Von Brunn's Son Says Father's Act One of Cowardice

FIND STORY HERE

Hundreds attend reopening of DC's Holocaust museum

Jun. 14, 2009

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum reopened its doors Friday to crowds of visitors who came to pay tribute to the latest victim of the racial intolerance the institution is dedicated to opposing, and to call for its work to continue despite the threats it faces.

Those who visited the museum, which was shut the day before to honor Stephen Johns, the security guard killed by a white supremacist on Wednesday, called it a repudiation of the hatred James von Brunn showed when he opened fire at the building dedicated to the memory of those who died at the hands of the Nazis.

"It's important to come back, because if you don't, they win," 17-year-old Tammi Miller, who was evacuated from the museum during Wednesday's shooting, told The Washington Post. She and her family returned Friday to finish their tour.

According to the Post, Sara Bloomfield, the museum's director, said Friday witnessed at least as many visitors as a normal day, if not more.

She also praised those who came for performing "an act of defiance," which she described as an illustration "of what this country is all about."

On Saturday the museum announced it had set up a fund to benefit the Johns family, which comes on top of a similar fund set up by the American Jewish Committee on Thursday.

Johns, 39, a private guard who had worked at the museum for six years, left behind a wife and an 11-year-old son from a previous marriage.

His widow, who had recently celebrated their one-year anniversary, released a note Friday saying, "Steve was my husband and my best friend. He was my everything."

Johns was described by friends and coworkers as exceedingly kind and courteous. He left that impression on museum-goers too, including Dianne Romano, who Johns helped shortly before the shooting.

"He was so nice to us when we came in, telling us where to go," Romano recalled.

Johns apparently opened the door for the 88-year-old von Brunn, according to authorities.

Though it is not clear whether von Brunn, who was hit by return fire and has remained in critical condition, targeted Johns because he was AfricanAmerican, his writings - including a note police found in the car he parked near the museum - make clear that he despised blacks as well as Jews.

"The Holocaust is a lie," the note said. "[US President Barack] Obama was created by Jews. Obama does what his Jew owners tell him to do. Jews captured America's money. Jews control the mass media."

Analysts have reportedly seen an increase in extremist threats with the election of the country's first black president and the economic downturn, and are warning that a spate of similar attacks could be in store.

"I believe we are headed for an unprecedented level of conflict and racial turmoil," said Carol Swain, a Vanderbilt University expert on white nationalism.

Former FBI agent Danny Coulson said federal agents have increased their monitoring of white supremacist groups since Obama's election and have noticed increased chatter and membership.

"These neo-Nazi groups have been laying in the weeds for a long time," he said. "Then you have a president who comes in who's an African American and they hate that."

An April intelligence assessment by the Department of Homeland Security said right-wing extremists could use the troubled economy and Obama's election to recruit members.

Concerned von Brunn's actions could also be used to enlist followers to an ideology fostering "sadness and anguish," his son released a statement to ABC News urging that not happen.

"For the extremists who believe my father is a hero: it is imperative you understand what he did was an act of cowardice," Erik von Brunn wrote. "To physically force your beliefs onto others with violence is not brave, but bullying. Doing so only serves to prove how weak those beliefs are."

The killer's son went on to say, "His actions have undermined your 'movement,' and strengthened the resistance against your cause."

On a more personal level, he condemned his father's actions and the pain and suffering they have long wrought.

"His views consumed him, and in doing so, not only destroyed his life, but destroyed our family and ruined our lives as well. For a long time, I believed this was our family's cross to bear. Now, it is not only my families' lives that are in shambles, but those who were directly affected by his actions; especially the family of Mr. Johns, who bravely sacrificed his life to stop my father."

He added, "I cannot express enough how deeply sorry I am it was Mr. Johns, and not my father who lost [his] life."

  2. I think it demonstrates that there are those who, regardless of how they are raised, are capable of breaking out and thinking for themselves.

    The times really are changing. I see it a lot in the younger generation. Young people today are much more accepting of everyone than they were a couple of decades ago. By-and-large they aren't buying into the prejudices and bigotry of the past.

    Von Brunn's son, however, is probably not a young guy. I can only imagine what it must have been like growing up steeped in that kind of hatred. Now, as he said, the whole family suffers.

  3. Sort of how Wild Bill's so-called relatives came out of the wood work once he was dead.

    None of these people have a shred of honor.

  4. I can understand the son disavowing the actions of his father and dissociating himself from them. I can understand him expressing sympathy for the security guard who was killed.

    But to wish that his father had been killed instead? What a cowardly, disloyal piece of trash to throw his father under the bus like that. What ever happened to "Honor thy father and thy mother"? That doesn't mean you have to agree with your parents, but you never throw them under the bus.

  5. The father was ate up by hate. I can understand why someone would say what he said Anchorage Activist, I had someone I cared about go that way. He started believing fairy tales about how the Holocaust was a hoax (is anyone really that stupid?) and how Jews ran the government and even watched his every move. He became so ate up with hate he became someone else rather than the man I had once loved. I can understand how someone could feel that way.

  7. Nikki, would you still be saying the things you do about the killing if it was an ARA member that went berserk and did it?

  8. this "apologia" from vB's 'son' may well have been delivered under duress...at this stage, it is un-known wtf kind of pressure, intimidation and/or threats were made against him, his property and/or his family....jews & their orgs/"gofers" have a history of extracting mea culpas under threat(s) of real or implied violence & then spruiking such as "genuine repentance" (!; Frederick Toben from Australia & the case of the Argentinian bishop (Richard Williamson) are two such recent examples...as such: no real creedence can be given to this sort of "back-tracking"...only when such "U-turns" are given in a totally free & voluntary manner with no threats or implied threats in any area can they be considered "kosher"! :-|~

  9. Von Brunn was a sick man under the delusion of some paranoid fantasies such as blaming all our current woes on “the Jews”. The world of instant gratification IRC chat and the mind-world that it creates certainly fed his paranoia. Hopefully the widow of the guard he murdered will sue for his estate. That being said, there was an element of truth to what he said, and if not, the paranoia couldn’t have been fed. That kernel of truth is that the Nazi death machine consisted solely of ’starvation camps’ and shootings, not the fabled gassings that we’ve been led to believe. Although no less horrific, maybe more so, if the facts were to be uncovered without the purile labelling of “holocaust denial” then perhaps such paranoiacs would be, at last, stopped in their tracks.

  11. Is this Jimbo for real? Is he really that stupid? People like that should be locked up for societies well being if not their own. Only a total hate filled moron believes things like that. God, how stupid can you be?

    or: are you too brain-washed?

    much greater intellects than me, going back 2½-thousand yrs & more, have "called-out" the kike...are they also "stupid"?

  14. Yeah Carrie Jimbo is that stupid. It all started when he was in the womb, his mother started sniffing paint thinner and huffing paint. Also it was widely believe that his father was most likely his mother's father which is somewhat a tradition in his inbred backward family. To make matters worse his momma repeatedly (after birth) repeatedly dropped him on his misshapen head, which had the effect of making him pretend he was from Australia. He is legally retarded.

    Actually he is just a Anti who tries to make WN's look bad, pretending to me one.

  16. You know, I think all Jews should be force-fed pro-white propaganda one day, just like everybody is force fed Jewish propaganda now. That is, if we are still all in the same geographical boat.

    I'd start with the gulags of the Soviet Union. Plenty of evil Jew stories there for their children to hear. Then I'd move into the horrors of life for non-Jews living in and around Israel. After that, we'd have a talk about the Jewish wars that were fought so they could sip mixed drinks all day on Tel Aviv Beach.

    You see, Nikki, millions upon millions of people have died at Jewish hands, far more than ever died in the camps during WW2 (Jewish or non-Jewish). You are racist and don't even realize it since you obviously don't believe in anyone telling their side of the story except the Jews...except it goes deaper. It's not just a matter of opinion, it's a matter of Jewish life being more valuable than non-Jewish life.

    My relatives died in camps. Those camps were built and ran right here in the United States, set up by the federal government. HERE in the USA, but where are the memorials? Don't know what I'm talking about? Well, of course not! My relatives were white people and they don't have feelings, not like Jews have feelings! We had a brutal war here, you see. I'm still finding little traces of it now and again. You know, I found a cannon ball here, grew next to a former prison camp there, etc.

    Let me just speak for a large silenced part of America for a moment: we're sick and tired of hearing how bad the ruling class had it once. If 6 million Jews died, so what? Should I morn them over the millions more that died under communism (a close relative to your way of thinking)? Why?

    If nothing else, the holoco$t industry is starting to backfire. People are seeing the camps the Palistinians are forced to live in. People are hearing about the Ukrainian (real) holocaust. Folks are asking questions.

  17. Von Brunn's son reminds me of Wild Bill Hoff's brother. He's married to a negro, claims to be black (with blue eyes and light hair), has pictures of various communists all over his walls, ect.

    He has written me plenty of times, cursing, ranting, damning his brother. Wild Bill hadn't seen the man for many, many years. Not once did this man ask me who Wild Bill had been in his final years, nor ask me anything related to Wild Bill's personal life. All he could think about was trying to provoke me into making some sort of threat against him so he could stretch his 15 minutes.

    It made me sick to see someone treat their family like that. What we all have to keep in mind is two things. First, the anti-racist/white crowd is anti-family, that is, unless you have helped spawn a mixed one. That's the kind they like to parade around, while they last. If you preached being pro-family in the anti-racist movement, it would be more difficult to assault white people's culture (racism).

    Second, you have to understand how deap the intimidation factor runs. No, it isn't the threat of feces hurling ARA kids (those are the last resort after the media and the feds). It's the threat of being made a public spectacle and subsiquently ruined. Unless you "volunteer" to be a propaganda tool, you can face Soviet-styled reprocusions. People know this better than they know their own Constitution. It's a little form of state terror backed up by the press.

  18. This site is becoming boring; it always seems to follow the same pattern:

    * A tragic event with a WN at the center of it.

    * Nikki starts bemoaning the fact that there is an atmosphere of hate.

    * Which is followed up by calls for curtailing freedom of speech.

    Time to change the record.

  19. The trip is over folks, we are out of road. I wish I could tell you where you are going. If you don’t know or don’t have a map, it wouldn’t do me much good to try to tell you anyway. One thing is for certain; from here you will walk the rest of the way. For many it will be to destination unknown. Most are on the way to the City of Despair, in the State of Confusion, located within the Nation of Disgrace. For others, the destination will not be pleasant nor a matter of choice. You get the picture. Those who, “take all of your belongings and climb into the truck,” will weep in utter misery for the personal negligence that they brought upon themselves and their families. You will have paid the ultimate price.

  20. Who could cheer on what's coming? Did the people on their way to the Soviet gulags marvel over the propaganda posters to the point that they skipped the whole way? Is there a class of people in this country who just feel better off with zero freedom?

  21. Nikki, do you think Iran's elections are a result of voter fraud, just like the kind that got Obama elected? Remember that Iranians are brown people you are allowed to hate since they often dislike Jews, the authors of all things equal, sans themselves.

  26. No! Blacks only commit crimes when forced to by whites! The holocaust happened exactly the way we spent billions of dollars telling you and there is no such thing as ACORN.
