“Brandt told State Radio that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group”
A 41-year-old man ran down a teenager with his vehicle in North Dakota this week, killing him. The suspect later claimed that the teen was part of an extremist Republican group.
What’s the first thing you think of when you hear that?
I don’t know about you, but my mind immediately flashes to Biden’s speech in Philadelphia.

Man admits to killing teen after political dispute in Foster Co., court docs allege
A community is mourning the loss of an 18-year-old man from Grace City, North Dakota, as investigators look into what led up to a deadly crash. Foster County Deputies were called to a hit-and-run that happened in an alleyway near Johnston Street and Jones Avenue in McHenry, ND.
Court documents say at 2:35 Sunday morning, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt called 911 to report that he had hit a pedestrian because he was threatening him. Brandt told State Radio that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group and that he was afraid they were “coming to get him.” The pedestrian has been identified in a GoFundMe page as 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson.
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.
InForum has more on this:
Police say Brandt was drunk when he hit and killed Ellingson with his SUV in an alleyway.
“We do not know of any witnesses. We are still making attempts to interview potential witnesses from the street dance, people that were present prior to the crash happening,” Niewind said.
A judge ordered Brandt held on $50,000, which he objected, saying he’s not a flight risk.
“I have a job, a life and a house and things I don’t want to see go by the wayside — family that are very important to me,” Brandt told the judge.

This is just sickening.

Does the media bear any responsibility for this?
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.
