US Presidential politics comes to World of Warcraft

Gamepolitics.com has covered a march undertaken by 200 or so avatars in World of Warcraft to support US Presidential election candidate Ron Paul, who’s on the Republican side of the fence.

Second Life is a regular venue for political discourse but it’s fair to say World of Warcraft isn’t a natural fit as there’s no ability to create individual content to augment political activism. That hasn’t stopped people from making their views clear via this march and it’ll be fascinating to see if there’s growth of such events in WoW in the lead up to November’s elections. What’s stopping some PvP events occurring along political lines? Election campaigns can be brutal on both the combatants and the electorate so this would be an obvious next step.
