Governor who warned of drug dealers impregnating white girls now has some thoughts on the guillotine

Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) on Tuesday appeared on a Maine radio station and said some stuff about Maine, which you should probably listen to if you are into Maine-related news items. But mostly, we’d direct your attention to the end of the interview, in which LePage suggested reviving the use of the guillotine.

The governor’s office said the guillotine comment was a joke, the AP reported.

But anyway, below you’ll find a rush transcript from the WVOM interview, which picks up right after a question about harsher penalties for those who bring drugs into the state. You might remember LePage, by the way, from his recent turn using some racially loaded language to describe the state’s heroin problems.

    … with LePage having been elected 3-times in ti-partisan plurality elections; Apparently Maine voters are all smarter than Democrats (we’re only talking about an 60+ I.Q. here. …)!!!

    I don’t see where the Governor was racist. If the rapist were drug pushers and the girls raped were white where is this racist. Maybe that was the objective of the drug pushers to drug and rape white girls. If one black girl had been raped and the Governor had said the drug pushers raped black girls. What then… This Politically Correct crap is just plain crap.
    There is only one way to be offended and is to choose to be offended. No one needs to be so sensitive as to feel offended at everything. I swear people are going out of their way to find something to be offended about. Grow up… The ideal situation now would be to forget this PC crap and unite in a common goal to be Americans first and forget the sensitive crap. We are facing a common enemy called ISIS. Let’s focus on that for a change. Vote Crump.

    I consider the guillotine one of the most effective, humane, and painless ways to execute. Never heard of a lawsuit from anyone complaining that it was taking way too long to die from it, or that it was possible to feel excruciating pain while it was being done.

      My husband said the same thing, just the other night!

  • Luke

    Any mention of punishing criminals will get the liberals panties in a wad quickly..

    Like the way this Gov thinks, but who needs a guillotine, with all these ugly radical mu-slimes in OUR country, ready to chop off heads?
    Question: With the drug dealers, which ‘head’ will get chopped??
