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

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 3

A CIVICS LESSON

Look at this flag.

This is a historical flag that represents the Confederate States of America—a historical nation in the history of the United States of America.

This flag is in a public space.

That means this flag belongs to the public.

The public is the people.

You are the people—and public officials, elected or appointed, have no right to censor this flag without your consent.

To do so is to violate your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

This flag belongs to you—no public official has the right to censor it without your consent.

It doesn’t matter how you feel about the historical Confederate States of America.

It only matters that this flag belongs to you—the people.

And no public official, elected or appointed, has any right to censor it without your consent.

What happens when public officials censor the public’s historical flags and monuments without the public’s consent—directly or indirectly?

What happens when public officials censor the people’s historical flags and monuments without the people’s consent—directly or indirectly?

This is what happens:

“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…”

“I UNDERSTAND THE [FIRST CONFEDERATE] FLAGS ARE DOWN, BUT I WANT TO MAKE IT PERMANENT. I DON’T WANT ANY CHANCE OF THOSE FLAGS GOING BACK UP.”

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?

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

WHAT FLAGS SHOW

From Scott Mayo, Escambia District 2 resident

Tuesday, November 6, 2018
3:00 a.m.
Mr. (Scott) Trotter,
I am a native of Mobile, Alabama, who has resided in Escambia District 2, since 1998.
Mr. Trotter, the only local issue I care about at all, at this time, is the ongoing censorship of our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays.
I am a registered independent voter—and I frankly despise both major political parties in this country.
That said, I see that you are the only candidate running against Doug Underhill—and I despise Doug Underhill even more than the political party he represents.
Mr. Trotter, I reside very close to the Five Flags display in front of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course on Tonawanda Drive—so I cannot avoid witnessing everything that is done to our Five Flags Displays.
Mr. Trotter, in 2000, the local politicians here replaced the Confederate Battle Flag, in our Five Flags Displays, with the First Confederate Flag (a.k.a. the Stars and Bars)—and no one had a problem with the First Confederate Flag.
But on June 24, 2015, Republican Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays—replacing it with the State Flag of Florida—without the consent of his constituents.
And on June 25, 2015, Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Republican Jeff Bergosh), Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, and Democrat Lumon May voted to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays—without the consent of their constituents, including me.
Mr. Trotter, our First Confederate Flag remains censored from our Five Flags Displays—without our consent.
Mr. Trotter, if you are elected County Commissioner for Escambia District 2, will you see to it that our First Confederate Flag is returned to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays?
Of the crooked politicians who have censored our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, Doug Underhill is the only one I’ve ever had the displeasure of meeting.
As you probably know, however, Doug Underhill is not only a crook but a criminal—a criminal who has swindled his fellow Maryland citizens out of potentially millions of dollars, through crooked business deals.
I think it’s safe to assume that you are not a crook, and certainly not a criminal (though I do wish you were running for office as an independent, rather than a Democrat).
I think it’s safe to assume that you would be a far better county commissioner for Escambia District 2 than Doug Underhill—and I am certainly considering voting for you, later today.
That said, I understand that today’s Democratic Party is even more hostile toward any historical Confederate flag or monument than today’s Republican Party is.
And I would like to know if you would vote independently of your party, in regards to our First Confederate Flag.
Mr. Trotter, I cannot emphasize enough that no one ever had a problem with the First Confederate Flag in our Five Flags Displays—that any controversy over historical Confederate flags should have been resolved, for all time, when the local politicians here replaced the Confederate Battle Flag, in our Five Flags Displays, with the First Confederate Flag.
Mr. Trotter, I have been researching and reporting on this censorship of our First Confederate Flag, from our Five Flags Displays, since it was begun—on my blog, Solosocial.  The website of my blog is solosocial.wordpress.com, and I invite you to visit my blog, and consider what I’ve reported.
Yet for my voting consideration later today, I ask again:
Mr. Trotter, if you are elected County Commissioner for Escambia District 2, will you see to it that our First Confederate Flag is returned to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Scott W. Mayo

NON-CONSENSUAL CENSORSHIP

If you know that it is wrong to have sex with people without their consent, you must also know that it is wrong to censor people’s historical flags and monuments without their consent.

If you know that it is a violation of people’s rights to have sex with them without their consent, you must also know that it is a violation of people’s rights to censor their historical flags and monuments without their consent.

People’s historical flags and monuments have been censored all over the United States, without their consent, since June 22, 2015—and people’s historical flags and monuments continue to be censored all over the United States, without their consent.

If you know that non-consensual sex is wrong, you must also know that non-consensual censorship is wrong.

If you know that non-consensual sex is a violation of human rights, you must also know that non-consensual censorship is a violation of human rights.

This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is mass censorship of the people’s historical flags and monuments, by Democratic and Republican state and local politicians, without the people’s consent.

This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is a mass violation of the human and constitutional rights of all Americans.

Non-consensual censorship is wrong too.

Non-consensual censorship is a violation of constitutional rights too.

Non-consensual censorship is a violation of human rights too.

YOU SHOULD BE TIRED OF IT TOO
