US Tragedies: from Colorado Shooting to OWS

“James Holmes opened fire and set off gas canisters in a suburban theater in Aurora, Colorado. The shooting took place at 12:38 a.m. July 20, 2012. The attack left 12 people dead and about 60 injured. ‘Holmes Planned Colorado Shooting For Months. He planned the attack with calculation and deliberation’, police said Saturday. Holmes apparently had prepared well in advance, receiving multiple deliveries by mail for four months to his home and school and buying thousands rounds of ammunition on the Internet. Holmes was a top PhD candidate at the University of Colorado. He was studying neuroscience and mental disorders [!] Police removed dangerous explosive materials from inside Holmes’ suburban Denver apartment a day after the massacre. Authorities don’t want to discuss motives for one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history“, the American media reported. And the people media added: “The American officials and their media that are used to prejudge terrorists and their motives, specially when they are Muslims or non-Americans, say nothing about the American terrorist that has created the largest mass shooting in the US by number of victims. If the shooter was a Muslim or non-American/ European, what they would say about him and his motive? What they would call him and his country? We all know their words: barbaric, uncultured, cruel, brutal, savage, etc. But when the terrorist is American, European, or Christian, they forget all these words. The American authorities and the American mass media say nothing about “the motives of Holmes”, but if he was a Muslim or non-American, we would have heard their bullshit and their prejudice soon”. There will be much discussion over James Holmes in the months ahead, but now, you only can find crazy conspiracy theories about Holmes and his motives. Some say: “He worked as a summer camp counselor to underprivileged children at a Jewish camp in Los Angeles in 2008. He is a white Jewish bastard [!]”. And some claim: “Holmes regularly attended church. His family was active in a local church, according to a neighbor. He is a Christian fundamentalist, like the Norwegian terrorist”. And some say: “You can find his name in a Tea Party website”. And some claim: “Holmes’ hair was painted red and he told police that he was ‘The Joker’. He was inspired by the Batman series [!]”. It’s so obvious that authorities can’t hide the truth, and sooner or later, people would know him and his motives. Unfortunately, the American Sheeple just repeat what their politicians and their media dictate to them. They say: “to hell with the shooter let’s focus on the victims”. And when the wise guys ask: “why the tragedy in Aurora Colorado occurred?”, they just reply: “It is James Holmes fault, no one else’s”. This kind of foolishness belongs to the third world countries. In Iran you can’t find this kind of foolishness. Anyway, but who is James Holmes? It’s not clear. The media report: “James Holmes is 24 year old student. He had recently withdrawn from a competitive graduate program in neuroscience at the University of Colorado, where he was one of six top students at the school to get National Institutes of Health grant money“. Until now, people know almost nothing about Holmes and his motives. “The American media say nothing about his motives. The media are shallow in their reporting. They just try to scare people. They want to serve their own, often hidden, propaganda agendas. Fear is a powerful tool. Vandenberg told Truman that if he wanted to have a war-time defense budget in peace-time, he would have to scare the hell out of the American people; it worked !”, wise Americans say.


“Aurora massacre” can remind you of “Columbine massacre”. Maybe the root of Aurora massacre is like the root of the 1999 Columbine school shooting. As the wise guys say: “Many of these shootings are by young male loners. A terrible childhood, broken marriages, drunken parents and lack of love or belonging to family, poverty and horrible economic conditions, fundamentalism, racism, fanaticism, discrimination, injustice, inequality, bullying, violent media, violent games, and many other social problems and family problems can lead to these shootings”. And the people media add: “Holmes was a brilliant science student and the son of a nurse and a software manager. His neighbors say: ‘He was quiet. He was happy. He seemed nice’. Of course, some days before the massacre neighbors living below Holmes noted loud music coming from his apartment at midnight. A neighbor describes Holmes as a ‘typical American kid,’ who ‘kept to himself’ and ‘didn’t seem to have many friends’. In fact, James Holmes is just a typical American kid“. But there are many conspiracy theories. Some claim: “Holmes created the profile on July 5. It included a picture of himself with reddish, orange hair. Colorado mass murderer James Holmes has a small penis [!]” And some even say: “The Batman movie portrays the OWS crowd in a negative vein, the new Batman movie featured the villain as an Occupy Wall Street type. Holmes was a member of the OWS terrorists [!!], and his shooting up of the Aurora movie theater was payback for the Batman movie slamming the OWS [!]”. They even published a photo and said Holmes was arrested in the OWS protests (below photo). The capitalists and the stupid rights try to attack the OWS by any means, but it’s sadly funny that the OWS is a very stupid movement, and both its supporters and its opponents are so stupid. Both the stupid rights and the stupid lefts play with the American public, and it’s a great tragedy. When the OWS declares: “we should not have any goal, demand, or plan”, it’s so obvious that the bad guys don’t want to allow people to have real changes and progressive changes. The OWS is really a great tragedy, greater than Colorado shooting. If the OWS had a clear demand list, they could change many things, and could win serious concessions. But the bad guys and the stupid lefts don’t want to let it happens. And unfortunately, the American Sheeple just follow them like sheep. It’s really tragic. The story of the OWS is simple: “people revolted against the bad guys, but the bad guys bought some intellects and asked them to say to the people: we don’t need any goal and any demand. We just need a blind riot”. It’s really tragic, more than Colorado shooting. “The OWS and the Colorado Shooting can show Iranians and other nations that even when you live in the US, you should be faced with many serious problems. Holmes was a good student. Why he should kill others and ruin his own life? It’s a serious question”, some say. Of course, it doesn’t mean that the US is like Iran under the Mullah regime. I know that when you live under tyranny, specially in the big prison (Iran), it’s very hard to accept that the US has many serious problems, but you can’t escape from reality. I think the US problems mean: If you live like sheep or other animals !, and if you don’t care about kissing ass, corruption, or human values, there is no serious difference between Iran and the US. But if you need freedom to express yourself, and if you need to live with wise guys freely, and if you don’t want to live like animals, charlatans, and other bad guys, then there are serious differences between the US and Iran under the Mullah regime; In the US, you can have many things that you can’t have them in Iran under the Mullah regime.


There is a sad connection between mass shooting in Colorado and the mass shooting in Toronto. “Jessica Ghawi that is among 12 people killed in Colorado, had written movingly about witnessing an earlier mass shooting incident in Toronto. Ghawi wrote last month that she was at a mall in Toronto while on vacation when a 23-year-old man opened fire in the food court, killing one person and wounding several others. Ghawi said that she stepped out of the mall after she got a funny feeling in the food court. A few minutes later, the man opened fire. She wrote: ‘I saw lives change. I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. For one man, it was in the middle of a busy food court on a Saturday evening. I say all the time that every moment we have to live our life is a blessing. So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift. After Saturday evening, I know I truly understand how blessed I am for each second I am given’. Ghawi, who had recently moved from San Antonio to Denver, was tweeting enthusiastically about seeing the premiere of the Batman movie on Thursday, and tried to convince her friends to go with her to the midnight show. Friday morning, many of those same friends expressed shock and deep sadness when they learned Ghawi was one of 12 dead so far in the attack. Ghawi had been shot in the head”, the media reported. It’s very rare to witness two mass shooting, specially in two different countries. As the wise guys say: “the poor girl was lucky once but not twice. Apparently, in the recent years these mass murders are so common that one victim can be in two mass shooting. It’s a great tragedy for North America”. And some add: “Sometimes people wonder why me. Sometimes why not me. This must have been like deja vu for that poor girl before she died. It’s very upsetting”. The story of Aurora massacre is tragic. The media reported: “The attack began shortly after midnight at the multiplex in Aurora. The shooter bought a ticket and walked into the cinema. He then left through an emergency exit, went to his car, and donned armored clothing, all in black a helmet, vest, metal protectors for his neck, leg and groin, and heavy gloves. He also put on a gas mask . After 30 minutes, looking like a member of a Swat team, as one eyewitness put it, Holmes returned carrying at least three of the guns. Some thought the gunman was pulling a prank, and some thought he was part of a special effects installation set up for the premiere as a publicity stunt by the studio or theater. There were several Batman obsessives who had dressed up in costume for the premiere. Many said they thought it was part of the movie, or some kind of stunt associated with it. The masked man threw canisters to the ground, and gas started to emerge and spread through the auditorium. Even then, some people thought that a special effects stunt had been arranged by the movie theater. And then he pulled out a shotgun, aimed it at the ceiling and pulled the trigger. A shot rang out. Then he pointed at the back of the cinema and shot some more. There was no mistaking his deadly intent then. Some bullets went through the wall hitting people in the neighboring Theater 8 [!], screening the same film. The shooter managed to discharge so many rounds in such a short period of time. And finally, the police arrested an unresisting Holmes behind the theater next to his car“. It’s really tragic.


“The mass shooting in Colorado and Toronto can show us that both the US and Canada have many problems, and that’s why the Mullah crooks, the Mullah killers and the Mullah rapists can freely live in North American”, some Iranians say. The north Americans should think more about the current events, form the Bill 78 and the OWS to the mass shooting and the Sheeple’s foolishness. The Aurora massacre should force them to think about the serious problems. “It was the deadliest in Colorado since the Columbine High School massacre in suburban Denver in 1999, when two students killed 12 classmates and a teacher and wounded 26 others before killing themselves”, some say. Many of eyewitness accounts in Colorado, are like eyewitness accounts in Norway: “It was very hard to breathe. I told my brother to take cover. It took awhile. I started seeing flashes and screaming, I just saw blood and people yelling and a quick glimpse of the guy who had a gas mask on. I was pushed out. There was chaos, we started running … many thought the shooting was part of the film’s special effects. I thought it was fireworks until I got hit … I saw little kids die, mums die, people who were hurt, people who I didn’t save because I was trying to save myself. I saw couple of bodies in front of the stairs and when I get outside everybody screaming, like, I’m shot, I need help. It was crazy … At first I was so scared. I didn’t know what to do so we just hide under the seats. And you don’t want to move because you not sure if he is going to shoot you. The hardest part was getting up and moving, leaving, just getting up and doing something about it. We run as fast as we could run until we saw people”. But some eyewitness accounts are tragicomic. They just remind you of a big problem in the US: The religious fanatics. A survivor say: “I thought I was going to die. And I realized that I was ready. I have put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ as the redeemer of my soul, and there wasnt the slightest doubt that I would be received into heaven, not because of any good thing that I have done but because of His merciful nature and the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ [!]”. I know that most of Iranians can’t believe that many Americans are like the Mullahs. But when you read their comments, you think they are Islamists, and the US regime has the potential for becoming a theocracy or a new Mullah regime! The Americans and their comments can show you many things. They say: “Pray for all Americans, and for people who witnessed such horror. Pray for this to be an opportunity for God to manifest Himself in mighty ways [!] … I joined with hundreds of others to pray for the hurting and injured … It was the evil act of James Holmes, not God that took the lives of those people. God loves all of His children … I will never be ashamed of my God or the Bible … The faith of our people is beautiful. God is always good … It breaks my heart when people question God in the midst of tragedy … God is always good. Man is not. Dont get the two confused … His glory would be manifested though this tragedy [!] and many would come to salvation through Christ [!] … God gets blamed for the things mortels do, instead of blaming the devil”. In think instead of talking about gun laws in the US, they should start to talk about the problem of the stupid lefts and the religious fanatics in the US ! Of course, some Americans react to the American fanatics and say: “Many Christians are selfish. The survivors say :’Oh, God still loves me, and that’s why I’m safe and well’. And it means God hated the victims and that’s why they are dead! … God is with you, not with the victims that were killed ?! … You are safe, and praying God, but what the victims and their family should do? … If praying actually did anything, it wouldnt be you who needs prayers, it would be the wounded and grieving … Why would your God allow such a thing? He loves you and hates the poor victims ?!”. Only a few American comments are reasonable; the wise Americans say: “The shooter alone is to blame for this, and the state of Colorado and others are not responsible ?! … When I read over the people comments it shows hast, and anger, not deep and serious thoughts … Anytime some insane person does something violent, we have to find a reason for it. We can never just say the person is crazy … Do not make the shooter a celebrity“. I hope the Americans can see the main problems.


“The story of the OWS and the American Sheeple is really a great tragedy. When their top intellect is some one like Noam Chomsky, that defends the Mullahs and the brutal dictators, it’s so obvious that the American society should have many serious problems, that foolishness and naivety is just one of them”, some say. After Aurora shooting, the American media and many Americans are talking about the gun law and banning access to arms. But only the wise Americans think rationally. They say: “We should have a conversation about guns in a country where more than 84 people a day are killed with guns, and more than twice that number are injured with them”. I agree with them, and they should have public debate and discussion in the US, and the gun lobbyists and politicians should not be able to ignore what people want. But the main problem of the US is not its gun law. “Guns are banned in other countries, but it doesn’t solve many problems. You can buy guns illegally. We have not forgotten the story of the Norwegian terrorists, Breivik, or other terrorists”, some say. The stupid lefts and other idiots try to pretend that “banning access to arms” can solve all problems, and it’s very stupid. There is no law, no change, no idea, no regime, and no revolution that can build a utopia or solve all problems. But the stupid lefts try to fool people, and that’s why the OWS was a very stupid movement, without any goal and any demand. They still see classic revolution, violence, theocracy, Marxism, or Communism as a solution, and it’s really horrible. These idiots can’t find any real solution for the American problems. The gun law was not a bad law, of course in the 18th century. Some truly say: “The first Americans looked at the gun law as a potential right of a citizen to protect themselves from a would-be dictatorship. The kings and dictators usually are keen on banning access to arms by their citizens. The ban might be seen as a State exercising its control over its citizens”. And some wise guys reply: “The 18th century measure to to protect an infant states was good, but now the people are not able to fight against the US government. The government has heavy and modern weapons, but people only can have light weapons. The 21st century is not the 18th century”. The good guys can debate, and find a solution. But the gun law is not among the biggest problems in the US. The lobbyists, the stupid lefts, the Sheeple, the capitalists, money and corruption, injustice and inequality, the mass media, etc, are more important problems. The story of Colorado shooting can be informative. Some say: “we’ve heard of stories of a employee killing his boss and co-workers. But Holmes had problem with his community and his people”. Americans should think more about this issue, and it can show Iranians and other nations that the US has many serious problems, and many people are not happy there. They are victims of their politicians, their Sheeple, their pseudo-intellects, their corrupt system, etc. It’s very important that we know the differences and the similarities between the US and Iran under the Mullah regime. It’s useful for Americans, Iranians, and other nations. The stupid lefts and some one like Chomsky claim that the US is as bad as Iran under the Mullah regime, and it’s a big lie. And the stupid rights, the Iranian baboons, and other bad guys try to pretend that the US is a utopia !, because most of Americans are intellectuals ! And Iran is not like the US, because most of Iranians are stupider than Americans !! and it’s a very very big lie. I hope all people try to think more about the differences and the similarities between the US and Iran. It’s very important. We should write more about this issue later.
