FARGO, N.D. — Frazier Glenn Miller, AKA Frazier Glenn Cross, didn’t often hide his feelings.
Miller, accused of shootings at a Jewish community center in Kansas City that left three dead, called a talk radio show in Fargo last year to support North Dakota white supremacist Craig Cobb and described himself as a “proud terrorist.”
Cobb made national headlines after his efforts to buy up property in Leith, and lure other white supremacists there was uncovered. After a protracted battle with local officials and residents, Cobb sold his property in Leith and abandoned his plan to take over.
He’s now in prison, awaiting approval of a plea agreement on “terrorizing” charges.
But back in November, Cobb was out of jail and calling into North Dakota talk radio shows, including the Jay Thomas Show on WDAY AM970 in Fargo.
While interviewing Cade Ferris, who organized a group called UnityND to protest Cobb’s efforts in Leith, Thomas took an unsolicited call in from Cobb. But Cobb wasn’t the only white supremacist who would call in that day. Later in the show, Thomas took a call from Miller, who described himself as a Cobb’s “good friend.”
The conversation quickly turned heated, with Miller suggesting that white Americans are “afraid to speak out.” He also described himself as a terrorist.
“If standing up for my race makes me a terrorist, then I’m a proud terrorist,” he told Thomas.
Thomas replayed the audio of the call during his show Monday, saying realized the caller from last year and the man accused of the shootings in Missouri was the same person.
“I couldn’t believe it when I heard it on the news,” Thomas told Watchdog.
The Associated Press reports that Miller and Cobb have stayed in touch, noting that Cobb received a phone call in jail from Miller last week.
Miller, a former Ku Klux Klan member, ran for the US Senate in Missouri in 2010 getting seven votes. During his campaign he called into the Massachusetts-based Dave Parkman Show making remarks about Jewish conspiracies and white supremacy similar to the ones he made on the Jay Thomas Show.
