The thread was titled "Obama is missing!' and was a link to a "Birther" piece. As you can imagine, most of the freepers agreed and whined about the upcoming "Marxist" coup set to take down America. So obviously, this is not good publicity for a site trying desperately to declare themselves "conservatives" as opposed to an official hate group.
The thread was published on Dec 2, 2008, and was pulled shortly after noon PST today (6/10/09.)
In addition to believing the debunked idea that Obama is a secret foreigner, James w von Brunn has also posted extensively in the internet (and in other writings) about his anti-semitism, racism, disgust of neo-cons (yes, he hates everyone,) and fear/hatred of the government and Zionists.
Despite his violent terrorist act, he apparently has little hope for White people:
AT the onset of the Marxist Revolution in Russia, Bolsheviks released prison,and insane-asylum inmates, who were immediately armed and set loose to murder 'Capitalists,'clergy and the middle-class population. The Bolsheviks (though most of them did not know it) were financed by International Bankers intent upon destroying the Russian Establishment. Soviet Bolshies were the forebearers of the JEWS,NEO-CONS, ZIONISTS who today are financing BOTH U.S.A. Prez candidates . There is a huge army of NEGRO INMATES whom OBAMA immediately will release to secure his Presidency.
White guys are pathetic creatures.
He is self-proclaimed WWII vet and Holocaust denier.
Per this message, left on a Yahoo message board, he's also a conspiracy theorist who believes that The Jews and/ or whoever composes "the Illuminatti" are the ones who "pulled off 9/11", and that Obama is working with them. In the same message, he predicts the death of the white race by "the Negro race." Oh, and the financial crisis was staged to ensure that Democrats won in November:
Whitey, kiss the blondes, redheads, and fair-skinned brunettes goodbye -- FOREVER !

wannabegeek, the member who posted the von Brunn article, was apparently concerned about Obama's eligibility.
Some right wing blogs are attempting to distance themselves from von Brunn, pointing out that he was also apparently a member of a Ron Paul supporter group. (UPDATE: that yahoo page seems to have been pulled now too) It's true that he seems to hate "the government" in general, along with the Blacks and Jews.
BREAKING NEWS: Via CNN, one of the guards shot, Stephen T Johns, has died.
*** Another update: Some people are now saying that MSNBC's Tameron Hall is reporting that von Brunn was actually a registered member of Free Republic. Has this been confirmed, or are they just referring to the article in question?
Again, the thread is back up: http://www.freerepublic.com/...
"MilspecRob" has added a new reply. I'm not sure if any of the replies have been edited from the original posted thread.
I'll continue to update this thread with info I find. If you find more of his posts and writings on the net, mark and save the website and the words if possible. His internet footprints are being scrubbed as we speak.
