North Dakota Man Allegedly Runs Over and Kills Teen for “Extremist” Republican Views


On Sunday evening, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson was reportedly struck and killed by a vehicle driven by 41-year-old Shannon Brandt in an alleged politically-motivated killing in North Dakota.

The teen attended a street dance in McHenry.

After fleeing the scene, Brandt reportedly told the dispatcher that Ellingson was part of a “Republican extremist group.”

This is the same rhetoric we’ve heard from Democrats, the DHS, FBI, and DOJ.

Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan even said on MSNBC that “we’ve gotta kill and confront that movement” when referring to MAGA Republicans.

The Gateway Pundit added:

Project Veritas released a leaked DHS bulletin on ‘domestic violent extremists’ in wake of the FBI’s raid of Trump’s Florida residence. The DHS told its agents that Americans who discuss topics such as “government overreach” and “election fraud” are a threat.

Last fall, the National School Board Association (NSBA) coordinated with the Biden White House weeks before AG Merrick Garland classified parents “domestic terrorists” in a letter to the FBI.

Big Tech tyrants have added content to a shared counterterrorism “key database” to crack down on “white supremacists and far-right militias.”

This rhetoric has catastrophic consequences.

Grand Forks Herald reported:

According to court papers, it was not an accident but apparently a politically motivated attack.

The fatal vehicle-pedestrian incident happened early Sunday morning, Sept. 18, in McHenry, North Dakota, about 120 miles northwest of Fargo and 54 miles north of Jamestown.

Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up.

By the time she could get there, her son was dead.

Brandt was officially charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

"He was the one who called 911 to report the crash," said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.

Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument.
