What’s it like drinking tea while riding on a high horse? It must be especially difficult if you’re also retarded, but don’t take my word for it! Ask British defence secretary Liam Fox, who is calling for a ban on the popular war game Medal of Honor, errr Medal of HonoUr, because its multiplayer mode makes one team the Taliban [BBC video interview].
[British defence secretary] Fox is of course pissed that the game’s multiplayer mode allows one side to fight as Taliban insurgents against ‘Mericans – sorry, coalition forces. Many in this noncontroversy have gone out of their way to take offense (sigh,offence) but Fox gets special commendation. He’s assuming that because one of the multiplayer maps is set within Helmland province, where U.K. forces are based, this explicitly means the game’s killing British troops.
“I am disgusted and angry. It’s hard to believe any citizen of our country would wish to buy such a thoroughly un-British game,” the man who is not the network said. “I would urge retailers to show their support for our armed forces and ban this tasteless product.”
JEBUS, man way to make us look like a bunch of ninnies. That kinda shit may fly in England, but over here that’s how you wind up fishing your tea out of Boston Harbor, bro. And has anybody heard of the 1st Amendment over there? To be fair, I can’t single out England, it’s no better over here. Everywhere you turn there’s someone calling for a ban on something. Like maybe we should just legislate our way to harmony? Ban everything that isn’t cotton candy and double rainbows? Isht don’t sink so. It’s like no one ever read those books that they made everyone read. Are they not making them read the same ones these days? Maybe Fahrenheit 451 is banned now, in which case I’m all out of answers. My head is just spinning like a top. Bottom line: we’re pussifying ourselves enough over here in the States, we don’t need your help on this one.
Oh, and by the way. There aren’t even any British forces in the damn game, so stay the hell out of my free market.
