Far-right video game encourages homophobic mass shootings
A new far-right video game incites the mass murder of LGBT+ people in gay nightclubs.
White supremacist Christopher Cantwell, a prominent far-right figure who attended the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017, released independent game Angry Goy II on November 11.
In the arcade-style shooter game, players can use “guns, knives, pepper spray and more” to fight against what Cantwell describes as “mongrels and degenerates,” comprising mainly of ethnic minorities, journalists, LGBT people and Jewish people.
The Angry White Men blog, which tracks the far-right online, notes that one level in the game features a mission where players “break into a gay club, called the ‘LGBTQ+ Agenda HQ,’ and slaughter everyone inside.”
The club inside the game is decorated with Pride flags as well as background items attempting to conflate homosexuality and paedophilia.
Signs in the gay club say “CHILDREN WELCOME.” and include references to paedophile group NAMBLA.
The horrifying game comes two years after a terrorist opened fire in the Pulse gay club in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people.
ISIS-inspired terrorist Omar Mateen carried out the attack on the gay club in June 2016, one of the most extreme acts of anti-LGBT violence ever recorded.
At the time, the attack was the most deadly mass shooting in modern US history, though it was later surpassed by the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting.
