    Snippet:

    In a Friday press conference following his homophobic remarks about a state lawmaker, Maine Governor Paul LePage (R) 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.”

    The governor has offered a veritable potpourri of racist and homophobic remarks over the years. In his voicemail to state Rep. Drew Gattine (D) on Thursday, in an apparent attempt to convince people that he is not a racist, he said, “I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son-of-a-bitch, socialist cocksucker.”

    On Wednesday, he called Khizr Khan, the father of a fallen Muslim soldier, a “con artist.” During a town hall on that same day, he said nearly all of Maine’s drug dealers are black or Hispanic. “I don’t ask them to come to Maine (to) sell their poison, but they come,” he said. “And I will tell you, that 90 percent-plus of those pictures in my book — and it’s a three-ring binder — are black and Hispanic people from Waterbury, Connecticut, the Bronx and Brooklyn.”

    LePage grabbed national headlines earlier this year when he said men named “Smoothie, D-Money, and Shifty” were dealing drugs in Maine. He added, “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 that we’ve got to deal with down the road. We’re going to make them very severe penalties.”

    Among his other comments, he told the NAACP to “kiss my butt,” accused asylum seekers of bringing the “ziki fly,” and told the president to “go to hell.” LePage is an enthusiastic supporter of the Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump.

    “Make sure he knows before he leaves here that we have picked a winner,” LePage said of Trump when he joined him at a campaign event in Maine last month.

    A 69yo two term governor...perhaps he's eyeing retirement and doesn't care what anyone thinks at this point. Weird too, like Trump, his approval ratings were abysmal in 2014, but he still whooped his team blue competition to get re-elected. How bad must THAT guy have been? lol

    ...or perhaps, again like Trump, you get the "guy you love to hate" effect and/or people pretend to loathe what he says, while secretly agreeing with him.

    This guy will never be defeated if he continues to run. Political Correctness died in 2016.

    How else will you refer to our dark skinned brethren? You want to go back to referring to them as negro(literally black) like those apparently ray-ciss pieces of crap at...UNCF(United NEGRO College Fund)?

    Every time I hear the so called PC version "African-American", I throw up a little. Not a single one of my black friends has ever been to Africa. I'd be just as alarmed if someone called me a European-American or Anglo-American. We're just "Americans" thanks. Fukk the media and their identity politiks.

    That's exactly how I refer to them and it feels completely natural to do so. What part of 'negro' is wrong?

    Not enough syllables? Seems the moar syllables you use to describe any particular ethnicity or race the moar socially acceptable it becomes.

    Why can't we be straightforward and say Illegal Aliens, who happen to be Hispanics from Mexico are destroying our country? The P.C. Thought Police has gotten so bad, that we can't use the term Illegal Alien anymore. So yes Illegal Aliens are the enemy. This Governor is right when it comes to that.

    Dat ray-ciss mang! I think every time Trump said "illegal immigrants" or "illegal aliens" on the campaign trail and some thinly veiled commie lamestream media talking head dirtbag converted that on the fly to "hispanics", "immigrants", or "latinos" the net result was that Trump got more support. People aren't as dumbed down as I once feared I guess. Even the dumbest of the dumb seemingly know that "illegal alien" is not a race.

    They are illegal aliens. We still spoke correctly back in the 80's.

    I've never been much for PC ness.. Illegal alien will always be illegal in my eyes. None of this undocumented immigrant for me.

    If these sanctuary cities work so well for illegals or undocumented immigrants, can I make an undocumented withdrawal from the bank and flee to one of those cities?

    Obama and Clinton nearly got away with pulling a Merkle on us, and flooding the country with immigrants. The governor of Maine is opposed to flooding our country with ignorant uneducated immigrants, and so am I. Thumbs up for the Governor and his opinion on criminals being criminals, no matter the color, and thumbs down to the lying leftest media for misrepresenting the Governor's statements.

    We should start allowing more immigrants from the UK, Italy and Germany if anybody. We don't need anymore human garbage from Third World countries.

    My buddy, Dan Cofall, (may he rest in peace) when told the term "illegal aliens" was not politically correct started calling them undocumented felons.

    What I have always found interesting is that the true African Americans I have met don't really care for American "black people". They don't identify with them and don't agree with their generalizations of America. The people I have met from Africa have in their own words, never experienced racism in America.

    I think in America young blacks are trained from an early age to look for ray-cism around every corner and under every rock. If you look for something like that hard enough, you'll find it, even where none exists.

    Kinda like what cops do when people are foolish enough to interact with them. They're so intent on finding "crimes", that they see them all around, whether they exist or no.

    That they are here is proof of treason at the highest levels of government.

    Black immigrants typically do better than native blacks in America.

    It’s to do with the culture. Immigrants come here and see opportunities, natives see oppression.

    While America isn’t perfect, even if you fuck up in life you can still make a lot of money... just don’t do any felonies or have a lot of children and you’re good.

    White people pay for the roads and colleges, they even supply us with white women. I don’t understand the hate. Black peoples biggest enemies are other blacks.

    That's my biggest issue - not color of skin, but orientation of attitude. There are a lot of white people with the same mindset - that America is weighted against them - who see the shackles instead of the opportunity.

    Exactly that! If you ever get to speak with an actual African black, they have none of the 'slavery chip' on their shoulder.

    It's a 'learned' hate and until the American blacks quit teaching it, it will always be here holding them back.

    They are their own worst enemy.

    Right, seeing yourself as a victim is almost always a self destructive endeavor.
