Trump kicked off video game meeting
with ´horrendously violent´ compilation,
participant says

Washington Examiner, by Steven Nelson

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/8/2018 6:12:50 PM

President Trump´s closed-door meeting Thursday with members of the video game industry, lawmakers, and cultural critics began with the president playing a compilation of "horrendously violent" gaming content on a laptop, a meeting participant said. The 2 p.m. meeting lasted about an hour and was entirely closed to the press, despite originally being advertised as partially open to the White House press pool. It´s unclear why Trump did not invite the press to cover the beginning of the event or the full discussion, as he has done with other White House events following the Valentine´s Day massacre of 17 people

Any references in the meeting to sh*thole countries where games are ´fought´, misogny, bigotry, homophobia, islamophobia, beastiality, etc, etc, etc....all sorts of culturally uplifting, moral character building video games that youth of today play....

The video gaming industry claims that video games have not murdered anyone, but it is clear that violent video games put “ideas” in the minds of some vulnerable mentally ill people, “ideas” that they would not have known about otherwise, who may or may not then go out and murder innocent people.

THIS is ABSOLUTELY contributing to the problem. There is NO doubt among rational people ...

... leftist journalists, Hollywood, and the “woke” however are another story.

Billions of dollars are spent on advertising it an effort to influence the way people think and entice them to buy into your message.

Why wouldn´t a steady consumption of violent images combined with violent "music" lyrics and movies and influence a certain percentage of vulnerable people?

Parents should monitor their kids, but...today these images are everywhere and catching all of it can be difficult for the most vigilant parent.

And then, you have the parents who are so afraid that their kids won´t like them that they let the kids see and do whatever they want to do.

Apparently Trump started the meeting by running a series of video clip on a large screen that were from some particularly violent video games, and then he asked the video game reps to explain themselves.

Its true that video games influence the mentally ill, but that´s not the only factor. How much do drugs influence the mentally ill? What about alcohol? What about broken families? Would guess video games are a small factor compared to others.

I´m glad Col. Grossman was there. He is compelling in his book "Assassination Generation". He was a psychology professor at West Point, where he was involved in understanding how to train young men for combat (killing); and more importantly; how does the military training NOT adversely affect the soldier after his return to peacetime service and civilian life?
He knows what he´s talking about in this area.
The gaming industry also knows they´re doing damage, but the money is just soooo good.

Agree with #7. I am certain that violence in those games has a negative effect, perhaps less than some other factors, like mental illness, alcohol, drugs, bad parenting, etc.

All you have to do is see some of these games and you will know there has to be some sort of negative effect, all those "video game violence doesn´t have ANY bad effects" studies be damned.

Who conducts these studies? Who paid for these studies? How do you know that they are not in the pay of the gaming industry or have some perverted ideological axe to grind?

The last video game I played was Pong, but I can´t believe that killing people with all the blood and gore cannot not have a negative affect on those playing the games. But then I´m a person who can´t stand to see a cat run over in the road. I think it has to desensitize these players. The definition of desensitize is: make (someone) less likely to feel shock or distress at scenes of cruelty, violence, or suffering by overexposure to such images.

Typical liberal buzztalk.
If a small group of people can´t handle something, then nobody should have it.
Put violent mentally ill people in institutional settings rather than trying to make society an institutional setting.

Color realists skeptical when it comes to science not backing up real-life violence as a result of violent video games, especially with revenue for the gaming industry at $4.7billion in2017, a 28 percent increase from $3.6billion in2016, and global revenue well over $60billion annually. Arguments resisting a correlation between violent video games and crime statistics citing a decrease in aggravated assaults unrelated to homicides avoid statistics based on age range. Most assuredly criminals vary in age; however, teenagers tend to be far more vulnerable to outside, popular influences and peer pressure with the potential for succumbing to violence.

Clockwork Orange comes to mind. Even recognizing First Amendment rights, the question comes to mind why are the violent games the most prevalent?

Profit motive is the obvious answer, but that evades the societal moral responsibility of those offering mass entertainment. How much of their "near occasion of sin" profits are used to fund the development and distribution of games that still challenge and excite while presenting more worthwhile goals than violent dismemberment?

Industry leaders who hide behind paid-for studies that "prove" no direct connection (a straw man argument) are craven and cowardly. Especially, for those who advocate that primitive man has a place within civilized society. Madness, pure madness.

#16 The violent games are the most prominent because that is the kind more people buy.
The game industry is a tough market. You can´t create fad sales through marketing like you can other products, nor can you build a brand loyalty that guarantees that people will buy your game.
Millions of people are voting for this with their wallets.

A conservative lawmaker late Saturday challenged media reports that the Department of Justice gave members of Congress documents related to the probe of Russian eletion meddling. Late Saturday, the Associated Press reported the Justice Department this week turned over some of the documents related to the Russia investigation. But Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina Republican, called the report was “not accurate” and said the department provided merely a fraction of what lawmakers subpoenaed. “New reports of DOJ/FBI compliance with document requests are NOT accurate. While they have turned over additional documents, the new documents represent a small percentage of what

Newbusters reports that The New York Times has teamed up with the Japanese brand, Sacai, to create a t-shirt featuring the paper´s slogan dedicated to the "truth" that is being sold for $300.00. (via Tim Graham): The front of the $300 shirt, available for purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue, reads, "Truth. It´s more important now than ever." The back of the shirt reprints more text from an early 2017 TV ad for the Times: The truth is hard. The truth is hidden. The truth must be pursued. The truth is hard to hear. The truth is rarely simple. The truth is rarely obvious. The truth doesn't take sides. The truth is not red or blue. The truth is necessary.

The New York Times posted a video of seven ‘unaccompanied migrant children’ arriving at New York’s La Guardia Airport from Texas Wednesday evening–only the ‘children’ appear to be grown men. Are these little boys holding shaving kits? Hundreds of ‘separated children’ have quietly been sent to New York, reports the New York Times. Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border.

The advantage of having to write a column at the end of the week is that usually within seven days, the latest leftist meme has been thoroughly debunked. And so it is this week with such bunkum as claims that crying toddlers and children at the border are being ripped from the arms of loving parents and held in concentration camp-style settings. My online friend Randy Bock has dubbed this propaganda ploy "Kidtrina," and it certainly bears a great deal of similarity to the overwrought coverage of the Hurricane Katrina aftermath in New Orleans. And for the same reason: to deflect blame from Democrat politicians and to demonize

Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family on Friday night because the manager did not want to serve her following the backlash over Trump´s child migrant separation policy, it has been claimed. Jaike Foley-Schultz, a server at the Red Hen in Lexington, said the White House Press Secretary lasted just two minutes in the restaurant until his boss asked her to leave. ´I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members,´ he posted on Facebook.

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs. Truong considers recent forays to Mexican food dining establishments by administration policy adviser Stephen Miller and
