LaRouche Followers Continue Video Game Assault at Virginia Tech Hearings

Far-out political figure Lyndon LaRouche is apparently intent upon linking violent video games to the Virginia Tech massacre.

Last month GamePolitics reported on Virginia Tech Review Panel testimony given by Don Phau, a member of LaRouche's political action committee (see: Violent Games Should be Banned Like Heroin). Phau attended the panel's public meeting in Richmond, the first of several planned around the state.

Larouche Youth Movement leader Paul Mourino at the second Review Panel meeting, held in Blacksburg, where Virginia Tech is located had this to say,

Cho, the Virginia Tech shooter, is no exception, despite the near total media blackout of his involvement with violent video games, including "Counter-Strike."

The whole f**king lot of them need to be dealt with. I hope they don't interpret that as a violent threat. I surely have been playing too many 'hyperviolent' videogames lately. I feel compelled to murder a dozen kittens with a blowtorch.
