Democrat kills Republican teen in North Dakota, and mainstream media ignores the crime


A North Dakota teenager has been slain by a politically motivated Democrat for the crime of being a Republican. The Sunday incident happened 120 miles northwest of Fargo, in McHenry, North Dakota.

41-year-old Shannon Brandt allegedly used his vehicle to chase and run over 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson following a political dispute. Brandt has told the police he ran him over because he was a Republican.

The slaying of the Republican teenager has not been reported by the New York Times, as of Tuesday morning. Yet, in 2017, when a neo-Nazi ran his car into a leftist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, the death of Heather Heyer was reported at length, and the media blamed President Donald Trump.

The mainstream media is not blaming President Joe Biden for Ellingson’s death, even though earlier this month Biden called for a “continued battle” for the nation’s very “soul” against “MAGA Republicans” who “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” Biden, inciting hatred against Republicans, called them “a threat to democracy.”

According to local news reports, at 2:35 am Sunday, Brandt called 911 to report that he had hit a pedestrian who was part of a Republican extremist group.

“After visiting the scene where the incident happened, deputies went to Brandt’s house in Glenfield, ND, which is about 12 minutes from the crash scene. Brandt admitted to consuming alcohol before the incident, and stated he hit Ellingson with his car because he had a political argument with him. Brandt also admitted to deputies that he initially left the crash scene, then returned to call 911, but left again before deputies could arrive,” Valley News Live reported.

“Court documents say just before the crash, Ellingson called his mom and asked if they knew who Brandt was. She said yes, and told her son she was on her way to pick him up. A short time later, court documents say Ellingson called his mom again to say that “he” or “they” were chasing him. It was after the second call that Ellingson could not be reached again,” the news group reported.

Brandt has been charged with criminal vehicular homicide and driving under the influence. Bail was set at $50,000.


  1. Leftists continue to demonstrate exactly how toddler like they really are. Incapable of understanding that everyone will not agree with them, and their only reaction is to lash out violently.
    When they commit a violent act, it is free speech. When a conservative exercises their right to free speech, it is literally violence.

  2. vehicular homicide? Really? this is a simple premeditated murder, does it matter what the weapon was? this guy simply chose to run this kid over rather than knife or shoot him.

  3. Liberal perspective: This man should have the book thrown at him. Sounds to me like there’s a lot to charge for here as well; not the least of which being clear admitted premeditated intent/motive which should pile onto the charges.

    I can’t believe bail is 50k with that being admitted/known. Lives thrown away and families in turmoil just like that. With no way of bringing back what was lost the least the justice system can do is make an example to show other hopefuls that this kind of thing will not be tolerated. 50k what a disgrace.

    • Agree with most of what you wrote there Liberal Alaskan. With two major differences.
      1. Choosing to use the legal system to “set an example” is wrong. Either we are all equal under the law, or there is no law. If there was not sufficient evidence to “pile on the charges” it is wrong to arrest them for charges that exceed what is warranted. Now, that does not mean the trial will be for vehicular manslaughter, and a host of lower level charges, but first/second degree murder might not be warranted by the evidence.
      2. Bail is set based on whether the defendant is considered a flight risk or not. It is not set based on how sensational the crime is. While I do not think $50K is a high enough bail, the suspect is not likely to flee either, so setting a ridiculous level of bail is no necessarily warranted.

  4. “Criminal vehicular homicide…?” Running down a non-threatening pedestrian with a vehicle to kill him constitutes a first-degree murder. The ND prosecutor must immediately present this information, along with the ND statute that defines murder, to a grand jury. With an indictment in hand, the prosecutor should return to the court and ask that bail be revoked.

    The New York Times is the chief propaganda organ of the Democratic Party and the Biden regime. No one should be surprised by the Times’ aversion to reporting that a leftist maniac has murdered an 18-year-old Republican.

  5. This is clearly Trunp’s fault. If he hadn’t been elected POTUS in 2016, Mr. Brandt would have had no reason to run over that young Republican who would have just continued voting for Nazi/Russian insurrectionists.

  6. A dark complexion person ran over some Christmas parade revelers (how many, 11?) and very little was said. Look at that bail, a whopping $50K. Maybe it was the car’s fault, we need car control.

    • That fellow was running from the cops and the investigation showed that was the intent—not killing parade attendees. Most of the time, local killings don’t get national attention. Heather Heyer’s death was widely publicized because the Charlottesville rally was national news, even before all of the violence. (Many Americans consider it news when a bunch of white supremacist hold a large, well advertised rally to harp on Jews, blacks, immigrants, and gay folks.)

      • MRAK Fan: The point went right over your head or something. Good though that you debated an imaginary person that thought Charlottesville shouldn’t have been national news. I can imagine that imaginary person is feeling really embarrassed now. High five.

  7. This is so sad and very disturbing. Thanks to POS lying, diaper-wearing, corrupt, senile Biden, who definitely INCITED VIOLENCE in his demon speech a few weeks ago!! More blood on Biden’s hands!!! The dems are certainly EVIL!! Look what they are trying to do to our beautiful country!!!! Sick and mentally ill – every last one of them!! RIP Cayler Ellingson. So sad! ?

  8. Rest In Peace Cayler Ellingson.
    Aaron Danielson, David Dorn, and Ashlii Babbitt.

    Thank you for covering this S.D. ?

  9. I am sure the Republican teen won the informal debate. It never ends well for a democrat. Democrats and Democracy ideology always end with violence and poor sportsmanship.

  10. Very sad commentary on the state where I spent many good and formative years and where I often refer to as “crime free” especially in the eastern half!!

    • Let me try to follow your logic. And, forgive me, due to the brevity of your comment, I am forced to make several assumptions. I could be wrong.
      I think you are implying that Trump spent four years spreading hate, therefore, it is inevitable that someone will try to kill a conservative. This would imply a few things.
      1. The actions of an individual are to be considered the actions of a whole segment of society based on their membership in a group.
      2. Deciding to harm an individual because they disagree with your political position is to be expected.
      3. Adult discourse and debate is not to be expected if you label someone a hater. Even if that label is without justification.
      How about doing the adult thing here and blaming the person who committed the crime? If a politician gets you so worked up that you feel the need to lash out violently, it is you, not the politician that is to blame. If you choose to riot, it is YOU who made the choice, not whatever cause you are rioting over.
      Trying to blame a politician that has been out of office for almost two years is laughable. It is what children do, not rational adults.

  11. I can not believe this .. What is happening to this world that we live in ?? Why can’t people just wake up !!!

  12. No Justice No Peace let’s riot and burn city’s down. Oh wait we’re the right we don’t respond like a child. We bring awareness and hopefully justice though what a slap of disrespect such a small bond. Kyle R clearly self defense bond was set at 2 million
