Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

September 7, 2011 -

Newsmax has some rather slanted coverage of the Tea Party Zombies Must Die Flash-game we covered earlier, but what's noteworthy about the report is that it offers some comments from Glen Beck, who took issue with the game on his syndicated radio program this evening. On the show he said the following - according to Newsmax:

"This is one of the most violent things I’ve ever seen, where you’re walking in, you’re the zombie hunter and you’re walking in the front door of FOX News and you’re shooting me and Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann and Sean Hannity, you’re just shooting all of us or you’re cutting us in half with a machete."

Politics aside, if my mom is a zombie -- sorry mom - I’m going to cut her in half with a machete.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

I'll say it again

Got to love promoting a game that advocates killing conservatives and various Republicans. We know whenever a game remotely comes out attacking Democrats or the Lord Art God Obama it is condemned and ridiculed from this blog and other Liberal blogs out there.

But when its a conservative we can hehehe laugh about it drink koolaid and talk about white brotherhood I mean Liberal/Progressive brotherhood and giggle on how they overreact but dare they talk about us or our savior!

 

But to add to a comment here video games are an art form to some people until they dare make fun or go against their savior. Remember the Obama flash game the was quickly dismissed and panned here for being evil!

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

What is it like being an idiot? Does it make life easier?

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

"Remember the Obama flash game the was quickly dismissed and panned here for being evil!"

Actually, in all seriousness, I don't.  Do you happen to have a link?

 

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Thank you.  I have to say though, I dont see the article doing any of those things you mentioned, maybe the commenters did but the article didnt.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Big surprise, eh?

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

1. This article is not promoting the game.

2.  The game doesn't advocate "killing conservatives and various Republicans."

3.  As you're well aware, GamePolitics covers games critical of both parties.

4.  I've deleted your copy/pasted post from the earlier story covering (not promoting) this game.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

The article may not be promoting the game, but Glenn Beck's comments certainly were. Even if it was the opposite of his intentions, I've never wanted to play it more than I do now.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

"The article may not be promoting the game, but Glenn Beck's comments certainly were."

Uh, no they weren't.

Beck blasted the video game on his radio program Wednesday, stating: “This is one of the most violent things I’ve ever seen, where you’re walking in, you’re the zombie hunter and you’re walking in the front door of FOX News and you’re shooting me and Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann and Sean Hannity, you’re just shooting all of us or you’re cutting us in half with a machete.”

 
His comments may have upped your interest in the game but that doesn't mean he was promoting it.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

If you're trying to be semantic there, both Oxford and the online Dictionary.com are happy to suggest that you can promote something by giving it publicity or helping it to flourish.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Eh, fair enough.  The whole semantics game typically bores me, it's the intent and meaning that I find important.  Rereading your comment, yeah, that appears to be what you were going for in the first place so good on you.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

I didn't care much except for the people who seem to think assassinating the president is the answer to our country's woes, or that he is the sole cause.

Plus, Beck kind of deserves it, he's just butthurt that it's him in it.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

*snerks* Most violent thing he's ever seen? that explain a lot. He only sees it as hyper violent because HE is in it. If this was a liberal zombie killing game, he'd be in full support and be doing monologs about how the zombies are a perfect metaphor for liberals, and how the creator of said game deserves a metal for being a "true American patriot".

Of course this is the, man, who treated Jack Thompson like he has credibility.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

I stopped paying the slightest attention to Glen Beck long ago.

Didn't help when he compared swedes running a political youth group to Hitler Jugend, despite him having his own damn group. Hypocrites, american conservatives you are them.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

He left out the part about him, sarah, and michelle being ZOMBIES in the game. Minor point i'm sure.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

We can't let facts get in the way of a story!

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

I read another story that quoted Beck as saying that he just couldn't get worked up about it. I don't really care for Beck or any of these right OR left wing talking head guys but from what I read he didn't really condem the game.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

That was probably before he'd seen it. Once he'd seen a few screenshots, well THEN he's got an opinion!

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Or when he realized having an opinion would generate attention. The guy's not so much a conservative talking head as he is a professional troll. This wouldn't be the first time he's expressed having little opinion or even (insert gasp here) a moderate opinion, and then made an about-face when presumably somebody on his staff told him he could get his listeners worked up over it.

And by "not the first time" I mean this week. Near the end there, about all Olberman did to justify his show was daily calling out Beck and people like him for changing their opinions for the sake of getting their viewers angry at somebody.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

meanwhile, Beck has no qualms against doing the same to Muslims.

岩「…I can see why Hasselbeck's worried about fake guns killing fake people. afterall, she's a fake journalist on a fake news channel」

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

or gays, minorities or anyone he sees as not worthy.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Well, let's make a game called "Liberal Zombies Must Die" and see how he feels about that!

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Whoa.  I get that you don't like the guy, but the hyperbole is getting a bit thick. 

Beck may suck but he has not said that he wants what is being done in the game to be done to Muslims and Gays. 

The Right is making a big stink over this and looks hyper reactive and childish, but you guys are not looking any better by by comparison when you say BS like that.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

No, the guy just hates games. Otherwise, if he loved killing Muslims, he'd be on Call of Duty, and if he loved killing gays, he'd be on World of Warcraft!

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Well, video games are an art form and a way of expressing ideas, and he would hate anything that would give people ideas he didn't prescribe, or, more importantly to him, ate up his ratings, he would hate it.

Re: Glen Beck on Tea Party Zombies Must Die

Yep.  This is the same guy who had JT on his show after all.
