Mark G. Sahady is the Vice President of Super Happy Fun America and a founding member of Citizens Organized to Restore Rights (CORR) North, the chapter of CORR based in Peabody, MA. He works in IT and he lives in Malden, MA with his mother. Sahady was arrested for his role in the January 6th Capitol Riot in Washington, DC, and his court case is ongoing (Lipkin, 2022). 

Sahady is a founding member of Resist Marxism. He attended the Second Boston Free Speech Rally (Sahady, n.d.) which took place one week after the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville and included multiple white supremacist and alt right speakers (DeCosta-Klipa et al., 2017). Later that year, in November 2017, Sahady organized the “Rally for the Republic” where he recruited white supremacist paramilitary groups including the Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, and American Guard to provide security (North Shore Antifa, 2017).  

In June 2018, Sahady was photographed [1] armed at a violent Proud Boys action in Portland, Oregon (Niewert, 2018). In December 2018, Sahady organized an immigration “debate” at Berklee College and recruited Patriot Front, a neo-Nazi organization, to provide security (Antifash Gordon, 2019). At the event, Sahady was photographed with Patriot Front’s then leader Chris Hood [2]. Hood would later go on to found the Nazi organization NSC-131

In 2019, Resist Marxism rebranded itself as Super Happy Fun America and Sahady, through SHFA, signed on as an organizer of the Straight Pride parade (Ruckstuhl and Chanatry, 2019). 

At the January 6th Capitol Riot, Sahady was photographed inside the Capitol building alongside fellow SHFA leader Sue Ianni, and was later arrested (Lipkin, 2022). Following his arrest, Sahady was ordered by the court to stay away from the Massachusetts State House and not attend protests without prior approval (Gavin, 2021).

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.
Mark Sahady displays his ideas about humanity here in these images from his facebook feed.
Notice the post from Paul McGillicuddy that Sahady liked.
