The games industry is being pushed by Germany and Electronic Arts in a direction that, if successful, would mean the mass de-platforming of right-wingers and free speech in gaming. The Anti-Defamation League and the big names in Silicon Valley have already signed on to similar projects in the US. All of which, if successful, will mean the inevitable control of gaining by the woke.
It starts with Germany. Martin Lorber, Electronic Arts Public Relations Director for German-speaking countries, announced in April a dual project between itself, the German government, and two new organizations: Good Gaming – Well Played Democracy and Keinen Pixel den Faschisten (No Pixels for Fascists). Their stated goal is to make sure gamers do not become radicalized into neo-Nazis. However, even the smallest bit of digging reveals that this project is, in truth, nothing more than a full-throated attempt to force the games industry and social media platforms to bow down before social justice.
The two organizations joining this collaboration contain some of the most radical activists for social justice inside Germany. The organization behind Good Gaming are the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, a left-wing activist group headed by former frequent Stasi informant Anette Kahane. Kahane’s foundation got in trouble last year when a brochure sent to German schools suggested you could recognize a girl’s family as far-right if a girl wears dresses and does chores.
Good Gaming writes its job is to analyze “how right-wing alternative actors are increasingly trying to foment a misanthropic atmosphere on gaming platforms.” They have a problem with right-wingers enjoying space on Steam, for example. Social media posts show their plan is a propaganda war, that they want to educate young people to recognize “hate” online and push back against right-wing ideas.
