That's what this D.C. resident (an aspiring reporter) is tweeting (here and here). Don't know if it's true. (Though the 1920 birthdate strains credulity -- an 89-year-old shooter?)

Washington Post story here.


The Twitterer works at NBC, and those demographic details come from this NBC story:

The suspect, who was not identified, was reportedly a man, born in 1920, who had possible connections to hate groups or anti-government groups.


MSNBC's Pete Williams is reporting that the shooter (James Wittiker Von Brun (sp?), born in 1920) was arrested in the early 80s for carrying weapons into the Federal Reserve building complaining about interest rates, and has made many anti-Semetic remarks on his Web site since, blaming Jews for his imprisonment, etc.

He reportedly also hates Catholics, blaming them for the collapse of the Roman Empire, etc, according to another MSNBC report.

Here purportedly is the man's Web site.

I can't get through to it directly, but the cached version is here. It says in part:

James W. von Brunn holds a BachSci Journalism degree from a mid-Western university where he was president of SAE and played varsity football.

During WWII he served as PT-Boat captain, Lt. USNR, receiving a Commendation and four battle stars. For twenty years he was an advertising executive and film-producer in New York City. He is a member of Mensa, the high-IQ society.

In 1981 Von Brunn attempted to place the treasonous Federal Reserve Board of Governors under legal, non-violent, citizens arrest. He was tried in a Washington, D.C. Superior Court; convicted by a Negro jury, Jew/Negro attorneys, and sentenced to prison for eleven years by a Jew judge. A Jew/Negro/White Court of Appeals denied his appeal. He served 6.5 years in federal prison....

In 2008, a Stormfront poster called von Brunn's book Tob Shebbe Goyim Harog (Kill The Best Gentiles) "monumental." Another Stormfronter called him a "white racist treasure."


This is unsettling, following the Tiller shooting (and April's Pittsburgh cop shootings, also by a white-supremacist conspiratorialist). I don't associate hardcore anti-Semitism with the modern Limbaugh/Cheney/Murdoch/Gingrich/Palin right, so I can't link this in a direct way to the usual targets of my anger ... and yet it's as if a free-floating desire to inflict violence is making a lot of crazy people's pots boil over this spring and summer. It's as if the replacement of a peevish, proud "war president" with a soft-spoken, pro-negotiation (and, of course, Democratic and non-white) president has made angry people feel that anger itself is being repressed.

And I should add that, obviously, an anti-Semite who's made mad by the Federal Reserve might be unable to cope with what's being done in D.C. right now to shore up the financial system.

Ultimately, I think the old-style crazies are taking what they need from the new post-racist right-wing demagogues. Beck and his pals on Fox don't need to go all racist or anti-Semitic on the Obama administration to hit the anger buttons of the Stormfront crowd -- they just have to suggest that the financial doings are sinister and evil; they just have to create an ongoing wiki-style Protocols of the Elders of Liberalism (which is the prime directive of the right-wing media these days), and believers in the original Protocols will just plug it into what they already believe....


Von Brunn is a Holocaust denier, naturally -- but he puts a twist on denial by saying that Hitler's biggest error was not committing genocide:


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.).

Bit by bit Liberalism ascended. Bit by bit the Constitution was re-interpreted. Bit by bit government institutions and Congressmen fell into JEW hands -- then U.S. diplomacy, businesses, resources and manpower came under JEW control.

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.

Whites LOVE their Enemies.

Today, on the World stage, Whitemen are LAUGHED AT, their women bred by stronger men.

And America ?

America is a Third-World racial garbage-dump -- stupid, ignorant, dead-broke, and terminal.

Prepare to die, Whitey.


Yikes. Yeah, it's no surprise that a financial interventionist black president was going to set a guy like this off. (Though he was arrested and convicted for an armed intrusion at the Fed during the Reagan years.)


AND: Gosh, can you believe those Department of Homeland Security people were worried a couple of months ago about right-wing extremism? Whatever could they have been thinking?


MORE: Von Brunn hates: Jews, Catholics, Muslims,* blacks, Hispanics, democracy, communism, neoconservatives ... and that's a partial list. Go here for the whole worldview in a few hundred words. *(UPDATE: I have to acknowledge that I read too hastily -- the link doesn't express hatred of Muslims, which I'm sure could be used as fuel for Debbie Schlussel's insane theories.)


OH, AND: He thinks (scroll down) Dwight Eisenhower was Jewish. (General Tommy Franks, too.)
