67 Years later, the hatred born of the Holocaust and its continued denial by those who hate Jews claimed another innocent victim who wanted nothing more than to live a happy productive life. A Victim a generation and a continent removed from the Wansee horror of the Final Solution.
James Von Brunn, a known Holocaust Denier and white supremacist, who claims that “The Diary Of Anne Frank” is a hoax and two days before what would have been her 80th birthday, walked into the National Holocaust Museum and opened fire, killing a 39 year old African-American security guard. Van Brunn himself was seriously wounded in the shootout.
Von Brunn is the author of an online manifesto entitled “Kill the Best Gentiles: “A hard-hitting exposé of the JEW CONSPIRACY to destroy the White gene-pool.”
Chapter 6 of the book is entitled is entitled “The Holocaust Hoax” Von Brunn wrote “Hitler‘s worst mistake” was that “he didn’t gas the Jews.” Needless to say this was a Holocaust Denier who hated Jews as well as African Americans and expressed that hate with devastating violence.
Within hours of the Holocaust Museum shooting, the Facebook Holocaust Denial Group “Holohoax” had posted a graphic mocking the shooting and its victim.(posted above) The graphic shows individuals neck shackled and handcuffed walking past the Holocaust Museum sign.
I can not figure out what legitimate historical point is being debated with this graphic. Perhaps Mark Zuckerberg is more of a Holocaust historian than I am and can enlighten me.
Facebook representative also Barry Schnitt recently” stated that the mere fact of “denying the Holocaust” did not constitute hate speech under Facebook TOS.
According to Facebook guidelines, it appears that it only qualifies as hate speech when you Deny The Holocaust and put a bullet in someone to further advance your argument.
James Von Brunn has spoken loud and clear that the “mere fact” of Denying The Holocaust is in fact hate speech. He has spoken with hatred, violence and death.
It is time for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to once and for all close down his Facebook recruiting ground for the “James Von Brunns In Training” of the world. They are training unchecked in the giant social media universe of Facebook. It is time to send the message that this hatred and violence being spawned on Facebook will no longer be tolerated.
Are you listening Mark? Do you get it yet? Do you get that you are not Thomas Jefferson or one of the other founding fathers protecting the “idea of free speech” for the masses. You are the CEO of a for profit company that whether you intended it or not is shaping the young minds of the country. Whether you like it or not, by providing unrestricted access to these masses you took on a moral and corporate social responsibility not to let the “James Von Brunns In Training” fester and grow in your back yard.
Enough is Enough.
