An elderly gunman known to authorities as a white supremacist fatally shot a private security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in downtown Washington today before being wounded by guards who returned fire, officials said.
The security guard, who was identified by police as 39-year-old Stephen Tyrone Johns of Temple Hills, Md., and the gunman were both taken to George Washington University Hospital.
Johns died at the hospital, authorities said later, and the gunman was reported to be in critical condition. A third person sustained minor injuries in the incident, according to police.
President Obama condemned the shooting, which he said underscored the need for vigilance against anti-Semitism but that doesn’t even begin to address the complexity of America’s history toward the Nazi era.
Museum officials said in a statement that Johns had worked at the museum for six years. The museum said it would be closed tomorrow, and lower its flags to half-staff, to honor Johns's memory. "There are no words to express our grief," the statement said.
A law enforcement source identified the gunman as James W. von Brunn, 88. On an anti-Semitic Web site he apparently maintains extolling a "Holy Western Empire," von Brunn says he served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
Von Brunn’s name bears an uncanny resemblance to a World War II Nazi who worked feverishly on behalf of Adolf Hitler to ensure that soldiers like Von Brunn as well as countless civilians would be killed and their corpses shoved aside by the march of the Third Reich. That man was Hitler’s head scientist and engineer on the V-1 and V-2 rocket projects, Wernher Von Braun. Von Braun [“A]im[ed] for the stars” but as comedian Mort Sahl quipped “sometimes [he] hit London.”
Von Brunn, the failed Nazi, if he survives will be charged with murder. Von Braun, a highly successful and skilled Nazi walked into the loving arms of the American elite precisely because he knew what von Brunn was too ignorant to know---how to kill tens of thousands if not millions of people, a talent of great value to the U.S. kleptocracy.
Yesterdays, twisted fuck Von Brunn worked for 20 years as an advertising executive and film producer in New York and then became "an artist and author" living in Maryland whereas the full-blown Nazi, Von Braun who would have liked nothing better that to see Von Brunn torn to pieces by one of his V-2s became an American hero and legend.
Von Braun was scooped up and brought to America in by the OSS in Operation Paperclip a secret program to repatriate Nazis in America. And what was the fate of these Nazis corralled by the OSS and brought to America or resettled in Latin America. Did they receive the same fate that Von Brunn will receive if he survives---life in prison?
Fuck no! These were technologically advanced Nazis who were useful to the American kleptocracy. Von Braun worked on ICBMs and eventually became head of NASA. No hanging for Von Braun. No life behind bars.
As a film producer, one would imagine that Von Brunn was familiar with the sentimental Hollywood hagiography made about Von Braun’s miserable life. The Nazi murderer became the darling of the U.S. kleptocracy right in front of the eyes of ex-GIs like Von Brunn and the millions of other Americans who are victims of their own ignorance.
A woman who opened the door at von Brunn's apartment, in a neighborhood outside downtown Annapolis, declined to comment.
Neighbors, who asked that they not be identified, said that they recently invited von Brunn to their home for a drink and that he unexpectedly brought up his belief that the Holocaust did not occur. Von Brunn was a Holocaust denyer. Von Braun was a Holocaust murderer who with his Peenemunde pal Walter Dornberger worked to death thousands of Jews and whoever else like these right wing fools imagine don’t deserve to live.
Master Race Theater
Fuck Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. They’re just asshole entertainers. And as cynical as that is, compared to Von Braun, Von Brunn, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, Hannity et al are just wannbees.
"He didn't believe the Holocaust existed. It was just off the wall," one of the neighbors said. And Von Braun was an agent of the Holocaust. How fucking off the wall is that especially in light of the way the U.S. elite treated him, putting him in positions of authority with no punishment. The rich are different. They put their long term interests before justice every fucking time.
And that’s why this murder at the Holocaust museum beyond what political gain can be garnered means nothing to them. The contract for the new outsourced security contracts sure to follow are just a mere pittance of what they steal every hour though things always do have a way of further enriching the haves.
A spokeswoman for Wackenhut Services Inc., confirmed that the company provides security for the museum. According to the company's Web site, Wackenhut is the U.S. government's "largest contractor for professional security services."
The company has more than 8,000 employees in the United States and abroad. In the National Capital Region, it has 1,000 employees and 10 security contracts.
In a short biography on his Web site, von Brunn gave his birth year as 1920 and wrote that held a journalism degree from a "mid-Western university."
He boasted in the Web biography and on a Wikipedia page of an escapade in which he attempted to take over the Federal Reserve on Dec. 7, 1981, holding the Board of Governors "under citizens arrest" and charging them with treason. He was captured, tried and sentenced to 11 years in federal prison. He blamed a "Negro jury," "Jew/Negro attorneys" and "a Jew judge" for his conviction.
Upon his release after serving 6 1/2 years in prison, von Brunn said he joined Mensa, the society for people who score in the top 2 percent of a standardized intelligence test. An executive assistant at Mensa, Joy Martin, confirmed that von Brunn was a member for a year starting April 2, 1987. But he was dropped from the membership rolls in 1988 for failing to pay dues.
According to the biography, Von Brunn captained a PT Boat in World War II and earned "four battle stars." That claim could not be immediately substantiated.
Now, Von Brunn no doubt faces murder charges if he survives. But Von Braun whose crimes were exponentially more heinous never served a day under cozy American care much less faced the gallows. He was one of hundreds of high level Nazis cherished by the American kleptocracy exactly because he did no how to murder people and was able to devise weapons such as ICBMs capable of the kind of slaughter Von Brunn couldn’t even dream of.
