Adam Lanza & Batman theater shooterhave common denominators.Both their fathers to testify in US Senate hearings about the Libor scandal.

The latest cockamamie plot floating around the Internet that the Aurora movie theater shooting and Newtown school massacre were somehow tied to the LIBOR financial scandal. Both far-left and far-right websites are screaming “staged shooting” and asserting that the fathers of the shooters were targeted because they were both set to “testify” before the U.S. Senate about the global bank fraud scandal.

If you follow all the links back and forth on Twitter and in the blogosphere, you will run around in a nutty Internet circle and find the same hysterical article claiming that the Robert Holmes, father of James Holmes, and Peter Lanza, father of Adam Lanza, were  knee-deep in the scandal and about to blow the whistle on…something or other.

But there is nothing — NOTHING — to substantiate the sensational claims.

Weirdest thing I’ve heard in a while: the fathers of both the Aurora and Newtown shooters were set to testify about the LIBOR scandal.

@adamcurry Listening to show #470. In the next show will you adress the issue of the fathers of the killers Sandy/Aurora involved in Libor?

Just look at the websites spreading the bullcrap. Think, people.

Exactly:

I want to se the subpoena, testimony, court dates, or any evidence that both fathers were to testify in LIBOR.

When tragedy strikes, you can always count on three types of cretins to swarm in: media vultures, Westboro hate-mongers, and conspiracy theorists. A pox on all their houses.
