A DIFFERENT APPROACH

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.

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.

How is this happening?

These courageous, young Black Americans (with the support of some courageous, young White Americans) were not interested in censoring anyone’s historical flags or monuments.

They were interested in gaining real access to the ideal rights to which they were entitled, as Americans.

The cowardly, young White Americans (with the support of some cowardly, young Black Americans) who are interested in censoring everyone’s historical flags and monuments, would do well to learn from these courageous, young Black and White Americans who sought to secure their own rights—not to infringe on the rights of others.

IF YOU “STAND WITH ISRAEL,” YOU NEED TO READ THIS:

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

“They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

“Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

“And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

“I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

“I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

“They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father.  Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

“But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

“Ye do the deeds of your father.  Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. 

“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

“Why do ye not understand my speech?  even because ye cannot hear my word.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

“And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

“Which of you convinceth me of sin?  And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

“He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

“Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

“Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

“And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

“Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil.  Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

“Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead?  and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

“Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

“Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

“Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

“Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.”

John 8 : 31-59

MAKE UP YOUR MIND

IF YOU DEFEND THIS FLAG,

 

YOU MUST DEFEND THESE FLAGS.

 

 

 

IF YOU STAND FOR THIS FLAG,

 

YOU MUST STAND FOR THIS FLAG,

 

AND YOU MUST STAND AGAINST THIS FLAG.

 

 

 

IF YOU SHUN THIS FLAG,

 

YOU MUST SHUN THIS FLAG.

 

 

 

MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

CENSORSHIP BY SECULAR LIBERALS IS STILL CENSORSHIP

“I’m not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance.”

And we’re not going to censor our Confederate flags and monuments to comfort your ignorance—or the ignorance of any other secular liberal hypocrites.
