Many of us openly condemn President Joe Biden‘s rhetoric accusing conservatives of being “extremists” and a danger to the country as likely prompting and even encouraging unhinged people to act with violence on those “warnings.“
And now here we are. A 41-year-old North Dakota man has reportedly admitted to running over Cayler Ellingson, an 18-year-old a teenager, explaining that the victim was part of a “Republican extremist group.”
According to a probable-cause affidavit provided to Fox News Digital, “Brandt stated that the pedestrian called some people and Brandt was afraid they were coming to get him. Brandt admitted to State Radio [a 911 dispatcher] that he hit the pedestrian and that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group.” Cayler did call someone—his mother—to tell her he was being chased. She never heard from him after that.
Making matters worse, the man is already out on a paltry $50,000 bail. The New York Post reports, “The North Dakota man who has been accused of mowing down a teenager over a ‘political argument’ pleaded with the judge not to hold him on bail, saying he does not want to lose his job, house or family because of the high amount. Shannon Brandt, 41, was released on $50,000 bond Tuesday after being charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident in connection with the death of 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson.”
What does it say to society when people charged with simple misdemeanors like ‘parading’ and ‘trespassing’ during the January 6th riot and many are held for months, while a man allegedly committing actual murder because of someone’s political identity is already out and wandering around?
The media watched the Biden administration and knew what their orders were stepping right up perpetuating the dangerous “extremists” libel. Tom Eliot at Grabien News tweeted: “Per @GrabienMedia, just between CNN & MSNBC, Republicans have been cast as ‘extremists’ 4,997 times. CNN: 1,749 times MSNBC: 3,248 times They’ve combined for 73 hours of ‘Republican extremists’ commentary. And this is just 2022.”
And it doesn’t stop there. After Liz Cheney was removed from Republican House leadership in 2021, a USA Today columnist headline vomited up, “After ousting Liz Cheney, Republicans prove they’re a bigger threat than 9/11 hijackers.” Sure, that will create unity and calm things down. Said no one ever.
It is clear the Democrat Party’s campaign theme reflected in their constant rhetoric and parroted by their media sycophants is to drill home the lie that Republicans are “extremists” which is not coincidentally the same euphemism we use for terrorists. These characterizations are so wide-spread and constant it has been as though the Democrats and the Biden administration especially wants there to be violence. They don’t care by whom or against whom, but boy, what an opportunity to declare more emergencies and to commandeer more power.
Cayler’s death is not the first in this trend. In June of 2017, just 5 months after President Trump took office, a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to murder almost two dozen Republicans at a baseball field because he hated Republicans and deemed Trump a “traitor.” Rep. Steve Scalise was seriously wounded in that attack.
Kelly Paul, Senator Rand Paul’s wife, reminds us that there has indeed been a rise in political violence, and despite all the rhetoric by the Democrats that it’s been perpetrated and engineered by Republicans, actual events make it clear that it’s the left committing the atrocities. Against Republicans and Democrats alike. She tweeted:
“Since Lee Zeldin’s stabbing, a Democrat official stabbed a journalist to death and a teen Republican was murdered by a leftist. In Louisville, the mayor was assaulted and a candidate was shot by a leftist. Democrats justify the assault on my husband everyday. Evil abounds.”
So many shocking events disappeared by the liberal media. Remember someone attempting to stab Rep. Lee Zeldin in the neck during a campaign rally? Due to Democrats pro-crime and no-bail policies, that person was released on his own recognizance until finally arrested by federal authorities. Then there’s the Las Vegas locally-elected Democrat official who stabbed to death an investigative journalist who uncovered his corruption. Just recently the Democratic mayor of Louisville was sucker-punched during an event, and earlier in the year the attempted assassin of Louisville Democratic mayoral candidate was, as Fox News reported, “sprung from jail by a BLM jail fund” shelling out $100,000 in the process and has now been indicted and re-arrested by federal authorities.
How many lectures have we endured from fools like Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Democrat leadership, and their media lackies accusing Republicans, conservatives, and Trump supporters in particular of being deplorable, violent, racist, “semi-fascist,” and a danger to democracy? The nation is smeared with those lies, and the media perpetuates the fraud. The unhinged believe they have been given permission to be violent and expect to get away with it.
Of course the horrible outcome of this is exactly what the Democrats want: a more divided, more frightened, more suspicious, more unstable United States.
The Democrats, their sidekicks the Marxists, and the media think we’re idiot schmucks. They are going to receive quite the shock on November 8th when they find out we’re not. We had a hard time believing our fellow Americans would do this to us, but now we know and will not make the same mistake again. It’s too late for Cayler Ellingson, but at his young age he knew being a conservative was important. For him and all who follow, let’s not let them down.
