Fox News On Sim City Societies - YouTube

This was so funny i thought it came from the Onion , but the sad story it came from Fox News and people probably believe it. SCS or SC4 is about building cities dirty or clean , big or small. They don't punish you for being dirty , you just see how it affects your region and city which is not in a good way unless your a poor city.

How about the new video game, where you get to stalk and kill Conservatives like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Glenn Beck and many other Conservative talking heads.

Stupid game by some strange guy that no one will buy in mass.

However it is Freedom of Speech, even if I disagree with its message (bein the guy is obviously political). Best you can do is try to look at it non seriously and maybe see some dark humor in it.

As if anyone playing Sim City will try to go green. The whole fun of Sim City is to build a city and then hit it with disaster after disaster.

You ignore it, instead of using it to feed your already bloated persecution complex, since it's an irrelevant game that noone but hateful idiots with too much money will buy.

Kind of like this game: R E S I S T A N C E * R E C O R D S NEWS from 2003, which grabbed the headlines, then sold very few units.

If we can have video games in which one can kill conservatives, why can't we also have video games in which we can kill gays or men wearing long robes and turbans? How would that fly with libs?

Who said you couldn't have a game in which you kill gay men or men wearing long robes and turbans?

If you want one...create one, hire somebody to do it for you...just don't expect this liberal gay male to buy it.

In my opinion it would be just as idiotic as a game in which conservatives are killed.

Anybody who enjoys these types of games is suspect in my opinion...and that applies equally to liberals and conservatives...gay, straight or anybody in between.

EDIT: For a liberal or conservative bias at that...

I don't play video games. I'm not of a generation that enjoys them. I threw out the "kill the gays or Muslims" video idea just to say that hateful video games is a sword that cuts both ways.
