Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

October 10, 2008 -

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

Hey, Dennis, you and your Mormonic moderator have ten minutes to take this down:

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

I can see why you're frisky, after perusing those gay porn sites this morning at 4am...

ATTENTION, GAMER IDIOTS! HUGE STORY ABOUT TO BREAK REGARDING SAINTS ROW 2, COURTESY OF JACK THOMPSON, ATTORNEY. YOU’RE WELCOME, KIDS!

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Poor, poor Jack....

Can't take a little criticism on the interwebs....

boohoo!

Facts:

1) You are "up" at 4am

2) You are frisky

3) You have admiited that you signed up for a gay porn site

4) You sent copies of gay porn in a court filing

5) You've sent descriptions of gay porn movies ina court filing

6) You continually call the Florida Bar gay

Can you see where people would come up with these conclusions?

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Careful, Dennis. He could file a defamation lawsuit.

Assuming someone else would sign it for him.

Then, as soon as someone doesn't bother reading it, he'll have you right where he wants you.

Then... Well, then he'll probably call your mom and tell her you sell porn to kids or something.

Everything's coming up Jack.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

John Bruce, Dennis has not told me to delete that post. SO I won't until he says to. Also, deleting that post will do nothing as you have reposted it in its entirety in you own comment.

As has been stated by others just now, you have accused people of being meth and pot addicts in this very thread. Many of whom I know have never touched the stuff. Is that grounds to delete your posts? If I did, you would claim that I was stopping you from defending yourself.

I am just glad you have not felt the need to spam this thread with your idiotic letters and filings.

One more thing, The post count here may have only reached the hundreds if you had not showed up and acted like a complete idiot and a jerk. We often have 100+ discussion that do not involve you. So GamePolitics and the ECA owes you nothing as you have brought them nothing. THis site hosts ads for free from nonprofit organizations. So no money is exchanging hands.

So follow your own advice and grow up and get a life.

One last thing, as of this writing my Countdown to Jack Thompson's Disbarment timer is telling me you have 13 days, 5 hours, 38 minutes and 26 seconds till you need to change your signature.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

 Or Else...?

This is why you get banned, Jack.  That was phrased as a threat, and threatening posts are the REASON you get banned.  Dumbass.

It's okay...

It's alright Jack, you can come out now. None of us will think any different of you. It's okay to be who you are.

It is funny though, considering how you accused people of being Crystal Meth addicts...did anyone threaten you?

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Seriously dude, learn to loosen up. So you were looking at gay porn. Hey, to each his own, we're not here to judge. Besides if I were you (and I am so thankful everyday that I'm not, btw) I'd be focusing more on that being disbarred in two weeks thing than making threats on an internet forum. But again, to each his own, right?

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

What's funny is that he posted it again, just for those who missed it the first time.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

As I said before, tough.

You can accuse people of having cannabis hangovers, or being on crystal meth, but the moment people retort, you expose just how much of a spineless little wimp you are, you can't take the heat, or you have a guilty conscience, one of the two.

He wasn't insulting the moderators. He called them "Mormonic".  Which I would guess is a new branch in the Mormon church.


Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

As always, Thompson, you desperate peice of crap, you fail to see to what your doing and you don't learn from your mistakes ever.  How many more times do you have to this in order see how stupid you are? I mean really? Are you that pathetic that you have to write to GOP party's vice president in order to save your ass? Kiss it goodbye Jack, your done as a lawyer and you lost. Game over.

 

Anyone eles agree with me when I say this?

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

A little history lesson:  Joe Lieberman started the effort against the sale of Mature-rated games to kids.  I have worked with his office for ten years.  In the first Presidential debate among the GOP candidates in 2000, Lieberman called for restrictions on the sale of these games.  The debate was moderated by Tom Brokaw.  I had been on NBC Nightly News that same evening on the same issue.  I have a letter from Lieberman thanking me for my efforts.

A McCain administration will get through Congress a bill banning the sale of mature games to kids.  A Hillary Clinton administration would have done the same thing.  Surely you gamers support such a restriction, as that is the logic of the game ratings, and it is the law everywhere else.

An Obama Administration will concentrate on one thing:  Raising your taxes. 

Having said that, I want to thank you all for the nearly 500 posts.  It's clear that "You like me.  You really, really like me." with apologies to Sally Field.

Now, Hal Halpin, how about that debate?  Jack Thompson

 

 

ATTENTION, GAMER IDIOTS! HUGE STORY ABOUT TO BREAK REGARDING SAINTS ROW 2, COURTESY OF JACK THOMPSON, ATTORNEY. YOU’RE WELCOME, KIDS!

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His "Expertise" to Sarah Palin

You're talking about the same Joseph Lieberman that is apparently refusing to take any of your calls or e-mails now and the very same Joseph Lieberman that has on record, in an 2002 interview with USA Today, called the ESRB rating system "the best ratings system in the entire entertainment industry".

The courts would strike down any attempt by McCain or Hilary "Paris Hilton" Clinton to ban sales of M-rated video games to minors as unconstitutional under the First and Fourteenth Amendment faster than you can catch the chupacabra. Especially considering that sales of M-rated games to minors by themselves represent only 1 or 2% of all video game sales. Besides that, movie ratings aren't enforced by law.

And besides that, Obama almost has the election locked for him now. And an Obama Administration would only raise the taxes of pepole that make more than $250,000 a year while giving more tax relief to middle class families, retard.

Sure, apologize to "The Flying Nun", but not to everybody else you've insulted and harassed over the years. Everybody hates your worthless ass, jabroni.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

You want a history lesson?  I have a history lesson for you.  The MPAA has been around since 1922.  And its ratings do NOT have force of law like you think is so "logical" for the ratings of the ESRB.  Furthermore who cares if it is the law everywhere else?  This isn't "everywhere else" this is America you stooge.  So excuse us if we are a mite defensive about our freedoms.  Don't like it?  Move to Thailand.  They, like you with the Cody Posey case, think that video games are somehow a worse influence on a younger person than sexual assault.

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

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

 "A McCain administration will get through Congress a bill banning the sale of mature games to kids. "

Which would then be swiftly overturned in court as unconstitutional, either because of equal protection or the fact that the ESRB rating system is not regulated by the government, which makes it non-enforcable.

You really are an idiot, aren't you Jack?

 

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

We don't like you, we laugh at you, there's a difference :)

You are poison to everyone you touch though, aren't you Jack, you support Vaz? Ethics breach. You support Spitzer? Ethics breach. You support Palin? Ethics breach.

They say you can tell a lot about a man from the friends he chooses, and you, at least are consistent in choosing people that act like yourself.

 

And as for what is law 'everywhere else', speaking as someone from 'everywhere else', you've conveniently forgotten that those laws are applied to all media and are not designed to single out Video Games, we've been saying for as many years as you've been trolling on here that the biggest problem with your approach is that one single fact. Alas, it's never sunk in, and now it's too late for you to learn.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Again, you lie and deceive.

The ESRB is NOT a regulation tool.

The ESRB is NOT for dictating what is or is not appropriate for ANYONE.

The ESRB is for INFORMING individuals and Parents about content.  It is a resource.  Just as the MPAA is a resource.  Just the TV rating system is a resource.  Just as the many private rating systems are a resource.

They are TOOLS for individuals and Parents to use.

Just as the Nutritional Facts labels are for informing, not dictating.

Just as the multitudes of private consumer review guides out there are for individuals and Parents to make their own decisions as to what is in the best interest of themselves and their family.

Intelligent individuals and Parents research, without being dictated to by individuals, organizations, and/or the government, the places they live, the insurance they buy, the jobs they want to work at, the vehicles the ride in, the food they eat, and thousands of other things.

YOU, however, like so many others, believe YOUR version of morality is superior to everyone else's.  It's what forced the creation of "coummunity standards" and "public nuisance" laws, among so many other laws.  People thought that because they were of a particular religion, their beliefs must be superior to everyone else's.  Hence, they crafted a way to stick their foot in the door.  While the creation of "community standards" and "public nuisance" laws were argued using what seemed reasonable reasons.  Once enacted, though, everyone and their messiah screamed that if something else they personally didn't like wasn't moved or removed from shelves, to "protect the children", they would bring down the hammer of "community standards" and/or "Public nuisance" laws.  Sound familiar?  Their theory was to confuse the rest of society by saying "I'm a Christian, hence morally superior, hence if I find something inappropriate for myself and my family, then you should too!  If not, then you're violating MY Rights and trying to harm children!"

We've seen you pull enough fast ones and lie and deceive others to get your way, John Bruce.  Any law you push is clearly designed to be enacted so you can use it later to go even further than what you claim now.  The same as with "community standards" and "public nuisance" laws.  You've already proven it through your own actions.

The fact is, John Bruce, we the individuals and Parents of the US, let alone the world, do NOT need YOU, any organization you represent, or any government entity you represent or support dictating to us what is or is not appropriate for us or our children in any way, shape, or form.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Hey Jack,

You can't possibly say that you make this site successful.  If that were true, then all your half-assed websites would be flourishing.  We read the news about other topics and enjoy it.  However when you talk, we feel like talking to the fool directly. 

For example, if Hitler was presenting in a mall on a soapbox surrounded by a crowd of Jewish people, you can be sure there would be lots of comments to him directly.  It doesn't mean that the mall isn't fun or interesting.  Hitler didn't make the mall popular, but he certainly made it louder.

I think Palin may be a bit too busy to read Jack's Email...

Fortelling the true end of Jack Thompson

At last, I have arrived at a theory.

All the users of GamePolitics.com shall be partially responsible for when Jack gets arrested after Oct. 25th for impersonating an attourney.

Look at this man.  He's convinced with reckless abandon that he's right.  He is completely unable to see wht he's gotten himself into.  When he talks about games killing people and people he dislikes being porn peddlers, it's not because he's trying to lie.  It's because he actually believes that.  And he's determined to not stop because God has given him over to his lies.

And here?  We goad him on.  Granted, Jack always starts it, but by now we're like a crowd at the bottom of a skycraper urging a poor soul to jump, to see how far he can bounce.  Of course, what's incredible is that Jack doesn't want to jump because he's depressed.  He wants to jump because he believes he can fly.

Stop a moment and think about the disgusting red splatter that's about to appear on the pavement before you jeer any further.  You can argue that Jack is an exception to the decency rule because he's so far out there, but nothing that's going on here is helping anyone.  Not Jack, not the commenters, not even the website itself.  All this traffic means nothing when it's so hollow.

Re: Fortelling the true end of Jack Thompson

Certainly in Jack's eyes we will be responsible, but Thompson's escapades are not limited to this forum or these people, not by a long shot. Most of what destroyed Thompson was nothing to do with what happened on here, or what was said on here, he chose to act in a certain manner, a manner that was not allowed under the Bar's code of conduct, he's a 50 year old man, that is his own choice to make, and the Freedom to take responsibility for your actions is the one freedom that precedes every other.

Jack posts here in order to promote a reaction, personally, I'd love to just ignore him, which is why he deliberately posts what is known as 'flamebait', i.e. something deliberately designed to create a strong reaction.

We aren't at the bottom of a skyscraper jeering at him about to jump, I'd say a better comparison would be that we are people in the public box that a convicted man hurls insults and threats at whilst being led off to jail, the difference here is, we respond to those insults, because we have a right to defend our point of view, and to react when insulted, if I turned around and called you a moron for posting what you have, you would react, would you not? You would defend yourself. Why then would you deny that right when Jack does exactly that to us?

 

And just to clarify, I don't think you are a moron for posting that, it's an example, you do raise some interesting points, but I do think you are misinterpreting what is going on here.

Re: Fortelling the true end of Jack Thompson

All true, very much so.  BUT... I said what I did because he's been disbarred.  We have our ultimate victory now, and more will follow.  Do we really need to keep this up?

If you turned around and called me a moron?  Actually nah, I wouldn't bother defending myself because such a statement is baseless, like all the ones Jack has made here.  I'm secure in who I am and don't need to defend my pride from people who randomly pass by.  But if you were to logically deconstruct my argument and show me what's flawed in it, why yes, I would defend myself.  I'm only interested in reacting to things that can lead to one or more parties being built up and improved.

So it's been a pleasure to defend myself against you.  But whenever Jack shows up to sucker people, that's when we can rag on him.  Here in this topic... sheesh guys, he's like a cripple.  All he can do is shout "Drink!  Feck!  Girls!" so it would be better to slam the door in his face until he's relevant again.

Or send him to Craggy Island.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

Now regarding your actions over the past 18 (Correct me if I'm mistaken) years, and your Disbarment (That means you can't call yourself a Lawyer anymore, and congrats, it couldn't happen to a better person), YOU, sir, are in no position to even TRY and pull something like this off again, Jacky boy.

And I'd like to tell you this if you haven't realized it allready, but you should be looking for a new career, because "Game Avenger" and "FORMER Attorney" don't look so good on a resume when trying to get work at the local Seven Eleven.

And who's Dough Lowenstein? The Marshmallow mans' cousin?

 

Seems to me there's only one kid here trying to promote a reaction, and instead, made himself look like the Jackass.

Re: Jack Thompson Offers His Expertise to Sarah Palin

And who's Dough Lowenstein? The Marshmallow mans' cousin?

Wasn't aware ol' Stay-Puft had any family. Course I always thought if he did that perhaps that Pilsbury guy was a distant cousin of his or something.

Matthew Wilsonok than they should not protest when the consequences of that choice occur.04/17/2014 - 1:06pm
NeenekoIf people want tall buildings, plenty of other cities with them. Part of freedom and markets is communities deciding what they do and do not want built in their collective space.04/17/2014 - 12:55pm
Sora-ChanI realize that they have ways getting around it, but one reason might be due to earthquakes.04/17/2014 - 4:42am
Matthew WilsonSF is a tech/ economic/ trade center it should be mostly tail building. this whole problem is because of the lack of tail buildings. How would having tail apartment buildings destroy SF? having tail buildings has not runed other cities around the US/world04/16/2014 - 10:51pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the issue is you can not build upwards anywhere in SF at the moment, and no you would not. You would bring prices to where they should have been before the market distortion. those prices are not economic or socially healthy.04/16/2014 - 10:46pm
ZippyDSMleeYou still wind up pushing people out of the non high rise aeras but tis least damage you can do all things considered.04/16/2014 - 10:26pm
ZippyDSMleeANd by mindlessly building upward you make it like every place else hurting property prices,ect,ect. You'll have to slowly segment the region into aeras where you will never build upward then alow some aeras to build upward.04/16/2014 - 10:25pm
Matthew WilsonSF have to build upwards they have natural growth limits. they can not grow outwards. ps growing outwards is terable just look at Orlando or Austin for that.04/16/2014 - 4:15pm
ZippyDSMleeIf they built upward then it would becoem like every other place making it worthless, if they don't build upward they will price people out making it worthless, what they need to do is a mix of things not just one exstreme or another.04/16/2014 - 4:00pm
Matthew Wilsonyou know the problem in SF was not the free market going wrong right? it was government distortion. by not allowing tall buildings to be build they limited supply. that is not free market.04/16/2014 - 3:48pm
ZippyDSMleeOh gaaa the free market is a lie as its currently leading them to no one living there becuse they can not afford it makign it worthless.04/16/2014 - 3:24pm
Matthew WilsonIf you have not read http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/introducing-steam-gauge-ars-reveals-steams-most-popular-games/ you should. It is a bit stats heavy, but worth the read.04/16/2014 - 2:04pm
Matthew Wilsonthe issue is when is doesn't work it can screw over millions in new york city's case. more often than not it is better to let the free market run its course without market distortion.04/16/2014 - 9:36am
NeenekoTrue, and overdone stagnation is a problem. It is a tricky balance. It does not help that when it does work, no one notices. Most people here have benifited from rent controls and not even realized it.04/16/2014 - 9:23am

ZippyDSMleeEither way you get stagnation as people can not afford the prices they set.04/16/2014 - 8:47am
Neenekowell, specifically it helps people already living there and hurts people who want to live there instead. As for 'way more hurt', majorities generally need less legal protection. yes it hurt more people then it helped, it was written for a minority04/16/2014 - 8:30am
MaskedPixelantehttp://torrentfreak.com/square-enix-drm-boosts-profits-and-its-here-to-stay-140415/ Square proves how incredibly out of touch they are by saying that DRM is the way of the future, and is here to stay.04/16/2014 - 8:29am
