party - 11 million murdered in World War Two as the result of racist hate?The Nazis of 2017 have the same agenda as the Nazis of 1938.In addition, the Nazis of 2017 have aligned themselves with the Hamas Islamic terror organization (Jihad) to achieve their global and domestic goals. We recognize that many did not live through nor experience the original Nazi genocidal era. So we ask you to think of the evil of ISIS and the efforts that modern Nazis are making to associate with them and Hamas. We are taking this action as the United Kingdom has recently declared the Neo-Nazi, anti-semitic group "National Action" as a terror organization under the Terrorism Act 2000. It is now a criminal offense to recruit for, be a member of or in any way support a Neo-Nazi group including displaying Nazi or Nazi supporting flags, posters or banners. We are taking this action as SPLC on behalf of Jewish Montana resident Tanya Gersh and her family file charges relating to death threats, criminal harassment against the editor of the largest hate publication in the USA - the Nazi online site The Daily Stormer. See: We kindly request of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate to designate the American Nazi Party AKA National Socialist White People's Party aka National Policy Institute as terror organizations. This present and clear danger to the welfare, protection and safety of American citizens needs to be addressed without delay. PLEASE SHARE: /

No Nazi Threats Law: US Legislation to Outlaw Nazi Symbols

  No Nazi Threats Law: Proposal to Outlaw the Display of Nazi / Neo-Nazi Symbols in the United States of America   We propose Nazi and Neo Nazi Symbols, Greetings and Slogans, and Nazi Tattoos on Individuals be outlawed because they constitute literal criminal threats of violence towards the public. Nazi and Neo-Nazi symbols in particular pose a genuine and literal criminal threat of violence towards the general public, including people of color / minorities, immigrants, Jewish, Muslim, LGBT and transgender persons.  The government of the United States of America has a responsibility to its citizens to protect them from criminal threats.  Just as Germany, France and other countries have enacted laws to protect citizens from the hate-based threats and violence stemming from Nazi and Neo-Nazi rhetoric, and indeed to protect citizens from a resurgence of such Evil, we the people of the United States of America raise our collective voice to denounce the vile Nazi and Neo-Nazis. We proclaim the hateful beliefs of Nazis and Neo-Nazis to be wholly and forever incompatible with the ideals of inalienable rights, civil and human rights, and equal justice for all established in our nation. We demand federal and state laws be enacted to further protect the peaceful public from this insidious and evil doctrine. The display of Nazi or Neo-Nazi symbols shall be regarded as a generalized criminal threat towards the public, as these symbols are universally recognized to denote hate and a willingness to harm others. Penalties and Prosecution should rightly follow as with other statutes concerning criminal threats of violence. In the Second World War, some 416,800 American souls died fighting the evil of the Nazis.  Millions of people died to defeat the evil of the Nazis. We must honor their lives and their sacrifice by maintaining their hard-won victory. - United States Holocaust Memorial Museum - The National WWII Museum The Holocaust was a genocide in which some six million European Jews were killed by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany, and the World War II collaborators with the Nazis. The victims included 1.5 million children, and constituted about two-thirds of the nine million Jews who had previously resided in Continental Europe. A broader definition of the Holocaust includes non-Jewish victims, such as the Romani, Poles, members of other Slavic ethnic groups, and Aktion T4 patients who were killed because they were mentally and physically disabled. An even broader definition includes Soviet citizens, prisoners of war, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, blacks, political opponents of the Nazis, and members of other smaller groups. From 1941 to 1945, Jews were systematically murdered in a genocide, which was part of a larger event that included the persecution and murder of other peoples in Europe. Under the coordination of the SS, with directions from the highest leadership of the Nazi Party, every arm of Germany's bureaucracy was involved in both the logistics and the carrying out of the mass murder. Killings were committed throughout German-occupied Europe, as well as within Nazi Germany itself, and they were also committed across all territories controlled by its allies. Other victims of Nazi crimes included ethnic Poles, Ukrainians, and other Slavs; Soviet citizens and Soviet POWs; communists; homosexuals; Jehovah's Witnesses; and others. Some 42,500 detention facilities were utilized in the concentration of victims for the purpose of committing gross violations of human rights. Over 200,000 people are estimated to have been Holocaust perpetrators. The persecution was carried out in stages, culminating in the policy of extermination which was termed the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question". Following Hitler's rise to power, the German government passed laws to exclude Jews from civil society, most prominently the Nuremberg Laws of 1935. Starting in 1933 the Nazis began to establish a network of concentration camps. After the outbreak of war in 1939 both German and foreign Jews were herded into wartime ghettos. In 1941, as Germany began to conquer new territory in the East, all anti-Jewish measures radicalized. Specialized paramilitary units called Einsatzgruppen murdered around two million Jews in mass shootings in less than a year. By mid-1942, victims were regularly being transported by freight trainsto extermination camps. Most who survived the journey were systematically killed in gas chambers. This continued until the end of World War II in Europe in April–May 1945.
