Skip to comments.Holocaust Museum Shooter: Christian hating Socialist

James Von Brunns writings dont sound very right-wing.
On June 10, the nation tragically witnessed a memorial dedicated to commemorating an atrocity become the site of yet more death. Just before 1 p.m., longtime neo-Nazi James Wenneker Von Brunn entered the Holocaust Museum on the National Mall and opened fire in an attempt to complete the Final Solution his hero had left tentative, an omission Von Brunn dubbed Hitlers biggest mistake. As former Defense Secretary Bill Cohen wandered the museum grounds, Von Brunn killed Stephen T. Johns, a black security officer, then was shot himself. As of this writing, the 88-year-old is in critical condition.
The white-wing fringe greeted the news with predictable joy. Its most popular website, Stormfront.org, saluted White Racialist Treasure: James Von Brunn in 2004; a thoughtful reader, seeing Von Brunn had backed up his recent threats with deadly action, wrote yesterday, Definitely needs a bump today. Another hoped the shooting would cause Americans to believe taking their children to Holocaust memorials is now an insurance risk.
Yet racists are not alone in their glee. Leftists have decided to exploit Von Brunns madness to engender fear of rampant conservative terrorism. They overlook one point: the shooter was not a conservative.
A review of his lengthy associations reveals Von Brunn hardly fits the stereotype of a Religious Right, GOP precinct captain. He denounced the Christian faith as a dastardly Jewish conspiracy, a HOAX invented by the Apostle Paul to DESTROY ROMAN CULTURE from within by undermining its pagan virility. (All screaming capitalization and grammatical errors in this piece appear in the original.) Like others on the racist fringe, the shooter proclaimed clearly: SOCIALISM, represents the future of the West.

There was a guy on Beck’s show last night who said something to this effect. Essentially, right-wingers are compassionate individualists. They would not seek out the death of a person due to race, religion, etc.
In this case, the guy is an admitted racist, bigot, and anti-semite—that catapults him to the left side of the aisle and their “equality” collectivists.
This article doesn’t surprise me.
The usually staid Alan Colmes smeared the mainstream conservative website FreeRepublic.com, an attack quickly recycled by a ThinkProgress.org reader, who added this sterling political analysis: There isn't really a line drawn between the right wing base and neo-Nazis any more. It's a single continuum, and freepers is right there in that gray area.
I guess the Christian compassion is not very much to his liking.
Please don’t refer to crooks, bums, killers and lunatics as gentlemen. They are difinitively not.
Practically anyone can post on Free Republic and not all the posts are gems.
difinitively = definitively
But I put gentlemen (actually gentleman) in italics! Italics are used for emphasis and, also, for irony. I was using italics when referring to him for irony. It's a common practice.
A liberal Nazi bent on murder! Who would have thought... /sarc
I find it funny that Obama and all the MSM talking heads talk about this racist, white supremacist and his hatred towards Jews and Blacks, but they can’t bring themselves to say the same thing about Obama’s boy “Reverend” Wright and his racist comments towards Jews and White people.
Great article. I’m passing this along. Thanks for posting it.
With all the assassin’s anti-Christian rants, he most reminds me of Obama and his people.
They are right of communist but left of liberal and even further left of conservatives Calling Nazis right wing is a liberal trick to put conservative in the same bucket as Nazis but liberal ideology is much closer
But to be fair, it's also true that on our side we often lump liberals of many different types and temperaments in the same wicked grouping too. I think both sides would do well to show a little maturity and realize that not everybody opposed to their view of things is an evil enemy. Our republic presupposes that people are mature enough to handle political differences without falling to political hysterics.
Racist Leftist goes beserk. Got it.
He definitely has a lot more in common with 0bama’s crowd (Wright, Farakhan, Black Panthers, Muslims, etc)
than with any conservative.
There's no group in the world that generates comments that are all gems. None.
But the reality is this...there is virtually no anti-semitism here on FR...quite the opposite.
This shooter was as far from FR's general mentality as night is from day. I'm surprised to hear that Little Green Footballs bashed FR. I thought they were pretty much like this forum.
I’m sure that Napolitano is updating her targeted profile. < /s>
Ah, more news that’s not fit to be reported by the Lame Stream Media (because it doesn’t fit in with their agenda).
