FLAG MEME FOR PENSACOLIANS

IF THIS FLAG OFFENDS YOU, YOU NEED A HISTORY LESSON.

 

IF THIS FLAG DOES NOT OFFEND YOU JUST A LITTLE BIT, YOU NEED A HISTORY LESSON.

 

IF THIS FLAG DOES NOT OFFEND YOU A LOT, YOU NEED A HISTORY LESSON.

 

IF THIS FLAG DOES NOT OFFEND YOU A LOT, YOU NEED A HISTORY LESSON.

 

IF THIS FLAG DOES NOT OFFEND YOU A LOT, YOU NEED A HISTORY LESSON.

 

 

IF THIS FLAG DOES NOT MAKE YOU MAD AS HELL, YOU MOST DEFINITELY NEED A HISTORY LESSON.

AMERICAN FLAGS

We expect our American troops to defend our current American Flag against all foreign enemies.

But if we don’t defend our historical American Flags against all domestic enemies, how can we be worthy of our American troops?

SAY NO TO CENSORSHIP

On June 24, 2015, Republican Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays.  He did this without the consent of his constituents.

Mayor Hayward stated, in a press release:

“While the Confederate Flag undeniably represents a part of Pensacola’s history, to many it is a painful symbol of racial hatred and intolerance.”

Mayor Hayward didn’t mention that the “Confederate Flag” he had censored was not the Confederate Battle Flag—but the First Confederate Flag.  This flag:

On June 25, 2015, Escambia County Democratic Women’s Club President Dianne Krumel made this demand of the Escambia County Commission:

“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.”

All five members of the Escambia County Commission—Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Republican Jeff Bergosh), and Democrat Lumon May—gave in to Dianne Krumel’s demand, and chose to keep the First Confederate Flag censored from Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays.  They did this without the consent of their constituents—including me.

This government-imposed censorship of the First Confederate Flag, from our historical flags displays, continues—without our consent.

Yet now there is a way you can help me put a stop to this government-imposed censorship of our historical flags displays here in Greater Pensacola, Florida—and you don’t even have to be a resident of Greater Pensacola, Florida, to do it.

I’ve started an online petition to have the First Confederate Flag returned to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays:

Are you as opposed to government-imposed censorship as I am?

Then click on the link above, and sign the petition—and together we can say no to censorship.

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 2

PROUD DESCENDANT OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS

Pensacola City Council,

For God’s sake, vote that our Confederate memorial monument is left alone—and in peace.

Our Confederate memorial monument belongs to all of us residents of Escambia County, Florida—of all races and ethnicities.  It does not belong to the Pensacola City Council, and it damned sure doesn’t belong to the Despotic Mayor Ashton Hayward.

Our Confederate memorial monument is too old and fragile to be moved—any attempt to move it will result in its destruction.

On June 24, 2015, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s historical flags displays.  He did this without the consent of his constituents.

On June 25, 2015, all five Escambia County Commissioners chose to keep the First Confederate Flag censored from Pensacola’s historical flags displays.  They did this without the consent of their constituents—including me.

I live just down the street from the censored Five-Flags display in front of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course.  So every time I leave my residence, I have to see this gross infringement on our First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.  And every time I return to my residence, I have to see this gross infringement on our First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.  And I am so goddamned tired of being forced to look at this local-government censorship.

Yet that flag can be restored, once Republican Ashton Hayward, Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Jeff Bergosh, and Democrat Lumon May are voted out of office—and hopefully into political oblivion.

That monument cannot.

We cannot let Ashton Hayward do to Pensacola what Mitch Landrieu has done to New Orleans—we simply cannot.

And I am counting on you to see that what has happened in New Orleans will not happen here.

See to it that our Confederate memorial monument is left alone—and in peace.

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

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

FOR THE RECORD

DIABOLICAL SOCIOPATHS

“Another story, also in Sunday’s edition of the News Journal, incorrectly stated to whom Scott Mayo was referring in a quotation.  Mayo, who was quoted at the Confederate monument rally, referred to the Pensacola City Council, Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Commissioners as ‘diabolical sociopaths.'”

Pensacola News Journal, Tuesday, August 29, 2017

I don’t recall referring to the Pensacola City Council members as “diabolical sociopaths”—I didn’t even know their names (I reside just outside the Pensacola city limits, so I’ve only had to deal with the diabolically sociopathic Escambia County Commissioners—and with the diabolically sociopathic Mayor of Pensacola). But if I did, it was under the presumption that they were politicians—not the knowledge that they were.

As aforementioned in this blog, not all public officials and political leaders are diabolically evil, because not all public officials and political leaders are politicians. But most of them are politicians—all over the world.  And most of them have always been politicians—all over the world.  And all politicians are diabolically evil—there are no exceptions.

This is why it is so refreshing and encouraging to make the acquaintances of public officials and political leaders who are not politicians.

It is so refreshing and encouraging to make the acquaintances of public officials and political leaders like P.C. Wu and Sherri Myers—both Pensacola City Council members.

Perhaps very soon I can add to this list of Pensacola City Council members who are not politicians—I certainly hope so.

“…a generous proportion of the country now, and always, eschews extremism, and embraces tolerance of others’ cultures and inheritances and beliefs.  Such folk will be society’s salvation.”

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?

DIABOLICAL SOCIOPATHS

“Pro-monument speaker, Scott Mayo, began calling the anti-monument protesters ‘diabolical sociopaths,’ but was received by a high-pitched whistle trying to drown him out.

“‘Where are you (Mayor) Ashton Hayward, where are you?’ Mayo asked into the bullhorn.  ‘I was hoping you would show up today and speak with these people, but you won’t show your face, will you?’

“Mayo then turned his efforts to calling out the Escambia County Commissioners and the Pensacola City Council members, none of whom appeared to be present at the rally.  He urged them to take a stance and speak to the division in the city over the Confederate monument.”

Pensacola News Journal, Sunday, August 27, 2017

Though I was speaking to anti-monument protesters, I did not call them “diabolical sociopaths”.

I called politicians “diabolical sociopaths”—because they were diabolical sociopaths, because they are diabolical sociopaths, and because they always will be diabolical sociopaths.

I called Republican Nikki Haley a diabolical sociopath.  I called Republican Doug Underhill a diabolical sociopath.  I called Republican Steven Barry a diabolical sociopath.  I called Republican Grover C. Robinson IV a diabolical sociopath.  I called Republican Jeff Bergosh a diabolical sociopath.  I called Republican Wilson Robertson (Bergosh’s predecessor) a diabolical sociopath.  I called Democrat Lumon May a diabolical sociopath.  And more than once, I called Republican Ashton Hayward a diabolical sociopath.

I called the politicians who were censoring historical flags and destroying historical monuments, without the consent of their constituents, diabolical sociopaths.  I called the politicians engaged in this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, which is destructive to the United States of America, diabolical sociopaths.  I called the politicians who were exploiting the misguided and misinformed, though very well-intentioned young people, diabolical sociopaths.  I called the politicians, who refused to even listen to these young people they were exploiting, diabolical sociopaths.

I called politicians “diabolical sociopaths”—because they were diabolical sociopaths, because they are diabolical sociopaths, and because they always will be diabolical sociopaths.
