A 41-year-old man has been released from jail after murdering a teenager and admitting he did so because he thought the teen was a “Republican extremist.”
A local report noted that the man called 911 and admitted to the hit and run of 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson.
Shannon Brandt, who was freed from the Stutsman County jail in North Dakota after posting a $50,000 bond, said that he murdered the young man because he was “part of a Republican extremist group and that he was afraid they were ‘coming to get him.’”
Valley News Live reported:
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.
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.
Brandt was charged with criminal vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crash involving a death but his release from jail while January 6 protestors continue to be held without trial shows without a doubt that there is a two-tiered justice system in America, and Democrats are quite literally allowed to get away with murder.
The politically motivated murder comes after President Joe Biden has been riling up his base, convincing them that all Republicans are “domestic terrorists” who represent a “dangerous extremist threat.”
Joining Biden, Democrat leadership and the mainstream media on the left have also been peddling the narrative that Republicans pose a serious threat to America. In fact, the gullible Democrat voter-base has actually largely bought into this divisive rhetoric.
According a recently conducted Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll, 73 percent of Democrats believe “there are tens of millions of dangerous MAGA Republicans backing violence and trying to overthrow the constitution.”
Biden and company have been desperately trying to paint a target on the backs of Republican voters as they have run out of all conventional options to try and maintain power.
Considering these on-going efforts by the left, it’s no surprise that we are starting to see Democrats get violent with conservatives and this brutal murder could be the first of more to come, especially if the administration doubles down on this irresponsible anti-Republican propaganda push.
