And then there are the Democrats joining the #WalkAway and #RedPill movements.

Hamlet Au

#WalkAway is a trend promoted by Russian bots:

Russian bots are using #WalkAway to try to wound Dems in midterms: https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/17/opinions/russian-bots-2018-midterm-elections-opinion-love/index.html

#RedPill is associated with white supremacists:

Nalates, if you support Trump's racist, anti-Muslim, misogynist statements, all of which violate Second Life's Community Standards, why do you bother using such a liberal platform? (Assuming your comment wasn't itself actually made by a bot.)

"And then there are the Democrats joining the #WalkAway and #RedPill movements."

Sure there are, half-wit. Sure there are.

metacam oh

Amazing there are still people who look at the Trump Treason Carnival and think everyone else is deranged.

Poor NPCs

Funny how the NPCs come out of the woodwork. That's what you all are, far leftist flesh vessels with poor programming. You parrot the exact same anti-Trump rhetoric over and over and over.

'ORANGE MAN BAD!' 'BUT MUH RUSSIAN BOTS!' It is really sad at this point.

And also Hamlet, this bit:

Nalates, if you support Trump's racist, anti-Muslim, misogynist statements, all of which violate Second Life's Community Standards, why do you bother using such a liberal platform?

Are you a spokesperson for LL to say what it is and isn't? That seemed like a threat toward Nalates, albeit veiled. Walkaway and Redpill are not associated with any of the links you posted. You are inherently dishonest and it shows.

November 6th is coming, and you folks better get ready. It's going to be 2016 all over again. By then your NPC code should be updated and hopefully you will have new material-maybe. Oh and I am sure you will delete this. Almost positive you will. ;)

Who the hell do you think you are to proclaim SL a "liberal platform" It's actually ideally supposed to be a platform of free expression not your safe space from 2016 butthurt.

Talla_Adam (@Gaga_Gracious)

Personally, I don't have time for all the political hate flying around and I think Trump's mouth runs away with him but honestly Hamlet you make me die with your hysterical anti-Trump propaganda. Ok, so you are some kind of centre left liberal or maybe one of those far left fanatics. That's ok but Second Life, as was mentioned about is about creativity and free expression. If you are going to write about Second Life please don't ram your political views down our throats. You are capable of doing better things that make for interesting reading. If you want to do politics than be honest and change the name of this blog to something like "New World Order" and drop "New World Notes".

Linden Lab was explicit on the platform values, when they strongly opposed against Trump's executive order:
https://www.lindenlab.com/releases/linden-lab-statement-on-trumps-executive-order-on-immigration

"We reject racism, intolerance, and xenophobia.

We are proud to include immigrants among our leadership, colleagues, and customers, as well as our families, friends, and communities. We value diversity, compassion, and understanding, and we are proud that our products enable people to come together and form meaningful connections regardless of differences in their offline lives.

Trump’s order is counter to what we value and antithetical to American ideals."

Nalates spreads misinformation all the time. We have already seen her whataboutism, logical fallacies, let alone the BS that was already debunked.

Clara Seller

I grew up in a ruralish Ohio area where my broad family,friends,and neighbors once had full middle class lives with excellent public education, healthcare, independent industry, unique main streets, unimaginable safety, affordable everything, and a promise of a hopeful future. Now it's an obliterated wasteland.

The Republicans didn't save this. The Democrats didn't save this. The Russians didn't invade, the immigrants didn't take it over, and the terrorists didn't blow it up. The forces that have mowed down millions of Americans, killed millions of people across the globe, bought our media and filled our heads with nonsense, bought our representative government to use as a siphon on every resource is not our friend. It's not protecting us and it won't stop until it's all gone up in flames.

Stop choosing sides of the mafia. We don't have a single representative left. Not one. Zip. Zilch. Zero. All we really have is each other. As long as we're opposing each other, we have nothing.

K.R.

Clara, it's so refreshing to see people like you, who's brains have not yet melted and dribbled out of their ear holes. Gives me hope that not everyone has gone mad.

Clara Seller

Thing is, K.R., I don't see clearly. I've just completely shut off all news sources, thrown away all politicians, and just started to pick apart all of the brainwashing stored in the attic. I'm a mess. Everywhere I look I see addicts and junkies fighting over their next fix, spinning in hamster wheels, and fighting for the same failed solutions spouted by the same failed puppets over and over and over. The earth didn't create overloads for us to beg from. We did.

Aliasi Stonebender

Y'know, looking up above... the whole attempt at the NPC meme is such an amazing self-own on the part of those who came up with it, given how predictable they can be, and how silly it is.

Whereas the "#walkaway" thing is at least in line with stuff I've heard the far-lefty crowd go on for once. You know, the folks who'd as soon vote the Green Party for President in the US to "send a message".

I suppose it shouldn't be a surprise professional Russian trolls are more competent than the channer amateurs.

Jacques Mesrine

Nalates Urriah and Trump share the believe - besides - that global warming is kind of a hoax...

Problematic to avoid Trump these days, especially when it's not a single issue but a worldwide problem with the mentally-challenged in ruling positions, regarding these types mimicking him in a dozen countries.

If the Trumps cannot be avoided, Nalates can.
