BUSTED: Maine town manager and former Trump campaign chair called Islam ‘the scourge of Western civilization’

Published

on

The town manager of Jackman, Maine has been exposed for “shockingly racist” views, the Bangor Daily News reported Friday.

Tom Kawcynski, 37, is the founder of the group New Albion, which believes Islam is “the scourge of Western civilization” and supports “voluntary” racial segregation.

Albion is an ancient Greek word for Britain.

“I would say unequivocally that I see Islam as fundamentally incompatible with Western civilization,” Healy stated, while denying he is racist.

“Wow,” American Civil Liberties Union of Maine spokesperson Rachel Healy charged. “That’s shockingly racist.”

Kawczynski started his job in June, after moving from New Hampshire, where he had served as the Lisbon town chair for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

During “multiple interviews” during the hiring process, Kawczynski said his racial views never came up. Kawczynski beat out 13 other applicants for the job of town manager.

Kawczynski is an active user on the alternative social media site Gab, which Salon labeled “Twitter for racists” and which The Guardian described as “the hate-filled echo chamber of racism and conspiracy theories.”

“I also have a two phase solution for #Dreamers,” Kawcynski recently posted. “1) Round them up. 2) Send them back.”

Kawczynski admitted a “natural overlap” between his leadership of New Albion and his public service for the town of Jackman.

“It is something that I am trying to integrate in the sense that I’m trying to develop our community,” he said. “But I do not make that relationship explicit.”

Kawczynski even created a flag for his New Albion organization.

Three Jackman selectmen did not return the Bangor Daily News requests for comment.

“The hiring process included the Board as well as six citizens who went to great lengths in reviewing each application,” Jackman said in a press release praising Kawcynski’s hiring.

On Tuesday, the Daily Mail reported that Anthony Edwards has filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Cincinnati and three police officers after he and his real estate agent, Jerry Isham, were handcuffed and detained at gunpoint last year while touring an open house.

The police were summoned by Thomas Branigan, a retired police officer living next door, who called 911 to report them as home invaders and said they had "forced entry" into the house. He later admitted he did not have a view of the door at the time.

Rob Reiner has the perfect plan for the GOP and Trump’s ‘N-word tapes’ from ‘The Apprentice’

Published

on

For years, there have been rumors about the existence of unbroadcast tapes from NBC's "The Apprentice" that are said to document Donald Trump using the N-word.

Actor Tom Arnold has been pushing the idea.

While conventional wisdom may once of held that such a release would be a political catastrophe for a president, the release could actually help Trump in his 2020 re-election campaign, director Rob Reiner argued on Tuesday.

"I’ve heard there are tapes of Trump using the N-word during his time on The Apprentice. Based on the GOP’s support of his racism, they should ask producer Mark Burnett to release the tapes to boost the support of his base," Reiner tweeted.
