Maine governor to NAACP: “Kiss my butt”

posted at 7:21 pm on January 14, 2011 by Allahpundit

Why would a man engage in such undiplomatic language? My theory: After a week of incendiary and irresponsible rhetoric from the left over the Arizona shootings, his nerves were frayed by the “climate of hate” and he just snapped. Granted, I have zero proof, but it pleases my partisan sensibilities to believe it, and besides, it’s a fittingly idiotic note on which to end a week of pure political insanity. So congratulations, liberals — you drove him to this.

Slublog has all the background you need on what inspired this dastardly act of speech-hate, including a reminder of the NAACP’s own Krugman-esque regard for tea partiers. The man’s either (a) the next Chris Christie or (b) obviously a violent racist. Perhaps we should ask his adopted son from Jamaica which it is?

we are at the point that many politicians simply voice platitudes on MLK, personally I think that is more offensive that this governor.

rob verdi on January 14, 2011 at 7:26 PM

Search his name on Wikipedia.

His website doesn’t mention his party nor does this article.

I didn’t have to be told. The minute I found out he was poor and learned to work for a living and then became a successful business man, I knew he wasn’t a Dem.

Folks like this guy with his story are NEVER Dems. It is against their whole life experience. It would be an insult.

I really like this guy’s attitude…………..

Huh. AP is miscasting the statement. LePage didn’t say that TO the NAACP.

To sate the obvious, it’s time we started calling out the NAACP for the uber-leftist, race-mongering outfit it has become.

petefrt on January 14, 2011 at 7:31 PM

And another thing: The NAACP has stated that his statement is……wait for it……RACIST.

“Governor Le Page’s decision to inflame racial tension on the eve of the King holiday denigrates his office. His words are a reminder of the worst aspects of Maine’s history and out of touch with our nation’s deep yearning for increased civility and racial healing.”

But I’m confused. Saying to “kiss my butt” is racist, but saying you’re gonna’ “kick some ass” like our esteemed POTUS sated recently is ……..what exactly?

deewhybee on January 14, 2011 at 7:33 PM

Even in defense, Slublog is entirely too sensitive. “Kiss my butt.” Wow. Wasn’t the laughter after the statement a clue as to its sincerity?

A world where a man can’t say “kiss my butt” is a world I don’t want to live in.

By the way, anyone know how much life this has on the lefty blogs? I hope they’re trying to run this one up the flagpole too- credibility is already in short supply over there; this one will just spend some more.

Slu actually provides the context to make the NAACP statement quite self-damning. The KKK in Maine didn’t go after blacks – of which there are very few in Maine even today – but after French Catholics. Who can count among their number a certain Paul LePage.

That would be as if the NAACP bashed Michael Steele and said that “this conjures up the slave state history of Maryland.”

Impossibly excellent. Long overdue. The Left has only increased the intimidation and abuse to the point when no other reaction was possible. I’m guessing now they will pull out their new “incivility” card, as in this kind of incivility leads to hatred and violence. There is no winning in their world of twisted rules and inverted morality unless we push back and keep pushing back.

Get a job, show up, and work like the rest of us. Obama has shown to the world what a waste of time and money it has been trying to ‘equalize’ things for the black man. What do we get?

I grew up in Maine, and left about 27 years ago, and have been disgusted with Maine politics ever since.

I watched this guy from the moment he announced his primary run. My gut told me he could win. He won. Then he won the general.

It was a sign to me that Maine was waking up. Maine attitudes are difficult to explain to anyone that is not familiar with the people.

I can tell you this. He won, and I sensed he could win, because he personifies Maine attitudes. I guarantee you this type of statement only solidifies his popularity with the voters.

Don’t ask me to explain Snowe and Collins. Maine is different. That’s all I can tell you.

And No. 3, government should be working for the people, not the people working for the government,” LePage says in the video. “And as your governor, you’re gonna be seeing a lot of me on the front page saying ‘Gov. LePage tells Obama to go to hell.’”

This scandalous scandal is fun from his Wiki page. He hired his daughter as his Chief of Staff:

LePage’s daughter, holding a position described as “entry-level,” will be paid approximately $41,000 gross, in addition to receiving employee benefits estimated to total another $15,000 a year in cost. This is in addition to receiving free rent and living expenses as a member of the Governor’s family residing in the Governor’s mansion, a benefit estimated to be worth another $10,000 a year annually.

Thanks to ObamaCare she can be on her parent’s healthcare until she’s 26, but this cannot stand! From this moment forward when children of elected officials who are not Democrats reside in official residences (like the White House) they must be portrayed as corrupt, deadbeat freeloaders.

The people I surround myself with know who I am, they represent the crayon box, they know I put my country before any particular crayon.

I thought I recognized this guy

http://www.pressherald.com/news/mitchell-regrets-bush-terrorist-photo_2010-10-13.html

At a debate Monday night in Bangor, Mitchell said a governor must be respectful of the president, a reference to a video showing LePage telling a group of fishermen last month that, if elected, he would tell President Obama to “go to hell.”

LePage shot back that he had seen a photo of Mitchell holding a photo of Bush labeling him a terrorist. Mitchell first denied knowing what LePage was talking about, but afterward the LePage campaign produced a photo of a laughing Mitchell holding a framed document or letter with a small attached photo of Bush bracketed by the words “international terrorist.”

Why would a man engage in such undiplomatic language? My theory: After a week of incendiary and irresponsible rhetoric from the left over the Arizona shootings, his nerves were frayed by the “climate of hate” and he just snapped. Granted, I have zero proof, but it pleases my partisan sensibilities to believe it, and besides, it’s a fittingly idiotic note on which to end a week of pure political insanity. So congratulations, liberals — you drove him to this.

HAHAHAHA! I love you Allah…

If he can turn Maine around, my husband and I may have to rethink our retirement plans.

Civility we can believe in. This is beautiful.
