Holocaust Museum Attack: This Violence Must Stop

Today is another tragic day.  Just a little more than a week after the murder of Dr. George Tiller, 88 year old James Wenneker von Brunn walked into the National Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. with a rifle and murdered a security guard,  From MSNB:

“NBC said he may have had connections to hate groups or anti-government groups.

… Von Brunn is believed to have had contact with law enforcement in the past, according to NBC. A D.C. Superior Court jury convicted a man by the same name in 1983 of attempting to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve Board.

The case involved a 1981 incident in which police arrested Von Brunn at the board’s headquarters carrying several weapons. He was convicted and later released from federal prison in 1989, records show.”

Here’s how von Brunner described he conviction on his website which has been largely unavailable today.  From Crooks and Liars:

“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 so what is the response from conservative pundits? To label the shooter as a leftist and accept no part of the blame for whipping up extremists with their inflammatory rhertoric, and launching into even more inflammatory rhetoric:

And remember what happened when the Department of Homeland Security published a report warning of right wing extremist violence earlier this year:

Shepard Smith gets this, you get this, I get this.  We need to keep calling out conservative pundits for their inflammatory speech. With a public soapbox comes responsibility and Limbaugh, Beck, O’Reilly, Hannity, etc., are not taking any responsibility for their speech.  Its time they do or they should find themselves off the air.

There is no comparison between Keith Olberman and Rush Limbaugh. I watch both programs occasionally, and from what I can see, Rush is screaming hate and vitriol, and Keith is making fun of him. Their programs have little to nothing in common. One guy is screaming accusations and the other guy is pointing out the hypocrisy of those accusations. The only thing in common is the subject matter.

The penultimate vid or third from the top - this guy definitely is the enemy and if he think he and his group is the US of A then yes because they're the Fascist Party of the US of A no different than Thule precursor to the Nazi Party or Mussolini and the Black Shirts. The big mistake that Jews allowed to happen was for Democratic-republicans to ignore everything that Hitler did except the Holocaust and then the D-rs proceeded to learn and adopt everything else the Nazis did. The Nazis defeated the US of A and overthrew America the only difference is they don't intern and gas chamber Jews

Yes Clare, I believe he is a registered Democrat...hehehe

it's just a joke people!! ;-)

That out of the way, does anyone else get tired of the hatred...on Care2? Seems we all are concerned about the troubles in this world, otherwise why join this particular site? So, I would really like it if we could not spew hate on each other, let's start small and see if SOMETHING...ANYTHING can come from it.

I don't know, just seems we can do better.

This is retarded. Have you read the info on this guy's website? He flat out states he hates neo-cons. He hates capitalism. He was a nutjob with zero ties to any conservative agenda. How is this guy a right winger? If you believe he was a right wing nut you need to go back and relearn the ideologies of each party.
