We, the people, have no one to turn to anymore.

Mr. (Scott) Martelle:

What did you write about guns after Dylann Roof’s June 17, 2015, mass murder of nine innocent churchgoers?
Or did you blame a Confederate flag instead?
Mr. Martelle, our First Confederate Flag (aka the Stars and Bars) has been censored from our Five Flags Displays (historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has existed), since June 24, 2015—without our consent.
Mr. Martelle, since June 24, 2015, we residents of Escambia County, Florida, have been punished for Dylann Roof’s crime.
Mr. Martelle, there are 314,000 people here in Escambia County, Florida—and most of them do not even know what the First Confederate Flag is, when they see it.
Your supposedly-journalistic peers at the Pensacola News Journal and at WEAR TV-3 will do absolutely nothing to help me bring awareness to this issue—they won’t touch this story, because it is politically incorrect.
Will you?
That’s a ridiculous question, isn’t it?
Mr. Martelle, since June 22, 2015, our historical Confederate flags and monuments have been censored all over our country—without our consent.
Since June 22, 2015—when Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley made a speech in which she blamed a mass murder in Charleston, South Carolina, on a historical American flag in Columbia, South Carolina—we Americans, of all races and ethnicities, have continuously been punished for Dylann Roof’s crime.
Why didn’t you journalists—you agents of our press—say something about guns in June, 2015—instead of blaming Confederate flags and monuments for a mass murder?
You know the answer, of course: Because our newspapers and television stations are now owned by remote media corporations in the pockets of politicians of both the Democratic and Republican parties, our press is no longer our watchdog on our government.  It is now our government’s lapdog, instead.
Mr. Martelle, from June 22 through July 9, 2015, Nimrata (“Nikki”) Randhawa Haley exploited a mass murder for her political career—and started an ongoing, posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.
And since then, the number of mass shootings has skyrocketed—and so has the death toll from mass shootings.
Ever since the press made mass shootings about Confederate flags and monuments, instead of guns, state and local politicians have been censoring Confederate flags and monuments—without the consent of their constituents, to whom these Confederate flags and monuments belong.
Our press had the opportunity to lead the national discussion on gun violence in June, 2015.  But you decided to blame Confederate flags and monuments instead.
Our press no longer informs us—you only entertain us.
And you don’t care how much destruction you wreak, in your insatiable appetite for ratings.
Mr. Martelle, this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.
And it’s too late for you—any of you—to whine about guns.
You had an opportunity to do that in 2015—and you blew it.
You are no longer journalists—none of you are.
Because you are no longer our watchdog on our government—but our government’s lapdog, instead—we, the people, have no one to turn to anymore.

HISTORY, CIVICS—AND MY PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

History is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

Most Americans do not know this though.

Though most Americans on the political right probably know that the history of the United States, in regards to the Confederate States, is filled with lies because the United States has been the victor since 1865, most Americans on the political right certainly do not know that the history of Israel, in regards to Palestine, is filled with lies because Israel has been the victor since 1948.

Though most Americans on the political left probably know that the history of Israel, in regards to Palestine, is filled with lies because Israel has been the victor since 1948, most Americans on the political left certainly do not know that the history of the United States, in regards to the Confederate States, is filled with lies because the United States has been the victor since 1865.

I know that history is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

I know that the history of Israel, in regards to Palestine, is filled with lies because Israel has been the victor since 1948.

It is my personal responsibility to share this knowledge with my fellow Americans on the political right—to the best of my ability.

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.

History is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

Adolf Hitler was a dictator.

Adolf Hitler was no better, or worse, than any other dictator.

Abraham Lincoln was a dictator.

Abraham Lincoln was no worse, or better, than any other dictator.

The only significant difference between Adolf Hitler and Abraham Lincoln was that Adolf Hitler lost the war he started, and Abraham Lincoln won the war he started.

History is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

 

The Nazi Party was a totalitarian party.

The Nazi Party was no better, or worse, than any other totalitarian party.

The Republican Party was a totalitarian party.

The Republican Party was no worse, or better, than any other totalitarian party.

The only significant difference between the Nazi Party and the Republican Party was that the Nazi Party lost the war it started, and the Republican Party won the war it started.

History is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

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?

YOU SHOULD BE TIRED OF IT TOO

ON JUNE 17, 2015, DYLANN ROOF MURDERED NINE PEOPLE AT MOTHER EMANUEL A.M.E. CHURCH IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA.

I AM SO TIRED OF BEING PUNISHED FOR HIS CRIME.

“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?'”

I AM SO TIRED OF BEING PUNISHED FOR HIS CRIME.

“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]”

YOU SHOULD BE TIRED OF IT TOO.

THESE TWO HOLOCAUSTS ARE THE SAME—AND YOU HAD BETTER UNDERSTAND THIS.

You don’t care about your Southern American ancestors if you support the Zionist State of Israel—you simply don’t.

You don’t care about the Palestinian people if you support the censorship of Confederate flags and monuments—you simply don’t.

The Palestinian people are suffering the same subjugation, displacement, and genocide that our Southern American ancestors were suffering 150 years ago.

150 years ago, our Southern American ancestors were suffering the same subjugation, displacement, and genocide that the Palestinian people are suffering today.

These two holocausts are the same—and you had better understand this.

NO COMFORT TO ME

When well-wishers tell me that my passive-aggressive tormentors, in this life, will be punished, in the next life, I appreciate that sentiment.

But it is of no comfort to me.

How can the knowledge that my passive-aggressive tormentors, in this life, will be punished, in the next life, ease my torment, in this life?
