Hi all, So yesterday I was quick to sanitize this article but after thinking about it I’ve decided to reinstate it. (I can change my mind, right). By sanitizing it I’ve made it appear like Dan’s research wasn’t thorough, but it was. Dan is good at the Googles. So Der Kommissar (don’t get your panties in a bunch, reference to an 80’s Falco song and it’s slang for cocaine) will just have to deal. -c
Hello fellow consumers! Have you ever sat there on your platform surrounded by packaging while pontificating “I do so wonder where my internet money really goes?” Well thanks to the SCD Tip Line (We do have that) we can answer the question about one place at least.
This is the German Land Holding Group. I know what you’re thinking, “Oh another SL Land Baron! How awesome!” And yes, it is awesome. Another provider of land though by their Facebook page it appears to be entirely tropical (because I’ll be fucked if there’s another terrain type in Second Life)
The owner of this group is one Benny Sonnenkern in world. And he was super helpful by posting all of his real life information on the website. You know, just in case something went horribly wrong and you needed help. What a stand up guy! I wonder what else this guy does? Are you curious? I’m exceptionally curious!
Oh, this is fascinating! Apparently he ran for political office (3rd page down). But is it him? Same name, same address. Yep that’s him. That’s pretty cool. Civic Service should be commended right? Oh! He’s a member of the party called Die Republikaner. I wonder what they’re all about. I wonder what Wikipedia has to say about them. Here it is. I wonder what they’re about. Let’s take a look!
Well they’re big on German Nationalism..(where have I heard that before?)
They don’t like immigrants and especially non-white, non-christian ones…(seriously why does this sound familiar?)
Oh this doesn’t sound too bad…they work with other very conservative parties…wait. They don’t like other Europeans very much..(It’s on the tip of my brain..I totally recognize this stuff..)
They want to reunify Germany (wasn’t that done?) to pre-1937 size (uh oh) which includes parts of Poland, The Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Russia..
So basically they’re fucking Nazis. I really should be surprised by this…but these guys are experts at snatching up land. I bet they can get a whole sim by the time you can say “Oh hey there Sudentenland”
Maybe they’re not so bad as all that? They sell tropical land. Maybe it was just a phase? Maybe their logo is warm and inviting…
[Removed even though I don’t think DMCA applies here]
So the moral of this story? There are several.
1: If you are part of a controversial political group (I mean y’all thought the Christian Social Union of Bavaria was too soft for fuck’s sake) maybe hold off on the rl information when conducting business?
2: Nazis are bad.
3: Check to see where your money is really going every now and then.
