Ok, just got to put my 2 cents out here...
First off, contrary to what some people living in a state of absolute, mind-numbing denial WANT to believe, America is NOT the inventor of all evil, nor the sole perpetrator of all evil, nor the origin of all evil, nor the inspiration of all evil, so get your feckin' head out of whatever mite-infested hole you've shoved it in.
Second, and continuing along that strain, OTHER countries which have provided influence in this and other games (including Japan itself) are ALSO guilty of "great evils" and "widespread oppression" and yes, even genocide. And Japan (from which a TON of "influence" and "inspiration" is injected into this game), need I remind you, sided with ADOLPH FREAKIN' HITLER in WWII. So, yea, that soap box/high horse you're on? Get off it. You're making an ass of yourself.
Third, as others have already stated Independence Day is NOT a "political statement," it is a remembrance of those who stood AGAINST tyranny, AGAINST oppression, AGAINST an empire that was responsible for 99% of the "evil" you ignorantly blame on Americans (and oh, just to be clear, the British Empire didn't "invent" any of that BS, either). So your argument about "keeping politics out of gaming" is as ignorant as it is hypocritical given YOUR politically-charged, propaganda-fueled "monkey-flinging-poo" impersonation here.
Fourthly, who the actual f* do you think you are lumping damn near 350 MILLION people into a single box like that? There's a word for that kind of thing: bigotry, and it is NOT welcome here. Or anywhere for that matter.
Fifth, before you go spewing a bunch of offensive generalizations and demonstrating a complete and utter ignorance of history, you might want to do some ACTUAL research. Might learn a thing or two.
Sixth, until and unless you're going to demand ALL "cultural influences" and ALL "holidays" and ALL "seasonal events" and, in essence any and all reference to literally ANYTHING anywhere on Earth (up to and including human beings themselves) be completely removed from the game because SOMEBODY somewhere MIGHT be as closed-minded, empty-headed, and hypocritical as you and be "offended" by their own ignorance...quite frankly sit down and shut up. Again, you're making an ass of yourself and mindlessly insulting hundreds of millions of people with your bigotry.
Last but certainly not least: You don't like it, you don't have to play. Your ignorant, hypocritical, and overtly hateful attitude will NOT be missed.
