Who’s Behind Video Game Witch Hunts?

Self-appointed morality mavens are mounting a concerted, state-by-state campaign targeting politically incorrect video games.

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, a Democrat, is expected to sign a bill this month that will make his state the only one in the republic to ban the sale of violent video games to minors.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, that weather vane of modern Democratic Party politics, complained about video games in March: “Probably one of the biggest complaints I’ve heard is about some of the video games, particularly ‘Grand Theft Auto,’ which has so many demeaning messages about women and so encourages violent imagination and activities and it scares parents.”

Clinton may be a relatively new senator, but she has mastered an important Washington lesson: You get what you pay for. Social science researchers receiving fat paychecks from politicos with agendas have a strong incentive to shape their results accordingly.

Yes, the ones that are going to SAVE us, the ones that want to take away your guns, scanner radios, SUVs, freedom to walk amongst the tidepools – the Dems.
