Trump supporters boycott Meetup after company creates #Resist groups, makes its (extremist) politics known

Meetup, the site that helps people organize get-togethers like hiking trips and cooking classes, is taking a very solid political stance in the face of the new administration’s policies here in the U.S. – a move that has angered Trump supporters, who are deleting their accounts and calling for a boycott. While Meetup’s platform is open to anyone on both sides of the political spectrum, the previously apolitical company has taken upon itself to seed the site with 1,000 #Resist meetup groups, and has emailed its 30 million members to alert them of that fact.

In the email, the company says that the site will always welcome people with different beliefs, but after Trump’s executive order aimed at blocking people “on the basis of nationality and religion,(likelihood of breeding terrorists - Fixed that for you.) it reads, Meetup says it felt a duty to spark more civic participation.

The message states there are now 1,000 #Resist groups on the site, which are meant to serve as local hubs for those who want to take action on behalf of “democracy, equality, human rights, social justice, and sustainability.”

    I do believe Trump is waiting for them to do something REALLY WRONG... in other words, he is giving them the rope to hang themselves, before the people of the US demand action be taken by these rioting snowflakes and Bolshevik babies. They will not stop until they are stopped, that is the Talmudic way of war.

  2. Our Meetup group got the #Resist notice and we decided that we were done with them. We closed our group down and closed the Meetup page. We will still continue our "club" for lack of a better word but we're connecting privately now.
