Citation From the June 8, 2020, edition of Salem Radio Networks' America First with Sebastian Gorka:

SEBASTIAN GORKA (HOST): And then there's the question of the corporate acquiescence, the corporate genuflecting. So, I have a screenshot.


GORKA: I don't know which company it is -- Eric, you could look it up, but the most popular company for computer games, or one of the most popular games in the world is Call of Duty. It might be "EAA" or whatever, but you can text me, Eric.

So if you switched on to play online last week, Call of Duty, before you could play, this black screen appeared on your computer, with the sign "Black Lives Matter" and underneath, a message from the corporate owners of this multibillion dollar industry. 

Let's be clear here, people don't realize this, the gaming industry, computer games, makes more money than Hollywood, by factors.


So, here we have the message from Activision: "Black Lives Matter. Our community is hurting, the systemic inequalities our community experiences are once again center stage. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our black community endures" -- "our black community" -- "Until change happens and black lives matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be." 

Alex Marlow, I thought this was a computer game. 

MARLOW: Yeah, it's just pandering. It's just virtue signaling, and the thing that disturbs me the most isn't that black lives don't matter -- of course black lives do matter --

GORKA: Of course they do. 

MARLOW: The issue is that no one disagrees with that, and yet, you're being compelled by a religious cult that is forcing you to either do this behavior, or you get branded with the scarlet "R" for racist, which is the worst thing you can get branded in the United States. 

And they dumbed down the standard, from a racist actually treats black people or brown people worse than they treat other people, to now if you support Donald Trump you're a racist, to now, if you don't openly endorse Black Lives Matter, you're a racist. 

And if they're able to pull this off, Dr. G., it is the end of free speech in this country. 

GORKA: Fascinating word you used there, you said "cult." Cults usually have leaders, whether it's the Branch Davidians, whether it's Charles Manson, Helter Skelter -- is there a leader here? Is it a leaderless cult? Who's that leader, and what are their objectives?
