"Sacred to the memory of William Morgan, a native of Virginia, a captain in the war of 1812, a respectable citizen of Batavia, and a martyr to the freedom of writing, printing and speaking in truth. He was abducted from near this spot in the year of 1826, by Free-Masons and murdered for revealing the secrets of their order. The court records of Genesse County, and files of the Batavia Advocate kept in the recorder's office contain the history of the events that caused the erection of this monument."

Bummer, he should have kept his promise.
I am going to guess he spoke out on something other than murder or treason.
Besides, back when folks were killed for a lot less.
Hell they still are, you just do not hear about it as much.

A great man said better than I can:


"Ladies and gentlemen, the very word secrecy is repugnant, in a free and open society, and we are as a people, inherently and historically, opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating it's arbitrary restrictions. Even today there is little value in ensuring the survival of our nation, if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious who wish to expand it's meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit, to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my administration whether his rank as high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight, as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes, or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know. For we are opposed, around the world, by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy, that relies primarily on covet means for expanding it's fear of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation, instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night, instead of armies by day, It is a system which has conscripted, vast material and human resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. It's mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned. No rumor is printed. No secret is revealed. No president should fear public scrutiny of his program. Because from that scrutiny comes understanding. And from that understanding comes support or opposition, and both are necessary. I am not asking your newspaper to support an administration.. But I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people.. For I have complete confidence in the response and the dedication of our citizens when they are fully informed. I not only could not stifle controversy from your readers I welcome it. This administration intends to be candid about its errors. For as a wise man once said, "an error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it". We intend to accept full responsibility for our errors and we expect you to point them out when we miss them. Without debate without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed. And no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the first amendment, the only business in America specifically protected by the constitution, not primarily to amuse or entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and sentimental, not to simply give the public what it wants, but to inform, to arouse, and to reflect to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mould, and educate and sometimes even anger public opinion. This means greater coverage and analysis of international news, for it is no longer far away and foreign, but close at hand and local.. it means greater attention to improved attention to greater understanding of the news, as well as improved transmission, and it means finally, the government at all levels, must meet its obligation, to provide you with it's possible information, outside the narrowest limits of national security. And so it is to the printing press, to the recorder of man's deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the carrier of his news, that we look for strength, and his assistance, confident that with your help, Man will be what he was born to be.. Free and independent."
- JFK

And that's all I have to say about that!

Too bad he was calling for more secrecy from the press. It helps to actually read the entirety of his 'The President and the Press' speech.

Ah yes, the Captain Morgan affair. Along with Propaganda Due and whats-his-face the prostitute killer in old England.

Killing someone would automatically and forever nullify the killer from being a Freemason.

Morgan's body was never found, btw. But I digress.

I think the story of Morgan is probably best tempered with the story of the Forget-Me-Not worn by Freemasons in Germany in WWII. At least until they were put into gas chambers by the thousands simply because they were masons.

Or perhaps the torment of Jacques de Molay as he was slowly roasted at the stake, the flesh of his legs blackened while his conscious mind remained alive screaming in agony.

I would say that mathematically our record is quite good when it comes to murder. Since no one who is a murderer can become a Freemason, and no Freemason can commit murder...

Was this the guy who had Marilyn Monroe shacked up in the Lincoln Bedroom? Because I'm a little confused.

Was this the same guy whose little sister was surgically lobotomized and sent away to an institution because she was a little strange in her mannerisms and couldn't quite do a curtsy before Her Majesty?




"We went through the top of the head, I think she was awake. She had a mild tranquilizer. I made a surgical incision in the brain through the skull. It was near the front. It was on both sides. We just made a small incision, no more than an inch." The instrument Dr. Watts used looked like a butter knife. He swung it up and down to cut brain tissue. "We put an instrument inside," he said. As Dr. Watts cut, Dr. Freeman put questions to Rosemary. For example, he asked her to recite the Lord's Prayer or sing "God Bless America" or count backwards. ... "We made an estimate on how far to cut based on how she responded." ... When she began to become incoherent, they stopped. - James Watts, who assisted in the lobotomy.





...or as daddy Joseph put it to the headmaster of St. Colleta's where sis was shipped off to after the botch operation:



"I am still very grateful for your help. After all, the solution of Rosemary's problem has been a major factor in the ability of all the Kennedys to go about their life's work and to try to do it as well as they can."



Maybe JFK said it best himself:




“After visiting these two places (Berchtesgaden and the Eagle's lair on Obersalzberg) you can easily see how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country, which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”

Possibly, good ol Captain Morgan and his publisher staged the whole affair for the sake of book sales and the good captain changed his name, shaved his beard, and moved to Canada. But then again, following the money never seems to work. Never mind. I just wonder, did they give him the first, second, or third penalty? Hmmm.

This story has been verified many times over.


The man's gravestone speaks for itself.

That said, the man earlier was correct. Morgan should have kept his mouth shut. He took the oaths as a grown man standing on his own two feet. I DO NOT condone murder for anything other than self defense in extreme circumstances. So while they were just holding up to their end of the bargain (which Morgan assuredly did not) it is not a prime example of light and truth....

Oh yeah we're all about truth. And murdering those who reveal what we keep hidden.

For a good mental image, try to imagine if William Morgan were alive today and turned on MTV for the first time....

In reality, he didn't. Morgan was never actually a Mason...he didn't take any oaths, and had not been initiated. This was how it was discovered that he had been conning the local lodge members.

Didn't this fiasco spark the beginning of the Shriners? I haven't seen the history channel special, but someone was telling me that program contributed the Shriners to a PR stunt in response to the negative press after this murder?

I don't know, but that is interesting indeed.
I just don't get the whole deal of worrying about the Morgan Affair anyway. It was a few guy from one lodge, and maybe Morgan was a real dick in addition to being a loud mouth. In other words, maybe he needed killin. A defense strategy Ron White and I agree on.

And who benefitted from the defeat of the Axis Powers in WWII: the Jews and the Freemasons.
Take a look at the flag of Occupied East Germany after the war:

flagspot.net...

No Freemason can commit murder?
Tell that to the 300,000 dead Japanese of Hiroshima and Nagasaki along the 33rd parallel after the 33rd President of the USA, Freemason Truman nuked them!!

Your organisation will be exposed.

I welcome any attempts to "expose" Freemasonry. We are hardly hidden. Our buildings, members and meetings are clearly exposed in any town in America.

It seems crazy that the Masons Killed Morgan over the book he wrote, after all its still available isn't it? I read it a while back. Maybe in those days it was much more serious offence.

I think in those days getting dealt death was just a simpler process. Honor was a big deal back then, something people took a lot more seriously than they do today......

Any way, I agree with netdude on this one... Hehe, maybe he just needed killin.

There are still a few folks like that today.

When you do a search for Captain Morgan mostly what you come up with is Captain Morgan Rum which I guess is what Garth Brooks was talking about in his song - Two Pina Coladas-

Pina Colada recipe:
3 oz light rum
3 tbsp coconut cream
3 tbspcrushed pineapples blended fast with chipped ice served with a straw. Sounds pretty good.

So bring me two pina coladas, I want one for each hand, lets set sail with Captain Morgan oh and never leave dry land, troubles I've forgot them, I've buried them in the sand, so bring me to pina coladas, she said good bye to her good timin man.

I always think of the Murdered Captain Morgan when I hear it.

Somebody has to bring up the 800 lb gorilla in the room.

So, do you have a little Captain in you?

Groan.

Sorry.
