WAKE UP, AMERICA

Upon seeing this picture, I immediately began laughing.

I’m still laughing.

This is Little Mitch Landrieu, refusing to listen to reason.

Reminds me of Little Nikki Haley.

We can laugh at these spoiled, little brats.

Then we can stop laughing–and stop them.

Otherwise, Republican Nikki Haley will be the next President of the United States.

Unless Democrat Mitch Landrieu defeats her in the election.

Wake up, America.

HOW NIKKI HALEY CAN BE STOPPED

WHY NIKKI HALEY MUST BE STOPPED

Nikki Haley can be removed from office–this is the only way she can be stopped.

But President Trump won’t do this, because he’s the one who nominated her for this position in his cabinet–immediately after he was elected.

And if President Trump is removed from office, President Pence won’t do this either.

No Democratic or Republican politician will remove Nikki Haley from office.  She’s too right-wing for the Republicans to remove her, and too politically correct for the Democrats to remove her.  It was both Republicans and Democrats on the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations who favorably reported her–and both Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Senate who confirmed her–in the first place.

Nikki Haley will not be removed from office officially.

But she can be removed from office unofficially.

She can be executed for her crime.

As of April 10, 2017, Dylann S. Roof has finally been given nine consecutive life sentences for the nine lives he took.  But Nikki Haley has not only escaped prosecution for her crime of exploiting the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof–she is being rewarded for it.  And in four years (eight years if Trump or Pence is reelected) she may be President of the United States.

I have neither the means nor expertise to carry out an act of vigilante justice.

But someone has.

Someone has both the means and expertise to execute Nikki Haley for her crime of exploiting a mass murder.

Someone has both the means and expertise to execute Nikki Haley before she can exploit any more mass murders–and before she can further her career, even into the White House, on the backs of countless more murder victims.

Unless protocol has changed, Nikki R. Haley (a.k.a. Nimrata Randhawa Haley) currently resides in an elaborate and elegant suite of rooms on the 42nd floor of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.  She works gloats, schemes, and manipulates at the United Nations Headquarters complex in New York City.  And though she is almost certainly guarded between the United Nations and the Waldorf-Astoria most of the time, she is almost certainly unguarded between the United Nations and the Waldorf-Astoria some of the time.

As long as Nikki Haley serves as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, justice will not be served.

Someone has both the means and expertise to serve justice–to execute the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley for her crime against humanity.

That someone has my appreciation and admiration.

And that someone will have my testimony, on his (or her) behalf, once justice has finally been served.

All he (or she) needs to do is mention my name (Scott Wesley Mayo)–or the name of my blog.

A LETTER TO EVERY EDITOR

What’s strange about the blind system by which submissions are approved or rejected is that it often does exactly the opposite of what it’s intended to do.

In the last edition of the Emerald Coast Review I had the smallest amount of my submitted work published–since before I joined the West Florida Literary Federation in 2007–because I hadn’t been attending the monthly open mics in the two years before its publication.  I hadn’t been keeping in touch with the regular attendees of the open mics–and I especially hadn’t been reading my work.

Attendees of the open mics remember what’s read at the open mics–and who reads it.  So when they’re appointed to read submissions to the Emerald Coast Review, they know who wrote the submissions–they remember who read them at open mics.

Also, every writer–as you know–has a unique style.  So even if what one submits hasn’t been shared at an open mic, those who are familiar with his or her style still recognize it.

Then there’s prejudice by readers toward any submission.  Because we’re all prejudiced–and we always will be.

Your readers–who approve or disapprove every submission for the Emerald Coast Review–are extremely prejudiced.  Because they’re human beings–and all human beings are extremely prejudiced, and always have been.

This validly criticized politically-correct culture–which is a direct consequence of unrestrained Digital-Age technology–is arguably the best display of human prejudice in human history.

In the third part of a video presentation I gave on Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays, I compare the censorship by religious conservatives in the past to the censorship by secular liberals in the present.

I cite the censorship of the two funniest novels I’ve ever read–The Catcher in the Rye and Huckleberry Finn.

As I explain, The Catcher in the Rye was censored by religious conservatives, in the past, because it is laced with profanity–particularly the word, goddam.

And Huckleberry Finn is censored by secular liberals, in the present, because it is laced with the word, nigger.

But I also explain how–just as the religious conservatives who censored The Catcher in the Rye had never read The Catcher in the Rye–the secular liberals who censor Huckleberry Finn have never read Huckleberry Finn.

And censorship is born of prejudice.

Religious conservatives censored The Catcher in the Rye because they were extremely prejudiced of The Catcher in the Rye.

And secular liberals censor Huckleberry Finn because they are extremely prejudiced of Huckleberry Finn.

The majority of your readers were extremely prejudiced of my submission because it had the word, Goddamned, in its title.  And the majority of Southern Americans–of any age–have a strong aversion toward that word.

In fact, there was a study done, years ago, on what television content most offended viewers in different regions of the United States.

West Coast viewers were most offended by gratuitous violence.

Midwestern viewers were most offended by gratuitous sex.

And Southern viewers were most offended by profane language.

Then of course I strongly criticize this Digital Age in my submission.

I choose not to have a cellphone–but none of your readers likely make that choice.

I choose not to have a Facebook or Twitter account–but none of your readers likely make that choice.

So how do you think they felt, reading my submission?

Here was some high-and-mighty, old bastard who had the audacity to criticize their Digital-Age lifestyle–and unashamedly declare it, in the very title of his submission, to be damned by God!

Of course your readers rejected my submission–I would have expected that.

That’s why I would expect you to override their decision.

You’re the editor-in-chief of the Emerald Coast Review.  You have your prejudices, of course–but you’re almost certainly more intelligently discerning than your readers are.  And you’re obviously far more experienced with evaluating writing, based on its literary merit–as well as its historical, anecdotal, psychological, sociological, and philosophical merit–than your readers are.

Then there’s the anonymity of your readers.  They have an idea who we are–but we have no idea who they are, until the Emerald Coast Review is published.

So there’s no skin off their noses–they don’t have to answer to us, as to why they’ve rejected our submissions.

This is like a jury trial in which the accused never even sees or hears the anonymous jury until the judge has already sentenced the accused.

So as the judge in the trial of my submission, Parts 1 and 2 of DEALING WITH THE GODDAMNED DIGITAL AGE, I respectfully ask you to overrule the decision made by the anonymous jury.

I respectfully ask you to include it in this upcoming edition of the Emerald Coast Review.

DIGITAL-AGE APOCALYPSE

The Four Horsemen meet again at the top of the world.

Moses says

So many of my people still don’t listen to me.

They exploit the Gentiles–especially the indigenous ones of the Holy Land.

Yet now they carry a new god with them everywhere they go.

And this new god removes them from their neighbors

And from their Creator–their Source.

Buddha says

So many of my people still don’t listen to me.

They show indifference to those most in need–and violent cruelty in the land they now call Myanmar.

Yet now they carry a new god with them everywhere they go.

And this new god removes them from their neighbors

And from their Creator–their Source.

Jesus says

So many of my people still don’t listen to me.

They make a weapon of my name–and they fail to follow me in word or deed.

Yet now they carry a new god with them everywhere they go.

And this new god removes them from their neighbors

And from their Creator–their Source.

Muhammad says

So many of my people still don’t listen to me.

They fight among themselves as Shiites and Sunnis–failing to unite in Islam.

Yet now they carry a new god with them everywhere they go.

And this new god removes them from their neighbors

And from their Creator–their Source.

The Four Horsemen say

Let us appeal to the Creator–the Source

To destroy this new god

So our people will at least interact with their neighbors again

And with their Creator–their Source.

WEIRD PENSACOLA POLITICIANS

In 2000, the Confederate Battle Flag in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays was replaced with the First Confederate Flag (a.k.a. the Stars and Bars).

Yet on June 24, 2015, Republican Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag–by replacing it with the State Flag of Florida.  He did this without the consent of his constituents.

Then on June 25, 2015, 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–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.

The First Confederate Flag remains censored from our Five-Flags Displays–without our consent.  We have not even been allowed to vote on this.  Because our historical flags displays belong to us, all the people of Escambia County, Florida–not to the politicians who have censored them–this government-imposed censorship is a gross infringement on our First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

The censorship of the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays is historically inaccurate.  The State of Florida was a nation only according to one obscure source on the Internet–and only for two or three weeks in 1861.  And according to this source, that Republic of Florida’s flag was of a totally different design than that of the State of Florida.

The censorship of the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays is also downright ridiculous.  Although African slavery was practiced in the Confederate States, African slavery continued to be practiced in the United States–in Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, and Missouri–until the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified by senators and representatives of both the United States and the Occupied Confederate States, in December, 1865 (Republican President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation was simply a propaganda tool to elicit the support of Britain and France, because it only applied to the Confederate States–the remaining slave states of Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, and Missouri were exempt from it).

And Spain, France, and Britain were three of the five European powers that brought African slaves to the Americas, in the first place (the other two were Portugal and the Netherlands).

Politicians who censor flags from their constituents’ historical flags displays–especially without their constituents’ consent–are control freaks.

And control freaks are weird.

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

BECAUSE HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF

150 years ago, the Republican Party was punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot–John Wilkes Booth.

And 150 years later, the Republican Party is punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot–Dylann Storm Roof.

Formed in 1854–not for the abolition of slavery, but for the creation of an American empire centered in the industrialized Northern region of the United States–the Republican Party, from the very beginning, was literally pledged against the South.

Now the Republican Party is pledged against the South, once again.

And just as it is time for Democratic voters all over the United States to abandon the Democratic Party, it is time for Republican voters all over the United States to abandon the Republican Party–especially in the South.

Because history is repeating itself.
