Conservatives and Republicans in Second Life

Last Sunday, I wrote that Second Life (SL) “can be used to organize and train conservatives and teach future conservatives about the Constitution, capitalism, socialism, and so on.”  This afternoon I spent a few minutes searching to see how SL is being used by conservatives and Republicans.  Using the “in-world” search function, I found the following groups:

  • Republican Party of SL (566 members)
  • **The Grand Old Party** (209 members)
  • Ron Paul for President (361 members)
  • John McCain for America (243 members)
  • Conservative Coalition (92 members)
  • Stand Strong America (15 members)
  • Rush Limbaugh Fans (74 members)
  • Sarah Palin for President in 2012 (3 members)
  • Go Sarah Go! (49 members)
  • SecondLife Friends of Fred Thompson (3 members)
  • Mike Huckabee for President (4 members)
  • The Conservative Hall of Fame (2 members)
  • Conservative Matters (36 members)
  • Conservative Women’s Forum (15 members)
  • Conservative Party of SL (109 members)
  • Second Life Conservatives (18 members)
  • Conservaties and Patriots (18 members)
  • Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions (17 members)

I also found residents named Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Fred Thompson, and Newt Gringrich.  It looked as though the Coulter and Gingrich avatars might really belong to those individuals.

There were no results for the following individuals and organizations:

  • Sean Hannity
  • Bobby Jindal
  • Michelle Malkin
  • Mitt Romney
  • Heritage Foundation
  • American Enterprise Institute or AEI
  • Independence Institute
  • Heartland Institute
