Sahady speaking to a group of white men outside at a march
Mark Sahady hosted a Resist Marxism “debate” on immigration in December 2019. He used Patriot Front, a neo-Nazi organization for security. Here’s Sahady with Chris Hood (tan hat), who was the head of the Massachusetts Patriot Front cell at the time. Today (2020) Hood is a spokesman for the Nationalist Social Club (NSC). Political Research Associates said NSC “embraces anti-Black racism and are deeply anti-Semitic”. In response to an upsurge of activity by the Nationalist Social Club the Boston area, the Globe ran an article about Hood describing him as part of “A fairly devout group of Neo-Nazis.” and saying, “Local white supremacist group has been active in recent weeks” – Danny McDonald, Globe Staff, Updated July 14, 2020

Screenshots of posts from Sahady:

Collage of Mark Sahady's Pinochet memes on Facebook, includes text like "Not being a Marxist is not enough, we must be anti-marxist" and "Pinochet's helicopter tours, communists ride free."
Free helicopter rides refers to the practice of the Chilean Dictator Augusto Pinochet whose
military would throw dissidents out of helicopters. It is also associated with the Argentinian
Dirty War (1976 – 1983) when the military executed or “disappeared” over 10,000 citizens. It is
a meme favored by the alt-right.
Three facebook posts by Mark Sahady. The first is undated and has a purple background with white text that reads, "ALL LIVES MATTER." A commenter Hont Honkington writes "WRONG!" and Mark Sahady responds "They matter until they become communists. Then they aren't really lives any more." The second and third posts are the same. It's from June 11. On a purple patterned background, black text reads, "Blockade Antifa's new nation in Seattle, let them die of starvation, remove the dead bodies, and then reclaim the land for America." A commenter called Jeremy Wood writes "Drone strike" and a commenter Paul McGillicuddy writes "Putting George Floyd in a gold plated casket is like putting a tuxedo on a garbage can." Mark Sahady liked that comment.

Notice the post from Paul McGillicuddy that Sahady liked.
