Shooting Holocaust tourists: Sexy or not sexy? The lines are open.

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!"

: 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.

I can hear the Blogging Tories being pissed because he's not a Muslim...

I can't believe that this happened, especially since that report warning of growing right-wing terrorism was so demonstrably proven to be false and nothing more than a politically-motivated attack by B. HUSSEIN Obama on conservatives.

It's odd that the Shlemazls of the world haven't yet figured out the obvious.

Haters are haters. When the Wendy Sullivans and Kathy Shaidles get bored with Muslims, they'll refocus once again on the scapegoat of choice for racists the world over.

Just so everyone knows, that "link" from aser is jingus. It goes to a porn site that tries to run an unknown executable on your machine. I know you guys are too smart to follow the link, but I just want this out there in case my mom comes by. That woman cannot resist links. Alternately, it could be deleted by the sensitive and caring admins.
