NY Daily News: 11 June 2009: When his ex-wife met him in the mid-1960s, James von Brunn was a wine swiller consumed by hatred. "[It] ate him alive like a cancer," said the 69-year-old woman, who did not want her name used. "It's all he would talk about. When I questioned him, he would get angry and abusive. He would talk about what the world would become in 20 or 30 years, that most of the country would be governed by black governors and that the Jewish people owned the media."
Listen, von Brunn’s war was no more absurd or pointless than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The fear and hatred that drove von Brunn is the same as that which fuels America’s more popularly supported wars. The fear and hatred of the other. Same cancer, different symptom. He had his negro and Jewish bogeymen, while your average American right winger has his muslim bogeymen.
The Michael Savage/Glenn Beck types push the same type of fear:
What will happen to our great country in 20 or 30 years if we don’t confront islamofacism now? they tremble.
Von Brunn is laughed at, considered a *lunatick,* while the *war on terror* crowd are considered perfectly rational. Huh?!?!
Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
