Ok… This is OLD news,,, From February 2013, But after Mentioning the Hypothetical conspiracy to ban violent games in this country, an old story popped in my head. In the article below, it’s said that a huge 7 foot by 4 foot spreadsheet, meticulously detailing tons of different school/mass shootings, going all the way down to what weapons were used, and other little tiny details…  Then it goes on to say  the following horrible quotes that all link Adam Lanza to Violent Games and “deranged gamers”.

” “According to the veteran, Stebbins said the State Police believe Lanza saw the massacre in terms of a video game. It has previously been reported that investigators found “thousands of dollars worth” of violent games in his house.

“They don’t believe this was just a spreadsheet,” the longtime cop said. “They believe it was a score sheet,” and that it was “the work of a video gamer.” ”

“It’s why he didn’t want to be killed by law enforcement,” said the veteran to the Daily News. “In the code of a gamer, even a deranged gamer like this little bastard, if somebody else kills you, they get your points. They believe that’s why he killed himself.”

Well you can see where this is going….

Number 1, there is no “Code of the gamer” that says it’s preferable to KILL yourself in a game to save your points…. Almost No violent games HAVE points anymore, some do, but NONE that I know of take your points away if you get killed by the opposition, in Multi player, which can only what this is describing, because the whole game ends if you die in single player 99% of the time, and in cases where it doesn’t (rare), I can’t remember ones where dying made you loose points and the opposition got yours.

Number 2, this whole score sheet thing sounds fake, like the hoaxes I have debunked that are publicized in the Media to make it look like the Shooter  was influenced by violent games, things like the “Doom Will become reality Hoax” (debunked here), and the 3 news articles saying a modified version of doom was found on Eric Harris’s site with Impossible to do features in 1999 (debunked here). To make things worse, this whole article mentioned above has been Refuted by the REAL police, making it obvious that the quote about the sick gamer and the score sheet are NOT VALID OR REAL, at all…. If the Police claim this score sheet isn’t real, then….

Here is an interesting quote from a comments section of an article quoting the original New York Times Article…. Found Here..

“An article I read said this spreadsheet was printed 9 font, on print paper 9 feet long (one article) 7 feet long (another article) and 4 feet wide (both articles). Printers that can do that are usually used for blueprints and drawings. They are very very expensive…sometimes as much as a new sports car…which is why they are rented and usually not bought. The paper goes in the printer in huge rolls and the size is trimmed by the printer, based on document size. Hardly the kind of printer most folks have access to, and I don’t see him asking Kinko’s to print this out for him. My guess would be that as more people realize that, the size of the print paper will be omitted from future articles. Just sayin….”

Here’s the problem. Using the 9 font thing, I found that for the 500 names mentioned in the articleto fit on the 7 foot by 4 foot spreadsheet, the font has to be smaller than 9. Since the font is not mentioned as anything but the 9 font (unlike the dimensions, which vary article to article, suspicious…), we can assume that with a 9 font, based on my monitor size, that 1 foot = 54 rows long, or 18 columns wide. If you multiply 54 by 7 to get the total names listed in this font size the names come out to 378. So It’s IMPOSSIBLE to fit 500 names on this spreadsheet

this way!!! Now try columns. It is even less, 126 or so. IMPOSSIBLE. Add the police refuting this and the variation of size in articles and you get a NEWSPAPER HOAX designed to make it look like gamers are the cause of the school shooting. If you use the 9 foot value, it STILL isn’t enough for 500 names to fit on the spreadsheet!!!! Even if Lanza Doubled them up, it would make the data

bigger and the size would be off, so it doesn’t matter. It’s STILL A hoax… I can’t believe no one in the gaming community attacked the Newspaper for this… Seriously!!!

So after going to gamepolitics.com last night, I looked in the legislation tab to see if any state had drafted Anti-Violent Game Legislation. Surprisingly, My own state of Massachusetts, was among those states, that drafted draconian anti-video game bills within the last 6 years. Back in 2007, HB 1423 was drafted, it would apparently “restrict violent games to minors”, but that’s not all… No No… That’s not all..

The Bill is so ridiculously draconian that is scares me just as much as the Bill that California Drafted that got Defeated for Unconstitutionality in Brown VS EMA. Like that bill, this one uses the greatly subjective obscenity clause to determine what games would be restricted…. Basically, if the game is offensive to the public, and the judges of the content find it lacks scientific, educational, or literary value, it would be restricted. The problem is if a game is so offensive that it offends the Judges (it seems any violent game with gore would do this, hell even guns in a game offended a co-worker years ago, Doom none the less), they would be so offended that they would say it lacks those values anyway, and therefore would use it against the game and then restrict it to minors.

The real issue is not this but the fact that it uses the restrict word in the wrong way, or in an unclear way. Restrict means to ” to confine or keep within certain often specified limits or selected bounds” according to an online dictionary, so if you use this definition,  the bill makes it illegal to sell games to adults now…. Even worse, the bill fails to even mention the punishments, who will judge the games, punishment (if any) for false judgement based on faked evidence or incorrect evidence or abuse of the judging process. Even if these issues are my imagination, it still uses a subjective system to determine what games are restricted and what ones aren’t.  How would the stores know which ones not to sell…. Like Brown VS EMA, they might end up taking all games off the shelves to prevent losses or lawsuits coming from violations of the law. So therefore this bill would create an effective ban because since stores don’t know what games get restricted till to late, they then end up having to take ALL violent games off the shelves to prevent damages, especially if the bill is abused..

Text of the Bill in question for people wanting to read it In case it gets deleted later for any reason. (a lot of the stuff like this gets deleted suddenly, as of late anyway, such as the Brown vs EMA Amicus Brief, etc)

As of now the Bill is in the House Committee being stalled, but who knows for how long?  This could come to bite my state and my freedom of choices  in the Ass later. I am an Adult! I have the right to choose WHAT GAMES I Buy. I don’t want this bill to backfire and make retailers get rid of violent games in fear like it could.  And since I use online retailers mostly now, who knows how it will effect online retailers in MA, or the gaming industry here. This could be, in theory, Disastrous for gaming in my state…..

This is MY STATE we are talking about here… We don’t do shit like this, uber save the children conservative nonsense here. Not till one of the hack psychologists crazy unproven theories invaded the minds of people like our Mayor,  did this nonsense start, with the Banning of GTA ads on subway systems that don’t have kids in them anyway (from my experience, their too dangerous for kids)…  IF our Mayor ends up allowing this to pass, I will fight it tooth and nail with regular emails to ALL the Representatives and Senators in my State…. I won’t let this go quietly and with out opportunity. I will start a campaign to get people to write EVERYONE in office in MA to oppose this and hopefully it will flood their Mailboxes so bad that they find it unconstitutional.

As of now, the bill is in committee, and who knows if it will be taken out for a vote anytime soon. But still I urge ALL Gamers in Massachusetts to email the Rep’s about this. This is danger waiting to happen for Gaming here… Don’t let this pass, gamers, spread the message, email your Rep’s, send the message below to them to make them see that this is WRONG!!!

Text to email (please us this, don’t write your own)

“As your constituent and as an avid Video Game fan, and also as an anti-censorship person, I oppose HB 1423  due to it’s vague use of the phrase “restricting” in it’s text, and other issues. I know this is an old  bill, but according to gamepolitics.com, it’s still being worked on, and hasn’t completely died, according to  them.It claims to be a bill that will restrict Sales of certain violent video games to adults, but when I didgoogle searches for similar bills in other states, only a few were restrict to adults type bills. Many were  ills to restrict violent games to children… Since I oppose any form of Censorship, I immediately looked  at the Bill’s text, and compared it to others in other states. When looking up the definition of Restrict  online, It seems this bill is actually designed to Restrict sales of violent games to adults, as in a ban  of violent games to adults only. Since the bill’s text is so vague, there is no part that clearly states “stores must not sell games to minors”, so which way is it? Banning games from being sold to minors, or  to Adults…. Based on other bills, it looks like the writer of such a bill Purposely left it out to abuse it for such a purpose, to make it illegal for stores to even sell games to adults…. Thus killing the video game industry in this state.

Other issues I have with it, are how it uses an incredibly biased Obscenity clause that states that if thegame is lacks scientific, literary, or educational value for minors, it is harmful to minors and can’t besold, but since the the people who are deciding this (which it does not state), could simply use theirstandards of what offends them, they can simply say that the game offends them, so therefore it lacks those  standards, and ban it to adults or children…. I feel Indecency and obscenity clauses are to vague and  subjective to use as a test of what should be restricted, banned or both… It’s too easy for someone  else to abuse this, and IMHO, that’s why the author wrote this bill to get an “effective ban” in MA  passed… I just wanted to share my concerns…”

So…. I’ve been on Twitter following the Boston Bombing since it first happened on April 15’th. I suspected someone would try  to blame it on violent games. A preacher from Worcester did, but that doesn’t nearly piss me off as much as this……   Some idiot anti-gamer set up this article DARING to link violent games to an OBVIOUS Terror attack where the perps are Radical Islamic Terrorists, not even gamers and you get a bunch of people trying to link Violent games to the Bombing, Gamers and video game Manufacturers to Terrorists, and worse…. Here is a text link to the comments in question… insert the http:// in front of this address if it does not load:

gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/2013/04/24/should-something-be-done-about-shock-video-games-like-the-boston-marathon-terror-on-the-streets-and-kindergarten-killer/

Notice how all of them IMMEDIATELY assumed the “terror on the streets” game was being sold to kids despite proof that the Industry does not sell violent games to kids…

“To answer your question, Greta, yes. Something should be done about these violent games. They are a form of mind control as they ‘train’ a brain. A child’s brain is not fully developed until his or her early 20s. If they choose to play such games after age 25, then let them choose to do so then. The First Amendment, as I understand it, protects a person’s right to speak freely, even assemble publicly, when done in a peaceable manner. Somewhere along the line manufacturers inserted themselves into the First Amendment, and some profiteering attorney supported them. I don’t recall there being a statement that anyone has a right to manufacture demoralizing and brain training products and sell them to young persons. Has anyone noticed how lax so many parents today are? The children who run a house? Grandparents are raising their grandchildren because mom or dad don’t want to be bothered–and these dear people are tired; they may let things slip because they aren’t aware of what the kids are doing, or perhaps they do know, but need some rest, so they allow it. Let these game makers (and abundantly violent TV and film producers) create their games for their own pleasure. They can sit in their lounge chairs and play/view their lives away. We need to make them feel our opinions of their work in their pocketbooks.”

This is more BS that claims violent games “train kids” when this blog post completely debunks the claim.. There is also the BS claim that kids are running households. This idiot blames THAT on violent games? There is only ONE thing that can cause THAT… BAD PARENTING… Simple as that… This is a BS excuse to support more BS that shows up later in the article…  He also claims that some lawyer and the industry have perverted the 1st amendment/free speech… That’s also BS coming from an anti-gamer idiot..  This shit is being used to attack VIOLENT games after the Boston Bombings?

“It’s not the game makers,it’s the sickos that buy these games and the sicko parents who buy these type of games for their children. If there was no market for these type of disgusting games they would soon stop being mad. Blame society not the game manufacturers.”

Again the nonsense claim the game is being sold to kids… It probably isn’t even being sold. NOT ONE person went out of their way to even remotely prove these games are FREE online games made

by internet idiots and not games sold to kids!!!!  Then this idiot who wrote this quote goes out to say we gamers are all sickos? He’s the sicko!

“The game of this nature is sick and demeaning as well as anyone who plays the game. Yes, this is free speech without respect and dignity to those involved.”

Another fucking idiot claiming gamers are sickos…. Rinse and repeat…

“It’s part of free speech however as others have posted -we should make every effort to ridicule and marginalize the developers, sellers and users of these products.”

Yet another idiot proponent of anti-gamer stereotypes… This sick shit SHOULD not be happening after a Terrorist Attack. NO GAMERS caused this terrorist attack but these people are acting like it’s our fault…

“This is preying upon young innocent lives for what purpose? When trash goes in…trash comes out. And this sickness n violence is being drummed into these young lives and everyones lives 24/7 from the “Entertainment” industry.”

Another complete idiot calling violent games “Trash”….. And putting “Entertainment” in quotes like the Violent games are more than entertainment, like training simulators for terrorists maybe….

“Warped minds that create these games brainwash the minds of those who “enjoy” playing these games. The Lanza boy played violent videogames and then acted them out. The parents of Newtown should be suing the manufacturer of the games that enthralled this mass murderer. Hitting these lowlives in the pocketbook will send a clear message that these violent brainwashing games’ creators will be held financially responsible for the disturbing results of their depravity.”

Another fucking idiot trying to link Sandy Hook to Violent games when there is NO  proof he “Acted them out”… This claim is just made up because there is NO game sold by the Industry where you go around killing kindegardeners…. If there is it isn’t the industries fault that 1 out of 1000’s of games is sick like this…. He certainly wasn’t acting out “Call of Dury” or “Mass Effect” when he committed the massacre. The mere claim that he was is just BS by an anti-gamer.

The anti-gamer shithead then goes on to saying that we need “to hit this lowlifes in the pocketbook” and calls violent games “brainwashing” when they aren’t… REAL brainwashing is done to people like this by religious zealots. This idiot is probably ALREADY brainwashed at a “treatment” center they all use to force people to by zealots that uses Military Discipline to make people zealots… He calls for a lawsuit of violent games makers after Newtown when they weren’t even responsible. Only an idiot would blindly believe such tripe. Idiot doesn’t begin to describe this moron. These kinds of people should be locked up…

“Free speech is a cornerstone of our law and our society, but not all “speech” should be protected and these video games are Exhibit A for what needs to be banned to have any chance of having a civil and well-ordered society. Bryan T. Hodges, bryanhodges@comcast.net”

An idiot calling for the complete ban of violent video games. Oh Jee. He even left his email address. I will not personally send him hate mail, but if anyone reads this and decides to hate mail him, I will definitely not say you shouldn’t. He’s an idiot. And it’s HIS fault he left his email in the comment. He’s asking for it…

“What’s disgusting is that some ‘adults’ play these games with their children.

Of course something should be done, but if they are put on a ,only adults could buy them, Some adult or parent will buy them for kids.

What we have a problem with is too many liberal thoughts in the country today.”

Another moron implying violent games should not even be sold to “adults” (like were not adults but SCHOOL SHOOTERS/TERRORISTS/CHILD MOLESTERS/SATANISTS/any other stupid stereotype we gamers have been called), because “adults” sometimes play “these” violent games with their kids, so now because of that “adults” should not be able to buy these games, and because of this “too many liberal thoughts” are the problem… This moron is clearly a wackjob!!!

“Or better yet, why do people in our society pay money to partake in depraved violence as entertainment?

People who support censorship are not understanding the root problem. If people didn’t buy this junk, no one would be making it. No amount of censorship is going to fix the core problem in our society – it’s going to take a society that shuns depravity, like we once did.”

This idiot is complaining about people “buying this junk” (where junk is violent games AGAIN), and claims that that is the problem and we need to stop this “Depravity”. Like adults buying “Uber violent” games like Call of Duty, Mass Effect, Doom, Hexen, Jedi Knight and other “SUPER Violent Killing games” which the media keeps on scapegoating as the cause of Newtown is depravity now? None of those gamers are “uber violent”. But the media keeps on quoting features from 1 or 2 super violent games like Postal 1-3 and GTA and keeps on saying “most games” are like this so you get idiots like this who think that they are….

“This is pornography with violence being the subject matter. Stop this type of violence. Young minds do not know how to assimilate this mayhem. It is being shown as popular, when it is not. This trash media thrives on the destruction of societal values. Please stop them NOW!”

Another idiot calling violent games “trash” AGAIN…  Asking this “TRASH” to be stopped and (assumingly) their Creators as well because this person FAILS to even mention WHO should be stopped. Another brainwashed fucking idiot.

“It is called indoctrination to blunt the young so that they will be numb when they see death or are apart of it. It is going on in the radical jihad nations. If these video games are not stopped we are going to see more school and other place killings.Indoctrination is not free speech it is like stoking a fire and hoping it won’t burn but it does.”

Ok… So violent games are indoctrination now… Do they make gamers “DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY FUCKING MAGGOT <insert racial slur here> FUCKNUT”… No. Do they sleep deprive people.. Not in normal circumstances… Do they wake you up at 4 am every day after being put to bed at 2 am. No… Do they take the players completely out of their normal life 100% of the time so all they can do is be indoctrinated. NO… Do they do ANYTHING REAL INDOCTRINATION like in Military training camps do.. NO. Because they can’t.. Violent games can’t train anyone.. That requires. 1) Abuse 2) Intimidation 3) Indocrination 4) Removal from normal life and complete

isolation from it.  5) Constant drills, sleep depravation and exhaustion. Games do NONE of this. Who ever is comparing Indoctrination to games has probably been brainwashed to do so and is another fucking brainwashed asshole.

“Violence in the media is what is desensitizing our culture. Hollywood and msm don’t want to take any responsibility for what they market as entertainment – violence for violence sake- they line their pockets at the expense of our youth. They stand by abortion Dr.s as “choice” yet save the baby whales…. They assuage their guilt by “social activism” that suits their self aggrandizing persona”

Even  though I proved at the beginning of this article the Industry doesn’t sell to kids, this idiot goes on and claims violent games are “desensitizing our culture” to violence I assume, but fails to even what they are desensitizing the culture to, Blames hollywood, claims they are making money off of kids, blah, blah, blah, Fuck you! They claim Hollywood supports abortion, so therefore so must gamers and game companies now! Right? Right? Isn’t this what this fucking shithole is implying. So now abortion is something gamers and game companies support… We’re all a bunch of fucking toddler torturing baby killers!!!! OH NOES!!!! No proof whatsoever for such an allegation of pure bullshit is there? Nope. NOT ONE SHRED….

“Free speech is only free when it is harmless. You can not do something without consequences if you hurt someone. These type of things, video games, videos etc, that are promoting violence like this one should not be permitted. These things are giving bad ideas to others to be copy cats and the promotion is giving the wrong message like if it is OK to do those kind of things to others. GOD HELP US. WHY ARE PEOPLE SO WILLING TO DO OTHERS HARM, AND THEN PROMOTE IT AS HARMLESS TOO. SICK.”

Another bullshit claim by an idiot… Saying free speech should not apply if something is called “non harmless” (probably by an idiot because only idiots call violent games harmful…)  He then claims violent games cause “copy cat” murders and more BS…. What an idiot.. But he’s nothing compared to the next moronic turd…

“We cannot afford any more legislation that takes away liberties. People need to step up and make these gamers stop the gore by protest and boycot. Maybe their backgrounds need to be checked to make sure they are not themselves terrorists.”

Ok… So were school shooters (us gamers that is), child molesters, and worse… But this idiot dares to claim that “gamers” are “terrorists” now… One step away from blaming “Gamers” for the Bombings in boston no doubt…  I quote:  “Maybe their backgrounds need to be checked to make sure they are not themselves terrorists.”. Does this idiot REALLY believe gamers are terrorists? Apparently so. So now we, game manufacturers and Terorrists (we are all of the above now) need to be “Boycotted”. What a fucking moron. Anyone who DARES to equate “Gamers” to “Terrorists” is a fucking idiot… Nothing more to say… Just hope this doesn’t spread to more morons who believe everything they hear like 99% of the dumbfuck population of this Country after a Terrorist attack done by NON GAMERS.

“There needs to be a better online system to monitor not only those who created this offensive video game, but also those monsters involved in child porn, drug distribution, etc. We need to prosecute those who are inhumane. ”

Another moron doing the following A) Saying game manufacturers should be monitored like Child Porn creators. B) Implying Child porn is caused by violent gamers like that boykin moron I attacked earlier in the year… What an Idiot…

“These DAMAGED people who put this TRASH out for everyone to see are just as DAMAGED as these two terrorists. Three PD’s who gets three public defenders,stop wasting taxpayers money and put him out of his misery….”

Whoops. Not two sentences later and someone else DARES to blame the Terrorist attacks in Boston on VIOLENT GAMES! What a fucking moron…  And also calls for the execution of whoever “him” is… Could be anyone…

“Personally….I think the game makers should be added to the terrorist watch list.”

Another moron calling game makers “terrorists” DARING to claim we should be put on a “Terrorist” watch list for WHAT? We didn’t do the fucking bombing. 2 RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS from the middle east did. WTF? How are we “terrorists”. These fucking turds can’t give a straight answer can they?

“I take it they are making money on it .. a class action lawsuit by the victims would be good .. .hit them in the pocketbook .. make them defend their sick game.”

Another moron daring to claim that Parents should file a class action lawsuit against the makers of this “sick game”, not even stating what “sick game” it is!!!! It could be any fucking game this moron finds “sick”…. Any!!! Any!!! Another Litigational loser..

Out of 144 stupid comments attacking violent games, only 3 tried to link them to the Boston Bombings, but about 17 more spread bullshit about Gamers, Gaming Companies, and Violent games.. Complete bullshit like this fuels censorship… It’s disgusting.. But what is even more disgusting, is we have “Lowlifes” so paranoid that they must find a scapegoat for a TERRORIST ACT that has a Suspect  in Custody with Charges filed against him, but that isn’t good enough for them.. “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It’s  the violent gamer child molesting Satanic Toaster Terrorists!!!” (Gamers)…. It’s our fault… More bullshit from assholes on the internet. People should NOT BE SCAPEGOATGING games AND Gamers for something they did not do. WE are NOT terrorists, we should NOT be put on “Terror” watch lists… It’s all bullshit…

So I was looking through info on possible scapegoating of Violent games after the Boston Bombings… I searched for “Violent Games” + “Boston Marathon” and came up with nothing… But when I changed “Violent Games” to “Violent Gamers”, something I’ve been doing in recent searches to see if anyone is daring to call all gamers violent, I came up with a link to this lovely site, written by a “crime researcher” quack, who is attempting to link violent games to sandy hook AGAIN!!! But what’s even worse is that this moron is trying to stereotype all gamers as “baby Killers”.  Here is the link to the site, which is text linked.

http://killingkillers.blogspot.com/2012_12_01_archive.html

I quote:

The obsessive video-gamer showed up at the school just as morning classes were commencing dressed as a character from Call of Duty, a single-shooter game that features that same rifle.

Games like Call of Duty are developed and used by the U.S. military as well as many other armed forces for conditioning soldiers to kill. 

Investigators report that baby killer Adam Lanza played these kind of violent videogames “for hours everyday” in a windowless basement of his home, to the apparent exclusion of any other activity.”

Notice how he paints Lanza as An Obsessive video gamer and refuses to even mention mental illness once in this quote. NOT ONCE. He then tries to say that Investigators claimed that the “baby Killer” lanza “Adam Lanza played these kind of violent videogames “for hours everyday” in a windowless basement of his home, to the apparent exclusion of any other activity.”

Where did he get this BS from? He pulled it out from his ass, because this basement claim (which is BS) came from an article which A) Claimed the same thing and B) Quoted the Tabloid article that made up the claim in the first place, that I mentioned above.

Number 2 : “Games like Call of Duty are developed and used by the U.S. military as well as many other armed forces for conditioning soldiers to kill.”


This is complete bullshit.


The military has only made 1 series of games out of over 600, America’s Army. Most are made by gaming studios like Epic, ID, Valve, etc, not Military contractors!! This link disproves the claim he makes that games like this are used by the Armed forces to break down the inhibition to kill. It’s a blog, not written by another “Gamer babykiller”, but by a US Marine Corps Soldier who served time in IRAQ. I quote:


Let me give you some background. I am coming out of a four-year stint in the United States Marine Corps. I spent six months in Afghanistan and two months in Iraq (crossing the Line of Departure a mere 72 hours after the word was given by the President).

While not in a combat unit, every Marine’s primary job is basic rifleman. We are all considered trained enough to put steel on target when the lawful order is given.

Video games are poor training tools. For anything, really. I think the last games I learned from were Sticky Bear Math and Number Munchers.

I’m not aware of any military unit that uses video games to break down the inhibition to kill.

In fact, this breakdown really only occurs in one place: Boot camp.

Boot camp doesn’t even specifically concentrate on the inhibition to kill. Rather, they follow the CIA training manual for brainwashing almost point by point, in order to instill in recruits ‘instant and willing obedience to lawful orders’ – that is what they do. The assumption, of course, is that these orders may be to kill; But they could be to drag a wounded child to safety, or set up a bunker in 100 degree weather, or pull night watch after being up for a 36-hour convoy.

The inhibition to kill can only be broken down by, wait for it . . . killing.

When we were parked on the outskirts of Fallujah and watched as night fell and the Iraqis came out onto the streets, even though our orders were much more liberal than the current Rules of Engagement, there was still hesitation. And this after our convoy had turned around after taking fire at the front.”

Now to ruthlessly BS Filter the rest of the BS this moron types:

With this year’s announcement by U.S. military officials that they plan on redesigning their simulated killer programs to now include “female suicide bombers” in them, and the billion-dollar gaming industry’s morbid penchant for imitation, public attention is also shifting to the role such popular sims play in the recent spate of massacres against unarmed civilians.

Those who’ve studied the negative impact graphicly violent games have on habitual players fear that adding female shooting targets in them will greatly increase the likelihood of more mass gunman targeting women and children. Perhaps even in teams, since these unstable types tend to copycat and are always competing for top scores.

This upcoming Friday has been designated as an international day of mourning and memorium for the Sandy Hook victims. In a self-conscious move this week, major spokesmen for the Gaming community have publicly appealed for a virtual ceasefire in honor of that day.

Researchers note that besides dangerously elevating aggression in participants, these violent videogames are also psychologically addicting, so it’s not known if any  gamers will be able to abide by their leaders’ request, even if they wanted to.”

Number 1, the whole “Scores” thing is BS…. There is a claiming going around that the perpetrators of School shootings, particularly Columbine and Sandy hook killed kids to get a higher score. But here’s the thing. Very Few “Violent” FPS games EVEN HAVE SCORES IN THEM AT ALL. Since doom, the whole concept of “Score” has been rarely used at all, because it takes away from the survival aspect of FPS games… Since then only, the later COD games and Serious Sam have even had Score as a Stat in the games. But even if that weren’t true, the BS claim that the psychotic killers Lanza/Harris/Klebold/etc weren’t killing kids for the “highest” score. In every school shooting, there is always another reason, most of the time swept under the rug or covered up by the FBI. 

In columbine’s case, no one knew the REAL reason till 2012! A freedom of information act revealed that the FBI had been withholding evidence that Harris was raped by the Colorado Sherriffs in an 1998 arrest for bomb making materials, and whole massacre was a botched terrorist attack planned to kill as many kids as possible to get the police to storm the place so they could kill as many cops as they could before going out in a suicidal blaze….. Absolutely nowhere in harris’s writings does he say, directly, or indirectly “Doom is great. Let’s go out and kill kids in CHS to make it more real.” or something like that. All the evidence the media  keeps on bringing out is merely based on internet hoaxes proven by me to be hoaxes in these articles. Article 1 written by me, mentions the “Doom will become reality on april 20’th” hoax virally spread after the Shooting by the media and how it’s based on a Fake Eric Harris Site. There was also a claim that Harris modified Doom to make it into a “School shooting sim” which is BS because the articles spreading this claim claim he was able to do things Doom could have not done in 1999, such as infinite weapons, Friendly AI, etc… I debunked that in article 2.  


The other thing is the BS claim that Women in violent  games will lead to more “baby-killing” gamers killing women and children. This is complete BS, and is backed up by NOT 1 SINGLE FACT…. Number 1, the only “Baby killing Gamer” in History, is…. DRUMROLL… ADAM LANZA. THATS IT. No other gamer has killed young children. There are millions of gamers world wide, only 1 has killed little children. 

The whole claim that little children will get killed by  “baby killing gamers” is just bs to start a moral panic that involves locking up gamers or “treating them” (no doubt by military disciple/electroshock therapy/harassment/sexual abuse) which is being recommended already to “violent” and “nonviolent” mental illness victims, like people with aspbergers. Already BS is being spread about how violent games cause mental illnesses, and if Military discipline and Army boot camp like treatment are being recommended for Aspbergers, then it’s wise to assume it will be used to “treat” the “baby killing” gamers that haven’t committed a crime in their life, nevermind killed a kid. The real issue is that this is being possibly recommended to stop a tiny, less than 1% percentage of gamers from killing babies. 

Another thing. Adam Lanza didn’t even kill babies. Babies = less than 2 years old. He killed pre-schoolers. NONE OF THEM WERE BABIES. They were toddlers. This is scapegoating to make us all look like “baby killers” nothing more. Here is the % of gamers who have killed toddlers. 0.3%. % of Gamers who have Killed babies = 0.001%, based on all the cases I’ve read. The sandy hook shooting doesn’t count. No babies were killed in that. Just toddlers. 

 

More bullshit from the article:

 

In addition, Obama has publicly vowed to open a “meaningful” dialog now about guns and violence, particularly as it pertains to the rising crime wave among the young and these now-commonplace mass assaults.

Discussing discussions is a good start, of course, but advocates for gun control will be the first to say that it’s also a long overdue move, with too many dead having piled up during an inordinate and unjustified delay.

What’s more, if these proposed talks fail to address the role of violent videogames in this surge of violence, and if the billion-dollar gaming industry itself is not also forced to come to the table, this will all be for naught.

Remember, Klebold and Harris, Jared Loughner, James Holmes, Adam Lanza…all these young mass murderers and many, many more just like them were violent video-gamers. All of these dangerous psychopaths methodically trained as expert marksmen via simulated single-shooter programs and a “harmless” little joystick.

Number 1, Klebold and Harris = Psychotic Terrorists. made psychotic by POLICE RAPE covered up by the FBI and the government and BS spread about Doom influencing them was the only proof found. This BS was put on fake websites and other places and has been debunked…

Jared Loughner = A psycho. NO MENTION of violent games mentioned on the Wikipedia page mentioning him…

James Holms = Militant Terrorist type. Played Fucking Guitar Hero. A guitar game. NONVIOLENT.

Adam Lanza = Psycho who killed young children.

And for the claim that “many other mass killers” played violent games, this is BS too. Only one other did, and he was an Anti-Islam Extremist Hate mongerer from Norway. Which do you think triggered his rampage, Hate mongering, or playing World of Warcraft… HMMM, There are no others!!!! Even if there were it would be less than 10% of the millions of gamers who are killers.. That means 90-95% ARE NOT KILLERS and this claim therefore is BULLSHIT.

This is the problem I’ve been keeping on talking about, Ad Nauseum. There is too much stereotyping of Gamers as killers, School Shooters, etc. But this is much worse then that… This takes it to a new level. We’re now Baby Killers. That’s right…. Fucking “Baby” Killers. Even Though Adam Lanza didn’t even kill one baby. Just a bunch of pre-schoolers. What have we done to deserve this title? 99% of the gaming population has done NOTHING to deserve this. This moron writes his own books and keeps on stereotyping us as the problem. We’re not.

 

 

Incidentally, the Denverpost article I mentioned in my last post, wasn’t something I first read when I found it. It was the first article I read in the group way back in 1999.  This was way before I became a Pro-Debunking-Nonsense Blogger and was a member of the Doom Community on Doom Central the big doom fan site then.  I was hearing every single claim every news paper was making about Doom after the School shooting and how bogus a lot were, like Doom had “Pipebombs” (Harris made several), Doom “allowed people to kill kids”, and how Harris and klebold were playing “Doom in God Mode” when they committed the Massacre in 99.   I then read the Denverpost article and got immediately disgusted because I knew how false the other articles were, I was convinced this was false too, I couldn’t prove it though..

 

 

 

So I signed up to their “your voice” forum and made a big complaint on the columbine massacre section saying basically “Doom is being scapegoated by the media, and I can’t stand it, they are making utter BS to demonize it, nor can I stand how  people in schools are being put in detention for merely Playing Doom, It did not cause Columbine!”. However what would transpire next, would reveal to me how idiotic the populace of this small forum in Colorado were. It became apparent that these people on the forum Blindly beleived that Doom caused Columbine. I was insulted and attacked by an Anonymous Internet troll for 3 months along with 5-6 other gamers all trying to defend the game on the forum.  This troll worked by a very specific and obnoxious formula. He would single out posts he didn’t like and quoted them sentence by sentence replying to each quoted sentence with insults, death threats, constant curses and sexual innuendo, and worse… This kept on happening for hours each day from may to august 1999.  The person threatened to “Crack my Skull Open” for merely Stating that “kids being killed should not lead to the rights of adults to buy and play violent games”. This was a rude response to the quote said by the troll “All of you value your video games over the lives of the victims”. But since the troll called us “Gamer Shitheads” this response of mine was necessary, because this person was insulting any gamers right and left on the forum. And when he called all of us “Gamer Shitheads” he personally insulted me too.  The troll also told me to:

 

“Crawl up your mothers fly infested Cunt”,  “your mother should have aborted you with a coat hangar!!!” and much worse… The moderator of the forum did nothing. Didn’t even care. Fucking asshole! The only post that was deleted was the trolls last one, which I will get into later. The fact I was being insulted, threatened, meant nothing to these fucking idiots on the forum and the newspaper. They didn’t care. To them we were all like Eric Harris or worse…

 

By this point the death threats and worse made me want to get revenge. And that’s what I did. I got the Doom Community I was in to fight for me on their forum. We were gonna make that forum go insane for 3 months.  I got my best friend from High School, a guy I will only call “Hitman213”. to sign up to fight as well. He came first and said that video games do not cause real violence, and something similar. Soon the troll demanded he change to his real name because the name “Hitman213” offended the memories of the victims. So he went back to his real name and mercilessly fought this troll but it took 3 months to get this fucking moron to shut up.  Soon a whole bunch of idiotic posters from the forum kept attacking us for “not saying our respects”. To them merely defending Doom was saying “Rachel Scott deserved to Die!” or something equally heinous.  When A Guy named Gokuma from the Doom Central or Doom Nation Forums immediately followed Hitman213 in claiming “Video games don’t cause violence, it’s BS”. But the Troll immediately said “WTF! You’re all the same person with different accounts! You are the same person as Hitman213!!” It’s like this person believed there were no gamers outside Hitman213 and me and we were all signing up with different accounts  to defend doom. It was hilarious then and in a way it still is, but the person was clearly a complete paranoid wackjob..

 

 

They were literally zealots who believed everything they heard at face value, including the “Hack Psychologists Claims”. The troll cited these claims. Then one of the Doom Forum guys “Gokuma” stated that psychologists are Charlatans and that Psychiatrists are a lot more credible.  This did not debunk the claim though so the troll said “That’s nonsense you Gamer Shitheads are trying to pan to defend your game!!!”

Right around then another Doom Forum Guy formed a new Account “Dr. Mingels”, and said “Video Games actually have positive effects on kids”. Immediately people made fun of him and called him “Dr. Mengelle” (Like in the Nazi War Criminal Sicko Butcherer). These people were likening Gamers to Fucking Nazi butchers? WTF! The Whole forum laughed at this. Seriously…

 

We had a total of 6 guys on the forum, who weren’t assholes, Me (who had backed out due to emotional damage, not kidding), Hitman213, Gokuma, the guy that posted as “Dr. Mingels” who kept on trying to reason, uselessly with the idiots,  Lets just call him Dan. With us we had a video gamer from the Forum “Mostly Harmless”, and another guy in the Doom Community. Versus us were the troll, his actress friend, and some other posters. One was always there but was on the First Troll’s side and actually “filled in for him” when he was gone. One showed up later complaining on how all gamers on the forum were idiots and we spent “all day twittling with our joysticks”, insulting us more. The thing kept on going on. At One Point the Troll said “all the violence in the articles on DPO (showing off the massacre) is proof violent games were involved”.  The troll then said “you all made fun of the columbine shooting victims”, blah blah blah, for defending doom.  Then the final post by the troll went up “I have enough evidence to prove gamers get violent”, or something quite “lawyerly” like that.  Around then my friend is like “we need to know who this idiot is!” and started telling me about reverse email lookups. We decided to try a few. None told us any personal info. The troll then eventually shut up and disappeared, 6 months after it began.

 

But that last post was deleted no more than 5 minutes after it was posted. I found that very suspicious. It sounded like the person was a lawyer gathering evidence against gamers. The troll did  have a lawyers email address, justicemail.com, “email for the law community”. Some lawyer looking for clients did post on the forum. Forget his name. Could they be the same person? I don’t know.  For years I tried 100’s of different reverse email lookups. None of the returned any results. In 2006 however, I found a similar poster on Gamepolitics.com, a moronic anti-video games activist attacking gamers, calling them “druggies”. This person was more like the person who said “All gamers twittle with their joysticks all long” then the initial “lawyer” troll on the forum back in 1999. But this whole experience of the idiocy surrounding the school Massacre on the Forums and in Colorado is what inspired me to write blog posts debunking nonsense spread about violent games. The troll cited 2 nonsense claims, the “video games break down the inhibition to kill” one and the “Doom Will become Reality” one. I debunked both on my Debunking Other Nonsense blog, which debunked many many claims since 2011 almost on a daily basis.  The whole stereotype of “Gamers” being violent psychos pisses me off, and so do all the bogus “Death Threat” claims anti-violent games activists keep saying (how gamers keep threatening their lives), because pro-video game violence trolls do the same thing. The nonsense this troll was saying, threatening to kill me, crack my skull open, threatening to “kick gokuma’s ass” and more is proof. I really don’t like looking back at this. We were ALL assholes on this forum. I’m not really proud of it.  The kind of people who were attacking Games in colorado were like this, apparently. These people refused to believe anything but the “trustworthy” sources that made up crap. We were all being insulted for merely being Video Game players, by almost everyone on the forum for months on end. Being Compared to Nazi Butcherer? It doesn’t get any lower than that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Checking Gamepolitics today I learned the truth about Obama’s Violent game’s conference between the ECA and the Senators, hosted by Joe Biden. According to the ECA, the whole thing didn’t go down well and the senators still blindly believe “Video games cause violence”. I quote:

Senators are convinced that there’s a connection between video games and violence. One has even said that a proposed study is simply “laying the groundwork for new regulations on video games.” We know that’s not true – so write to them today.

Yes, even when presented with the facts that violent crimes have decreased since 1980, while video game sales have increased, and that other nations that consume more video games than the United States don’t see the same level of violence, those we talked to pressed forward with the need to legislate video games and waste money to find a connection between games and violence we know doesn’t exist. These Senators believe that playing games leads to real world violence. They have even gone so far to say in private discussions they disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision that video games are free speech.

We’re not going to take these insults and lies. Video games don’t lead to violence and are protected free speech. That’s reality. We need gamers to speak up and tell Congress this.Write to your elected officials and then spread this action everywhere you can.

This year is going to be a rough one. No matter how many facts we present, folks seem to want to stick to their fantasy that we gamers are time bombs waiting to go off. It’s insulting to me, it’s insulting to you, it’s insulting to us and just not true. Take action now.

Keep on gaming,”

 

 

This is, Frankly Disgusting… Number 1) None of these senators even care that people don’t want video games regulated,  As gamers we have to stop this mess NOW. We can do it. We need to mail our Rep’s and Our Senators, but their message refuses to show the real issues, the media fabrications, the nonsense, the real reason behind school shootings.  The Representatives will assume the default message is  just Industry Rhetoric. Why would they listen to it? You must send them a much more detailed message like the one I have put below. One that shows the scapegoating by the media and how violent games have nothing to do with real crime. This is really important.  My message is a lot longer than theirs but covers a lot of stuff that very few people know about but is all true and people simply are not talking about it. If people want to use this message, go ahead. Edit it and choose the parts you agree or disagree with if you want, but make sure to tell them that A) Violent media studies never have proven violent crime is a result,  and that B) Special interest groups in the CDC Study will try to hijack it with hoaxes, for extremist groups did that before at the Supreme Court, quoting the “Doom will Become Reality Hoax”, which was actually not on Harris’s real site but a fake site made after Columbine.

This is really important. This could be like the columbine moral panic on “Doom” times 5 if you don’t act… Seriously.

Title : “Regulating Violent games solves nothing!”

“As your Constituent, I would like you to know that I am not happy about all the scapegoating happening surrounding violent games by the Government, and if you don’t know this already, the scapegoating has been going on for over 10 years (since Paducah!), and it continues without anything to legally stop it.

Most comes from the media who are fueled by right wing extremist groups who are pro censorship such as the The Eagle Forum, the Parents Television Councel and others. For years they have been sending people on to talk shows especially right after school shootings, to make up utter lies about violent games such as the “fact” violent games make kids violent, the “fact” violent games break down the inhibition to kill, and the “fact” that violent games are military training tools. None of these are true.

The truth is that, video games don’t make anyone violent, no study has ever been done even linking video games to violence, the aggression studies have been misquoted by people with anti-video game agendas on talk shows as proof they cause violence, without proving which studies they are talking about. One was a guy who was trying to sell a book. The other guy is a Defense Attorney for Murderers who gets them all to say “Video games made me do it” and is trying to get people to believe it, so he can win as much cases as possible. In fact no study has ever linked video games to Violence at all. Why do we need a study to link them now?

The Link between Adam Lanza and the Video game “Call of Duty” was based on 1 UK Tabloid basically saying “This kid lived in the basement (a video gamer stereotype), and had a computer. He had posters of lots of tanks and old fashioned Military Weapons. Since Call of Duty Players can name a lot of old fashioned weapons, he must be a Call of Duty Fan!”.  This all came from a “plumber” who visited the house. This article doesn’t prove he played call of duty, but then 25 newspapers all Quoted this plumbers words as proof he was obsessed with Call of Duty and some even said Call of Duty made him commit the Massacre. See the nonsense the Media Spreads? Millions of people now believe, that Call of Duty caused Sandy Hook. But it’s not true.

The same thing Happened after Columbine. Some unknown party made a fake Eric Harris Aol Site with a page that said “The fires will go off in the 21’st, Eric harris Hates you all, Doom will become reality!”.  This spread around to people and then the media quoted the “Doom will Become Reality” part and immediately everyone thought Doom Triggered the Massacre. Only Problem is that Harris never wrote these words, the site was made on April 21’st. It was proven by he FBI. But no one listened. One News article verifying that it was a fake Aol Site was taken down to cover it up by someone…. The media makes up bogus claims right and left about violent games. FOX News hired a fake hack psychologist to say “Bulletstorm causes rape because Rape is a violent crime, and since Bulletstorm is a violent game, it has caused rape!”. Millions Believed this.  A preacher recently said at a public function of some sort, that “Pornography releases Endorphins, it’s like a cocaine High, the more you view pornography the more you need that high, till Heterosexual Porn doesn’t satisfy you anymore, you then jump to Homosexual Porn, then to Bestiality or then to Pedophilia. Look at all the Rapists and Child Molesters who said they were addicted to Porn. These Violent Video games are the same way”. He basically said it in a way to make some people think Violent games lead to child molestation.   In the Columbine case, the Hoaxed page was used as evidence in the Supreme court case EMA Vs Brown. It was submitted by a Right wing pro-family Group who is anti-violent games. I fear some similar group will use this or other bogus claims (imagine if they use the Child Molestation one…..), in the upcoming CDC study as evidence… This must not happen. It’s not true and things like this could lead to Regulation when no evidence of a problem exists…

Legislating violent games will not cause Tragic School Shootings to stop. Doom didn’t have anything to even do with Columbine. The CHS Massacre was a revenge crime against the police in Colorado, and according to a freedom of information act request for documents the FBI was keeping secret,

Eric Harris was Raped by the Police in an arrest in 1998. This triggered the revenge crime, Not Doom.

We still don’t know why Adam Lanza killed 26 people. Why jump to conclusions till a real investigation gets done?

Thank you for your time and consideration.”

For years, I have been seeing BS comments on newspaper articles that attack video games for controversial reasons such as causing school shootings, violent content, etc. Calling violent games “trash”, “junk” or “garbage” is a common one I have seen thousands of times since 1999. Always being bugged by crap excuses like this and people saying crap about gamers, I committed myself to studying just how many of the comments from articles I found, could be considered inflammatory toward gamers, games, the industry, and most important, spread lies about violent games. The results were quite shocking, to say the least…

So I embarked on this study last year. The total results  from part 7  published in this old article,  and the details are cited below… Part 6 is available here as well. (The first 5 out of 7 were deleted due to possible libel complaints down the road… I wanted to avoid that, but the specific comment types were recorded in another post online, but that was accidentally deleted last night)



I am continuing my study into the nature of comments attacking violent games on articles in newspaper sites online. By definition the comments must fit these categories to be considered ‘attacking violent games’…

A) Spread lies about violent games

A2) Making up new lies about violent games .

B) Call for games to be banned outright

C) Call for games to be restricted to adults

D) Enforce negative gamer stereotypes

D2) Shows dislike, hate, or a grudge towards gamers.

E) A Bias towards gaming, such that the person commenting thinks games don’t deserve 1st amendment

protection,  the industry is marketing “trash” to my kids, etc.

F) Not sure what violence effects on kids are a restriction might be in order…

G) Attacking the ESRB due to some flawed thing like the FTC study or the fact ‘my 9 year old’ could get bulletstorm.

H) Wants violent game manufacturers sued or games boycotted.

The Previous 6 parts of the study found that, out of 77 comments, 57% were spreading lies about violent games, 31% had a clear bias towards violent games, 7% wanted violent games banned, or violent game makers sued, and 4% wanted violent games restricted to adults.

 

Results:

Out of all 97 comments in parts 1-7, 64 are spreading lies about violent games. That’s 65%

Out of 97 comments in parts 1-7, 26 have clear bias towards violent games, violent gaming companies, or the industry. That’s 26%

Out of 97 comments, 5 wanted violent games banned, and 5 more wanted the companies that make these game sued. that’s dropped to 5% for each.  3% wanted violent games restricted to adults.

Out of 97 comments, 7 made up totally new lies about violent games. that’s 7%. It’s small but still significant that this is happening.

Out of 97 comments, 4 enforced negative gamer stereotypes.  (4%)

Out of 97 comments,  4 showed a clear hate or dislike towards gamers. (4%).

 

Lies that are made up from the blue seem to be getting more popular in the last few articles. These lies are brand new, and are being spread by commenters. They are not from various news articles, or psychologists. These ones are troubling. Who would gain from complete nonsense being spread about a violent game by people who knowingly spread these lies that they know are not true? If you make up a total nonsense claim about a violent game you know you haven’t heard before, you have to know it’s a lie… Right? So who would gain?

Do anti-gamers sign up under fake names and spread more lies?

I can’t say. But these lies seem to hint at that. These aren’t the things I have heard from the so-called “experts” on media violence. These are totally new to me….  And they are false… But…  Do we really have a generation of libeling right wing anti-violent games groups hiring members to sign up with fake names to make up BS claims about violent games and post them in comments? I think we do. But I can’t prove it. But if they ARE doing this… It is VERY alarming… I will keep track of these lies that seem to be made up by commenters to see if others repeat them in other articles. I have an idea to see how many people are gullible enough to believe nonsense that is spread. More on it later….”

Now to read the worst of the comments and my response (if I responded to it in the original surveys at all):

 

(A certain comment, quoted from part 6)

“And it games cause violence, so be it. If a gamer tries to be violent with you, remember this one rule of thumb, so to speak. Since gamers spend a lot of time inside playing games, they are physically weak. As long as you can avoid their powerful, unnaturally strong thumbs, you should be able to subdue them.”

Pitiful. Who in the hell actually thinks that “violent gamers” should be “subdued”. Someone who hates gamers who think gamers cause school shootings, like that idiot who threatened to kill me on the newspaper forum back in 1999 after Columbine. This goes beyond a mere perpetrating anti-gamer stereotypes and goes to wanting them physically hurt. Is this a trend? First we’re bullies, and now we need to be “Subdued”. Moronic.

“others are using pseudo facts to support their bias towards games in the guise of anti-censorship”.

 

“games have ‘passive and casual avatar rape and murder’ in them”  

 

2 Words : Custer’s Revenge. 1989! Stop making this damn fake claim of rape simulators up… It’s idiotic. These people read biased articles that keep putting that lie in the game and everyone believes this  tripe. It’s ridiculous.

“Remember when the cigarette companies kept saying that no one had “proven” that cigarettes CAUSE cancer? So we continued to let the ads run where all the kids could see them. Lots of people died. Has it yet been scientifically proven that cigarettes cause cancer? Do you believe they do anyway?

Here’s the future of gaming: TVs as big as your entire living room wall. Life size enemies. Realistic wireless game guns with a loud bang and a huge kick. Maybe actual gun makers will make a wireless game clip that you can pop in the real gun where the bullet clip goes. Maybe someone will make an accessory that throws fake blood all over you when you shoot a game enemy at close range.

That’s OK, because no one has scientifically proven that violent games make the players more prone to violence. Until they do, let the carnage continue! “

Now you can see the idiocy being spread by commenters and how many comments attacking violent games are filled with anti-gamer stereotypes, hate towards gamers, games, the industry, etc, and how much they spread complete lies, fabrications, all designed to make violent games look bad after a school shooting. Every time I heard the media using fake claims like “violent games make kids violent/aggressive”, “violent games are used in the military to break down the inhibition to kill”, “violent games link to real life violence is greater than cigarettes link to cancer”, “Violent games are being marketed to kids”, “violent games are recruitment tools”, “violent games that allow you to rape and pee on people”, “violent games that allow you to stalk virtual women and rape them”, “violent games are training tools”, etc, I always here at least 1 commenter per article respreading them, and in some of the claims, you get “special anonymous advertisers” repeatedly and maliciously advertising the book for the author who made up the “video games are being used in the military to break down the inhibition to kill” BS claim, on talk shows after Columbine, a Hack Psychologist. You also get TONS of comments, on how gamers are psychopaths, sociopaths, how gamers should be subdued, how we’re “gamer shitheads”, how we are “gamer druggies”, how gamers are all potential school shooters, and much worse. It’s a real problem, because the exact same claims made about gamers being sociopaths/potential school shooters/violent people were also made by certain anti-gaming fundies on newspapers as well, after 1 or 2 immature gamers threatened their lives…. Being a death threat victim myself from similar people to the people  who claim they are being threatened (and multiple ones claim they did, without proof of course), it makes them look like complete hypocrites, because they unknowingly (or knowingly) support people who intentionally make other peoples lives miserable on message boards just to prove “gamers get violent”, as  the moron troll on the message board of a newspaper did to multiple gamers 24/7 for 3 months, and said “I have enough evidence that gamers get violent” (the responses to their death threats probably), has been swept under the rug and covered up. It’s pathetic. The fact that there are people out there that think all gamers are sociopath’s because of people like Eric Harris, or any other damn reason, I don’t give a fuck, is sick in itself….  I know at least 10 guys who have played video games before, 5 were serious gamers, NONE were sociopaths. Maybe 1 or 2 gamers are “sociopaths” but that’s just a goddamn coincidence, not proof that games take completely normal children and turn them into sociopaths… Sheesh..

 

 

 

 

Now to show off comments making complete NEW lies up, all completely false, but apparently some people besides wackos in anti-gamer right wing religious groups like to make up false claims about violent games…

 

“But the videos in question, which the court ruled that kids can see, allows them to virtually stalk, beat, rape, and defile virtual women in a range of perverse and degrading ways. That is purely sick”

THERE ARE NO GAMES THAT ALLOW PEOPLE TO DO THESE THINGS….

 

Source : http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/07/07/sex-and-the-supremes/

“It’s offensive and embarrassing the Supreme Court will afford murder in all its contexts—self-defense, revenge, military mission, zombie killer, mobster—and variety–disembowelment, decapitation, abassination, guns, chainsaws—more protection that sex.”

Most of these things aren’t even murder…… Only assassination, mobster are… The rest are either military combat, “self-defense”, or combat…. how is “zombie killer” murder? Idiots like this astound me. Especially when they bring up disembowelment, and and decapitation, which are rare in most violent games!

“1 comment of type A2) Making up new lies about violent games – Claims violent games as training tools to recruit military at young age, says violent games ‘permanently burn memories’ into the minds of children, blah-blah blah… Common. Back up your crap. You can’t therefore it’s a lie.”

1 Comment of type A2) Making up new lies about violent games – Claims violent games and action movies have too much things happening at once, overloading the brain, causing ‘anti-social behavior’ in kids. WTF?

“But the videos in question, which the court ruled that kids can see, allows them to virtually stalk, beat, rape, and defile virtual women in a range of perverse and degrading ways. That is purely sick”




“The Commenter Claims just because he drove around for days and because of the length, he was forced to automatically do things without knowing he did them, the ‘kids that play games 18,20,24 hours a day will go into kill mode!’ Is this another hack psychologist worshipper unknowingly or knowingly advertising his best seller?”



Now they are making up utter crap about games in comments…. Some of these comments seem like something a moron in a right wing pro-censorship group would say, like the “perminantly burn memories”, and “overloading the brain”, and the “going into kill mode” ones…  In my honest opinion we have a bunch of pro-censorship morons both saying things like this, all completely made up to the media, especially after school shootings, and also on forums with fake names. I can’t prove it, but those 3 comments are too suspicious to ignore, in light of all the very similar nonsense made up claims anti-gamers keep on making on talk shows, newspapers, etc after a school shooting. I have heard every single goddamned fake claim being made up about violent games by the anti-gamer right wing morons. I know them all by heart… These ones are new to me… What actual gain would a normal person have to actually post some claim they made up to make games look bad on a message board? None. Now what gain would a right wing anti-gaming moron from one of  those anti-gaming groups that keep spreading crap about violent games in the media, have to post something like this on forums? More people could believe the lies they post, and their claims could be spread to other forums. It all spirals out of control when one person online says one fake claim, others repost it quite quickly, everyone believes it because people today have been brainwashed to believe everything they hear.  This effect, greatly aids such right wing violent game censors, trust me it does..


This whole spread of lies is, IMHO, part of a much bigger scheme to get violent games banned for 1 reason, they offend religious right nutjobs.  There is evidence to suggest in many places that the media makes up utter crap about violent games, and the politicians believe it. But that isn’t enough to get a ban to happen, because they need faked evidence to sway the supreme court, to fight against a claim of unconstitutionality. Faked evidence in the form of hoaxes were spread in April/May 1999 and in an Amicus Brief done by a right wing pro-family group, these hoaxes were cited as evidence to prove violent games make people violent…. This group has been known to recycle 2 very false claims about violent games over and over again, the claims that games have “decapitation of prostitutes” and “sodomizing victims with broomsticks”. This groups claims cannot be true, because research done by me on my wordpress blog revealed how fake these 2 claims are.  

This whole thing is been engineered to create the violent game bans the censor/anti-gamers want…. The thing is that the media spreading lies and hoaxes being made by the media and others are being used to hijack the supreme court now…. You then add in justices who are for violent games through the election of a conservative christian president (like the candidate who supports a complete game ban), and what’s to stop the supreme court from having a hung jury (and going back to the law that was passed before they looked at it on grounds of unconstitutionality), or even finding it constitutional via faked evidence in Amicus Briefs and 4 justices who support the idea of a violent games ban. This could happen if you add these 2 things in, the faked evidence in Amicus briefs and new justices who support bans… It’s scary… Something must be done about it and the lies being spread… More on that for another article or video… Stay tuned gamers
