View Full Version : Jack Thompson on Game Evolution (Funny Read)

08-16-05, 07:30 AM

The article gives a quick run through of his past and his recent dealings with bolt.com, He's trying to get the president of the company arrested...

More proof that he's a nut? Take his political campaign against Florida Attorney General Janet Reno back in 1988 (yes THAT Janet Reno), which consisted of calling her a closet lesbian who was being blackmailed by the mob. At a public debate, he actually walked up to her and handed her a piece of paper that read:

I, Janet Reno, am a
[ ] Homosexual
[ ] Bisexual
[ ] Heterosexual

and demanded that she check one of the boxes. No, really, he did. You just can't make stuff like this up, it's too weird. You might also get a good laugh from his bizarre email exchanges with Scott Ramsoomair over at VG Cats (http://www.vgcats.com/jack.php) and Ryan Acheson from The Horror Channel. He even e-mailed me personally about my recent article on video game violence, but did not respond to a request for an interview.

This guy is just messed up... seriously. I thought his hate on violent videogames was bad but dam...

I don't understand how he can be considered seriously with his attitude, he sounds like a little kid in alot of his letters.

Heh, these are pro and cons of freedom of speech:

Pro: Everyone is entitled to have an opinion and express it...

Cons: ...idiots, too.

Jack Thompson is definatly off his nut.

But I have to agree I think there is something seriously wrong with Janet Reno.

I love how he yammers about a free society, then proceeds to try and ban violent games and tries to get somebody jailed for an animated gif.

Hypocrisy and double standards at their finest.

"You can do whatever the hell you want because it's a free society....as long as I don't disagree with it."

Free society? HAHAHAHA.

Don't you know the golden rule? People with the gold make the rules. As much as you hate it that's basically how it works today. Jack Thompson has got the $$$ so people let him get away with all kinds of stuff.
