Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has been founding a Pro-Trump, Anti-Hillary organization known as Nimble America.
Nimble America is self-defined as a “social welfare 501(c)4 non-profit” and are in favor of the Republican nominee. Their mission is to “shitposting” and spreading internet memes that bash the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The report comes from the Daily Beast who say that Luckey has told them that he posted to Reddit under the name “NimbleRichMan.” Many people on Reddit did not believe it was him, and gave the organization backlash.
A post on Reddit by Nimble America says:
What we’ve been able to accomplish here has been amazing and much bigger than any of us and certainly much bigger than Reddit.
We’ve proven that shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real.
Luckey told the Daily Beast that he is simply the money man of the organization, yet the organization’s website lists him as the Vice President.
He also said that he thought it was funny, and that’s why he was doing it, saying:
I thought it sounded like a real jolly good time.
However, his posts as NimbleRichMan seem a bit more serious than a jolly good time.
“The American Revolution was funded by wealthy individuals,” NimbleRichMan, the name Luckey told Daily Beast he was using, posted on Saturday, “The same has been true of many movements for freedom in history. You can’t fight the American elite without serious firepower. They will outspend you and destroy you by any and all means.”
