SAY WHAT?

Mike Detmer, a Republican primary candidate in the 8th District with hopes of facing Elissa Slotkin (D-Rochester, Rochester Hills) in November, has a bit of a habit of espousing what some would call White Nationalist sentiments. At a recent rally at the Michigan Capital that promoted “well-regulated militias” (are there any other kind?), Detmer, of Howell, proclaimed, “This whole race nonsense is fake.” Countering the current Black Lives Matter watchword, Detmer said, “Here’s the reality: If you are someone of faith, you understand that all lives matter.” Detmer continued. ‘It was decided by the blood of Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago.’” If readers recall, in April Detmer was featured in a Facebook post defending the Proud Boys, a neo-fascist group. When confronted, rather than renounce them, he instead stated that “the Proud Boys had been wrongly labeled as a racist hate group.”
