Palmer Luckey’s politics were hiding in plain sight

Palmer Luckey’s politics were hiding in plain sight
By Kristen V. Brown 9/25/16 9 AM

On Friday evening, a little more than 24 hours after the revelation that boy wonder and Oculus founder Palmer Luckey was the moneyman behind a strange scheme to bring down Hillary Clinton using the power of memes, the 24-year-old near-billionaire posted an apology to Facebook.

Luckey had, he explained, given $10,000 to a pro-Trump, nonprofit organization called Nimble America because it had “fresh ideas” for how to communicate with young voters. But he asked people to stop renouncing their support for Oculus, as his views don’t represent that of the virtual reality headset company he sold to Facebook in 2014 for $2 billion.
