A group of Maine Democrats have been caught on camera laughing and cheering about the rising suicide rate among white males.
Richard Fochtmann, a former Maine senatorial candidate, was filmed speaking at a “Values and Vision” event hosted by the Maine Democratic Party. At one point, the politician mentioned that the party needs more women, before engaging in his own brand of hate speech.
“You know, I saw somewhere today that a lot of white men are committing suicide,” he continued. “I almost thought, yeah, great.”
The audience erupted in cheers and laughter.
