Snippet -

Hines – speaking on behalf of Bethesda – defended the company’s dabbling into the current, highly-charged political climate canvassing America. He explains that Bethesda is both aware of America’s climate and that they’re making a statement with the game and its longstanding theme of killing Nazis, saying…

“We’re certainly aware of current events in America and how they relate to some of the themes in Wolfenstein II,” [… ] “Wolfenstein has been a decidedly anti-Nazi series since the first release more than 20 years ago. We aren’t going to shy away from what the game is about. We don’t feel it’s a reach for us to say Nazis are bad and un-American, and we’re not worried about being on the right side of history here.”

Bethesda and MachineGames have been slowly ramping up the talking points of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to make a decided statement about the current direction America is heading in.

Some of the gameplay videos and trailers have also included comments about how the developers feel about the topic of Nazism, multiculturalism, and “being on the right side of history”.

Some have argued that Bethesda and MachineGames are using Wolfenstein II as propaganda for Antifa. The YouTube comment sections for each of the videos are littered with people complaining about Communists being worse than Nazis, while others have argued that portraying the Nazis as an efficient, clean, organized society paints the multicultural “good guys” in a bad light as anarchists and societal destabilizers.

And the Deep State whispered to Trump “You can’t withstand the storm”, to which Trump replied
“I am the storm”
