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.

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 3

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?

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU KIDS BELIEVE IN?

You have no respect for this flag, because you have no respect for law enforcement officers—dead or alive, Black or White.

 

You have no respect for these flags—in fact, you demand that politicians censor these flags—though you have no understanding of these flags at all.

 

You don’t know what this flag is—though you claim that Black lives matter to you.

 

You don’t know what this flag is either—or care to know what it is.

 

You don’t realize that if the Republican President of the United States orders an invasion of the State of California—just as the Republican President of the United States ordered an invasion of Southern states in 1861—this flag will be censored immediately, and anyone who tries to display it again will be killed.

 

You definitely approve of local politicians replacing the First Confederate Flag with this flag, in our historical flags displays—though it has been done without our consent, and is historically inaccurate.

 

You have no idea that the same politicians who censor all of the Confederate flags you dislike so much will eventually censor this flag you like so much.

 

What exactly do you kids believe in?

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.

THREE CARTOONS THAT STILL NAIL IT, AND WHY THEY STILL NAIL IT

“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?'”
“ANY TIME THERE IS A TRAUMATIC SITUATION, PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING TO BLAME–THEY ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING TO GO AFTER…”

“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]”
“TODAY WE ARE HERE…TO SAY IT’S TIME TO MOVE THE FLAG…”
