North Dakota man kills teen after political dispute, claimed victim was ‘Republican extremist’


A North Dakota man has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident after beating and killing a teenager in what prosecutors call a politically motivated attack.

Authorities allege that 41-year-old Shannon Brandt beat and murdered 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson during a street dance in McHenry, North Dakota.

Ellingson had called his mother to come to his rescue when Brandt chased him after the street dance had ended.

According to the Grand Forks Herald, court documents indicate that the suspect was the one who alerted authorities via a 911 call that he had beaten the teen.

The Herald reports that Brandt claimed Ellingson was “part of a Republican extremist group and called on people to come and get Brandt after a political argument.”

Details of the confrontation are still being resolved as authorities indicate that Brandt knew the teen’s mother from North Dakota and was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

“We know of no witnesses. We are still making efforts to interview potential witnesses to the street dance, people who were present prior to the crash,” North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind told reporters.

But Brandt’s own 911 call reportedly defines the victim as a “Republican extremist.”

The court papers indicate it was a “politically motivated attack,” according to the Herald.

Brandt is set to appear in court on October 11 and could face a minimum 10-year prison sentence over a DUI on his state, with the charge potentially earning him a 20-year prison term.

Biden Hits Republican Extremists

While there is no apparent external link to the case of the North Dakota teen who was murdered by someone who accused them of being part of a “Republican extremist group,” the incident comes amid divisive rhetoric from a White House. that repeatedly Republicans in the same light.

President Biden delivered a speech earlier this month in which he defamed “MAGA Republicans” as extremists and a “threat to this country,” speaking from a set bathed in blood-red light, in front of a backdrop of Marines.

A few days later, he used similar terms in a fundraiser for Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

“Extreme Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security, they embrace political violence,” Biden said.

Political Insider Becky Noble reported that his “MAGA extremists” speech backfired with new polls showing Americans are more concerned about what’s happening to the country because of left-wing socialists.

Brandt, however, was clearly more concerned about the Republican threat, according to court documents, and the suggestion that the North Dakota teen was calling on people to help with political violence.
