According to The Verge and Vice, members of the online alt-right and white nationalists movements are upset that Nazi and KKK villains in the new Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus game are portrayed negatively. They are also calling the game and Bethesda Softworks, the company that created it, "anti-white" in favor of "political correctness."


According to Vice, Wolfenstein II is set in a dystopian "alternative history" where Nazis won World War II. Users play as "William 'B.J.' Blazkowicz," and "form a resistance and kill many Nazis in a gory, disgusting fashion."

In comments on the trailer for the game and threads about it on 4chan and Reddit, alt-right users expressed anger over the portrayal of Nazis as villains, and one anti-Semitic commenter on the YouTube trailer claimed that "nationalism and heritage is bad" unless it comes to Jewish people.

The bigoted complaints didn't stop there -- one 4chan user claimed Bethesda is "trying to destroy [the] gaming industry with political correctness f*ggotry."

Still others were upset that the game featured a black female character, and used both racist slurs and dog-whistles decrying the "Black Lives Matter overtone" of the game. One scene featured the character calling a white villain "white boy," and a Youtube commenter with an Alex Jones avatar claimed it was proof of the "racist agenda against white people."
