As soon as the local moms’ group got resuscitated after the COVID wars, a new calamity came.
Some SJW chick joined the group and started posting endless racial-justicey screeds, listing every racial hoax (Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Napping While Black, and on and on) and wailing about “white supremacists.” The poor women in the group started wriggling in confused shame, incapable of telling this freak to go stuff it. The founder of the group meekly reminded that political content was against the group’s rules but everybody got so scandalized by the extreme racism of her “silencing a person of color who is speaking her truth” that the poor kid (she’s 24) got expelled from the group she herself had started.
Now the SJW chick is the group’s moderator. She’s posting one SJW screed after another. Everybody (meaning all of two brave women) who tried to suggest, as politely as possible, that a moms’ FB page is not the right place for this kind of thing got tarred and feathered by the people who are particularly terrified of angering the SJW chick.
Before I left the group, I looked at the membership list. All of the immigrants I know (there are few of us in town, so it’s easy to know each other) had quietly left the group. I was one of the few remaining ones. But not for long. I unfollowed immediately after, leaving native-born Americans to play this ridiculous game on their own.
At least, the SJW chick hasn’t found the local buy/sell page yet.
