Yup
I'm very happy to see that there is bipartisan outrage to this.

The general spirit of the Free Speech Clause being accepted as a wide consensus is one of the better development in American politics in the last 40 years or so.


Sadly I don't think any amount of bipartisan outrage will stop most corporations from submitting to China's every demand.

This continued deference to China in everything from Human Rights to Climate Change says everything you need to know about modern internationalism and our enlightened 'global citizens'.

20% of the world's population (give or take) is in the Western hemisphere. What's left is a lot of people that these corporations want to sell stuff to.

I know a lot of people at Blizzard. I really want to ask them what they think. They are all very quiet today

This is getting even worse for the NBA. Looks like the Sixers arena is privately owned, so no First Amendment violation, but that's about as close as you can get to one in practice.

Snaps to Warren for calling out the NBA, but her silence on the Blizzard controversy sickens me

pretty sure the NBA dwarfs Activision Blizzard in reach.

I doubt Warren knows that Blizzard exists, but then again they are huge in Asia because of esports.

Blizzard is really Activision Blizzard, they merged in 2008. $7.5 billion revenue in 2018 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activision_Blizzard), I bet she knows Blizzard exists. Easily in the top 5 of the world's largest video game companies. CoD, WoW, Overwatch, Hearthstone, Starcraft, Guitar Hero, Candy Crush, etc. etc.
