Absolute dipshits.

ABC draws possible Tea Party connection with alleged Aurora shooter

ABC News has suggested that James Holmes -- the suspect in today's shooting in Aurora, Colorado -- may have a connection to the Tea Party.
ABC's Brian Ross reported this morning that there is "a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, page on the Colorado Tea party site... talking about him joining the Tea Party last year."
"Now, we don't know if this is the same Jim Holmes," Ross cautioned "but it's Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado."
ABC News is the only network or cable news channel to suggest a possible Tea Party connection, according to a survey of the TV Eyes database at 9:30 a.m. ET, though they did not verify that the two individuals were one and the same. (This is the Tea Party Patriots page on which Ross based his report.)
The report has already set off alarm bells on the right. At Brietbart.com, the conservative news site, Joel Pollak has accused ABC News of "scapegoating."
"How interesting that Ross and ABC News should think to look to the Tea Party website first--and to broadcast politically volatile information without verifying if that 'Jim Holmes' is the same as the suspect," Pollak writes. "Look for more scapegoating from the mainstream media and the Democrats in the hours and days to follow."
I have reached out to ABC News for comment on its report, and will update here if and when I hear back.
UPDATE: ABC News apologizes for 'incorrect' Tea party report:
ABC News and Brian Ross are apologizing for an "incorrect" report that James Holmes, the suspect in the Colorado theater shooting, may have had connections to the Tea Party.
"An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect," ABC News said in a statement. "ABC News and Brian Ross apologize for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted."
In a similar statement released minutes earlier, ABC News said the report was "incorrect" but did not include the apology. "Several other local residents with similar names were also contacted via social media by members of the public who mistook them for the suspect," the initial statement read.

Mass Murder in Colorado Prompts Full-on Right Wing Victimhood Binge

Right wing blogs are already freaking out in full-on persecuted victim mode, because an early report from ABC News wrongly confused the shooter with another James Holmes in Colorado, who is a Tea Party member.

In response to this incorrect report, for which ABC News apologized soon after, the wingnuts bloggers immediately started digging for evidence that Holmes is connected to the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Joel Pollak blared the headline at Breitbart.com: EXCLUSIVE: CONTRA ABC NEWS, DARK KNIGHT AURORA, CO SHOOTING SUSPECT JAMES HOLMES COULD BE REGISTERED DEMOCRAT.
Oh, but wait — now there’s an update: “UPDATE: NOT REGISTERED?”

What a bunch of hateful clowns.

If you truly believe that the Tea Party story got on the air without foreknowledge of the company honchos, then perhaps you'd like to become an investor in my new marketing idea - the Michael Moore Quick Weight Loss Diet Plan.
C'mon - it's a sure thing.

ABC at least had the decency to own up to their mistake and admit they were wrong. Brietbart just let it hang out there with "updates" like "Not registered?" If this too is over your head please let me know and I'll do my best to dumb it down for you.

A multi-billion dollar international media outlet should be held to a vastly higher standard than an obscure blogger typing away in his mother’s basement. The ABC story should have never seen the light of day. If the higher-up policy makers at ABC had not wanted that story to run, then it damn well wouldn’t have run. But they did want it to run, and the lame retraction came after their intentional damage was already done, demonstrating that ABC's journalistic standards are gutter-level (if even that high). How many of the viewers who saw the initial story are even aware of the retraction? This Tea Party guilt by association was the same bullshit the media tried to pull with Jared Loughner in the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, and this is also disgustingly reminiscent of the way NBC altered the Zimmerman 911 recording.

Speaking of "absolute dipshits..."
The republican male version of Michele Bachmann speaks:

Quote :
Louie Gohmert: Aurora Shootings Result Of 'Ongoing Attacks On Judeo-Christian Beliefs'

Posted: 07/20/2012
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Friday that the shootings that took place in an Aurora, Colo. movie theater hours earlier were a result of "ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs" and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter.

"It does make me wonder, with all those people in the theater, was there nobody that was carrying a gun that could have stopped this guy more quickly?"

Yes, there was a Jim Holmes in the Tea Party. Unfortunately for ABC, there was no Jim Holmes /Mass Murderer in the Tea Party, a falsehood they were clearly attempting to convey.

You do know that he's a columnist on Breitbart,a site that gets about 1 million hits a month,and is often linked to by Drudge who gets about 13 million hits a month. There is nothing "obscure" about Breitbart or the lies that they promote. If the scumbags there would have had the decency to offer a full retraction like ABC did,I wouldn't have an issue with them,but like most wingnut lie factories they just let it hang out there. Your attempt to minimize their behavior makes you no better than they are. Evil or Very Mad

The GOP absolutely has no shortage of "absolute dipshits:"
Quote :
Ron Johnson: High-Capacity Magazines Are A Constitutional Right (VIDEO)
WASHINGTON -- Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) drew a fairly strict line in the sand on Sunday with respect to the coming debate over gun control, suggesting that there is a constitutional right to buy high-capacity clips and magazines.

"Does something that would limit magazines that could carry 100 rounds, would that infringe on the constitutional right?" host Chris Wallace asked Johnson on "Fox News Sunday."

"I believe so," Johnson replied.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/22/ron-johnson-high-capacity-magazines_n_1692810.html

Yep
No doubt that it's what John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington wanted.

1 million hits per month as opposed to 7,808,000 hits in a week.
Yup, obscure blogger.

So if a relative came to you and said that they were a victim of abuse you would minimize their accusations? If you were an educator that would be against the law...
