Propaganda is hard; particularly when you’re a smug semi-Marxist douchebag who’s trapped in a social media echo chamber and who has no day-to-day contact with average working people.
Also it seems that no-one at Ubisoft has learnt anything from GamerGate as the recent poster for Farcry 5 shows; one of the truly great double downs in recent memory.
The message here is clear: If you want to fight against men like that continue to buy an overpriced AAA title that won’t be properly patched until six months after release.
But on the other hand if you would rather fight alongside men like that…
Repent for your sins and get your kilted Heathen arse over to Men of The West
Seriously do people not understand why For Honor was such a hit? The culture as a whole is beginning to shift rightward and you see this very clearly in the lands of videogames; the last refuge of the young male outcast. What do the newest batch of annoying teen gamers want? Hmmm it turns out that they want to retake Constantinople, while singing along to the latest Sabaton song.
Brave Faithful Knights. Strong Metal as Fuck Vikings. Cool Edgy Samurai. Toxic Masculinity Everywhere! For Honor was the perfect storm to welcome a new generation of boys, searching for themselves and on the verge of becoming men. Of course this was no doubt merely a chance as no major gaming publisher would make such divinely-timed a game on purpose but God does tend to work in mysterious ways.
My main point however is the Modern Left simply does not understand the Right (and the Alt-Right in particular) they have no idea what drives us so occasionally their attempt to demoralise or mock us backfire hilariously and wind up motivating us, instead.
The ‘Basket of Deplorables’ remark being the most famous of these examples.
After all how many journalists, marketing execs and Hollywood power couples will actually talk to anyone from “flyover country?” The Right’s main advantage in the Culture War is that the Left is fighting completely blind. They simply have to idea what motivates their enemies to dare to disagree with THE MOST HOLY NARRATIVE!!!
Another example; I believe this was from a LA newspaper and was intended to mock Trump supporters. Unfortunately for Cuckbro we consider masculinity a virtue not a vice.
A third example is this.
This ad was supposed to shock the viewer with OMG! NAZIS! but instead make them hungry for 1950’s America. The ad was quickly pulled once the comrades recognized their failure.
