Huffington Post is relaying information from NBC that the man accused of the Holocaust Museum shooting is 89-year-old James Von Brunn, who allegedly has ties to white supremacy groups:
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. (Read about von Brunn's "Federal Reserve Caper" HERE.) He is now an artist and author and lives on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
In a recent blog post, Von Brunn wrote that Hitler's "worst mistake" was that "he didn't gas the Jews."
NBC News' Pete Williams reported (rough transcript):The man authorities say they've arrested in connection with the shooting has a record. in 1983, or rather 1981, of walking into the federal reserve headquarters in Washington with several weapons claiming at the time he wanted to take members of the Federal Reserve board hostage to focus attention on what he said was their responsibility, high interest rates ... he was captured by the guard after he tried to run to the second floor. He was stopped outside the board room carrying a handgun and sawed-off shotgun and he was then arrested and convicted and on his website, he claims that he's very anti-Semitic, remarks about the Justice system. He said there were Jews on the court. Now you know, whether this had anything to do with the shooter today, we don't know, but the fact is, this man they've identified as James Whittaker von Brunm, he certainly has expressed anti-Semitic views in the past. He was living in New Hampshire, so he apparently, after serving his sentence, settled on the Eastern Shore ... and expressed very strong anti-Semotic remarks and views he's had for at least 20 years.
