An Associated Press report on the killing of a North Dakota teen by a drunk 41-year-old man over a “political argument” declined to note the alleged assailant reportedly thought the victim was part of a “Republican extremist group.”

The Wednesday report from The Associated Press stated, “A driver charged with fatally striking a teenager in North Dakota allegedly told investigators he purposely hit the teen with his SUV after they had a political argument, according to court documents.”.

Fox News Digital reported, “Court documents said he told a 911 dispatcher the teen was part of a Republican ‘extremist group’ and was calling people to go after him following an unspecified political argument.”


The CBS/AP report begins with the following statement:

“Cayler Ellingson, 18, was struck and killed following a street dance in McHenry early Sunday. The driver accused of striking Ellingson in an alley, Shannon Brandt, 41, is charged in Foster County with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death.”

According to an official court document on the attack, “Brandt admitted to State Radio that he hit the pedestrian and that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group.”

However, the CBS/AP report didn’t include that key detail.

  1. That’s the same language Biden used against MAGA Republicans. Any wonder he thought the guy was a threat? This is on Biden but he’ll never get called on it by the media.

  2. This young man’s blood is on Biden’s hands!! He and his political puppets, including the media, spew nothing but HATE towards Republicans!!!
    These people are the very thing they accuse us of!

  3. Why isn’t the perp already hanging by a noose. He had a rap sheet for other crimes. Ohh, I forgot he was a democrat. My sympathy and prayers for the family of the young man who was murdered by this piece of trash.

  4. As WATTERS said. “You need to get in their face and punch back.” Well POS did just that literally. Biden speech about MAGA extreme is another one and a lot more. They all should be held accountable! Hope the family goes after the politicians now!!

  5. We cannot let this story get covered up or disappear. Liberal news will sweep this under the rug cause it could connect back to Biden, which it plainly does.
    Justice for Cayler!!!

  6. So he kills a kid because he is supposedly an extremist. The kid is hunted down and killed. Doesn’t that make the killer an extremist too?
    Does that title alone justify murder?
    Extremist vs Extremist, the lines have been drawn, civil war is just around the bend. Be carful what you wish for. Your going to love the monster you created.

  7. Need to ban his SUV and every SUV!
    This wacko, and I do mean mental case from way back, tried to get away with blaming the victim and has been caught doing so, the only thing left to do is ban his SUV and every SUV…the (mis)logic of gun control….wackos need to be put in institutions…bring back metal hospitals and stop paying psychologist and sociologist for trying to fix these wackos!
