Frazier Glenn Miller, former Grand Dragon of the KKK and founder of an 80s hate group has been arrested in connection with the shootings in Overland Park, Kansas at two separate Jewish community centers.
Frazier Glenn Miller, 73, of Aurora, Mo., was arrested today for the murder of three people at two separate Jewish Community Centers in Overland Park, Kan. Miller, who was arrested using the aliasFrazier Glenn Cross, has been in the movement nearly his entire life. Miller is the former “grand dragon” of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which he founded and ran in the 1980s before being sued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for operating an illegal paramilitary organization and using intimidation tactics against African Americans.
After subsequently forming another Klan group, the White Patriot Party, he was found in criminal contempt and sentenced to six months in prison for violating the court settlement. He went underground while his conviction was under appeal but was caught by the FBI with a weapons cache in Missouri. He served three years in federal prison after being indicted on weapons charges and for plotting robberies and the assassination of SPLC founder Morris Dees. As part of a plea bargain, Miller testified against other Klan leaders in a 1988 sedition trial.
Miller is a raging anti-Semite who has posted more than 12,000 times on Vanguard News Network (VNN), whose slogan is “No Jews, Just Right.” VNN founder Alex Linder has openly advocated “exterminating” Jews since December 2009. Miller, a close partner to Linder, has called Jews “swarthy, hairy, bow-legged, beady-eyed, parasitic midgets.” Miller is also one of VNN’s largest donors and he printed and distributed thousands of copies of VNN’s newsletter, The Aryan Alternative.
Miller's website includes a page describing his role in the Greensboro Massacre of 1979, where he writes "My fear quickly turned to burning hatred, and I stuck my head out the window and screamed back at them, 'Niggers, Jew-Kikes, Communist bastards... you ugly Jew Yankee bastards... Death to the Communists.'"
Miller's alleged acts of violence follow a weekend of heightened rhetoric from far-right conservatives over the BLM's aborted attempt to round up Cliven Bundy's cattle for non-payment of grazing fees on federal land. While there's no direct connection between the two events, when rhetoric heats up and the patriots hear the battle cry, there's no telling who will do what, or where they'll do it.
