The man charged with fatally hitting and running over a North Dakota teen justified the act by echoing the same “extremism” rhetoric President Joe Biden wielded against Republicans during his most recent address.
Shannon Brandt, 41, mowed down 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson early Sunday morning over what he later claimed was a “political argument” over whether “the teen was part of a Republican extremist group.” That language strongly resembles the description used by Biden just a few weeks ago to describe Trump and “MAGA Republicans” as being “a threat to the very soul of this country.” In that speech, Biden claimed it was Republicans who had “blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence”
Despite recently claiming that combatting political violence and domestic extremism is a top priority for the agency, the FBI avoided answering The Federalist’s questions about whether it plans to investigate the motives for the alleged homicide. Instead, the FBI suggested The Federalist contact “local authorities” for more information about the crime.
As of Tuesday night, corporate media outlets, which amplified Biden’s shaming of MAGA Republicans, had not covered the killing.
