HOW GODLESS THIS GODDAMNED DIGITAL AGE IS

Dylann Roof’s massacre of nine members of the congregation of Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17, 2015, has been called a tragedy—and it certainly was.

Yet the mindlessly destructive events that have occurred—and are still occurring—in the wake of that tragedy are even more tragic.

Almost no one even knew who Dylann Roof was, until he was charged with that massacre—and proudly confessed to it.

As soon as anyone knew he had a personal website—a blog—everyone attempted to see it.

His personal website—his blog—The Last Rhodesian, was pulled from the Internet—but not before countless photographs from that site were distributed on social media, particularly Facebook and Twitter.

There was only one Confederate flag featured in a few of those photographs—a cheap, souvenir-sized Confederate battle flag that Dylann Roof didn’t even have on his person when he committed that vicious crime.

Yet millions of mindless, Digital-Age smartphone addicts went berserk when they saw that souvenir-sized battle flag—and gave Republican Nikki Haley an easy way out of examining the gun laws in the state of which she was governor.

Hundreds of almost exclusively White, young protesters showed up on the grounds of the South Carolina Capitol in Columbia, South Carolina—protesting something of which they had no understanding, whatsoever.

At the time, no one even knew what had incited all these mindless, Digital-Age protesters—all from privileged backgrounds—in the first place.

It was a Twitter post: #TakeDowntheFlag (Hashtag: Take Down the Flag!). It was immediately after this mindless Digital-Age scene that Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley made a speech in which she blamed a mass murder in Charleston, South Carolina, on a historical flag in Columbia, South Carolina.

This is why I choose not to have a cellphone or smartphone.

This is why I choose not to have a Facebook or Twitter account.

This is why I choose to limit the Digital-Age technology in my life.

What’s especially sad is that I would have to murder nine people in a place of worship before you would even read this post.

Or I would have to exploit the murder of nine people in a place of worship—for my own political career—before you would even read this post.

That’s how shallow this Goddamned Digital Age is.

That’s how mindless this Goddamned Digital Age is.

That’s how tragic this Goddamned Digital Age is.

And that’s how godless this Goddamned Digital Age is.

TWO QUOTES TO CONSIDER

“The man who believes that he has free will is more easily controlled since he will never think to look for the chains.”

“The jews are a problem—not our ONLY or SOLE problem, not responsible for EVERY problem faced by gentiles, not some ALL-POWERFUL race that we shouldn’t bother trying to resist, not an EXCUSE for avoiding responsibility for problems of our own making—but nonetheless, A REAL, SERIOUS PROBLEM.”

THE POSTHUMOUS EXTERMINATION OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA IS DESTRUCTIVE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Not only was the Third Confederate Flag censored from the historical flags displays of my hometown of Mobile, Alabama—without the consent of Mobilians—it was also censored from the city seal of my hometown of Mobile, Alabama (along with all other historical flags)—without the consent of Mobilians.

How bare it looks now!

And how ridiculous—especially since my hometown was founded by the French—seventy-four years before the United States even existed!

Before this madness began on June 22, 2015, I only wanted to return to my hometown of Mobile, Alabama.

Now I cannot even return to my hometown without encountering the same massacre of history I encounter daily in Pensacola, Florida!

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America!

THIS IS NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK

Over 200 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the United American Flag.

Over 150 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the United American Flag.

Over 150 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the First Confederate American Flag.

Over 150 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the Second Confederate American Flag.

Over 150 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the Third Confederate American Flag.

Over 150 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the Confederate American Battle Flag of the Army of Tennessee.

And over 150 years ago, Americans risked and lost their lives for the Confederate American Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.

Since June 22, 2015, the Confederate American Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia has been censored—without your consent.

Since June 22, 2015, the Confederate American Battle Flag of the Army of Tennessee has been censored—without your consent.

Since June 22, 2015, the Third Confederate American Flag has been censored—without your consent.

Since June 22, 2015, the Second Confederate American Flag has been censored—without your consent.

And since June 22, 2015, the First Confederate American Flag has been censored—without your consent.

You don’t have to risk or lose your lives for these five historical American flags that have been censored without your consent—at least not yet.

You only have to resist this state-and-local-government-imposed-censorship. 

You only have to remind the state and local politicians, who have been censoring these five historical American flags without your consent, since June 22, 2015, that these five historical American flags belong to you—not them.

And you only have to remind the state and local politicians, who have been destroying all historical Confederate American memorial monuments without your consent, since June 22, 2015, that all these historical Confederate American memorial monuments belong to you—not them.

This is all I ask of you.

And this is not too much to ask.

LIBERAL HISTORIANS, TAKE NOTE

It is hypocritical to praise Republican President Abraham Lincoln’s overturning of decisions made by Democratic President James Buchanan, when you condemn Republican President Donald Trump’s overturning of decisions made by Democratic President Barack Obama.

IF YOU DON’T REALIZE THIS NOW, YOU’D BETTER REALIZE IT SOON

You blame Trump for everything, and excuse Nikki Haley.

You excuse Trump for everything, and ignore Nikki Haley.

Either way, you lose when Nikki Haley becomes the next elected president of the United States.

Either way, you lose when Nikki Haley triggers a global thermonuclear annihilation that vaporizes you into nonexistence—if you’re one of the lucky ones. 

Nikki Haley is smarter than you think.

Nikki Haley is more dangerous than you think.

Forget Trump, for a moment—and focus on Nikki Haley.

You have no reason to worry about Trump—you have every reason to worry about Nikki Haley.

Nikki Haley is the most dangerous politician in the United States today.

If you don’t realize this now, you’d better realize it soon.

“OUR MONUMENTS REPRESENT ALL WE’VE DONE AND HOW FAR WE’VE COME!”

Freedom to embrace all monuments

“‘Throw it away,’ says the mayor.  ‘Let it be,’ says this twice-awarded Purple Heart, Mustang Marine, who fought for freedom and country!  I graduated from the ‘old’ Pensacola High School (Class of 1948).  It was located across the street from Lee Square.  Pensacola is ‘America’s First City’ and Palafox Street is one of the ‘Ten Best Streets in America.’  How is the removal of this heritage monument going to affect the city’s reputation?  This monument stands in honor of fallen men and women who fought for their cause.  It will be starting a dangerous precedent, because this madness could start a tidal wave washing down Palafox and washing over to the Wall South, removing all our monuments! 

“We need to remember this great country was founded on diversity and our monuments represent all we’ve done and how far we’ve come!  Let’s look forward and embrace our freedom to have all monuments, not just a few chosen ones.  Now is the time for sensible leadership to demand the mayor and all the council to stop this reckless behavior!”
