When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith Vaz Would Find Another Issue

March 18, 2009 -

Yesterday, GamePolitics reported that British newspaper the Daily Mail had raised serious ethical questions about the conduct of Labour MP Keith Vaz in relation to a court case involving a political donor.

The coverage of Vaz, who has been the U.K.'s most vociferous video game violence critic over the years, prompted an unsolicited comment from Jack Thompson.

Thompson, of course, is the most strident of video game critics in the United States and one might be forgiven for assuming that he and Vaz share some common cause. Not so, apparently. Of Vaz, Thompson writes:

I had my own dealings with MP Keith Vaz regarding the Stefan Pakeerah matter. I found Vaz to be deceptive [and] unreliable...

 

He's a political opportunist... I wish he would get the Hell off the video game issue.  People like him don't help us. Boris Johnson, on the other hand, is credible, in my opinion.

The disbarred Miami attorney also questioned Vaz's ethics. Although GP asked, Thompson did not provide any specifics as to what may have soured his relationship with Vaz.

Stefan Pakeerah was a 14-year-old constituent of Vaz's who was murdered by a 17-year-old wielding a claw hammer in 2004. Rockstar's Manhunt was newly available at the time and Vaz has sought to link the game to the killing ever since. Thompson, of course, is no friend of Rockstar's, either.

Boris Johnson is a British conservative who is currently the Mayor of London. As GamePolitics has reported, Johnson has made comments linking illiteracy and knife crime to video games.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

I am sure everyone else see's the irony in JT's statement.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

I really do wonder we people haven't clicked that Mr. Thompson thrives on such attacks aimed at him, it keeps him in the public eye and helps him to publicise his cause, to make money (he couldn't give a monkeys about games, he's a lawyer and it's an easy route to make money from suing games companies in his profession). The attacks on him only serve to prove his points that games are dangerous (due to the aggressive and abusive comments sent his way).

He thrives from being seen as this boogie man, apparently out to destroy the so-called "righteous" American constitution. I'm surprised people haven't tweaked and realised that it is best to ignore him rather than getting involved in any childish mud-slinging matches, that way he doesn't get the publicity that he seeks.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

It´s hard to ignore a cow blocking the highway, even if you can evade it, it still be blocking the way of others.

Jack is the same. Yes, it would be better ignore him, but he is still politically alive, and there si some people who are willing to listen to him, and that´s why he is still a problem for everybody who plays videogames or produces them.

Please don't insult me, I just want to discuss with you all about these topics and hopefully some of you will understand my views. You should look into the Westboro Baptist Church's teachings, as they will hopefully change your mind on these issues and your understand my views.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Oi. I'm being trolled. I fell for it too. Sigh.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Yup, When Sage mentioned Westboro, Im thinking... Yep, It is a Troll, WBC has already been classified by the  U.S goverment as a Hate Group and Terrorist Organization.

Sage, You'll never learn from the likes of John Bruce Thompson, this man aint nothing but a well-endugled hypocrite and a slightly professional "I give a shit only for myself cause to me, your moot.", This man just wants to piss on the freedom of speech as usual,Not to mention his little "moral crusades" arent anything but failing attempts of a get-rich quick scheme.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

I'm not sure what a troll is, but if sharing my views which are different then everyone elses is being a "troll" then I guess I am one. And i'm not a member of WBC, but we share similar views. The WBC takes things a little too far though, and that's why the government has labeled them as such. But if you take a look at the teachings themselves, they for the most part make sense.

I admit i'm not best friends with Jack, and I feel he (aswell as WBC) take things too far. But he's not as bad a person as you all make him out to be. He's truely trying to help people, but he's also trying to make money from it aswell. Kinda makes sense to make money while doing what you feel is right.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Jack is the one who makes Jack out to be a bad person.  Only a bad person would take joy in mass murder.  Jack said that he "loved" the recent shootings in Germany. 

But really you came out of the closet as a troll the moment you mentioned Westboro Baptist Church.  No reasonable person, Christian or non, support that group in any form.

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

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

That just shows how concerned he is. To do something that will destroy yourself in order to protect the lives of so many people, that would be extremely honorable to me.

He "loves" shootings because it gives him the chance to change things. I think you guys are misinterpreting what he's saying and making him out to be some demon in disguise as a man.

So your saying i'm unreasonable? That's a very offensive thing to say. I don't take part in picketing funerals or anything. I just share belief's with them on most points.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Sage, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and consider you to be speaking sincerely here, rather than "trolling".

(FYI: "Trolling" is the public posting of inflammatory, scandalous or slanderous remarks on a message board for the purpose of inciting emotional stress and rage in other people, usually leading to those people expressing their shock and distress in response, thus providing evidence of such infliction to the "troll" from which he derives pleasure and satisfaction.)

First, it is difficult to "misinterpret" his acts of broad and explicit arrogance and harrassment on people.  Critics who challenge him he directly and unequivocally calls "morons" (a direct example- his words, not mine) and other deragatory terms, usually accompanied by threats of lawsuits.  He is also known for calling you by phone or emailing you simply to insult you to your face and threaten you with his now-removed legal power.  He has done this to many members of this message board.

Second, his disbarment was not even because of the cause he champions but because of 27 documented cases of harrassment, fraud, and legal misconduct.  You must note that Jack Bruce Thompson's acts include sending gay porn as part of his legal documents to insult the courts.  There have been videos of him in court acting with utmost disrespect not just to the opposing counsels but even to the judges.  He has been caught lying to the courts several times and is known for humiliating and causing emotional stress to litigants.

Third, you must consider that where his crusade is concerned, there are more productive, peaceful, reasonable and less aggravating ways for him to push his agenda.  Given the previous two, he has not shown any diplomacy, discussion or courtesy to anyone involved in media and video game influence studies.  He has shown aggression and rudeness to his opponents, and only that.  Where he has found allies, he has shown a blatant disregard for their being by immediately using their names and influence to his advantage without informing them or while making fraudulent remarks in their name.  Case in point: the National Institute of Media and the Family is scientifically-based thinktank genuinely concerned with the links between video games and violence.  Jack used their name in his crusade several times, but when the NIMF asked him to stop citing his behavior, especially attacking people, Jack immediately said that the NIMF director was being bribed by the video game industry, nevermind the NIMF being a legitimate critic of video games.  Note that Jack showed no evidence of such- his comment was based purely on NIMF's distancing itself from him.

Fourth, anywhere juvenile violence is concerned, Jack quickly and publicly associates such with video games despite a lack of facts or that the investigation is still on-going.  Case in point: Virginia Tech.  At the time, Sueng Hui-Cho, while having played video games in past, was not doing such while attending VTech, focusing on his studies albeit showing a lot of mental disturbance and violent tendencies.  Even during the TV interview where Jack himself asked an eyewitness (a fellow student of Cho's) what Cho was doing with a computer, where the eyewitness replied that Cho was writing a short story, Jack insisted he was playing a computer game.  It's neither easy to confuse a word processor with the graphics of any video game, nor is it easy to switch from Counter-Strike to word processor without people seeing it.

We do not make him to be a demon in human guise.  We know he's human.  But we also know, steadily and reliably documented, that he is behaving in one of the worst ways a human being and (ex) lawyer can as far as putting forward an agenda is concerned.  Being a Christian and "genuinely caring" for an issue neither demands nor requires doing what Jack has done to fellow human beings, from opponents to fellow lawyers to judges and the authorities to ordinary people like your or I.  It doesn't help at all.

For that matter, it even goes against what secular ethics and religious morality (I'm a practicing Christian, too) says.  Insulting people in public or threatening them constantly or practicing deceit in one's profession is not the right way for anyone to carry out their lives.

That he gleefully embraces conflict, grandstanding and hubris is not a sign of sincere crusader, but signifies someone who takes advantage of social issues and the tragedy in other people's lives for his own purposes.

Please do not think we are blindly mislabeling or misunderstanding him.  We know what he's done.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Jack doesn't mourn the dead, he exploits them.

As for misinterpreting, that's the core of Jack's agenda. Heck, that's the reason there are so many sects of Christianity that don't agree with each other.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

I'm not saying you are unreasonable.  I say that you are sick and support an evil man.  But such is your right to say what you wish.  Free speech and all of that.  Guess what?  That same free speech extends to violent media.  Sorry.

And Jack saying he loved the shootings in Germany just further proves that he is a massacare chaser.  No one would ever say they love such a detestable incedent, even if it supports their cause.

Homosexuals? WTF? Where does that even compare to the first two.

 

Congratulations Sage, you're an asshole.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith Vaz

Okay, while Jack might not be the most "ethical" lawyer, he's still doing his best to keep the children safe, and isn't safety really all that matters? I think Benjamin Franklin had it all wrong. We need to put our foot down on things like mass shootings, rape, and homosexuals right?

Re:When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith Vazgina

Are you mildly retarded, jabroni?

We really need to put our foot down on idiotic, asinine attempts circumvent the Constitution.

As I've been saying, if you’re going to infringe on a Constitutional right like freedom of speech based on the claim that the speech in question is “dangerous”, then you better damn well show absolute proof of that. It’s NEVER been done. There is no proof that any harm will come of anyone playing a “violent” video game.

If there is a danger so clear and so threatening to the American people that causes these self-righteous politicians to step on the First Amendment, wouldn’t any rational thinking person have to believe that the danger would have to be so obvious and clear that there would be no argument against it? Especially since you’re directly contradicting a Constitutional amendment.

We, the American people, have not been given any valid reason to believe that this abridging of our freedom of speech is necessary. There just simply isn’t any evidence at all of any danger from “violent” video games. This “protection” from “violent” video games isn’t needed or wanted for that matter, but please feel free to use everyone’s tax dollars for protection from things like a 10-foot storm surge from a Category 3 or greater hurricane or the fuselage of a 747 airplane entering the workplace or the home.
 

And as far as the Metropolitian Moron of Miami Thompson goes, a "good Christian" doesn't bear false witness like he has to various people and companies. A "good Christian" doesn't teach kids that it's OK to lie to get the results you want. And that it's OK to put price tags on dead bodies.

Here's a quote that best describes Thompson and the mainstream media, from a deleted scene from the school shooting episode of the TV show One Tree Hill, by Brooke Davis(played by Sophia Bush) after a news reporter asked her how she was feeling while the standoff was still going on:

“You should be ashamed of yourself. There are kids inside our school fearing for their lives right now, terrified that someone’s going to put a gun in their face and pull the trigger, and you want to know how I’m feeling?! Our pain is not a commodity for you, it’s not a newsbite to boost your ratings, because tomorrow, or the next day, or the next week when we go back to school, changed forever by a day that will never leave us, where are you going to be? At the next tragedy, thrusting your microphone in the face of the next fractured person, asking them how they feel? Lady, that is not journalism. You are not contributing anything to society. You’re buzzards circling the carnage, but you prey on the living. That is how I’m feeling, but something tells me that you’re not going to hear that.”

One last comment: Since you seem to buy into Thompson's liberal interpretation of cause and effect, if you want true "safety", we'd have to ban everything from cars, bicycles, cigarettes, all sports, all television, all movies, all theatrical plays(President Lincoln was shot and killed by John Wilkes Booth at a play in Ford Theatre), all books(including the Bible), and so on and so on.

And have absolutely nothing to live for. 

So how does Thompson's ass taste since you have your lips hermetically sealed to his butt?

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Yeah, kinda ironic and a bit hipocritical.

Perhaps JT should try to apply those same words to himself and try to understand them about what he has done.

Perhaps that is the only way that he could become a better person.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith Vaz

You know, it seems to me like Jack is just upset that Vaz has actually had some level of success where as thompson lost his license and never acomplished more then being an annoying jerk. Vaz is a fool, and an idiot, but he's at least actuall got some level of power. Jacks got nothing, beyond a long string of failures.  Still, lets just pray that he, Vaz, and that dirtbag from austrailia don't ever get together, or else the industry will have to go nuclear get them to shut up.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

If I were to be blunt, I don't actually dislike the man as a person, he's rather amusing, in a harmless, totally unaware sort of way, and well intentioned for the main part, though it hasn't got past my attention that this image has allowed him to get away with things that no other Mayor would be able to have got away with, so I have a sneaking suspicion he might be a lot smarter than he lets on.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

He has to be smarter then he lets on, no one can sound as barmy as he does at times and still be allowed to tie their own shoe laces.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

There has only been one other Mayor to compare him with and that is Jew-hating Ken Livingston (whose arrogance allowed him to get away with some quite corrupt things).

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

"Jew-Hating"? I don't think a spat with a single reporter is grounds for that comment. He was certianly a total tosser, Godwin-ing a Jewish reporter was spectacularly offensive.

Anyway, in both instances Londoners have got the Mayors they voted for and thus deserve.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith Vaz

I don't know much about that Vaz guy, but I know Jack and he sure can be a jerk when he doesn't get his way. I don't think he'd lie to anyone though. He's very Christian, always upholding those values.

Ahem.  From Jack's Wikipedia article:

"In May 2008, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dava Tunis, after reviewing 2,400 pages of transcripts and 1,700 pages of exhibits, recommended that Thompson be found guilty of 27 of the 31 violations of which he had been accused, including making false statements to tribunals, disparaging and humiliating litigants and other lawyers, and improperly practicing law outside of Florida."

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith Vaz

Wow...

How much did JT pay you to post here?

I'm not a Christian, however, from my gaming bretheren here who are I can safely say Jack Thompson DISBARRED attorney does not represent Christian values.

"Volume helps to get a point across but sharp teeth are better."

"Volume helps to get a point across but sharp teeth are better."

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Well, in a way, he does represent the actual values, of protecting children, and fighting against what you see an injustice, the problem is he's lost track of how or why he is doing it.

He pursues Christian ideals, he just doesn't do them in a way that is the least bit Christian. Sorry to say Sage that Thompson has been proven to be a liar on several occasions, if you want, I could go through them, but it's a long winded list and I won't unless I really have to.

If he wanted a dialogue, if he wanted to understand why people are defending games so vehemently, instead of merely assuming we are all 'Video Game industry flunkies' or 'Drug addled morons' then maybe he'd deserve a little more credibility, but as it is now, he is simply a voice of unreasoning hatred against everyone who dares think that adult games are, whilst offensive on occasion, not dangerous.

It sort of annoys me, because, like 'slasher movies' 20 years ago, stuff like this' popularity increases exponentially with the number of attempts to censor or control it, and with the number of people yelling about it from the rooftops.

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

I don't know, I always figured Christian values to be about love and not spreading hate and bigotry along with lying. I say Thompson representing Christian values is a gross misrepresentation itself.

I haven't brushed up on religion in a long time though and I haven't practiced a faith in 14 years. I may be wrong on what Christianity is suppose to represent.

 

Re: When Game Critics Collide: Jack Thompson Wishes Keith ...

Well, he's not doing it in a very Christian way, for my part, I think Thompson just sees Christianty as a useful springboard, he talks the talk, certainly, but just as certainly, he doesn't have the strength of character to walk the walk.

I remember once, in the LiveJournal days, Thompson claimed he'd do a deal with Satan himself to get rid of Video Games, and I think that is indicitative of exactly how Christian Thompson really is.
