A New Installment Of DOOM Is Coming Out And You’ll Never Guess Why Social Justice Warriors Are Already Angry.

A new installment in the classic DOOM video game series, “DOOM: Eternal,” will hit store shelves next year (in 2019), and while there’s plenty for social justice warriors to be mad about — its first person shooter narrative, its backwards ideas of toxic masculinity — it turns out, the leftists and feminists hordes are besieging DOOM’s parent company, Bethesda, over a few throwaway lines of dialogue that appeared in a trailer released this week.

You see, DOOM’s developers decided to poke a little harmless fun at social justice warriors, particularly in light of how involved they are in criticizing the gaming industry, by giving one of DOOM’s more minor characters, an artificial intelligence “greeter,” a social justice-y bent.

The AI’s job, apparently, is to encourage humans, under attack from monstrous demons unleashed from the pit of Hell, to welcome their new underworld overlords with compassion, kindness, and, yes, tolerance.

” My brothers and sisters,” the robot says, “let’s help to make our friends transition into our world a comfortable one.”

She adds, “Remember: ‘demon’ can be an offensive term, refer to them as ‘mortally challenged.’” And, “Earth is the universe’s melting pot.”

Worse still, the AI sets out some of the DOOM: Eternal backstory, suggesting that humans allowed the demons to pour through the ubiquitous DOOM hell-mouth in a fit of immigration liberality; in other words, humanity’s doom is sealed because Hell has “open borders.”

That, the SJWs shrieked, is just plain racist.

Funny Junk and RedState compiled some of the more hysterical responses including, “Like, that’s not funny, its just irritatingly out of touch,” and “seriously, stop making jokes like ‘demon is an offensive term’ because it seriously sucks for those of us who actually face offensive terms.”

Sure.
