In political groups I used to frequent, I did. It was not an often "thing", but it did happen.
But from 2016 > 2021 things have been reduced due to people's echo chambers.
But to nuke it all for 1% of your followers bailing?
I have done what you have done to be fair in return, but I frequented both right and left and centrist political spheres, and I found the level of toxicity was not good.
I actually found a ver 1-10% of followers and those that I communicated with of value.
I will tell you gaining a following and working through it requires constant love and maintenance and a thick skin. If one feels triggered, the right response is to walk away if you can, and if one can't control themselves to nuke it.
