BioShock Infinite Creator Ken Levine Responds To Stormfront's Criticism Of His Video Game; Some Stormfronters Consider It Anti-White

Apparently a video game called BioShock Infinite, now scheduled to hit the stores on March 26th, 2013, attracted the attention of Stormfront members, who began a discussion thread about it back on September 23rd, 2010. Many were concerned that it might promote a "kill racist whitey" mentality. But Stormfronters eventually lost interest in the subject.

Until the game's creator, Ken Levine, refueled the interest on December 14th, 2012. According to GameRevolution, Levine noted that because BioShock Infinite deals with a number of sensitive issues including politics, religion, and race, he has received complaints from a number of sources, and acknowledged the feedback from Stormfront. "I remember that I saw postings, unfortunately, on a white supremacist website, Stormfront, where people literally said, ‘The Jew Ken Levine is making a white-person-killing simulator’", said Levine. But Levin has also attracted criticism from Tea Party members, and also from leftists who complain his game is trying to tear down the labor movement. This story also got a brief mention by Forbes.

As far as whether or not Ken Levine is Jewish, he does not bluntly say so, but in this much more detailed interview with PC Gamer, he is quoted as saying, "I realized, in BioShock, that we didn’t have any minority characters. Well, we had a lot of Jewish, Eastern European Jewish characters, which probably comes from my background". The phrase "from my background" effectively removes all doubt, although he apparently thinks being Jewish in his case is merely anecdotal. He doesn't see himself as the enemy of the White race.

Actually, the Stormfront thread contains mixed reaction. There are a few that say that it's only a video game and we should not really be concerned. Others also say Whites should not waste time on video games. However, there are a few who play video games who do so for hours and hours on end. This means video game creators have an incredible ability to influence such people through repetition. If a White gamer plays a video game with an anti-White message for hours on end, it could easily inculcate and embed anti-White attitudes. Anti-racism could become an alternate reality for such people. So it is important to at least call attention to this situation.

Most areas of "popular culture/entertainment" are anti-White, so its only natural that video games would be too.

What gets me is that its much more than just kids playing these games. Many, many people in their 20s, well into their 30s and probably older spend big $$$ and a crazy amount of time on these pointless games.

Just another avenue for Whites to piss away their resources on distraction and fun while the country rots away.
