It's hilarious that the right is acting like they're above "it." Yeah right assholes. Personally, I find stuff like this tacky but the right has no room at all to whine whatsoever abotu violent rhetoric at all.

This game looks lame and tone-deaf. That said, I do find the teabaggers' butthurt response hilarious. Also, the "radical, pro-Obama left"? Yeah, not like those moderate, level-headed leftists who plan on voting for Perry.

Right wing freaks out over

re: #2 Atlas Fails

This game looks lame and tone-deaf.

I played it earlier, and it is lame. Doom 1 graphics, shit collision detection, and no strafing option. I couldn't get past zombie Beck.

In between levels, the screen displays factoids about Fox News' malfeasance, so I'm not surprised they're jumping on this.

I also played a little of that "Kung-Fu Election" back in '08. Very basic fighter, but kind of fun.

MBF break:

Don't forget though the berserk screeching and protest of the LEFT and its drug user allies against South Park's hippie drill game, which involved driving a mechanized drill through a mob of hippies to reach a stage.

What? They either ignored it or laughed their asses off?

Never mind.

Stupid idiotic game. And games like this always fucking suck. It's like the left behind game. Anytime you've got a game with a MESSAGE, the game itself sucks.

No connection to Hoffa at all, of course. Or to anything else. And of course any Democrat who's asked and actually bothers to reply about a game they have no connection to will condemn it.

If the Tea Party and Fox and GOP are really now concerned about violent rhetoric, that's great. Let's start seeing them ask tough questions of the GOP members-- elected officials and candidates and talking heads-- who have called for violence. Including, of course, people on Fox.

The right and Fox may have overreacted, and the game has nothing to do with Hoffa. That said, it is a stupid game and not helpful at all.

I would not like it one bit if there was a game out there strictly targeting high profile Democrats...

I think all games like this should be condemned.

Right, it's a private citizen, who doesn't seem to be associated with some larger political org, making an irresponsible bit of partisan media. It doesn't reflect on anyone except that individual. Indie devs do this sort of thing daily, and of course so do lots of other private citizens creating partisan or fringe content in other mediums (YouTube videos, Photoshops, etc). It's just what you get at the nexus of modern technology, the internet & freedom of expression (obviously there's no requirement that a private citizen's speech be responsible speech, or particularly worthwhile for that matter).

Does Fox really want the standard to be that every stupid bit of disturbing partisan media becomes a national story and that it needs to be denounced? I mean there's literally thousands of crazy partisan YouTube videos, racist & violent blog comments, disturbing Photoshops, creepy fanfics starring politicians, etc, created daily and if they're all going to be covered there won't be time for any other news.

This is exactly the kind of thing that deserves to be called out as wrong. Every time. It is no less wrong because of the source of the outrage or the potential hypocrisy in some quarters about it. Or what somebody on the internet said.

Wrong means wrong.

When we laugh at or encourage the wrong things that happen to attack our opponents or support our side, then we are wrong.

Wrong means wrong.

I dunno, ordinarily an indie dev game like this might pass, with little attention, into the massive garbage heap of forgotten internet content. Giving this idiot's flash game national coverage is ultimately going to drive a tone of traffic his way and will exponentially increase the page-views on his game.

It would be just as stupid if for example Huffpo started to daily feature stories linking to each new Obama-with-Satan-horns-antichrist YouTube video or whatever. They'd just be counter-productively pumping up the video's View stat & their search rank.

Just as an example of the point I'm trying to make, IMO, the Left would be making a big mistake if they ever drew national attention & traffic to this sort anti-Obama flash game:

Better to leave this sort of garbage mostly unnoticed, to disappear into the internet's dustbin of forgotten content.

No, rightwingers just demand an absolute monopoly on every utterance. The rest of us dhimmis are to comply/stfu or be eliminated. This idiotic game only makes them uncomfortable because it's a direct reflection of their own venal stupidity.

Pffft. This can't be an authentically liberal game unless the weapons are literally organic. Like sunflowers and venus flytraps and...

...oh.

Fun fun fun! Much better than Palin's magic JuJu Death Map, I couldn't even get the crosshairs to move on that one.

How hateful, how uncivil! Or as Gov. Palin would say: Don't retreat, reload.
