And the collective immaturity of the audience and their idiotic adulation of comic book superheros long beyond the appropriate age for this (14 at the very latest) is echoed and amplified in the idiotic shooter decking himself out as the Joker
One could say that the decadence of the Romans began when they stopped being really violent themselves and became mere spectators in the grandstands of the Colloseum, depraved, debauched, soft, weak voyeurs without the guts to actually fight themselves. Vicious cowards...feral weaklings..
To once again quote the greatest humanitarian of the 20th century:
"Was there any form of filth or profligacy, particularly in cultural life, without at least one Jew involved in it?
If you cut even cautiously into such an abscess, you found, like a maggot in a rotting body, often dazzled by the sudden light-a kike!
What had to be reckoned heavily against the Jews in my eyes was when I became acquainted with their activity in the press, art, literature, and the theater. All the unctuous reassurances helped little or nothing It sufficed to look at a billboard, to study the names of the men behind the horrible trash they advertised, to make you hard for a long time to come. This was pestilence, spiritual pestilence, worse than the Black Death of olden times, and the people was being infected with it! It goes without saying that the lower the intellectual level of one of these art manufacturers, the more unlimited his fertility will be, and the scoundrel ends up like a garbage separator, splashing his filth in the face of humanity. And bear in mind that there is no limit to their number; bear in mind that for one Goethe Nature easily can foist on the world ten thousand of these scribblers who poison men's souls like germ-carriers of the worse sort, on their fellow men.
It was terrible, but not to be overlooked, that precisely the Jew, in tremendous numbers, seemed chosen by Nature for this shameful calling.
Is this why the Jews are called the 'chosen people'?
I now began to examine carefully the names of all the creators of unclean products in public artistic life. The result was less and less favorable for my previous attitude toward the Jews. Regardless how my sentiment might resists my reason was forced to draw its conclusions.
The fact that nine tenths of all literary filth, artistic trash, and theatrical idiocy can be set to the account of a people, constituting hardly one hundredth of all the country's inhabitants, could simply not be tanked away; it was the plain truth."

If you go to a midnight movie to see a man dressed in tights and a costume, who lives in a cave with another man, and whose closest companion is a male butler . . . . then you get what you deserve.

Back in the past, they had some violence on the screen, but it wasn't gory, and even nogs weren't as remotely violent as they are today. Coincidence? THere were also vastly fewer gun restrictions back then too.
This statement is conjecture at best and flat out bullshit. Violence permeates nearly every aspect of our entertainment short of porn. This psycho who did this was projecting his violent fantasies, fed by our media, into real life. Happens every day. All he had to do was walk to the corner and purchase an arsenal meant for warfare and turn his fantasies into real life. Fantasies created by fantastically violent films LIKE THE DARK KNIGHT.
