Media Already Linking Dark Knight Shooter To Tea Party

I'm just watching the tragic news of the shootings that took place at a screening of the new Batman movie, "Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora Colorado, during which a lone gunman shot and killed at least a dozen and wounded dozens more. ABC News is reporting that a man with the same name as the gunman taken into custody by police, James Holmes, is a member of a local Tea Party in Colorado. This is no accident, folks. Don't be fooled by media efforts directed by the Obama administration to strip you of your right to bear arms. The Omedia will be doing all it can to pin the blame for this shooting on the Tea Party and right wing extremists in an effort to rescue Obama's almost certain defeat in November as more and more Americans grow restless from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression and fear of a totalitarian dictatorship he is seeking to impose on the American people in a second term. Isn't it interesting that the villain in this new Hollywood-produced movie is named Bane as Obama seeks to demonize Romney's ties to Bain Capital in his re-election bid? A little word play mind game going on there, eh?

UPDATE: Breitbart asks if ABC News' Brian Ross got the wrong James Holmes here in its attempt to link the shooter to the Tea Party. Alex Jones predicted the propaganda value of this movie to the New World Order before last night's shooting.

UPDATE II: Yep, ABC News fingered the wrong guy. The Hispanic Tea Party member with the same name is not the shooter. The network is now apologizing for their mistake.

Is the medi-uh claiming the two men are one and the same?

ABC News' Brian Ross found the same link I found doing a google search. He stated live on the air the connection without substantiating whether it was indeed the same person.

Truth Hurts, I had to laugh when I read the AP story saying government sources said there was no terrorist link. Of course, some within the government have been doing all they can to link the Tea Party movement to domestic terrorist organizations despite the lack of any credible evidence that such a link exists. The Occupy Wall Street movement, well, the same can't be said for it.

The All Barack Channel (ABC) has an apology & retraction:

I am surprised how a site can be so analytical and thoughtful on many things (in particular the cavalier way that politicians of both parties can treat public monies as toys to manipulate; since Indiana and Indianapolis now are GOP terrain, this means usually the Ballard or Daniels administrations, but a lot of the rot is very bipartisan) can rise up in hysteria when a totally unexpected event happens. All this was before President Obama made his comment, and now that they are out, I can't see anything objectionable. Given how much demonizing there has been about his birth certificate, his grades in school, his religion, etc., and how they continue to get display [it helps to have your own `news' network], it seems that any efforts to tie the Tea Party to terrorism are far less prominent [and I had never seen any serious source raise this possibility].

If there were ever a time for reflection, this is it. You have a very interesting blog, but I'm disappointed in this post.

BTW - this may not even be the worst thing ABC has done today. Before Dark Knight Rises they had a preview for a new ABC series titled Last Resort, which is about - I kid you not - a rogue US nuclear submarine. It gets worse from there.

The presstitutes at ABC literally had to google "James Holmes + Tea Party" to find that listing.

I listened to a little Glen Beck this morning and they googled "Sex crime + Brian Ross" and came up with someone who they acknowledged they could not confirm was the same Brian Ross from ABC news.

I heard that ABC literally broke into the broadcast with "breaking news" that they found a tea party member by the name of James Holmes in Aurora.

By the way, illegal gun runner/U.S. attorney general Eric Holder is responsible for more mass murder than James Holmes.

And the pharmaceutical industry is guilty of even more than that. By some counts Big Pharma is killing 100,000 to 250,000 Americans a year with their poisons.

Gary,

I just saw the movie. There's no Bane-Bain connection. Bane has been a major villain of Batman since the early 1990's when he broke Batman's back. In the movie, the villain Bane is still the hulking genius, but is also a communist. There is no pro-leftist message in Dark Knight Rises.

I'd love to know where the connections are coming from.
1) First Rush is telling everyone that there is some sort of intentional connection between a character named Bane and some implied slam against the equity firm Bain. Bane was the villain who broke Batman in a 1993 story line, long before Bain capital was in the news. Was Rush going out of his way to figure out a democratic strategy?
2) the NYC police commissioner claiming that the gunman identified himself as the joker, where I have not seen anyone from the Aurora police or victims who has been quoted as hearing this.
3) the flimsy connection with a scene in Miller's graphic novel "Batman:the dark knight returns" where an insane gunman shoots people (3) in a movie theater. Has it occurred to any of these talking heads that people have gotten shoot in movie theatres before?
4) Biggest assumption is that life takes its cues from fiction writers, instead of the other way around; that fiction writers take their cues from life.
5) the number of other connections being made by the press in trying to say that the gunman was inspired by either the movie or the batman novels. None of this is any more than wild speculation.

Truth is stranger than fiction. There are a thousand storied in the naked city and so forth.
