    Background

    Suzanne Genz Ianni is the Operations Director for Super Happy Fun America (SHFA) and has also been active in founding Citizens Organized to Restore Rights (CORR) North, the chapter of CORR based in Peabody, MA.

    She is a former member of the Natick Town Meeting — an elected position that she held when she participated in the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

    She organized 11 buses from Newton, MA, to Washington, DC, to transport Trump supporters to the January 6th events.

    She was photographed inside the Capitol building alongside fellow SHFA leader Mark Sahady, and was later arrested. In September 2022 she pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in a Capitol building.

    She complained when the Natick Town Meeting voted overwhelmingly to condemn the riot, calling the resolution a “political persecution of conservatives,” according to MetroWest Daily News.

    She has since changed her registered address to Saugus. Ianni helped plan the “Rise Against Tyranny” rally on Boston Common on November 7, 2021.

They are walking on a paved surface with many other people, some of whom are wearing MAGA hats. Various flags are held by the marchers, including another straight pride flag, a Gadsden flag, an American flag, a thin blue line flag, and a multi-colored flag that has a message about Trump that is partially obscured.

    Sue Ianni quotes from CORR meetings:

    “We’ve all seen that flag, it’s all over this country. It’s a rainbow flag that says PEACE on it. What that really is, it is no different than the Nazi flag, it is a flag of intimidation, it is a flag of shut up, comply, and never rise up again conservatives, but we are rising up!”

    “One of the goals of the group [CORR North] is to do workshops on prepping, so maybe sometime we’ll take people outside and teach people how to fire a gun…The pastor was right when he called us patriot soldiers, we’re fighting a war.”
