It is amazing that people still do not seem to understand the impact social media can have on their lives away from the Internet. Michigan State Senate candidate Michael Saari is the latest to learn this hard lesson from an at times cruel and unforgiving Internet.
Saari has officially ended his campaign for Republican Mike Kowall’s senate seat after a series of disturbing social media comments surfaced online. In the first comment to go viral, Saari attacked the judge over the Larry Nassar sexual abuse case by calling her a “feminazi.” The disgraced candidate went on to say he wondered what would happen if her husband asked for a “BJ.”
Judge was wrong for her personal vocal opinions on record… That should be a crime against jurisprudence itself… Lastly, what do you think this feminazi judge would say if her husband asked for a BJ?
Saari released the following statement in regards to the Facebook comment.
I am going to recuse myself. I’m dropping out of the race. On the news, my explanation was clear that this has nothing to do with Nassar, this has everything to do with the judge because she left open the possibility of appeal. It would cost taxpayers’ more money because of her, the judge’s, ineptness. It was never to protect Nassar. The sentencing was proper.
Like many shitty comments before Saari’s, a screenshot of the comment quickly went viral, which led to discovering more vile statements publically made by the former candidate.
In a racially charged post from March 11, 2016, Saari claims the black race is culturally stealing from the white race and invading all-white neighborhoods. Saari claims he is not racist, he is just stating “some of the facts.”
First it was golf, then hockey, then hunting, now fly fishing? It’s amazing to see how this culture desperately struggles to imitate and shadow white people activities to allow them nothing without a black presence. I think if white people started walking around with one thumb up their ass and the other thumb in there mouth there would be plenty of blacks doing the same. Blacks simply refuse to allow caucasians to have anything alone and without them. It wasn’t that long ago America used to have small white towns only to have the blacks move in and destroy every single one of them while knowing full well they weren’t wanted in the first place. Before you going on the berserk defense, let me just end this by saying I’m not racist, just speaking some of the facts and I’m not going to get into the prison percentages of blacks, aids, rapes, etc. It’s frustrating when society will not lawfully allow whites to have anything of their own without them, But blacks can have BET, Black awards, carp fishing and others.
Saari’s racist commentary was not the worse thing the former candidate said on social media. In a comment from November 2016, Saari defended taking girls — “Prior to periods” — as young as 12-years-old as “wives and concubines.” He goes on to say women are making a relationship with a 12-year-old sound sick. Saari claims these women cannot “get a grip on reality.
Woman don’t seem to understand that from the very beginning of time men have taken young girls (Prior to periods) as wives and concubines. Even the bible talks of this so don’t make it sound like men that are attracted to 12 year old girls are sick… it’s you woman [sic] that can’t get a grip on reality is whats sick…it’s only normal and you can’t change normal or a persons DNA.
On Thursday, Patch reported that Saari denied making either comment, claiming it went against his character. Saari claimed Chaldeans had been extremely supportive of him. “I was almost a shoe-in.”
I’ve never made those comments. It’s not my character. I don’t want chaos in my community. I don’t want hatred in my community. I care enough about my community to step back. I know these people in this community. They are in tears.
