Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin


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.

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

    Ironically, there was a picture of him "there" this morning. It was a demotivational poster with the picture of him hanging onto a pole, with a caption "Jack Thompson – so disbarred he can’t practice the law of gravity".

    Of course I saved it. I have a whole folder of demotivational posters that make me laugh.

    I’m with you. I’ve never done drugs, never been drunk (although I do drink something if I’m having trouble falling asleep, just don’t drink much), have quit drinking caffeine, never been arested, and top of my class through college (I got a B once in English).  And yet, gaming has been central to my life since the old FF1 days (shoot I even had an old pong TV game that needed a 9V battery to play).

    Basically, JT likes to think of gamers in a particular social demographic, but one that very few gamers actually fit into. But by blatently ignoring that any gamers fall outside his skewed demographic, or dismissing them as statistically insignificant, he shows how narrow his vision is.

    Please compare these two factors. How many murderers played GTAIV before killing someone? How many murderers read the bible before murdering someone? I wouldn’t condone banning (or even restricting the reading of) the bible, yet it seems to have been prevalent in more crimes then all videogames put together (to be fair it has been out longer).

    Let’s take something a little more fair. How many crimes have been linked to any game in the GTA series? Four, five? More? Now, how many of those games have sold? 25 million? 30 million? Now we are talking statistically insignificant.

    I’d like to point out this here is proof that we aren’t just hating on Jack. We only react to the stuff he actually does. Someone made a claim against JT that wasn’t accurate and several people stepped up to say it wasn’t the case. When we laugh at him and make fun of him, it’s only for the things he is really doing.

    I’d wait until AFTER Oct 25, when he gets hit with the bigger reality brick. Because you know he will either 1) get slapped with the biggest First Amendment infringement suit in American history or 2) get smacked across the cheeks when he tries the old "big bad lawyer gonna get you!" stunt under the false notion that "I’m still an attorney! I’m not disbarred! I CAN’T be disbarred! I’M INVINCIBLE!!"

    Because you know at least one of those is going to happen. Either way, I see federal prison in Jack’s future.

    …How’d you fix the icing problem?

    I’m using that line from Iron Man any time someone tells me they or something of theirs is better than me or something of mine. In case you haven’t seen it, early in the film Iron Man discovered that when he tried to fly at high altitudes, his armor would ice over and fail due to the low temperatures. He corrected the problem with his next iteration of the armor.

    The line itself is used by Iron Man, who leads Iron Monger into those high altitudes during the climax. When Monger does catch up to him, he claims that his armor is better than Iron Man’s in every way, prompting Iron Man’s question: "How’d you fix the icing problem?" Monger’s suit then ices over and fails, sending him hurtling back to Earth as Iron Man continues to hover.

    That’s the situation here. You’re claiming that you’re a better person than any one of us because you’re an attorney, and we’re not. We, however, have already discovered what happens when one acts the way you do: bad things happen, and they HURT. Most of us have corrected that problem–we don’t act like we own the world. That has garnered us rewards; some of us are well on our way to starting promising careers while others of us are already established in them. We’d surely be out of work if we slandered our supervisors, coworkers, and/or clients.

    You, on the other hand, continue to act childish and attack everyone, and have received very severe punishment for it. You’re about to lose your job over it, plus you have a very hefty fine that you’re going to have to pay back or face jail time. To anyone who knows who you are, your credibility is shot. Your status as an attorney is icing over, and is starting to fail.

    So I ask you again, how’d you fix that problem, Mr. Attorney?

    actually, this is wrong.

     

    the MPAA is an elective body that is privately owned to rate movies based on their content.  it is not government mandated however.

    having said that, most theatres in the united states have some sort of deal where they enforce the MPAA ratings system because if they do not and are caught, the MPAA will fine them for not IDing for age appropriate movies.  this is mainly done though to help theatres keep a "family friendly" reputation.

    if it was government mandated, then every movie ever made, big or small, would have to be subjected to the MPAA ratings system.  however, this is not true, because there are thousands and thousands of unrated movies in existence.  the downside though, to refusing classification, is that the film will never see play in large theatre chains, and will most likely be relegated to runs in privately owned cinemas and art house cinemas.

    the sole exclusion of this, as of right now, is pornography.  but that is only because our christian run society wants to tell people how to live their lives.  now, im not saying that pornography should be accessible by children, or that requiring age verification for it, or video games for that matter, is or isnt wrong, but i certainly am saying that the government has no voice in how parents should choose to raise their children.  particularly when every other week there is a news story about this or that senator getting caught in a subway restroom reeming some 21 year old intern in the ass, while at the same time condemning homosexuality.

    but quite honestly, all of this is irrelevant.  you, like every other politician on the planet, choose a topic and you fight it fervently and without logic, making a solitary (usually wrong) accusation and use that as leverage to try and shape the constitution to your closed-minded interpretation.

    you rally back and forth calling video games "murder simulators," but at the same time (from the best i can see, anyway) being completely oblivious to 90% of the content in said games. 

    the ESRB, just like the MPAA, are both counter productive to the first amendment of the constitution, and in any capacity of trying to mandate the classification of games or movies under either of them would be unconstitutional.  the theory of having them is logical, and i support it for what it is ment to do, but when games and movies have to be edited to meet guidelines set forth by either body to allow them to be marketed, that is unconstitutional in and of itself.

    the ratings systems were originally enacted to give patrons of said entertainment a general overview of what to expect upon using them, allowing the patrons themselves to determine whether they want to or want to allow their children to be subjected to the contents therein.  but now, thanks to the media rallying of the ratings system and people like tipper gore, the ratings system is basically an entertainment illuminati.

    whats next?  are you going to rally to shut down all broadcast radio stations that play rock and roll and rap music, citing the "negative influence they have on the mental health and stability of our children?"

    my point is this, you are choosing to focus on video games as the cause for societies ills, claiming that young children have impressionable minds that are being corrupted by video games.  now, i dont necessarily disagree with that, but saying that video games are the sole factor in school shootings, or the stabbings in london, or the taxi cab killing in thailand, or whatever else, is extremely closed-minded and poorly judged on your part.  could it be a large factor?  yeah, sure, why not.  however, it all stems from simple neglect on the part of the parents for not taking a more active role in raising their children.  and the government has no place sticking their hand in such matters.  if a kid is allowed by their parent to play grand theft auto for 12 hours a day, it is not take two’s fault if the kid goes bananas and stabs his friend in the neck, it is the parents fault for not slapping the kid and telling them to put the controller down for a little while.

    You do realize that Spike is the embodiment of pretty much everything you’ve ever fought against, right Jack? They’re all about boobs, explosions, and fast cars. And the video game "award" show to which you’ve been invited is widely considered the joke of the industry. Hey, you’ve got something in common after all.

    So I would actually feel pity for you on account of the lambasting you’re about to receive on Spike, or by those who view it, but since you are incapable of feeling pity, remorse, guilt, shame, or any of a number of other emotions, I won’t bother.

    Sure, they’re enforced, but way worse then video games. At 16 I went to see Saw 3 and wasn’t carded. Then when I went to see Rambo, way more violent than any video game I play, not only was I not carded, I also wasn’t even checked to see if I had a ticket.

    I’d be hard pressed to buy an M rated game now without being carded, from anywhere.

    Why don’t you do a little research besides misquoting APA reports, and sending in your one son into one Best Buy to buy one game?

Well, I looked it up and it only shows up in fundamentalist Christian writings not the ancient Greeks like he claimed.  Remember that law that he guaranteed was constitutional?  Remember jackandgoliath.com?  He also loves to cite a study from Indiana University medical but the study doesn’t say anything like what he claims it does.  This "40+ states regulate movies on content" is just the latest of his bluster.  If you want to talk about pornographic films then sure they are regulated but that isn’t what is being discussed.  The MPAA ratings are not enforced by law. Period. Jacko is the one blustering. It is up to Jacko to provide the evidence.  Until then he can huff and puff but he’ll never blow my house down…

     Fact of the matter is, no state has laws requiring regulation of Movie theaters.  Otherwise, when I got see R-Rated comedies and horror movies, I wouldn’t be sitting in a theater with a bunch of thirteen year olds.  Now, THANK GOD, most theaters will throw those fucking kids out if you ask, and there’s an usher at the theater I go to who I’ve been calling ‘Johnny Law’ because if you go outside and tell him something’s up, he comes down on those kids like the fucking police on a drug dealer, which is really hilarious to watch.

    I think that’s it for me for now, I’m going to the firing range (unless he’s said something else fucktarded).

    Foaming Nutcase to one side, the idea of regulating only games in the US would be pretty stupid right now anyway, and Congress knows that, by alienating the entire IT sector, you push them into other countries like Canada, the UK etc, where games may be regulated, but they aren’t victimised.  Right now, the very last thing the US needs to be doing is pushing its profit-making enterprises offshore, they’ve got enough financial problems, without deliberately creating more.

    Whilst I, as a UK citizen, would welcome the increased revenue and jobs from the games companies that the US would alienate by doing this, I’m pretty sure that our US posters would feel, and vote, otherwise about losing that revenue and employment.

    So even if it was a plausible idea, which it isn’t, it still wouldn’t happen.

    I’m just glad the state of Fl., which I thankfully live up in Panama City FAR from Jack, has come to it senses and is righting the wrong of giving this nutcase a license to practice law in the first place.

    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.

     

    Cite your references or it didn’t happen, Jack.

    Hahaha Jack, a large of portion M-rated games bought for children are by their parents( don’t have anything to back it up right now but I remember some stats.  Look for em’).  Even if you ban M-rated sales to underage teeenagers,  many of their parents will still buy it for them.  Parental education is the key, and even then if the parents let their kids play M-rated games then so be it.

    Explain why my town of East Lansing has a much lower crime rate than Inner Lansing when kids here all can afford video games(violent ones too) while many kids there won’t have money for that.  That’s right Jack,  poverty and many other factors affect how teenagers grow and behave.  Video games are not one of them.

    Awwww look, it is Jack milking his last 1 minute of his 15 minutes of fame.

    Wow in my opinion the crackpot wants to hog a little bit of the spotlight before it flickers out. Jack, do yourself a favor. Go and be a good father for once, and stop harassing others. Quit lying too, it doesn’t make you look good…never did actually. More and more you are looking even more ridiculous and scummy, you ex-ambulence/massacre chaser. By the way, it seems to me you are still suffering narcassistic personality disorder, you might want to check into that…

    James Fletcher, not an attorney but neither is Jack in a couple of weeks.

    ps: Enjoy your disbarrment, jackass! Love you :)

    What, is he counting every minute of 60 Minutes for each appearance? Or just the number of TV stations the show has aired on?

    Either way, I don’t see it adding up to 200, even when you include the other (non-public access) shows he’s been on.
