Gosh, what a totally unexpected development:
Holocaust museum shooter reportedly white supremacist whose writings were posted on Free Republic.
This afternoon, a gunman apparently shot at least one person at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. MSNBC is reporting that the suspected shooter, who also sustained gunshot wounds, is James Von Brunn, a white supremacist born in 1920. Brunn has been approvingly cited on Stormfront, a national white supremacist website. He is apparently the author of a tract called, “Kill the Best Gentiles,” which his website describes as “a new, hard-hitting exposé of the JEW CONSPIRACY to destroy the White gene-pool.”
Reported Kate McMillan of the Canadian blog Small Dead Animals, "I've never met the guy. Sure, we exchanged a couple e-mails and he's a big fan but, beyond that, nothing. Now get off my property! I've got a gun!"
AFTERSNARK: So ... an anti-Semite who's also a raving white supremacist. I'm thinking there's going to be just truckloads of cognitive dissonance over at the Blogging Tories this evening. Call it a hunch.
PRETTY BAD TIMING, THAT. As M@ points out, not long after the DHS report on potentially escalating right-wing violence came out, airheaded wanks everywhere went absolutely ballistic, screaming about conservative profiling, the unfairness of it all, a concerted, Obama-driven attack on conservatives, etc, etc. yadda yadda yadda. And yet ... and yet ... in the less than two months since that article, ... well, do I really have to draw you a freakin' picture?
On the other hand, we on the Left are uncivil monsters because we sometimes use naughty language. I hear that's worse.
