Racism Super Stupid

Maine Governor Paul LePage is Super Racist

Written by SK Ashby

If you're a regular read here, you're probably familiar with Maine Governor Paul LePage, a man who has compared public campaign financing to giving his wife a blank check.

Saying terrible things is a matter of routine for Paul LePage, but this is by far the worst thing he has ever said.

These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home,” LePage told a large crowd. “Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”


LePage has issued a statement denying that he was referring to black people, but the only way you would believe that is if you're just as dumb as LePage is.

The idea that black drug dealers with Secret Service code names are traveling to your wholesome neighborhoods from other states and stealing your white women may be appealing if you're a racist, but I'm willing to bet the drug dealers of Maine more closely resemble the cast of Fargo rather than The Wire.

LePage is facing possible impeachment this year for bullying a private school system into reversing their decision to hire Maine House Speaker Mark Eves.
