UPDATES: The incredibly courageous security guard and one brave brother at the USHMM, Stephen Tyrone Johns has died, after saving the lives of many others. I know you join me in praying for him and his loved ones.Also:

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said President Obama was “concerned” and “saddened by what — what has happened”.

What happened at the Holocaust Museum is a shame. The USHMM was a client of mine and I can tell you that they are well-prepared for attacks. Security (sadly) has always been tight. You don’t just roll up uninvited to their offices, let’s put it that way. Now an old and angry white man has taken it upon himself to threaten the lives of those who threaten him not.

The not very well coded rhetoric of some right wing pundits like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Pat Buchanan, Sean Hannity, etc, I believe, is partly to blame. It was only a matter of time before violence ensued because of speech that’s filled with hate and division. Terrorism comes in multiple forms and more than one race. It will be interesting to see if conservative hate speech moderates as a result of this incident or if they continue to stoke the flames of discontent among those confused by change. Let’s not forget the connection between homegrown whites-only terrorists, racism and anti-Semitism:

Von Brunn considered himself a student and acolyte of Rear Adm. John Crommelin, an anti-Semite who worked with Pierce, the neo-Nazi whose novel, “The Turner Diaries,” inspired Timothy McVeigh to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995.

Here’s how the terrorist describes himself, showing the strong links between race hate and anti-semitism:

James W. von Brunn holds a BachSci Journalism degree from a mid-Western university where he was president of SAE and played varsity football.

During WWII he served as PT-Boat captain, Lt. USNR, receiving a Commendation and four battle stars. For twenty years he was an advertising executive and film-producer in New York City. He is a member of Mensa, the high-IQ society.

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.

Very nice. Naturally, the white supremacist community is delighted. One said on Stormfront: ” James von Brunn deserves our utmost respect. The man is visionary.”

I pray for all involved, especially any children who witnessed this. As a friend told me, “This is a real lesson. The need for the Holocaust Museum continues even today.” Share your thoughts with the rest of the JJP family.
