Critics said the raised fist evoked Black Lives Matter and cast the organization as villains

I think the raised fist is a Marxist symbol. Which the official organization called BLM seems to be involved with.

So these people saying that it cast BLM as villains were actual supporters or just 4chan trolls?

Ubisoft made Farcry 5 that paints right wing ideologies as terrorism/evil but doesn’t want to portray a left wing ideology in a negative light because the rioters are what??? Noble?

For the sake of fairness, living in cancel culture, and hypocrisy... it’s all fiction people.

Also, Farcry 6 stars a non-Hispanic actor playing a stereotype of Latin crime lord... so...

Pick and choose your wokeness, Ubi.

You have to ask yourself why they single out one side and not the other. Is it because one side has a history of looting stores and burning cars and one side doesn’t? Is it just Ubi looking to go along with the latest trend even though it isn’t the majority idea (squeaky wheel gets the grease)

And the "one side that doesn't", is driving vehicles into people, macing and paintballing them from their vehicles and police let them go (while stopping the vehicles of volunteers with food and supplies like a church vehicle a few days ago - https://wkow.com/2020/08/28... )... Hell, 2 people get shot to death and a 3rd is sent to the hospital, and the cops just let the perp walk right by, while the police chief says he hasn't seen anything...

Right wing extremists have killed over 331 since '94... https://www.businessinsider... It's not a trend for them, it's the norm.

One side doesn't????

Don't forget history

rdgneoz3, sounds like you are ok with BLM/Antifa shooting someone in a MAGA hat in cold blood because it is MAGA hunting season, right? You condone the shooting in Portland by your Antifa buddies?

Right wing ideology is basically Let's hate anyone that isn't white so yeah.

Interesting. What right wing ideology was painted as terrorism/evil in Farcry 5?

I know some only tune in once people riot and then have the audacity to wonder why people riot (something even the pacifist MLK understood 6 decades ago), but people need to learn their history when it comes to that symbol and the narrative Ubisoft was perpetuating. The symbol has been around for decades. Attempts to invalidate the authenticity of Black grievances and undermine the agency of Black people by suggesting Black people are under the sway of some nefarious cabal are even older and a tactic that has been used by both liberals and conservatives in the past and recently.

***Ubisoft made Farcry 5 that paints right wing ideologies as terrorism/evil but doesn’t want to portray a left wing ideology in a negative light because the rioters are what??? Noble?***

The fact that you would see the villain in FC5 as a right wing ideologist should be the issue here,

Christopher385d ago

Just FYI, here's your right wing ideologist:

"ruthless megalomaniac who is the founder and the leader of the Hope County-based extremist religious terrorist cult organization"

"Eden's Gate has used both coercion and violence to bring the existing residents of Hope County into its cult"

"Seed truly believes that he was chosen by God and that he was told of the coming end of the world. His goal is to protect his followers, or "children" from the coming end and lead them to "Eden's gate.""

"Joseph is shown to be a psychopath, having no problem killing, torturing and looting to advance his project."

Did anyone arguing this actually play the game?

@NecrumOddBoy: And games media doesn't ever mislead people with clickbait opinion pieces that aren't accurate? Doesn't change that the guy is not an example of the right wing ideologies. If you take your info from blogs, then that's on you. If you played the game, then it would be clear that this is a cult in the sense of many others that have nothing to do with the conservative or evangelical groups. That's like saying Santa Muerte is the same as the Roman Catholic Church.

Lol you don't need to "paint" right wing ideology as terrorism. That shit painted itself.
Trying to compare those fuckers with BLM is like apples and oranges. 99% of the BLM movement is a reaction to centuries of racism. 1% is a bunch of fools causing trouble.
99% of far right history is racism that caused all the problems in the first place.
Nice try twisting reality, though...

They're not ready for this conversation.
