THE DANTICLEER has not been DEFUNDED by the powers-that-be at the PULASKI CITIZEN.

I’ve watched more television news in the past few weeks than I have in years. And (emotionally) I’m in a dark and ugly place.

Violence, looting, beatings and murder enabled and condoned by useless politicians who, like pigs, root through the seditious slop for any scrap of power and control they can uncover; [my apologies to pigs].

No official is above suspicion, as “Peaceful Protest” becomes OXYMORON illustrated.

Into the mix comes a report that “BIG CABLE” is removing from its offerings the multi-award-winning film GONE WITH THE WIND.

Hearing the news, I pondered for quite some time what might be the REAL reason for this decision (while claiming it’s ANOTHER).

Remembering a statement from the book I believe also made it to film, I turned through my almost-a-First Edition and went looking for the quote. I found it on page 193. This sentiment could be applied to much of what I’ve been seeing on TV:

“What most people don’t seem to realize is that there is just as much money to be made out of the wreckage of a civilization as from the upbuilding of one.”

The quote is attributed to one Rhett Butler.

The enablers of the anarchists attempting to destroy our country CANNOT have US listening to candor like that!

OR it could be that those running the cable companies are just idiots.

In either case it might be a good idea for holders of GWTW (in book and/or video format) to lock their copies away in their well-stocked gun safes “just in case.”

Only GOD knows what “THEY” will do next.

If you are a regular consumer of the PULASKI CITIZEN, you likely saw the photo and front-page story headlined: “Peaceful Protesters Gather on the Square” from last week’s (10 June 2020) edition.

In the June 3, 2020, edition of the CITIZEN, Pulaski City Administrator Terry Harrison was quoted as saying, “...protests on the Square in downtown Pulaski, located on city property, would require the authorization of a parade permit due to the city’s ‘very restrictive parade ordinance.’”

I was told that the protesters cited above did NOT have a parade permit. (If my information is inaccurate, I apologize in advance).

I say that, only to say this, the lack of a permit in this case sets a BAD PRECEDENT that other groups might well attempt to exploit later on.

It would seem that from a legal perspective, dotting every “i” and crossing every “t” is an imperative in the volatile times in which we live.

Also, in reference to “the city’s very restrictive parade ordinance,” (and based on a Jan. 2, 1986, THE GILES FREE PRESS article), covering one’s face while demonstrating is also forbidden.

The last word I had was that a “peaceful protest” was scheduled for June 6 at the Pulaski Recreation Center, not on the Square.

It would also seem that (in the name of PUBLIC SAFETY) the PUBLIC should be informed of any future planned demonstrations.   

ALARMEST “FEAR MONGERING?” Not in today’s America.

Furthermore, I have learned that a Pulaski resident is calling upon our local officials to remove the SAM DAVIS MONUMENT from its “suppressive place” on the Pulaski Square.

An estimated 10,000 people saw this monument dedicated Oct. 11, 1906.

It was paid for with private funds.

And placed with permission granted by both the Pulaski Board of Mayor and Aldermen [Oct. 12, 1905] and the (then-called) Giles County Quarterly Court [Jan. 1, 1906].

It (and those like it) fall under the provisions of the “TENNESSEE HERITAGE PROTECTION ACT of 2013” signed into law by Gov. Bill Haslam April 18, 2013; with Beth Harwell, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Ron Ramsey, Speaker of the Senate.

I would think that we might soon find out if this ACT is worth the paper it’s printed on.
