Frazier Glenn Miller, the man held in connection with the slaying of three at two Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City Sunday, has a past as a fringe political candidate who battled with broadcasters for airtime.
His political aims — detailed in a bizarre manifesto — were to secure the future of white America.
In 2010 when he mounted a U.S. Senate campaign, FCC regulators ruled that Miller had no legal right to broadcast offensive campaign ads on Missouri radio and TV stations.
The FCC found that Miller was not a “bona fide” candidate entitled to mandatory access to the state’s broadcast airwaves. The FCC requires broadcast stations to give qualified federal candidates access to airtime.
A few stations that did run Miller’s ads — including Clear Channel stations in Springfield — stopped after the ruling. Radio ads urged white people to “unite” and “take our country back.” Advertisements posted on his campaign web site used language derogatory to Jews, racial and ethnic minorities.
In its ruling, the agency determined that Miller failed to make a “substantial showing” that his candidacy consisted of more than a one-man crusade against racial equality, Greg Skall, who represented the Missouri Association of Broadcasters, said at the time.
Miller, who was running a write-in campaign to replace retiring Republican Sen. Kit Bond, told the News-Leader that he was discouraged by the decision. He said the government did not care about his qualifications to run as much as it cared about censoring his ideas.
The 2010 spat over campaign ads was not the first time Miller had clashed with others while trying to run for office.
In 2006, Miller tried to run as Democrat against then-U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt, a Republican. Miller was shunned by the Democratic party, which refused to accept his $100 candidate filing fee.
“The Democratic Party is certainly a big-tent party, but that does not include white supremacists,” Democratic spokesperson Jack Cardetti said then.
In response, Miller filed a federal suit seeking to be added to the Democrats’ primary ballot. In the suit, he targeted then-Secretary of State Robin Carnahan.
“Upon information and belief, the defendant (Carnahan) acted in accordance with the unconstitutional policy, which is an unwritten but authorized policy to prevent White persons who publicly espouse pro-White racial viewpoints as part of their political views, are prevented from fully exercising their constitutional rights to free speech and equal access to and full participation in the electoral process as persons who do not,” Miller wrote. The lawsuit was dismissed.
This morning, Blunt decried Miller’s alleged actions.
“This kind of senseless attack on our community is repugnant any day, but choosing Passover as a time to demonstrate this hateful intolerance shows how disturbed this person must be,” Blunt said. “This suspect clearly has a history of outrageous behavior, and I join all Missourians in condemning this devastating act of violence. I plan to stay in touch with community leaders and am thinking of the victims and their families who have suffered a great loss.”
The clearest summation of Miller’s politics comes in a manifesto posted on his personal website entitled “My Political Goals.” The documents contains a 16-point platform for his past Senate campaign.
Miller first promises to bring American troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan and to instead station 250,000 soldiers on the southern American border to stop what he calls “the invasion from South America.”
He states his support for a hard stance against American employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens. He calls for one-year mandatory imprisonment and a $50,000 fine for each count.
Miller proposes providing $2,500 to families of illegal aliens along with free transportation back to their native countries, “implemented in a slow, peaceful, well-organized manner over (a) period of 3-5 years.”
Miller further states his support for affirmative laws for whites in an effort to increase the white birth rate, the creation of a White History Month. He also says he wants mass media ownership to reflect the racial makeup of the country to combat the influence of Jewish owners.
Further points of his manifesto target Jews and Jewish influence in government. He expresses a willingness to work with other races in order to fight back against the Jews.
