Earlier this year, news crews from around the country descended on the tiny town of Jackman, ME to provide non-stop live coverage of their appointed Town Manager. Although, from the level of coverage and the articles printed and reprinted in nearly every newspaper around the country we would have expected either a cure for cancer or a terrorist event, they had invaded the town over something decidedly mundane: their Town Manager had used social media to express the idea that Muslim immigrants would be a less than ideal match for rural Maine.

This is, of course, a pretty sensible point of view, as anyone who has seen (uncensored) news coming out of Europe can attest. Between child rapes, murders, roving rape gangs and no-go zones all the way from Sweden to France and covering Germany and England in-between, transplanted Muslim communities haven't exactly been a great match. And that's putting it lightly. Last night I was having a conversation with a nice British lady who was expressing her dismay, stating that the Muslims were literally "ruining my country."

But today, stating a common-sense truth can be nigh upon criminal. Although it is expected that people with zero access to power or control might say things that are unapproved, it is generally understood that if the status quo tells you that a man is a woman, you will call him "ma'am" without even blinking. And if you are in a position of power, stating things that contradict the multicult -- even if demonstrably true -- will mobilize an extraordinary response to assure you are removed from any position of power or influence, and preferably left to die homeless from exposure. That's the reality. Though they speak of "love of all," in practice, as we know, their philosophy is one of endless hatred.

And thus the bomb was dropped on Tom Kawczynski. Although he had previously received exemplary reviews and even raises because he was doing such a good job, the Town Council folded under the pressure and fired him without cause for daring to express an opinion that would literally save the lives of some of the town's inhabitants. Without putting too fine of a point on this, the elected councilors of the town, given a choice, would rather import a Somali rape gang into the town to terrorize and destroy little white girls than have a high-performing town manager who (gasp!) dared to express a provable fact.

Thus, Tom found himself without means of support for himself or his family.

Rather than backing down, Tom doubled-down. I was pleased to meet and speak with Tom a few weeks ago, and he is most assuredly an intelligent, ethical, informed and enthusiastic advocate for our cause. Instead of disappearing into obscurity and death as his detractors intended, Tom showed he is made of strong stuff, and has emerged with ideas for uniting disparate right-wing advocacy, and in the process he has written and published "Someone Has to Say it."

Many of us have devoted decades of research to understanding and uncovering what is really going on, and the process is always ongoing. There is always a new layer. The sheer quantity of information can be overwhelming and uniting it into a cohesive narrative for the average person to understand can be daunting.

That is what Someone Has to Say it is all about. This is not a book full of footnotes, written to impress academics. Instead, it is a plain-written book describing, step by step, how the America of our forefathers was lost. The steps in that process are described in a simple way, leaving out the endless details you might find in books dedicated to a specific subject.

Let's be honest -- many in our movement can really "geek out" on this stuff. And at a certain level, that is absolutely necessary. The works of luminaries like Philippe Rushton and Kevin MacDonald are absolutely indispensable. But at the same time, they are not very accessible to most of our people who don't savor sitting around mulling over weighty tomes written at college graduate level. And a lot of us can geek out over the details of subjects like the Federal Reserve, and can tell you every person who attended the secret masked meetings at Jekyll Island. And there is room for that too -- we NEED subject matter experts.

But this is not a geeky book for subject matter experts. At a fast-paced 250 pages, the book gives us a tour starting from the formation of the Federal Reserve through to the present, and documents each major event and the role it has played in our dispossession. In each chapter, it gives a synopsis of the generally accepted presentation of the event, and then presents a counter-narrative that explains what really happened, and how it has affected us detrimentally. Instead of presenting these events as disconnected, Tom uses his knowledge of history and his ability to distill what is important to tie together all the parts -- the Federal Reserve, The New Deal, Feminism, The Great Society, The War on Terror, the income tax and more -- into a single, flowing and cohesive narrative that makes it all make sense and shows how it all advances the same sinister cause.

As a result, this is a fundamentally accessible book. It could easily have been subtitled "A gentle red pill about the real history of the past century." In fact, we have desperately needed a book like this to round out our own homeschool curriculum, and this book will be perfect for that task.

And the fact we will be adding it to our curriculum for high school should tell you something: this book is good.

Well written and from the heart, Someone Has to Say it just tells the unabashed truth. It is an engaging book and I read it through the first time in about three days of spare time.

Tom writes in a friendly, thoughtful and engaging way without expecting people to make huge leaps or dramatically change their own self-image. He doesn't expect (or encourage) negative or hateful reactions, but instead encourages positive manifestation of identity combined with an awareness of what we face. As such, it is a truly excellent book to give normies as an introduction to the fact they have been lied to about practically everything for their entire lives.

If you've been involved in this movement for a while, it may take a bit to look back and remember what it was like when you first realized that maybe the JQ wasn't completely a conspiracy theory, or that the Fed was a scam, or that our government wants to replace us with Mestizos and literally hates us for the crime of being born white. It's shocking. Not merely shocking, it is a profound betrayal because everyone from our parents to every teacher in school to every other authority figure has directly or indirectly contributed to our deception. Waking up to that is not at all pleasant. In some respects, it can be a real relief to finally get some resolution to cognitive dissonance, but it also comes with a major reconfiguration of how we view the world, and even how we view ourselves.

Of course, the material we had available to us a couple of decades ago (or even further back) tended to be rather hard-hitting. But along with being hard-hitting, it was harshly worded -- almost intended to shock. This caused those who were not converted to go screaming in the other direction, never to return.

And that's why I stress the fact this book is friendly. Yes, it tells truth. But it doesn't mix up those truths with hateful stereotypes or advocacy of evil. It just sticks to the truth, and expresses that truth compassionately.

And that is the magic of this book.

It would be easy to point you to hundreds of sources that might elucidate any given subject covered in this book. But it would be much more difficult if not impossible to find a book that ties those subjects together in an understandable and intelligent way. And if I were to find such a source, the odds are that it would be written by someone whose sense of betrayal has led to advocacy of harm against innocent people -- and that sort of thing is not only morally wrong, it plays into a trap set by the Apostles of Epic Evil while at the same time driving our own people away from the very cause they need to be supporting for their own long-term wellbeing.

The magic of Tom's book is that he is writing from a position of genuine human compassion which is as rare as it is welcome. This book entertains no morbid fantasies, but instead speaks of community, charity, hope and connection. This book contains no worship of historical dictators, but instead reaches back to the vision of our own founders and what makes us uniquely American, and our own organic understanding of freedom.

And he manages to do this without equivocating or pulling punches. His narrative is presented masterfully, and I recommend you read this book both for the benefit of seeing the way the historic events are connected, and as something you can hand to normie friends and family. For this reason I recommend the paperback edition.

Let me go back to reiterate two things I discussed earlier. The first is that this is a great book for red-pilling normies. That's why I want you to get it in paperback to share with others. The second is that the author of this book has been viciously attacked by the full force of our media nationwide and effectively rendered unemployable, making it hard to support his family. Instead of rolling over and playing dead, he has come out swinging for the fences. Instead of asking people to send him money out of charity, he has instead produced a product of solid value.

So when you buy this book you are:
1. Supporting a white man and his family, giving an honest payment for honest work.
2. Supporting the existence of pro-European-American cultural content.
3. Rendering our censors powerless to hurt a man they desperately want to hurt.
4. Getting a really great book that is perfect for handing off to normies.

Given all the above, get a couple of copies!
