    Do you think we will even make it through the day without one of the clowns at MSNBC, or else one of the left wing politicians figuring out a way to blame this on the right?

    I say we dont even make it until market close before the ridiculous claims about how right wing rhetoric caused this begin.....

    It would seem that Max is the first person on ET to have politicized this tragedy.

    Defensive this morning, are we?

  4. If the shooter was dressed as the Bane character, then yes.

    New Record for the left...... I thought theyd managed to make it till noon atleast..... And they manage to get the wrong James Holmes too....... Sleazy ass holes.....

    On Good Morning America, ABC News' Brian Ross and George Stephanolpoulos suggested that the Tea Party might be connected to the mass shootings early this morning in an Aurora, CO theater during a screening of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The mainstream media attempted to blame the Tea Party for the Tuscon shootings in January 2011, shortly after Republicans swept the midterm elections. Now, in the critical 2012 elections, the mainstream media seems poised to do the same--and ABC News has led the way.

    Here is the exchange between ABC News chief investigator Brian Ross and host George Stephanopoulos about apparent suspect James Holmes:

    Stephanolpoulos: I'm going to go to Brian Ross. You've been investigating the background of Jim Holmes here. You found something that might be significant.
    Ross: There's a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last year. Now, we don't know if this is the same Jim Holmes. But it's Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado.
    Stephanolpoulos: Okay, we'll keep looking at that. Brian Ross, thanks very much.

    How interesting that Ross and ABC News should think to look to the Tea Party website first--and to broadcast politically volatile information without verifying if that "Jim Holmes" is the same as the suspect.

    The "Jim Holmes" page on the Colorado Tea Party website is advertising an event with Middle East commentator Brigitte Gabriel next Thursday, July 26--hardly the behavior of a man who expected to be committing a deadly crime on July 20 for which he would certainly be apprehended and might not survive.

    Look for more scapegoating from the mainstream media and the Democrats in the hours and days to follow.

    UPDATE: The James Holmes who was arrested at the Aurora theater was 24 years old and seems to be from Denver, CO. The James Homes on the Tea Party website from Aurora, CO seems to match a James Homes who is in his 50's and does not match the profile of the suspect. More proof and Ross, Stephanolpoulos and ABC News rushed to blame the Tea Party without confirmation that the suspect is also the Tea Party member.
  6. What a bunch of desperate low life fuck heads.
  7. Seems Max just served you a plate of fucking crow to swallow.

    Hardly. Max beat ABC and was far more political besides. ABC mentioned that there was a noted person with the same name in the general vicinity. Premature? Yes. But Max was off and running from the get-go.

    Meanwhile, depending on the perp's race, one of your cohorts may post a mug shot in due course.
  9. Disgusted, but not surprised that the MSM would think of politics first. Honestly, when I read about this my thought was the leftist media is probably frothing at the mouth in eager anticipation of an all day political circle jerk surrounding this story.

    Yes, let's focus on this outrage rather than the crime itself. First things first.
