This Glenn Beck nut is as delusional as the fans of Foxnews. "See 'Batman' and don't let the terrorists win". See the video here

@hilbert,
I'm planning on seeing The Dark Knight Rises regardless of whether that royal jackass decrees us to do so.

I'll see it to spite Glen Dick.

@hilbert,
It's sad that any act of violence is now a "terrorist" event. Someone who just shoots everyone up is not a terrorist.

@engineer,
Good point, engineer. Ever since 9/11/01 we've gotten more and more into the habit of labeling every act of violence as a "terrorist" act. Misuse of the word imo.

It's what the Nazis called the acts of Resistance movements in the occupied countries and also RAF Bomber Command's area bombing (some US and British historians agree with that, as do many in Germany)

@contrex,
You are calling a nutcase shooting up people in a theater with no apparent goal other than to kill people the same as French resistance efforts and carpet bombing?

No, I am doing the opposite. Is English your first language?

The Dark Knight Rises entered the record books about as quietly as a summer blockbuster can, its sweeping win at theaters this weekend overshadowed by the Aurora, Colo., massacre.

The third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise took in $160.9 million, distributor Warner Bros. reported. The opening gave it the highest debut for a 2-D movie, edging out its predecessor, 2008's The Dark Knight, the previous record holder at $158 million. Rises also scored the third-highest opening weekend overall, behind this summer's The Avengers ($207.4 million) and last year's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 ($169.2 million).

@Lustig Andrei,
I agree with you, Andrei. Wasn't it W who first overused the, "don't let the terrorists win", phrase?

@Lustig Andrei,
Well it makes me wonder how better the film would have done if the shootings didn't take place.

@tsarstepan,
Not necessarily, I don't see a reason why people would boycott seeing this film just because of a random tragic event was connected with it.

It'd be like never flying again after 9/11 logic.

There will always be psychopaths that ruins people's day, it doesn't mean we have to live in fear, and playing the blame game gets boring after a while. Put the psycho behind bars, comfort the family of victims, show strength of humanity and bravery to others by the lives of the survivors, and try to make tomorrow a better world.

@hilbert,
Perhaps it is from the characterization angle of these caped crusader comic book stories that people get the psyche impression that they must actualize emotional yearnings towards heroism.

Think about it.

The Batman nemesis Scarecrow is a terrorist who preys on society with fear toxins designed to immobilize someone and paralyze them and delay them from making healthy decisions in a timely fashion. If we internalize an avatar such as Scarecrow, we could imagine that failure to conquer fear is an ominous sign of frustration rather than a motivational sign of human bravado.
