Walsh is wrong about just about everything. He is a condescending holier than thou authoritarian of some sort. I would have been nice to see an article like this when he was running anti videogame articles or his nonsense on Love and how one ought view it.
But when it comes to Game of Thrones, he’s wrong on the Christian angle, but he is sooo sooo soo soooo right on the content and the issue with it. That bit was spot on and, if you read my ramblings here you’ll see that I bash the guy most of the time, but like Bill Maher, sometimes he gets it. There is something wrong with a narrative mechanism of torture and rape, who thinks THATS a good idea? . I mean, first 20min of the first episode, literally, rape of one of the main characters. And they play it off as some sort of softcore porn, so its extra creepy. They are like “oooo loook at this, this is HOT” and it’s like….no…no HBO, he’s raping her, this is not cool….
If you thought that the scene between Dany and Drogo was played as softcore porn, you're watching some pretty odd porn. That was pretty clearly NOT intended to be arousing; it wa salmost as uncomfortable as the scene with Sansa last week (also, it's unclear that either of those situations constitute rape by the legal standard of the societies in which the scenes take place).
From a character standpoint, what happens was important to show her evolution - in the first few episodes she is treated as scenery/a trade good; this contrasts well with how she grows into a (mediocre) ruler and queen. Likewise, her relationship with her husband blooms over several episodes. In the beginning, he sees her simply as a trophy or property; she is truly a respected partner and wife by the second-to-last episode of season one.

Game of Thrones sucks. Matt Walsh is way wrong on videogames, but he’s right on this. I can’t watch anything with rape and torture. Seeing pretty girls get hurt, even in fiction, deeeeply disturbs me. Can’t do it, won’t support it….and when it seems to be a theme in a show…..yeah….rubs me the wrong way.
How did you know this was a woman? Because hanging out in the basement on your X-Box has turned you in to a mental Titan!

Stopped watching in 2010 sometimes. Megyn Kelly’s anti-videogame propaganda ALMOST put me over the edge, but after seeing Beck and then watching everything else on FNC, I saw what a farce it had become and got out.
Think good thoughts @XGP15A226, life is too short to see the bad in everything.
Taylor Swift, most likely, made this little angel happier than she has ever been in her life.
She probably spends every day confined inside her home or a hospital room, simply waiting, knowing she will die soon.
That precious little girl will be gone from this earth before you come out of your mom's basement for air enroute to the corner store for another couple cases of Coca Cola and a a half dozen bags of Cheese Puffs.
Forget about your personal tastes in Taylor Swift’s music. At least wish her well.

Monk, I think you have been reading too much Matt Walsh (though, that last article he did was AMAZING). If the guy was doing all that, the employee did the right thing.
Are we Libertarians or not? Call the Cops? No.
Take care of it yourself.

This is really really scary stuff.
Where the hell is everyone? This is SO VERY DANGEROUS.
this is a result of the freaks in Oregon voting for legislators that pass these discriminatory laws to protect their favored constituents. this isn't equal justice under the law. they pass these laws and the courts refuse to do their job to apply the constitution to these laws.
If a Democrat is elected in 2016, you can expect MORE of these judges.

It’s a shame even Beck can’t just stand immediately against this sort of thing. I don’t need to think about it, I don’t need to debate the sides. Truth and Lies is what we have and this nonsense right here is part of the Agenda.
I will break the Commandment.
I will just flip through this nonsense and call it for what it is.

Take him out back, shoot him in the head, and burn the body.
Just make sure that the bullets are dipped in pig's blood AND he is wearing a pig skin jacket. That ought to do it.
@XGP, Why do you want to let him off with a slap on the wrist like that?
NO, BAD, very bad conservative. Where the hell is your sense of capitalism. Many people were injured required long stays in hospital because of this guy.
Raffle tickets to be one of the 3 or whatever that pushes the button. Then have something like a stretch goal where if it gets to a certain amount we tie him to a cactus and let the retired seals practice on him from 4 miles away.
XGP: The "Joker" was convicted on all the charges and "could face" the death penalty but in the penalty phase, he's got the same attorney that beats the "Death Sentence", time and again. She defended the Unabomber who also killed people with bombs. That being granted, I really don't see life forever in a Super Max much of a bargain, especially for someone as young as this killer. If I had to place a bet, I expect he will get Life.
Make it a photo-op with Obama and then we're talking.
Let the injured folks blow him up!
Agree with taking him out back and shooting him, but hey, animals have to eat too! Just drop the body off at the nearest pig farm!
I guess this Waste of Skin is going to be Time Magazine's Man of the Year.
Get a Rope.
I'm convinced this was a staged event. Anyone who has really looked into exactly what happened at the time of this drill knows what we're up against.
"The Department of Homeland Security has gone public with an admission that an exercise was planned months before the Boston Marathon bombings that involved backpacks being used to detonate explosives by rogue terrorists."
9/11 - coincided with pre-planned drill
Boston bombing - coincided with pre-planned drill
Sandy Hook - coincided with pre-planned drill
...and the list goes on.
Bring on the tongue lashings, ye supposed seekers of truth.
Too bad he'll be almost old enough to collect social security before they hook him up to the "tubes of death".
Wow, just what I was going to say, thanks.
I'm all for fixing his first prison meal in...an Electric Pressure Cooker!!...plugged in to the back of his Electric chair. Mmmm, those black-powder fireworks makes some savory but spicy explosive flavors come out in the cookin'.
You never deserved to come to this country, neither you nor your dead brother, nor any of your family. Not one. You all wasted the best thing that was ever given to you besides your life, and you've wasted that too now, and because you took the lives of so many innocents, you should lose that remaining life too.

I love those stupid Riddick movies. Pitch Black is prolly the best *puts on Proggie Film Hack Glasses* Technically. The two games are 10/10.
never watched F&F because I don’t care about fast car culture.
Agree on the games, they were -really- good. I had mixed feelings on the most recent Riddick, notably that I hated the (non)ending. The one they cut out but put in the Directors Cut is 10000x better, it should have been the theatrical one.

Sad. You’re stuck with it if removing it will just disfigure you worse : /
