Holocaust Museum Shooter a 9/11 'Truther' Fitting a Left-Wing Extremist Profile

News outlets are doing their best job to try to connect the Holocaust Museum shooting and Tiller shooting incidents as cases of "right-wing extremism."

We see little from the media about the politically motivated shooting of a U.S. soldier in Arkansas by a Muslim extremist.

In any case, the man accused of killing a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. on June 10, James W. von Brunn, left a trail of unhinged writings around the internet, not unlike the rantings you can find on any liberal blog like Daily Kos or The Huffington Post.

For example, von Brunn unleashed his hatred of both Presidents Bush and other "neo-conservatives" in online essays.

A cursory glance at "white supremacist" writings reveals a hatred of, say, big corporations that is virtually indistinguishable from that of anti-globalization activists.

Von Brunn's advocacy of 9/11 conspiracy theories also gives him an additional commonality with individuals on the far-left.

FBI agents visited the offices of the conservative Weekly Standard magazine yesterday after the shooting and told employees they'd found the magazine's address with the gunman who may have also targeted the publication for violence.

Too, this shooting occurred shortly after President Obama's former mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, blamed "the Jews" for his lack of access to his former parishioner.

While I am loathe to commit an egregious excersize in cosmic sociology, it is interesting to point out facts that hang in the balance.

Simply put, perhaps von Brunn is nothing more than one of the black-helicopter fearing mad-hatters so common in a society populated by 300 million people.
