Maine Democrats: Don't worry, it's OK. We're laughing about dead white people, so it's not racist. bluelivesmatter.blue
A video was released on Friday that shows Maine Democrats at a meeting laughing about white male suicide (below.)
According to The Washington Times, the event was a “Values and Vision” community meeting, hosted by the Maine Democratic Party.
The comments were made by former state senatorial candidate Richard Fochtmann. He said “what we need in Maine is we need younger people — take a look. It looks almost like a lecture for Social Security. Okay, so that’s one thing. We need to encourage as many young people. We also need more women. Today I saw a thing that said a lot of men, white men are committing suicide. I almost thought yeah, great. Then I thought about it little more and I thought maybe I shouldn’t say that out in public.”
