Local apparatchiks are doing what communists always do - they are making lists of the enemies of communism so, when they are finally let off the chain, they know who to target.
Keep your own lists. Know who the enemy is before things get sporty.
I couldn't agree more. Take careful note of every "woke" body around you and all their "woke" members - school boards, administrative bodies, charities, anyone and everyone who administers official and/or unofficial policies that affect society. If they can keep records on you, because they consider your differing views to be a threat, you can do exactly the same to them. To quote an old idiom, "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander".
This will be a useful check and balance on official overreach, and a worthy application of the Golden Rule. If they know you're "doing unto them what they're doing unto you", it should give them pause before they use their records to try to harm or restrict you, because they'll know that retaliation will be forthcoming.
