"These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty. These type of guys. They come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we've got to deal with down the road."Such a dangerous brush with reality simply can't be tolerated by the far left.
Under pressure by the mainstream Marxist media for telling the truth about thugs of color who poison culture with their criminal, ratchet behavior, the governor back peddled, referring to his moment of refreshing honesty as "a slip of the tongue."
While the media has the minds of Americans entrapped in denial, illegal drug trafficking remains a core problem in Maine.

Less than 48 hours after using racially-charged language to explain his state's drug epidemic, Maine Gov. Paul LePage at a Friday news conference semi-apologized for his wording "slip-up" but accused the press of trying to twist his words.
"I made one slip-up," LePage conceded. "I may have made many slip-ups. I was going impromptu in my brain, didn't catch up to my mouth. Instead of saying, 'Maine women,' I said, 'White women.' I'm not going to apologize to the Maine women for that because if you go to Maine you will see we are essentially 95 percent white."
Later he clarified, "If I slipped up and used the wrong word, then I apologize to all the Maine women."
Alluding to one of the "Rocky" movies, LePage told reporters at the press conference, "Yous don't like me and I don't like you."
"You're in the back pocket of Maine bloggers," he continued, referencing the site that first highlighted his remarks. That blog, called Get Right Maine, is run by Lance Dutson, a Republican operative.
Asked at a town hall meeting on Wednesday night what his administration was doing to combat the state's drug issues, LePage referenced new legislation aimed at traffickers, then delivered his roiling explanation.
"These aren't the people who take drugs," LePage said, in comments first picked up by the Portland Press Herald. "These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty. These type of guys. They come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we've got to deal with down the road."
LePage denied using names like "Smoothie" for their racial connotation.
