Maine Democrats laugh about white men committing suicide

Richard Fochtmann was a 2016 Democratic candidate for District 22 of the Maine State Senate. He ran unopposed in the state’s Democratic primary election on June 14, 2016.

This is the kind of man whom Maine Democrats chose to run for the State Senate.

At a Values and Vision Summit held by the Maine Democratic Party in April 2017, Fochtmann was talking about how more women should be involved in the Democratic Party in his state, when he interrupted himself and began sharing a thought he’d had about a statistic he had seen recently:

“Today, you know, I saw a thing, and it said a lot of men — white men — are committing suicide. I almost thought, ‘Yeah, great!’”

At this, Fochtmann’s audience of Democrats began laughing because, you know, increasing numbers of white men committing suicide is just such a funny thing.

Fochtmann then admitted that “Then I thought about it little more, and I thought maybe I shouldn’t say that out in public,” which of course he did.

The incident was captured on cellphone video and tweeted by conservative news website Maine First Media, then picked up by other conservative media outlets. To watch the video and hear pony-tailed Fochtmann and the attendant Democrats joke and laugh about white male suicides, go here.

But the Maine Democratic Party said nothing until a few days later, only to blame the “far right” for publishing the video recording of Fochtmann and spreading “disinformation”.

Bangor Daily News blogger Chris Dixon points out:

Richard Fochtmann ran for State Senate last year against Republican Senate Majority Leader Garrett Mason. Maine Democrats chose him to be their candidate to try and unseat a prominent Republican State Senator. That’s a heavy endorsement of Fochtmann’s character.

What if the voters had selected Fochtmann? Maine Democrats would have had a sitting State Senator making jokes about white men committing suicide and celebrating the rise in incidents. […]

The crowd clearly was laughing at Fochtmann’s suicide joke. Maine Democratic Party chairman Phil Bartlett was in the crowd, as well. Did he laugh, too? […]

This isn’t a conspiracy to frame Democrats. The Maine Democratic Party trying to play victim after they used suicide as a punchline is morally wrong and absolutely heartless.

Suicide is a real issue and it is above partisan politics, contrary to what the Maine Democratic Party believes.

A report by the Centers For Disease Control showed a 24% increase in suicide deaths among all people, with suicides of non-Hispanic white males registering the second largest increase. (BizPacReview)

On November 8, 2016, Richard Fochtmann was handily defeated by Republican incumbent Garrett Mason, 67.02% to 32.98%, who retained his seat in the Maine State Senate. (Ballotpedia)

    For your information. Maine realized what the Democratic Party stands for which is Obama’s communism/muslim party.

  5. A Democrat Party “Values and Vision Summit”??? Seriously? Oxymoronic.
    Here’s the punchline I enjoyed:

    • Channeling Jim Jones, it is his great responsibility to oversee the knocking back of the Kool Aid. (Don’t use sugar, it could be bad for one’s heath.) When that work is done, he can focus on himself. Or not. Probably not.
