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.

Proud American who is doing everything he can to prevent the self-destruction of his country
