GUESTVIEW

Escambia County (Florida) Commissioner Doug Underhill is 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, he 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.”

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

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

And he can bet that same wannabe politician was gleefully exploiting those schoolchildren on March 24, 2018.  After all, he did nothing but encourage her.

He has no right to post about his rights.  Because he violated our First Amendment right to freedom of speech on June 25, 2015, just as Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, and Lumon May did—and just as Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward did, on June 24, 2015.

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

Escambia County Commissioner Doug Underhill is 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, Nancy Pelosi is, Maxine Waters is, Dianne Feinstein is, Elizabeth Warren is, Tim Scott is, Ajit Pai is, Donald Trump is, Hillary Clinton is, and especially that diabolical Nimrata Randhawa Haley is.

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

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

Scott Wesley Mayo is a resident of Escambia County, Florida, and a native of Mobile, Alabama. He is also a proud descendant of Confederate veterans and U.S. veterans alike, a proud independent American voter since 2003, a proud Ross Perot voter in the 1992 U.S. Presidential Election, and a proud American who is doing everything he can to prevent his country’s self-destruction.  And Scott Wesley Mayo believes that the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.  Scott Wesley Mayo is the administrator of the blog, Solosocial, whose website is solosocial.wordpress.com.

    This is the first email I’ve received from you, Lisa (Nellessen Savage).

    This piece about Doug Underhill’s hypocrisy is not a letter to the editor—it’s a viewpoint submission (“Guest View”).

    I have submitted three letters to the editor, and you’ve published one of them.

    But this one Ginny Hollingsworth invited me to revise, and submit as a viewpoint submission, months ago (at first, it was simply an email I sent directly to Doug Underhill—addressed to him—then forwarded to Ginny Hollingsworth, as I recall).

    Thank you,

    Scott Mayo

    That could very well be the case, Lisa—my pastor in Mobile said he sent me an email a while back, and I never received it.

    In that case, I apologize for assuming you were ignoring me—I was obviously mistaken.

    Lisa, I don’t think this viewpoint submission could be cut to 250 words, and make any sense at all—Doug Underhill’s tweet alone is 49 words.

    But your guidelines for a Guestview, in my view, fit this submission perfectly. I have a tremendous amount of author expertise on this subject—possibly more than anyone else in the Greater Pensacola area. And this author expertise is evident on my blog, Solosocial, in which I’ve been reporting my findings on this local-government censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags displays since June 24, 2015. I also have a tremendous amount of experience on this topic—I live just down the street from the Five Flags display in front of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course, so I notice everything that happens with our Five Flags displays—I cannot help but notice it. I moved here from Mobile, Alabama, in 1998, to my late paternal grandparents’ house. And I was here in 2000, when the local politicians replaced the Confederate Battle Flag in our Five Flags Displays with the First Confederate Flag. And nobody had a problem with the First Confederate Flag—apparently nobody even urged Mayor Ashton Hayward to censor this flag on June 24, 2015, though Dianne Krumel demanded that the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners keep it censored on June 25, 2015. And it’s still censored. The First Confederate Flag is the one that looks so much like the flag of the United States—in fact, it was the reason the Confederate Battle Flag was designed, in the first place. It looked so much like the Flag of the United States that it caused confusion on the battlefield at the Battle of First Manassas, and Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard commissioned a battle flag to be designed strictly for battlefield use. Lisa, I’ve been wearing T-shirts with this First Confederate Flag on them since this censorship started on June 24, 2015—and almost no Pensacolians ever even recognize it. So chalk up another point for expertise—though I have a BA in English/creative writing, I have no history degree, yet I have been literally forced to study more history than ever in my life since these six local politicians (seven, counting Wilson Robertson) have censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays. And as for solution-driven topics, my Guestview submission has that too: “He can return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays—now.” Doug Underhill can return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays—now. He may have to get the approval of his cronies on the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners—but he should have no problem doing that, since Grover C. Robinson IV is a Republican, just like him, Steven Barry is a Republican, just like him, Jeff Bergosh is a Republican, just like him, Wilson Robertson was a Republican, just like him—and Ashton Hayward is a Republican, just like him. Lisa, are you aware that this is a Republican thing? Republican Nikki Haley started this mass censorship on June 22, 2015—and the overwhelming majority of the state and local politicians who have been censoring their constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without their constituents’ consent, since June 22, 2015, have actually been Republicans. Lisa, the Republican Party was not the party of states’ rights, when it was established in 1854—it was the party of total federal rights. Its purpose was never to abolish slavery—it couldn’t care less about slavery—its purpose was to create an American empire centered in the industrialized Northern region of the United States. It was not until the early 1960s—November 22, 1963, specifically—that the Republican Party shifted its platform to one of states’ rights. And this was only in response to the Democratic Party’s shifting of its platform from one of states’ rights to one of federal domination. But the neoconservatives—neocons—have completely returned the Republican Party to its original imperialistic, totalitarian platform, as of June 22, 2015. Nikki Haley is a neocon—and so is Ashton Hayward, Doug Underhill, Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Jeff Bergosh, and Wilson Robertson.

    This is a political game, Lisa—a political game played by both the Democratic and Republican parties, at the expense of the American people.

    I understand that your newspaper is beholding to Gannett—I understand that probably at least ninety percent of U.S. newspapers are controlled by huge media corporations now, and have to pay homage to these huge media corporations that own them, at the expense of their readers.

    But I also see that these huge media corporations still allow their newspapers to occasionally fulfill their constitutional roles as the people’s watchdogs over our government—at the federal, state, and local levels—and that this is especially allowed in editorials.

    Lisa, my minor was communication arts—and I almost graduated with a dual degree. I even had a year of graduate school.

    As for my photograph—you can use the photograph of the First Confederate Flag instead of me, if you feel that is more relevant to my Guestview. And if you cannot publish my entire biography, you can select just one item from it, that you feel best represents my expertise to your readers. If you use the line, “Scott Wesley Mayo is the administrator of the blog, Solosocial, whose website is solosocial.wordpress.com,” that gives your readers ample opportunity to examine all of the information I have to share on this topic, and evaluate the level of my expertise, for themselves.

    The choice is yours, Lisa, and I respect your decision. But I would really appreciate your giving me a chance here—or better still, giving my Guestview submission a chance.

    I am positive that your readers will be very interested in the information I have to present here—and appreciative that someone has pointed this out to them. Because most Escambia County residents have no idea what the First Confederate Flag is, even when they see it, and no idea that this historical flag has been censored from their historical flags displays—without their consent—since June 24, 2015.

    This is a local-government coverup, Lisa—a local-government Watergate.

    Wouldn’t you like to be the newspaper editor who enables a local Woodward-Bernstein to expose a local-government Watergate?

    Thanks,

    Scott Mayo

    Andy Marlette has written an editorial condemning the censorship of political cartoons.

    But he supports the censorship of Confederate flags and monuments.

    How does he expect us to take his condemnation of censorship seriously if he supports censorship?

    When I was in my twenties, I protested a proposal to censor the sale of softcore pornographic magazines to adults.

    Now I protest the censorship of Confederate flags and monuments.

    When I was in my twenties, I protested censorship by politicians at the demands of religious conservatives.

    Now I protest censorship by politicians at the demands of secular liberals.

    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?

    That is a rhetorical question—Andy Marlette knows how it is happening.

    He has shown, through his words and pictures, his support for government-imposed censorship of Confederate flags and monuments—censorship by state and local politicians of their constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without their constituents’ consent.

    The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America because it is government-imposed censorship. It is government without the consent of the governed.

    Andy Marlette needs to understand this—and so does every other citizen of the United States of America.

    P.S. I would still appreciate it if you would give my Guestview submission a chance, Lisa. I have shown you that it meets the qualifications.

  4. 4 solosocial June 20, 2018 at 6:33 am

    You’re not listening to me, Lisa.

    Dianne Krumel is the Escambia County Democratic Women’s Club president. Dianne Krumel is certainly an expert on politics, but she is by no means an expert on history, civics, or personal responsibility.

    I am. I am an expert on history, civics, and personal responsibility—and I have proven this to you.

    And though I am not an official spokesperson, I am a spokesperson on a topic I have “dedicated many years to studying, educating and advocating.”

    Therefore, I am a “subject expert” on this topic—and you know this.

    Your editorial editor, Virginia Hollingsworth, replied to an email I had sent to Doug Underhill, and forwarded to her—with an invitation to revise the text of that email according to the guidelines for a Guestview submission. And I did that.

    You have stated that Virginia Hollingsworth is no longer the editorial editor there.

    But Lisa, in my mind, you have a moral responsibility to keep an unwritten promise that she essentially made to me.

    Your editorial editor essentially made an unwritten promise to me that if I revised my email to Doug Underhill to meet the specifications for a Guestview submission, that Guestview submission would be published.

    And I did that.

    And my Guestview submission meets the criteria for your Guestviews.

    And I meet the criteria for your Guestview contributors—and I have shown you this.

    If you need more proof of my qualifications for authorship of my Guestview submission, I invite you to thoroughly review my blog, Solosocial, at solosocial.wordpress.com. I’ve even recently posted this Guestview submission on my blog, complete with my replies to your emails—added as comments—to provide further information for my readers.

    I cannot emphasize enough, Lisa, that you have power, influence, and a reasonable amount of wealth, in your position as editor-in-chief of the Pensacola News Journal—and I have none of these.

    But I do have a great deal of knowledge that I am willing to share with the people of Escambia County, Florida, at no charge—and absolutely no risk to you, or to your position.

    You have absolutely nothing to lose in publishing my Guestview editorial on Doug Underhill’s hypocrisy; this ongoing government-imposed censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays; the corruption of the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners and Pensacola Mayor; and history, civics, and personal responsibility—and a great deal to gain, from your readers.

    Even my thoughtful, informed, sincere emails to you prove my qualifications—if I may say so.

    I have told you, my Guestview submission cannot be cut to 250 words, and make any sense at all—Doug Underhill’s tweet alone is 49 words.

    Virginia Hollingsworth invited me to revise my email to Doug Underhill for publication as a Guestview in the Pensacola News Journal—and I did that.

    Now you are telling me my Guestview submission is not suitable for publication in the Pensacola News Journal because I am not qualified to write it—even though I have already written it.

    Do you see the lack of logic in your dismissal of me, and of my writing?

    I believe you are capable of honor and courage, Lisa Nellessen Savage, and I’m asking you to bring forth that honor and courage, and publish my Guestview submission.

    You know I am qualified to submit my Guestview—and you know my Guestview submission is qualified to be published in the Pensacola News Journal.

    Yours sincerely,

    Scott Wesley Mayo

    P.S. Lisa, I would appreciate it if you would publish my Guestview, in its entirety.

    In response to Amy Miller’s Guestview, “Scant showing of female candidates in Escambia County disappointing,” she probably voted against Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries.

    Too many American women are sexist—they want women to have political power, but they don’t care what kind of women have it.

    Millions of women protested Trump’s inauguration.

    Yet if those millions of women would have voted for Bernie Sanders, in the Democratic primaries, they could have prevented what they were protesting.

    Because of their sexism, they voted against the only Democratic candidate who could have defeated Donald Trump in the general election of 2016.

    And because of their sexism, Nimrata Randhawa (“Nikki”) Haley could be the first female president of the United States.

    Nikki Haley is a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar who is far more evil than Donald Trump—and is every bit as evil as Hillary Clinton, yet far more ambitious and clever.

    Women’s sexism put Donald Trump in office—and women’s sexism has lined up the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley to possibly succeed Trump.

    And if Nimrata Randhawa Haley becomes President, there will not even be a United States of America once that diabolical woman is finished with it.

    Women’s sexism is the reason there is such a scant showing of female candidates in Escambia County, and women’s sexism is the reason Donald Trump is President of the United States.

    In response to Quint Studer’s Guestview, “Celebrate your community on Independence Day,” the last Independence Day I had any reason to celebrate anything was that of 2014.

    On June 24, 2015, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent.

    On June 25, 2015, Escambia County Commissioners Doug Underhill, Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Jeff Bergosh), and Lumon May chose to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent.

    Our First Confederate Flag remains censored from our Five Flags Displays—without our consent. We have never even been allowed to vote on it.

    And speaking of votes, on June 26, 2015, in the Obergefell v. Hodges decision, my vote, as a citizen of Florida, was made null and void by my federal government.

    This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and so is this nullification of the votes of untold millions of U.S. citizens, including me, that is the Obergefell v. Hodges decision.

    Neither this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, nor this federally enforced redefinition of marriage as a union between members of the same sex, is anything in keeping with what America’s Founding Fathers had in mind for the country for which they gave their all.

    Roe v. Wade must be overturned because it is murdering children, and because it is infringing on the rights of the citizens of our states.

    Obergefell v. Hodges must be overturned because it is damaging children’s minds by completely confusing them about sexuality, and because it is infringing on the rights of the citizens of our states.

    Our federal government’s support of the Zionist State of Israel must be stopped because it is diverting billions of our tax dollars, every year, to maintain a genocidal, foreign regime that was illegally established over seventy years ago.

    Our American corporations’ outsourcing of our American service and manufacturing jobs to foreign countries must be stopped because it is treason, and because it is destroying our economy, and making us Americans jobless, penniless, and homeless.

    This “Global War on Terrorism” must be stopped because it is misusing and abusing our American troops.

    This state and local government-imposed censorship of our Confederate flags and monuments must be stopped because Confederate history is American history. The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.

    The censored Confederate flags and monuments must go back up, the cell towers must come down, and every effort must be made to provide free landline telephone service to all Americans, including free public landline telephones distributed as widely as possible.

    On June 22, 2015, South Carolina Governor Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley called for the censorship of a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial monument on the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse—in a speech in which she blamed a mass murder in Charleston, South Carolina, on a historical American flag in Columbia, South Carolina.

    On June 24, 2015, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu called for the censorship of four Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans.

    Also on June 24, 2015, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley censored all Confederate flags from Confederate memorial monuments on the grounds of the Alabama Statehouse.

    And also on June 24, 2015, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.

    On June 25, 2015, all five county commissioners on the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners chose to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays.

    Our First Confederate Flag is still censored from our Five Flags Displays—without our consent.

    We were never even allowed to vote on this.

    The Confederate States is an integral part of the history of the United States—thus the Confederate States is an integral part of the historical identity of the United States, which the United States cannot do without.

    In response to the editorial, “As Pensacola raises the bar, so must next mayor,” here is another area in which the mayor has proven less focused and more damaging to the city: our Five Flags Displays.

    Since June 24, 2015, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners have censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.

    This is an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech because they have done this without our consent—without even letting us vote on it.

    It is also downright ridiculous, given the slaving history of Spain, France, Britain, the United States, and the State of Florida.

    The State Flag of Florida, with which Mayor Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners have replaced our First Confederate Flag, represents a slave state that was founded in 1845—only after countless Native Americans had been displaced and slaughtered in the processes of the Indian Removal Act and the Seminole Indian Wars.

    In fact, when we take into account what was done to Native Americans and African Americans in Pensacola’s past, Mayor Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners have censored the flag of the least offending nation—or state—of them all, by censoring our First Confederate Flag.

    It is imperative that Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays—now.

    Since June 22, 2015, state and local politicians have been censoring their constituents’ historical flags and monuments. This is government-imposed censorship—government without the consent of the governed. And this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.

    I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org.

    The first petitions President Trump to remove Nikki Haley from his cabinet—because Nikki Haley initiated this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley exploited a mass murder for her political career.

    The second petitions Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five Flags Displays.

    I wonder what selections are in the garbage can of BANNED BOOKS in Andy Marlette’s August 10 FLORIDA PUBLIC SCHOOLS parody.

    Surely there are the banned standards of religious conservatives in that can, such as The Catcher in the Rye.

    Yet in any garbage can of censored books there are also the banned standards of secular liberals. Some of these may be frowned on by religious conservatives as well, such as Mein Kampf and Lolita.

    But far more are the books only secular liberals love to censor. These include Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird, and any book written by William Faulkner.

    They also include any books that counter 153-year-old Unionist propaganda demonizing the Confederate States and the American South.

    And secular liberals are following such banned books with banned Confederate flags and monuments, banned names of Confederate leaders, and even banned episodes of The Dukes of Hazzard.

    Yet it’s all the same, isn’t it?

    Censorship is censorship, isn’t it?

    Whether censorship is done at the demands of religious conservatives or secular liberals, it’s still censorship.

    And though censorship is championed only by some of us, it hurts all of us.

    Let’s stop this posthumous extermination of the Confederation States of America.

    Let’s stop this purge of American history, before America itself is purged.

    Let’s stop the censorship, before it’s too late for any of us.

    In his editorial, “Pensacola election sends in the clowns, crooks and cuckoos,” Andy Marlette describes our Confederate Memorial Monument as “downtown’s confederate monument that famously features a young, effeminate boy standing awkwardly on top of an obelisk.”

    This is not the first time Andy Marlette has insulted our Confederate Memorial Monument. Andy Marlette insults anything representative of the historical Confederate States of America, though he knows nothing about the historical Confederate States of America.

    Andy Marlette is ignorant of American history, and very proud of his ignorance.

    Andy Marlette is also hypocritical; for he often writes and illustrates about the dangers of censorship, yet completely supports the censorship of Confederate flags and monuments.

    By insulting our Confederate Memorial Monument, and supporting the censorship of anything representative of the historical Confederate States of America, Andy Marlette is only alienating us readers and viewers of the Pensacola News Journal.

    Regarding Doug Underhill’s recent primary win, local issues do not “trump polls, partisanship and campaign cash.”

    Of the politicians who’ve censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, Escambia County Commissioner Doug Underhill is the only one I’ve ever had the displeasure of meeting.

    At a neighborhood meeting last year, I asked Underhill why he and his associates never held a meeting with us Escambia County residents before censoring our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.

    “We’re not going to talk about that flag,” he snapped.

    And Underhill invited us to contact him any time, about any issue, “except that flag.”

    After the meeting, I started to ask him if he ever received the letter I had mailed him about the censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, but he cut me off.

    “You don’t even know what I was going to ask you,” I said, as Underhill practically ran to his truck to evade my question.

    Along with Ashton Hayward, Grover C. Robinson IV, Wilson Robertson, Steven Barry, Lumon May, and Jeff Bergosh, Doug Underhill has censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent, since June 24, 2015.

    And Underhill has never responded to any of my communications about his and his cronies’ censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.

    It is for these reasons, more than any others, that I intend to vote against Doug Underhill this November.

    “For an [sic] mayor surely looking toward his lasting legacy, it’s a smart, forward-thinking move for Hayward to push pause and allow Studer’s team time to bring the public a comprehensive proposal for Maritime Park before he leaves office. It doesn’t cost the city a thing. And it doesn’t set anything in stone. But it gives citizens an [sic] chance to have one of the most talented development teams in the Southeast offer the public a vision of what our waterfront could become.”

    For a mayor surely looking toward his lasting legacy, it would also be a smart, forward-thinking move for Hayward to return our First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays—given that he and his cronies on the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners have censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent, since June 24, 2015.

    Our First Confederate Flag must be returned to its rightful place in our Five Flags displays—now.

    On July 29, 2015, Monica Miller, of the American Humanist Association, emailed a thirteen-page letter to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, City Attorney Lysia Bowling, and City of Pensacola Parks & Recreation Director Brian Cooper, demanding that a historical cross be censored from Bayview Park immediately, and threatening legal action if it wasn’t. She emailed a copy of this letter to the East Hill Neighborhood Association.

    On June 24, 2015, Mayor Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s Five Flags Displays. He did this without the consent of his constituents.

    On June 25, 2015, all five Escambia County commissioners—Doug Underhill, Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Jeff Bergosh), and Lumon May—chose to keep the First Confederate Flag censored from Pensacola’s Five Flags Displays. They did this without the consent of their constituents.

    On July 29, 2015, our Bayview Park Cross was targeted for censorship because our First Confederate Flag had been censored from our Five Flags Displays, just over a month before, and not enough of us knew or cared.

    Now our Bayview Park Cross is scheduled for censorship because our First Confederate Flag has been censored from our Five Flags Displays, for over three years, and not enough of us know or care.

    If enough of us know and care enough to force our elected leaders to return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays, we can potentially prevent the censorship of our Bayview Park Cross.

    In response to Mike Huckabee’s editorial, “Cartoonist gives fake news on beach law,” I consider both Huckabee and Andy Marlette to be both right and wrong.

    Marlette probably singled out Huckabee, among all the private beach owners in Walton County, because rich, famous, politically-connected Huckabee came all the way over here, from a landlocked state, only to make a section of our beachline his own—then complain about our use of our beaches.

    I recently contacted Huckabee about his fervent Zionism, and informed him that Zionism, and the Zionist State of Israel, were in total opposition to the teachings of Jesus (it bothered me that a professed minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ was an unabashed Zionist).

    Huckabee never responded.

    I have also contacted Andy Marlette about his hypocrisy regarding censorship (he opposes the censorship of just about anything—except a Confederate flag or monument).

    Marlette has never responded.

    Huckabee and Marlette tend to embrace two extremes.

    Huckabee tends to embrace rightism, neoconservatism, and the Republican Party.

    Marlette tends to embrace leftism, liberalism, and the Democratic Party.

    Rightism, neoconservatism, and the Republican Party—and leftism, liberalism, and the Democratic Party—are two sides of the same coin.

    And this coin best be avoided—by all of us.

    Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward ends his recent Guestview, “Why I’m fighting to keep Bayview Cross,” with the statements, “. . . I want to keep Pensacola’s rich history and culture in place for future generations. It’s the right thing to do.”

    On June 24, 2015, Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s Five Flags Displays.

    On July 29, 2015, Monica Miller, of the American Humanist Association, emailed a thirteen-page letter to Hayward, and others, demanding that a historical cross be censored from Bayview Park.

    Hayward couldn’t care less about Pensacola’s rich history and culture—or doing the right thing.

    Besides threatening to censor Pensacola’s Confederate Memorial Monument, Hayward, along with his cronies on the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners, has kept our First Confederate Flag censored from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.

    If we residents of Greater Pensacola, Florida, do not want to see our Bayview Park Cross censored, we had better force Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays.

    Because the threatened court-ordered censorship of our Bayview Park Cross will be a direct consequence of the local-government-imposed censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.

    This is a case of cause and effect.

    If we know that it is wrong to have sex with people without their consent, we must also know that it is wrong to censor people’s historical flags and monuments without their consent.

    If we know that it is a violation of people’s rights to have sex with them without their consent, we must also know that it is a violation of people’s rights to censor their historical flags and monuments without their consent.

    People’s historical flags and monuments have been censored all over the United States, without their consent, since June 22, 2015—and people’s historical flags and monuments continue to be censored all over the United States, without their consent.

    If we know that non-consensual sex is wrong, we must also know that non-consensual censorship is wrong.

    If we know that non-consensual sex is a violation of human rights, we must also know that non-consensual censorship is a violation of human rights.

    This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is mass censorship of the people’s historical flags and monuments, by Democratic and Republican state and local politicians, without the people’s consent.

    This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is a mass violation of the human and constitutional rights of all Americans.

    Non-consensual censorship is wrong too.

    Non-consensual censorship is a violation of constitutional rights too.

    Non-consensual censorship is a violation of human rights too.

    Christine Blasey Ford recounts that both she and Brett Kavanaugh were drunk at the time of the alleged incident.

    Deborah Ramirez recounts that both she and Brett Kavanaugh were drunk at the time of the alleged incident.

    Assuming that all three of these people are being truthful, all three of them could be misremembering these two alleged incidents, because of drunkenness.

    So the testimony of any of these three people is even less reliable than that of Anita Hill or Clarence Thomas, in 1991.

    And since I am not any of these three people (just as I was not Anita Hill or Clarence Thomas), none of this tabloid trash is any of my concern, whatsoever.

    What is of my concern is this:

    Whoever replaces that mindless, worthless Anthony Kennedy, on our Supreme Court—I want him or her to overturn both Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges.

    Roe v. Wade has murdered tens of thousands of my fellow Americans and human beings—and Obergefell v. Hodges has nullified my vote, as a citizen of the State of Florida.

    Both Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges are federal infringements on our states’ rights—and on our constitutional, civil, and human rights, as citizens of the United States of America.

    This is why both Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges must be overturned, this year, if possible—next year, at the latest.

    In 1991, Democratic politicians hated George H.W. Bush. But instead of taking that hatred out on President Bush, they took it out on Clarence Thomas.

    In 2018, Democratic politicians hate Donald Trump. But instead of taking that hatred out on President Trump, they take it out on Brett Kavanaugh.

    In 1991, liberals hated George H.W. Bush. But instead of taking that hatred out on President Bush, they took it out on their fellow Americans.

    In 2018, liberals hate Donald Trump. But instead of taking that hatred out on President Trump, they take it out on their fellow Americans.

    I hate liberals and neocons (neoconservatives). And I take that hatred out on liberals and neocons.

    I hate the Democratic and Republican parties. And I take that hatred out on the Democratic and Republican parties.

    I hate Democratic and Republican politicians. And I take that hatred out on Democratic and Republican politicians.

    I hate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and I take that hatred out on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

    And more than anyone else in the world, I hate Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley. And I take that hatred out on Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley.

    Get the idea?

    Since this ongoing posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America was begun by Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley on June 22, 2015, Generation Y-ers (“millennials”) have been judging Nineteenth-century Americans by their own mindless, godless, inhuman, ignorant, intolerant, hypocritical, bigoted, prejudiced, arrogant, self-absorbed, simplistic, shallow, immoral, unethical, irresponsible, disrespectful, inconsiderate, leftist, standardless, worthless, smartphone-addicted, Digital-Age standards.

    And since this ongoing character-assassination of Brett Kavanaugh was begun by laughably stereotypical Democratic politicians on July 30, 2018, Generation Y-ers have been judging 1980s Americans by their own mindless, godless, inhuman, ignorant, intolerant, hypocritical, bigoted, prejudiced, arrogant, self-absorbed, simplistic, shallow, immoral, unethical, irresponsible, disrespectful, inconsiderate, leftist, standardless, worthless, smartphone-addicted, Digital-Age standards.

    Generation Y-ers would do well to stop condescendingly scrutinizing the lives of their elders and ancestors—and mind their own business.
