Everybody is concerned with the coming elections, and they are all split between Trump’s campaign and Hillary’s campaign. Palmer Luckey made public to Daily Beast that he is financially supporting a group that promotes pro-Donald Trump posts. He also used his money to fund some groups who are promoting anti-Hillary posts. The advantage of being the co-founder at Oculus brought him $700 million from Facebook due to his company.
With this money, he made a significant donation to Nimble America, a group which is bound to encourage anti-posts. The Nimble America group claims that they proved memes with Trump’s campaign work wonders. Their purpose is to use posts that are discouraging not only online but also in the real world.
The last update that was made on this group was on July 11th. Palmer Luckey tells the media how he got to this group by searching on Facebook. Oculus’ co-founder asserted that this American group wanted to bring rumors and make a fundraising. When Luckey found out about this from their leader, he promised to pay them for both. He also paid upfront for their common interest and then paid for their ads.
Luckey used the nickname NimbleRichMan on Nimble America and posted an explanation about how he supports Trump’s campaign because of his ambitious character and determination. He claims he advised Trump to run for the presidency during the last election, when Luckey was 19 years old and had just based his company, Oculus.
Luckey continued to claim, under his pseudonym, that money is power and only wealthy people will run the world. When seeing all these posts, Trump’s supporters began to feel uncomfortable in front of wealthy Luckey who gave so much money for Trump’s campaign. Milo Yiannopoulos testified for Luckey’s genuine intentions in front of Trump’s supporters. Some Reddit users didn’t believe after all the existence of this wealthy man who was behind this whole American group. These users kindled Palmer’s idea of funding the Nimble America to step from the shadows into the light and become a real-world organization.
Dustin Ward, co-founder at Nimble America, informed Daily Beast that his group managed to raise $11,000, but without revealing how much of that sum was from Luckey.
What do you think about this group called Nimble America and their intentions? Do you believe that Palmer Luckey’s way of expressing support for Trump’s campaign is a healthy one?
