Wingnuts Rush To Make The Case That Kansas Shooter Wasn’t Republican
The most important thing to do when three people are dead because of racism and antisemitism is to make sure that the shooter isn’t a member of your political party and is, in fact, a Democrat. That way, all Democrats can be defined as antisemitic racists and Republicans can be free and clear, as Gary Legum notes.
The accused shooter is one Frazier Glenn Miller, who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Cross, and who has a long history of involvement with the white supremacist movement. Miller allegedly shot to death a doctor and his teenage grandson in the parking lot of the Overland Park Jewish Community Center and then an as-yet-unidentified woman at the nearby Village Shalom, a Jewish retirement community (the two dead at the JCC were reportedly Methodists — for a guy who hates Jews, Miller sure sucks at identifying them). And as he was put into a police car, he shouted “Heil Hitler” for the cameras…
Of course the most important thing we can do right now is send our prayers and support to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy….HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, we’re kidding. Obviously the most important thing we can do is identify Glenn Miller’s political party and stick him with that label, over and over!
But, guess what? He’s run for office as both a Democrat and a Republican.
He even unsuccessfully ran in the Democratic primary for North Carolina governor in 1984 and as a Republican for a state Senate seat in 1987, the SPLC said.
So, what is, is confused, and sick. And it’s not about political party. But when one has to rush to make the point that he’s not a Republican, what does it say about Republicans?
