Posts Tagged ‘Sandy Hook’

Lo and behold the BS over sandy hook has not stopped, 2 years later! A news article claiming a massive 7-by-4 foot “gamer score sheet” spreadsheet detailing 500 previous murders weapons and kill counts is being used to attack the gaming industry now.  The supposed spreadsheet, which was 7 by 4 feet and had 500 names on it, could not have existed due to the fact that at a 9 font (it was mentioned it had a 9 font) it is impossible to fit 500 names on a spreadsheet that big. (my previous post goes into details on this).

 

This claim has been cited on Dozens of sites, all calling it a “gamer score sheet”. It’s disgusting.

 

What is really annoying is that the claim is A) Being called a “Score sheet” by many people, thus attacking the Gaming Industry, and B) Dozens of sites are citing this claim as if it were real, and even worse C) The official investigation claims it’s real as well! It’s disgusting really.

 

 

Gamers don’t compete for “real life scores” by killing real people. Mentally deficient terrorists (harris /klebold)/Gun Nuts(lanza)/anti-religious terrorists(norway shooter) do! You don’t see real gamers killing people because gamers are people just like any other person and usually don’t do something like that. In fact the odds of gamers killing people the year of the Sandy Hook Massacre are so low that it isn’t funny. There were 211,000,000 Gamers word wide that year. Only 2 killed. Only 2. That’s 0%! Meanwhile 40% of smokers get lung cancer. These “newspapers” and “news sites” are using Hoaxed Evidence to attack violent games Again! And it doesn’t just attack games. They attack gamers too. Every single one of the articles calling it a “score sheet” has unknowingly attacked gamers. The Lupica article attacked gamers, Made up BS claiming the massacre was planned as if Lanza was playing a violent game, mentioned BS about a “Code of a Gamer” that made it preferable to kill yourself in a real life, which is BS, and worse. These “journalists” should all be Arrested for spreading Hate Speech.

 

And I  can’t believe the State of Connecticut would use Hoaxed Evidence in a Report. That’s a real problem, although not as bad as the “gamer score sheet” BS, it still is stupid. Since this “evidence” attacks gamers by default, so does the report now. Connecticut decides to attack gamers in an official report on the shooting? What’s next. blaming us for the shooting? I wouldn’t be surprised if BS like that was spread by them, I really wouldn’t, because their attorney General was whining about games being sold where you can rape people in them (they haven’t existed since 1984). I totally despise Connecticut for the Crap they are pulling off.

 

It’s really disgusting, and it must stop!

 

 

 

 

 

For years, news writers have been claiming Adam Lanza created a massive 7 by 4 foot spreadsheet detailing previous killers murders. The article that it  first was mentioned in had massive anti-gamer stereotyping in it, claimed it as a “gamer score sheet”, mentioned a bullshit “code of a gamer” which says it’s preferable to kill  yourself then to be caught, and other nonsense.

 

The police and the state of Connecticut have been massively anti-gaming from the get go, back to the time of Senator Lie-Berman’s BS. It’s no surprise they are using this against gamers, but I still don’t like it. The article stereotypes gamers as murderers, and the police are directly behind the nonsense in that article. Nonsense? Well according to me, this spreadsheet cannot exist.

 

Why?

 

The spreadsheet supposedly is 7 feet by 4 feet, written in a 9 font, and contains 500 murders in the columns. I looked at a spreadsheet made in Open Office (identical to Excel in everything but name) and found out that with a 9 font, 1 inch equaled 5 columns. Multiply that by 12 to get columns in a foot and you get 60. Multiply that by 7 and you get only 420 columns. This spreadsheet is impossible! It cannot fit 500 names in it. Therefore, it can’t be real.

 

It’s BS and the official investigation claims it’s real. The state of Connecticut is using faked evidence to attack games again. And they are stereotyping gamers as murders when only 2 out of 211,000,000 gamers (0% of gamers) have killed people in 2012.  It’s complete BS and it must stop.

 

It’s stupid that Connecticut is doing this. Their Report is a farce. It never mentions why he killed

those people in the school. It only claims he was a gamer and uses that as a stereotype to attack the millions of gamers who haven’t killed anyone. Bullshit like this must be stopped people!

 

 

I am writing this article to express what I have been thinking behind the scenes of this war against violence in entertainment for years… I have been collecting evidence, looking at claims, even going deep inside conspiracy theory circles on Sandy Hook, Columbine, Marathon Bombing and more.  Until Sandy Hook, I never believed one shred of the conspiracy nonsense, but now I don’t know what I believe…. But I still believe one thing that is quite controversial and it’s based on tons of backed up evidence… That there is a conspiracy in this government going on since 1997 to get violent games banned after a massacre happens using fake evidence, media yellow journalism, government intervention, dozens of not to be trusted studies, and other things as well. It’s a reality to me and I want to explain why I believe this, and why you should to. Especially if you are a gamer.

 

Lets start at the crimes themselves that lead to moral panics surrounding youth violence and entertainment violence, columbine and sandy hook especially. Marathon bombing and aurora aren’t so big in this but there have been one or two people spreading lies after them so they are in the background.   If you look behind the scenes, ignoring ALL the media’s claims about such crimes and go to conspiracy circles, you get tons of evidence to suggest such crimes are engineered. This helps to link this to a conspiracy but doesn’t proof it’s part of the conspiracy.   In Sandy Hook’s case, it’s been proven by the Social security that Adam lanza died 1 day before the massacre. What would this mean for the idea of a conspiracy, well, for one thing, if what social security says IS true, it makes it IMPOSSIBLE for Lanza to be the killer, so someone else must be the killer instead… So since this someone else hasn’t even been investigated AT ALL by the government after  the killing (they REFUSE to investigate the possibility of the governments involvement), we have to assume they are in on it.     In columbine’s case, there are TONS of student evidence to suggest more than Harris and Klebold were involved, at least 6 other people where never caught in columbine… A white man throwing bombs, a man with acne that does not look like either of the reported shooters, and more. Who are these people? Since the government never once investigated this, and the FBI has been proven to withhold evidence on the crime,  how do we know the government isn’t involved in this at all. In sandy hooks case, there is also a claim of a second shooter, the police “investigated” but this guy was let go later. All of this leads to the possibility the government is involved in BOTH crimes….

 

But the real proof of the conspiracy lies somewhere else, in the investigation of nonsense spread after the school shootings themselves by both known and Unknown parties.  This nonsense is almost always of an anti-gaming nature, making it look like the shooter was solely influenced by violent games.  I did several articles discussing hoaxes perpetrated by unknown parties that seem to be used  to cause an outcry against violent games and even in the Supreme court to hijack EMA vs Brown. Such hoaxes are quite devious and NO one has even investigated and punished the perpetrators of these, especially the “Doom will become Reality” hoax. Supposedly Harris Said Doom Will Become Reality on his website. But the page was not his site, it was uploaded on April 21, 1999, one day after the massacre and It was proven by the FBI to be Fake later. But the sheer amount of attack sites, sites ran by extremist groups, all hell bent on making violent games look bad after columbine, Especially Doom, have used this claim as proof that doom caused Columbine. Later on a news article on some website said this site was not Harris’s Real AOL page but a fake page, but later on this site was simply taken off line!! A coverup?

 

 

Even more Sinister, the Conspiracy idea is brought further to light with the Newspaper articles of 1999 that claim Harris modified Doom to use in training for the massacre. Three articles all basically said the same basic premise, A Hate site tracking group found a modified version of Doom on harris’s Site. But each article had different, contradictory features, some not even possible to even Do in Doom in 1999.  One said that this modified version had 2 shooters, infinite ammo, and the  first shooter who ran out of Ammo died first (An Impossibility to do with doom in 1999!), another article took this last part out and claimed the version had infinite weapons, ammo, 2 shooters, and begging students saying a quote. Then Denverpost ran a similar article without these modified features mentioned but  the quote was Changed, and the way it was said was also changed, but all three articles mention  the same hate site tracking group, even going so far to quote their members, but when I did searches for this groups corroboration of this version on their website, I could not find it!

My article on this goes into this in more detail for people who are more interested in this part. It’s a long read but interesting anyway..  The real issue, is like the “Doom Will become Reality” Hoax, this has also been used on dozens of dozens of attack sites to demean the industry after the Industry, even though it’s fake!  It was also used in the EMA vs Brown Hijacking mentioned above as well.

 

Doing research into the nonsense studies that attempt to prove violent games cause real life violence, you get evidence of groups like the Center for Successful Parenting wanting to “change” culture to get rid of the violence (to ban it really), and earlier studies had .PDF files online that mentioned previous studies had used Electroshock therapy to bias their results, only on the kids who played violent  games in the study to boot. But later on, searching for this .PDF file in the same exact search, showed that it was deleted! So was the Amicus Brief that cited the 2 hoaxes. It was taken down too, the link that worked during Brown VS EMA, all of the sudden was taken down and there was no way to back up the claim that they used fake evidence besides my own blog saying it was. I never even bothered screenshotting the Amicus brief in question, not knowing it would be taken down. Conspiracy?

 

 

In Sandy Hook’s case the Media nonsense was almost as bad.  Right after the massacre, Adam Lanza’s brother Ryan was identified as the shooter.  When he supposedly liked Mass Effect’s Page on Facebook, a bunch of Religious Zealot trolls attacked the site to try to flood it in an attempt to take it down while harassing gamers with religious hate threats (“Burn in hell”, etc). The thing is none of these trolls are even on Facebook, I checked, looking for any of these attackers, and ALL Their accounts were nonexistent. It’s like a certain mid western religious zealot/pro family/anti freedom/gaming group used a bunch of fake accounts to take down Mass Effect’s Site….. No investigation was done into this…. More Ammo to prove a Conspiracy.

 

Even after that, when the guardian, a tabloid from England ran an article that Attempted to prove that Adam Lanza Played Call of Duty , but Failed, despite this failure, dozens of dozens of newspapers quoted the article as Proof  he played COD, all at once, like 50 in one day!!!!

 

Then you get into what I call the Tornado of Bullshit, a never ending cycle of nonsense that seems to be brought up over and over again by the media, the government and others, that always seems to fuel censorship or violent games legislation. Here is a diagram to show this off:

 

 

 

In this diagram the same thing seems to happen over and over again…

A) A school shooting happens, it is blamed on Violent games

B) Fake evidence such as the hoaxes, is used to “prove it”, hack psychologists go on talk shows

and say violent games are used to break down the inhibition to kill, (a Lie)

C) Hoaxes get debunked but sites get mysteriously shut down later

D) Public Outcry Happens

E) The Government gets involved and demands changes

F) Unknown parties instigate “Evidence Gathering Campaigns” against gaming sites, to prove gamers get violent for the things to come. Tactics such as harassment, abuse, threatening their lives while using fake names happen. This leads to fake evidence being gathered using abusive tactics.

G) Senate Hearings happen.

H) Studies are done to link violent games to aggression

I) Hack psychologists claim  these studies prove “Violence!” not aggression

J) More Public Outcry,

K) More Senate Outcry, this time legislation is brought up

L) Legislation fails and goes to the supreme court

M) The Hoaxes are used to sway the justices by pro family/anti-gaming groups

N) The justices find the law unconstitutional…

O) Now the hack psychologists call gamers druggies and sociopaths

P) Other fake “media violence experts” lie and say their life is being threatened

Q) More public outcry, more fake evidence, more Legislation!

 

 

 

In this conspiracy theory, who is involved? Good Question….. The government is part of this but they are far from the only people… Any news writer mentioning fake evidence is definitely in on this, that includes the writers of the 3 articles that claimed a fake version of doom was found on Harris’s site. Any public outcry group that uses fake evidence against games, is possibly involved (depends on if they know it’s fake or not, doesn’t it?). Then the right wing zealot groups who tried to hijack Brown vs Ema, they are definitely part of this… Anyone who takes part in evidence gathering campaigns or Video game Slander attack campaigns like the Facebook Mass Effect BS trolling mentioned above is probably involved…. In the Denverpost.com forum debacle linked in the Evidence Gathering Campaign link above, the Email Services (justicemail), the Forum itself, the thread the forum took place on, the post the troll posted claiming he had found evidence that the gamers get violent (by our responses), all of this got mysteriously deleted no more than 3 years later… Conspiracy? I say YES!!!!

 

What does this mean for the future of gaming… It’s not good, that’s for sure…. Every time a school shooting happens and “proof” is found the shooter like violent games, be wary of it. Most of the time it’s fabricated, made up proof, part of a much bigger scheme…. I don’t trust any site claiming to show a link between a school shooter, and a motive involving video games making him commit the crime, such evidence such as the hoaxes are just that, Nonsense hoaxes perpetrated by the people involved in this conspiracy to fuck with our freedoms… Who knows if the real perpetrators of Sandy Hook, Columbine (?), Marathon Bombings, etc, are in on it too. Those are brought up to make people think before I went into the meat of the article, proof of a coverup, the first step to prove a conspiracy… I’m not sure myself if Columbine was a false flag, or if Sandy Hook Was, but if the evidence Social Security has given was NOT a mistake on  their part, then it MUST BE…. And people must act… How they must act is dependant of the future events attacking violent games in the Media, the Government etc…. Don’t let the Administration fake evidence to make violent games look like a Culprit if PROOF has been found Lanza died 1 day before… IMHO, Taking away violent games is part of a much bigger conspiracy to control our minds.  Also part of this is constant boot camp style brainwashing done at a lower but not friendly intensity to make people perfectly loyal, controlled subjects during the Education process from 2nd grade till the graduate college. Gaming, Sexuality, Music, Entertainment, Our right to get third party music (what RIAA is fighting), Our right to bear arms, our right to privacy, our right to fair and legal justice (their is none anymore, murderers get off and innocents like Aaron Swartz are put to death every day for crimes they did not commit), all of this goes against control. All of it. So it’s a no brainier, that if they are conspiring to control us all, why would they NOT conspire to get rid of stuff that makes it harder for them to do that in the first place?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So once again the media makes up utter stupid claims to try to link Sandy Hook to Call of Duty…. Here is the stupidest of them all, that Adam Lanza when he was killing kindergarteners in the school was mimicking a “mission” or “scenario” in one of the COD games… This lovely website is spewing this shit and these idiots need to be held accountable for their utter tripe and scapegoating:

scallywagandvagabond.com/2013/02/did-adam-lanza-copy-a-scene-from-a-video-game-in-the-sandy-hook-massacre/

Number 1, there is NO scenario or mission in ANY COD games where you BUTCHER kindergartners, these games are WAR time simulators where you fight soldiers…  Not one has a scene in a school. For an idiot to blame the COD games for this and say that the shooter was “mimicking” a mission in COD is utterly stupid!!! I’ve heard some bad claims but this one takes the cake…

The problem is that people who have never played the games will assume this asinine BS claim is true, when it is not… It is very dangerous during these times when PA (and many other states) have recently announced plans to study “violent video game consumption” as a “risk factor” (a nonexistent one) for school shootings…. Shit like this can and will cause moral panics…. These so-called “writers” need to be stripped of their writing degrees, and thrown in jail for life, because they are no better than the fucking religious zealots who threatened to picket the marathon victim funerals…

But to make things worse, according to the site below, the Department of Social services recorded Adam Lanza’s death 1 day before the shooting, opening up tons of Conspiracy theories saying that Sandy Hook was a False Flag operation to “take away our guns”…. More like to take away our damn Games!!! If he did not shoot up the school, then who did? The government isn’t investigating this, the media didn’t even mention this claim once, just “mental illnesses”, “violent games”, and “gun control”… Things the government wants to change/control… they want to use military discipline (aka Military Basic Training like “treatment” to “erase mental illnesses”, just look at the BS commercials for the “Total transformation” package that uses MILITARY BRAINWASHING tactics to “supposedly” erase the ODD, and other disorders, by COMMANDS… Like in the military… They also want to take away guns and ban violent games… They need an excuse, so a “mentally deranged gamer gun nut” goes and kills a bunch of toddlers…. So now we need to ban violent games and treat mental illnesses (being a “gamer” is one of these now!) with brutal military discipline and guns need to be banned…

scallywagandvagabond.com/2013/01/adam-lanza-said-to-have-died-a-day-before-sandy-hook-shooting-conspiracy/

But IF this claim above saying Lanza died one day before the Shooting IS true, this is PROOF the military and the government have been orchestrating “shootings” like this to pin it on guns, violent games, and mental illnesses…. When will the government “research” this? Never… it goes against their agenda…. It’s idiocy at it’s finest, and we are all scapegoats….

After the Marathon Bombings. More BS that we gamers are all terrorists started flying around attack sites just like BS that did the same exact thing after the sandy hook shooting on a facebook page for the Mass Effect games…. It’s a shitty never-ending cycle that no one is trying to stop…. Then some crime writer goes out and purposely implies gamers are baby killers after a preacher implies gamers are child molesters…. So were terrorists too!!!! We don’t need this shit all over again… It’s disgusting…

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…

ESRB

ESRB “Mature 17+” rating symbol, displayed on the packaging of computer and video games appropriate for audiences over the age of 17. Part of the ESRB Video Game Rating System. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

So I thought this Moral Panic on  violent entertainment causing Sandy Hook was done. Apparently not… Lo and Behold, Senator Grassley, a Repooplican from Iowa starts ranting on how the Gaming Industry’s Voluntary Rating system isn’t good enough, how it “lets these violent games get to kids”. What violent  games are these, “ones that glorify killing of innocent people”. Sure… I quote:

“There are too many video games that celebrate the mass killing of innocent people — games that despite attempts at industry self-regulation find their way into the hands of children,” 

 

Talk about a moronic claim…. Number 1, the “attempts at industry self-regulation” (like they are a complete failure, despite the FTC study that says that the ESRB ratings are better than the MPAA ones, enforcement wise), have nothing to do with why these “violent games that glorify the mass killing of innocents” fall into the hands of children. Number 1, the Industry itself isn’t to blame if the Stores refuse to card the people buying the games, or the 2/3’s of parents who refuse to read the ESRB ratings in the first place, right? Apparently to this moron, the parents aren’t to blame and somehow the industry made the parents not read the ratings or the stores are being all run by the industry and purposely start selling GTA games to kids…. This whole claim is bunk, and he knows NOTHING about violent games, the industry or the “attempts at industry self-regulation”. He just blindly believes all the nonsense being spread that violent games are marketed to kids because “oh noes, the kids can buy games…” BLAH BLAH BLAH

To make things worse his claim of how their are too many games that “celebrate the mass killing of innocent people” is a bogus claim too. I regularly debunk crap like this. It’s just a blanket statement, used to demean the industry based on shitty games, ones that do allow the “mass killing of innocent people”, which are few and far between. Using a list of all released FPS games on wikipedia, I calculated that the sheer lack of “uber violent games” is astounding, despite what scaremongering is being said by people like Grassley.

This list spans all the way back to the 1970’s with Sega titles such as “Jet Rocket”, long before the dawn of PC gaming, so it does count everything…. No picking and choosing, no editing of the total data to show a point, pure unadulterated Facts…. Something anti-gamers almost never provide, it’s almost always rhetoric, false data, or misinterpretation.

When You look at the spreadsheet, look at the column “gms kill inno”. This is how many games out of 650 allow you to kill “innocent civilians”, where innocent civilians are defined as characters who can’t fight back. I have 2 rows, one with all 650 games in the FPS category, and another with all FPS games + Postal + all GTA games.  That one is the second row, the lower one with 658 total games. The top row with 650 games is just FPS games. “gms rwd inno” is how many games that reward killing of innocent people.  “gms nrwd ino” are games that punish killing innocent civilian characters. Look at the % with and without GTA and Postal applied, tiny %, less than 10 in each case…  There have only been 19 FPS games EVER released that allow the killing of innocent characters. Only 4 of these reward it. Tiny numbers when you factor in the 650 total FPS games ever made. 8 Punish the killing of innocents.  IF you count in GTA  games and Postal 1 you get 27 total games in this list that allow the player to kill innocent characters, and only 8 reward it. 15 Punish the killing of innocents!!! You see a pattern, equal amount of FPS games punish the killing of innocents, and in the case when you add in GTA, more punish than reward. Apparently Grassley can’t stand the fact that there are 8 games since 1970(!) (when the list started) that reward killing innocents. But he mentioned mass slaughter of innocents!!!

Grassley’s complaint about “too many games that celebrate the mass killing of the innocent” is a nonsense claim. Because this suggests that there are games where you are rewarded for mowing down big rooms of innocent civilians in such a game. Here’s the thing. No ESRB Game like this Exists! In any game with civilians, that reward it, it’s never been huge numbers killed at once. People might say “GTA!” but GTA, despite the nonsense claim about it, does NOT reward  the killing of innocent civilians. It punishes it. You get the police after you for doing stuff like this, get arrested, etc… That’s punishment, not rewarding. The last game to reward mass killing of innocents, the only one was before the ESRB, so the esrb has nothing to do with it, that was Carmageddon! In 1997! The only game I know where it :”rewards” the mass killing of innocents….. Under the ESRB, the “voluntary rating system” there have been 0 games that “glorify the mass killing of innocents!!!”. NONE! Zip! Zero!! Zilch!!! Grassley is a liar… Surprise!!

So Grassley is making up crap, just like a lot of morons who attack games do. It’s stupid. It has to stop. He is also hinting at regulation of the industry by the government and using biased claims and utter lies to support it??? I thought this country was beyond it. IF they do decide to regulate the games like this, what’s to stop them from setting up a system where they purposely rate any game that is only slightly violent or above, to their equivalent of Adult Only, so the stores won’t sell them.. Hmmm… Because thats what I think people like this want, just to get rid of all the violent games so no one can buy them, no adults can too, no gaming companies can sell them so the industry just goes out of business. These people shouldn’t be in office if they use nonsense like this to fuel censorship, and make no difference it is. The gaming industry does not need to be regulated!! Just the Congress!!! Seriously…

Recently, I did some editorials on youtube, attacking the nonsense spread after Sandy Hook singling Out violent games, and debunking nonsense that was mentioned, and other related topics.   These videos are a sequel set to my Violent Game BS Set of videos which have been given new names.   Here are the videos: Check them out…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even though I spent quite a lot of time recording these videos, I still haven’t got a lot of video views…. Anyone who is interested in video game violence nonsense debunking should check this out…. They cover a lot of stuff, From the problems of Taxing and Banning Violent game (why  they don’t solve anything), Trolls who blindly believe games cause violence and think gamers are scum, comments attacking games and how a lot spread nonsense, The Fabricated link between Child Pornography and Violent Games, and how the Media made up crap to scapegoat Doom after Columbine.
