Activision Removes Tiananmen Square from ‘Cold War’ Game Trailer

Activision apparently never read its own tagline “KNOW YOUR HISTORY OR BE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.” The company edited its new video game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to cater to communist China.

Activision quietly replaced the game trailer with one far shorter. The new one noticeably omitted footage from the famous Tiananmen Square crackdown by the communist Chinese government, which had a death toll of 10,000, according to the BBC

Showing the evil of Chinese communist tyranny is apparently too controversial, even though that’s current events. Especially since China is an enormous potential market.  “Activision gave no indication as to why the first trailer was removed, or even that it had happened, but according to South China Morning Post, it's because the original video contained a brief clip of footage from the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, an event that's heavily censored in China,” PC Gamer reported.

Today we see companies like Activision Blizzard mention their solidarity with BLM, while kowtowing to a communist country that puts people in concentration camps. You need to realize that politically correct liberalism is just another marketing scheme used by the powerful so they can keep profiting from tyranny.
