Accused Holocaust Museum Shooter Also Went After Obama in Net Rants

CaribWorldNews, WASHINGTON, D.C., Thurs. June 11, 2009: The White Supremacist who allegedly burst into the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington on Wednesday and gunned down a security guard did not just fume about Jews but he also ranted on the Internet about President Barack Obama and immigrants.

James von Brunn`s name dots the net on various White extremists and far right sites but especially on his own site, Holyhemisphere.org. The 88 year old of Maryland was also among those questioning President Obama`s citizenship.

On Dn.No, he wrote that Obama`s `footprints` in the U.S. were missing. He insisted that all the President`s records, from his birth certificate to school records were missing in action and that no one in the media was questioning it.

Then he questions of his readers: `How much longer are we going to sit on our hands and say not a word?`

He also asked: `WHERE ARE THE GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY? ARE YOU OUT THERE?`

Police on Wednesday say that a lone man entered the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C on Wednesday afternoon at 12:50 p.m. and shot and killed a security guard. Other security guards responded and returned fire. The first security guard and the shooter were shot and brought to a hospital. Von Brunn, who traces his roots to Germany and Austria and was an artist, was identified as the alleged shooter.

A Web search for Von Brunn returns a number of anti-Semitic Web sites. His bio on his Web site, Holy Western Empire , says the following: `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.`

And in a recent blog post, Von Brunn wrote that Hitler`s `worst mistake` was that `he didn`t gas the Jews.`

Von Brunn`s anti-Semitism was channeled into the book he wrote and self-published in 2002, To Kill the Best Gentiles!, which he described as `the racialist guide for the preservation and nuture of the white gene pool.` 

Its thesis is the standard refrain of white supremacists for many decades, that Jews are on a mission of `destruction of all Gentile nations through miscegenation and wars,` and the `Zionist Occupied Government` of the United States is welcoming `huge numbers of fecund non-White immigrants` in order to destroy the white race through inter-racial breeding.  One white supremacist, after reading his book that year, nominated Von Brunn as a `White Racialist Treasure.`

In 1981, he traveled from New Hampshire, where he was living at the time, to Washington, D.C., to the headquarters of the Federal Reserve Board.  Carrying several weapons, including a sawed-off shotgun, he ran past guards up to the second floor, where the Board was meeting at the time.  However, police caught up with him outside the meeting room and arrested him. 

Von Brunn was charged with attempted armed kidnapping, second-degree burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon, carrying a pistol without a license and two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon.  In 1983 he was convicted and sentenced to four to 11 years in prison, of which he eventually served six and a half years.
