Or Q-anon. Or anti-vaccine conspiracy theories. Or the death threats sent to everyone, regardless of their politics.
Or, for that matter, the many folks currently screaming about Mr. Potato Head being canceled, because they don't understand why the Potato Head brand covers both Mr. and Mrs, as well as any unmarried baked potatoes I'm not familiar with.
