Watching the news last night and reading about it on half a dozen websites today, I decided that I'm going to post about James von Brunn, the white-supremacist who walked into the Holocaust museum in DC yesterday and killed a security guard...
First off though, I'd like to offer my condolences to the family of Stephen T. Johns the security guard who lost his life to take down von Brunn.
When you go to von Brunn's website you can see the ignorance and hatred of this WWII veteran. He promotes his book called: "Kill the Best Gentiles!" that he claims is "A new, hard-hitting exposé of the JEW CONSPIRACY to destroy the White gene-pool". This guy is a total nut-job. He's tried in the past to kidnap board members of the federal reserve and he's been to jail for his "cause".
Yesterday I was writing about causes and those I didn't understand, this in one of the ones I don't understand. How does one deny the Holocaust? Why is white-supremacy so important? Why walk into a museum to kill people? What pushes a man to do this? And more importantly why does he have supporters?
I have family members who were in those death camps and I have family members who were POWs in concentration camps.
No one can make me believe it didn't happen and no one can make believe that being white gives you the divine right to rule the world. How can a person have so much hate in their hearts as to want a whole race wiped off the face of the earth? How can a person born and raised in a free country like the US, born with the privilege of a good education system, born with the right to choose his destiny decide one day that all of his failures and shortcomings be caused by the people his fellow soldiers died to save in WWII?
On second thought... I don't even want to know. I think the answers would be even more mysterious and frustrating than the questions.
