Shooting at Holocaust Museum: Do you think it was racially motivated?

The shooting was racially motivated. Maybe one of those Holocaust deniers.
The shooting was personal. Someone did not like that security guard at the Holocaust museum.

A person walked into the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. with a rifle and shot the security guard, who shot him back. Both people are wounded, but not dead. Students on a school field trip were safely evacuated when the gunshots were heard. Since this news just broke, there aren't many details yet. But what do you think?

    is a terrible view of things to come unless we recognise that Terrorism is not only from outside this country, and THAT SOME who wrap themselves in the flag are not always patriots. It is a shame that although we have come far, we have So much farther to go. WE MUST TAKE SERIOUS THE THREAT FROM THE RADICAL RIGHT! And realise that Hate speech,(Rush Limbaugh, the KKK, & others), is NOT protected speech... there is a DIFFERENCE!

    This shooting was definitly racially motivated. Did anyone read his comment? Not to mention his name was von braun, a long history of von brauns in the nazi regime.

    I think that was absolutely stupid. Who the frig shoots up a place like that? I went there a few years ago on an ROTC field trip....I thought it was really cool (if a bit depressing considering what it's about) I can't believe someone would do that

    This is a sick person, but there are many mental cases like him who are egged on by the vitriolic hate advocated by the likes of right wingnuts Limbo, O'Reilly, etc. Von Brunn should have been taken out immediately but since he wasn't, he should get the death penalty in the gas chamber. The guard died by the way.

    I think that one can only speculate here as the FBI hasn't released much info regarding the shooting yet.

    I wonder what was on the shooters aganda when the guard stopped him with a bullet.

    Apparently WHO TO KILL NEXT! Before the Guard stopped him with a bullet HE SHOT THE NICE GUARD WHO OPENED THE DOOR FOR WHAT LOOKED LIKE AN ELDERLY MAN! May god bless officer Johns, and bring peace and comfort to his family, he was a Hero!

    It is tragic when someone has to be so deranged to do something like this even if students weren't there. Kick his ass to the curb and send him somewhere where he can't really kill someone.

    "James Von Brunn, 88, a white supremacist and Holocaust denier, describes the assault with apparent pride on his Web site, the source of fulmination against Jews and races other than his own.

    Von Brunn wrote an anti-Semitic treatise, "Kill the Best Gentiles," that he said no one would publish. He decries "the browning of America" and claims to expose a Jewish conspiracy "to destroy the White gene-pool."

    Von Brunn also wrote, "The 'Holocaust' Religion is destroying Western Civilization. The Aryan gene-pool dies, 'unwept, unhonored and unsung.'"

    Any motive is possible, ranging from a random malicious act to rabid anti-semitism. It's doubtful it had much to do with the guard who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and who had the misfortune of being taken by surprise.

    I read the story on Yahoo. it said that the man was known for having anti-Semitic views. so, I'm guessing it probably was racially motivated.

    Yes, it was racist. He probably thought he was doing "God's" work just like the KKK and all the other crazies out there. You know, of course, that the KKK, the Southern Christian Alliance, the Southern Baptist Church, are all tied together. What you may not realize is how involved the Catholic Church was during Hitler's power years. Organized religion, white supremists, KKK, they are all the same. Their interpretation of the Bible is the only one that is "true" in their pea sized brains.

    I would leave Organized religion out of the list, because not all preach hatred - though far too many do - but I agree with the first two sentences entirely.

    yup. Many Christians helped hide and protect Jewish families in Europe.

    Alas, organized religion is not necessarily innocent. Look at what's happening in Israel, and perhaps you remember the Catholics sending bombs from Ireland to British post offices. Meanspiritedness and malice are not confined to individuals and small groups.
