This year saw the release of Bioshock Infinite. A game about choice and about racism and indeed a game that was well loved and well appreciated.
But it is set in a floating city of racists. Where White Racists used a black, Irish and Native American population to run their floating utopia. The sense of small town America in the sky breaking apart when you first have to stone (well throw baseballs at) people guilty of the crime of “miscegenation”. And you slowly delve into a world powered by racism and oppression.
A part of the Tea Party and the “Patriots” of the USA didn’t check their source.
The National Liberty Foundation (who don’t quite understand the meaning of the word Liberty) decided to post this up on their site.
This is art from the game. This is from parts of the game where you slowly realise you are walking around a racist sky city. Where the founders of the USA are depicted as saviours against the Native American, The Blacks, The Jews, The Chinese, The Mexicans and The Irish.
And the Tea Party hasn’t realised that the entire joke is that the villains of the Bioshock games have been of certain ethos. The City of Rapture was created by the Randian Libertarians. The Second Game while not as well liked dealt with the Communists. The City of Columbia was founded by people whose ethos is similar to the Tea Party.
This is why you check your sources of the art you wish to depict.
