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.
