THE TRUTH ABOUT CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL MONUMENTS, FROM SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A POLITICIAN

Mitch Landrieu is nothing but a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

Here is the truth about Confederate memorial monuments, from someone who is not a politician:

The Reconstruction was nothing of the sort.  It was a brutal occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America, in which all citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America—of all races and ethnicities—were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years.

From 1865 to 1877, Southern women were raped, Southern men were murdered, and Southern families were displaced—on a constant basis—by Union troops and Union League terrorists.

Over 50,000 Southern civilians, of all races and ethnicities, died of exposure and starvation during the Civil War, and the Reconstruction—the Union occupation which followed the Civil War.

Needless to say, one of the constitutional rights which the Southern American people were denied during the Reconstruction was their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech. 

Because the United States won the war, Union citizens were immediately able to build memorial monuments to their war dead—and had enough money to do so.

But the citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were prohibited from building memorial monuments to their war dead, for twelve years, because they were denied their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech for twelve years.

Citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were only able to build monuments to their war dead after the Reconstruction ended in 1877.

Yet even then, they had to raise the money to build them—and this took decades.

This is why the overwhelming majority of Confederate memorial monuments were built in the late Nineteenth century and early Twentieth century.

And they were not built to pretend that the South had actually won the war, or to intimidate Black Southerners—many Black Southerners attended the ceremonies at which these memorial monuments to the Confederate war dead were presented.  Because the Confederate war dead included many Black Confederate soldiers and sailors who had proudly served the Confederate States of America, of their own free will.

The monuments were not Confederate-era monuments—because they were built after the United States of America defeated the Confederate States of America, and after the brutal Union occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America finally ended.

When Mitch Landrieu says he will replace the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis with an American flag—he knows very well that a flag of the Confederate States of America is just as much an American flag as a flag of the United States of America.

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and Mitch Landrieu knows this.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu did not call for the removal of four Confederate memorial monuments until June 24, 2015—the same day that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley censored all Confederate flags from Confederate memorial monuments on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol, and the same day that Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s historical flags displays.

And on June 22, 2015, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley called for the censorship of a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial monument on the grounds of the South Carolina State Capitol—in a speech in which she blamed a mass murder committed in Charleston, South Carolina, on a historical American flag in Columbia, South Carolina.

The overwhelming majority of the state and local politicians who are censoring their constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without their constituents’ consent, are actually Republicans—following the lead of Republican Nikki Haley.

And Democrats like Mitch Landrieu are simply riding this Republican bandwagon for the same reason Republican Nikki Haley got the bandwagon rolling, in the first place—it gives them a shot at the House of Representatives, the Senate, and even the Presidency.

The dismantled Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans must be restored, if possible.  And if this is not possible, they must be left in exactly the same state that Mitch Landrieu has left them, as a warning—to all people—of the politicians and their lies.

So what did you do to become the Democratic presidential nominee?

I took down four Confederate monuments.

So what did you do to become the Republican presidential nominee?

I took down a Confederate flag.

THE POSTHUMOUS EXTERMINATION OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA IS DESTRUCTIVE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA—AND IF YOU CARE AT ALL ABOUT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, YOU WILL DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO STOP THIS DESTRUCTION

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”

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

And when you do whatever you can to stop the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, you do something positive for the United States of America.

When you defend the Confederate States of America, of the past, you defend the United States of America, of the present.

When you stop politicians from censoring your historical American flags without your consent, you defend your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

And when you stop politicians from destroying your historical American monuments without your consent, you defend your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

I know that the late John F. Kennedy would have a problem with this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America—that he would see how destructive it is to the United States of America.

Because John F. Kennedy cared about history, civics, and personal responsibility.

And if you care at all about history, civics, and personal responsibility, you will stop this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.

If you care about America, you will save America from its own self-destruction.

You will stop every trend, tendency, and phenomenon that is destructive to the United States of America.

And this includes the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America—because it is destructive to the United States of America.

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and if you care at all about the United States of America, you will do whatever you can to stop this destruction.

RETURN OUR FIRST CONFEDERATE FLAG TO OUR FIVE FLAGS DISPLAYS—NOW

Escambia County Commissioner Doug Underhill,

You are nothing but a hypocrite in writing this:

“Good morning to all you marchers.  You are wrong.  My gun is not your problem, and my rights are not your business.  Your fears and your hate are a very real danger to our Constitution.  You are literally spending your Saturday demanding the government take away your rights.  Pathetic.”

On June 25, 2015, you gave in to this demand made by Escambia County Democratic Women’s Club President Dianne Krumel:

“I understand the flags are down, but I want to make it permanent.  I don’t want any chance of those flags going back up.”

You could have done the conservative thing, and voted to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays.

But you did the neocon thing, instead—just as Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, and Lumon May did.  You bowed to the demands of that one wannabe politician.

And you can bet that same wannabe politician was proudly exploiting those schoolchildren on March 24.  After all, you did nothing but encourage her.

You have no right to post about your rights.  Because you violated our First Amendment right to freedom of speech on June 25, 2015—along with Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, Lumon May, and especially Ashton Hayward.

I live just down the street from the Five Flags display in front of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course—and every time I leave my residence, I am reminded of your censorship of our First Confederate Flag, and every time I return to my residence, I am reminded of your censorship of our First Confederate Flag.  And I am tired of seeing this blatant violation of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Commissioner Underhill, you are despised in this county—along with Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, Jeff Bergosh, Lumon May, and Ashton Hayward.

Yet you now lead the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners, so you have more authority than ever before, to do the right thing.  You have more authority than ever before, to return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays.

You chose to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent—without even letting us Escambia County residents vote on it.

Our Five Flags Displays do not belong to you.  They belong to all of us Escambia County residents, of all races and ethnicities.  Our First Confederate Flag did not belong to you either.  It belonged to all of us Escambia County residents, of all races and ethnicities.  And you had no right to censor our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent—any more than Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, Lumon May, or Ashton Hayward did.  You have no right to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent—any more than Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Jeff Bergosh, Lumon May, or Ashton Hayward does.

Commissioner Underhill, you are a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar—just as Grover C. Robinson IV is, Steven Barry is, Wilson Robertson is, Jeff Bergosh is, Lumon May is, Ashton Hayward is, Malcolm Thomas is, David Morgan is, Mitch Landrieu is, LaToya Cantrell is, Marco Rubio is, Matt Gaetz is, Robert Bentley is, Kay Ivey is, Rick Scott is, Mike Signer is, Wes Bellamy is, Bob Corker is, Jerry Brown is, Chuck Schumer is, Maxine Waters is, Ajit Pai is, Donald Trump is, Hillary Clinton is, and especially that diabolical Nimrata Randhawa Haley is.

But you choose to be a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar—and you can choose not to be a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

You can return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays—now.

HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?

In the Twentieth Century, idealistic young people gathered in opposition to censorship.

In the Twenty-first Century, idealistic young people gather in support of censorship.

In the Twentieth Century, idealistic young people gathered in support of freedom of speech.

In the Twenty-first Century, idealistic young people gather in opposition to freedom of speech.

How is this happening?

BECAUSE HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF

150 years ago, the Republican Party was punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot—John Wilkes Booth.

And 150 years later, the Republican Party is punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot—Dylann Storm Roof.

Formed in 1854—not for the abolition of slavery, but for the creation of an American empire centered in the industrialized Northern region of the United States—the Republican Party, from the very beginning, was literally pledged against the South.

Now the Republican Party is pledged against the South, once again.

And just as it is time for Democratic voters all over the United States to abandon the Democratic Party, it is time for Republican voters all over the United States to abandon the Republican Party—especially in the South.

Because history is repeating itself.

LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS FLAG—AND TELL ME WHAT IT SHOWS

SHE IS A PANDERING, SELF-SERVING, SOCIOPATHIC LIAR

“RT@USUN: Today in observance of the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery we pay tribute to the over 10 million people who lost their lives and dignity at the hands of the slave trade…”

“I know you’re a strong supporter of the Second Amendment–is there anything about this situation that makes you think, ‘Okay, should we rethink–is it time for some kind of change?'”
“ANY TIME THERE IS A TRAUMATIC SITUATION, PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING TO BLAME–THEY ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING TO GO AFTER…”

“THE HATE-FILLED MURDERER WHO MASSACRED OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHARLESTON [SOUTH CAROLINA] HAS A SICK AND TWISTED VIEW OF [THE CONFEDERATE FLAG THAT FLIES ON THE STATEHOUSE GROUNDS IN COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA]”
“TODAY WE ARE HERE…TO SAY IT’S TIME TO MOVE THE FLAG…”

Nimrata Randhawa Haley pays no more tribute to the victims of the Transatlantic Slave Trade than she paid to the victims of the June 17, 2015, mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.

She is a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

52nd BIRTHDAY POST

As of 5:47 p.m. yesterday, I am 52 years old.

This was my second birthday since my sisters and brothers-in-law turned my parents against me on April 10, 2016.

And this was my first birthday without any hope of hearing from my father.

My sisters and brothers-in-law never told my father just what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

And he went to his grave thinking only the best of my sisters and brothers-in-law, and only the worst of me.

He went to his grave having taken my sisters’ and brothers-in-law’s word for everything, and my word for nothing.

And my sisters and brothers-in-law have never told my mother just what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

And she will likely go to her grave thinking only the best of my sisters and brothers-in-law, and only the worst of me.

She will likely go to her grave having taken my sisters’ and brothers-in-law’s word for everything, and my word for nothing.

Because my sisters and brothers-in-law will likely never tell my mother just what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

I cannot help but laugh softly as I realize how much this reads like a Faulknerian plot.

And William Faulkner’s novels are my favorite.

My sisters and brothers-in-law know nothing of literature, as they know nothing of the humanities—or of humanity.

Everything is going according to plan, for them—this is what they wanted.

They know what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

They are not my sisters and brothers-in-law—they have not been my sisters and brothers-in-law since April 10, 2016.

They are just the physical remains of my sisters and brothers-in-law—animated by wrath and greed.

I am a bitter, angry, old man at 52.

On June 22, 2015, Republican Nimrata Randhawa Haley perpetrated this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America—and this is ongoing.

On June 24, 2015, Republican Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from my city’s historical flags displays, without my consent—and this is ongoing.

On June 25, 2015, Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Republican Jeff Bergosh), and Democrat Lumon May chose to keep the First Confederate Flag censored from my city’s historical flags displays, without my consent—and this is ongoing.

On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled my vote, as a citizen of the State of Florida, null and void—and this is ongoing.

On April 10, 2016, my sisters and brothers-in-law began viciously lying to my parents, about me—and this is ongoing.

On March 11, 2017, my sisters and brothers-in-law began viciously lying to me, about my parents’ whereabouts—and this is ongoing.

I am a bitter, angry, old man at 52—primarily for the ongoing reasons listed above.

You would be too.
