“Abortion is absolutely nothing latest. The kid sacrifice is a really satanic practice, and that’s precisely what abortion is. And we want to see it as such,” Karamo, a community college professor, said in an Oct. 2020 episode of her podcast.
She also called abortion “the best crime of our nation’s history.”
In one other episode of the podcast, in Sept. 2020, she said that “demonic possession is real” and might be transmitted by “having intimate relationships with people who find themselves demonically possessed or oppressed.”
Karamo’s embrace of conspiracy theories ― including Trump’s lies concerning the 2020 election and false claims that left-wing anarchists were behind the Jan. 6, 2021, revolt ― won her the previous president’s endorsement last 12 months.
She calls herself a “proud Christian patriot” running for Michigan secretary of state to “fight to make certain that elections are decided by legal votes.”
CNN’s KFILE previously reported on other disturbing comments made by Karamo previously, including attacks on the LGBTQ community and premarital sex. She called herself an “anti-vaxxer” even before the COVID-19 pandemic and once claimed that transgender women attempting to play women’s sports amounted to “mentally sick adults playing dress-up.”
Michigan doesn’t hold primary elections for a variety of down-ballot races, including the secretary of state. As an alternative, parties endorse and nominate candidates for the overall election at party conventions. Karamo will face incumbent Democrat Jocelyn Benson within the November election.
