A Michigan area city council candidate not only publicly expressed a desire to keep the St. Clair County cit of Marysville "a white community as much as possible," but also doubled down on that Trumpism era bit of outright racism with some expounding.
"My suggestion, recommendation [is] keep Marysville a white community as much as possible," city council candidate Jean Cramer, who's trying to secure one of three open council seats, said in response to a question about the diversity of the area. Cramer also explicitly called for "no foreign born people" while speaking in a meandering and generally annoying manner.
As Cramer answered first, her "white community" nonsense was subsequently met with shock from others including candidate Mike Deising and Wayne Pyden, who's running unopposed for mayor.
Cramer later told the Times Herald that "husband and wife need to be the same race" and even used creationist tomfoolery to back up her stupidity.
"That's how it's been from the beginning of, how can I say, when God created the heaven and the earth," Cramer said. "He created Adam and Eve at the same time. But as far as me being against blacks, no I'm not."
Simultaneously, there was confusion online in which another town named Marysville—the one in Washington—started receiving calls and emails from those who believed all this shit went down there. At least one article, per KOMO, inaccurately included a photo of the Marysville, Washington municipal court in its coverage.
