PRESIDENT@CLEMSON.EDU

Dr. Clements,

Why are you allowing Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott to speak at Clemson University graduation ceremonies?

Both would be perfectly suitable to speak at Clemson—in the manner of Robert Spencer or Al Sharpton.

Neither is suitable to speak at any commencement ceremonies.

Both Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott are neocon politicians.

Both Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott are pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liars—and neither has any business brainwashing impressionable college graduates, any more than any liberal politicians do.

Neocons and liberals are the same.

I ask you not to pander to Nimrata Randhawa Haley or Tim Scott.

And I cordially invite you to sign my online petition to President Trump to remove Nimrata Randhawa Haley from his cabinet.

Dr. Clements, I am an alumnus of Auburn University—I attended Auburn my first year of college.

I’ve watched Auburn play Clemson in epic football clashes—Clemson is a beloved rival of Auburn for which Auburn has tremendous admiration.

And if I were you, I would not be proud that Nimrata Randhawa Haley is an alumnus of Clemson University—I would be ashamed of that.

I would keep that under wraps—the last thing I would do is allow that diabolical politician to give a commencement speech to Clemson graduates.

Dr. Clements, our country is going to hell.

And it is both neocon and liberal politicians who are driving it to hell.

And Nimrata Randhawa Haley is the worst of them all—and the most dangerous to our country and our world.

Please rescind your invitation to Nimrata Randhawa Haley and Tim Scott to speak at Clemson University commencement ceremonies.

And sign my online petition to President Trump to remove the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley from his cabinet—if you care about our country at all.

STOP PANDERING TO MITCH LANDRIEU—AND SIGN THIS PETITION IF YOU WANT TO AVERT A DISASTER

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were the only Republican or Democratic presidential candidates in 2016 who were not suitable to be President of the United States—at all.

I have been an independent American voter since 2003.  Did you know that independent and third party voters are prohibited by law from voting in any Democratic or Republican primary elections in most U.S. states—because most U.S. states are closed primary states?  Did you know that if we independent and third party voters would not have been prohibited by law from voting in the Democratic or Republican primaries in most U.S. states in 2016, we could have prevented Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton from being elected President of the United States?  Did you know that if you would have voted for Bernie Sanders, instead of Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 Democratic primaries, you could have prevented Donald Trump from being elected President of the United States—and that you are more responsible for Donald Trump’s presidency than those who voted for him in the 2016 Republican primaries?

Though I first registered with the Republican Party, I voted for Ross Perot in 1992, at age 26—my first presidential vote was very late, but I have never regretted my choice.  And I have always regretted that not enough of my fellow American voters chose to vote for Ross Perot, rather than Bill Clinton or George H.W. Bush—because they thought an independent candidate couldn’t win.  (Of course he couldn’t win if you didn’t vote for him!)

There were no independent presidential candidates on the ballot, at all, in 2012—only third party candidates.  So I voted for Barack Obama—because I truly believed he was the lesser of two evils, and that I truly had to choose the lesser of two evils, in the first place.  And I have regretted that decision, ever since election night that year, when Barack Obama blindsided us with his LGBTQ rainbow bouquet.

And there were no independent presidential candidates on the ballot in 2016 either—only third party candidates.  And the only one of those parties whose platforms I completely dug was, ironically, the Reform Party—the party founded by Ross Perot supporters in 1995.  Yet the views of the presidential candidate for the Reform Party were in complete opposition to the views of the party he was supposed to represent.

So I cast a write-in vote for myself, Scott W. Mayo, as an independent presidential candidate in 2016—because that was the only way I could vote my conscience.

What are you going to do in 2020?

In 2020, you are likely to be faced with a choice between Mitch Landrieu and Donald Trump—or Mitch Landrieu and Nimrata Randhawa Haley.

And if you are fortunate enough to be stuck with Donald Trump for another four years—a far lesser evil than Mitch Landrieu—what are you going to do in 2024, when you are faced with a choice between any Democrat and Nimrata Randhawa Haley?

You can prevent this nightmare scenario by first ceasing and desisting your pandering to Mitch Landrieu and Nimrata Randhawa Haley.

They are both pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liars—and if you pander to either of them, you are setting your country and yourself up for a nightmare scenario far worse than the nightmare scenario in which your country and yourself are currently existing.

Stop pandering to Mitch Landrieu—and sign this petition if you want to avert a disaster:

A DIFFERENT APPROACH

—Original Message—

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.

ONLY YOU CAN STOP “STANDING WITH ISRAEL,” AND START STANDING FOR AMERICA INSTEAD

Zionism is Jewish nationalism.

When you “stand with Israel,” you support Jewish nationalism.

Do you remember how you felt when watching news footage of the tragedy that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia last year?

That tragedy was not caused by White nationalists, that tragedy was caused by Mike Signer, the White Democratic mayor of Charlottesville, and Wes Bellamy, the Black Democratic vice mayor of Charlottesville—and ultimately by the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley.

And President Trump was not lying when he said there were some very fine people there defending their historical monument against two local despots—there were.

But there were allegedly some White nationalists there too—and do you remember how you felt about those alleged White nationalists?

My mother once said the Nazi Germans were selfish—and that was true, to some extent.

The Nazi (National Socialist) Party of Germany combined socialism with German nationalism.

The Nazi Germans were selfish, in the sense that all that mattered to them was Germany.

But the Nazi Germans’ ideology and agenda were borrowed from Zionist Jews in Germany.

And it was Zionism—Jewish nationalism—that contributed, at least in part, to the rise of German nationalism, in the first place.

Zionist Jews are selfish too.

Zionist Jews only care about Jewry—the Jewish population of the world.

Understand—Zionism has nothing to do with the Jewish religion of Judaism.

Zionism has everything to do with Jews, as an ancestral group—most Zionist Jews are irreligious, and many of them are antireligious.  

Most Zionist Jews are not practitioners of the Jewish faith—they are secular humanists, many of whom proudly consider themselves atheists.

Nationalism is not necessarily a negative ideal—in fact, it is always understandable, and it is sometimes arguably necessary.

There are White nationalists in the United States today, and there are Black nationalists in the United States today—and both groups have valid concerns.

The German nationalists had valid concerns too—and so did the Jewish nationalists.

As a citizen of the United States, you would probably not mind if White nationalists had their own nation somewhere else.

As a citizen of the United States, you would probably not mind if Black nationalists had their own nation somewhere else.

But what if your government established and supported a White-nationalist nation somewhere else—with your money?

What if your government established and supported a Black-nationalist nation somewhere else—with your money?

You wouldn’t like that a bit, would you?

Well, your government established a Jewish-nationalist state somewhere else, in 1948—with your money.

And your government supports this Jewish-nationalist state somewhere else today—with your money.

When you “stand with Israel,” you support your government’s support of a Jewish-nationalist state—with your money, but without your understanding of what you are supporting.

When you “stand with Israel,” you support your government’s support of a Zionist state—with your money, but without your understanding of what you are supporting.

Every year, your United States government donates billions of your tax dollars to support a foreign government that was illegally established, in the first place.

Every year, your United States government spends billions more of your tax dollars on weapons to maintain this foreign government’s brutal occupation of a land that never belonged to it—a brutal subjugation, and even genocide, of the indigenous people of Palestine, by Jews of Eastern European and Turkish descent—not Palestinian descent.

That’s right, just as the Israel of today is not the Israel of Biblical times, the Israelis are not the Israelites.

Almost two thousand years ago, most Jews in the Holy Land left the Holy Land.  And they left it because of persecution by Romans—not Arabs.

These Jews migrated to Turkey and Eastern Europe—where they interbred with Turkish and Eastern European Gentiles for so many centuries that they were barely Jewish, in the end.

But almost two thousand years later, in the late Nineteenth century, an Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jew in Germany, by the name of Theodor Herzl, started a Jewish-nationalist movement—the Zionist movement.

The Jewish nationalists—Zionists—decided to establish a purely Jewish state in Palestine.

It didn’t matter to these Jewish nationalists that the land of Palestine—the Holy Land—had been populated primarily by Christian and Muslim Arabs for over 1300 years—since most of the original Jews had left that land almost two thousand years before.

And these Jewish nationalists—wealthy, powerful Jews, not poor Jews in ghettos—forced the hands of a majority of United Nations member states to forcibly establish their Zionist State, their Modern State of Israel, in Palestine in 1948.

And your country, the United States of America, was this Zionist State’s primary supporter then—and is still this Zionist State’s primary supporter now.

Every year, billions of your tax dollars—that could be used to help the American people—are diverted to the Jewish State of Israel, to hurt the Palestinian people instead.

And only you can stop your government from placing the demands of the Israeli government above the needs of the American people.

Only you can stop “standing with Israel,” and start standing for America instead.

HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY: ITS TRUE PURPOSE

Palestinian laborers wait to cross an Israeli checkpoint as they return to their homes after a day’s work in the Jewish state in 2010 near the village of Ni’ilin in the West Bank

Israeli forces, including soldiers disguised as Palestinians, violently arrest a Palestinian child in occupied Jerusalem on October 24, 2014.

WHY?

“Happy Birthday to these beautiful ladies.  Thank you for coming to NYC to celebrate!  Here’s to many more years of love and laughter!”

 

As aforementioned, I have no Twitter account—though I have been keeping an eye on the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley, of course.  And I’m always amazed how shocked White liberals are when they see the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley with all her bourgeois White friends.

These well-intentioned, though highly misinformed and misguided individuals seriously believe that when the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley called for the censorship of a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial monument on the grounds of the State Capitol in Columbia, South Carolina, on June 22, 2015 (not from the Capitol itself—a Confederate battle flag had been removed from the Capitol itself in 2000)—then issued an executive order for the censorship of that historical flag, on July 9, 2015, without the consent of South Carolinians, of all races and ethnicities, to whom that historical flag belonged—the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley did this to honor the nine Black Americans who had been murdered by Dylann Roof in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17, 2015.

You well-intentioned, though highly misguided and misinformed White Americans are so sadly mistaken.  And here is the proof.  Look at it.

“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…”

Now, why do you think she did it?  Why do you think the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley exploited the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof?  Why do you think the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley started a campaign of cultural genocide against the American South?  Why do you think the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley, a radically right-wing, Tea Party, Zionist, neocon, Republican politician with an “A+” rating from the NRA, started a dangerous practice of state and local politicians—the overwhelming majority of whom are radically right-wing, Tea Party, Zionist, neocon Republicans with high marks from the NRA, just like her—censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments, without their constituents’ consent?  Why do you think the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley began this mass infringement on the First-Amendment right to freedom of speech of all Southern Americans, of all races and ethnicities?   Why do you think the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley set in motion this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America that is destructive to the United States of America?

SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO TWEET ABOUT RIGHTS, FREEDOMS, OR CHRISTIANITY

“Religious freedom is one of our most precious rights, one that should be enjoyed by all no matter where they are born.  The Government of China banning online sales of the Bible is an assault on their citizens’ freedoms & on Christianity…”

ANYONE CAN CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN—AND ANYONE CAN CLAIM TO BE AN AMERICAN

NEOCONSERVATISM AND LIBERALISM BEST BE AVOIDED—BY ALL OF US

“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…”

Liberals are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

Neocons are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

All Republican public officials today, elected and appointed, are politicians.

And all Republican politicians today, elected and appointed, are neocon politicians.

All Democratic public officials today, elected and appointed, are politicians.

And all Democratic politicians today, elected and appointed, are liberal politicians.

The Republican Party has been completely overtaken by neocons since June 22, 2015.

The Democratic Party has been completely overtaken by liberals since November 22, 1963.

Neocon politicians misrepresent themselves as conservatives.

Liberal politicians misrepresent themselves as progressives.

Though there is a difference between conservatives and progressives—so that a person can be a conservative progressive, or a progressive conservative—there is no difference between neocons and liberals.

A person cannot be a neocon liberal or a liberal neocon—because neocons and liberals are the same.

Neocons are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

Liberals are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

The Democratic Party has been completely overtaken by liberals since November 22, 1963—and there is not likely any hope that the Democratic Party can be reformed.

Therefore, all Democratic voters best abandon the Democratic Party.

The Republican Party has been completely overtaken by neocons since June 22, 2015—and there is not likely any hope that the Republican Party can be reformed.

Therefore, all Republican voters best abandon the Republican Party.

This post goes all over the place because my mind does, at this moment.

But if there is a point I would like to be taken from this post, it is this:

Neoconservatism and liberalism are the same.  Neocon politicians and liberal politicians are the same.  Neocons and liberals are ignorant—and neocon and liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons and liberals. Thus neoconservatism and liberalism best be avoided—by all of us.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL MONUMENTS, FROM SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A POLITICIAN

Mitch Landrieu is nothing but a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

Here is the truth about Confederate memorial monuments, from someone who is not a politician:

The Reconstruction was nothing of the sort.  It was a brutal occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America, in which all citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America—of all races and ethnicities—were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years.

From 1865 to 1877, Southern women were raped, Southern men were murdered, and Southern families were displaced—on a constant basis—by Union troops and Union League terrorists.

Over 50,000 Southern civilians, of all races and ethnicities, died of exposure and starvation during the Civil War, and the Reconstruction—the Union occupation which followed the Civil War.

Needless to say, one of the constitutional rights which the Southern American people were denied during the Reconstruction was their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech. 

Because the United States won the war, Union citizens were immediately able to build memorial monuments to their war dead—and had enough money to do so.

But the citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were prohibited from building memorial monuments to their war dead, for twelve years, because they were denied their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech for twelve years.

Citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were only able to build monuments to their war dead after the Reconstruction ended in 1877.

Yet even then, they had to raise the money to build them—and this took decades.

This is why the overwhelming majority of Confederate memorial monuments were built in the late Nineteenth century and early Twentieth century.

And they were not built to pretend that the South had actually won the war, or to intimidate Black Southerners—many Black Southerners attended the ceremonies at which these memorial monuments to the Confederate war dead were presented.  Because the Confederate war dead included many Black Confederate soldiers and sailors who had proudly served the Confederate States of America, of their own free will.

The monuments were not Confederate-era monuments—because they were built after the United States of America defeated the Confederate States of America, and after the brutal Union occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America finally ended.

When Mitch Landrieu says he will replace the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis with an American flag—he knows very well that a flag of the Confederate States of America is just as much an American flag as a flag of the United States of America.

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and Mitch Landrieu knows this.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu did not call for the removal of four Confederate memorial monuments until June 24, 2015—the same day that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley censored all Confederate flags from Confederate memorial monuments on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol, and the same day that Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s historical flags displays.

And on June 22, 2015, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley called for the censorship of a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial monument on the grounds of the South Carolina State Capitol—in a speech in which she blamed a mass murder committed in Charleston, South Carolina, on a historical American flag in Columbia, South Carolina.

The overwhelming majority of the state and local politicians who are censoring their constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without their constituents’ consent, are actually Republicans—following the lead of Republican Nikki Haley.

And Democrats like Mitch Landrieu are simply riding this Republican bandwagon for the same reason Republican Nikki Haley got the bandwagon rolling, in the first place—it gives them a shot at the House of Representatives, the Senate, and even the Presidency.

The dismantled Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans must be restored, if possible.  And if this is not possible, they must be left in exactly the same state that Mitch Landrieu has left them, as a warning—to all people—of the politicians and their lies.
