A Day at the Museum
James Von Brunn, a white supremacist bigot, walked into the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC and opened fire today. I guess that will show those people learning about the Holocaust!
“An elderly gunman opened fire with a rifle inside the crowded U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on Wednesday, gravely wounding a security guard before being shot. Authorities said they were investigating a white supremacist as the possible shooter.”
The guard later died of his injuries.
“Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as James Wenneker von Brunn, 88, from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, NBC News reported. NBC said he may have had connections to hate groups or anti-government groups.”
Hate groups is right. von Brunn is a full fledged neo-Nazi. He runs a web site called Holy Western Empire and is obsessed with continuation of the “Aryan gene-pool”.
It looks like this man was definitely mentally unstable to begin with, and old age hasn’t mellowing him out any. His past record includes an attempt to kidnap Federal Reserve board members:
“Von Brunn is believed to have had contact with law enforcement in the past, according to NBC. A D.C. Superior Court jury convicted a man by the same name in 1983 of attempting to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve Board.”
On his web page, von Brunn referred to the incident as a “legal, nonviolent citizens arrest”. He was sentenced to serve 6 years for that little stunt, but it doesn’t look like there were an attempts to evaluate his mental health. Jail time means nothing to an insane person and this guy is bat shit crazy.
Amongst his other racist tirades, he appears to be responsible for the internet meme that Obama’s birth certificate needed to be made public. So, I hope all the nut jobs that fell into that crap feel good that their source was a crazy Nazi douche bag.
