Valve Apologizes as Hatred Greenlight Campaign Returns

The Steam Greenlight campaign for Hatred has returned, not long after it was ended by Valve, who said at the time: "Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we'll be taking it down." Polish developer Destructive Creations' announcement of this isometric shooter admitted its themes are "disturbing," and this sparked controversy from the start. The Hatred Steam Community forums are filled with posts about the game's prospects being of being published, many expressing outrage that it exists, and many other expressing outrage at attempts to get it quashed. According to Destructive Creations, they received the following apologetic explanation from Valve's Gabe Newell:
Hi, Jaroslaw.

Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight. Since I wasn’t up to speed, I asked around internally to find out why we had done that. It turns out that it wasn’t a good decision, and we’ll be putting Hatred back up. My apologies to you and your team. Steam is about creating tools for content creators and customers.

Good luck with your game.
Gabe

Here's the money quote:

"Cult of the Cursed Soldiers

Building the identity of the extreme right in Poland is based on honoring the memory of the anti-communist underground, mainly the National Armed Forces militia formed during the WW II by Polish nationalists. This formation was a part of the “Cursed Soldiers” which is the common name of the post-WW II Polish anti-communist guerilla groups. There are several associations that promotes commemoration of the NSZ, including support for youth groups, reenactment groups, there are special issues of journals about this topic, there are organized demonstrations and meetings, and there are textiles (t-shirts, blouses, hats) connected with NSZ. Even polish neo-fascist informal groups are changing their image from “nazi bonehead” to so-called “patriotic”."
Show me these neo-nazis demonstration in Poland. Because I live here and apparently have yet to see them.
