Maine Republican Governor Paul LePage Says NAACP can “Kiss My Butt”



Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage tells NAACP they can “kiss my butt”. The comment was in response to criticism LePage received from the NAACP for refusing to attend an event at the state prison it’s sponsoring on behalf of Martin Luther King Day. Maine? Finally, from of all places, a Mainiac politician with some stones … maybe Collins and Snowewill learn a thing or two.  However, its not like the NAACP can play the race card and call LePage a racist, the governor is dad to a adopted black Jamaican son.

Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage is keeping up his reputation for blunt language, telling an unhappy NAACP chapter that they can “kiss my butt.”

The governor made the comments to CNN affiliate WCSH after being asked about criticism he received from the organization for refusing to attend an event it is sponsoring on behalf of Martin Luther King Day.


“If they want to play the race card my son will talk to them.”

“They are a special interest. End of story…and I’m not going to be held hostage by special interests. And if they want, they can look at my family picture. My son happens to be black, so they can do whatever they’d like about it,” LePage said.

The governor has an adopted son from Jamaica, according to WSCH.

      First I want to say that I did not vote for this guy! Lepage needs to remember he is no longer on the streets of Waterville. As governor he needs to have decorum and act professionally which he obviously does not possess since when he opens his mouth nothing but trash seems to come out! If he didn’t want to attend this function he could of politely declined but his style is to be rude & throw stones and mean words after. What a child! He will make Maine the laughing stock of the nation. Susan Collins & Olympia Snowe must be reeling with embarrassment! Maybe we can impeach this guy! We need you Mr. Cutler! I don’t know if his mother is still alive and if she is she probably wants to put him in his placetoo! Yeah, she’d be so proud…..NOT!
      SM: A politician stands up for what is right and you find that wrong? No wonder Maine has elected so many fools in the past. You finally have a governor with some stones. Learn to like it.

      It’s not just that he said what he believes, it is his word choice. He is denigrating the highest office in Maine by talking like a street thug. And by saying that he will not be held hostage by “special interests”… will he meet with the NRA when they come a calling? And where was he when he said this? At a meeting of business leaders… that screams “special interest” to me! Hypocrate
      SM: Do you even know what the back story is? The NAACP wanted the GOV to go to a prison and only meet with black prisoners. He asid he would go if he met with all, not just blacks. What part does the LEFT not comprehend that LePage is Gov to all, not just blacks that the NAACP wants to represent. Actually, its about time these racism smear merchants were put in their pace.

      What ever happened to:….”sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”! Have we become so thin skinned over mere words? Really?! Granted, his choice of words could have been a tad more diplomatic, but no one can accuse him of being phony. His work ethic is to be admired, and used to set an example for young people to earn what they receive. Governor LePage has spent the last few days meeting with citizens who have been suffering in a business climate that is last in the nation; just like he said he was going to. That is what he is concerned with. He is simply not concerned with putting on political airs for the purpose of furthering the private cause, and special interests of the ACLU. It seems that the very same people who condemn the political establishment for catering to special interests, are the same citizens who feel that our government should cater to every ACLU whim. If he does it for them, he must do it for all; and that will eat into the time needed to fix the mess in Augusta.
