I never liked shooting at poor people in foreign countries in the other FarCry games, but shooting a (virtual, of course!!) right wing extremist nutcase in the face... Well... This is about as pc as killing Nazis in Wolfenstein, right?

Yes I do. From the sounds of it you certainly don't. There's nothing contradictory about large groups of extremists comprising the mainstream. Entire nation states like NK, mulsim caliphates, et al are all extremist and the mainstream. This sort of xtian theocratic view is prevalent among xtians everywhere which is about 60% of Americans. I don't know how you can not grasp something that simple. The National Socialist party in Germany, extremists that ran the country. See how that works? Getting it yet?

If you feel that a crazy fictional cult is offensive perhaps the real problem is that you live a life too relatable to a crazy fictional cult. I don't recall many people being up in arms about the dark brotherhood in Skyrim lampooning their lives.

The 'evils' in the game are a religious cult, you know, like almost every whacky Far Cry game. I don't see the controversy here I guess?

Do republicans say, in the real world, worship a weird group whom they have to call the leader their 'Father' and they are his 'children' and his name is Joseph Seed? The game description says "Project at Eden's Gate" is "known to utilize scorched-earth tactics, destroying farms and other potential supplies of the Resistance."

Yeah, try that in the real world and they would be dead or arrested pretty quick by a pretty big task force, FBI, National Guard, etc mobilizing against the equivalent of a Terrorist Cell. Basically the bad guy is like the dude from the movie "Red State" and they all get killed by the ATF.

They know it fits. Religious crazies in a small town.

It's funny how much reality can change between the conception of a game and its release. What might have been considered a fantasy two years ago might be beginning to approach reality today.

The fantasy is that these people are confined to remote regions of the flyover. Remember the good ole days of the 90s/00s when racist shitheads never went more than 50 yards away from their cabins?

edit: I'm not sure Far Cry 5's insular fascist cult is racist, I guess that's another one we can chalk up in the fantasy category

I don't know why Ubi is portraying them as a cult when these extremists already exist in the mainstream, they're called Christians.

Exploring the radical roots of Roy Moore’s theocratic Christianity

Christian Reconstruction is an obscure far-right ideology developed by a man named Rousas John Rushdoony. In her book, "Building God's Kingdom: Inside the World of Christian Reconstruction," Ingersoll writes that Rushdoony "started a movement — Reconstruction, which sought to remake the whole of society to conform to his reading of the Bible — that didn't attract much support, but the movement's ideas became a driving force in American politics."

Moore doesn't identify openly as a Christian Reconstructionist, but then again, hardly anyone does. Rushdoony was, among other things, a Holocaust denier, a slavery apologist and a virulent racist who opposed racial integration and called for the death penalty for gay people. Openly calling oneself a follower of his is unwise even in the Deep South, and Christian fundamentalists understand this. But Rushdoony's ideas, Ingersoll told Salon, are pervasive in the Christian right.

The Reconstruction movement, Ingersoll explained, teaches that the role of civil government is to "to punish evildoers and provide for its own national defense," while everything else should fall under the authority of church and family. There is to be no business regulation, no civil rights protection, no welfare, no environmental regulation and most definitely no public education. All these things are understood as responsibilities belonging to churches or families, living in a world "where ultimately everyone will be a Christian" in, to be sure, the Reconstruction movement's "understanding of being a Christian."

These theocrats have always been around. It's almost funny how they always rag on Iran when Iran is, point in fact, the sort of theocratic fantasy they're constantly jerking off to. These fucking fruitcakes belong in mental asylums, not running countries.
