I'm interested in seeing where this goes with Broussard, is he planning on endorsing Jackson? Anyway it's time to start Douglas' tour of New England promoting the Child Labor amendment and launch the Your Future newsletter.

Well then I wonder where he is going with this, maybe it's a scheme of some kind, but I'm not sure what it would be for. I'm intrigued and interested in seeing where this goes.

Official Name: Protection of Equal Protection Demonstrations Act

Nickname: Double Protection Act


Overview: Provides specific protections against efforts to obstruct and/or disrupt demonstrations that primarily advocate the observance of the 14th Amendment


Sponsor: Senator Sofia Fraser (R-NY)
Co-Sponsors: (Here is where you put who else supports the bill, do an OOC poll to figure out what other chars would like to hop on!)




Section 1: Recognizing that while the right to protest as a whole is sacred under the First Amendment, recent events have shown that a particular type of protest, that is protests made with purpose of advocating for the full application of the Fourteenth Amendment, have come under recent, violent and organized attack by forces that seek to undermine the Constitution of the United States of America. However, recognizing that many of those who end up participating in such efforts to undermine the constitution are often victims in their own way, this bill is intended to target the leadership and management of these efforts rather than their rank and file.

Section 2: Defines Equal Protection Demonstrations as public protests/events where their primary purpose is the advocacy for the protection and enforcement of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution.

Section 3: Charges those who organize and/or lead efforts with the intent of obstructing and/or disrupting Equal Protection Demonstrations with an offense under Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241, followed by an investigation into other potential illegal activity by the accused.

(a) To aid in the deployment of adequate investigators/observers, petitions can be filled by citizens concerned that a given Equal Protection Demonstration will or has been obstructed or disrupted, which must be processed by the Department of Justice, which may prioritize on the basis of severity and volume of petitions.

(b) Where obstructive and or/disruptive efforts against Equal Protection Demonstrations are leaderless, participants are to be treated as they were organizing and/or leading efforts.

Section 4: Requires local law enforcement to provide adequate security from obstructive and/or disruptive efforts against Equal Protection Demonstrations.

(a) Failure to provide adequate security for Equal Protection Demonstrations, while having the capacity to do so will result in charges under Title 18, U.S.C., Section 241 against those immediately responsible for the failure to provide adequate security.

(b) To ensure the deployment of adequate security, petitions can be filled by citizens concerned that law enforcement local to a demonstration will or has failed to provide adequate security for equal protection demonstrations, which must be processed by the Department of Justice, which may prioritize on the basis of severity and volume of petitions.

(c) Should for whatever reason, adequate security for Equal Protection Demonstrations is not forthcoming, law enforcement external to the jurisdiction of the Equal Protection Demonstration are permitted, but not required to, provide reinforcement and local law enforcement are required to, within reason, cooperate with such efforts, will failure to do so invoking (a) of this section.

(d) Should regular law enforcement not be adequate security for Equal Protection Demonstrations not be forthcoming from local authorities, national guardsmen must be deployed in sufficient numbers to provide adequate security for Equal Protection Demonstrations.

Section 5: Should any section or subsection be stricken, the rest is assumed to be in force as is reasonable.


This bill is then honorably presented to the Senate for consideration in order to protect organizing efforts to defend our constitution to improve the United States Law and is backed by Senator Sofia Fraser.

Hello, everyone. You may not recognise who I am (unless you're in LOTF) but I am one of the co-ops on this RP. I have been working a bit behind the scenes on events and stuff, but I will be apping here soon. Expect big things to come, spearheaded by my two characters.

Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name: Emazia
Character Name: Frank Turner
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 55
Character Height:
Character Weight:
Character Position/Role/Job: US Military (1925 - 1947), Head of the CIA (1947 - 1957), President of the White Restoration Resistance (1957 - Present)
Appearance: Image
Character State of Origin: Mississippi
Character State of Residence: Mississippi
Character Party Affiliation: Democrat (1925 - 1957), White Peoples' Party (1957 - Present)
Main Strengths: Very well trained in war tactics, charismatic speaker, strong following among segregationists, underground network to escape into, quite well-known, strong media machine.
Main Weaknesses: White Restoration Army connected to many terrorist actions, under investigation by the FBI, often needs to flee and move around from violent elements in the civil rights movement.
Biography: Born in Rankin County, Mississippi, grandson of a wealthy Confederate soldier and the daughter of a powerful landowner, the Turner family was strongly dominant in local politics, with his father being the Congressman of his Congressional district. He grew a wealthy upbringing, dining lavishly, but also having the segregationist ideals of his father. As such, his ideas were very much inbred in him from the beginning. By the time he reached age 18, although he was the second child of his father and not "in line" (as his father put it) to enter Congress, he had still aspired to great things, carving out a hobby for himself reading books on the Confederacy (and becoming very much entrenched in Lost Cause pseudo-history), and then deciding to, like his heroes and his grandfather, join the military. Of course, he wasn't too fond of the "Yankee flag" as he called it in a private conversation with his wife, but nonetheless he was still happy.

And so, with his father's money and connections, off he went to Harvard, pursuing two master's degrees in military strategy and military history (as one degree) and a modern history degree. During his time in Harvard, he was noted as having a "Southern charm" to him, being quite temperate and calm under pressure, along with a sophisticated gait. He had also got quite involved with the student Democrats, but the time was very much unfavourable to Democrats, due to the continued conflict between the Catholics and the Klan within the party, the latter of whom Turner sided with strongly.

After his graduation, while Turner had been in the military reserves during his education, he had fully entered the military, serving actively. His peacetime service was relatively uneventful. He was seen as a good and intelligent strategist, if a bit overconfident. He had risen through the ranks due to his technical ability, focus and diligence, and by the time the Second World War had broken out, he had already risen to the rank of Lieutenant General, and was a full General by the time of the US entry into WWII. He was a primary mover in the European front, specifically in Italy, where he had been in charge of Operation Husky, pushing ahead and across the Italian peninsula, putting in hard work and strategy to ensure that his troops had worked well with the rest of the Allies, and is widely seen by historians today as a key figure in the fall of Italy.

After the war, while he had been idle, President [not-Truman] had approached him with a preposition. He was to become the first Director of the CIA, a new intelligence taskforce. This was done due to both his war hero status following the Second World War and his general skillset. He accepted, enjoying that sort of work personally. He had got to work, assisting the war effort in Korea. While, at the beginning, there were rather severe problems with misinformation, he had quickly cleaned it up with aggressive anti-misinformation efforts, rooting out any double agents and ensuring loyalty within the CIA. This had pushed the CIA as an intelligence service ready for the Cold War. It had also engaged in many domestic efforts - which Turner personally focused on - in order to boost US domestic support for government policy, such as in the Crusade for Freedom.

While Turner at this point had remained non-partisan for 30 years, his old political activism began to wake inside of him again upon the court case Brown v. Board of Education, where he had personally decried the "fall of moral order" in the country to many of his friends, feeling a strong dissatisfaction with it. But regardless, he kept on doing his duty, as he felt that it was an utterly disgusting decision. But to him, the final straw came in the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, where he had written a long and lengthy resignation letter about his disagreements with it and desegregation in general, going off to form the White People's Party and the "non-violent civil disobedience organisation" White Restoration Resistance, along with setting up its many organs such as the States' Rights Broadcast, where he made constant polemics against desegregation, along with preaching social conservative policy more generally, calling homosexuality a "degenerate activity worthy of great punishment" and abortion "the immoral, destructive murder of children pushed by those who want to see America be replaced by Mexicans."

He has also faced controversy for not only his aggressive stances, but also the fact that many people have committed lynchings in his name, such as a recent lynching in his home state that was led by men holding up the flag of the White People's Party and chanting "Turner for President 1960", with many accusing the White Restoration Resistance to be itself a hate group planning on committing genocide against black people, something which Turner has denied.

His wealth (inherited from his family) has garnered him a large platform, with his wealth allowing him to spread his message and gain the support of many segregationists as a folk hero, as many consider him a possible Presidential candidate if there are no segregationist candidates in the general election, with a growing draft movement to push him into the race. Along with that, he has also considered running for Senate in his home state of Mississippi, or perhaps the gubernatorial election later this year...

Biography: Born in Rankin County, Mississippi, grandson of a wealthy Confederate soldier and the daughter of a powerful landowner, the Turner family was strongly dominant in local politics, with his father being the Congressman of his Congressional district. He grew a wealthy upbringing, dining lavishly, but also having the segregationist ideals of his father. As such, his ideas were very much inbred in him from the beginning. By the time he reached age 18, although he was the second child of his father and not "in line" (as his father put it) to enter Congress, he had still aspired to great things, carving out a hobby for himself reading books on the Confederacy (and becoming very much entrenched in Lost Cause pseudo-history), and then deciding to, like his heroes and his grandfather, join the military. Of course, he wasn't too fond of the "Yankee flag" as he called it in a private conversation with his wife, but nonetheless he was still happy.

And so, with his father's money and connections, off he went to Harvard, pursuing two master's degrees in military strategy and military history (as one degree) and a modern history degree. During his time in Harvard, he was noted as having a "Southern charm" to him, being quite temperate and calm under pressure, along with a sophisticated gait. He had also got quite involved with the student Democrats, but the time was very much unfavourable to Democrats, due to the continued conflict between the Catholics and the Klan within the party, the latter of whom Turner sided with strongly.

After his graduation, while Turner had been in the military reserves during his education, he had fully entered the military, serving actively. His peacetime service was relatively uneventful. He was seen as a good and intelligent strategist, if a bit overconfident. He had risen through the ranks due to his technical ability, focus and diligence, and by the time the Second World War had broken out, he had already risen to the rank of Lieutenant General, and was a full General by the time of the US entry into WWII. He was a primary mover in the European front, specifically in Italy, where he had been in charge of Operation Husky, pushing ahead and across the Italian peninsula, putting in hard work and strategy to ensure that his troops had worked well with the rest of the Allies, and is widely seen by historians today as a key figure in the fall of Italy.

After the war, while he had been idle, President [not-Truman] had approached him with a preposition. He was to become the first Director of the CIA, a new intelligence taskforce. This was done due to both his war hero status following the Second World War and his general skillset. He accepted, enjoying that sort of work personally. He had got to work, assisting the war effort in Korea. While, at the beginning, there were rather severe problems with misinformation, he had quickly cleaned it up with aggressive anti-misinformation efforts, rooting out any double agents and ensuring loyalty within the CIA. This had pushed the CIA as an intelligence service ready for the Cold War. It had also engaged in many domestic efforts - which Turner personally focused on - in order to boost US domestic support for government policy, such as in the Crusade for Freedom.

While Turner at this point had remained non-partisan for 30 years, his old political activism began to wake inside of him again upon the court case Brown v. Board of Education, where he had personally decried the "fall of moral order" in the country to many of his friends, feeling a strong dissatisfaction with it. But regardless, he kept on doing his duty, as he felt that it was an utterly disgusting decision. But to him, the final straw came in the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, where he had written a long and lengthy resignation letter about his disagreements with it and desegregation in general, going off to form the White People's Party and the "non-violent civil disobedience organisation" White Restoration Resistance, along with setting up its many organs such as the States' Rights Broadcast, where he made constant polemics against desegregation, along with preaching social conservative policy more generally, calling homosexuality a "degenerate activity worthy of great punishment" and abortion "the immoral, destructive murder of children pushed by those who want to see America be replaced by Mexicans."

His wealth (inherited from his family) has garnered him a large platform, with his wealth allowing him to spread his message and gain the support of many segregationists as a folk hero, as many consider him a possible Presidential candidate if there are no segregationist candidates in the general election, with a growing draft movement to push him into the race. Along with that, he has also considered running for Senate in his home state of Mississippi, or perhaps the gubernatorial election later this year...

He has also faced controversy for not only his aggressive stances, but also the fact that many people have committed lynchings in his name, such as a recent lynching in his home state that was led by men holding up the flag of the White People's Party and chanting "Turner for President 1960", with many accusing the White Restoration Resistance to be itself a hate group planning on committing genocide against black people, something which Turner has denied.

I need a break after reading Sharp's speech and now I see this, I can't begin to wonder what Turner's reaction to things like the New Orleans protest or the lynching of Gary Guidry would have been. But reading through the biography I think he and Claiborne could have been friends if Turner hadn't been too political, they have quite a few things in common at least at a first glance. Though I'm not sure what their relationship status would be now. Anyway I'll have a speech for Douglas today or tomorrow.

One thing and please correct me if I am wrong, I believe the Director of the CIA is appointed by the president and if that is the case I would highly doubt President Davis would keep a southern democrat from a confederate family in that position (honestly I'm on the fence whether President Carry Hamond [not-Truman] would appoint you to such position in the first place)
