Background:

Dianna Ploss is a right-wing radio personality from Swampscott, MA. She ran for governor in 2022 on an independent platform of Christian nationalism. Her campaign included a “proud Holocaust denier” and a “minister of Third Reich Advocacy.” She also promotes conspiracy theories about 9/11 and pro-Hitler documentaries. She claims that many people including Charlie Baker and the MA Human Rights Commission are agents of the Chinese Communist Party.

Ploss lost her Nashua, NH, radio show in July 2020 after publicly berating a Spanish-speaking landscape crew to speak English. She has also been banned from Twitter and Facebook for racist speech. She organized weekly pro-Trump rallies in Swampscott in 2020 that regularly escalated to violence and racist speech. She then led anti-semitic and anti-vaccine actions elsewhere in Massachusetts.

Dianna Ploss’s Stated Political Platform:

  • No speech should ever be off limits, including perceived “hate speech,” which is nonsense. Offend everyone.
  • The Tyrants in Our Government also plan to forcefully inject your children with the Biological Weapon known as the “Covid-19 vaccine.”
  • There are only two genders – male and female.
  • Protect your children by removing them from Public and Private Schools that push Common Core, CRT, Gender Nonsense, etc…
  • There are many subversive groups in Massachusetts undermining Our State and United States Constitutions, and Our Bill of Rights. These groups include, but are not limited to, Antifa, Black Lives Matter…
  • The 2020 Election was stolen from ‘We the People’ and from President Donald J. Trump.
