Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

As the Alt-Right, and white identity politics in general, grows in size as a counter-cultural force, we can expect The Cathedral to portray this phenomenon through satire. In proportion to the rate of Alt-Right growth, progressive satire will posses proportionally hysterical allegories, the end point being satire that increasingly approaches Godwin’s Law.

We see this phenomenon reflected in the TV series The Man in the High Castle, based on PKD’s 1962 alternative-history novel, and in American Horror Story: Cult, with its depiction of a trolling, sociopathic, Alt-Right cult leader Kai as the villain, the heroine being an HRC-citing feminist. Even CSI is in on the game.

We also see it in games such as the new Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. From the game’s website:

America, 1961. The assassination of Nazi General Deathshead was a short-lived victory. The Nazis maintain their stranglehold on the world. You are BJ Blazkowicz, aka “Terror-Billy,” member of the Resistance, scourge of the Nazi empire, and humanity’s last hope for liberty.

The game has a second order easter egg about Richard Spencer.
