Click here to read the writings of white supremacist shooter James Von Brunn on Free Republic, along with right-wing readers’ positive reaction to his writings. This is a mirror of the Google Cache of von Brunn’s writings, posted here for historical reference in light of Free Republic’s decision to taken the post down. Here’s what Free Republic replaced Von Brunn’s postings with as the news was coming out today that Von Brunn had shot multiple people at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC:
Free Republic is trying to shove von Brunn’s writings down the memory hole, but I don’t believe the Internet will oblige. Tip of the hat to Think Progress for noting the erased existence of von Brunn’s writings on Free Republic.
Von Brunn’s writings represent a typical reaction to cognitive dissonance between the belief that no black man could be president and the clear existence of Barack Obama as President of the United States. The psychological-rhetorical resolution James W. Von Brunn arrived at, along with thousands of other white supremacists: clearly, Barack Obama cannot be the real president! Everything else, including the wildest of fabrications, follows.
Fellow Free Republic readers (or “freepers,” as they’re known) enthusiastically ditto-headed James Von Brunn’s writings; a sampler from the mirror of his Obama Birth Certificate conspiracy writings:
“Just about everyone in the world ‘gets it’ except for our media and the sheep who voted for him.”
Seeing More Clearly Now:
“Shame on half the American public for allowing themselves to have their morality turned upside down and for allowing themselves to be dumbed down so badly. The half that can still think logically have a job ahead of them.”
“Those who voted for him, for the most part, were playing ‘affirmative action’ to promote a black guy to the presidency, reagrdless of eligibility or qualification. And the fifth column enemedia swept the little Chicago squirrel along to get their dream Marxist into office. Bastards”
YOU A RASIST!
“Excellent summary of the phantom oreo, who is about to become our president.”
Eye of Unk:
“Are we almost to the shooting stage yet?
Seriously even the dummies are starting to attack each other, I am prepared to hear of riots starting during the inauguration of disenchanted Obama followers, they are sure getting their wealth spread around, almost every single corporation now has its hand out for cash, like the movie of Steve Martin, the Jerk, after all he had and what he had to pay back it was $1 each.
Thats your check America, one dollar, maybe a small town can pitch it all together and buy a ring like Michelle’s!”
Not all of these people are shooters. But they’re all showing the same serious cognitive strain that results when you refuse to abandon your belief that a black man, even an “oreo,” cannot be president.
Update: Free Republic, undoubtedly seeing the public relations disaster in trying to hide the traces of writings there by James von Brunn, has restored the page featuring his writings. I’m maintaining the mirror, because who knows what Free Republic will decide to do next?
