Mark Eves, a Democratic former Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives who is now running for governor in 2018, stated in a speech before a large crowd that “Maine’s whiteness is bad news,” during a Maine People’s Alliance event on Wednesday.
Maine First Media reports that Eves told the crowd of nearly 100 Democrats that, “Maine is going to be in trouble if it can’t attract a more diverse population.”
Eves’ racist comments are in sharp contrast to quotes that he gave the Bangor Daily News when he announced his gubernatorial bid in July. He told the paper at the time, “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.” Surely, calling a large portion of the population “bad news” over the color of their skin is a way to unite a fractured population.
Ironically, the event was promoted by the Maine’s People’s Alliance on the basis that “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.” Given Eves’ speech, it seems as though the racism was coming from in house, however.
In April, a former candidate for the Maine State Senate was caught on video at an event hosted by the state Democratic Party celebrating the increasing rate of white male suicide — to massive cheers and laughter from the crowd.
“You know, today I saw a thing that said a lot of men — white men — are committing suicide,” Richard Fochtmann stated, “and I almost said yeah! Great!”
As soon as Fochtmann finished his statement, the crowd began laughing.
“Then I thought about it, and I thought, well, maybe I shouldn’t say that in public,” Fochtmann continued.
Eves, a 40-year-old white politician, is most well-known for his lawsuit against Maine Governor Paul LePage, alleging illegal retaliation and blackmail. The conflict stemmed from Eves’ hiring by the non-profit organization Good Will-Hinckley.
When LePage heard that Eves had been hired, he urged Good Will-Hinckley to reconsider, referring to the new-hire as a “hack.” LePage also stated that he would be pulling all “support from Good Will-Hinckley as long as Eves remained as President of the organization” over his being a “a longtime opponent of public charter schools.” LePage was fired 19 days after signing his employment agreement.
The lawsuit was thrown out after the judge determined that LePage was entitled to immunity as he was advocating for his “preferred charter school policy.” It was also dismissed in an appeal.
Big League Politics reached out to Eves for comment, but did not receive a response by time of publishing.

California Lets Convicted Murderers of Children and Pregnant Woman Out of Jail Amidst Coronavirus Panic
The convicted child killer was one of many felons who were freed.
California Governor Gavin Newsom is exploiting the coronavirus crisis in order to more quickly implement far-left criminal justice policies, which has allowed at least one convicted child murder to be let back on the streets.
Newsom commuted the prison sentences of 21 different convicted criminals and pardoned five others who had already served their sentences on Friday. A stunning 14 of the cases involved murder or a charge related to murder. Children were the victims in two of the chilling cases. In another case, it was a pregnant woman who was the victim. The people found responsible for these heinous crimes by the court of law are now back on the streets.
Suzanne Johnson, a 75-year-old San Diego county resident who served 22 years in prison for assaulting a child who ended up dying, had her sentence commuted. Joann Parks, a 64-year-old Los Angeles county resident who served 27 years in prison after her three children were killed in a house fire, also received amnesty from the Governor. Rodney McNeal, a 50-year-old San Bernardino county resident found guilty of stabbing his pregnant wife to death, was freed and now walks the streets as well.
Newsom made it clear that these violent criminals would have been let out of jail anyway by his regime, but the coronavirus panic gave him an excuse to speed the process up considerably. The Governor’s office claimed that Newsom “also considered the public health impact of each grant, as well as each inmate’s individual health status and the suitability of their post-release plans, including housing,”
This is part of a national jailbreak policy with coronavirus being used as an excuse to enact far-left criminal justice policies:
On Wednesday, January 18, 2020 Philadelphia’s police commissioner promised that the city’s officers are “not turning a blind eye to crime” after unveiling a new policy that pushes for a delay in arrests of those who carry out certain non-violent crimes.
This policy was announced the day before responding to the Wuhan virus outbreak and concerns that jails are at an increased risk of becoming overcrowded and infected given how Philadelphia’s courts have been ordered to close up until April 1.
Under this new policy, individuals accused of crimes such as burglary or prostitution will be temporarily detained to have their paperwork sorted out before being let loose and arrested on a warrant during a later date…
Ngo recently commented on Outlaw’s latest decision in her new position with the Philadelphia Police Department.
He tweeted, “Philadelphia police commissioner Danielle Outlaw, who ran Portland Police until recently, notified commanders that they are to suspend making arrests related to theft, retail theft, burglary, stolen vehicles etc. until further notice. Leaked memo: documentcloud.org/documents/6811
Liberals will never let a crisis go to waste when it comes to inflicting their extreme policies on unsuspecting Americans.
