"Today I saw a thing and it said a lot of men…a lot of white men were committing suicide, and I almost thought, ‘Yeah, great,’ Then I thought about it little more and I thought maybe I shouldn't say that out in public."



News Center Maine provides some facts:
The Maine Democratic Party reacted to the video release with a statement, saying that [Richard Fochtmann, former State Senate candidate – and at the time - the Chairman of the Leeds Democratic Committee] was there as a private citizen and in no way represents the party....

Fochtmann said he regrets the joke. “It really wasn't funny, and I'm sorry that I did say that,” he said. “I just happen to be a passionate, outspoken person, and sometimes I just engage my mouth before I engage my brain.” He also said that after he finished speaking, a woman stepped up to the microphone and told him she was offended by his comments. He says that he later took the microphone again and apologized.

Today the NYT remembered dead Don Imus as someone who told sexist jokes. Stop the presses.

The self-recriminations from apologetic males in the "Men won't see the new Little Women" comment thread are far more disturbing than the article itself. If nobody is shoving bamboo up these guys' genitalia to get them to confess so energetically to malecrimes, they can only be getting off on this stuff.

Today's feature story about women alcoholics not needing Alcoholics Anonymous because it's a patriarchal institution for men who need to heal themselves not of drinking but of vicious white masculine social power literally justifies alcoholism in women as a reasonable response to sexism.

What will they do next? I lack the imagination.

The Surprising part, is how many new Progressives are white males. They apparently think, that if they turn in lots of OTHER white males, they'll be left alone; when really, they'll just be left for last

Darrell said...

Lefties have called for the outright killing of white people and it rarely involves any consequences for them. It's made its way into TV and movies, too--and I'm presuming books. For example, in the reboot of Charmed, one of the witches noticed that all the victims of the current case they were working on were white college men. And so her sister says something like not exactly an endangered species then and should we even be looking into this? That was from an episode in the first season.

Masscon said...

"I happen to be a passionate outspoken person and sometimes I just engage my mouth before I engage my brain".

In what way is this an apology or acceptable justification? The way I read this is that the statement represents his true feelings before he places a societal filter in place. Be a man and own up to what you said and feel, at least we'll know the true you and either way you will be reviled.

There is no denying the slamming of white men is epidemic on the left in Western Civ.. Look in academics, Journalism!, media in general, and there's no question in a large number of Democrat pols. The talk is rarely pushed back on. It is considered acceptable and even taught as 'good think' in colleges.

So who exactly is surprised at this? What game are we playing? This guy thought he was saying something that would get a chuckle and applause. It's worked in other venues.

Darrell said...

Richard Fochtmann should hire Randy Newman to redo "Short People" as "White People."

White people got no reason
White people got no reason
White people got no reason

They got little hands
And little eyes
And they walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty white feet

Well, I don't want no white people
Don't want no white people

A brain is a terrible thing to wash. This guy first wants to be one of the masters of enslaved white captives and only then will he arrange to kill the rest of them for fun. That's the Dems today.

In other words, a typical Libtard. The drunken asshole at the party with no sense of social awareness. The grabby guy at the office party (Joe Biden) who thinks everything is a joke and doesn't understand personal space.

Just what we want in a political leader, President or the Captain of the ship: act without thinking. Do without planing. Damned the consequences! Full speed ahead! While the rest of us are thinking..."I want off this ship. Should I jump overboard or just kill the captain?"

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Why would the largely conservative old white male demographic feel insulted at being poked fun at for how likely they are to kill themselves? Doesn't that support the self-victimhood narrative that they're so fond of peddling nowadays?

Or maybe it just proves that no one's out to get them after all, and that they're really their own worst enemies.

Privilege apparently has its disadvantages after all: You don't know how much worse things can get. You have no clue.

Get a clue, whitey!

I think it just goes to show that the bootstrapping, money-loving ethic of the conservative whites is emptier than they realize. It sucks the soul of nourishment.

Here's some lack of self-awareness: Joe Biden and Donald Trump run for office. How likely do you think it is that Trump will have scores of women attesting to his rapey-ness and creepily illegal space violations than you think Biden would?

We know the answer already. Trumpists need to stop going after people for the same negative things that Trump could win awards for having done.

According to Trump, maybe it's not suicide that's killing off his precious white voters.

robother said...

It is kind of funny that he admits that his first reaction to cheering on white male suicide is that "i shouldn't say it in public" and then he says it (and that reaction) in public. I assume he apologized for saying it in public, not for the sentiment.

There's a reason for mass white male suicide: Being brought up in a sub-culture that only values you for material contributions.

Liberals and minorities don't have this problem.

Try making a selfless ethical contribution to the country, guys. Or even to your community. It feels good. It may even decrease your urge to undertake the pitiful act of killing yourself.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

It is always amazing to me when people make these types of proclamations or make laws that they think will never affect themselves. As if they are exempt from the consequences. Somehow they think that the shit that they are calling down on others will just bypass them.

Their inability to really think things through and ability to deny the reality of the potential of their actions is bad in everyday life. It is really bad when those people are in charge. It feels like we have a bunch of BillyJoeBobs in charge telling us "hold my beer".

Example: The closure of restaurants in Seattle from the consequences of raising wages by about 75% seems to be a big surprise to the proponents of these wages...when anyone who has ever been in business or who understands the economics of real life warned them. Now people are out of business and their employees are out of jobs.

This is just a small example. Wait until someone like Warren or Sanders gets in charge nationwide. The consequences and fall out will be huge.

Leland said...

Is Jeffery Epstein included in those suicide statistics?

robother said...

Depressed out of work blue collar white men, contemplating suicide. Passionate outspoken white Democrat leaders who put them out of work and who yearn for the day when minorities are the majority. A win-win solution there somewhere, if only I could put my (trigger) finger on it.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

DBQ seems to believe that waitressing and restaurant ownership is our means to lower class national economic salvation. Silly me. I just thought it was nice to stop keeping basic life dignity so far from everyone's reach.

Anyway, back in reality-land, it's not likely that Sanders or Warren would implement anything as transformative as what she imagines or even what they propose. It's just initial bid offers to voters who've been trampled way underfoot ever since the conservatwit overlords of our politics have spent decades making sure that the only beneficiaries of our economy worked in finance, executive management or estate inheritance. And as you can see, they are more than happy to push that bid as far as they can. Who can blame them. Not me. Asking for less than the moon esp. with Republicrooks comprising at least 33% of a legislature is the road to political irrelevance if not political suicide. Speaking of suicide...

White men, using their enormous advantages in intelligence and morality, have now taken up the burden of hating white men. The flailing and failed attempts of those other groups were just blips. White men will show you how it's done. A country where white men aggressively limit the aggression of white men is on its way to Utopia. This is just another data point that shows the superiority of the white male.

Tribal suicide sounds like a lamentable thing, but I think the bootstrappers owe it to themselves to figure out why those whom they've fucked so hard don't much lament the bootstrappers' own self-fucking.

There are failed tribes all throughout history and the one thing humanity can learn from them is to not emulate the same arrogant superiority complex that brought them down.

The bootstrappers' tribe has been destroying the social ethic of cooperation, concern and care for all Americans for quite some time. Why are they surprised that this psychology is killing them from within? Until they figure that out, their outrage at whether others care is further proof of their love of failure. They literally care more about whether others care about them than they care enough to even care about themselves. Weird, and destined to fail.

The bootstrapping ideology is where white America goes to die. Only Christian charity will save America. Self-righteousness, selfishness, mammonism and the Trump Cult will not.

President Toilet Paper (if that's his real name) seems confused about the history of Sparta and Athens. Sparta defeated Athens in the Pelopponesian War and was not replaced by Athenians.

Try reading Thucydides, pal, and don't assume you're educated. Clearly, you're not. Also, if you read Thucydides, you will discover how brutal the Athenians were.

The guy who thinks it's great that white men are committing suicide has obviously never had a friend, relative, etc., who committed suicide. What sludge.

In any event, I never realized that the Peloponnesian War destroyed the people of Athens or their cultural legacy as the one which we in the West can claim as our inheritance as a civilization, rather than one in which war and brutality and nationalism and tyranny are our lodestars.

Conspicuously absent from your objects of pity I notice all those white schmucks killing themselves. Again, if you reserved one quarter of the amount of your soul you set aside with hate and division for love and enlightenment, maybe your people wouldn't be killing themselves in such high numbers. Depression they say is anger channeled against oneself. Maybe if white people had more love and less anger they wouldn't be so depressed and suicidal. Telling them to just channel those toxic angers against "others" is no longer the answer.

Hell, I've gone most of my life earnestly wishing for people I don't like to off themselves;

Why would the largely D-voting young black male demographic feel insulted at being poked fun at for how likely they are to kill each other? Doesn't that support the self-victimhood narrative that they're so fond of peddling nowadays?

Or maybe it just proves that no one's out to get them after all, and that they're really their own worst enemies.

Things we shouldn't say in America are hard to nail down, considering the scale of the provocations, and how blatantly they favored one group over all others, presumably for all time.

Demanding people keep quiet about murder, rape, and theft, is just sustaining cruelty from where I sit. Forced historical revisionism, or, at least, a pretend amnesia - but, again, under some kind of threat. Social exclusion, because they're in the position to do that sort of thing - because of what they did that we can't talk about - oops, I'm not supposed to say that, too. See? It's so confusing.

We're animals. And not very bright ones at that. I thought, when I left the ghetto, I'd discover different, but no - we're just animals. That's why all the WWII documentaries remind us the Germans were no different from anyone else. Yes, it could happen hee, and does every day. Making people shut up is just way it's done.

I'm sure Michael K has said something nasty about black people today. I don't see why anyone else should be deprived of the privilege.

It doesn't stop with white masculine males (i.e. color, gender, and sex). This is Hutu vs Tutsi territory. Or Mandela factions lynching competing blacks. Anasazi intratribal genocide. Diversity (i.e. color or low information attribute) judgments breed adversity and rationalization to deny individual dignity and intrinsic value for social justice, social progress, and political leverage.

Yes, it illustrates his hypocrisy. He claims to be upset that a Democrat laughed about white men committing suicide, while he calls another human being an “animal”. What other leader in past history dehumanized fellow humans, causing the death death of 6 million of them and countless more due to his world view?

We can agree about that. It's ridiculous how we're supposed to pretend that blacks don't commit murder, theft, and rape rates at significantly higher rates than whites.

(Noticing that East Asians tend to be more law-abiding than whites seems to be acceptable, though.)

Qwinn said...

Inga,

The fact that you are utterly incapable of differentiating between people saying "Individual X is an animal" or "Gang X (like MS13) are animals" (based on voluntary associations and specific words/actions by that individual/group), and "Race X are animals" (based on stereotypes) speaks volumes.

bagoh20 said...

"What other leader in past history dehumanized fellow humans, causing the death death of 6 million of them and countless more due to his world view?"

There was more than one, but they all touted the same things as the Democrats do today: socialism, and an all powerful big government. The particular one you are referring to identified even more with Democrats in finding racial identity a key factor in who should live or die.

"It's ridiculous how we're supposed to pretend that blacks don't commit murder, theft, and rape rates at significantly higher rates than whites."

White Americans can be like those fools in Yurp, bragging about "soft power" as though I'd forgotten it was America that won the peace, they act like they invented. But white Americans want to pretend I will forget they killed, raped, and stole with impunity for hundreds of years, before blacks we even free to get started. When whites start counting their killing, for comparison, I'm never quite sure because, as any fool knows, if we're talking historically, in America, you can stop pretending it's even a contest - blacks aren't even starting to compete with the numbers whites have wracked up. They practically a race of psychopaths in the eyes of many - still.

ANd this desire to pretend every race in America didn't go through a violent spasm to gain it's foothold in America (Martin Scorcese has made a career of glorfying others doing it to no shame from whites) is just more racist bullshit, from America's racists, still talking shit as they're trying to raise their puny minds out from under the weight of their pathology.

Fuck. You. You're a tiny person and always will be. Blacks are coming up faster, and have more influence in the world, than America has ever seen any group ever before - with or without your help.

Now turn your hat around forward and get the fuck out my face.

The Japanese are suffering through a crisis of suicide. A few years ago, the National Geographic had a pictorial essay on the Aokigahara forest in Japan. This is a popular suicide spot in Japan. Wataru Tsurumi's "The Complete Manual of Suicide" (!!!!) even described the forest as "a perfect place to die." Suicide is the leading cause of death in Japanese men among the ages of 20-44 and for women among the ages of 15 to 34. Not gun violence or AIDs or obesity or whatever the f*ck is killing Americans, but suicide. What the hell is going on? Even though the Japanese have a tradition of military suicide (kamikaze and the samurai nonsense), it is still hard to believe that suicide rates are so high. Japan is a great place to live!!! Much better than United States. Our country kind of sucks. And isn't it strange that the suicide rates in Syria and Afghanistan (and many, many other sh*thole countries) are so much lower than Japan's or ours?

Apart from what this man said, that his comments have been aired like this is a reminder of how social media and mass communication have changed everything. This man is now loathed (or praised) by many millions; this would not have been so a few years ago. I wonder how his life will be different going forward.

With social media and with video cameras in every pocket, the freedom to speak your mind is more dangerous now. I am more circumspect than I ever was. I seldom say my thoughts out loud anymore.
