(National Sentinel) Divide and Conquer: If you needed anymore evidence that the Democratic Party has been hijacked by racialists who believe the road to political success lies in white-bashing, here it is.
A Democratic gubernatorial candidate for Maine, Mark Eves — who is white — told a local gathering this week that “Maine’s whiteness is bad news,” claiming the state will fail if it doesn’t start attracting more people of color, Breitbart News reported.
According to Maine First Media and Big League Politics, Eves, the former Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, made the comment while addressing a group of nearly one hundred activists and grassroots supporters Wednesday evening at the “Resistance Rising” forum event put on by the Maine People’s Alliance in Lewiston.
What’s ironic about his comments — well, what’s sick about them — is that organizers claimed the event was about fighting “back against the racist and xenophobic rhetoric and policies coming from Washington and Augusta.”
Unless of course, you’re white.
State Republicans trounced on Eve’s comments not only for their hypocrisy but also because of their divisiveness.
“This is yet another revelation that Maine Democrats are sadly more focused on the color of people’s skin than the content of their character.” Maine GOP Chair Dr. Demi Kouzounas said. “Maine people are looking for answers on issues such as jobs, taxes, the state budget, energy costs and welfare reform, and Mark Eves is instead focusing on the color of our residents’ skin and identity politics. Maine voters see through the cynical identity politics of liberal Democrats like Mark Eves.”
Other Democrats at the gathering claimed that any one of them would be better than two-term Gov. Paul LePage — who, apparently, is the real racist, according to event organizers.
State voters disagree; in April his approval rating stood at 48 percent, the highest ever.
Hating on white people may be all the rage among Alt-Left Democrats, but politically speaking it’s really not much of a winner, as evidenced by the party’s hemorrhaging of seats in state capitols and in Congress during the Obama years.
