ABC News once again documented how biased and prepared to immediately blame the Tea Party for whatever nut happens to come along and shoot a bunch of people. They were wrong. And you have to wonder what would have happened had Fox News wrongly demonized a minority the way ABC did in coming up with the wrong “James Holmes” as well as the wrong political affiliation. The mainstream media was just as quick to demonize conservatives when Jared Loughner shot Gabrielle Giffords and killed several people. And, you guessed it, they were wrong, too. Because if anything the whackjob a.k.a. Jared Loughner was a Bush-hating liberal. And then a Democrat who had actually been wounded at the shooting documented which side was really the violent side by issuing a death-threat against a Tea Party spokesman.
The one thing – the ONLY thing – that the left truly does well is blame and demonize.
These people don’t need “facts.” They can just make them up as they go along:
Left blames Aurora shooting on Rush Limbaugh
Posted at 9:11 am on July 20, 2012 by Twitchy Staff
I wonder if the Aurora shooting has anything to do with Rush Limbaugh’s comments on TDKR. I surely wouldn’t be surprised.
Some Twitter users are speculating that the Aurora, Colo., shooter was inspired by comments made by Rush Limbaugh. The shooting occurred at a midnight premiere of the movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.” On Tuesday July 17, Limbaugh said on his radio show that the name of the villain in the movie is a thinly-veiled dig at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney:
RUSH: Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain. The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?

But it was Democrats — not Limbaugh — who first linked the “Dark Knight Rises” villain to Romney. This is from an article in The Washington Examiner published Monday July 16, the day before Limbaugh’s comments:
This summer’s much-anticipated Hollywood blockbuster, “The Dark Knight Rises,” is getting an unusual boost from Democrats and other foes of Mitt Romney who are eager to tie the Gotham crushing villain to the GOP presidential candidate. Their angle: the mask-wearing, “Venom” gas breathing bad guy has a name that sounds just like Romney’s former investment firm that President Obama has been blasting as a jobs killer.
“Bane” is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president’s assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.
“It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood,” said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society,” he added.
The left says that we need to take a day off from the political divide in honor of the Aurora tragedy - even as they drag politics into the tragedy in Aurora by turning the day into an “Let’s overturn the 2nd Amendment and ban guns” issue. It doesn’t seem to matter that the most violent cities in America are ALL liberal cities with the most stringent gun laws.
You’d think at some point they would finally get tired of being wrong. But nope; being wrong seems to energize them into even greater feats of being completely wrong.
