The Former Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, Mark Eves claimed Maine’s whiteness is “bad news,” while speaking to nearly one hundred activists and grassroots supporters on Wednesday evening. 

The Maine People’s Alliance presented the event in Lewiston as a chance for people question the gubernatorial candidates in a bid to “make sure that our next leaders have a truly progressive vision for Maine.”

“Now, more than ever, we need progressive leaders who will work to help everyday Mainers and fight back against the racist and xenophobic rhetoric and policies coming from Washington and Augusta,” claimed the organizers.

Eves, who is a leading voice for the Maine Democrats as well as a Democrat candidate for Governor, was speaking at the event when he claimed Maine will be in trouble if it can’t attract a more diverse population.

Eves has possibly forgotten what kind of message he initially tried to spread.

In July, as he announced his bid for governor, Eves said: “I believe that is how we will start to bring together a state that can feel all too divided and build a better Maine one family at a time.”

This is not the first time a Maine Democrat has said something inflammatory.

A Democratic state lawmaker in Maine posted a long and abusive rant on Facebook which included threats to the President.

“Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that pussy,” Rep. Scott Hamann wrote in July.

He also accused President Trump of being “anti-American,” and an “admitted rapist” who was “installed by the Russians.”

“Don’t like the truth?” he continued. “Well then fuck you, snowflake. You’re a fucking pussy. And you people are destroying America.”

“100% of intelligence Americans agree that Trump is a complete loser. But go back to clinging to your guns because you’re afraid. Pussy,” he said.

Hamann later resigned from the job he held at a regional food bank.

“I have been considering changing jobs for the past year, since I completed my MBA last fall and would like to pursue employment opportunities more in line with my education level,” he claimed while explaining his departure. “Particularly since Trump supporters from around the country were making threatening calls to the food bank to harass them into firing me over my satirical Facebook comment, it felt appropriate to spare my coworkers and an organization I love any more hassle. Good Shepherd was the best employer I could have asked for during the three years I was there, but this seemed like the right time to pursue jobs that put my degree to better use.”

    Don’t you just love a white politician selling out the “white” people in order to get voted into office.Shame on us white people who have to work our butts off just to have roof over their heads because we aren’t rich, keep food on the table, buy clothes for the kids, paying for outrages insurance, paying all these taxes we pay, and trying just to keep our head above water: Shame on us. Also, shame on you “white” men who the feminist hate because it’s your fault too, because you are just living. I would love to tell this “WHITE” man, just F off to his face. And as far as Trump, he never admitted to being a rapist but Clinton was the accused rapist and I’m talking about Bill, who knows what Hillary has done behind close doors.

    Maine has more than its fair share of drunks. Sounds like these 2 are among them.

  • Mark Quayle

    That rant doesn’t sound like the rant of an MBA. More like the rant of someone with a freshly minted degree in Gender Studies.

    Maybe it’s because I’m Asian but I don’t understand white democrats.
    Does he think “diversity” is going to support him?
    Other races want their own politicians, not white liberal overlords.

    Eventually white democrats will be an endangered species if they keep this up.

    • Chesapeake

      They’re pandering liars.

    • BooBooBaby

      I know. Exactly! I wonder and think the same things. I was just talking about this. I just don’t get it either. It is some Crazy Sick White/Self Hate Guilt! They obviously aren’t thinking. Lol!

    Mental illness should disqualify you from running for office.

    For all the times Democrats do this kind of racist stuff openly, it never seems to actually stick to the Democrat Party.

  • 1NonPermissive

    Liberal men are too effeminate for their own good.

  • ytuque

    Liberal white males are so full of self-loathing for their white skin that they are mentally unbalanced. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  • Libby Taylor

    If he is so against whiteness he needs to start with himself.

    All the Demon craps talk about is race. RACISTS!!

  • BorderGuard

    He should KILL HIMSELF, or have a BLM terrorist kill him, for diversity’s sake.

    Scott Hamann —“Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that pussy.”

    Trump — “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”

    Ya, see. Do you see the difference ?? This is where you loose the moderates. Your addiction to equivalency. When it comes to aggressive rhetoric right wingers do it more often and more threateningly.

  • PHHT

    Anti-Trump are violent and irrational. They put words in your mouth and escalate to shouting as soon as they realize you support Trump. They are foul, unhappy people

  • ssgtnelson

    It’s funny how serious they are until they are called out… and then it becomes satire.

  • kazzer66

    LOL. More miserable people trying to make everyone else as miserable as they are. Not enough straight jackets in the world for these moonbats.

    If you rounded up these folks and put them in a cage, do you think they would run around screeching and flinging feces, or do you think they’d off each other? It would make an interesting study.

    Fun hate fact to share: comparing a list of states with highest quality of life with a list of whitest states, six states are on both top tens.

    It’s empirical; living around white people is just better.

    Guilty of Being White by Minor Treat.

    I’m sorry
    For something that I didn’t do
    Lynched somebody
    But I don’t know who
    You blame me for slavery
    A hundred years before I was born

    Guilty of being white

    I’m sorry
    For something that I didn’t do
    Lynched somebody
    But I don’t know who
    You blame me for slavery
    A hundred years before I was born

    Guilty of being white

    I’m a convict (Guilty!)
    Of a racist crime (Guilty!)
    I’ve only served (Guilty!)
    Nineteen years of my time

    I’m sorry
    For something that I didn’t do
    Lynched somebody
    But I don’t know who
    You blame me for slavery
    A hundred years before I was born

    Guilty of being white
