The White supremacist town manager of Jackman, Maine wants people who are not part of “Western civilization” to stay away from the city, the Bangor Daily News. He’s also promoting the myth that White supremacists are not necessarily racist.
“We are pro-white without being anti-other groups in terms of their racial identity. But we … oppose the idea of bringing people in from the outside that come from different cultures,” Tom Kawczynski, the city manager, said about his group named New Albion. “I would say unequivocally that I see Islam as fundamentally incompatible with Western civilization,” he added.
Kawczynski, a 37-year-old Arizona native, started New Albion and his town manager position about a year ago after moving to Maine from New Hampshire. His group is made up of a “few dozen” like-minded people across Maine who insist that New Albion is not a White nationalist organization. Their aim is to promote “European heritage” in northern New England. That language is really just a way to clean up their image and deceive people into believing that their White superiority sentiments are benign.
Jackman hired Kawczynski, who was an active Donald Trump campaign supporter in New Hampshire, from a pool of 14 candidates. He passed a background check and several interviews, but his ideology never came up in the hiring process. And apparently, no one check his Facebook page. The town manager insists that his racial views do not influence his decision-making for the town of about 860 people, located near the Canadian border. “I do not run [Jackman] in a way where we in any way discriminate against anyone who is there. And we follow all the guidelines. And we respect everyone that comes through,” Kawczynski said. That’s hard to believe.
