Just when you thought the election in France couldn’t get any more ridiculous (see CORRUPTION: EU Charges Marine Le Pen. For Posting Photos of ISIS Victims…), something like this rears its sunken head. A new video game has debuted featuring a socialist, French presidential candidate violently beating the snot out of rich people. He shakes them down, collects their euros, then moves on to terrorize more “bad guys.” Their crime? Being rich. Such is the heart of socialism…
To support his presidential campaign, fans of a French politician have released a video game where players can attack greedy businessmen and wealthy politicians and steal their money.
“The hero of the game, it’s me,” Melenchon says. “I and the people playing my character fighting the oligarchs. It’s a battle. We catch them, shake them and it drops euros, and euros can be put in a common pot.”
[The] game, called “Fiscal Kombat,” was created by a volunteer posse of his admirers, it was met with approval by the official campaign. Melenchon even filmed himself playing it, posting a video on YouTube.
This is simply the latest effort on behalf of crusty, old, card-carrying leftists desperately trying to make themselves appeal to the youth. In case you haven’t noticed, they’re doing everything they can to make socialism hip and trendy.
Oddly enough, this game manages to speak volumes about the goal of socialism. Its objective is exactly as depicted – forcibly stealing money from the rich to toss into a collective pot. Which is wrong for obvious reasons: stealing from people for one’s own selfish, jobless gain is wrong. Even if it makes you feel like a better person. We’re talking basics here. Alas, they’re basic lessons the left seems to have skipped. The worst part? They use tools such as this to paint government-mandated theft as the morally just thing to do. You know, because caring and whatnot.
I can think of a few unemployed welfare hobbits who’d be interested in playing such a game…
