“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
We’ve heard President Joe Biden issue an endless stream of warnings about political violence—but when it came, it came from one of his supporters…and he hasn’t said a word to condemn it.
Police say that a liberal ran over and killed a teenager in South Dakota because the teen was a Republican.

A 41-year-old named Shannon Brandt got into a political argument with 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, according to police records.
Brandt didn’t hide the reason he allegedly ended the young man’s life. “He had a political argument with” Ellingson, police documents say.
It’s not clear what the two said to each other, but Brandt — who admitted he’d been drinking — became convinced Ellingson belonged to a “Republican extremist group” that was “coming to get him,” police said.
That’s when the middle-aged Democrat reportedly turned his SUV on Ellingson, chased him, and squashed his bloody remains into the pavement of a dark alley in the tiny North Dakota town of McHenry.
A terrified Ellingson called his mother twice… but there was nothing she could do to save her boy.

The attack came shortly after Joe Biden delivered a dark, conspiratorial speech accusing “MAGA Republicans” of posing a threat to American democracy and polluting the very “soul of America.” He also said that supporters of President Donald Trump were purveying “semi-fascism”—something like the Italians and Germans that the United States waged a world war to defeat.
Republicans say Biden stirred up the violence, unleashed political terrorism, and he desperately needs to own up and apologize for it.
“Words can have violent consequences,” said Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., after the attack. He ought to know: A left-wing neighbor beat him severely and left him with broken ribs.
Other Republican victims spoke up, too. “It’s outrageous and tragic that once again we are seeing another example of leftist violence,” said House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., who was shot and nearly killed along with other Republican lawmakers during a 2017 congressional baseball practice by a Bernie Sanders supporter. The gunman admitted he wanted to kill Republicans.
“I know firsthand the consequences that can result from violent political rhetoric, and my prayers are with Cayler’s family,” Scalise said.
Then he threw down the gauntlet to the president: Condemn this murder or bear the consequences.

“People from all parties should condemn political violence when it happens, and I would encourage President Biden and other Democrat leaders to equally condemn this heinous act,” Scalise concluded.
He’s not the only one to lay the blame at the feet of Biden’s unhinged speech, which all but labeled 75 million Trump voters as goose-stepping brownshirts.
“As far as I’m concerned, this lands in the lap of Joe Biden,” agreed Fox News host and former judge Jeanine Pirro on Thursday. “Those are the words that Joe Biden used, and those are the very words that this murderer…used, the word ‘extremists,’ because the kid was a Republican and he thought that he was a MAGA Republican.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-Ga., who has never been known for holding her tongue, had one of the rawest condemnations of Biden’s actions. “Democrats want Republicans dead, and they’ve already started the killings,” she said. “Democrats’ political war against patriotic Americans must end!”
The murder suspect’s treatment probably raised Greene’s hackles: A judge released Brandt on a $50,000 bond, while many of those accused of participating in the January 6 riot in Washington, D.C., remain in prison more than a year and a half later.
So far, Biden hasn’t said a word about the story, which has hardly gotten any coverage outside of Fox News Channel and conservative websites like The Horn News.
Biden may not know about the homicide—or he may think he bares no blame—but the American people side with the GOP.
After Biden’s address in Philadelphia in front of Independence Hall, 57 percent of Americans said his speech was a “dangerous escalation” of the two parties tearing the country—and each other—apart.
That follows another dangerous poll: In July more than half of all Americans said they expect the United States to explode into a civil war “in the next few years.”
The president must condemn this extremist violence.
