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.
