Frazier Glenn Miller, the man who murdered three people at two different Jewish institutions in April, explained his motive to the Kansas City Star. Miller says he thought he was dying and decided that he needed to “kill some Jews” before he died.
Miller was diagnosed with emphysema after an emergency room visit in March, and he decided to go out in style — by offing him some Jewish people. “I was convinced I was dying then,” said Miller. “… I wanted to make damned sure I killed some Jews or attacked the Jews before I died.”
Miller says he is certain his bloody rampage had an impact.
“Because of what I did, Jews feel less secure,” he said. “Every Jew in the world knows my name now and what I did. As for these … white people who are accomplices of the Jews, who attend their meetings and contribute to their fundraising efforts and who empower the Jews, they are my enemy too. A lot of white people who associate with Jews, go to Jewish events and support them know that they’re not safe either, thanks to me.”
Miller says he has but one regret: “The young white boy,” he said. “I regret that,” referring to 14-year-old Reat Underwood.
Miller is a former KKK Grand Dragon and founder of the failure known as the White Patriot Party. He says he searched out Jewish centers in the Kansas City area, but took his wife’s car because he believed the government was watching him via satellite.
“I even Googled Islamic community centers, Hispanic community centers, Baptist community centers, just to throw them off,” he said. “I didn’t drive my truck because I was convinced it was being monitored by satellite by the cops. That’s the reason I took my wife’s car.”
In preparation for his assault, he says he drove to the scenes of his murders in the week leading up to his attacks. “I reconnoitered the damned place,” he said. He explained that he was encouraged to choose the community center because he read a flier that said ” young Jews from all over will be participating” in an event.
He says that he almost didn’t go through with the attacks — not because of a crisis of conscience, but because he had not seen enough people to “satisfy [his] quota” of “maybe six or eight [Jews].”
“I have never felt such exhilaration,” he said of the attacks. “Finally, I’d done something.”
