Man who admitted to killing 18-year-old over teen’s conservative views RELEASED on $50k bond – where’s media?

In yet another disturbing example of the two-tiered system of justice that has replaced equal enforcement of the law in America, a North Dakota man who killed a teenager whom he characterized as a “Republican extremist” was released on a bond as the victim’s family was left grieving after his young life was snuffed out in another act of political violence.

Over the weekend, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt took an argument with 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson to extremes following an argument at a street dance, chasing him down on the streets of the city of McHenry and using his SUV as a murder weapon in what is being described as a politically motivated killing.

While details of what led to the murderous act by Brandt – who was allegedly drunk – haven’t been fully fleshed out by authorities, the terrified victim did call his mother on his cellphone, pleading with her to come and rescue him in the minutes before he was chased into an alley at approximately 2:30 am on Sunday morning, Ellingson would not get out of the alley alive.

According to court papers, Brandt called 911 dispatchers that he had hit Ellingson because the teenager was part of a “Republican extremist group,” a label put on tens of millions of Americans by President Joe Biden during his “soul of a nation” speech, one in which he effectively declared voters of the opposition party as enemies of the state in an eerie setting with blood red lighting that some have likened to an address by a classic fascist dictator.

Brandt seemed to not comprehend the serious nature of the charges against him, vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident after a judge ordered him held on $50,000 cash which the alleged murderer objected to, saying that he was not a flight risk.

“I have a job, a life and a house and things I don’t exactly want to see, you know, go by the wayside—family that are very important to me,” he said, expressing no remorse for his victim’s family, but hey, according to Biden, “MAGA Republicans” are almost subhuman.

While there has been the sound of crickets from the mainstream media that hysterically wails against the threat of political violence, reporter Mia Cathell is on the beat of what would be defined as a hate crime if not for today’s double standards.

Many on Twitter opined on the media’s disinterest in the politically motivated hate crime.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Sheri Ellingson, the mother of the victim to assist in covering the funeral expenses for her son.

Political violence, once condemned by both political parties has become commonplace since the 2016 election with some notable examples being the crazed Bernie Sanders supporter who tried to slaughter the Republican congressional baseball team on a practice field in June 2017, the destructive national rampage by Black Lives Matter and Antifa hooligans in the summer of 2020, the racist black militant who drove his vehicle through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin last year, and angry mobs swarming the neighborhoods of conservative Supreme Court justices after Roe v. Wade was overturned with one man traveling from California to murder Justice Brett Kavanaugh until he got cold feet at the last minute.

But that was before Biden’s speech that put targets on the backs of half of the electorate with the official sanctioning of the United States government, a dog whistle for angry leftists.
