Online fans and memes are bound to surface on just about anything -- but this may be taking it too far. These online fans call themselves "Holmies" -- because the man they're honoring is James Holmes, the alleged gunman who shot and killed 12 people in an Aurora movie theater just a few short weeks ago.

By dressing in plaid and flannel and posing with Slurpees, these "holmies" are giving an ode to Holmes, as the 24-year-old former student was evidently dressed in plaid and flannel underneath his gun armor during the shooting and once said that his dream is to own a Slurpee machine one day. Do you think the spring-up of these online "fans" is sick and twisted -- or is it just an immature act by adolescents who don't know any better?

Ironic, satirical or just plain depraved? Accused Aurora killer James Holmes has inspired an online legion of 'fans' who upload original artworks and photos of themselves sporting Holmes-inspired plaid shirts flannel and sipping Slurpees.

    I can think of only one person who can do a cover up like the one we know for a FACT has happened here .... Eric Holder

    The most corrupt and bigoted AG in US History.
  • Franklin Bob DiN 2012/08/04 09:44:20
    he had a hard run to get ahead of the one Clinton had but he did it !
  • Bob DiN Franklin 2012/08/04 11:16:40

    Yes but he makes Reno look not as bad.
  • Franklin Bob DiN 2012/08/06 11:16:10
    only because we can understand why Reno did what she did ...she defended Clinton so he could protect his crimes and make $$$ ...Holders motives in protecting Obama are far less understandable ...and far more dangerous
  • Bob DiN Franklin 2012/08/06 14:08:21

    Yes as bad as Reno was Holder is much more dangerous.
  • Franklin Bob DiN 2012/08/07 11:53:14
    Reno did evil for money that has its limits , Holder has higher and darker goals with his criminal acts

  • Franklin Bob DiN 2012/08/08 13:33:38

    Both I would say but mostly just immature kids trying to find themselves. A good way to convert their way of thinking would be to lock them in a theater and turn a gunman lose on them.

    It's both! But if my kid (if I had one) did something like that, they'd deffinatly be punished!

    Any kid who thinks supporting a guy who murdered twelve people for no reason is sick and will probably grow up to be a murdering psychopath as well.

    this has nothing to do with the american nut case, but what is does show is that ALL religions make people crazy; dont forget christians burned women and tortured their own folks for quite a few years.
