Remember Bioshock Infinite? It was a game that heavily satirized the rah-rah jingoistic nationalism that runs deep in many corners of the United States - the kind that breeds a fear and hatred of immigrants, despite being a country completely comprised of immigrants (and a few Native Americans the original settlers didn't kill).

Anyways, Fox News has mayyyybe co-opted the logo for Bioshock Infinite in a piece about the recent controversy over immigration. Which could be a clever satirical remark on the current political climate, but is - in all likelihood - just them sincerely missing the point completely and not grasping the irony of the situation at all.

Even Bioshock Infinite mastermind Ken Levine noticed the not-so-subtle artistic borrowing:

Of course, this isn't the first time someone has mistaken the over-the-top satire of Bioshock Infinite for a genuine reflection of their political beliefs - a few months back, the National Liberty Foundation mistook this satirical piece of in-game propoganda (filled to the brim with terrible racist stereotypes) as a pretty cool they totally agreed with.

The lesson of all of this? Stop taking things from Bioshock Infinite people, unless it's that barbershop quartet cover of "God Only Knows."
