Aria DiMezzo, a “transgender satanist anarchist,” won the Republican nomination for sheriff in Cheshire County, New Hampshire.
DiMezzo, whose campaign slogan is “F âââ the police,” won a resounding election, winning 4,211 votes. The second-place candidate received only 351 votes.
The candidate said the Cheshire County Republican Party and the New Hampshire Republican Party had not offered to help her campaign, and she “can’t imagine they are happy” with the primary victory. County party chair Marilyn Huston offered her congratulations but called DiMezzo “him”. According to New Hampshire Journal, DiMezzo identifies as a woman.
Huston said DiMezzo’s motivation for running as a Republican was his inability to run for the ballot as a libertarian. The president said DiMezzo was invited to party meetings but did not attend. DiMezzo ran as a Libertarian in 2018, but says the two-party system is not compatible with third-party execution.
“There are a lot of very strong libertarian candidates, and they are doing a very good job,” said DiMezzo. âAt the end of the day, the United States is a country with two parties, and that won’t change anytime soon.â
DiMezzo is the founder of the Satanic Reform Church and has described herself as a âlibertarian anarchistâ and a âtranssexualâ. If elected, she pledged not to enforce victimless crimes, including prostitution, drug possession and immigration law violations.
âSweet Satan, how can you not be an anarchist ?! Between 75% and 80% of primary voters – those who would be more politically aware than the average voter – were completely and totally unaware of who they were voting for, âshe said. wrote. âWhat is the percentage of the average voter? 90%? 95%? These people decide who will rule you. ”
DiMezzo demanded that Cheshire County and New Hampshire separate from the United States.
On her campaign website, she said the two main political parties were “child murderers” and argued that her victory was proof of a broken political system.
âI am running for the sheriff because I oppose this same system, and the sheriff has the most practical ability in Cheshire County to oppose this system,â she wrote. “The system that let you down by allowing me – the creepy transgender Anarchist Satanist – to be your sheriff candidate is the same system I’m attacking. I’m sorry, and I know it hurts to hear, but this system is a lie.”
âRepublicans and Democrats are the parties of hostility, aggression, taxation, military-style policing, unconstitutional mandates, states of emergency, endless war and murder. children around the world. ”
DiMezzo will face Ed Rivera, the four-term Democratic incumbent on November 3.
