LaRouche Blames Microsoft For NIU Tragedy

"International Fascism: Microsoft Will Kill More Youth than Hitler." That is the title of a news posting over at the LaRouche Political Action Committee website, home of the supporters of American political nutcase Lyndon LaRouche. Taking their lead from the New York Post's sensationalist article "COLLEGE KILLER CRAZY FOR VIOLENT VID GAME", the LaRouche Camp is apparently blaming "Microsoft's Counterstrike killer video-game" for the shooting. Never mind that Microsoft doesn't make Counter-Strike - that's probably all part of the conspiracy as well.

"The intended effect, to foster an environment of mass suicide terrorism in the U.S.A., is a by-product of the 'Revolution in Military Affairs' policy, organized by Felix Rohatyn and George P. Shultz; the same individuals, who not only helped to install the fascist Pinochet into the Chilean government, but are the prime backers of a fascist Bloomberg Presidency." (Counterstrike, Counter-Strike: Source, Industry, PC)

How lame. When would these people research, before blaming video for violence in the world. There is a f**king war going on out there, and you think that have not impact on people.

this crap sickens me....
To know there are idiots out in the world that are so completely blind to reality....its just hard to digest.

I'm all for freedom of speech, but I still wish we could legally beat people who say crap like this.

this is bs
blame M$ is BS
IntelligentAj  +   2749d ago
Oh get the f*** out of here. Do these people actually think or do some research before they make wild baseless claims like this.
Kaz Hirai  +   2749d ago
And you all wonder why I call them "Nazisoft."
Bladestar  +   2749d ago
hehe... funny... NOT... I'm not concern about your comments.. we already know "if it looks like $h!t and smell like $h!t then is $h!t"... I wouldn't expect anything more comming from you... but I'm concern about your agrees. Says a lot about this site and who is dominated by (Sony Fanboys).

Funny thing you call Microsoft "Nazisoft"... while they are an american company... when Sony (japan) and Germany (a place where the PS3 is doing very well in comparison to the xbox 360) were the foundation of the Nazi empire... I just find that... sort of contradicting...
Kaz Hirai  +   2749d ago
Thank you for taking the time to address King Kaz
Now then, PIG, as for my response:

Stop whining and buy a PS3.

InYourMom  +   2749d ago
You need to be banned from this site. Calling users PIGS and throwing around all this Nazi talk is offensive.

This site has some serious double-standards.
BrianC6234  +   2749d ago
I see Nazisoft is busy today picking a fight with poor Yahoo. What bullies. Maybe the board at Yahoo should try to buy Microsoft. Now that would be funny. You think you can buy us? Think again. We just bought you. Hahaha.

Tough day for Microsoft... First RRoD at GDC, now they're worse than Hitler!! Sometimes you can't catch a break!! :)

I don't believe for a second that Counter Strike players are training on this game to murder people... Most of the players I've encountered couldn't hit the side of a barn!!
LastDance  +   2749d ago
well if a male is that impressionable that a game can "influence" him to kill people because of video games then he should be at home playing video games. he should be in a mental hospital right?
Fishy Fingers  +   2749d ago
LOL... this is a joke.

For one like they state they have zero to do with Counter Strike.

Id expect a large law suit to be filed pretty dam soon and rightly so.
Maddens Raiders  +   2749d ago
Complete bollocks -
these people need to be quarantined. Why not blame a ((grown man)) who did or didn't take his Prozac and decided to commit *murder*? Is that worth blame?

wow, thats all i got to say. I am very ashamed of the country I live in, comm'n do your freaking reserch before you judge.
Maddens Raiders  +   2749d ago
Well I'm not ashamed -
of the country I live in, but I am concerned about some of the people I share it with.
IntelligentAj  +   2749d ago
What never ceases to amaze me is that Movies and TV aren't looked upon in the same light as video games. I see plenty of violence in movies and on tv so shouldn't that have the same effect as video games?(which most evidence has supported is none)
BrianC6234  +   2749d ago
Wow, this is dumb. Microsoft didn't make Counterstrike. He should at least get his facts right before blaming someone. He's as bad as Jackie Thompson. I bet those idiots are bed buddies.

Wow, someone clicked on disagree for my post? Are you Jack Thompson or Lyndon Larouche? All I said was Microsoft didn't make Counterstrike so how can he blame them. I'm sure some stupid Xbot clicked disagree though. Probably the same idiot who keeps doing it to my posts. Next time maybe you should read what I wrote. I was on Microsoft's side on this one idiot.

I agreed with you as cs was my favorite game for a long time but
It was probaly someone on the sony side who disagreed cause you didnt think microsoft deserved the slander. If you dont agree with the bad things said about microsoft, no matter how crazy they are, you will get disagrees.
HCS  +   2749d ago
article failed
as as soon as they blamed microsoft for counterstrike.

they didn't make it
Enigma_2099  +   2749d ago
say what you will about Microsoft...
... you KNOW this ain't right...
Soren the Cat  +   2749d ago
The LaRouche movement need not be taken seriously. I would consider them creative, not critical, thinkers, whose ideas rarely stand up to reality.
Bladestar  +   2749d ago
I also blame Intel and AMD for the killing! they probably made the CPUs which run the game! if AMD and intel wouldn't exist then the guy wouldn't be playing the game! I also blame the electric company! if no electricity would be delivered to this murderers then they wouldn't be able to play these games!

Why blame other things that probably have more impact on someone head that could trigger a person to commit such crimes.. like phycological problems without treatment, inability of parents to raise their kids properly or notifying the authority of a public threat or putting them in a mental institution..

Video games do not cause schizophrenia or stress disorder... child abuse, war, economy, etc do....

It's a cheap and dirty way to blame big fundamental problems without the need of doing anything... for example, instead of providing affordable health care for those who have mental problems to get help... blame it on video games; that way nothing gets done.

Murders have existed for ever and people didn't have video games back then... Hitler didn't play COD4 and he was very good a shooting people.

I'm all for having laws to enforce that content does not fall in the wrong hands... Fine the parents! Consoles now in days allows parents to control the games kids play... cable tv does the same...

I have a 1 year old little girl... and I don't let her watch Porno... so, why should I let her play Gears of war? As matter of fact if there is movie or game I don't think is appropriate I wouldn't watch or play it in front of her...

Violence and other problems are more fundamental than video games...

f@# demago
as much as I dislike m$, this makes me wanna poo on larouche's face.
some people vote for this kinda pigs??
Gorgon  +   2749d ago
Well, people voted for a worse pig in the form of Bush.
zapass  +   2749d ago
if( pigA > pigB ) {
you think throwing 'fascist', 'hitler' and that kinda hateful non-sense at m$ is excusable because the larouche dudes are against bush? 8 years of the stinkiest far right wing poo do not legitimate far left wing poo to me. We need some massive changes and it is good to see people getting involved in politics (especially gamers) but we can do better than that! My demago-dar beeps on the left too, this dude is as bad as jack thomson.
Gorgon  +   2748d ago
Oh, I agree with you. I was saying that voting for a pig doesn't surprise me since they already voted for a lot of them in the past and will STILL vote in the future.
fenderputty  +   2749d ago
this jackass has less influence then Jack Thomson.
DanteLinkX  +   2749d ago
Only thing M$ is to blame is....

But seriously, when will these Jack Thompsons stop their frigg1ng BS? It seems gaming is the cause of everything nowadays, but its just because its a really big industry that is growing constantly.

I don't see how gaming and movies/tvs are different in the sense of "making kids violent". Second though, sometimes I want to sneak in some places a la Solid Snake and twist some necks, specially M$ testing office and the office of Jack Thompson. Read this comment while you can, I am editing it really soon, so I don't go to jail for saying such a thing LOL, next N4G news "N4Ger gamer goes to jail for posting comment about twisting JT neck, JT blames MGS saga and Sony for it- 1080"
