Exclusive: Contra ABC News, Dark Knight Shooting Suspect James Holmes Could Be Registered Democrat
Big Government ^ | July 20, 2012 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 07/20/2012 9:39:34 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

James Holmes, the suspect arrested in connection with the mass shootings at a screening of the new Batman movie early this morning in Aurora, CO, could be a registered Democrat, according to documents obtained by Breitbart News. Earlier, ABC News' Brian Ross and George Stephanopoulos speculated on Good Morning America that Holmes was a Tea Party member, based solely on a name appearing on a Tea Party website.

The James Holmes for whom Breitbart News has obtained documentation is 25 years old (the suspect has been reported as 24 years old). He has links to addresses in both Colorado and San Diego, where his mother has been reported to be from, according to news reports. He was issued a traffic citation in 2011--his sole run-in with the law. The same is true for the suspect arrested in connection with the shootings, according to reports. Update: Fox News reports that the suspect has a California-issued social security number, as does the man in the documents obtained by Breitbart News--a significant correlation, assuming the sources are independent.

It won’t matter to the media and the left.

They will blame the Tea Party.....NO MATTER WHAT.

It’s already started:

Good for Breitbart to immediately burst the delusional speculation from the Communist media.

I'm going to speculate that the shooter was a volunteer on the Obama 2012 election effort. Pure speculation, mind you, but it does establish a potential link directly to Obama.

Not just a registered Democrat, but now a lot of sites are also finding he is tied to OWS and the ultra violant BLACK BLOC anarchist faction.

Looking like there is no possible way to hang this on the Tea Party, Limbaugh, Republicans, Conservatives or even Romney for that matter.

Not that the media won’t try — they will probably use the kids supposed mental illness and say that RUSH and the TEA PARTY pushed this lovable little protestor over the edge with their evil right wing rhetoric (innoncent 12 yr old pictures soon to be incoming.)

Indeed he should. Shoot, I'd contribute to his legal fund if he sets one up for this. It's way past time to take the gloves off with the drivebys.

Not to jump to any conclusions, but I second your speculation the shooter is a volunteer on the 0bama 2012 Forward election effort.

Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.

The sad fact is, whatever the initial narrative is, is the one that winds up sticking, even if it is debunked later on.

You're right... but if this turns out to be true, it should be THE retort to every false piece of blather about Holmes having connections to the Tea Party. When contending with the left, only the firehose of truth will put out their lies. The leftards' blaming of Sarah Palin for the Giffords shooting was despicable. The enemy can't be allowed to slide by uncontested.

ABC Reporting that he could be a tea party member..

A family friend said that the shooter once had a tea party with his baby sister and that was close enough for the liberals at ABC news...

I don’t think ANYONE here wants to go down this road.

This is purely defense to prevent these nutters from trying to use these deaths as a political opportunity.

Once they back off, then this stops.

True, there are crazies on both sides, but only one side encourages the crazies and violence as the answer.

That side isn’t the right, that side is the left.

I went to ABCNews website and read the comments for the story. A great majority are b$%^h-slapping ABC for trying to pin this on Rush, conservatives, the Tea Party, etc. Also, how gun laws are ineffective: there were signs posted around the theater about it being a “gun free zone”. A lot of good that did. When will liberals get it? If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!

Democrat or Republican...Tea Partier or Occupier...it doesn’t make any difference. The shooter is a Member of Society...and it is scary that people like this exist anywhere.

His political affiliation doesn't matter. The fact is that he is an American who was driven to this.

In a chaotic environment where Americans are being pitted against each other by reckless rhetoric of the Obama administration the most easily influenced will be the first to act.

Make no mistake about it, this is the result of the "99%", the "war on women", the "tax the rich", the "you didn't build this", and other ploys that the marxists have used to divide the country.

The far, far, anarchist left advocates violence, but not the run of the mill liberal or Obama supporter. This guy was a nut on the fringe and most Americans all across the political spectrum will be repelled by this evil massacre.

It could very well be that Obama put this guy up to it to draw people to his gun grabbing agenda, and away from the “gov. built your business” ideology.

“She says her son recently moved to Colorado to pursue a Ph.D.”

Interesting. Quite possibly a member of the radical academic left. Mao, remember, started his career as a librarian. Most of the leading Bolsheviks in the time of Lenin were also serious academic and literary types. If this guy was one of the most radical OWS “black” (no insults intended or implied to any African-americans) protesters, it could also fit.
