Governor Of Maine Says People Of Color Are ‘The Enemy,’ Implies They Should Be Shot
Quote:In a Friday press conference following his homophobic remarks about a state lawmaker, Maine Governor Paul LePage ® called people of color and people of Hispanic origin “the enemy” and implied they should be shot.

“A bad guy is a bad guy. I don’t care what color he is. When you go to war, if you know the enemy, the enemy dresses in red and you dress in blue, you shoot at red,” he said. “You shoot the enemy. You try to identify the enemy. And the enemy right now, the overwhelming majority of people coming in are people of color or people of Hispanic origin.”

"I don't care what color he is" = "I'm not racist, but..."

Lots of third party websites out there, and the new trend by the GOP is to paint blue supporters as the real racists.

Got any other sources besides this link to confirm this story?

Maine is 95% white. Have you ever been there? They hate outsiders. They all think like that. This guy still has a 50% approval rating.

Shit, sad to see that this kind of crap is infecting blue states.

Racism exists in every state, including blue states, but we are not talking about the average voter, but the messaging of the politicians who seek power.

The GOP used to be the party of Lincoln, but flipped during Nixon's Southern Strategy.

But Democrats have been loosing the map even blue states over the past 36 years from GOP gerrymandering and our voter apathy.

It sickens me that this GOP asshole controls a northern state, just like I cant understand how Chrispy Kritter is Governor of New Jersey.

Take a look around. Democrats lost 1,000 government seats during Obama's terms. From governors, to federal seats and state legislatures. Democrats are being rejected at every level. Their party can't even find donors. Lowest fundraising numbers in two decades.

So not surprising that a politician panders to his base Dodgy One would have hoped that these guys who rise to posts like this would be people of some degree of moral fibre. Regardless of party affiliation.
