51. My parents, and my wife's parents, are still the Social Justice Democrats they've always been.

Some might call them Social Justice Warriors.

If the U.S.A. turns into a Nazi Republican Fascist hell my parents and my siblings are all going to the re-education camps unless we've already skedaddled on out of here.

All my ancestors landed in America in the 19th century and ran straight into the wilderness because the places they came from had turned into shit holes intolerant of religious and political dissent.

Some of them were just one or two steps ahead of the law, abusive husbands or families, and rotten governments that meant to conscript them.

My wife has ancestors who were forced out of their lands into Mexico by the U.S. Army. Had they stayed it's likely they would have been killed. Their descendants returned as Mexican "immigrant" farm workers. One of my wife's grandmothers never forgot or forgave the injustice. She had her green card, she owned her own home here in California, she had a comfortable pension, but she refused citizenship many decades until her death, far beyond the point it became socially awkward for her family, and an extreme nuisance whenever she was returning to the U.S.A. after family visits to relatives in Mexico.
