King_sunset_detail

Happy MLK/Inauguration Day, everyone. Once upon a time (by which I mean six years ago today), a virtual war in Second Life broke out; a far-right political party, an autism support group, and exploding pigs were involved. And since that was back in a time when the visage of Dr. King would shine in the Second Life sun, his face looked down on the aftermath. Read about "Fighting the Front" right here.

A crazy story and a fine piece of journalism, Hamlet. Great to re-read it.

How much influence do these FN folks have in Europe now, in 2013?

Are they still going strong? I seem to recall a few articles about them here and there in recent years - members getting in trouble. But not details.
