What Do We Need to Know About James Wenneker Von Brunn?

What do we need to know about James Wenneker von Brunn?

It is now widely known that von Brunn is charged with murder for the June 9, 2009 shooting death of security guard Stephen Tyrone Johns, 39, who had worked at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum for six years.

vonbrunn.jpgIn his 88 years, von Brunn left quite a trail of culture, comment and action. An artist, he painted in a representational style, according to his entry at askart.com. The amusing aspect of the painting shown here, as gawker.com points out: "It is a amalgam of Fragonard's The Reader and Picasso's Woman With a Book. A clever recontexulaization of classics by Renaissance and Modernist masters!" The sort of satirical, post-modernist commentary which accidentally negates the artist's intended promotion of representational art — a feat which smacks of Jew intellectualism. Oops! Too clever by half is von Brunn.

Thanks to the Wayback Machine, we see another side of von Brunn. The side approved of greatly by some senior members of our armed forces:

REAR ADMIRAL John G. Crommelin, USN, said this about James von Brunn: "It is my conviction that James von Brunn deserves the gratitude and assistance of every White Christian citizen of these United States."

The site's home page invites one to "Learn who has committed treason - and must be brought to justice!" Charitably, von Brunn allows readers to download the first six chapters of his 350-page book, Kill the Best Gentiles! for free. (SPOILER: The Jews did it.) The author took the title quote from Talmud Sanhedrin — and in keeping with the quality of his scholarship, he botched the cite:

He claimed the quote comes from Talmud Sanhedrin, 59B.

Von Brunn's citation is a few pages off (the correct text is on 57A), and he pulls the idea out of context and distorts it. Rabbi Gil Student, writing in "The Real Truth About the Talmud," put to rest a long time ago the canard that the Talmud enjoins Jews to kill Gentiles.

Of course von Brunn was obsessed about all the Jews who were trying to kill him — one of the best gentiles! Any schoolboy knows they are all-powerful masters of reality, capable of conquering and controlling The United States without firing a shot. And, they can fly.

Remember, the Federal Reserve Act (1913) gave JEWS control of America's MONEY. Followed by control of America's main sources of information .

Early on, during the war-torn 20th Century, the only broadcast networks : ABC, CBS, and NBC — were JEW owned. Today, JEWS control ALL important sources of information (The major networks, Newspapers, Magazines, Book-publishing, Tin-Pan Alley, Music & Recording Industry, Hollywood, Encyclopedia Britannica, Public schools and Universities, the Catholic Church, etc.) . . .

Whitemen sat on their collective asses and did NOTHING - NOTHING BUT TALK. Never before in World history has a Nation so completely been conquered with absolutely NO physical resistance.

Having spent much of his time on Earth living the life of the mind, von Brunn decided in 1983 to become a man of action. He attempted what he called a non-violent arrest of the board of the Federal Reserve in Washington, DC, armed with "a revolver, sawed-off shotgun and knife." Typically, he failed:

"The subject resides in my memory like old road-kill," he wrote. "What could have been a slam-bang victory turned into ignoble failure. Recalling all of this presents an onerous task. I am getting near the end of the diving board."

Von Brunn was released from prison in 1989.

But the most important thing to know and remember about James von Brunn: He is not alone.

Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, said investigators are trying to better understand time he spent in Idaho, and how he acquired the .22-caliber rifle used in Wednesday's attack.

Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center said von Brunn's Web site has long been listed as a hate site.

"We've been tracking this guy for decades," said Heidi Beirich, director of research for the law center's Intelligence Project, which tracks hate crimes.

Shouldn't be hard to track someone like von Brunn, with a Web namespace like this. So how does a man who has spent his adult life thumping the tub for hatred and violence — a convicted felon — get a long gun and make it into the national Holocaust museum, with no one noticing until Stephen Tyrone Johns is dead?
