Von Brunn's Anti-Semitic Conspiracies: from 9/11 to Google

By David Corn | Thu June 11, 2009 9:55 AM PST

James von Brunn, the white supremacist arrested for the murder of a security guard at the Holocaust Museum, held numerous extremist views, as has been widely reported.

He maintained that 9/11 was the product of a Jewish conspiracy. In one posting, he claimed that only one Jewish person was killed at the World Trade Center--even though the "WTC was the nexus for international Jew trade, located in the largest Jew city in the world." He added, "It is revealing that 3 Jews laughing with glee, pointing at the exploding WTC, were caught by a neighbor on video-tape."

Like many anti-Semitics, von Brunn believed Jews controlled the world financial system, and he used the traditional data points and rhetoric of such hate-mongers: "From this cess-pool of Jews and traitors came the FTAA which in 1994, with Congressional blessings, changed its name to WTO (World Trade Organization)."

But von Brunn also tracked updates on the global financial Jewish conspiracy. In 2003, von Brunn posted on Stormfront.org, a site of "white pride," information about Google that he had found at the website of Holocaust denier David Irving. The basic charge: Google was founded, funded and controlled by Jews. And you know what that means.

Grab your hats and chairs, brothers and sisters, this parade of YELLOW JOURNALISM is just getting started.

I encourage everyone to let Mr. Corn and Mother Jones know just what we think of them (in a very civil manner, of course).

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Your comments to Corn's smear-job are devastating.

Thoughtful and well-considered. Superb response.

Thank you,

I have to put the anger generated by this outrageous smear campaign to good use. The comments following mine weaved together a rather thorough refutation of his short, but very odious hit piece.

I hope that everyone who reads this will take the time to leave a comment at Mother Jones and bury Mr. Corn with our cumulative response.

Be well.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Public Continuously Preoccupied By Media Generated Emotion

The public imagination is so preoccupied with the emotions generated by the media and its continuous focus on culture.

Male v. Female, citizen v. non-citizen, left v. right, gay v. straight, black v. white.

Toxic theater designed to keep the masses attention hopelessly distracted from real issues?

"The distracted masses"

as one of my international relations professors called us over 20 years ago.

Keep the people distracted and divided and they are effectively and cost efficiently rendered powerless and thus are relatively easy to control.

I think that two of the main requirements of the American empire project are to destroy organized labor and the American middle class in order to pave the way for the long-dreamed for the global, high-tech neo-feudalism these sociopaths want to create.

The failed Nazi experiment made them realize just how important total control of the public mindspace was and why we have seen the complete takeover of the msm and the decades long process of brainwashing and indoctrination needed to accomplish their pathological goals.

It is time for humanity to unite, while embracing its diversity, cast off these age old mental and social constructs, seize control of our planet and our collective destiny on it, and begin a golden age of peace and sustainable prosperity.

I think more and more people are beginning to realize the necessity of doing this every day.

Love is a verb, brothers and sisters, let's get busier!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

I love your comments LeftWright

What you say is so true. We MUST stay united no matter what. We all have different opinions but we have a common cause that we can all agree on. They want to divide us. That is the only way they can win. United we will win. This is so important.

Thank you, 9-11 Joe

We all have far more in common with each other than the sometimes rather silly things that get used as "wedge" issues to keep us fighting with each other.

I don't have to agree 100% with someone to work with them, nor do I expect everyone to agree 100% with me on everything (what a boring Matrix-like world that would be).

An honest commitment to a non-violent approach to problem solving is all I look for when deciding who to work with, a diversity of opinion and experience creates a much more creative, interesting and effective process, imo.

I hope that you and yours are well.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Right-on again LeftWright

Love is the only answer. We must even love our opposition. Not an easy thing to do but we MUST to be successful. I think honest prayer is our best tool.

Corn wrote about 9/11 back in 2006

I think at this point Corn, like many journalists, is just posturing defensively to protect his reputation. This article is so lacking substance, one wonders why it was even written.

Agreed, simuvac

Now that the serfs have served their severance papers with the feudal lords (Mr. Biden being given the nanothermite paper by WAC LA) and the oppressed masses are making all kinds of noises throughout the kingdom, the various court jesters have been kicked by their kings to heckle and try to bully the gathering masses back into obedience.

We are approaching the tipping point, brothers and sisters, let's keep our eyes on the prize and get even busier!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

I'm not saying two wrongs make a right...

...but I must say: Funny how when I look at the politics/current affairs shelf at Barnes & Borders, my eye is bombarded with books about "radical islam," and "jihad against the west" and "islamic terrorism" and the "muslim threat against freedom and democracy."

And most people, when seeing the shelf, don't think: "What a racist bookstore! Look at all this anti-Arab propaganda masquerading as scholarship!"

Nope, the preponderance of such books on the shelf likely confirms what they already know: that there IS an "Islamic threat" against the west. The proof is what we all saw on 9/11.

But oh, how one MUST be an anti-Semite to suggest a "radical Jewish Conspiracy!" or that key people who happen to be Jews have done some very evil things. Because, you see, Jews can never be bad guys! Jews can only ever be victims! They've been kicked and beaten for 4,000 years no matter where they go! And now those damn AAA-rabs don't want them to even have their own land, the very land promised to them in Genesis and Exodus. Oh, oh, oh, those poor, precious, Jews!

Through decades of playing soccer

I have made many Arab/Muslim friends, especially Iranians, Lebanese and Palestinians, and this blatant but seemingly "acceptable" racism has always confounded and infuriated me.

The present period of genocide against various Arab/Muslim groups seems to be taking place with virtually no opposition in the western countries, certainly not in the U.S., and one has to wonder why this is?

The American mass media will have much to answer for in the history books of the near future, assuming we are successful in restoring the rule of law and creating a truly open and democratic republic.

On my frequent forays into book stores, especially Borders, I always make sure to place the 9/11 truth titles in prominent places and put deception dollars in the truly odious "war on terror" propaganda tomes (and/or face them backwards).

Zionism is the enemy of all humankind, especially the Jewish people of true faith.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

The compromised or Cointel journalists are now

telling us who they are, quite directly.

As if we didn't know.

And it's clear that they are throwing everything they can think of at 9/11 Truth, no matter how ridiculous it is. Can you spell "d-e-s-p-e-r-a-t-i-o-n"?

Twenty comments right now, all disputing Corn

There are twenty comments at the time of posting, all taking Corn to task. Nearly all are intelligently argued. I have seen this pattern a number of times recently. Does this denote a sea change, or are we collectively just getting better at responding to hit pieces?

21 comments so far- all taking exception to Corn

LeftWright's was great, and this was short and priceless:

"David Corn suddenly indistinguishable from Glenn Beck

wow, I never expected to be able to lump David Corn and Glenn Beck into the same catagory.


my comment:

Corn's rep as a leftgatekeeper has long been established:

And smearing the 9/11 Truth Movement as "anti-semitic" has also long been a popular tactic with media shills to distract from the fact that there's never been a proper investigation of those who took an Oath to defend the Constitution- Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Mueller, Tenet, Wolfowitz, Myers, Eberhart, Arnold, etc.- and "failed" to defend the nation- despite numerous warnings about planes as weapons and al qaeda plotting- and lying about it afterward- and then exploiting 9/11 to suppress dissent, launch invasions of nations with geo-strategic resouces, justify massive increases in military spending and the creation of a domestic police state- just like PNAC wanted.

So this short blog's focus on Von Brunn's blaming 9/11 on Jews is pretty suspect, and serves to further discredit Corn, who I stopped reading a long time ago, given that his POV so often supports the corporate fascist Establishment agenda.

Anyone looking to understand the events of 9/11 and see whether a new investigation is warranted should check out this timeline based entirely on government reports, official statements and mainstream media:
