Fuck Leland Yee in the neck with a rusty metal dildo.
ah more california
This guy was on John Stossels Texas vs California special last week. Yee was debating Suzanna Hupp on gun control, he is a very irrational person.
The people get the government they deserve.
Sounds like the fucker needs to be tossed off a very high building.
That supposed giant earthquake can't hit that state soon enough.
Ah those tolerant Dems. Gotta love em.
Actually, we have a lot of credibility because, unlike that stupid cunt, we're actually familiar with the content of the games. Plus, the overwhelming majority of us haven't committed any sort of violent crime, thus ruining the anti-video game crowd's argument.
What a fuckin idiot. Not a democrat-republican thing though...both sides have ardent critics of violent video games and make these stupid comments.
what a retard. I'll make a bet he has a concealed carry license.
The culture war and the dream of censorship cross left-right party lines. The PMRC senate hearings proved that decades ago.
This moron has no idea how much of a pain in his ass gamers can be as a voting block.
Including what are considered "independents", with that jew (no offense Neon) Lieberman.
Republican party is already in the shitter...but if the democrats keep pushing gun control and criticizing violent TV/video games...it's not going to help them.
Oh who am I kidding...the entitled drones will always blindly support and vote for the charismatic progressives.
Not this particular debate. Younger voters tend to vote liberal because liberals are perceived as being more in-touch than conservatives. Going after violent video games (or music) really shows how old and out-of-touch any politician truly is. Plus, a lot of people my age (23) happen to be gamers, so this effects them in a way they actually understand and give a shit about.
None of that will make a bit of difference. Free shit and fear mongering over retarded social issues will trump this.
That won't save this guy on election day, I assure you. Not with the voting block we're talking about, anyway. They might vote for someone that exactly the same on every over issue, but this guy's goodwill among them is irrevocably destroyed.
The voters are dumb. Obama shut down a lot of legal medical dispensaries in Colorado. Colorado votes to legalize it just like alcohol but those same voters vote for the guy who will continue to enforce federal drug laws in Colorado.
The difference, though, is that Obama is the first "black" President. He gets a lot of leeway. On the other hand, Leland Yee is an Asian from San Francisco, which is about as uncommon as a $1 bill in a vending machine. He doesn't have the novelty power that Obama has. He's also a senator, which doesn't carry quite the same level of "us versus them" nonsense with it. For all intents and purposes, he's just some dude that hates video games and thinks gamers are bloodthirsty savages. Yee also told gamers to just "be quiet". Being bluntly insulted conflicts with the young liberal's sense of entitlement and superiority. That will be a huge factor come election time as well.
No way video games are going to trump free shit. Never happen.
And everything you do is about yours and getting re elected.
but my lust for violence is very important to me!
The only bright spot is that Leland Yee is about to get term-limited out of office. One of the bright spots of the California Legislature. He's planning to run for AG, though.
Just out of curiosity, but have any of these politicians like Rerand here ever talked about banning paintball? Because I've played plenty of violent FPS videogames and "killing" your opponent doesn't really have much more of an effect on me than stomping a goomba (fuggedabahdit), however, popping a bunch of paint caps in people's asses really got me foaming at the mouf.
With some of these people, I'd be surprised if they had even heard of paintball.
What about free games
