Holocaust Museum shooter:A journalism major?

Why am I not surprised?

The shooter has been unofficially identified James W. von Brunn, of Annapolis, Md.
The gun-battle occurred in the museum lobby and started when the attacker began shooting with a “long gun,” said Sgt. David Schlosser.
Mr. von Brunn has a Web site holywesternempire.org that includes anti-Semitic and racial statements.
The site also states Mr. von Brunn has a journalism degree from a mid-Western university . . .

When I had breakfast with Obi’s Sister and her family last week, her son said he was considering a major in journalism. I cautioned him strongly against it. As a general rule, with few exceptions, journalism majors don’t amount to crap in the news business.

Major in journalism, and next thing you know, you could end up like Rev. Wright: “The JOOOOOZZZ!”

UPDATE: You could have won $20 by betting $10 against the initial house odds at The Jawa Report, which has a good rundown on Von Brunn’s kooky rantings.

UPDATE II: Bloggregating at NTCNews.com. Michelle Malkin has a good round-up, including this from Donald Douglas:

The spin on the left is that the suspect, James Von Brunn, is an agent of the GOP’s “Christian-fascist” base. The truth is, via Melissa Clouthier, this guy’s a deranged Holocaust denier. He represents no one on the conservative right – not me, nor any of those with whom I associate.”

Exactly. The Left gets to decide what qualifies as “right-wing,” and nothing any conservative says in contradiction can be taken seriously.

BTW, I guess I should link Melissa Clouthier, sort of as an afterthought. I hope she doesn’t take it personally or anything like that.

Obama’s pastor and ‘them Jews’

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright:

Asked if he had spoken to the President, Wright said: “Them Jews aren’t going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he’ll talk to me in five years when he’s a lame duck, or in eight years when he’s out of office. …
“They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. … I said from the beginning: He’s a politician; I’m a pastor. He’s got to do what politicians do.”

Biting my tongue here, trying to resist the temptation to say anything accurate about the Rev. Wright.

UPDATE: Memeorandum has a thread, linking blog commentary from Greg Hengler, Gateway Pundit, YID With LID, Hot Air, Weekly Standard, NewsBusters, Weasel Zippers and Moe Lane. Nothing like a steaming plate of Rev. Wright to stir things up in the blogosphere.

Obama: Rev. Wright ‘is a wonderful man’
