Apologies aren't enough. Fire all the staff and cancel Bungie, cancel them now! This is racist and sexist and homophobic and transphobic and erm, phobicphobic, etc, etc....

First bit from that video:

Call me crazy, but I think it is time for us as a society to fucking move on from WWII and just stop complaining about these sort of crap because it offends NO ONE as most people who lived during that era are either dead or are 80/90/100Y olds who don't give a shit anymore.

Nope, there are pretty important lessons to learn from the historical period and the dynamics around the events (one aspect being the many very dangerous doctrines from the Marxists in Russia to the Nazis, Maoists & the Japanese on the other side of the planet)... How they all feed one another, and how Marxists and Nazis both wanted total control of the world, both pushed for identirian views of society and human relationships.

So sure, don't worship the Nazis*, punch them even... But don't act like the hammer and sickle was an acceptable alternative to the hammer and sickle of the Marxists, they're both disgusting ways to see the world and their leaders don't deserve any kind of sympathy.

*Actual Nazis, not everyone to the left of Marx.

People who see any reference or offence in these things should see a doctor as soon as possible

What a shitty time to be alive, can't do or say anything without being judged as a racist, antisemitist and such

They should have said " we're sorry if some players are complete idiots, we understand their problems and we hope a specialist will help them"

A company could make a game completely devoid of any recognizable imagery and some dipshit bleeding heart would still manage to find something that may potentially resemble something that may have been offensive to someone.

The problem is people give these losers attention which makes them feel vindicated in their quest to ruin everyone else's day.

You seem offended

As someone said before, these terms are commonly used in battle and war circumstances and possibly in other medias happened before, without others noticing it

People today just find funny to complain about everything, probably a new Esport

Yeah, but when I say "we should move on" I mean moving on from whatever thing the words "blood and honor" meant back in 1940 because we are not in the 40s anymore and today those words don't carry at all the same meaning they did back then. That sort of stuff.

I gotta be honest, the name of the event coupled with the name of the challenge made me raise an eyebrow...

Ok I’m sorry but this is absurd. Intent clearly was not meant to be nazi supporting or antisemitic. This is simply another case of people tripping over themselves to be offended.

Hillary supporter

Lmfao, i voted against trump then, just as i did this year. But even ive gotta say this lady needs to get a grip. Seriously the fucking cancel brigade is out on full alert these days. Its like all these people do is seek out things that offend them and scream about until it is censored or removed. What fucking babies. I vote liberal, and a lot of my views align with that. But i cant stand offense culture. Im for making things better for marginalized groups, but I'm against taking out a microscope and inspecting everything for stuff that someone might find offensive and screaming about it on social media.

Might as well cancel Socialism since the Nazi party was a socialist party. People who complain about this stuff are the biggest whiners on the internet.

I would bet that Hitler said the word destiny once so they should definitely change the name of their game.

We actually had moved on but some people find it beneficial to keep dredging up the past.

Nazis also breathed oxygen so everyone at Bungie should stop breathing so as to not support bigotry.

How did people even notice this? Are they experts in Nazi slogans or what?

Blood and Honor is the name of one of the biggest international neonazi groups now. Canada recently put them on the terrorist list. Its not the household name like Bloods or Crips but still if you have some basic knowledge about gangs you probably heard that name (and slogan).
