Greatest threat to the First Amendment[edit]

Now that ol'Jack is down the other threats to Free Speech need to be disbarred or otherwise incapacitated.-- 20:40, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Duct tape[edit]

I have a roll of the Air Force issue stuff (called hundred-mile-an-hour tape) reserved for gift-wrapping this bozo and slapping enough stamps on him to ship him to the nearest penitentiary. Just pass the sentence! --Brian McNeil / talk 23:14, 26 September 2008 (UTC)



It has to be said...[edit]

Jack Thompson got what was coming to him. The idiot filed numerous frivolous lawsuits and tied up the legal system. Thompson is just an idiot trying to get attention. I bet he even plays games like grand theft auto. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:45, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Jack Thompson disbarred[edit]

Jack Thompson is an American hero. His fight against the traffic of obscene or violent materials and their makers has cost him his job, as the media lobby has convinced the courts of the "legality" of pornography and murder simulators in the possession of 12-year-olds is "art" and that it is protected by the 1st Amendment. Thompson said during his crusade against the hardcore pornography of 2 Live Crew that "any industry that sends the message that women can be sexually abused will be drawn and quartered". While leftist feminists focused on the use of terms like "freshman" as sexist, Thompson realized that what 2 Live Crew was doing was dangerous and harmful, especially in the hands of the children it was being marketed to. In addition to 2 Live Crew, Thompson has also sent the careers of many violent video game makers "back in the toilet were they started". Kudos to him. He is a martyr for common decency.

Allow me to rephrase that. While he said and did some questionable things, he was couragious in that he targeted violent and obscene entertainers without worrying what the gaming or music industries would think, and I find it hard to believe that this disbarrment is unrelated to that. If I weren't so lazy, I'd adjust that comment I posted above a bit. =angryamerican09—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 03:57, 27 September 2010

  • Uh, no. He's an arrogant buffoon trying to impose his Neanderthal world-view on an unreceptive and uncaring public. If he hates modern culture, modern technology, and the like, I suggest he buy a one-way ticket to the Afghan-Pakistan border and take up residence in the same cave as Osama Bin Laden. --Brian McNeil / talk 16:05, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

--I'm with angryamerican09, jack Thompson is a fool. his one personal view does not mean that he can just sue everyone ho thinks opposes his view. that is simply ignorance. this guy deserved every slap on his wrist he got and then some. he should have been charged with something along the lines of making a mockery of the judicial system, because i can remember a conversation i had on an ON LINE VIOLENT VIDEO GAME with a Canadian where his closing statement before he left was, "go sue someone like Jack Thompson you ignorant american". this born again Christian fool made a bad name not just for him but for everyone in america. and as for suing the 2-live crew, i think in jacks "honor" i'm gonna sue every country singer and band for making me feel depressed. and every hardcore song for making me wanna kill jack Thompson and every rap band for making bad tv shows about how they were made. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:59, 5 March 2010 (UTC)


I've been trying to find out if this raving lunatic was bared and he was! I'm so happy. he was abusing his privilege as a lawyer and truly is a lunatic. suing everyone he sees for the most stupid reasons imaginable. and now he is nobody. he never belonged in a court room all he did was target people he didn't like. Who does that? Jack your nobody and you mean nothing i hope you read this you jerk. and i hope you find a hobby like under water breathing.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:50, 5 March 2010 (UTC)


Jack Thompson is an example of what's wrong with this puritanical society...I own some of the Video games he was trying to get rid of....I enjoy them very much...does that make me want to do half the crap he says they purportedly cause??? NO NO NO!!!!! I'm glad to see REAL JUSTICE was done by the disbarment!
