Kansas Jewish Center Gunman didn't just Appear out of Nowhere

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon.

The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views.

The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller.

As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010. His radio ads caused quite a stir in the Kansas City area; you can watch local news coverage of his candidacy and his ads here:

And, if you search YouTube under “Glenn Miller” (and winnow out all the videos dealing with Glenn Miller the big band musician, composer, arranger and orchestra leader of the swing era) you’ll find quite a few videos of Glenn Miller the white supremacist, including numerous interviews; he was even interviewed extensively by Howard Stern!

Frazier Glenn Cross/Glenn Miller ran as a Democrat for Governor of North Carolina in 1984. He also served three years in Federal prison on convictions for weapons charges and white supremacist militia activities.

In addition to his avowed anti-Semitic and white supremacist views, Miller is on record as being vehemently opposed to homosexuality and to immigration from the Third World.

Now, do I really need to point out how this reprehensible individual, and his (alleged) cowardly and murderous acts on Sunday, will be exploited and spun by the Obama regime?

The masters of propaganda in the Obama regime will make Glenn Miller the poster boy for everyone who dares to oppose or criticize it. We’ve already seen anyone who dares to criticize Barack Obama or Eric Holder labeled a “racist”; Glenn Miller will be paraded as “proof” of that.

Further, Glenn Miller will be used to support the government’s already all-but-successful vilification of militias (Surprise! Our Founders intended for Americans to be organized into militias – “…Being necessary to the security of a free State…” – and despite what the propagandists would have you believe, militias are not automatically or presumptively racist).

Miller’s alleged crimes have successfully bumped from the news the story of militias successfully (and peaceably) convincing Federal regulatory agency snipers and SWAT teams to back down from their heavy-handed overreach against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.

Soon, Miller will be presented as the “face” of the Tea Parties, which the regime has, since the Tea Parties’ inception, tried to paint as “racist”. I have no doubt that Miller will also become the “face” of anyone who dares to oppose unrestricted immigration or the homosexual agenda.We’ve already seen such folks branded as “haters”.

For a regime more and more at odds with its own citizens (and one which seems to be actively, and more and more brazenly, seeking to undermine the very notion of “citizenship”), a person like Glenn Miller plays right into its own nefarious designs. As if his cowardly acts weren’t tragic enough, they will now be cynically exploited by those who “never let a crisis go to waste”.
