Kansas Mayor Agrees With KKK Killer

I don’t know what the hell is going on in Marionville, Missouri, but the mayor there says the former KKK leader who shot three people at a pair of Jewish centers last weekend was a friend of his and that he agrees with his anti-Semitic views, if not his tactics.

Marionville’s new mayor, elected Tuesday, calls Miller a friend.

“He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people. He respected his elders greatly, a long as they were the same color as him,” said Mayor Daniel Clevenger. “Very fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him.”

In addition to being mayor, Clevenger, also owns a repair shop. He knew Miller by many names.

“When I first met him, he called himself Frazier Mais. I think that was spelled Mais, if I remember right,” he said. “Then all of a sudden he started calling himself Frazier Miller.”

Despite the name change, Clevenger said Miller’s biased beliefs stayed strong.

“Kind of agreed with him on some things, but I don’t like to express that too much,” said Clevenger.

That hasn’t always been the case. Nearly a decade ago, Clevenger wrote a letter to the editor of the Aurora Advertiser.

“I am a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings,” wrote Clevenger. “The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State’s workforce.”

The letter continued.

“Made a few Jews rich by killin’ us off.”

He also spoke of the “Jew-run government backed banking industry turned the U.S into the world’s largest debtor nation.”

Years later, Clevenger’s views haven’t seemed to change.

“There some things that are going on in this country that are destroying us. We’ve got a false economy and it’s, some of those corporations are run by Jews because the names are there,” he said. “The fact that the Federal Reserve prints up phony money and freely hands it out, I think that’s completely wrong. The people that run the Federal Reserve, they’re Jewish.”

That man won a freaking election.

    “I don’t know what the hell is going on in Marionville, Missouri”

    Well the short, glib answer is: it’s Missouri. I live right on the border and even people here in Iowa have a stereotype of Missourians being ignorant/backward hicks. Honestly I doubt they’re significantly more so than the average in the area, but considering how many times I’ve heard minorities referred to as “it” instead of s/he (not to mention all the Confederate flags up here in the north) that’s not really a point to be proud of.

    Not that Kansas doesn’t have its fair share of problems, but shouldn’t the headline read “Missouri Mayor …”?

  • D Carter

    Hey–Kansas is the victim here, not the shooter’s state or this mayor’s state. Those of us trying to do some decent work here in Kansas get enough unfriendliness–the last thing we need is friendly fire.

  • Hey, being a resident of Missouri I’d be happy to make this guy Kansas’ problem!

    A coworker who recently left Marionville was flabbergasted at this guy. Doubts he’s got much of a chance of reelection at this point.

  • “The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State’s workforce.”

    Ah hah! The truth finally comes out! And it’s insane!

  • From this article, apparently, an Alderwoman has resigned and there’s an impeachment movement. I’ve heard he’s never been particularly popular, though that could just be my coworker only hanging around people that hate him rather than wide unpopularity.


  • @6:

    Widely unpopular, but apparently not unpopular enough. The mayor and the other person who was interviewed used similar language about the killer being respectful and friendly. My guess? They’re in the same front pew at church, right now, celebratin’ the rebirth of JESUS!

  • I’m still trying to wrap my head around the llama analogy.

    At least the drug lord analogy compared Jews to other humans.

    Turmoil in Marionville precedes this controversy. Dan Clevenger (aka as “Danny”) was an alderman who resigned with three others a couple of years ago when Bob Duda, Jr. was mayor. Link: http://goo.gl/Peofda

    Duda was Clavenger’s opponent in this past mayoral election. I couldn’t find the political affiliations of either man. I got interested in knowing because a commenter at the Moonie Times claimed Clevenger is a Democrat which proves that it’s Democrats that are fascists and bigots rather than Republicans (while avoiding that it’s predominately conservatives irrespective of party affiliation). Clevenger’s being a Democrat is entirely possible given that the Democratic party was once the home for southern conservative populist bigots.

  • D. C. Sessions

    That man won a freaking election.

    Well, it being a Republican stronghold, more like a “freak election.” Still, that’s how the system is supposed to work — it’s not called “representative democracy” for nothing.

    Made a few Jews rich by killin’ us off

    I feel really bad that my first thought was … “not enough!”

  • D Carter

    PLEASE CORRECT THE TITLE. The mayor in question had nothing to do with Kansas, but you continue to keep it the first word in your title. If you have some need to be wrong, you could change it to “Michigan Mayor Agrees With KKK Killer” or something.

  • @12:

    D Carter, not to trivialize your concern but I doubt that Ed Brayton is “on the case” at the moment. He puts up as many as a dozen posts some days and does it pretty much every day. I suspect that he’s out spending time with friends or enjoying a respite. Rest assured that he is not doing it to antagonize you or anyone else.

  • democommie “I suspect that he’s out spending time with friends or enjoying a respite.”

    Actually, he solves crimes in his spare time.

  • D Carter


    Appreciate the feedback, but Ed continued to post right here 2 possibly 3 times after this was called to his attention twice. I’ve been reading him for years, and if he’s become too busy, perhaps he might consider just one *correct* post a day rather than a dozen like this.

  • D Carter, this is the Internet. Do you want it right, or do you want it fast?

  • Wes

    You can’t call it a Kansas mayor in the title but a Missouri mayor in the body of the article. That’s just shitty, lazy journalism, and there’s no excuse for it. Lots of journalists are busy–that doesn’t make factual errors and contradictions okay. Ed needs to make a correction. Is it a Kansas mayor or not?

  • @15:

    Ed continued to post, here? I think you mean that he had other posts after this one. Ed composes his posts at some time prior to the time that they are released. There is also a webmaster at the bloggomeration that might be better able to either make a correction or contact Ed so that he can make one. Another commenter may be able to locate the “tech issues” button for you, I’m not seeing it.


    ALL CAPS, WES! AND LOTS OF GODDAMNED MOTHERFUCKING COCKSUCKING SWEARWORDS!! AND ZILLIONZ OF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At least that’s what I do when there’s something driving me nuts, here (it’s always some technical issue). Not that Ed usually responds to my rants but I always feel better anyway.

    Being from Nebraska I am used to people thinking that Omaha is Oklahoma and that Nebraska is bordered by California, Texas and Chicago.

    Otoh, Ed is a fan of both MI and MI State, so it would be understandable that he’d be hatin’ on Kansas for both the Jayhawks and the Wildcats–though I doubt that’s the case.

    Re democommie @ #18

    Brayton is also a big Duke fan.

  • @19:

    Yes, I know but I’m a “Skers*” fan, since birth, we were baptized with center pivot irrigators back then and I think they still use Mazzola for the oil of anointment during Last Rites of the RCC (the priests seem to have a HUGE supply of the stuff). Tweaking Missourites, Kanans, Coloradans, Iowans and Oklahomoists was pretty much like “the dozens” back then. Now we all just hate Texas.
