I’m sure all of you have heard about that UN report on “cyberviolence against women” that Anita Sarkeesian was involved with. The report is bad enough that it treats discredited attorney and game critic, Jack Thompson, as a legitimate source on video games. However, that report is much worse since Jack Thompson is one of the report’s better sources on video games. That’s because the report treats Lyndon LaRouche as a legitimate source. Yes, the same Lyndon LaRouche who is always running for president and is a batshit insane conspiracy theorist who thinks the British are behind everything bad that happens in the world and that the Queen of England runs the international drug trade. Here is an example of what LaRouche had to say about video games:
On March 3, in a dialogue with Hispanic-American leaders, LaRouche said:
“We’re getting killings which are caused by the use of Nintendo-style games, such as the game Pokémon, with children, and also with police and others. In the case of the Diallo shooting, the problem was that the Mayor of New York, like many other officials, has been training the police force in Nintendo-style killing techniques. . . . So we have Nintendo-killers.
The UN and Anita Sarkeesian have turned LaRouche’s “Nintendo killers” into “Nintendo rapists”, but it’s all the same. The UN by including this in a report on “cyberviolence against women” is now saying Pokémon turns boys into rapists. And don’t forget that Pokémon (along with Dungeons & Dragons) is a satanic conspiracy:
Hasbro Interactive: Official U.S. distributor of Pokémon (abbreviation for “Pocket Monsters”), the killing game designed for toddlers beginning at 2 and 3 years old; Dungeons and Dragons, the medieval satanic and magic fantasy game; Risk II, a “ruthless quest for world domination”. One of the Hasbro Board members is Paul Wolfowitz, the co-head of George W. Bush’s team of foreign policy advisors.
What we have got now is that the UN and Anita Sarkeesian are effectively endorsing the idea that video games are a satanic conspiracy to turn boys and men into rapists because they’re using LaRouche as a source for this report. They should have stuck with Jack Thompson because even he wasn’t this insane.
Since the UN and Anita Sarkeesian consider Lyndon LaRouche to be an expert on video games, they probably will start using other conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones and David Icke as sources for further reports on “cyberviolence against women”. Since David Icke invented the shapeshifting reptile alien conspiracy theory, I expect that the next report on “cyberviolence against women” will accuse gamers of being shapeshifting reptile aliens who secretly rule the world. This may sound too insane to happen, but we would have thought the same a couple of weeks ago about the UN and Anita Sarkeesian using LaRouche as a legitimate source about video games.
