Awful news today: A man opened fire in the Holocaust Museum in DC — reportedly killing a museum guard, Stephen Tyrone Johns.The suspect is 88-year-old James von Brunn, a white supremacist and anti-semite who has said some truly vile things.
As Dana Goldstein writes,
A World War II veteran and resident of Maryland, Von Brunn is the author of a pamphlet
entitled “Kill the Best Gentiles: A new, hard-hitting exposé of the JEW
CONSPIRACY to destroy the White gene-pool.” He is a Holocaust denier
who has written that “Hitler’s worse mistake” was that “he didn’t gas the Jews.”
She also notes that, like Dr. Tiller’s murder, this act constitutes domestic terrorism.
I can’t really find the words to say much else about this right now. How awful. My thoughts are with Johns’ family.
