Over the weekend news broke of a shooting at a Jewish center near Kansas City which killed three people. Arrested and accused of the crime is Frazier Glenn Cross, also known as Frazier Glenn Miller.
Miller is a white supremacist and former leader of the Ku Klux Klan who has ties to North Dakota Nazi Craig Cobb who stirred national headlines with his attempted takeover of Leith, ND.
During the controversy over the situation in Leith, which included Cobb and one of his fellow Nazis getting arrested for terrorizing their neighbors, Miller defended Cobb on the radio.
“This Miller called my show a while back when Cobb was on with me and we got into a huge screaming match on the air,” my good friend Jay Thomas, of the Jay Thomas Show on WDAY AM970 in Fargo, told me this morning. “I couldn’t believe it when I heard [about the shooting] on the news this morning.”
Jay tells me they’re working on getting the audio of Miller’s call out of the archives. I’ll post it when it’s available.
More information on Cobb and Miller is available here.
A chilling reminder of just how dangerous these extremists are.
Update: According to the AP, Cobb and Cross/Miller spoke as recently as last week:
Cobb says he last spoke with Frazier Glenn Cross on Thursday and that Cross gave no indication that he might be planning an attack.
Cobb says the allegations against Cross have nothing to do with him and so he isn’t commenting. But he says he hopes Cross didn’t do it.
