Colorado killer, James Holmes, ties to academia
The Virginian ^ | 7/20/2012 | Moneyrunner

Posted on 07/20/2012 12:44:04 PM PDT by moneyrunner

A young man who recently dropped out of the University of Colorado is the deranged killer of a dozen people in a movie theater in Colorado early this morning.

It is unclear at this point if he was motivated by President Obama's campaign rhetoric to hit back twice as hard, the poisonous atmosphere of ideological Leftism that influences university students, was a member of the Occupy movement or if he simply didn't like another Batman movie. One thing we know for sure, despite the desire of George Stephanopolis and Brain Ross of ABC News to blame the Tea Party, The killer, James Holmes, was not a member of that broad middle class movement. Instead, he seems to have been a perpetual student and part of ABC's audience.

I always wonder what prescribed meds these people were taking.

Hmmm, wonder if he sat in on any of Ward Churchill’s classes?

This did not happen because of the Batman movie. This was a terrorists hit and the movie drew a large crowd. The more people he killed the more media coverage. The killer had been planning this attack fort a long time.

Of course not. He had pink hair. The Joker has green. This is bogus.

His mother knew he was into something radical. She knew it was him right away and called police. My guess is she saw him get roped in by the "pay off my college loans" Occupy movement, and finally realized it wasn't going to happen for him. In fact, he dropped out of school, but still had all those loans to pay off.

Speaking of terrorist hits, Obama sure seemed to hop into action a lot faster on this one than Ft. Hood; those guys wait in hopes for “terrorism” that isn’t Islam linked something awful. “Workplace violence” no doubt.

Interesting. What political goal was this man pursuing?

I'm just trying to catch up from where I left off early this morning.

I said the same thing to my son this morning. I'll bet the shooter was white, because Oboma would have asked us to refrain from judgment until all the facts were in if the shooter had been Muslim or Black.

I think that may be the case.

Getting attention for the OWS crowd at all costs... maybe there will be more of this the closer we get to the ‘election’.

In any case, nothing justifies murder.

Clearly following Dear Leader’s advice.

obama is in a meeting with a bunch of people about this shooting. I suspect the topic is “How Can We Use This As A Way To Ban All Guns”.

obama is meeting with a bunch of folks. Probably discussing how they can use this against Romney and to get guns banned. Why else would the president be this much involved?

The Virginia Tech shooter back in 2007 seemed to have been brainwashed by the academic Left as well.

The shooter went to USC Riverside on merit based scholarships, not student loans.

I see why you are confused. Here's my corrected sentence:

“I’m just trying to be as cautious and careful in my analysis as the MSM.”

Regards.

I was trying to spoof a MSM report. I added the movie part for a little levity.

I watched a program on Glenn Beck a fedw months ago and he had sound bites of the OWS people calling for violent revolution. I think this is all part of that. In addition everytime there is one of these events Obama and the left start talkingg about gun control.

Obama will certainly have to drop his latest campaign strategy to link Romney with the villain Bane.
