Glenn Miller, the former North Carolina Ku Klux Klan leader, arrested in the Kansas City Jewish Community Center shootings that killed three people on Sunday, has been identified previously as an FBI informant. The FBI is known to have infiltrated the Klan time and time again since the civil rights days, during a period when J. Edgar Hoover had set his sights on flushing out supposed commies and ending the career of Martin Luther King. Miller testified for the government in a major trial where the Feds sought to convict leaders of the Far Right. In his book, A White Man Speaks Out, he claims to have been an FBI informant.

Miller is a former Vietnam vet who was a member of the American Nazi Party before turning to the North Carolina Klan. He was in the Klan caravan involved in the Greensboro massacre in 1979, where the Klan opened fire on civil rights marchers. He then formed the White Patriot Party, claiming by 1985 to have a membership of 2500 and offices in six southern states. He ran for governor of North Carolina in 1984 and got 5,000 votes.

A year later he made a try for North Carolina senator John East’s senate seat. The rally where he announced his senate campaign turned into a small arms training session. Miller was a big fan of camouflage clothing and supposedly recruited Marines at Fort Le Jeune. His group sponsored telephone messages, including one of a faked black man supposedly being lynched. He supported South Africa’s apartheid government, attacked Jerry Falwell as “Judas Goat.” And along with other far right outfits by the late 1980s, the White Patriot Party phone messages was linking the farm depression to the international Jewish bankers. The main platform of his party, Miller said, was southern independence.
