EA's Game Gestapo

If someone had written this in a novel, you would have dismissed it as being heavy-handed and too over-the-top to be even remotely credible. EA is now using genuine Stasi agents to police gamers:
Electronic Arts' Berlin office just entered into a troubling partnership, one that has German gamers reeling. The EA office in Berlin recently announced it was partnering with the Amadeu Antonio Foundation and its program “Keine Pixel für Faschisten” [No Pixels for Fascists]. The Orwellian program seeks to monitor political beliefs in the video game industry and among players for “racism, sexism, and anti-semitism.”

The Foundation is headed by Anette Kahane, a former agent of the East German Ministry of Security, also known as the Stasi -- the repressive secret police that monitored and brutally suppressed dissent in East Germany after the Second World War. At its height, the Stasi had over 102,000 officers and nearly a quarter of a million of its own citizens spying on family members, neighbours and colleagues for wrongthink.

In a German news profile from 2019, Kahane’s activity in the Stasi was revealed through leaked documents. She was considered an excellent asset, enthusiastic in the performance of her work, and submitted intimate information to the Government on the lives of her friends, family, journalists, and even Chilean immigrants fleeing the fascist Pinochet regime. She also wrote extensive reports detailing people's private lives, from weddings to teenager’s birthday parties.
In fairness, I suppose it can be hard to come by the necessary five-years experience thought policing required for the average Trust & Safety Council job these days.

It's astonishing how many people across the political spectrum genuinely prefer secret police and thought crime to the possibility that someone, somewhere, might call them racist or anti-semitic.

Blogger Pedro Rocha May 13, 2020 4:15 PM  

"In 2018, there was public outcry when Kahane and her foundation published an information booklet for school teachers and early-age educators aimed at identifying “Nazi parents.” The booklet suggested blonde girls wearing braids and boys being athletic were signs that children should be monitored for potential removal from the home."

Homeschooling or die.

"The Foundation is named for Amadeu Antonio, a black Angolan who came to a small town in former East Germany as a contract worker. On the night of November 24, 1990, a group of white youth wielding baseball bats went searching for people of color they could attack. They found Amadeu Antonio and two other black men. They managed to escape, but Antonio was beaten unconscious, fell into a coma and never woke up. He died on December 6."

I don't really know, but on a first impression I'm willing to bet that things didn't really happened that way.

Unlikely. Kahane is a variation of Cohen, which is so common among Jews as to be a stereotype. Meir Kahane's family came to the US from Czechia some time in the late 19th century, so if they are related, it's probably fairly distantly.
Meir Kahane wanted to rebuild the religious foundations of Israeli society on Scriptural, not Talmudic roots, and to kick out all the non-Jews. Sounds like the good guy to me.

"Meir Kahane wanted to rebuild the religious foundations of Israeli society on Scriptural, not Talmudic roots,"

And for that, the New York City Jews hated him, and one of them murdered him.

I remember hearing about his his at-the-time upcoming speaking engagement in New York City, as the mainstream press derided him and called him controversial and "a racist." (Probably the only time in the modern era when a Jew has been called a racist by the mainstream press.

As I knew nothing about Kahane, I was curious about what made him such a controversial figure, and what the news reports would say about his speech.

Then around 9:15 PM there was a quick interruption on the radio with a news bulletin reporting that Kahane had been assassinated.

Somewhat off-topic but related to censorship/SJW, I just learned that Ragnar Redbeard's Might is Right is among the latest crop of books that a Certain Group has successfully lobbied to have banned from Amazon. They've really upped the book burnings in the last year, regarding anything that fits their ever widening idea of Wrongthink. Perhaps Castalia House will one day become an underground publisher of Bibles once the Gospel of John is banned...

You know what I miss? East Germany. It gave such undeniable evidence of the genuine folly of communism. Sure, there are other states nowadays with the extra qualifiers and adjectives in the names of their countries. But no situation quite stood out like East versus West Deutschland. To say nothing of the Olympics circuses!

When looking at a map, I still mentally divide the place.

Been stuck inside playing video games a lot lately thanks to the quarantine. The amount of SJW progressive narrative pushing is ridiculous and now we're not even allowed to speak out against it. And then when you factor in piss-poor artificial intelligence for single player and the vast amount of gammas who you invariably get stuck with on multiplayer, it is almost impossible to enjoy any more. I find myself going back to the older games from the 90s and 2000s which were better by a wide margin. Even now all they are doing is remaking old games.

Is there nothing out of reach of their tentacles?

The EA game "Command & Conquer: Generals", circa 2003, has USA, China and GLA factions, the last being persian/ muslim. They say funny stuff like "Can I have some shoos?". One of their infantry types is a suicide bomber that detonates on contact with enemies - with one-liners including: "I love a crowd". Classic.

Very much a 90s style game with zero fucks given.

I suppose we shouldn't expect a re-make anytime soon.

Because, unfortunately, most NFL and soccer fans ARE addicts.

They're addicted to the tension and exhiliration hormones produced by watching a close game, or a blow-out in their own favor, but it's still addiction.

You may have heard the term "adrenalin junkie" for people like BASE jumpers, etc.

It won't be a surprise to you if I respond Talmudicly, but (almost) free of parenthesis. There are, after all, two Talmuds, the Babylonian and Jerusalem, the former being The Talmud, colloquially. He didn't make quite the distinction you think between Biblical and Talmudic.

However, from your perspective, I can understand why you see it the way you do. He was a good guy.

Blogger Shimshon May 14, 2020 3:07 AM  

@30 Akulkis, I believe his murder has been attributed to an Arab. Certainly not a Jew. Not that such is unheard of. But not in this case.

However, the real hatred of him was from the Israel franchise of the Deep State. His murder wasn't long after he was elected into the Knesset, and then dumped by way of collusion to pass a law specifically to bar him from running ever again. They also started ramping up the threshold from 1% then to 3.25% today. No more upstarts. He had all of two (out of 120) seats, but as a serious and charismatic alternative to the feckless leadership of established left and right and secular and religious parties, he was a threat to all of them, even out of the Knesset.

East Germany was in some ways a poison pill for the West. While the Allies had spent a lot of time and effort in changing West German culture, the Soviets had just replaced one authoritarian system with another.

And many of those people seem to have never gotten the memo that the Cold War is over because their side lost.

361 degrees is equal to 1 degree. 1 degree of tolerance out of 360 degrees is intolerance.

Racism AND anti-semitism? Isn't one a subcategory of the other? Though of course anti-semitism also involves religion, culture, and nationhood. But the Semites (or some of them, anyway) gots to get their props.

I sometimes forget, not being a 24/7 goodthinker, how special the chosens are. I recently was banned from commenting on Website X on account of responding to a fairly stupid "Why does everyone hate us?" meme with a run-of-the-mill "undermining your host population" joke. The hammer was so swift and so final it took me aback for a second. Then I remembered: oh yeah, I live in a society where that's akin to relieving oneself on one's ancestors' graves.

@31- That book is from the 1890s and probably not likely to be read by much of anyone not already deep in Wrongthink. Though it is laid out in a fashion friendlier to the modern reader than other "social Darwinists" (i.e. Darwinists) like Spencer or Stoddard.

I heard that after Stalin died but before Khrushchev was appointed, Beria proposed to the West that East Germany be sold to the West for a lot of money, as USSR needed capital. East German commies found out and had him killed upon his return to Russia. I believe I heard this in the Secrets of War video series. Any truth to this?

@55 If they ban White Fang or Call of the Wild for being too manly, it'll be long past time to give live in the wilds of the Midwest.
Might is Great is great for entertainment value, like reading ethics as taught by Conan the Barbarian. My irritation at its banning stems from the fact it's been rooted out as anti-semitic and racist, when the truth is that it tears into white nationalism and National Socialism, along with Christianity, Zionism and progressivism. No 'ism' is left untouched by its Viking axe. The last year has seen over 100 titles vanished by amazon, all at the behest of a certain Group. I don't have much interest in revisionism, for instance, but it irks me that they what offends them has consequences, while everything else is protected by 'free speech'. It goes back to Vox's point that 'freedom of speech' was really just about toppling blasphemy laws, so that amazon now supplies oodles of screeds denying the existence of Jesus as a historical person, and plenty of 'literary' pornographic novels, not to mention multiple editions of the Communist Manifesto - but lately even items of historical interest like Mein Kampf are sliding off the shelves. You can still get MK, but they used to have multiple editions. I've noticed they don't have the selection they used to. It's not been banned outright like the Barnes Review Handbooks of Historical Revisionism, or the works of Alexsandre Dugin (a dated knee jerk reaction at its finest), but it's only a matter of time before it too is memory-holed and we have to trust instead our 'educators' to tell us what it said. Moreover, Amazon has such monopoly on the book industry that it's getting more and more difficult to find books it disapproves of. I've made a little hobby of collecting Forbidden Books, at least ones whose prices haven't yet gone through the roof. Most are unread and I'm not likely to plow through many of them, but I sperg out internally when my technocratic overlords tell me I'm not allowed to read something. Whoever inherits my little collection of Rancid Tomes (which will probably include the Bible and The Call of the Wild before it's complete) will have a treasure trove..and possibly a prison sentence to look forward to.

"Beria proposed to the West that East Germany be sold to the West for a lot of money, as USSR needed capital. East German commies found out and had him killed upon his return to Russia."

The Russians say that Beria was killed by Russians, as he was universally hated by nearly all Russians, including those in the Politburo.

Beria was the one who came up with the idea of putting people into forced-labor prisons and deliberately underfeeding them so that they would slowly die of starvation and malnourishment. He's also the guy who came up with the term "useless eater."

Whether East Germany wanted Beria dead or not, the Russians were going to kill him regardless.
