Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager Who Claimed Homo-Eroticism in Army of Two

April 24, 2009 -

When an arch-conservative chats up a guy who thinks he detected homo-erotic overtones in EA's action shooter Army of Two, you just know that video games are in for a beat-down.

Eagle Forum president Phyllis Schlafly (left) is scheduled to interview Arthur Ally, president of the Florida-based Timothy Plan, tomorrow at noon EST on the Eagle Forum Live radio program.

Schlafly is a longtime opponent of gay rights and Ally bills himself as a morally-responsible fund manager. In December Ally's Timothy Plan issued a list of 30 "most offensive" video games, including the likes of World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online and Halo 3.

A promo for the program on the Eagle Forum site reads:

Anti-American Retards To Lie About Games On Radio

Somebody tell her that Halloween ended six months ago and she can take her mask off now.

Yet another hatchet job on games that the industry should sue for defamation of character and slander over, like Vince McMahon did to the Parent Trash Cult years ago.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Anti-American Retards To Lie About Games On Radio

The problem here is that Vince McMahon (despite having the maturity of a 15 year old) has a set of balls.  The games industry has historically been a bunch of pussies when it comes to standing up for itself.  Just look at how Doug Lowenstein handled JT, or even as recently as the Mass Effect incident.  What other industry relies on it's consumers to defend them more rigorously than itself?

I would LOVE to see this.

...Uuuugggghhh....the sound of this retardation is making me want to bludgeon my brain in.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

"Do you know detailed information about the content of the most popular video games?"

Because we don't! But we're sure as heck going to condemn them anyway!

"Join us as we talk with the president of an investing firm that has done extensive research into the video game industry."

Jumping to conclusions and misinterpreting things based on homophobia and hatred is NOT research.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

Oh man, this is so one-sided it's crazy! I can't wait.

For those wanting to view that list of "Gay Games". I find it absolutely hilarious!

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

I find it funny that they missed the REALLY gay stuff in GTA4 because they obviously didn't play it long enough. The Bioshock on is just plain wrong. I don't remember there being STDs in Fallout 3, but I never banged anyone in the game either. "The longer you talk to someone, the more likely they are to respond to profanity." I'm guessing this happens to them in real life as well. The Mass Effect part sounds like it was ripped directly from Fox News with no one ever even seeing the game (calling it an FPS). And it's certainly the first times I've heard Hellgate: London referred to as "realistic". Amd they forgot to mention the "drill in the eye" part of Silent Hill Homecoming (I think that's still in there. I haven't seen that scene as I haven't played SHH long enough). I find it odd they call the "pimping" of your weapons in Army of Two gay, since it seems more like something along the lines of 50 Cent culture.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

This is sad, they half assed the research. I'm not even all the way through it and I've spotted several mix ups or probably out right lies. They appear to have the "gist" of it but when they go into details they show how little they actually looked at these various games.


Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

Yeah, I noticed several..

Not once in Crackdown did the enemy women offered sex as a weapon againts me. Either that or I was too busy blowing shit up to care.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

It was insinuated as being something to avoid in the dosier (dah-see-ay?) for that one Los Muertos woman you needed to put down.  Something about her using sex as a weapon or something.  I kinda kicked her off the roof and into the ocean before that point, so...  ^^;

"HEY! LISTEN!"

"HEY! LISTEN!"

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

 At least they did the research.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

Why "Hell" or "goddamn" are shown as offensive words? I mean it's just stupid.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

Sounds like those fellers that were covered a while back on this site that wanted 'profanity' to be made a felony.

These guys are absolutely bat-**** insane, straight to the care. They actually make Thompson look tame.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

Doesn't beat some of my school teachers. My English teacher doesn't even like non-profane terms like "retarded" while the history teacher I had last year only cared for the sake of his job. He didn't care if we cussed, and only censored us b/c he was a teacher. And he was a good man. English teacher is a pain in the ass.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund Manager

my alg 2 teacher's philoshophy for our last chapter was "swallow it and enjoy it"  when relating to what we were doing.

And she definately knew the other meaning.

She also didn't bat a eye when somebody punched me in the face in her class.  lol

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

Just my $.02, but as the brother of a mentally disabled person I do find the word "retarded" offensive. People throw around "you're retarded" in a very negative light and it is offensive to many people.

Now, is it profane? Nope. But just something to think about.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

Agreed.

"HEY! LISTEN!"

"HEY! LISTEN!"

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

Indeed, your stance on Person 1 using "retarded" to describe Person 2, whom Person 1 doesn't like, is sound, but what I mean is that I, an 18-year-old who has been called retarded many times over the course of his education alone, can understand people taking offense to it, but this teacher goes the extra mile and outright bans it in her room, along with "shut up" and other things that teachers usually don't give a shit about.

In this teacher's defense, she is very much against racism, which is a plus IMO.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

I fail to see how profanity and racism are related ...

except for racial slurs in which case I'd be surprised to find a teacher who didn't care about them or at least didn't feel obligated to try to lessen their use.

But anyway the banning of words is absolutely stupid and arbitrary.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

Agreed. Who gives a shit if the family around the kid cusses? They're gonna learn it eventually.

(Based on how my brother, whose daughter turns 7 in late August, hates it when people cuss around her, yet cusses himself when angry, regardless of whether or not she is there.)

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

It's up there with using "gay" as a pejorative, sadly.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

I've known openly gay people who do this.

The Schlafly family is absolutely insane. You think Thompson is bad, look up what she and her son have done.

Then there's Conservapedia, made by her son.

Holy **** on a **** with a conservative on top, you're right.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

wait- so all sex isn't rape?

From the same blog:

All heterosexual women are rape victims.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

Just want to point out that that blog is a far-left blog.  Showing that the extremes of both "sides" are equally insane (just with different messages).

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

Good lord, I forgot how insane the far left can be. The far right have been so busy being insane in open public that I needed something like that to jog my memory.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

It's not rape if she enjoyed it

Re: Conservative Phyllis Schlafly Talks Games with Fund ...

It's not rape if you yell "Surprise!"
