Frazier Glenn Miller

Frazier Glenn Miller, the former Ku Klux Klan “grand dragon” and proud anti-Semite accused of killing three people outside Kansas Jewish centers in March, was not always so strict about his discrimination, at least in private. New York Magazine reported that before becoming an FBI informant, Miller, who had founded North Carolina’s White Patriot Party, was caught in a compromising position — in the backseat of a car — with a black man, doing things a federal prosecutor is not comfortable saying out loud.

ABC News reports, via Gawker:

In the course of their investigation, authorities also learned the stunning details of Miller’s arrest a year earlier. Raleigh police officers had caught Miller in  the back seat of a vehicle, in mid-act with a black male prostitute masquerading as a woman.

“It was pretty shocking,” says [then-federal prosecutor J. Douglas McCullough], “because of his personal stances that he had taken and what he was now accused on engaging in.”

McCullough says he has read the police report of the incident but declined to comment on the specifics. “I would rather not go into the details,” he said. “They’re rather salacious. I think the facts speak for themselves and people can draw their own conclusions about how incongruous that is.”

Miller once wrote, “White men, not to be outdone by their women, bed down with colored women, accelerating even more rapidly their own racial demise. The reason one doesn’t see more White men and Black women together in public is because Whitey fears the Black man,” and much more like it.

But in case you thought this guy couldn’t get any worse, the 73-year-old claimed last year, in a phone call with the Southern Poverty Law Center, “that he had lured the prostitute to the meeting with the intention of beating him.”

Then one thing led to another.

UPDATE: 1 of 3 men convicted in hate crime murder of James Byrd Jr. has been executed

UPDATE: The Beaumont Enterprise reports that the execution of white supremacist and convicted hate crime murderer Lawrence Russell Brewer has been carried out. The execution was scheduled for 6 p.m., and Brewer was pronounced dead at 6:21 p.m.

Lawrence Russell Brewer will die tonight in the execution chamber on death row in Huntsville, and I just can’t bring myself to feel sorry for him. Not even a little.

Lawrence Russell Brewer

Brewer is one of two men sentenced to die after being convicted of the June 7, 1998 dragging death of James Byrd Jr. in my hometown of Jasper, Texas. John William King also faces the death penalty, but he continues to appeal his sentence. A third man, Shawn Berry, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Most of you, I am sure, have heard of James Byrd Jr., and how King, Brewer and Berry offered him a ride one night, then beat him up, chained him by his ankles to the bumper of a pickup truck and dragged him down a back road until his body hit a culvert and was torn apart. A pathologist testified that Byrd was alive when he hit the culvert.

King, Brewer and Berry were arrested within a couple of days. The story that came out in the weeks and months afterward was that Brewer and King met in prison where they both joined a white supremacist group, a splinter of the KKK called the Confederate Knights of America. King had lived in Jasper, and when the two men got out of prison, they went back to Jasper, where King and Berry became friends.

Evidence also indicated that the men — at least, King and Brewer — were intent on starting a race war. So they set out to commit as horrific a crime as possible, expecting that to be the spark that set off a blaze of racial hatred. Luckily, that didn’t happen, although not for lack of trying by outsiders on both sides — the KKK and the Black Panthers — who flocked to Jasper during King’s trial there. Brewer’s trial was moved to Bryan.

Phelps clan to leave graffiti on Westboro Baptist Church to show 'face of Topeka'

PhelpsSpray painted on the church were a swastika and the message, “God hates plants,” according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.

One of the church’s leaders called the graffiti “graphic” and “filthy.”

But the church is Westboro Baptist Church and the leader who finds the messages offensive is Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of Fred Phelps.

The city of Topeka said it would send a crew to remove the graffiti as it does for other locations. Phelps said she would leave it to show the “face of Topeka.” Graffiti has been removed from the church twice since a court ruling in a case about picketing military funerals was handed down in the Phelpses’ favor.

While “God Hates Plants” scrawled across their church is offensive to the Phelpses, “God Hates Fags” and their latest campaign, “God Hates Jews,” is not.

Also painted on church property was “KKK.” However, even the Klan has repudiated WBC on its website.

Another complaint of Phelps-Roper’s are references to God. References by her group, of course, are not offensive.
