Those are all accurate descriptors used or borrowed by Secretary of State Nominee Adrian Fontes to describe his deranged-extremist-election and reality denying-January 6, 2021 collaborator/insurrectionist-Trump Republican opponent Mark Finchem in the last several days.
Earlier today, Mr. Fontes, reacting to revelations that Mr. Finchem accused former Vice President Mike Pence of staging a coup against Donald Trump on January 6, 2021, because he dared to take steps to save lives while the soon to be twice impeached former White House occupant did nothing while watching television other than wishing the domestic terrorists (including participant Finchem) success, posted on social media:
Mark Finchem, the Republican nominee for Arizona secretary of state, has been subpoenaed by the January 6th Congressional Committee and was present at the capitol during the insurrection.
He is dangerous.

Fontes also reminded the readers that Mr. Finchem has been subpoenaed by the January 6 Committee.
Before that posting, the Fontes campaign retweeted this posting from the JCRC of Greater Phoenix after the supporter of Anti-Semitic candidates (Finchem) issued a tweet that accused Democrats of being beholden to Jewish billionaires George Soros and Mike Bloomberg. The organization rightfully called Finchem an embarrassment.
.@RealMarkFinchem: your reliance on #antisemitic tropes to spearhead your campaign is an embarrassment to the majority of #Arizona residents and serves to reinforce that you cannot be trusted to serve as our Secretary of State. https://t.co/qYVeBXACcu

Earlier in the week, responding to a request for comment from Blog for Arizona, Mr. Fontes agreed that Mr. Finchem is a good example of President Biden’s branding of Trump Republicans as Semi-Fascist, writing:
“I agree with that description but only as to a small, vocal part of the GOP. The extremist wing of the Republican party, which my opponent is a part of, poses an existential threat to capitalism, social norms, and our democratic republic.”
Mr. Fontes has also described, on numerous occasions, Mr. Finchem as a traitor, for his participation in the January 6, 2022, attempted insurrection.
Mark Finchem is a dangerous, embarrassing, traitorous, reality-denying, and Anti-Semitic fringe extremist figure who should never be entrusted with the levers of power in the Secretary of State’s office.
Voters need to send him into political exile by saying a resounding no at the ballot box 55 days from now on November 8, 2022.
