Fighting A Critical and Necessary Fight!

Ever since election night, it feels as if we've had our country snatched away from us and handed over to Fascists, or the "Alt-Right" as they stupidly have named themselves.

Trump and the rest of these lunatics might think they've won, but they seriously have underestimated the resistance of decent people everywhere.

I've been fighting these SOB's on the radio and Internet for decades and now I'm writing a book to tell you the story of my resistance... and why it is critical we fight this insanity together.

***SUCCESS Kathy Malloy Commentary Stretch Goal $21,000***

HI Truthseekers.  I'm Kathy Malloy, Mike's wife and producer of The Mike Malloy Show.

I’m excited that Mike is finally writing a book to tell his stories and provide a plan for fighting back against these fascist a@@holes who have taken over our country.

This is going to be a great and important book… but there's something I’d like to add to it. 
And that’s a woman’s perspective. Specifically from the one who knows Mike, his stories and his show the best. And that woman would be me!

Because we met our stretch goal of $21,000 I will write my own short commentary for the key chapters of “The Alt-Right, Trump & Me” which we will make available digitally to every backer.

***

***SUCCESS HATE MAIL STRETCH REWARD***

The book will already include a solid collection of hate mail but there is a bunch that is just too stupid, funny, strange, vicious or downright bizarre to include in the book. But I still want to share it with you.

Because We Raised $17,500 Everyone Will Get A Digital Bonus “The Best of Mike Malloy Hate Mail”

Classic 90s Mike Malloy Hate Mail

I’ll even mark up some of these messages to correct obvious stupidity and make a few key points.

And if you want to own an original piece of Mike Malloy Hate Mail, personally marked up and signed by me then this is your chance. We’re adding a limited number of these to the rewards

***ACHIEVED Photos Stretch Reward***

The Book Will Now Include Photos from Mike's Life and Career

If we reach that level before the campaign ends there will be a cool collection of black and white photos included in every copy of the book. These will be a mix of private photos and interesting press and publicity pics that most of you have never seen before.

Success! Now every copy of the book will include photos from Mike's life and career

"The Alt-Right, Trump & Me: Dispatches From The Foothills Of The North Georgia Mountains" a book by Mike Malloy

I will tell the stories of my personal experiences with these crazed night-crawlers during my 40+ years in the South, along with the rise of the alt-right itself which culminated in the installation of Donald Trump as President.

Think You Have a Better Title? Check out Update #6 and enter The Mike Malloy Alt-Title Contest

Included will be incidents that were - and sometimes still are - weirdly funny and sickeningly scary.  I'll also write about how my media work is nothing less than a complete denial of these sociopaths and every destructive idea they want to force onto the rest of us. In addition, an in-depth examination of their overt - as well as not so overt –  religious nuttery that is directly related to the rise of all Fascist movements.

The book will be heavy on personal incidents and my interpretation of this madness, together with real-time events as the Trump presidency unfolds (or folds up).

It will be a book about resistance, the truth and why we are all - those of us still able to think - angry as hell,  ready to organize, and ultimately prepared to smash this Fascist upsurge.

What Else Will Be In The Book?

It will begin with my introduction in the 80s to the Christo-fascist division of the "alt-right" (the "Christian Reconstruction" movement) and how it led to my securing and maintaining a concealed carry permit.  The book will also tell of my personal experiences and thoughts from battling these hateful idiots for decades now.  Some of the chapters I've written (or plan to write) include...

Hi, Fellow Truthseekers

I'm Mike Malloy and for several decades my wife Kathy and I have been broadcasting our radio program - now podcast - every night from a studio in our basement.

On the program, we do a deep dive into news, politics, current events and controversial topics rarely discussed in the mainstream media. For more than two decades, we have delivered three hours of powerful, provocative political talk radio to Truth Seekers across America. And we are not shy about our personal political positions, either. As former traditional Liberal Democrats who have morphed into Radical Progressives, we tackle the tough subjects while exposing the lunacy and danger (and unintended humor) of the neo-Fascists and the unresponsive Corporatists in power on both sides of the aisle. (I'm sure you know which side of the aisle is which.)

Above all, we believe in free speech and the right to hear more than one opinion on the airwaves. Such a novel idea, right?

Hate Mail So Hateful It's Funny

I have reams of hate mail written to me when I worked in both Atlanta and Chicago.  "The Alt-Right, Trump & Me . . ." will include the best and the funniest of these crazed missives for everyone to enjoy.  You think what the alt-right shrieks about on social media is ugly? Wait till you read what these functionally illiterate clowns write when they think no one but me will ever see it! Ha! Surprise!

Grab Your Reward

Simply put, this campaign is focused on getting "The Alt-Right, Trump and Me . . ." published. The key rewards you'll find here will show you how to get your own copy of the book. I will personally sign each copy at every reward level; but, if you want chapter previews as they're written, the audio book, your name in the "thank you" section, or one of the other book-related items, the reward section lists the level of contribution that will make that happen.

Do You Want More Than One Copy of The Book?

Many of you have asked us how you can get more than one copy of the book (whether to give to friends and family or maybe use as doorstops) and we want to make that easy for you.

Simply add $25 to your total amount, per additional copy. Then leave us a message letting us know and we’ll make sure you get it/them to you. These will be the same standard signed copy as listed in "The Book" reward level.

Fighting a critical and necessary fight!

Ever since election night, it feels as if we've had our country snatched away from us and handed over to Fascists, or the "Alt-Right" as they stupidly have named themselves.

 Trump and the rest of these lunatics might think they've won, but they seriously have underestimated the resistance of decent people everywhere.

I've been fighting these SOB's on the radio and Internet for decades and now I'm writing a book to tell you the story of my resistance... and why it is critical we fight this insanity together.

We Need Your Help

Not that long ago one of the worst of the alt-right fascists got a $250,000 book deal with a major publisher. His purpose? To push his hateful agenda. Way to go, major publisher.

We're not going to a major publisher to make this book happen; we're going to you, our fans and our fellow truth seekers.

I have begun writing the book, but we're going to need money in order to cover editing, design, layout and, most critically, the actual printing. 

When you support this campaign you won't just be getting your own copy of "The Alt-Right, Trump and Me. . . " You'll also be helping us make the book a reality, a book that can be shared and read in this critical and dangerous time.

Thank You for Making The Push for 500 a Success and Throwing The Book At The Alt Right!

Thank You!

Thank you for checking out this campaign, and for supporting the fight against ignorance, hatred and stupidity now at the highest levels of our government.

I'm working steadily on the writing and I know you'll have fun (?) reading it - you know how I can rant and rave, right?

So, please support the campaign and share it with your friends.  Okay, your enemies too. Maybe they'll learn something.

And, thank you from deep in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains.
