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:

https://www.change.org/p/pensacola-mayor-ashton-hayward-and-the-escambia-county-board-of-county-commissioners-return-the-first-confederate-flag-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.

LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS FLAG—AND TELL ME WHAT IT SHOWS

THE ONLY POLICE WE SHOULD ALWAYS RESIST ARE THE THOUGHT POLICE

The only police we should always resist are the thought police.

RE: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Congressman Gaetz,

I know you didn’t send this email—it was sent by a robot.

But I hope somehow you can see this reply.

My Thanksgiving is miserable—in part because of some sociopolitical problems that are worsening by the minute, problems that you can probably do something to  help solve.

Congressman  Gaetz, willfully distracted drivers are getting away with murder in Florida because the politicians in Tallahassee refuse to pass any laws restricting mobile usage while driving.  A “law” against texting while driving—as a secondary offense—is not a law.

Please use your power and influence to persuade the Florida State Government to move texting while driving from a secondary-offense position to a primary-offense position—at the very least.  Please do something to stop this slaughter on our roads and highways—the death toll of which keeps rising.

Congressman Gaetz, the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.

The local politicians here—namely Ashton Hayward, Doug Underhill, Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Jeff Bergosh), and Lumon May—have censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five-Flags Displays (Pensacola’s historical flags displays), since June 24, 2015.  Congressman Gaetz, our First Confederate Flag is still censored from our Five-Flags Displays—and we have never even been allowed to vote on this.

Please use your political power and influence to persuade these local politicians to cease and desist this government-imposed censorship—this local-government infringement on the First-Amendment right to freedom of speech of all Escambia County, Florida, residents, of all races and ethnicities.

Also, please use your political power and influence to persuade the Florida State Government to pass a law, similar to the one the government of my home state of Alabama has passed, protecting all Confederate memorial monuments from removal or destruction by anyone—especially by politicians.

Finally, Congressman Gaetz, because the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley perpetrated this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, I hate her with all my heart.  This is my problem.

Yet because the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley exploited the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof, for her political career—from June 22 through July 9, 2015—she is ultimately guilty of the same crime as Dylann Roof.  And this is America’s problem.

And because the Incompetent Donald Trump has chosen to put the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley in his presidential cabinet—and to keep the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley in his presidential cabinet—the Incompetent Donald Trump is rewarding the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley for her criminal exploitation of Dylann Roof’s crime.  And this is humanity’s problem.

Please use your political power and influence to persuade the Incompetent Donald Trump to remove the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley from his presidential cabinet (by doing so, President Trump can prove that he is not so incompetent anymore).

And if you use your political power and influence for good—by carrying out these urgently needed sociopolitical actions—my next Thanksgiving, as well as the next Thanksgiving of all good Americans, will not likely be miserable at all.

Scott Wesley Mayo
