Neo-Nazi kills guard at U.S. Holocaust Museum

Neo-Nazi kills guard at U.S. Holocaust Museum

An elderly white supremacist opened fire with a rifle inside the crowded U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum early Wednesday afternoon, gravely wounding a security guard before two other officers returned fire.

The security guard died of his wounds in hospital a few hours after the attack and the assailant was listed in critical condition.

Police named the gunman as James Von Brunn, an 89-year-old linked to a Web site advocating anti-government and anti-Jewish sentiments. A law enforcement official said Von Brunn's vehicle was found near the Washington, D.C. museum and tested for explosives.

The assailant was in critical condition, said Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty. Police chief Kathy Lanier said the gunman appeared to have acted alone.

Fire department spokesman Alan Etter told CNN a third person was hurt after being cut by broken glass.

The museum normally has a heavy security presence with guards positioned both inside and outside. All visitors are required to pass through metal detectors at the entrance, and bags are screened.

It was not immediately known whether the gunman made it through the detectors before opening fire. He was engaged by security guards immediately after entering the door, Police chief Lanier said.

The museum, located just off the National Mall near the Washington Monument, is a popular tourist attraction. It draws about 1.7 million visitors each year.

Roads surrounding the museum were closed just after the attack.

Stephanie Geraghty, 28, who had been visiting the museum, said the shooter appeared to be a white male carrying a silver gun.

"I heard the first shot, it sounded like something had been dropped from the upper stories down," she told Reuters. "The next two came really fast - bam bam. At that point everyone took off, chaos, running."

A woman whose teenaged daughter was visiting the museum at the time of the shooting said that the children heard several gunshots before they were evacuated from the building.

Sandy Perkins says her daughter, Abigail, called her shortly after the
shooting and said some of her friends were very shaken, but otherwise were fine.

The teens did not see where the shots were coming from before they were safely evacuated to buses outside the museum.

Police search Von Brunn's home in wake of shooting

Von Brunn is being investigated as the prime suspect in the shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Museum, according to unnamed law enforcement agents, but officials have declined to publicly confirm him as their suspect.

According to Joseph Persichini, assistant director in charge of the Washington FBI field office, authorities have dispatched people to a suspect's home to check his computer. He said they are investigating this as a possible hate crime or domestic terrorism.

Von Brunn has a racist, anti-Semitic Web site and wrote a book called Kill the Best Gentile.

In 1983, Von Brunn was convicted of attempting to kidnap members of the
Federal Reserve Board. He was arrested two years earlier outside the room
where the board was meeting, carrying a revolver, knife and sawed-off shotgun.

At the time, police said Von Brunn wanted to take the members hostage because of high interest rates and the nation's economic difficulties.

On his Web site, Von Brunn says he was a PT boat captain in the U.S. Navy
Reserves during World War II.

Soon to follow:
The beating of the propaganda drum for Israel.

My suspicion is that Israel got tired of being slammed for their atrocities in Gaza and they set up the shooter by Mossad operatives....if he wasn't one himself. This story should prove interesting as it unfolds.

Check this article out for some other interesting tidbits...Notice CBS's little sub-topic headline?

Quote:Shooting Suspect Wrote Of 'Holocaust Hoax'
Known White Supremacist James Von Brunn, 88, Served Time For Attempted Kidnapping In The 80s
-CBS News Interactive: Guns In America

(CBS) The man who is suspected to have opened fire Wednesday at the Holocaust Museum in Washington is a white supremacist and a convicted criminal who served time for an attempted kidnapping of federal officials.

James Wenneker von Brunn, 88, gained infamy in December 1981, after an attempt to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve, including then-Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker - the current chair of President Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Von Brunn was arrested at the Federal Reserve on Dec. 7, 1981, with a revolver, a hunting knife and a sawed-off shotgun on his person, according to reports.

Postings on his own Web site - which is filled with racially-motivated hate speech - reveal von Brunn's grievances with the government that motivated his attempted kidnapping.

"I intended to bind their hands, and persuade them to appear on Television," von Brunn wrote on his site, "There, on camera, I intended to read to the American public my indictment of these treasonous liars. If I survived I expected to be arrested, then stand trial before a jury of my peers."

According to reports at the time of conviction, von Brunn told police he wanted to take Federal Reserve Board members hostage to focus media attention on the board's responsibility for high interest rates and the nation's economic turbulence.

Von Brunn was sentenced in 1983 to 11 years in prison after being convicted by a jury and judge to whom von Brunn referred on his Web site with racial epithets. He served six and a half years in prison, and most of his sentence was carried out at the Ray Brook, New York Federal Correctional Institution.

After his arrest, he wrote a letter to then-Navy Secretary Jim Webb (now a Democratic Senator from Virginia) to create interest in his case, referring to himself as a "political prisoner."

According to the autobiography on his Web site, von Brunn served on a PT boat during the Second World War and was based on Corsica, an island off the southeast coast of France. He wrote of recovering a Nazi flag from an enemy boat and keeping it until it was "destroyed" after his "house was torched in 1977."

In 2002, von Brunn published on his Web site a book that detailed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, with chapters such as "the Holocaust Hoax" and "the Negro." The book was mostly anti-Semitic but also attacked all non-white ethnicities.

"We are witnessing today on the world stage a tragedy of enormous proportions: the calculated destruction of the White Race," he wrote.

He threatened to take action against minority races, writing "we will offer a plan to remove the cancer from our cultural organism."

Von Brunn moved to New York City after World War II, and by his own account served as an advertising executive and film producer for 20 years. He claimed to be a member of Mensa, the high-IQ society.

Born on July 11, 1920, Von Brunn currently resides in Annapolis, Maryland.

One can only wonder if he was subjected to any mind-control/mind altering programming inside the federal prison. I can imagine it would be pretty easy for the authorities to have him mentally "evaluated" thereby giving him one on one time with some "doctor" - prime candidate for some psychopolitical brainwashing imo.

Von Brunn.....

"Over the years Revisionists have asked me to write about my effort in 1981 to place the Board of Governors, Federal Reserve System (FED), under legal, non-violent citizens-arrest. The subject resides in my memory like old road-kill. What could have been a slam-bang victory turned into ignoble failure. Recalling all of this presents an onerous task. I am getting near the end of the diving board.

( I've already covered the FED in my Ms. "Kill the Best Gentiles !" which no one would publish. ) However, because there may be lessons in my story for young Americans, I have decided to give it a whirl."
