Is James Holmes a Terrorist?


Is James Holmes a Terrorist?

Hasan Yahya, Professor of Comparative Sociology

James Holmes is NOT a terrorist.(HNS)

This is a virtual interview with the writer of these lines.  The interview answers seven questions about mass killing.

Question 1: Is James Holmes a terrorist?

Answer: Of  course not. He is likely to be described as angry person like Timothy McVeigh. Homeland Security official says he’s not a terrorist. But Peace Activists. McVeigh was responsible for the Oklahoma City Bombing, the deadliest act of terrorism in this country prior to 9/11, killing 168 people and injured much more people in Oklahoma City. But Holmes killed only a dozen, and injured only tens of citizens. In fact Pennsylvania’s Homeland Security Director James Powers said: “Tim McVey [sic] is NOT a terrorist, just very angry with the U.S. government,” Powers said. “Whether a person is a terrorist or a criminal is irrelevant to me.”

Question2: Who’s is responsible for James Holmes Act of violence?

Answer: In simple words, the sewer pipe we call Hollywood and the entertainment industry pumping out sicker, more nihilistic and more violence-strewn films than ever before.

Question 3:  What Movies? Can you give us example?

Answer: Rambo and Star War began with the Republican President, Ronald Reagan,  Other films, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, (Oklahoma City Man, Texas Man,) James Bond, The Dark Knight etc., In fact, The new Batman film reaches new levels of brutality is a prime example. In addition to violent games like Manhunt 2.

Question 4: Why America keeps experiencing mass shootings?

Answer: I can guess, but I say, this will not come to an end, until our sick culture and entertainment industry stop contributing to the general malaise and unfeeling psychosis that seems to have gripped the younger generations. I would echo  Jenny McCartney,  in Great Britain who describes the British as a  society seduced by sadism. America is not far from that description.

Question 5: What about education?

Up to the 1990, negotiation instead of using fest is the policy in schools and universities.  After the role model for Americans (our government) attacked Iraq twice, and Afghanistan, educators became embarrassed to pursue the negotiation approach.

Question 6: Can Gun control to blame?

Answer: We are Death-Obsessed Culture, Not Gun Rights, to Blame for Batman Shooting. Guns Don’t kill, Movies Kill.

Question 7: Is there solution for mass killing in this country and elsewhere? And is there a pre-crime solution to mass killing?

Answer: for the first part, I say: To stop Mass killing, we need to remove the reason for mass killing. Mass killing in Syria, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, west bank and Gaza, Burma, Norway, Mali, etc., we live it every day, so it is not strange to share mass killing. American culture is swimming in imagined fame glory of individuals. Helped and nourished by the media.

For the second part, however, it is impossible, but there is something common to almost all mass killing, they are mind control, and show that they can. To know these people is hard to tell, unless we follow the Israeli approach of preventing terror as they claim by terminating Palestinians of all ages, if they imagine they would threat its national security. Which is impossible to accept ethically in the case of American citizens Fame dreamers.   www.dryahyatv.com
