Media Tries To Tie “Batman” Shooter To Tea Party

Less that twenty-four hours after the shooting in Aurora, CO, allegedly by Jim Holmes at the screening of the new movie, The Dark Knight Rises, the media is already jumping on to politicizing the tragedy. The new film has already been politicized, but to take a tragedy like this, where at least a dozen people lost their lives, is just sickening.

Leave it to ABC’s Good Morning America to bring on Brian Ross who, while speaking with George Stephanopoulos, said “There’s a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site as well, talking about him joining the Tea Party last year. Now, we don’t know if this is the same Jim Holmes. But it’s Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado.”

The page Ross refers to was actually promoting an event in which Brigitte Gabriel would be speaking at on Thursday, July 26. This does not seem very credible that a man promoting such a thing would then go out and begin to shoot up people in the manner that the shooter did in this instance.

But we should not be surprised that the liberal media would do such a thing. They immediately politicized the Gabrielle Giffords shooting claiming that Sarah Palin might somehow be to blame because of her “target list” that she posted to her Facebook page back in March of 2010 which had crosshairs on areas in which she wanted to take back control from Democrats and among them were three areas in Arizona.

CBS continued to promote that the shooter, Jared Loughner, had a particular extreme conservatism and yet we came to find out that he didn’t even have a particular political ideology. Eventually a proper analysis of Loughner was made, but only after the damage had been done to smear conservatives.

Already though Joel Pollack is pointing out that the two men are vastly different:

There are many people with the name “James Holmes” in the area, and the James Homes on the Tea Party website could match a James Homes from Aurora, CO who is in his fifties and therefore does not fit the description of the suspect. More evidence that Ross, Stephanolpoulos and ABC rushed to blame the Tea Party without confirmation that the suspect is also the Tea Party member.

There is no doubt in my mind that the media and Democrats will shamelessly exploit this and in the end there will be a cry for more gun control and more attempts to tie this to conservatives.

UPDATE:As predicted, New York mayor Michael “You Can’t Have Big Gulps” Bloomberg is already calling for more gun control due to something that took place 2500 miles from his state.
