A global “news” outlet has accused a black female Republican candidate of spouting “incendiary Christian nationalist statements” for encouraging Christians to share the gospel. The story also deceptively edited her comments to twist her criticism of Planned Parenthood into an allegation that Satanic elites drink children’s blood.

Vice News claimed that Kristina Karamo, Republican candidate for Michigan Secretary of State, has a “history of transphobic, homophobic, and incendiary Christian nationalist statements.”

To define the term Christian nationalism, the reporter twice linked to an apolitical statement that does not mention nations, government, or politics.

Karamo expressed her purportedly “Christian nationalist” views in a four-year-old post titled “We are to be Watchmen,” a reference to dozens of Bible verses calling on believers to warn their fellow citizens of spiritual danger. The since-deleted devotional encourages Christians not to weary in sharing the gospel or obeying God’s commandments in their own lives.

“Christians are ridiculed for our belief, that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, and is the only way to eternity with God,” wrote Karamo in September 2018. “[T]he very individuals that we may think we are fighting, we’re actually trying to save, by sharing the Gospel. … And God needs us to help bring as many people as we can, to Him.”

Christian life also requires following “moral laws,” because “when we have faith in Jesus, we are transformed by the Holy Spirit.”

“Don’t be afraid,” she concluded. “[S]tay strong in faith.”
