Video Game Goes Full Commie Defense By Eliminating Tiananmen Square Footage

Published

on

According to a report from MCRTV, video game company Activision edited its latest game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to appease the Chinese Communist Party.

In a low-profile manner, Activision replaced the original game trailer with a considerably shorter version. Specifically, it removed footage from the infamous Tiananmen Square massacre that the Chinese government carried out in 1989. According to a report from the BBC, the crackdown left an estimated 10,000 people dead.

Indeed, there is a strong financial incentive for video game companies, and companies in general, to remain PC in order to cater and tap into the gigantic Chinese market.

“Activision gave no indication as to why the first trailer was removed, or even that it had happened, but according to South China Morning Post, it’s because the original video contained a brief clip of footage from the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, an event that’s heavily censored in China,” according to a PC Gamer report.

Similar antics were present last year when the NBA kowtowed before the Chinese Communist Party and tried to shutdown anyone who complained about the CCP’s crackdown on Hong Kong protestors.

Since falling under Communist control in 1949, China has gone through a tumultuous economic development process. Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution teared the country apart both economically and socially speaking.

It wasn’t until reformers like Deng Xiaoping came in and introduced market reforms. Since then, China has economically boomed and emerged as one of the world’s emerging powers. Although millions of Chinese were able to get out of poverty, the country remains politically repressive. Similarly, further economic integration has only enriched its elite, who envision a Chinese state that plans to attain hegemonic status at the expense of other states.

American companies should start behaving according to American principles as opposed to chasing dollar signs in the short-term. There are times when American entities must call a spade a spade and denounce the authoritarian nature of the countries they do business with.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
