Old Hater Cheers Suicides

Old Hater Cheers Suicides

The USA got an instructive lesson in the ancient hatred towards Americans of Christian, European descent last week.

In the 39-second video, which first surfaced in April 2017, then-chairman of the Leeds Democratic Committee Richard Fochtmann addressed an audience at a public forum held by the Maine Democratic Party about the need to encourage more young people to move to Maine before making his controversial remarks.

“Today I saw a thing and it said a lot of men, white men, were committing suicide, and I almost thought, ‘Yeah, great,’” he said, eliciting laughter from the audience. “Then I thought about it little more, and I thought maybe I shouldn’t say that out in public.”

White men accounted for nearly 70 percent of suicide deaths in 2017, and men are three times more likely to die from suicide than women, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The Fochtmann mask-slip was further publicised when Donald Trump slammed him for it on Friday afternoon: “What kind of an animal is this?” Trump tweeted Friday night. Good question!
