MSNBC Ties Colorado Shooting to Watergate (I am not making this up)
MSNBC (live) | 7/20/12

Posted on 07/20/2012 8:57:28 AM PDT by pabianice

Per "Jansing & Company:"

"Shooter bought ticket, went out through fire door, taped door lock open like they did in Watergate..."

"Is there something far more sinister going on here than just the shooting...?"

Clint Van Zandt: "We have to ask: is this shooting tied to the one in Columbine? Unfortunately, we are getting far too many mass shootings to be able to tie them all together..."


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: aurorashooting; jamesholmes; vanity; watergate
I can't wait for the next "connection" they make for the shooting.

He may have watched the movie at an earlier showing.

Now, about keeping doors open, rocks are plentiful! They work well. Everybody's done that!

These people are like scared little children hearing a ghost story for the first time. They have not reached the emotional maturity of adulthood. They do not belong on the public airwaves in any serious capacity. They need a keeper.

Taped the door open like WATERGATE?!?! Seriously?

So Watergate and this movie theater are the ONLY times in history where a criminal has taped open a door they planned to use later???

What kinds of DRUGS is Jansing taking? Honestly.

When you see everything through the prism of politics, you see connections that don't exist.
Keep in mind that the Batman's super villain in this movie is named "Bain". I'm sure the massacre will be tied to Romney somehow.

They all went nuts over at NBC when Tim Russert died, sad, they don’t even conceal their hatred for this country and Republicans anymore. Comcast made it worse, I used to work for them, let’s just say the crescent moon is a fitting symbol to cover their fascist facade! Oh, and the beliefs of their broadcasters is symbolic of their executives to a tee!

Well ..okay..let’s go there.

Washington Post more or less headed up Operation Mockingbird for the CIA.

Bob Woodward had been Naval Intelligence with no experience gets on at the Washington post and the next year gets teamed with Bernstein.

So, yeah, if they want to go there....look behind the smoke and mirrors.

The movie shooting was likely just a nut.

but let the conspiracy theories begin ;-0

Let me make a connection. This perp is apparently a white person who killed about 13 people and wounded 50 others. Every weekend in Chicago gangbangers, rappers kill about 50 people....3 or 4 times the number killed in Aurora. No connections are made to the people who kill the children of Chicago. But, there will not be left one stone unturned in the Colorado shooting. But, because the past chief of staff of Obama is mayor and Obama is from Chicago, that juxtaposition will not be reported.

It is a tragedy of monumental purportions regarding the shooting in Aurora. It seems not reportable that 4 times this many people are killed in Chicago every weekend.

Well, she may not be on drugs, but she is liberal, so perhaps that has the same effect on the mind???

Remember how they tried to make Tucson into Obama’s “Oklahoma City moment”?? Maybe they will try to do the same with this senseless tragedy.

If they are going to go back in history 40 years to make a connection to Watergate, because of some tape on a door, they might as well go back to 1865. Since this was done in a theater, just like Lincoln’s assassination, it is obviously the work of a white Southern racist try to reestablish the Confederacy.

And why is the media silent about gang violence in Chicago and other cities? Is it because the media doesn’t want to be accused of racism if they highlight such crimes?

Have you noticed that almost all of the flash mob incidents involve black youth, yet the media never mention race or ethnicity of such people. If they report the incidents at all. Anecdotal evidence is that the media really downplay the flash mob shoplifters and their mayhem.

The media will try to make some political statement about this.

Not per one of the witnesses. He said there was a knocking on the EXIT door and someone opened the door to let him in.

Why would he have to knock on the door, if he had taped the door lock?

[I would believe the on-scene witness more than I would an MSNBC/NBCNews.com commentator.]

Yeah it was ugly.

He’s cancelled his speech today in Winter Park (FL) and gone back to D.C. He will be milking this one for ALL it’s worth.

Still trying to wrap my mind around Watergate/Colorado movie theater association.

Someone had to think of that- someone in research at NBC found that tidbit of info and gave it to Jansing. It’s a hell of a stretch.

IIRC, this was the FIRST showing, premier right after midnight, so it was sure to be crowded after all the hype.

He taped the door catch so he could make a fast getaway apparently........

What will MSNBC say if this weapon turns out to be one from Fast and Furious?

Looking for connections to tie this shooting to Columbine?

Don't look to "Watergate" ("Tea-party" or anything on the right) look to "Hollywood" and Hollywood inspired video game?

Klebold & Harris are seen entering Columbine HS in the last photo:

And here's another copycat school attack that was foiled:

"Boys planned Matrix-inspired massacre"

Not that all or most kids will be so insired - BUT that those that are so, are not being inspired by the values of the enemies of the Left but overwhelmingly by the values of the Left and their friends.

The police were of NO HELP in this situation, and the gunman surrendered after he did what he wanted.

The ONLY thing that could have stopped this would have been armed citizens.

Put that in your pipe, Herr Bloomberg.

Hollywood put the idea of shooting up people in a theatre in the movie preview 'Ganster Squad' that aired only minutes before the shooting at the Aurora...watch at 2:02 minute mark here Ooops, Seems they removed it
