Black Bloc / Occupy James Holmes: Was Aurora Batman Killer Part of Occupy Extremist Offshoot?
Early this afternoon, I was on “The Jack Riccardi Show” on KTSA-AM, San Antonio’s ABC Radio station, to talk about “The Dark Knight Rises” (read my review) and this morning’s massacre of moviegoers at a showing of the movie in Aurora, Colorado. On the show, I was asked by Jack if I thought the attack was based on the content and message of the movie or if, as he thought, it was just done there because the killer, Jack Holmes, knew there would be a crowd. I agreed with Jack. But I also said that it was ridiculous to paint Holmes, about whom we knew nothing, as a Tea Party activist. I added that if he were any sort of activist and if his attack were based on the movie, he’d have to be from Occupy or Occupy Wall Street, since the movie’s villain, a terrorist named, “Bane,” has an Occupy message against the rich, and he’s a violent, murderous terrorist.

Private Investigator Bill Warner believes that Holmes was an activist in Black Bloc, the extremist offshoot of the Occupy movement.
