In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Dorka Dorka Muhammad Jihad

Today has been a pretty great day for watching people make complete jackasses out of themselves. My inbox was chock full of meaty video goodness to help me through my morning coffee.

First off, looks like last night Jon Stewart ripped congress a new one over their total ignorance of video games and gamers. We all knew how out of touch politicians are, but nobody can make you look ridiculous like Jon and his Daily Show worker elves. An illegal rebroadcast of copyrighted entertainment awaits you below.



Next, it looks like ABC's Nightline picked up on GamePolitics' scoop last month on some Pentagon jerks fearmongering about a Battlefield 2 fan-made video labeled as a terrorist recruiting tool. This, despite the fact that it contained dialog ripped from Team America: World Police. So watch the video or I'll put a jihad on you! Durka durka Muhammad jihad.



Hell, these highly paid (to the tune of $7 million) "experts" don't even know the difference between a video and a mod. This nonexistent mod, they expertly claimed, let you play as Arabs shooting coalition forces. Except anyone who had done the slightest bit of research, say, for example, a paid expert, would have noticed that the Middle Eastern Coalition (M.E.C.) is in fact one of the armies in Battlefield 2 right out of the box. And their terrorist threat is just a fan video made by a British Dutch (thanks alert revolutionary!) guy who likes to play as the M.E.C. a lot.

Of course, if they don't find anything to alarm people with, maybe their budget gets cut next year. Man, if they only knew what it was that people were really modding, they'd be terrified out of their goddamn minds.
