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.

POLITICAL CRIMINAL NIKKI HALEY

On June 17, 2015, Dylann Roof murdered nine people.

This is his life now.

 

From June 22 through July 9, 2015, Nikki Haley exploited Dylann Roof’s murder of nine people.

This is her life now.

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 PART 2

HOW ABOUT YOU, PENSACOLA?

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, 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.

On July 29, 2015, Monica Miller, of the American Humanist Association, emailed a thirteen-page letter to Republican Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, City Attorney Lysia Bowling, and City of Pensacola Parks & Recreation Director Brian Cooper, demanding that a historical cross be censored from Bayview Park.  She emailed a copy of this letter to the East Hill Neighborhood Association.

Miller’s letter began thus:

“A City of Pensacola resident has contacted our office on behalf of several concerned residents to request assistance with regard to what is correctly perceived as a constitutional violation.  Specifically, the City of Pensacola is violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment by prominently displaying a towering, stand-alone Latin cross–a Christian symbol–on government property in Bayview Park.  An image of this cross is provided below.

“Because this cross violates the Establishment Clause, we hereby demand that the City promptly remove it to private property, and if the City does not, our organization will pursue the matter through litigation in federal court.”

And Miller’s letter ended thus:

“In view of the aforementioned authorities, it is clear that the City is in violation of the Establishment Clause.  This letter serves as an official notice of the unconstitutional activity and demands that the City remove the cross from Bayview Park immediately.  We kindly ask that you notify us in writing within seven (7) days of receipt of this letter setting forth the steps you will take to rectify this constitutional infringement.  Thank you for turning your attention to this important matter.”

The Bayview Park Cross has now been ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge. The City of Pensacola is appealing this ruling, with pro bono legal representation by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty–and U.S. District Court Judge Roger Vinson has suspended his order to remove the Bayview Park Cross by July 19, 2017, pending this appeal.

An “important matter” indeed.

Yet this “important matter” didn’t even exist until Republican Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays, without the consent of his constituents, and all five members of the Escambia County Commission–Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Wilson Robertson, and Democrat Lumon May–chose to keep the First Confederate Flag censored from Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays, without the consent of their constituents.

Because of abusive local politicians (all but one of whom are Republicans)–and Digital-Age Pensacolians mindlessly tolerating their abuse–Pensacola is no longer the City of Five Flags.

Yet Pensacola may soon be known, nationwide, as the City of Censorship.

And there are numerous potential targets for pro-censorship activists in Pensacola, Florida.

Here are just a few of them:

Pro-censorship activists can make an “important matter” of every single one of the above Pensacola icons–and countless more.

Yet it’s not pro-censorship activists who abuse the people–it’s corrupt and cowardly politicians who give in to them.  Corrupt and cowardly politicians like Democrat Lumon May, Republican Wilson Robertson (and his exact-duplicate replacement, Republican Jeff Bergosh), Republican Steven Barry, Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, Republican Doug Underhill–and especially Republican Ashton Hayward, who started this vicious cycle of censorship in Pensacola, on June 24, 2015.

Instead of censoring historical flags and crosses, I’d rather censor corrupt and cowardly politicians who engage in government-imposed censorship–who infringe on their constituents’ First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.  I’d rather straighten those bastards out–or get them out of office.

How about you, Pensacola?

NIKKI HALEY IS A DISGRACE TO OUR NATION

“Spending my 4th in meetings all day.  Thanks, North Korea.”

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?

THE POLITICIANS OF TODAY ARE THE DICTATORS OF TOMORROW

THE POLITICIANS OF TODAY ARE THE DICTATORS OF TOMORROW.

THIS IS THE POLITICIAN’S TRUE APPEARANCE

“Just 5 months into our time here, we’ve already been able to cut over half a billion $$$ from the UN peacekeeping budget & we’re only getting started.”

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

While Dylann Roof resides in a room without a view at the Terre Haute Federal Prison, Nikki Haley resides in a suite with this view, on the 42nd floor of the Waldorf Astoria New York.

Dylann Roof has begun serving nine consecutive life sentences for the nine lives he viciously took on June 17, 2015.  

Meanwhile, Nikki Haley is serving herself as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and living it up in Manhattan–for her exploitation of the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof.

What’s wrong with this picture?
