No, you going to break that news?

I don’t remember any Islamic connection to that massacre like there was at OKC.

Did you operate the bulldozer that hid all the evidence soon after the OKC bombing?

Main Steam News (echoed by Strategerist): There has never been an Islamic terrorist connection to any Islamic terrorist attacks.

Ft. Hood?

That's definitely it! (/sarc)

It's a big part, my FRiend. Video games reward players for violent action. Rap music glorifies violent action. Depraved behavior is presented as normal, even admirable.

Most folks exposed to these things will not be adversely affected. But a small minority will. Think of the Germans in the 1930's who were exposed to relentless Nazi propaganda. Otherwise decent people got all twisted up the wrong way.

Now, I'm not arguing for blanket censorship, or anything like that. Perhaps in a free society we must accept certain things. But it's foolish to ignore what's part of the problem.

Yes, in this movie, the people of means and the authorities are definitely portrayed as the victims of a violent anarchist mob.

".... Whether we like it or not ..... Looks like gun control just became the main issue for this election. The MSM will make sure it is."

Really? Because even the MSM elites admit gun control, politically, is a complete loser.

"As speculation mounts about the motive behind the mass shooting, one private investigator has said that Holmes may have been part of Occupy Wall Street's most violent faction, Occupy Black Bloc."

I'm looking righter and righter, with each and every passing hour. ;)

OK - so now please provide evidence of the video games Holmes played & the music he listened to.

Or maybe he was made nuts via osmosis...the video games & music other people enjoy. Yeah, that's it!

Because of this, we have to work to identify the associations and motives of the shooter, ASAP.

Agree. What needs to be said loud and clear, immediately, is that this is NOT us. We can't let the left define us or create false associations.

To speculate that this was Islamic or Socialist or OWS-ist is not out of order based on the ACTIONS of those groups.

To speculate that this is associated with the Tea Party (as ABC did) is based upon leftist bigotry since there is no history of such actions.

What exactly proves your assertion in the article you link to? Because I see nothing.

He was 24 and black.

Nope. Graduated high school in 2000, means he's ~30.

"Really? Because even the MSM elites admit gun control, politically, is a complete loser."

...... Loser issue or not .... they will try to use this and anything else to divert attention away from the administrations dismal reputation on real issues. My guess is that this is the presidents campaign strategy ..... to divert attention away from important issues and subsequently "run out the clock" in these precious final months before the election. This will prevent any important dialogue from actually occurring on the real issues. The less his food stamp and welfare followers and undecided voters know about what is in BHO's brain the more likely the chance that they will deliver the votes necessary for BHO to maintain his job.

The MSM will gladly do whatever it can to help their dear leader out and procure another four years for the prez.

Speculation: Occupy Denver protestor, student loan debt, not keeping up with grades, blames others (”look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own”), goes nuts ...

He should come out with a statement like: “Pathetic try, Democrats. You try to make everything a political opportunity. And, yes, I include the press.”

The mother is still at home in San Diego the father has flown to Aurora.

Just listened to a phone interview with a father of a victim. His son had taken a trip with his girl friend to Denver, they are from San Antonio, Tx. The girl friend was shot in the head and died at the scene. The son tried to help her but there was nothing he could do to help. The son was shot in the backside with fragments of the bullet traveling through his body. He has been operated on and is in recovery. The son’s mother is already at the hospital.
The father will be there soon.

I think this father was in shock at the death of his son’s girlfriend and his son being shot and still bleeding after the operation and really did not realize he was giving a small chuckle every now and then. My heart went out to him and the situation he was in.

Nothing is clear... nothing ever is with this government... but time will out the truth... they couldn’t hide everything about Fort Polk... but they still are hiding evidence in that case. Sad is it not?

please provide evidence...

Who knows exactly what set this particular person off? Perhaps it had nothing to do with the society we live in. Time will tell.

My previous remarks were of a general nature, about a society as a whole. And I do have evidence of that. As I said before, consider Germany of the 1930's.

And consider another example: today's America. Many folks are getting the message that it's OK to let the government take care of you. Go ahead, apply for food stamps, apply for all sorts of assistance. At one time that was considered shameful, even when necessary.

So if you actually think that repetitive messages have no real effect on people, then I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

Now we get news that Obama is meeting with the head of the FBI and other muckety mucks about this shooting in Aurora. Why? There is nothing they can do now except to plan their next gun control project.

You do understand that EVERYTHING you are citing is just a constant circle of forum posts and now a British Tabloid all citing the SAME idiotic web page of a self-proclaimed “public investigator” who actually doesn’t provide ANY EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER that Holmes was in OWS himself?

Isn’t it convenient how the UN Small Arms treaty is about to be signed by scum Zero and Hillary the Hag on July 27?

These are the liberal fascist nuts who brought us Fast and Furious. They are monsters without conscience.

You wouldn't think we'd actually get OWS fetishists on a demonstrably conservative web site, would you? ;) And yet... and yet...:
