If your idea of fun is trying to save America from the ills of President Obama and “pro-Obama forces,” then there’s a new computer game for you.
The multi-player online game “2011: Obama’s Coup Fails,” is set in a time where Obama is trying to toss out the Constitution, ban guns and merge the U.S. with Canada and Mexico into a “North American Union.” (See image right; click to view larger version.)
The game creators, which include 40-year-old Brooklyn resident Michael Russotto, tell Mother Jones magazine they’re not trying to capitalize on “anti-Obama paranoia,” but rather get “the most publicity.”
In this virtual world, the magazine notes that players can also add to their fun by making up news headlines about events like Michelle Malkin writing the Second Declaration of Independence or Hillary Clinton using children to shield herself from attacks.
Russotto told the magazine, “There’s a lot going on with Fox, the White House, and we wanted to capitalize on that.”
In the game’s premise, the GOP is about to regain control of both houses of Congress, but Obama decides he will not swear in the new members of Congress, he’d rather have a North American Union instead and ban firearms. And the revolutionaries(or online players) are fed up and attempting to regain control—even though a few counties are now in the hands of groups like the “Cong” aka former Democratic Congressional leaders and the Federal Reserve.
Fox News has been shut down, Glenn Beck has been found dead of a suspicious aspirin overdose and the contestants are challenged to join the patriots, capture Obama and defeat his troops and the ‘Cong,’ in this imaginary online world.
The creators’ website www.usofearth.com describes the virtual revolution as “an action packed, satire-filled war game that takes place in the not-so-distant future, ” i.e. just after November 2010 elections. The game creators, which Mother Jones reporter David Corn refers to as “Ron Paul-loving libertarians,” say they’re less-interested in partisan views than getting attention and they’re working up a new game that will appeal to the left called “Ambush Bush.”
However, promotional information on the website reads “It does seem our biggest enemies are not from outside our borders. ..Reality is far more scary and ominous than fiction. Obama is putting real Marxists into power all over America and you can listen to these people in their own words. Be Afraid America. Freedom hangs in the balance.”
A blog that appears on the site features updates on today’s news, including a Thursday post entitled “When is a Nazi comparison not Out of Bounds?” It explains “White House interim communications director Anita Dunn is desperately trying to avoid the fate of her historical doppelganger sister in arms, Leni Riefenstahl,” a Nazi propagandist.
Russotto says thousands of people have signed up to play the game already.
Mitch McConnell goes berserk – says granting Puerto Rico statehood, voting rights, representation is ‘full bore socialism’
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell went full-fledged off-the-wall red-baiting in a Fox News interview on Friday's "Ingraham Angle." The Republican from Kentucky told host Laura Ingraham that allowing Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. to become states – which would mean full representation in the U.S. House and Senate along with voting rights, would be "full bore socialism."
CNN’s April Ryan delivers brutal assessment of Trump’s 2020 kickoff: ‘He’s going in looking like a loser’
CNN's April Ryan on Monday delivered a brutal assessment of the state of President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign on the day before he's set to officially launch his reelection effort.
During a discussion about pollsters getting fired from the Trump campaign in the wake of brutal polling numbers getting leaked, Ryan said the president can't be happy to see so much news coverage of polls showing him losing badly to former Vice President Joe Biden.
"Democratic polls are saying that Joe Biden would beat him if the election were to happen today," she said. "They're also saying any Democrat would beat him if the election were today! This does not bode well for the Trump brand, it does not bode well for his presidency. He is going in looking like a loser."
Mitch McConnell delivers a pathetic response to Jon Stewart’s rebuke
When he testified before the House Judiciary Committee on June 11, comedian Jon Stewart was highly critical of the U.S. Senate for neglecting the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) — referencing a “certain someone” who kept using it as a “political football.” Stewart, during an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace that aired on Sunday, confirmed that the “certain someone” was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. And McConnell was highly dismissive of Stewart during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” the following Monday morning.
