Take five things you say that sound terrible, remove them from context as much as possible, and paint a picture of a person’s life designed to make people hate and defame you. That’s what was done to me personally today and to New Albion as a whole.
I separate my personal cultural ambitions from my professional career, but some people are trying to use my efforts to promote certain ideas to destroy my ability to provide for myself and my wife. It has actually been amazing to see how quickly a media frenzy descends upon a small town. Losing our ambulance didn’t matter to the press. Losing our health center wasn’t worth space in the paper. But the whole media is descending upon Jackman, Maine because I have some very radical ideas.
I think Islam, a religion that explicitly espouses no separation between church and state and whose founder married a prepubescent girl, doesn’t fit well with the western idea of free expression and personal liberty for all peoples.
I think we should honor western civilization, the idea we build upon the inheritance of our ancestors, and use those ideals as foundation, but that was considered a sin.
But my real transgression, I believe, was suggesting white people should be proud of who they are. I love who I am, and believe everyone should feel the same about their own ethnic heritage. For that, there are those who would destroy me.
Never mind the inconvenient fact that I’ve never said a cross word about any minority, and I think ALL people should be proud of their heritage and backgrounds. That wasn’t fit to print. Because that would make me reasonable, and the first rule of media today is anyone who doesn’t conform to the politically correct views must be made into some evil caricature of a human being.
They drown out the voice who speaks honestly in response, which today happens to be my own, but could be anyone else. They retain control of the narrative, refusing to even discuss ideas of what might be better, by making sure everyone is so afraid to speak openly and honestly that people just hide. It’s un-American and totalitarian, but they count on people not resisting.
So, I will resist. I will say what #NewAlbion is about. We are a cultural movement who believes northern New England can do better than PC garbage. Let’s decide what is good, for all of us, and let’s take care of ourselves. Washington won’t. Democrats won’t. Republicans won’t. But maybe we can, when we take care of our neighbors like friends and family. Protect nature, restore culture, honor heritage, consider our legacy, and work in our communities. Our family deserves that.
But that’s not what brought you here, most likely. You came here to see the bad man who is the villain. I can’t be the guy who works long nights to save health care for sick old people in a small town best known for being a truck stop on the way to Quebec. I can’t be someone who worked to help everyone in my community, including all backgrounds, to get help when they need it. Why: Because I have ideas that don’t fit the narrative and dare to express them.
So we will see what happens next. I don’t know, and even though my life hangs in the balance, my father taught me to be strong and to be honest. I will honor his memory by being myself and defending my ideas, my town, and the people for whom I offer all I have.
For those who read all the way through, I hope you consider my words…everything I’ve written below…and draw your own conclusions. I don’t expect everyone to agree…I welcome reasoned argument…but understand I am a real person just offering the best I can offer and being strong enough to do it without hiding behind some pseudonym.
If we don’t have free speech in America, then does anything else work? You tell me.
