James Von Brunn – Birther, Racist, Alleged Killer

Brian Beutler and Zachary Roth have the background on the man who murdered a security guard at the Holocaust Museum.

Von Brunn, apparently a World War II vet, has a long history of white supremacist writing. His book, “Kill The Best Gentiles,” embraces Adolf Hitler’s view that Jews concocted World War I as part of a scheme to stab Germany in the back — a myth the Nazis used to justify the Holocaust.

He also wrote an internet posting complaining that Obama’s birth certificate and other documents have not been made public.

This was probably a bad day for Rush Limbaugh to joke about Barack Obama’s citizenship and Jeremiah Wright to start ranting about “the Jews” keeping him from Barack Obama.
