Almost 10 years ago, and I disenrolled from the Democratic party. I think you might want to dial it back a bit on your predictive abilities.I never said Apollyon was hyper-liberal or performatively woke.
But since you decided to challenge my assertion that there is a correlation between political affiliation and a poster's disgust or support for Veers, I should point out that I had zero sources.
My point was that it seems that Veers's biggest enemies on this site seemed to be people who oppose his views.
Now that you are challenging my references (which I didn't have or need in order to make my inference), I decided to do some more research to see if I was indeed wrong in this case.
It didn't take long to find a source.

I recognize this was a very old post, but it goes to show that maybe my assumption was more correct than you thought.
As it turns out... I'm 1 for 1 in correctly predicting political affiliation based on the way someone talks about Veers.
Moreover, you didn't see the meme, whereas I did. Extreme, bad taste, whatever. Recall Kathy Griffin and the bloody head of Pres Trump? Or, was it Sen Cruz (maybe someone else) with a photoshopped image of Rep Pelosi being murdered in some manner? It was something akin to that.
Recall this adage: "If you're not a liberal when you're 20, you have no heart, and, if you're not a conservative when you're 40, you have no brain".
Oh, one last thing. I don't delete anything I post. I stand on what I've said, and defend or agree I was wrong, if addressed down the road (as you apparently have done with my posts, with gusto). You can't parse out much with @Birdstrike , because he deleted everything that I saw he had posted that wasn't exactly his subspecialty related. I still don't understand that.
I have never had a political sign in my yard, walked door to door for signatures, or gone to a political rally. And, as I've gotten older, I've moved more to the center.
That's all well and good, and a disruption to the thread, but, I wanted to disabuse you of this notion of your "gotcha".
