Jack Thompson makes me sick to my stomach.
« on: January 20, 2006, 07:46:09 PM »
Sorry to bring this subject up again, but this was just something that I needed post, because this is just so horrible that it makes me want to puke, and I thought I should share it.  I found this over at the Ctrl Alt Del page here and there is just no way to describe how despicable this man is.  Jack Thompson took the horrible tragidy of this guy commiting suicide, and he spun it around for his own personal agenda.  That is just the worst thing a person can ever do, to take someone else's suffering and turn it into his own benifit.

Before, during the whole "hot coffee" controversy, I thought that Jack Thompson was just another politician, completely full of hot air.  Now I realize that he is a selfish man who is willing to exploit the suffering of others in an attempt to boost his own agenda, and to raise his own esteem.

One more thing, no matter how much you may dislike Jack Thompson, please dont issue threats here, or say what you may think he "deserves" that is just what he wants us to do, he wants proof of what he thinks about us gamers, so lets not give it to him.

The playing of these video games is masturbatory activity, meaning senseless self-stimulation. If you gamers could use a dictionary you would know that that term is not necessarily a sexual one.


I actually took out my Webster's New World College Dictionary, 4th Edition and looked it up. It is a sexual term.

Taking a tragic event and using to take cheap shots at people is just plain wrong. This is why I tell people that I play video games, sadly, out of spite.

I just lurve how he keeps insulting gamers and gamers intelligence.  It does alot to portray him as the rational, clear headed thinker he really is.

If Jackass here is religious he can now be sure that his soul will be thrown into the burning lake of sulfur along with the false prophet and the antichrist. No, wait. Not along. Jackass Thompson IS the freaking false prophet. One of those who want to control our minds, who want to say what we are allowed to do. One who deems himself our master, our god. He wants to make us feel guilty about having fun without his consent to make us his slaves. If we give up control of our personal happiness we give up control of ourselves, we'd be nothing more than Pavlov's dogs, hoping for the master to allow us to be happy today and willing to do anything the master wants just so he allows us to be happy. He wants to take all three from us, freedom, the pursuit of happyness and thus everything that makes us live. Jack Thompson is destroying the freedom that the USA was founded upon, just like Al Qaeda. Jack Thompson wants to enforce his "god given" morals upon the "infidels" of the USA, just like Al Qaeda. Terrorists spread terror first and foremost, terror is their weapon. Terror is what Jack Thompson is trying to incite. Jack Thompson is one of Göbbels's like.

Peace Out.

Some have speculated that this is just someone posing as Thompson to make him look even more heartless.
So anyway I was in the shopping center demanding to know where they kept the western potatoes when Drive Safe came around with Simple Plan blaring out telling me that driving on the wrong side of the road is ok if the other guy is drunk while I immediately jumped on my dirt racer to zoom out of ther

Jack Thompson is angry because he has a spiked dildo lodged in his small intestine. He got the idea from Pong as a kid.

If games made us as violent as Thompson claims, he'd have had a .50 round between the eyes after the first five minutes.

Men are warriors, we fight to establish the hierarchy in the tribe, we fight to get meat, we fight to kill competitors. Men have always been fighting, men have always waged war. Games (video, board, sports) merely provide a way for men to do their fighting in a way that doesn't hurt others. Why do people cheat? Because it makes them the alpha in their particular scale. Why do people wear expensive clothes and buy expensive things? To rise in their personal scale. Why do people measure their dicks? To come out top and be the alpha male.  The alpha gets all the women, the alpha gets to eat first, the alpha gets to rule. Alpha is power, alpha is survival of the genes, alpha is pprogression of the species. While the values of what makes you the alpha have diverged greatly and people have developed their own definitions of "power" in order to come out top on their own scale, the competition remains. Being proud of something means you consider it an important step to being alpha and those who don't have what you are proud of are inferior.

Declaring a console as "for kids" is a result of this, for example. To devalue a set of competitors you define their console as inferior and lower them on your scale so you still feel like you are the alpha.

i think animecyberrat can blow it out his ass for all i care.  i mean seriously, who do you think is gona take wut u say seriously?  if we want to play "violent" video games then thats our choice.  like if a 3 year old is playing doom 3, for instance, then it is his and his parents decision.  if you dont like it then dont play them.  
I have acww so if you want my info ask me and ill send it to u in a private message.

People, Jack Thompson included, get 'violent' defending their religion too.  I guess sacred texts are the origin of violence...

Nah...violence is, sadly, inherent in human nature. Those "Sacred Texts" are just one groups attempt to justify violence against others.  

====
If it -is- an imposter, then he did a really good job emulating Jacks signature style.  It read like any other Thompson manifesto.  

And animecyberrat...we're not defending "violent games".  We're defending all games from a religious nutbar (I'm not saying all religious people are nutbars, just certain ones) who claims that they are warping children and causing the downfall of christian morals in America, and we're also defending the idea that videogames do not a pyschopath make.  

I really hope Jack gets his license revoked.  He's an uninformed, politically motivated asshat who makes up more than he researches and still gets called an "Expert".

Hey chill out I was only kidding, if you ever read ANY of my posts yo will learn to knwo when I am kididng and when i am being serious.


I wasnt agreeing with tompson I was only saying its dumb how you guys all get worked up over this guy who says your playing too violent video games, and  I have already made it VERY WELL KNOWN that Mortal Kombat is my favorite video game series but I was already ateenager when I stered playing it,. I think LITTLE KIDS should not be allowed to play violent vidoe games, but teens and adults have the right to chose what ever they want.


Now I wasnt not saying that i agree entirely that playing violent games makes a person violent cuz I play many violent games and I am a very peaceful person in life.  Again chidlren DO NOT have the saem rights as adults and they shoudnt be treaed as adults ever.

I gotta agree with you on that animecyberrat, there are a lot of games that small children should not play.  That is why we have the ESRB, and parents should keep their kids from playing the M and T games, depending on how mature they judge their child to be.  The problem is not video games, it is irresponsible parents.

Thompson's back in court.  This time he's suing the FL Bar.
Quote

Thompson filed suit against the Florida Bar, of which he is a member, claiming the regulatory association has been conspiring against his rights as a citizen. ... Thompson believes the Bar has been collaborating with opposing lawyers in his lawsuits over Grand Theft Auto and Howard Stern, encouraging them to file Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation (SLAPP) complaints against him for over a year and a half. In common legal lingo, a SLAPP complaint is a lawsuit that creates a chilling effect on free speech--it is intended solely to discourage a party from expressing a certain point of view by intimidation and the burden of legal costs associated with defending oneself against the complaint.
The article goes on to explain that Thompson sued the FL Bar back in 1990 but his complaint was "dismissed with prejudice".

On a side note, Wandering needs to change his title.

Looks like I called it right when I said his career was over, and the bar is probably not going to have any more of his nonsense
