Here is a new one for the list: James W. Von Brunn.
A security guard and two other people were shot today inside the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in downtown Washington, authorities said.
U.S. Park Police said a gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire on the security guard and that other security guards returned fire. The gunman was reported wounded.
The shooting was reported to police at 12:52 p.m., and officers rushed to the scene just south of Independence Ave. bordering the Mall.
Scores of police and emergency vehicles converged on the scene, blocking 14th Street, a major artery between downtown Washington and the Virginia suburbs.
D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department spokesman Alan Etter said there was no immediate information on the shooter. He said two men were transported to a hospital with “serious” gunshot wounds.
One witness, Dave Unruh, of Wichita, Kan., said he was waiting to enter the museum when he heard one gunshot, then a sequence of four or five gunshots. He said he then heard someone scream, “Hit the floor!” He and his wife, Karen, and their two teenage grandchildren dropped to the floor and were subsequently herded out of the building by authorities.
Unruh called the experience “intensely, extremely frightening.”
By 1 p.m., the street in front of the museum was blocked by a museum police officer. A group of schoolchildren was rushed onto a chartered luxury coach and the bus driver struggled to pull away from the block.
This is from his bio, apparently written by himself or someone sympathetic to him: “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.”
And guess what!!
And may be not just hardcore Neo-Nazis on the right who liked Von Brunn’s work. A recent screed he wrote about President Obama’s birth certificate was posted on Free Republic, the conservative site.
But clicking on the Freeper link won’t bring you to this Right Wing Domestic Terrorist Birther’s post—not anymore.

FreeRepublic actually has some sane conservatives posting to their site, and they must be mortified by this. Good for the site admin not wanting to be associated with that post, but I wonder how long it was up there. Giving a forum to nutjob extremists is always a tricky business.
Here is a Birther post by Von Brunn in a different venue.
Von Brunn’s Wikipedia page has undergone a good scrub today, too.

This is an old man, a WWII veteran. It’s a shame he went to the dark side. I can’t help feeling rather sad for him, but nowhere near as sad as I feel for the victims and their families.
Never again let be said that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano didn’t have her head screwed on right with that right wing domestic terrorism report.
They’re out there and they are coming in.
