It would not be right on a conspiracy website to read this and not think long and hard about those we have who speak out so strongly on this subject.

Makes you wonder if this person, James Von Braun, was or is on this and other sites like us.

How many have we had who are outspoken about Jews, in addition to outspoken about other races, even their intellegence level?

Mayor Adrian … By DEVLIN BARRETT and CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press Writers Devlin Barrett And Calvin Woodward, Associated Press Writers – 1 hr 32 mins ago
WASHINGTON – A frustrated artist and an angry man, the suspect in the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting once tried to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve board, a "caper" thwarted when a guard captured him outside a board meeting carrying a bag stuffed with weapons.

James Von Brunn, 88, Holocaust Memorial Museum Shootingand Holocaust denier, describes the assault with apparent pride on his Web site, the source of fulmination against Jews and races other than his own.

Von Brunn was sentenced in 1983 to more than four years in prison for attempted armed kidnapping and other charges in his Fed assault. He was released in 1989.

"The subject resides in my memory like old road-kill," he wrote. "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."

Despite the revolver, sawed-off shotgun and knife found in his bag that day, Von Brunn insisted he was trying to place the board under "legal, non-violent citizens-arrest."

A self-described artist, advertising man and author living in Annapolis, Md., Von Brunn wrote an anti-Semitic treatise, "Kill the Best Gentiles," that he said no one would publish. He decries "the browning of America" and claims to expose a Jewish conspiracy "to destroy the White gene-pool."

Von Brunn also wrote, "The 'Holocaust' Religion is destroying Western Civilization. The Aryan gene-pool dies, 'unwept, unhonored and unsung.'"

His lengthy, often rambling online biography aside, law enforcement officials are trying to piece together details of Von Brunn's life.

Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, said investigators are trying to better understand time he spent in Idaho, and how he acquired the .22-caliber rifle used in Wednesday's attack. At the request of the U.S. Park Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is tracing the weapon. Under federal law, convicted felons cannot purchase firearms.

In his account of his "Federal Reserve caper," the St. Louis native relates his "character shapers" — among them a schoolyard bully who beat him up, vacation days on the Mississippi River, his service on a PT boat in World War II, and what he said was his first trouble with the law — a year in jail for tussling with a sheriff on Maryland's Eastern Shore in 1968, the year he moved to the area from New York City.

Von Brunn applied to have his art shown at the Troika Gallery in Easton, Md., around the time the gallery opened about 12 years ago, two of the owners, Laura Era and Jennifer Wharton, told The Associated Press. They said they turned him down because it was not up to their quality and that made Von Brunn angry.

"He stomped out," Wharton said. "You don't normally get that reaction from artists."

They say his work was not strange or violent, but the artists they show have many years of professional experience.

Era and Wharton said they had heard that Von Brunn had been in jail because of his political beliefs and knew that he had prejudices. They did not feel comfortable around him, but said they didn't want to make him an enemy.

One time Von Brunn arrived at the gallery livid because he had just seen a mixed race couple getting married at the garden of the historical society nearby, Era and Wharton said.

Von Brunn was not around for years, but turned up a year or two ago. He did not spend as much time at their gallery as before and they did not encourage him to, the women said.

They said Von Brunn's work depicted images such as horses and buffalo in the American West or an eagle with the U.S. flag.

Von Brunn's biography on the artists' directory says his father, Elmer, was superintendent of Scullin steel mill of St. Louis, and their family, on both sides, migrated from Germany and Austria in 1845 or near that year. He is listed as producing portraits, illustrations, graphics and more.

Von Brunn's accounts of what shaped his character as a boy and young man are heavy with dark episodes blamed on Jews and other minorities. After each account, he draws a "moral."

Among them:

"Life and Death are opposite sides of the same coin. Fate flips the coin."

"Things to be proud of often involve high risk. You can't hide from death. It always finds you."

"It's better to be strong than right — unless you like dying. Crowds hate good guys."

What do you do to punish an idiot like this? 88 a life term means nothing and the death penalty he couldn;t live long enough to ever see. Probably terminally ill and this was probably intented to be suicide by cop.

Were you trying to say something about someone there G2? ;) :)

But I agree with you. I don’t understand people like this. They know they have no real punishment as well that’s the worst part.

What are you going to do to an old man? He could die today, he could go on for another 5 years. :roll: :x

I don't care much if someone is just outSPOKEN about their beliefs and ideas. Everyone is entitled to that.

With that said, kill him. He's gonna keel over soon anyways, at least make him go before his time.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

My suggestion, Don't kill him use the trial to highlight the danger posed by Neo nazis,white supremecists, holocaust deniers, and racists. Let him serve a normal sentence for murder in the humiliation that his nation and world has come to despise him for his crimes,

If you read some of the son's comments, you can see where this hatred is the blueprint for ruining the lives of everyone around you, and finally peaked for this jerk, at 88 years old. It was only yesterday, the Rev. Wright was interviewed and quoted as saying something nearly identical to what this man's journal said. He said "Them Jews won't let Obama talk to him", sounds very close to Bruun's Journal "Obama is the Jews puppet".

When you hear similar talk, and outspoken opinions, it certainly doesn't mean they will end up doing what Bruun did, but it certainly means to me, they are in the same blueprint racial hatred, and affecting the lives of everyone near them, negatively. Personaly lives a constant termoil. Enough so that his son expressed, it was a shame Mr. Johns died protecting others, and not his own Father instead. He tells of what it ment to his parents, and growing up, with a life of verbal and mental abuse.

Hopefully those who sympathized with this idiot or had views like him are doing a lot of soul searching, and hopefully saying "What the F*&@ is wrong with me"?

US museum shooter son slams father's 'cowardice'

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The son of white supremacist James von Brunn, who shot a guard at the entrance of Washington's Holocaust museum this week, slammed the "cowardice" of his father's actions on Friday.

"My father's actions are unforgivable," Erik von Brunn, 32, said in a statement to ABC News. "I do not expect, nor will I accept forgiveness for what he has done," he said.

Erik's 88-year-old father reached the entrance of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in the US capital on Wednesday, raised a .22 caliber rifle and fatally shot African-American museum guard Stephen Tyrone Johns, 39, in the chest.

Security guards returned fire, shot von Brunn and prevented him from entering.

Von Brunn will face murder charges for the crime, officials have said.

"I cannot express enough how deeply sorry I am it was Mr Johns, and not my father who lost their life," the shooter's Florida-based son said.

Erik von Brunn said his father's hatred for racial minorities and Jews destroyed his family, and resulted in the divorce between him and Erik's mother.

"My father's beliefs have been a constant source of verbal and mental abuse my family has had to suffer with for many years," he wrote in the statement.

"His views consumed him, and in doing so, not only destroyed his life, but destroyed our family and ruined our lives as well.

"Now, it is not only my families lives that are in shambles, but those who were directly affected by his actions; especially the family of Mr Johns, who bravely sacrificed his life to stop my father."

If convicted, James von Brunn faces life in prison without parole and could face the death penalty.

A search of the shooter's car left in the street outside the museum Wednesday turned up a notebook of handwritten anti-Semitic rants denouncing President Barack Obama as a Jewish puppet.

"The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews. Obama does what his Jew owners tell him to do," said one of the notes, which was signed James W. Von Brunn, according to an FBI affidavit.

Erik von Brunn had blunt words for racists and anti-semites who idolize his father's actions.

"For the extremists who believe my father is a hero: it is imperative you understand what he did was an act of cowardice," he said.

"To physically force your beliefs onto others with violence is not brave, but bullying. Doing so only serves to prove how weak those beliefs are. It is simply desperation, reminiscent of a temper tantrum when a child cannot get his way."

Pretty obvious why security guards have to me armed. Its as obvious as the reason for having a Museum of Tolerance in the first place.
