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 ...

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.

If a small group of people can´t handle something, then nobody should have it.

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.

Yes, under President Trump, the most federal judges have been confirmed in the first year of a presidency—ever. Yes, we have Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, but more work needs to be done.

Mr. 18 percent is threatening to hold Trump judicial nominees hostage over the president’s actions on tariffs. The GOP has a one-seat majority on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Democrats and the mainstream media continued to destroy any remaining credibility they have left with their recent hysteria surrounding the debate on illegal immigration as they pushed lie after lie in their attempts to emotionally manipulate voters. Before jumping into the lies and false information that the media and Democrats have injected into the American public, it´s important to note the timeline of events that led up to the creation of this current news cycle. The current news cycle on the poor treatment of illegal immigrants began in late May when people like former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau tweeted out an

President Trump and the families of people killed by the actions of illegal immigrants on Friday stressed that they are permanently separated from their loved ones, unlike some illegal immigrant families who are currently facing temporary separation at the border. Laura Wilkerson, a woman whose 18-year-old son was tortured and killed by illegal immigrants, said she wasn´t "lucky enough to be separated" from her son Josh "for five days or 10 days." "We´re separated permanently," Wilkerson said at a White House event. She was one of 15 people invited by Trump to share stories on Friday about how they´ve been impacted

On Thursday, a political stunt was smacked down at the southern border of the U.S.. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and dozens of other left-wing mayors from across the nation were turned away from a detention center located along the southern border in Texas. According to ABC 7 News, the mayor and his Democratic counterparts "requested access to the detention center, which can hold up to 4,000, so they could inspect the conditions inside," seeking to push for the reunification of illegal immigrant children with their parents. In the captured video, the mayor is told by a border

The separation here is from the facts. Dems should join POTUS and fix our broken immigration system. #ChangetheLaws” (Tweet) For days, and without bothering to vet the photograph, the anti-Trump corporate media have deliberately tried to mislead the American people into believing President Trump’s separation policies were new (they

The White House on Thursday proposed the most comprehensive plan to reorganize the federal government in 100 years, including a merger of the departments of Education and Labor, and a proposal to add work requirements for welfare programs. “Businesses change all the time,” said White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. “Government doesn’t, and one of the things you get when you hire a businessman to become president is you bring this attitude from the private sector.” The sweeping reorganization plan stems from an order signed by Mr. Trump in March 2017 calling for a review of

The policies were Democrat policies, yet Democrats and Jeb Bush-style #NeverTrumps were decrying it as a product of President Trump´s heartlessness, separating parents from children entering illegally as families, in order to keep the children out of their parents´ jail. Yet they were President Obama´s and President Bush´s and President Clinton´s policies, dating to 1997. The press pounded the drumbeat nonstop for days that President Trump was

They’re known as “Dumbledore’s Army.” No, I’m not kidding. It all stems from the leadership battle between Office of Budget and Management Mick Mulvaney and Deputy Director Leandra English.

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
