Two Shot at D.C. Holocaust Museum [Update: Shooter White Supremacist]
Radio and TV reporting that shots fired at National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. At least two shot.
I'll just go ahead and lay the odds at 2:1 that the suspect's name will be something like Joe Smith, but then in 48 hours we'll learn that he recently changed his name to Ahmed al-Jihad. Yet we'll also be told that that authorities are perplexed at what possibly could have motivated him.
2:1 odds aren't that great, actually. It still leads a lot of room for some other explanation. Say some skinhead? But that's the way the Jawa in-house bookies are calling it.
Thanks to multiple people.
UPDATE: He fired shots at guards, they returned fire.
UPDATE: Conflicting reports. Either the shooter entered with a rifle or a shotgun and opened fire, guards returned fire. One guard seriously wounded (prayers), the shooter also wounded (hopefully he dies).
The Consulate of Israel called the shooting at the holocaust museum"disturbing" and said it seemed "someone didn't internalize the message."Or maybe they did, just not the Holocaust Museum's message. Rather, the message sent on every Arab TV set on a daily basis that the world's problems will just go away when the Middle East is ethnically cleansed of all Jews.
UPDATE: Tom Elia has some great updates. Sadly, he reports that at least one of the quick thinking guards --- who probably prevented a massacre --- may have been shot critically.
UPDATE: American Pundit reports that JTTF is on the scene already:
There are dozens of police units outside the museum, effectively closing off the street. A terrorism task force from the FBI has been called to the scene.Further:
Okey dokey. The shooting occurred before the magnetometer area, so the gunman never fully made it into the museum.Those guards are heroes.
I've been to the museum a couple of times. Wouldn't the shooter have had to stroll a bit before he got to the entrance carrying at least one long gun? So, presumably people saw the gun before he got to the building.
Or maybe he was concealing it in a long coat...in D.C. ... in the middle of summer.
UPDATE: White supremacist. Had you made a 10 dollar bet at Jawa gambling central, you would now have a 100 dollar pay out. Better get your bets in early next time! Times Online:
At least three people were shot today at Washington’s Holocaust Museum, after an 89-year-old white supremacist entered the building and opened fire "indiscriminately".Tapper:
Told the suspect, white male, born in 1920UPDATE: Identified as James Von Brunn:
James W. von Brunn, b.1920, attempted to place the Federal Resrve Board of Governors under legal, non-violent citizens arrest, 12-7-81. Von Brunn charged the FED with treason and other high crimes. The FED, a private stock-company, owned by International bankers, financed the construction of manufacturing plants in the Soviet Union during the "Cold War." War materials, produced by FED financed plants, were used by the Enemy against American military forces in Viet Nam, and elsewhere.No doubt, that bio was written by von Brunn himself. (Thanks to America Pundit)
Von Brunn was tried and convicted by a Washington, D.C. kangaroo court; then sentenced to eleven years in federal prison by Judge Harriet Rosen Taylor; the sentence was confirmed by a racially motivated Appeals Court. Von Brunn was imprisoned for 6.5-years.
Von Brunn champions Western Culture,and the practice of Eugenics. He states that Marxism-Multiculturalism-Judaism is the Enemy of Mankind.citing Talmudic quotes to "Kill the Best Gentiles !"
Von Brunn was president of his college fraternity, SAE. He served as PT-Boat captain, USNR, during WW2, earning 4-battle stars and a Commendation Ribbon. His early business career was in NYC as copywriter, art-director and film producer; later as a real-estate broker; and lastly as a writer-artist.
A similar bio is here (cached).
His website Holy Western Empire has crashed. Archive.org version of it not working. Here's the Google Cache.
Great, the guy wrote a book, part of which is online. Guess what it's about:
From the second paragraph of Chapter 1 of his book:
“KILL THE BEST GENTILES!”
“Tob Shebbe Goyim Harog!”

JAMES W. VON BRUNN
The “American myth” (created by JEWS) alleging ourApparently, the Illuminati-Jewish-Jeffersonian conspiracy has finally been exposed! Perhaps the nutjob saw Angels and Demons (great movie, by the way) recently and wanted to expose the truth?
Founding Fathers intended that all races, from pygmy to
Ainu, be invited to our shores, is based on Thomas Jeffer-
son's words in the Declaration of Independence: “...all men
are created equal.” The meaning of this much quoted state-
ment has been distorted by the ILLUMINATI which subjec-
tively is re-writing history and wielding the alleged
“HOLOCAUST” like a battle-ax at the heads of those pro-
claiming genetic certainties: Men and races are NOT created
UPDATE: The face of a killer?
Thanks to Mongol.
UPDATE: More from Von Brunn:
HITLER’S WORST MISTAKE: HE DIDN’T GAS THE JEWS.Yes he did. But he didn't kill all of them. And now Brunn met a Jew. And unlike in Germany, he had a gun. Now we all hope Von Brunn is dead where he and his hero Adolf Hitler will be reunited.
UPDATE: Before the Left begins to call this guy a right-winger, here's More:
The biggest sleight-of-hand trick ever, was the establishment of ROTHSCHILD central-banks. The ILLUMINATI gets a piece of every citizen’s earnings. Nations pay JEWS for the use of their own (Nation’s) money. it’s similar to the KOSHER TAX ON MUCH OF THE FOOD YOU BUY. It doesn’t matter that you despise JEWS-NEOCONS-BILL O’REILLY you pay the tax - or else you don’t eat. Hillary, Obama, McCain, Ruppert Murdoch don’t mind paying the Kosher tax, why should you care .When the DHS talked about right-wingers, I think this is what they had in mind -- not Fox News hosts and bloggers who Von Brunn seems to think are part of the Illuminati conspiracy machine.
UPDATE: What is it with conspiracy nuts that makes them believe every individual conspiracy theory, and then weave them into some grand conspiracy? Turns out he's also a birther:
Obama has lived for 48 years without leaving any footprints -- none! There is no Obama documentation -- no records -- no paper trail -- none -- this is no accident. It is being done on purpose with Media help - but to serve whom & why??? ...It also appears that he uses the name "RUSH IS RIGHT" on the forum.
NOW he is privy to every top secret America has!
What is going on??? WHERE ARE THE GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY - ARE YOU OUT THERE???
Submitted by: James W. von Brunn
Which completely sucks for me because we've had our share of comments from someone calling himself "RUSH IS RIGHT". I'm sure there are dozens of people that go by that rather unimaginative nickname. I'm hopeful that it's a different guy.
And just to clarify something I've publicly stated on dozens and dozens of occasions: the oldest, most bloody, and most dangerous domestic terrorist organization in American history remains the Ku Klux Klan.
They are far less dangerous than they once were, and pale in comparison with the damage done to America by violent Islamists over the past 30 years, but they are nevertheless a terrorist organization.
In many ways what Von Brunn has done resembles an act of individual jihad. That is, just as some individual Muslims are inspired to violence by Islamist teachings some individual white supremacists are inspired to violence by neo-Nazism.
If Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar is a terrorist -- even though he was not a part of a formal network and conspiracy he was inspired by Hamas and Hizbollah -- then James von Brunn is also a terrorist -- inspired by terrorist groups like the Ku Klux Klan.
The term we apply to people like Taheri-azar is sudden jihad syndrome. What should we call this? Sudden Holocaust Syndrome? Sudden Antisemite Syndrome?
But in the case of von Brunn, it wasn't so sudden was it?
UPDATE: Tom Clancy (yes the Tom Clancy) on von Brunn:
eople like him interest me in a clinical sense because I am indeed a writer, and I often write about abnormal personalities...Von Brunn was an ass. Did I not say Clancy was a prophet?
I've known Colin Powell for over 15 years. He's is one hell of a fine man, and a truly great American, well respected by his peers - four-star officers - and, buddy, that's one tough audience. But to this von Brunn character, Colin is just another "nigger." ...
My FBI friends despise them all. Why? They are criminals, murdering terrorists, one of whom shit his drawers when arrested. Quite a man, eh? Von Brunn also walked into a government building, by his own account, armed (he claims the gun was not loaded, but one cannot tell that from three feet away can one?), and demanded that his rather eccentric view of the law be accepted by others. Well, you know, that's pretty damned dumb. He was sent to prison for stupidity, claiming to me that he was unfairly railroaded by Jews and others. No, buddy, he went to jail for being rather incredibly stupid, to the point of madness in my opinion. ...
Most offensive of all, after serving (so he said) his country in World War Two, he now says that he admires Adolf Hitler for his views and his actions. Hitler, in addition to being among the most evil men every born, was also a total fool, albeit a clever one in political terms, who though himself to be God's own gift to the human race. ...
Therefore, I conclude your friend is an ass. I tried to reason with him and failed. I add to his offensives the suggestion that the Catholic Church is peopled entirely with homosexuals (then also suggesting that they practiced their perversion on me) which was much more true of the German NDSAP than of the Church of Rome. In short, I have nothing for which to apologize, least of all to that ass von Brunn.
Thanks to Gerard Group Intel Analysis.
PS: Sudden Nazi Syndrome?
UPDATE: Via Michelle I learn that the guard has died. Prayers for his family.
