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.
The shocking video is presented below:
Richard Fochtmann, a 2016 Democratic Party candidate for the state senate, made the shocking remarks at the “Values & Vision” event of the Maine Democrats on April 3, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Auburn. Judging by the laughter and applause from the crowd, his party appears to share his “values.”
“You know, today I saw a thing that said a lot of men — white men — are committing suicide,” 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.
Maine First, who obtained the raw video of the event, told Big League Politics that the chairman of the party, Phil Bartlett, was seen handing Fochtmann the mic and laughing at the suicide remarks.
“Very sick, Maine has a strong background of blue collar Dems, Bernie Sanders won here,” Maine First told Big League Politics. “It’s sad to see how far the Dems have fallen here.”
According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the suicide rate has skyrocketed to the highest in more than three decades.
While the suicide rate has risen in almost every group, two groups saw a decline — black men and people over 75 years old.
From 2009 through 2014, the CDC found that the suicide rate dramatically increased 43% among white men aged 45 to 64.
In 2014, the last year of the study, white men made up 83% of the 33,113 male suicide deaths in the United States. It is important to remember that these are all human beings with families.
At least Fochtmann, who appears to be a white man himself, and his cronies in the Maine Democratic Party, got a good laugh out of this tragic epidemic.
Democrats Push to Save Bankrupt Postal Service in Order to Promote Democrat Mail-in Voting Scheme
They are setting up the steal.
Democrats are shilling to save the bankrupt and destitute U.S. Postal Service (USPS) so mail-in voting can replace physical voting in November’s presidential election.
Started by left-wing comedian Samantha Bee, liberals are participating in the #MailedIt campaign to encourage Americans to mail in their voting ballots rather than going in and actually submitting their ballots on election day in traditional fashion. They are targeting the Trump administration, which has warned of the potential for fraud because of mail-in voting.
“The government is leveraging the pandemic to privatize mail deliveries,” said Samantha Bee. “President Trump and his team of vote suppressors don’t want your vote to count. He is adding the USPS to a long list of things he is afraid of, like books, stairs, and strong wind. I’m using my voice and resources to activate our fan base to enact real change because if we lose the post office I’m going to finally have to learn to use my email and I do NOT remember my password.”
Bee and other liberals have been using the hashtag all day in an attempt to rally support around USPS.

It is worth noting that this political campaign is being promoted with advertisements over Twitter, which is an apparent violation of their terms of service.
With mail-in voting being used in recent elections due to the COVID-19 pandemic, instances of alleged fraud are already emerging. Big League Politics reported on a handful of Democrats being charged with ballot tampering in New Jersey during an election conducted entirely by mail-in voting:
Four men, two of whom are Democratic city council members, have been charged with running a voter fraud operation in the town of Paterson, New Jersey.
New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges of mail-in voting fraud, election fraud, and illegal possession of mail-in ballots against Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique, and Abu Rayzen.
Jackson is an active city councilman, while Mendez is a councilman-elect. Khalique is the brother of another Paterson city councilman, and Rayzen is a campaign operative for Khalique’s brother, Shahin Khalique.
The charges allege that Jackson took it upon himself to pick up completed mail-in ballots from voters in the city and delivered them to the Passaic County Board of Elections. Jackson failed to disclose to the board of elections that he delivered ballots for that he’s a city council member, and in one case, a ballot that he picked up that was unsealed was delivered to the election authorities sealed and completed.
Mendez is also accused of the same form of dishonest ballot harvesting, declining to reveal that he was a candidate for office when dropping off mail-in ballots. He’s also charged with falsifying and tampering with records.
Although they’re rarely enforced, New Jersey laws criminalizing election fraud have strict penalties, and it’s possible that the men could face prison sentences of up to ten years if they’re convicted of the second-degree felonies of which they’re charged.
Democrats are gleefully opening Pandora’s Box for abuse with their push to prop up the USPS and enable widespread mail-in voting.
