Holocaust Museum Shooting

Ken AshfordBreaking News, Crime, War on Terrorism/Torture1 Comment

It's all unfolding now.

Two people (perhaps 3) shot by a gunman in the Holocaust Musuem in D.C..  The gunman was also apparently shot and is in custody.

Too early, of course, to determine the motive, but since it was at the Holocaust Museum, one can surmise that the shooter was anti-Jew.  From there, it's not a far leap to suppose that the shooter was an islamic terrorist of some sort.

Then again, news reports say that the shooter was a white male "born in 1920" which doesn't exactly fit the "islamic terrorist" profile.  Could be just a demented old guy.

UPDATE:  Some sketchy reports that the shooter may not survive.

UPDATE:   MSNBC saying the shooter "had possible connections to hate groups or anti-government groups".  If this turns out to be true, and at this point — who knows, this is another of those right wing extremist (like the Dr. Tiller murderer) that the DHS warned us about.

Ironically, this is what the Holocaust Museum looks like — can you read the red banner?


UPDATE:  I got this from Twitter (really, the best place to get breaking news).  The gunman's name is James Von Brunn (confirmed by MSNBC just seconds ago)

My Google searches find this comment by James Von Brunn at a site called "The Black Jesus":

Jesus Christs tells us to love our enemies, forgive them, turn the other cheek, give them our cloak and coat; give away our personal belongings and follow Him. Have you done this?

Do you know any alleged Christians that have ?

Nietzsche said, “The last Christian died on the cross.”

One cannot love your neighbors and segregate them. Therefore. Multi-cukturalism is a prerequisite to being Christian. It is for that reason the POPE advocates open borders with Mexico. The word CATHOLIC means “UNIVERSAL” The Churdh ALWAYS has sought a united World under CHRIST. The ILLUMINATI too seeks One World Government – which may be why Henry Kissinger, ZIONIST, visits the Vatican so frequently.

He's apparently an artist.  But he's mostly known as a white supremicist: see here and here.  Here's his hate website: http://www.holywesternempire.org/

His site's bio:

James W. von Brunn holds a BachSci Journalism degree from a mid-Western university where he was president of SAE and played varsity football. During WWII he served as PT-Boat captain, Lt. USNR, receiving a Commendation and four battle stars. For twenty years he was an advertising executive and film-producer in New York City. He is a member of Mensa, the high-IQ society. In 1981 Von Brunn attempted to place the treasonous Federal Reserve Board of Governors under legal, non-violent, citizens arrest. He was tried in a Washington, D.C. Superior Court; convicted by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison for eleven years by a Jew judge. A Jew/Negro/White Court of Appeals denied his appeal. He served 6.5 years in federal prison. (Read about von Brunn's "Federal Reserve Caper" HERE.) He is now an artist and author and lives on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Here's his wikipedia profile, as written by him(?)….

In a recent blog post, Von Brunn wrote that Hitler's "worst mistake" was that "he didn't gas the Jews."

I think we've got a good understanding of this guy….

UPDATE:  Brian Williams of NBC reports that he lives in New Hampshire…

UPDATE:  Also appears to be a sucker for the "Fox News" propaganda (Obama isn't really an American, etc….)

John Cole reacts:

How many acts of right-wing terrorism have to occur before DHS is allowed to start keeping track of it?

I really don’t get the conservative reaction to the original DHS pronouncement. No one is trying to lump angry Red State commenters in with honest-to-God terrorists…except, weirdly enough, the Red State commenters themselves.

There are crazy people out there shooting up abortion clinics and Holocaust museums. These people identify with causes normally described as right-wing. Deal with it. Tea bag away to your heart’s content. It’s not til you start plotting to kill people that DHS should take an interest. If anyone starts spying on you prior to that, then I, the ACLU, and dirty hippies everywhere will support your grievances.

Well said.
