I think so.
First, this attack happened early on a Friday morning, so as to drive the news cycle ALL weekend.
This link is from WKYC.com, via drudgereport.com,
Hit the link and watch the video. Money quote as follows:
"As I was sitting down to get my seat, I noticed that a person came up to the front row, the front right, sat down, and as credits were going, it looked like he got a phone call. He went out toward the emergency exit doorway, which I thought was unusual to take a phone call. And it seemed like he probably pried it open, or probably did not let it latch all the way. As soon as the movie started, somebody came in, all black, gas mask, armor, and threw a gas can into the audience, and it went off, and then there were gunshots that took place."
So, our shooter received a phone call telling him it was time. Then he goes outside, making sure his way back in is unblocked, returns decked out in body armor and weapons and begins his murderous task.
No this is not far fetched. Yes I do believe this is what happened.
Next we have ABC news with George Stephanopolous and Brian Ross, immediately suggesting it was a Tea Party member. Never mind that they can retract it later. They'll just sheepishly smile and say "We're sorry, we jumped the gun..." At the same time, we had Fox News Correspondent, Trace Gallagher, saying over and over again that the shooter, James Holmes, didn't have a concealed weapons permit, nor did he even have a hunting license. (I mean really, if a person isn't going hunting, nor does he have a permission slip from the State, then what business does he have possessing weapons at all?)
Next we have this lovely piece of journalism from ABC. This was all prepped and ready to go before the shooting in Aurora.

Go and watch the video. All you really need to hear is the first few seconds, "We start with what could be called, Vigilante Video..." It could also be called, successful self defense video, or righteous self preservation video. But that wouldn't fit the intended narrative, would it? Note also the "expert opinion", paraphrasing here, "You shouldn't defend your life! You absolutely shouldn't, self preservation is suicide!" Orwellian doesn't even reach the mark.
Then we have the Chief of Aurora Police, Daniel Oates, formerly of the NYPD, that gleaming jewel of Second Amendment support, telling us all that the shooter had four guns, all of which he obtained legally (I mean legally! Really!), and literally buckets, thousands of rounds of ammunition. I mean really! Why would anyone NEED buckets of ammunition? (Prove to me your need, and maybe I'll permit you...) He also had a one hundred round drum magazine for the "assault rifle"! (A 100 rd. drum? Now that is just the last straw! 100 rd. drum magazines cause people to behave badly!) Note also how Chief Oates refers to the AR-15 rifle, the single most common rifle in America today (such was the 1873 Winchester in it's time), as an "assault rifle". If Chief Oates, or one of his officers, has thew same rifle it is then magically transformed into a "patrol rifle".
Then we have the Mighty Kenyan, ready and willing to sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty, just in time to save us from Manchurian Shooters like Mr. Holmes.
Most importantly, the movie theater in which the Manchurian Shooter carried out his assignment, was, by policy, a victim disarmament zone. It was, by policy, a target rich environment. See David Codrea's blog at, http://waronguns.blogspot.com/2012/07/was-co-theater-no-guns-zone.html
Note that not one pundit in the MSM, nor one single politician, has publicly said, "You know, if only a handful of those good and innocent people in the movie audience, or even one or two, or even ONE, would have had a sidearm with him, the shooter might have been put down before he did so much damage."
Finally, if you have not seen the original Manchurian Candidate, from 1962, get a copy now and watch it. Then watch it again. Yes, that really is how it works.
