“WHERE IS THE RESISTANCE TO THIS MONUMENT?”

“‘It’s always a good thing to remember and honor our history,’ said Claudine Kriss as reported by Troy Moon in his article referencing General Galvez’s sculpture by Captain Robert Rasmussen, USN, Ret. and Katherine R. Vineze.

“The addition of this monument will enhance the downtown area of Pensacola as does the existing monument in Lee’s Square atop the hill on Palafox Street of a Confederate soldier—a part of our history too.  The question begs, where is the resistance to this monument?

“The Spanish were instrumental in assisting the American Colonies to gain their independence from Britain, but are also responsible for enslaving, spreading disease, torture, maiming, theft, murder, rape, arson and other crimes that wiped out tribes of Native Americans along the Gulf Coast, Florida and the Southeast.

“Florida was, while under Spanish control, a refuge for runaway slaves.  However, the Spanish were quick to enslave the Africans and send them to their colonies in Cuba and elsewhere in the Caribbean Basin.

 

“If the Pensacola News Journal is indeed unbiased, offers responsible journalistic discourse with all sides having the light of truth to shine upon a subject, then this newspaper should relate historical facts with reference to the Spanish atrocities known throughout many publications, books and articles written on this very subject.

“We can’t change history any more than we can change who our parents are!  Our history is just that…history!  It is what it is!”

PRESIDENT@CLEMSON.EDU

Dr. Clements,

Why are you allowing Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott to speak at Clemson University graduation ceremonies?

Both would be perfectly suitable to speak at Clemson—in the manner of Robert Spencer or Al Sharpton.

Neither is suitable to speak at any commencement ceremonies.

Both Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott are neocon politicians.

Both Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott are pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liars—and neither has any business brainwashing impressionable college graduates, any more than any liberal politicians do.

Neocons and liberals are the same.

I ask you not to pander to Nimrata Randhawa Haley or Tim Scott.

And I cordially invite you to sign my online petition to President Trump to remove Nimrata Randhawa Haley from his cabinet.

Dr. Clements, I am an alumnus of Auburn University—I attended Auburn my first year of college.

I’ve watched Auburn play Clemson in epic football clashes—Clemson is a beloved rival of Auburn for which Auburn has tremendous admiration.

And if I were you, I would not be proud that Nimrata Randhawa Haley is an alumnus of Clemson University—I would be ashamed of that.

I would keep that under wraps—the last thing I would do is allow that diabolical politician to give a commencement speech to Clemson graduates.

Dr. Clements, our country is going to hell.

And it is both neocon and liberal politicians who are driving it to hell.

And Nimrata Randhawa Haley is the worst of them all—and the most dangerous to our country and our world.

Please rescind your invitation to Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott to speak at Clemson University commencement ceremonies.

And sign my online petition to President Trump to remove the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley from his cabinet—if you care about our country at all.

STOP PANDERING TO MITCH LANDRIEU—AND SIGN THIS PETITION IF YOU WANT TO AVERT A DISASTER

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were the only Republican or Democratic presidential candidates in 2016 who were not suitable to be President of the United States—at all.

I have been an independent American voter since 2003.  Did you know that independent and third party voters are prohibited by law from voting in any Democratic or Republican primary elections in most U.S. states—because most U.S. states are closed primary states?  Did you know that if we independent and third party voters would not have been prohibited by law from voting in the Democratic or Republican primaries in most U.S. states in 2016, we could have prevented Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton from being elected President of the United States?  Did you know that if you would have voted for Bernie Sanders, instead of Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 Democratic primaries, you could have prevented Donald Trump from being elected President of the United States—and that you are more responsible for Donald Trump’s presidency than those who voted for him in the 2016 Republican primaries?

Though I first registered with the Republican Party, I voted for Ross Perot in 1992, at age 26—my first presidential vote was very late, but I have never regretted my choice.  And I have always regretted that not enough of my fellow American voters chose to vote for Ross Perot, rather than Bill Clinton or George H.W. Bush—because they thought an independent candidate couldn’t win.  (Of course he couldn’t win if you didn’t vote for him!)

There were no independent presidential candidates on the ballot, at all, in 2012—only third party candidates.  So I voted for Barack Obama—because I truly believed he was the lesser of two evils, and that I truly had to choose the lesser of two evils, in the first place.  And I have regretted that decision, ever since election night that year, when Barack Obama blindsided us with his LGBTQ rainbow bouquet.

And there were no independent presidential candidates on the ballot in 2016 either—only third party candidates.  And the only one of those parties whose platforms I completely dug was, ironically, the Reform Party—the party founded by Ross Perot supporters in 1995.  Yet the views of the presidential candidate for the Reform Party were in complete opposition to the views of the party he was supposed to represent.

So I cast a write-in vote for myself, Scott W. Mayo, as an independent presidential candidate in 2016—because that was the only way I could vote my conscience.

What are you going to do in 2020?

In 2020, you are likely to be faced with a choice between Mitch Landrieu and Donald Trump—or Mitch Landrieu and Nimrata Randhawa Haley.

And if you are fortunate enough to be stuck with Donald Trump for another four years—a far lesser evil than Mitch Landrieu—what are you going to do in 2024, when you are faced with a choice between any Democrat and Nimrata Randhawa Haley?

You can prevent this nightmare scenario by first ceasing and desisting your pandering to Mitch Landrieu and Nimrata Randhawa Haley.

They are both pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liars—and if you pander to either of them, you are setting your country and yourself up for a nightmare scenario far worse than the nightmare scenario in which your country and yourself are currently existing.

Stop pandering to Mitch Landrieu—and sign this petition if you want to avert a disaster:

IT IS ANTI-AMERICAN NOT TO HOLD THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO ITS WORD

“…every treaty, every promise, that North Korea has ever made has been broken.”

Stephen Ganyard, ABC News contributor

According to the indigenous people of the United States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the African slaves in the United States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the indentured servants in the United States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the people of the Confederate States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to those who worked and fought on behalf of the people of the Confederate States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the field, mine, railroad, and factory laborers in the United States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the people of every state and territory in the United States, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the people of Mexico, Germany, Japan, and numerous other nations, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to the indigenous people of Palestine, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

According to a lot of people, and their descendants, this is also true of the United States, isn’t it?

It is not anti-American to hold the United States of America to its word.

It is anti-American not to hold the United States of America to its word.

VIEWPOINT

Escambia County 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 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, Maxine Waters 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.

A DIFFERENT APPROACH

—Original Message—

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to 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—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.
