Hamlet at New World Notes ran an article on the protest around a Bernie supporter’s region. See: Bernie Sanders’ Second Life Headquarters Besieged by Trump-Supporting Swastikas, Demons and 120 Ft. Fireworks-Spewing Donald Trump Statue.
I guess we know who Hamlet DOES NOT support. His choice and pretty much understandable considering the current media coverage. However, I find Hamlet’s coverage of the protest rather shallow. It is what I would expect from a Bernie supporter or an anti-Trump person, not that Hamlet is either. But, there is more to this story than Hamlet is telling and I expect omissions from someone with an agenda. Hamlet’s, if he has one, could just be to get clicks or it could be deeper.
First read Hamlet’s article and decide how many people might be protesting. I’ll explain what I’ve found. I think you’ll find it more interesting after reading Hamlet’s article.
Now with some clicking a Second Life™ user can find out who put up the signs and owns the land with the main Trump promo, not RL names, just in-world names. You’ll find the center of the teacup storm here: Caspoli. (SL-URL*) The area is constantly changing. So, the Trump image atop a 180m edifice is gone, but may be back. They also seem to have run out of fireworks (4/30).
A person put up the main sign and fireworks display. Everything I can find leads back to one person. They have also put up the For God and Country signs which are misrepresentative of Trump’s stated views and rather unflattering to Trump. Not something I think a Trump supported would do.
I couldn’t find the Nazi Swastika flags with the Trump name others have featured. But, those too are more likely an idea from anti-Trump people or the politically ignorant… I guess it is more PC to say politically uneducated to avoid offending those having trouble dealing with a Trump sign, but no issue with riots.
By the way, remember. Hitler was the head of the National Socialist Party of Germany and the Swastika was their ‘logo’. The symbol originates in antiquity, pre second century B.C. In Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism it represents auspiciousness. The Nazi use of the symbol in WWII gave it a stigma connoting racist oppression and brutality. Not a symbol one would want on their promotional material in western society.
A little further thought raises some interesting questions about this supposed Bernie protest. iRL we see Alinsky style violent and disruptive protests by RL people from the radical Left. Not even the GOP establishment people protesting Trump are trying to disrupt his rallies. They are working hard to discredit him, which isn’t all that hard. But, the Right is not disruptive. It is only the radical Left, supposed supporters of free speech, trying to stop Trump’s political speech by disrupting his rallies. So, the SL protest against Bernie is very out of character.
