As a blog on Daily Kos notes, the Right is once again Swift Boating the truth ... The problem for the Right is as usual, not one shard of credible evidence to back up their slander and innuendo. ... Mr. Warner should stick to being hired to bust out those Rich Republicans retired in Florida who are engaged in coveting thy neighbors wife or maybe considering their guilty homophobia all those Righties out there really secretly covet they neighbors husband. His story about Holmes OWS involvement is just Right Wing wishful thinking and belongs right up there with that Texas sized moron Rep. Louie Gomert (R-TX) and his stupid statement didn't someone have a concealed weapon they could have shot him with.

But the left is already in attack mode on the story.
...that's all we know.
So thanks to the Leftists for rediscovering the concept of objective truth. All truth is NOT relative anymore.
Did he have a Romney sticker on his car, or is this bullshit?
This is either Holmes or it isn't.
If Obama had married a tall husky white gal, their son would look just like that.....
“As a blog on Daily Kos notes, the Right is once again Swift Boating the truth in an attempt to use a horrible event for partisan political gain, when they claim as fact that the Aurora,”
ah yes- this from the same turds who could not get to their computers fast enough and type out Sarah Palin was responsible for the shooting of Giffords....this crap almost writes itself..
Your opinion on the YouTube video?
Good to see the nutbars at Kos on defense for a change.
>>So thanks to the Leftists for rediscovering the concept of objective truth. All truth is NOT relative anymore.
They’ll forgot all about it as soon as they can find evidence that he attended church once in his life or said one kind word about Reagan or complained that Obama isn’t doing enough to help the poor. Then, he’ll be a white, christian, tea-bagger again and all truth will be relative.
Actually, so far it is circumstantial evidence. But it looks extremely likely.
I haven’t passed this on to my liberal friends, because it hasn’t been absolutely proven. But I’d say the odds in favor look like about 95%.
It certainly is not a right-wing lie, as these left-wing liars claims.
The police and/or the press could soon confirm or disprove this link, but you won’t see them rushing to do so, as they would if it was a link to a “militia” or to some conservative organization.
NY is not San Diego.
There’s another possible screenshot from the video (Of two people holding a banner) and one of the two looks even more like James Holmes than this photo does.
Distortions and “wishful thinking” are dangerous and wrong whenever they pass for “news”. The left does it much of the time but that doesn’t give the right justification for joining the lying. There are moral absolutes and truthfulness is one of them.
But it ain't so unless the MSM say it's so—and they won't if it hurts the Naked Marxist.
Diane Sawyer did say that this was the worst mass murder in American history, with 71 victims. That’s why Ross and Steph rushed the TEA Party angle out, they knew this was coming.
No worries, Soros will buy him a good lawyer who will spring him on insanity defense.
“His story about Holmes OWS involvement is just Right Wing wishful thinking and belongs right up there with that Texas sized moron Rep. Louie Gomert (R-TX) and his stupid statement didn’t someone have a concealed weapon they could have shot him with.”
If a off duty police officer had a concealed weapon and shot him that would be still stupid? If people are trained to use a firearm. (granted not as trained as officers) Still the same lead slamming through the brain stem stops the behavior. What does it matter how the bullet reaches the brainstem.?
Someone on another thread pointed out that those are NYPD officers carrying the protester, not San Diego police officers.
We’ll probably find him in a LOT of OWS photos, they always miss a few during the scrub.
When he shot up the Aurora movie house, he was dressed as a black bloc member dresses. The new batman movie had an OWS type guy as the villian and was dressed in black. The probably mentally unstable Holmes may have been really pissed off at the movie and wanted revenge: explanation here.
This is certainly circumstantial, but it is more plausible than Brian Ross's view that a James Holmes of the Tea Party -- who was not the James Holmes who was the shooter -- performed the mass murder.
I’m gonna have to take your word on that.
I don't see any yellow in this photo and we can see both arms from one officer or another.
But Mr. McCown—the fact remains that OWS is not restrained by any moral code. So whether or not Holmes is in fact associated with OWS is irrelevant to the fact that his actions flow logically from the philosophy of OWS.
And I realize that most OWS sympathizers would not like this to be the case, but their desire doesn’t change that it is factually true.
Hadn't heard that before.
Enough to worry DailyKos, not enough to convince a jury.
I’m going to put on my liberal thinking cap before I comment on this article... All you have to do is look at this twink to know that he is connected to the Occupy Wall Street psychos.
I’m reading he purchased ammo on the internet. I’d think he’d have to have a credit card for that.
Sorry Timmy. The gun smoke hadn't even dissipated yesterday before the commie turds in the "media" on your side were saying Holmes was a member of the TEA Party. Wake up boy!!! Ya gotta learn how to pay attention and focus.
Are you expecting his lawyer to say something like ‘Your Honor and members of the jury, my client may or may not be guilty of the worse mass murder in US history but these fetid attempts to tie him to OWS are simply beyond the pale.’
Nope. It's the jury of public opinion that I was referring to. Time will tell. Odds are good for an OWS connection but the evidence is still very circumstantial at best.
The San Diego vs. New York police uniform differences is worth noting. An example of still weak evidence for OWS connection.
Don’t you need a credit card to establish a paypal account? I know I needed one.
McLuhan got it backwards. The message is the medium by which the system knows reality.
worst mass murderer, Ms Sawyer? i think that belongs to
a school janitor in Minn. or close by ——cut all his trees down and blew up the school
Probably Mom and Dads card. That is probably why she said "You got the right person". The bill came to them.
So why did Holmes’ grades go down last spring, causing him to drop out of graduate school? What was he doing?
Would it occur to any of these media elite to think before they speak?
There are a few on the right that seem to seek to make us as bad as the left when it comes to conspiracy theories and rampant speculation.
Most conservatives wait for evidence before they make accusations, are are quite open to reason.
But there’s always a vocal minority who think making claims without evidence is a winning strategy.
Student loans most likely.
Deferred payback and 1/3th the interest rate of consumer credit cards
I can see that. In fact I fully expect this guy was a 'failure to launch' momma's boy.
If you are correct and these suspicious purchases were made some time ago, the parents are complicit IMO.
Is your opinion that the evidence I have have posted at RadioFreeNJ could not possible have any probity with any person whatsoever? Or are you saying that conservatives should wait for all the evidence to be in before promoting a legitimate inference, while the other side poisons other's perception of you?
Your post has Occupy San Diego
Posters have said that they are not San Diego police uniforms
