A NATION MOURNS  3:22 pm January 6, 2010

HOLOCAUST MUSEUM SHOOTER DEAD AS HELL: Hooray! James von Brunn, The Maryland Monster and celebrated local Nazi artist who shot and killed a security guard at the Holocaust Museum last year — only four blocks away from a Wonkette commenter! — has now himself died, in the hospital. Cause of death was MAYBE HIS 89 YEARS OF AGE? Either that or the usual form of white person death, an ACORN assassination. [Washington Post]

Dead as “the Dickens”?

Gopherit January 6, 2010 at 3:28 pm

You know who else is a dead Nazi…..

dum librul January 6, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Any day I see the return of the FOUR BLOCKS meme is a grand and wonderful day. If Glenn Beck’s time traveling future self had to pass on to make that happen, well…that’s OK.

germansteel January 6, 2010 at 3:30 pm

Why does god hate america so much? He could’ve took Rush Limbaugh, instead he takes this nobody.

memzilla January 6, 2010 at 3:30 pm

Dr. Saperstein, in the conservatory, with a candlestick.

magic titty January 6, 2010 at 3:30 pm

That comment was the greatest comment in the history of Wonkette.

BigDupa January 6, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Heard he was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia and just shivved himself.

Jim Newell January 6, 2010 at 3:32 pm

[re=490056]magic titty[/re]: Agreed. It’s certainly in my top 5. (I don’t remember the other four.)

JMP January 6, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Died of “undetermined causes”. Are we sure this wasn’t a Munich-style Jewish revenge squad?

Lascauxcaveman January 6, 2010 at 3:42 pm

[re=490059]Jim Newell[/re]: Today, we are all four blocks away from crazy, random shooters.

SayItWithWookies January 6, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Well that ends the yelling from the people on the right who kept saying he should be sent to Gitmo. Oh, wait — that never happened.

…fingerprints of the Bear Jew

ManchuCandidate January 6, 2010 at 3:46 pm

At least that old fucking shitbag lived long enough to see a black man live at the White House. Vaya Condios Motherfucking Nazee.

Oh hell to the no January 6, 2010 at 3:46 pm

I had honestly thought he’d died the day of the incident after being shot in the face. I guess not.

vigilante January 6, 2010 at 3:48 pm

If I was Binny Laden I’d have women put the bombs in dildos.
Then they could pass the bombs to the suicide boys after they went past the gate.
Crotch screening is mandatory. We must find those dildos.

dum librul January 6, 2010 at 3:50 pm

[re=490075]Oh hell to the no[/re]: The local police commissioner lit the Cheney Signal as soon as the incident was reported, but he never showed. Strange.

Terry January 6, 2010 at 3:51 pm


Well, he was a nobody unless you are related to the security guard he killed.

Barrelhse January 6, 2010 at 3:52 pm

If it was Acorn Assassins, they were on hashish.

Manos: Hands of Fate January 6, 2010 at 3:54 pm

I think Brad Pitt scalped him.

SmutBoffin January 6, 2010 at 3:55 pm

Whare iz teh DEFF CERTIFFIKATT? ACORN/Obamanation thugs won’t let this hero’s heroic sacrifice of heroism be recognized!

BigDupa January 6, 2010 at 3:56 pm

I’ll contribute $20 to a prize fund for the first photo of somebody pissing on this guy’s grave. Doesn’t Liz Glover need work?

Texan Bulldoggette January 6, 2010 at 3:57 pm

One less old to undergo the death panels in Barry’s socialist/fascist world, I guess. Other than that, I got nothing but hope he is getting the afterlife he deserves. (And there ain’t no virgins involved!)

Crank Tango January 6, 2010 at 4:00 pm

[re=490081]Barrelhse[/re]: see I knew I was an ACORN assassin.

Come here a minute January 6, 2010 at 4:04 pm

[re=490059]Jim Newell[/re]: Since this old dude never shot at you, making fun of his death is maybe inappropriate and kinda fucked up to post.

Seriously, wtf?

queeraselvis v 2.0 January 6, 2010 at 4:08 pm

[re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: This post is very disturbing. I realize it’s a part of American history, but really, it’s too much.

AnnieGetYourFun January 6, 2010 at 4:12 pm

It’s only “hooray” if it was a painful, awful death.

gurukalehuru January 6, 2010 at 4:15 pm

Well, Rush Limbaugh lives, but I’ll consider this a consolation prize. [re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: Nah

ladymacbeth January 6, 2010 at 4:20 pm

we going to be doing one thin and one thin ONLY! killin natzis! ahm i clear??

yeah i spent pretty much all christmas weekend watching that.

Jim89048 January 6, 2010 at 4:24 pm

[re=490101]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: I’m closer to 3,000 miles than 4 blocks away, but this was my hope, too.

germansteel January 6, 2010 at 4:35 pm


A guy whose only “claim to fame” is that he killed someone is a nobody to me. No disrepect intended to the person he killed, or his family. He just doesn’t need to be recognized as anything but a pimple on the ass of Jim Dobson or Ralph Reed. He was in jail, and gonna die there eventually in any event. Limbaugh, on the other hand, was there for the taking by the lord, and he passed, and now we have to put up with him some more. That’s not justice or merciful by anyone’s definition.

Clancy_Pants January 6, 2010 at 4:36 pm

Let me know where they plant the douchebag.. I’d like to take a piss on his grave.

Ducksworthy January 6, 2010 at 4:42 pm

This reminds me. I need some theological advice on who’s death its OK to pray for
Here’s my list so far.

OK to Pray for Death for:

Shite. That’s all I got.

gradgrind January 6, 2010 at 4:45 pm

[re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: Uh, the guy he actually did shoot to TOO DEAD to make fun of this departed Nazi scumbag. Jim is performing a corporal work of mercy, slinging snark that in a just world would be slung by the injured party.

Now go take a bath in yer own barf ’til you’re cleaned up.

seriesoftubescleaner January 6, 2010 at 4:51 pm

[re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: You must have been only three blocks from the shooter.

Gopherit January 6, 2010 at 5:02 pm

[re=490127]gradgrind[/re]: I believe come here was mixing memes…..

zhubajie January 6, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Too bad he didn’t stand trial, make embarrassing speeches, to remind people what real Conservatism is.

alzronnie January 6, 2010 at 5:07 pm

I didn’t even know he was sick.

Mr Blifil January 6, 2010 at 5:15 pm

[re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: Next you’ll say it’s too soon to make fun of former WaPo ombudslady Debbie Howell looking the wrong way in traffic while on vacation in New Zealand and being struck to death by a vehicle moving at high speed not expecting a pedestrian to be taking a photograph in the middle of the fucking road.

Jesus you are some buzzkill.

MzNicky January 6, 2010 at 5:21 pm

[re=490070]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Ha! You laugh, but down here in East Jesus, Tennessee, odds are that’s the case.

Lionel Hutz Esq. January 6, 2010 at 5:21 pm

I am getting confused, did Tom Coburn ask us to pray for his death? Is there a web site somewhere that keeps track of whose death I am supposed to be praying for?

MzNicky January 6, 2010 at 5:31 pm

pipples, pipples! Clicky on the “four blocks away” linky before you walk a mile in come here a minute’s meta-snark.

Now. Don’t you feel silly, you annoying liberal insta-reactors?

With apols to Tom Lehrer:

Call him a Nazi, he won’t even frown
“Ha, Nazi Shmazi!” says James von Brunn

Neilist January 6, 2010 at 5:51 pm

I agree, Jim, this post was in “poor taste.”

Once again,there was none of the detail that makes a story like this interesting, e.g., type of gun used; caliber; loading; grouping of shots fired.

You know, the real “human interest” stuff.

ladymacbeth January 6, 2010 at 6:02 pm

[re=490155]Mr Blifil[/re]: opposite driving countries are a serious hazard.

i actually saw one colleague save another’s life about five years ago in england. it was too bad really b/c he was an asshole.

but i did see it.

Bury him with a DVD of Schindler’s List.

knobwurst January 6, 2010 at 7:36 pm

It’s a shame he didn’t live:
to be raped in a prison shower.

glamourdammerung January 6, 2010 at 7:43 pm

[re=490216]glamourdammerung[/re]: I am sorry. I meant to say “one less Libertarian with valid issues about Obama’s out of control spending”.

glamourdammerung January 6, 2010 at 7:43 pm

[re=490249]knobwurst[/re]: He could have discovered that “invisible hand” that his crowd always gushes about.

Bearbloke January 6, 2010 at 9:29 pm

[re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: Think again, mate!

I say FUCK THAT FUCKING NAZI FUCK – I hope his last weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds were FILLED with exactly the kind of pain, torture, terror, misery, persecution and self-loathing he tried to inflect on others who all have every right to laff their arses off at this shitbag’s long-delayed misery-shame-and-incontinence-laden lingering ignominious death!

The proper place for this human waste is a stinking dustbin, where his fellow rats can have a hearty meal. You can mourn alongside it until your misapplied respect for this scum has subsided.

Instead of a juvenile grave pee, how about a Jewish gay men’s chorus singing “Springtime for Hitler”? It’s more Holocaust-effective.

Mr Blifil January 6, 2010 at 11:54 pm

[re=490175]MzNicky[/re]: I suppose you could be right, much as I hate to admit it. The empirical evidence is still sketchy, but benefit of the doubt should have been given.

Pelagius January 7, 2010 at 1:26 am

[re=490095]Come here a minute[/re]: Haha! People don’t get it.

Bearbloke January 7, 2010 at 4:08 am

[re=490326]Pelagius[/re]: Oh, we get it – but we all still HATE Nazi-scum like him!

plowman January 7, 2010 at 7:42 am

A black guy in the White House was just too much for his old heart… But seriously, there’s a lot of venom here for one sad old fuck deluded by twisted halcyon visions of national socialism from the distance of seventy years. Lighten up Francis!

guangho January 7, 2010 at 12:21 pm

His grave would be a good place to open the colostomy bag recycling center
