Now that the dust is settling, I will share with you that I had a pretty good idea things would turn out how they did. I had spoken with the Town Attorney earlier in the weekend, and the Select Board and I shared the desire to wrap things up neatly.
Despite how some people view me there, I still very much like Jackman. I think it improbable we stay in town much past when the weather makes moving practical, but it’s a great place that didn’t deserve to be degraded by the national press. A part of the story which was really missed in all the insults heaped upon me is how many of the so-called tolerant people had every slur in the book to launch at the rural folk up here who make a living off their labor. Dana and I were threatened many times.
An interesting thing in the politically correct environment of today is there are still groups about which you can pass judgment. Whites, Christians, and men lead the way. I guess that means I’m screwed, but I know there are others too whom it is fashionable to slur. Whatever opinions I’ve expressed, I’ve always kept it civil. People deserve respect.
But now I have to rebuild my life, and that will be a challenge. Given how the media paints me, there’s every incentive for me to evolve into the ghastly being they make me sound like, and there even is a market for that. But, I’m going to try to do something harder and tread this path of pushing #WhiteCivilRights. It is a simple, profound, and universally accessible idea that just says whatever rules apply to other races should also be there for whites.
I hope it expands beyond me. I get that the fact I like to mix it up on social media and that I have a dark sense of humor and hang out with some unsavory folks makes me a lousy messenger for the masses. I also realize the powers that be are not about to let me just talk about ideas on the merit, because they love using accusations as a way to discredit ideas without looking at their intrinsic validity. But at least my infamy allows me to start discussions, and I hear from all you still in hiding who like that someone is out there speaking up.
If this is your first time here, all I can say is I’m not the person you’ve read me to be. If you want to know more, and you’re not going to be a dick about it, then find me on Gab or send me an e-mail.
Now that I am officially discharged from my formal responsibilities, I can express myself considerably more freely. If enough good questions come in, I’ll offer answers in a next mailbag type post.
