First of all, my respects and prayers go to the families of the victims of the DC Navy Yard shooting, and it was an unfortunate tragedy. But unfortunately, what pisses me off equally than the shooter is that the media and politicians go to find a scapegoat doing some Batman or Sherlock Holmes detective work like this: "Let's check out what was the shooter into. Was it a movie that he saw? No wait! It was this TV Show he was watching! Or wait! It was a book?" No, none of that. In their words it's that tired lame ass excuse of a scapegoat...video games! Yes, video games are what have caused him to do this kind of thing. It's never that the shooter should be held accountable for his actions, and it's never that he was messed up in the head!
Seriously folks, people have been killing people, since the dawn of mankind. Some killed without reason given, some with reason. But unfortunately, the bitch of Feinstein and the dumb ass of Rockefeller attack video games as if they were the scapegoat of EVERYTHING! It's never that he was messed up in the head, and I don't know, he wasn't raised properly as a child it can NEVER be that.
Well, they said that the shooter, Aaron Alexis was playing Call of Duty 16 hours a day. You see, as much as I loathe Call of Duty, I hate it more when games are used as a scapegoat for tragic event. Nine months ago, I remember that games like Dynasty Warriors, Mortal Kombat and Mass Effect were blamed over the Sandy Hook incident. Blaming a game that is set in feudal China, or a game where fighters use their fists, kicks and other supernatural power they got killing enemies made the shooter DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT?! Okay, so in this incident, all of a sudden he's Captain Price or Alex Mason and decided to shoot all those people in cold blood. Christ in Heaven, I mean, the media is so incredibly stupid using video games as a scapegoat for a shooting.
There is NEVER a logical explanation, and as I said in my rant of nine months ago about Jay Rockefeller introducing a bill to study violent video games, I don't call this democracy, it's HYPOCRISY. Now I remember someone commenting on that video saying that in 1927 there was a massacre at the Bath Elementary School. That was a good point he made, because in 1927 when that occured there WAS NO VIDEO GAMES!
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who caused the Columbine massacre were known to be into the video game Doom. Seung Hui Cho, who caused the Virginia Tech massacre was known to be in the video game Counterstrike. Yes, Doom and Counterstrike were the targets of blaming for these shootings by the one and only, Jack Thompson. These politicians both conservative and liberal don't get the damn point, and the point is...these shooters were all messed up in the head. Harris, Klebold and Cho were bullied and didn't bother to go and get help from parents and teachers, James Eagan Holmes was also messed up in the head and he got if from a movie, Adam Lanza was autistic and they blamed games.
It's NEVER THAT THEY ARE MESSED UP IN THE HEAD! If it isn't movies, if it isn't TV Shows, if it isn't comics, if it isn't a book, if it isn't music, to the media and the politicians IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT THEY'RE PLAYING! This is what completely angers me to my core. There has been killing before Pong was invented, people killed and died in the name of religion on this planet, militant non-believers in the USSR killed believers during the Stalin era, and were they playing video games? NO! DEFINITELY NO!
So that is all the rant I have to say about this issue. If you want to say something in respect to this, go ahead. Comment, express your own opinions. So to conclude this, I will be praying for the families of the victims of this tragic event.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers!
