If anything Undertale's fourth-wall breaking was to me a spiritual successor to Spec Ops albeit goofier. It could still be just as dark though. The problem was it was attempting to deceive people as a Call of Duty clone and unlike Undertale couldn't get a massive social media/fanart following but to me hit home a lot more than Undertale. If you haven't played Spec Ops, it's I think now only $6 USD given it's been out since 2012 but trust me on this one if you really want to play a gem. It also features some great acting via Bruce Boxleitner from TRON and Kid from Kid n' Play.
I think there are a lot of folks in the US who get upset that Israeli politicians come here and expect that we owe them something. There are a lot of Americans who get upset that they've put in their hard work only to watch private companies reach out to immigrants just so they can pay them less. There are a lot who also really think the academic system of the United States and other Western nations have lost their essence because liberal arts has produced some of the most worthless degrees of self-importance that rivals even fine arts degrees.
The anti-"cuckservative" movement unfortunately takes these and runs them through the mud because they want to take the superficial and quick laugh over actual concern. It's as you said...it's like the young libertarians who don't know their ass from their elbow so they read some Daily Beast articles and then wax philosophical. There are issues that do indeed affect white folks, as social media seems intent on demonizing them constantly, but it's a lack of intelligent leadership that causes such theories to be completely idiotic.
However everything else can be seen as spot on. SJWs seem to have this hypocritical notion of forcing their "acceptance" down your throats yet ironically becoming that which they demonize. And notice how many of them are essentially middle to upper class white kids too. You know what this is? It's a product of sheer BOREDOM.
The point is that Anita goes on this tirade and expects Americans to do something about it when in fact they have in their own syndicated versions of Japanese video games. Most of her "damsels" are from Japanese games, not American, yet she prattles on about how patriarchal America and the West is being. It's absolutely important to understand where these games are coming from if they're coming from a culture that doesn't see women in gaming the way we do. There's no point in bringing up an actual problem in media if the targeted audience is NOT the core who can change it.
It doesn't support HER argument because SHE never brings it up to begin with. She brings up Japanese examples and then pins it on the West as being a problem of the West...when it's not.
Get it now?
And yeah good luck getting China, Russia, and India to follow suit. Kyoto was a classic sign that China is using some BS "I stick up for the little guy against the evil decadent West" to cover up the fact they're horrid in environmental management.
