Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

October 10, 2008 -

Q: What do you get when you cross a media sensation with a guy who loves to see his name in print?

A: A letter from Jack Thompson to Sarah Palin.

Facing imminent disbarment, the Miami attorney has written to the Republican vice-presidential candidate, urging her to take a stand against violent video games. And, of course, offering his own services in that regard.

In a letter to America's best-known hockey mom, Thompson writes:

The McCain-Palin campaign, with all respect, is missing the boat on this issue. I strongly urge your campaign to tell American parents that if elected you will present to Congress a bill that prevents the sale of adult games to kids while fully protecting the First Amendment. 

 

I have this crucial, constitutional legislation drafted and ready to go.  You will see voters flock to your proposal.  The American entertainment industry’s assault upon our children and our values must stop, and you are the person to stop it. 

Thompson's previous attempt at "this crucial, constitutional legislation," however, was declared unconstitutional in stinging language by a federal judge in Louisiana. Utah's Republican attorney general also dismissed a Thompson-drafted bill as a violation of the First Amendment. State legislatures in Delaware and Massachusetts have likewise passed on Thompson's proposal.

Full text of the letter after the jump...

Re:  Federal Law Needed to Stop Sale of Mature-Rated Video Games to Minors

Dear Governor Palin:

Over the last decade I have appeared on more than 200 national television programs (Today eight times, 60 Minutes twice, Nightline, Oprah) alerting Americans to the public safety and health hazards posed by the video game industry’s marketing and sale of violent and pornographic Mature-rated video games to minors.  Innumerable school shootings have been caused by these murder simulators, including those at Paducah, Columbine, Red Lake, and Virginia Tech.  We are teaching our kids how to murder.

A number of reliable polls prove that 70% of the American people want a federal law prohibiting the sale of adult video games to minors.  We are the only nation in the world that does not have such a law. The United States Federal Trade Commission has proven that major retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Wal-Mart are violating the video game industry’s age rating system. These brazen sales by these huge retailers are occurring in stores and via the Internet.   I have sat in jail cells with these game-trained killers.  I have sat in the living rooms of the families of their victims.  Both sides in this carnage are bathed in tears.  The video game industry is sowing the wind, and the rest of us are reaping their whirlwind.  It is going to get worse.  Columbine times ten is on the way.  

The McCain-Palin campaign, with all respect, is missing the boat on this issue. I strongly urge your campaign to tell American parents that if elected you will present to Congress a bill that prevents the sale of adult games to kids while fully protecting the First Amendment.  I have this crucial, constitutional legislation drafted and ready to go.  You will see voters flock to your proposal.  The American entertainment industry’s assault upon our children and our values must stop, and you are the person to stop it. 

Regards, Jack Thompson

Still, deceptive practices on YOUR part John Bruce?  Yup, that too isn't a surprise.

Here are some FACTS:

Not good enough you say?

Seriously, John Bruce, you should purify that Bible of yours with fire.  It's tainted by a Demon-Pretender-To-The-Throne-Of-Hevean that's been telling you that lies, deceit, fraud, and corruption are "moral" acts.

Re: Fraudulent and Deceptive Trade Practice by Wal-Mart, Inc.
 
Dear Chairman Kovacic:
 
As you know, the Federal Trade Commission has been very active since the Columbine school massacre regarding the fraudulent, deceptive, and harmful marketing of adult entertainment to minors. President Clinton led the effort in asking the FTC to identify this deceptive commercial practice that has led to numerous violent, tragic events.
 
Specifically, the FTC has warned retailers that they must do a better job of adhering to the age ratings on particular adult entertainment products, including ESRB-rated video games. Today I am shocked to find that Wal-Mart, the largest retailer of video games in the United States, is flagrantly thumbing its nose at the Federal Trade Commission. Here’s how:
 
On October 14, video game developer THQ will release the Mature-rated Saints Row 2. It is basically a Grand Theft Auto knock-off.
 
Wal-Mart, despite the ESRB “Mature” rating, is stating at its www.walmart.com site that Saints Row 2 is rated “Teen,” and thus Wal-Mart is not even asking the age of the Internet buyers, as the other Internet retail sites selling this game are, such as BestBuy.com, GameStop.com, etc. For proof of this incredible lapse by Wal-Mart, see  http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_constraint=0&ic=48_0&search_query=saints+row+2&Find.x=22&Find.y=7 . A copy of this Wal-Mart Internet order page for Saints Row 2 is attached hereto as well. Here is a portion of that Wal-Mart.com page:
  
ESRB Rating:Teen

The sequel to Saints Row will bring open world thug-driven action to the 360 and PS3.

$59.82
Availability:   Online,   Not Sold In Stores
 
Mr. Chairman, Wal-Mart’s offering of this “Mature”-rated game to the public for sale as a “Teen”-rated game, and its brazen failure even to ask the age of the buyers constitutes a fraudulent and deceptive trade practice that must be enjoined immediately by the FTC and also punished, pursuant to the powers given the FTC by Congress.
 
This is just the latest installment of a distressing scofflaw pattern by Wal-Mart, which the FTC recently found has triple the failure rate of competitor GameStop in selling Mature-rated video games to underage kids in its brick-and-mortar stores.
 
Please proceed against Wal-Mart quickly and aggressively. Action must be taken this week. If the FTC does not act, I shall.
 
Regards, Jack Thompson

Re: Jack Thompson Makes Mountains of Molehills Again

So Wal-Mart's webmaster makes one lousy mistake labeling a M-rated game a T-rated game. Big deal.

No need to get your BVD's in a wad over it.

Everybody's made a mistake at one point or another. Wal-Mart will fix it soon as it's brought to their attention, whenever that will be since they still haven't changed it as of 4:30pm CT.

Practice what you preach, Metropolitian Moron of Miami: Grow up and get a life, loser.

So, wait... that's it? That's your 'big news?' Even if that wasn't just an error on some programmer's part, why did you wait until NOW to post it?

Oh, and posting these letters in their entirety is a violation of the comments policy that you're supposed to follow now that you registered here.

This was your "big surprise"?  Pathetic.  Consider the bottom of the barrel well scraped.  Also Jack, if you don't change your user name after your disbarment we WILL report you for impersonating a lawyer.  Ta-ta sweetness.

EDIT: I particuarly like the "If the FTC doesn't act, I will" part.  What are you planning to do to one of the largest companies on the planet Jack?  Fail in their general direction?

-Ultimately what will do in mankind is a person's fear of their own freedom-

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

First off, this is a single retailer who has made a rather obvious error in a single game listing. The actual rating is perfectly visible in each cover image. This is hardly evidence of any sort of intentional attempt to market the game to children.

Second, Walmart is not an extension of the ESRB, the actual board responsible for rating these games. The ESRB has given the game an appropriate Mature rating that any parent should take the time to recognize before letting their child play it.

The most this sad, little situation does is point out that Walmart is not being 100% perfect in following the ESRB guidelines. We've all made a mistake or two.

Or 27.

Since Walmart is not actually connected to either the ESRB or the game responsible for making this game, this is, at the very most, going to lead to some type of reprimand and, possibly, a small fine.

Third, this is very, very sad. Even for you.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

So some guy mistakingly lists Saint's Row 2 as "Teen" instead of "Mature" and JT calls this "fradulent and deceptive trade practice"? That's the "big news"?

Oh man, I would totally make fun of this, I mean seriously rip on this but I can't. This is so fantastically ridiculous, so completely out there that you just can't. You can't spoof something like this. You can't take something this dumb and make it even dumber. If someone can figure out a way to do it, please let me know cause I haven't got a clue.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

So, did you make any attempt to correct the error via the retailer, or were you too busy foaming at the mouth to do so?

If you didn't then you've just wasted 3 copy-pastes.

And why post 3 times? Too stupid to know how to post something once, or just too infantile?

 

But then, it's much easier to write to someone else about the error, and leave it in place, than actually go to the source and, you know, do something about it.

Here's an amazing idea, why not use the 'Contact Us' link to let them know there is an error, that way, for the first time in your life, you'd actually be making a difference.

 

 Edit: Oh, and THIS was your 'big news' regarding Saints Row 2? That's a pretty damp squib there Jack.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

John Bruce just sent me an email claiming that I was not allowing him to post. THat is why he posted this three times. I gladly pointed out that the comments are now in pages.

Psonally, I prefer Treet to Spam, and cold liver pudding sandwiches over Treet, but that's just me.

Anyway, allow Nostrodamus's long lost decendant, me, (although, really, I'm supposedly a decent of Lady Godiva, but we don't want to see me riding around nekked do we?) to predict John Bruce's latest "look at me!' prattle:

Public Nuisance suit (Reading http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=804464 I can see what ignorant baffoonish reasons you would come up with to use the legal system to push your Anti-First Amendment agenda, not to mention the SE which is in a pistol shaped box)

Claimed he had his son skip school... er... had his son move forward in time, purchase it without ID then will announce it that it actually happened a week or two later

Went on FOX or some other tabloid trash TV show, or even lied enough to get onto a real TV news show to claim some criminal act was because of a game that won't be out til Tuesday

You scream "the video game industry really IS in bed with the porn industry" because Tera Patrick's voice is in the game and therefore there must be hidden sex scenes in it because your Demon-Pretender-To-The-Throne-Of-Heaven, which you're trying to use to save your butt in the really big Federal Case to save your career, told you so

:: Yawn ::

We've heard it all before there sparky.  And even if you succeed initially, you'll ultimately fail (Remember Louisiana?)

 Nice.  True, and nice.

 

You've failed at this how many times, Jack?  What makes you think this one will be any different?  You're just going to create more publicity for the game and make it sell more than it would have otherwise, thus perpetuating the existance of that which you hate.  YOU are counterproductive, Jacko.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Can't find anyone asking or answering this question so here I go.

"We are the only nation in the world that does not have such a law."
I don't remember such a law around here. To take some countries as example, let me ask you, what countries of the following have "a federal law prohibiting the sale of adult video games to minors"?
- United Kingdom
- Ireland
- Spain
- France
- Italy
- Germany
- The Netherlands
- Belgium
- Sweden
- Norway
- Denmark
- Finland

And please do add the exact number/whatever of the law so I can go and verify.

Obama Biden 08!! I believe in you letter of idiocy was supposed to, and I quote "see voters flock to your proposal." As you can see we sure have flocked and I'm hoping this is the response you wanted because as you can see no one flocks to you, you're a crazy, old, wrinkly, wiredo whose trying to destroy something people love. You're wrong in everything you stand for, and you know nothing of what you preach. Why is it that whenever something happens everyone looks to videogames to blame. Wasn't it movies and music just a couple of years ago. Isn't there always something corrupting the youth of America. Give up Jack you've lost no one respects you, no one understands you, and no one cares what you have to say. If you're so hell bent on destroying an American tradition why don't you just leave. We can solve our problems without you. If you think that gamers will just roll over and play dead your wrong 40% of US households have game consoles and a lot of those people don't like you at all. We are strong and getting stronger everyday and if you think you got the balls to stand up to us go ahead. We're not underground geeks and nerds anymore we sing loud and proud of our passion and those who intend to take it away should cower in fear. You've sealed the deal I would never consider voting for someone associated with you, "Jack Thompson Raging Hemorrhoid on the ass of society and You Are Not", in a million years. As for the next President of the United States will be Obama Biden. Palin will fade away back to her little cottage in Alaska with Ted Kosinski keeping an eye on Putin for us.

Innumerable school shootings have been caused by these murder simulators, including those at Paducah, Columbine, Red Lake, and Virginia Tech.

Are you serious? Thats an outright lie right there. Thats DISGUSTING JACK! There was never any evidence to prove your statement that the shooter at VT ever played video games, not to mention, his roommate testifed and said he did a lot of writings. Jack, you really think that such a tragedy is casued by video games being used as simulators? MY god! What is wrong with you? 

I want to puke. How dare you Jack.

MaskedPixelanteNevermind. Turns out when they said "the patch is now live", they meant "it's still in beta".12/19/2014 - 5:07pm
MaskedPixelanteSo I bought Dark Souls PC, and it's forcing me to log into GFWL. Did I miss something?12/19/2014 - 5:00pm

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am
ZippyDSMleeAnd I still spent 200$ in the last month on steam/GOG stuff sales get me nearly every time ><12/19/2014 - 10:55am
ZippyDSMleeMaskedPixelante:And this is why I'm a one legged bandit.12/19/2014 - 10:51am
ZippyDSMleeE. Zachary Knight: I buy what I can as long as I can get cracks for it...then again it I could have gotton Lords of the Fallen for 30 with DLC I would have ><12/19/2014 - 10:50am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/12/19/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-leaving-online-storefronts-soon/ Speaking of "last chance to buy", Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is getting delisted from all major storefronts. Behold the wonders of the all digital future.12/19/2014 - 9:59am
MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
E. Zachary KnightInfophile, Tha is why I buy only DRM-free games.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
MaskedPixelanteNordic is back on GOG for one weekend only. And at 85% off no less, which is kind of a slap in the face to people who paid more during the "NORDIC IS LEAVING FOREVER BUY NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE" sale, but whatever...12/19/2014 - 9:28am
InfophileRe PHX's link: This is one of the reasons the digital revolution isn't all it's cracked up to be. There's also the flip side where Sony can block access to games you've bought if they ban your account for unrelated reasons. All power is theirs.12/19/2014 - 8:52am
MaskedPixelantehttp://uplay.ubi.com/#!/en-US/events/uplay-15-days You can win FREE GAMES FOR A YEAR! Unfortunately, they're Ubisoft games.12/18/2014 - 6:29pm
Papa MidnightAh, so it was downtime. I've been seeing post appear in my RSS feed, but I was unable to access GamePolitics today across several ISPs.12/18/2014 - 6:06pm
