Breaking: More domestic terrorism

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.

    The AJC has set up a fund for his family.

    I’m thoroughly disappointed that you provided so much coverage for Dr. Tiller’s murder but hardly any coverage for the Holocaust museum incident. Antisemitism is a feminist issue.

    I think, if nothing else than from the evidence of this site, some issues are “more feminist” than others.
