We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Political correctness. "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” The left has defined the volcabulary, what can be said and what cannot. Which group is given deference and which group is discriminated against. You put a minority and a woman in the group who is opposed to the politically correct target and no one is allowed to challenge it. Any challenege is racist or sexist from the git go and there will be a price to pay. It is easier to say nothing and do nothing against community activists.
