White Supremacist [UPDATED: And Anti-Christian And Antisemitic] Shoots Holocaust Memorial Guards–UPDATED

June 10, 2009 / 1:37 pm • By Dr. Melissa Clouthier

Here’s the information about the shooter, James Von Brunn:

James is a Gentleman I have great admiration for. From his biography:

“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. He is now an artist and author and lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.”

When I first read his biography, I realized James Von Brunn had taken direct action to deal with the banking cartel that controls and destroys so much of our lives and somehow I had never heard of his heroic deed. How could that be? How could such an amazing deed go unremarked by the journals and books that deal with monetary systems and how we are controlled by them?

James Von Brunn’s website here.

So this guy is nuts. He’s antisemitic.

A friend asked, “Has the whole world gone mad?”

Short answer: Yes.


One security guard is in “grave condition”. That means he’ll likely die.

Lone gunman. No prior warning. Used a rifle.


Extremist shooter was insane. Here’s what he thought:

And, big surprise, the Left, lead by Markos Moulitas’ charge is “tagging” conservatives already.

Remember, Markos, it’s our President who is wanting to meet with another Holocaust denier, President Ahmadinejad.


Via What’s Wrong With The World, and Brian from Redstate, the shooter also hated Christians. Here’s the words of Von Brunn:

The Gospels profess that only Christians may enter Yahweh’s Kingdom of Heaven. To qualify, among other demands, Christians must LOVE THEIR ENEMIES (Jews); give away their personal belongings; eschew knowledge; judge not, despise nature, abandon earthly pleasures, acknowledge that all YHWH’s children are equal; and above all else worship YHWH, the jealous, wrathful, vengeful, unforgiving, genocidal, anthropomorphic tribal god (Jesus’ father) created by Hebrews in their image and likeness. Omnipotent, omniscient YHWH promises Hebrews that they alone shall inherit the earth, that it is commendable to steal from Gentiles, better yet — kill them. Whereas Gentiles, if they fail to worship YHWH, are transported straight to Hell. And it is written, “A little child shall lead them.”

These dangerous, imbecilic, concepts, tenets, and teachings, often treasonous, DESTROYED the Roman Empire and drenched the soil of Europe with Aryan blood for almost 2000 years!

The Big Lie technique, employed by Paul to create the CHRISTIAN RELIGION, also was used to create the HOLOCAUST RELIGION … CHRISTIANITY AND THE HOLOCAUST are HOAXES.

It kinda goes together…hating Jews and Christians.


One security guard dead. So this is murder.


Kathy Shaidle:

The man accused of opening fire at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC on June 10, James W. von Brunn, left a trail of unhinged writings around the internet.

The anti-semitism of von Brunn is the first thing one notices when visiting these bizarre websites. However, like those of most “white supremacists”, many of von Brunn’s political views track “Left” rather than “Right.” Clearly, a re-evaluation of these obsolete definitions is long overdue.

For example, he unleashed his hatred of both Presidents Bush and other “neo-conservatives” in online essays. As even some “progressives” such as the influential Adbusters magazine publicly admit, “neoconservative” is often used as a derogatory code word for “Jews”. As well, even a cursory glance at “white supremacist” writings reveals a hatred of, say, big corporations that is virtually indistinguishable from that of anti-globalization activists.

James von Brunn’s advocacy of 9/11 conspiracy theories also gives him an additional commonality with individuals on the far-left.


And now, Huffington Post praises the “strangely prescient” DHS report. Uh. Yeah.

I have a prediction: Bad things will happen done by bad people in the future. Some of those bad people will be Americans.

  • Deborah Verdi

    I can not abide Mr. Von Brunn or any one like him.
    Nor can I abide people who try to put down or harm our President either by deed or by word. That too is Un-American.
    God Bless the security guard who today saved many and God Bless the President of the United States as well.

    I’m not so sure he acted alone.

    Was Reverend Wright in town?

  • Mat


    So you’re saying that we have no right to criticize the President? Sorry, but “put down” is a pretty broad statement. Personally, as Rush stated many times, I hope he fails because the consequences of him and the Democrats being in office for more than 2-4 years are too great to ignore. However, by all means keep goose-stepping with the best.

  • Sorry Doctor,

    This guy is one of your own. A “Birther” who was angered into fury by the GOP claim that Obama was not born into this country.

    He professed all manner of loony, Right-wing, crazy, views common to your side of the aisle.

    Please, please, please CALM YOUR PEOPLE down before more folk get hurt.

    The DHS report was spot-on. Right-wing extremists killed Dr. Tiller and today shot 2 at the National Holocaust Museum.

  • Nordstrom

    “Remember, Markos, it’s our President who is wanting to meet with another Holocaust denier, President Ahmadinejad.”

    Obama has never mentioned Ahmadinejad by name as the leader he would meet. Ahmadinejad is not even the Supreme Leader of Iran. So right there, we have an oft-repeated conservative lie.

  • Braddock

    Mat and democratsarefascists,

    If your hope is that president Obama fail, at what end do you support his failure? Is your hope limited to failures in the legislature or in the courts, or would you hope for some sort of extreme external event that would disrupt his presidency?

    Your snarky comment about Reverend Wright isn’t even based in reality democratsarefascists, this guy vehemently hated anyone who wasn’t white.

  • Rob

    Gee, democratsarefascists, I wish right-wingers would make up their minds: are Democrats/liberals/Obama fascists, socialists or communists?

    They can’t be all three.

    And your tired Rev. Wright crack was completely nonsensical, especially when one considers that the shooter was an anti-Semitic right-wing extremist who hated blacks.

    Is that all that the DHS report concluded? Then why the hell did you wingnuts get so bent out of shape about?

  • The – James Von Brunn’s website here – link is no longer working. Someone trying to hide something or did they have to “PULL” it for evidence?

    Inquiring minds want to know…

    Wondering if anyone ‘saved’ the page before it was pulled??

  • Mat


    Since you’ve put out (once again) one of your patently stupid comments, I’ll counter reply (this is purely satire, BTW): We’ll “control” (if that’s even possible) our own if and when you decide to “control” your firebombing anarchist numbnuts, ok? I’m sure the irony will be lost on you.

  • Mat


    “If your hope is that president Obama fail, at what end do you support his failure?”

    With the spending that has occurred in the last four months (and really the last decade), this country is literally bankrupt. Now we can admit this and curtail spending heavily, in which case we’re have some short term pain, or we can keep spending tons of money and experience long, long term pain. We’re going to have pain no matter what we do at this point. We can have 2-4 years of $trillion spending or we can have 6-8 years of the same. Take your pick. But understand that we, as a country, will eventually have to pay the proverbial piper. There is no such thing as a free ride (although many Americans at this point seem to think so).

    “Is your hope limited to failures in the legislature or in the courts, or would you hope for some sort of extreme external event that would disrupt his presidency?”

    There will be no failures in the legislature for the time being because the Democrats control both houses and the presidency. I assume by failure, you mean that legislation won’t go through. Obviously, the stuff has already been and will continue to be shoved through Congress through 2010. Will people wake up to vote otherwise? I honestly doubt it. Certainly not be 2010, and perhaps even 2012.

    As far as the courts are concerned, the Supreme Court will probably stay roughly the same for the next few years, even with Sotomayor on the bench. The next two that will leave will most likely be Stevens and Bader-Ginsburg because of age. Since they’re both super liberal, putting more liberals on won’t change the short term Court, although it means that the super liberals will be there for many years to come.

    Finally, while I certainly don’t hope for an extreme external event, I do think that it will happen. Simply wishing otherwise does not change that basic reality. Someone will become emboldened to challenge this president’s will. It happened with Clinton (USS Cole, Kenya Bombings, WTC I) and Bush (9/11) so I don’t think it unreasonable that something will occur on Obama’s watch.

    Given this guy’s weak track record on foreign policy so far, I think the chances increase for something dire to happen in this country. Whether you like it or not, nasty people respect strength. When they perceive someone to be weak, they will test that person.

    I hope this answers your question.

  • Rob

    “Weak track record on foreign policy?”
    Obama is attempting to engage the Muslim world, which is our biggest challenge on the world stage.
    You are merely parroting what you hear on talk radio and FOX News.
    Tomorrow’s Muslim terrorist is today’s Muslim kid. A change in rhetoric from the US is needed, and we need to seek common ground, not continue to speak in divisive terminology.
    This ain’t the Wild West.
    Time for conservatives to grow up and remember that the world isn’t a western, and we’re not John Wayne.

  • Mat

    “…I wish right-wingers would make up their minds: are Democrats/liberals/Obama fascists, socialists or communists?”

    I prefer communist, since fascism refers to conservatism. The Nazis simply took the original Italian concepts of fascism and expanded them to create the horrors of National Socialism. The term “fascism” derives from the Roman fasces, which was that bundle of sticks wrapped around an axe. This symbolized the Roman Senate and People of Rome’s (SPQR) idea of strength (axe) and unity (bundle of sticks).

    Since we all know what the Nazis did, the horrors of National Socialism were transplanted onto fascism as a whole. This is kinda silly, since Spain was “fascist until Franco’s death in the late 1970’s.

    So, obviously, leftists cannot be fascists. However, as I said, they can be communists, who can be “wonderfully” tyrannical (think of Stalin and Pol Pot) when they want to be. I can point out to the “sparkling utopias” of the USSR, Eastern Bloc states, Southeast Asia, PRC, North Korea, etc.

    It’s all a matter of perspective.

  • Mat

    “Weak track record on foreign policy?”
    Obama is attempting to engage the Muslim world, which is our biggest challenge on the world stage.”

    One can be diplomatic to the muslim world, but understand that Islamic viewpoints towards the West differ radically from how the West perceives them. Obama will not change that basic fact, no matter how much “hoping” you want.

    “You are merely parroting what you hear on talk radio and FOX News.”

    Not at all. I don’t think one needs to either listen or watch those to come to certain conclusions.

    “Tomorrow’s Muslim terrorist is today’s Muslim kid. A change in rhetoric from the US is needed, and we need to seek common ground, not continue to speak in divisive terminology.”

    I don’t think going over to Cairo for a few days is going to change the minds of millions of Muslim kids who are being brainwashed in the madrassas year round. If you wish to think otherwise, well all I can say is that I hope I’m not in the middle when the proverbial shit hits the fan. Obviously, you’re not paying attention to what’s happening in Europe. The muslims there are becoming very vocal and aggressive, meaning anti-Western.

    There is little common ground between the Muslim world and the West. The cultural differences are way too great. But keep living in playtime land if you want. I find it ironic that we try to pull our punches but much of the Islamic media is virulently anti-West.

    “This ain’t the Wild West.
    Time for conservatives to grow up and remember that the world isn’t a western, and we’re not John Wayne.”

    Well, in a sense, the world is very much Western. Most of the technology of every country in the world is based on the West. That’s the result of the European expansion starting in the 1500’s, for better or for worse.

    We may not be John Wayne anymore, but consider this. Someone has to be in charge. If you look at history, some empire or another was the top dog. Now you may think that this country sucks, but would you really rather have the Chinese or even the Muslims calling the shots? Because what we’re doing right now is eroding our influence. Now consider the implications of the said above in charge. That means they do what they want and we’re relegated to what Europe is to us now. You really want to be that toothless? Always remember that there are consequences to every decision.

    Power is derived from one real source: economics. If our economy tanks, then we won’t have the money to maintain a credible military, but more importantly we won’t have economic influence. Culture is tied to economics. You really think people pay attention to us because we’re so wonderful? Horseshit! Look at this country’s beginnings and the international attitudes towards us at that time for some indication. They pay attention to our military power and our economic strength, which enhances our culture, and it’s worked. We lose that and I guarantee you that other countries will simply look at us with disdain.

  • Anti-Semitism is but one thread that ties leftist thinkers like Marx, Proudhon, Bakunin, and Hitler together.

    beamish, you are out of your mind, L’il Limbot:

    From the Council on Foreign Relations (a decidedly better source than Rush Limbaugh):

    What types of domestic terrorism are there?

    The FBI classifies domestic terrorist threats mostly by political motive, dividing them into three main categories: left-wing, right-wing, and special-interest. Religious sects have also been connected with terrorist incidents.

    What is left-wing domestic terrorism? Terrorist activity by anticapitalist revolutionary groups. In the late nineteenth century, immigrants from Eastern Europe sympathetic to the international anarchist movement launched what historians consider the first wave of domestic terrorism in the United States. Anarchists tried to kill the steel tycoon Henry Clay Frick in 1892 and bombed Chicago’s Haymarket in 1898. In 1901, an anarchist sympathizer named Leon Czolgosz assassinated President William McKinley in Buffalo, New York.

    Another wave of left-wing terrorist activity began in the 1960s. Far-left groups such as the Weather Underground, the Symbionese Liberation Army, and the Armed Forces for Puerto Rican National Liberation (FALN) used bombings and kidnappings to draw attention to their radical causes. By the mid-1980s, however, left-wing terrorism had begun to wane.

    Are left-wing domestic terrorists still active?

    The only such groups still active, experts say, are Puerto Rican separatists, but even their activists have been scaled back. In its heyday, the FALN tried to kill President Truman, stormed the House of Representatives, and set off bombs in New York City, but Puerto Rican extremists today tend to confine their activities to Puerto Rico. On another front, the FBI warns that anarchist and socialist groups, which have seen a revival since the 1999 World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle, represent “a latent but potential terrorist threat.”

    What is right-wing domestic terrorism?

    Terrorism motivated by opposition to federal taxation and regulation, the United Nations, other international organizations, and the U.S. government itself, as well as by a hatred of racial and religious minorities. This type of terrorism, which has roots in the activities of white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and antigovernment groups, flourished in the 1980s. FBI officials say right-wing militants—including skinheads, neo-Nazis, militia members, and the so-called Christian Patriot movement—now pose America’s most serious domestic terrorist threat.

    What attacks have been conducted by right-wing terrorists?

    Examples of right-wing domestic terrorism include:

    * the April 1995 Oklahoma City bombing;
    * the July 1996 bombing at Centennial Park during the Atlanta Olympics, which killed one person and injured more than 100;
    * the summer 1999 shooting sprees by lone gunmen targeting minorities in the Chicago and Los Angeles metropolitan areas, which left three people dead.

    Law enforcement officials have prevented planned attacks on government offices and other right-wing terrorist plots.

  • dr winger

    It seems many of you are confused. I will try to clarify. “Movement” conservatism is a right-wing ideology. There are a variety of ideologies that could also be described as right-wing. Many of these ideologies conflict with each other: witness the bitter debates between neoconservatives and paleoconservatives. Nazism is a right-wing ideology. This does not mean that what mainstream conservatives think is what Von Brunn thinks. This does not mean that conservatives are Nazis. You should remember that much of the German opposition to Hitler was conservative and nationalistic in character (partly due to the elimination of left groups early in his reign, but whatever). Calling Von Brunn a “leftist” is risible and dishonest.

  • He’s a registered Democrat. He’s a socialist. He’s a truther. I don’t know in what world that would qualify him as a right winger.

  • dr winger

    He is a socialist in the sense of National Socialism. He is a (neo-)Nazi. I would suggest viewing his politics through his overriding anti-semitism. 9-11 truth has been exploited by paranoid extremists of all kinds.

    It’s easy to pick two or three points and say “these are rightist ideas” or “these are leftist ideas,” but that ignores the ideological background that led to them. Abortion was banned under the Nazis not because of any concern for unborn life. Similarly, Nazi eugenics weren’t based on any concern for the welfare of the terminally ill.

    Again, using Von Brunn to tar mainstream conservatives is unfair. There’s no need to misrepresent the truth to defend yourself, however.

    You really don’t red much history, huh?

    Chiropractic practice aside; read some history, stay away from right-wing blogs and talk radio and actually learn something. You are a tool “D” level tool of that goddamn echo chamber.

    Shouldn’t you be smarter than that?

    Read a history book, for Christ sakes!

  • “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” – left-wing German labor activist Adolf Hitler, “May Day” May 1, 1927
