This one should cause no end of conservative whining. An outfit called Stavingeyes Advergaming has come up with a “battle the zombies” game where the Zombies (gasp!) are Faux News commentators and Tea Baggers.
The Game, “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” is free, and I am sure will be on the “guilty pleasures” list of many progressives and moderates who have had it up to their eyes with the ever squalling right wing. I am sure this will get 24 x 7 coverage on Faux as conservatives complain that the game is encouraging violence against their ilk. The hole in that argument is that the last dozen or so times in the last 25 years any nutcase has actually tried to harm an elected official, news commentator, or public figure (remember the Anthrax Terrorist Attacks and Gabby Giffords) the targets have been real live “Liberals”, and the attackers have been folks steeped in the violent right wing mythology promoted by Faux and their right wingdizzie bretheren.
Seems Progressives, unlike their right wing counterparts – know the difference between political fantasy, and real life.
If tea party opponents are really aiming for political civility, the latest online video game from Brooklyn-based StarvingEyes Advergaming won’t do much to further their cause.
Although it isn’t exactly James Hoffa saying “Let’s take these son of a bitches out,” a new video game called “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” has surfaced on the Internet.
The objective of the game is to destroy zombies made in the likenesses of conservative figures including Bill O’Reilly, Brit Hume, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, the Koch brothers and Glenn Beck.
The game also offers players an opportunity to shoot up the headquarters of Fox News, and of the right-wing “Americans for Prosperity” organization.
Americans for Prosperity spokeswoman Jennifer Ridgely declined to comment on the game and StarvingEyes Advergaming did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.
