Dumb Control: Colorado "Dark Knight" Movie Theater Massacre Garners the Pat, Predictable, Exploitive Response from American Leftists & Their "Mainstream" Media...
And that's precisely what we saw today. First, there was the attempt by ABC News to tie this creep Holmes to the right-winger tea party. The reporter, Brian Ross (a decent reporter in general who tends to embarrass himself whenever he sticks his snout into political angles), pointed out that a Colorado tea party member is named James Holmes. Only problem? So are a lot of people, and the scum who murdered the 12 people at the movie theater was not the tea party "James Holmes." Ouch. ABC News was later forced to issue an apology.
So when Avenue #1 didn't exactly pan out too well (what, wasn't Sarah Palin available?), there's always reliable #2, i.e. widespread calls from the leftists and their media today for "national reflection" and a new "national debate" on gun control. Now, while gun control is a very legitimate issue on which I often find myself somewhere between the leftists and the right-wingers, it has very little (if any) relevance to a situation when some skunk-wad like Holmes decides he's going murder a bunch of people. It's pretty simple: A calculating sleazebucket like Holmes determined to go on a first degree murder spree is likely going to get a hold of his guns no matter how many "gun control" measures you have on the books.
And another thing: Where are these calls for gun control from the leftists when there hasn't just been some gunman massacre? Nowhere. The leftists (most namely, their politicians) frequently go around avoiding the gun control issue like it was the plague since they perceive it as a non-winning, unpopular issue for them. Now there's some real courage and conviction for ya! But much like some drunk old man hittin' on the younger ladies down at the bar on Friday night, the leftists sure manage to work up that courage once some scuzjob whacks out some folks. Pretty pathetic, predictable, and putrid.
