BG/ MIL is generally very level headed, but FIL spouts off his mouth about anything and everything. His favorite topic, in general and especially recently, is politics.
Mil is on FB, FIL is not. She is, however, not very tech savvy. I don't believe she quite understands who can see what, much about privacy settings, etc... /BG
So, lately MIL has gotten more political with her FB posts. I've made several comments to DH about how she seems to be changing her views, etc... DH thought perhaps FIL is rubbing off on her. I thought perhaps she didn't understand that when she "likes" all these random posts that everyone else can see them. While we usually see them weekly, we haven't connected much in person lately. I've been ignoring these (sometimes offensive) posts up until now, but today I couldn't. (Shoul have known better.) Not for a topic that used to be important to her and is near and dear to DH's and me. My comment basically said the post " was disappointing, especially given her prior work in the area" that she was was now slamming. I don't want to name the topic, but its something generally supported by the public at large. (For example, education). My post was not like the scathing one you may have seen or heard if recently, and I don't think it was that attacking. Just expressing disappointment.
Here's the second place I should have known better. FIL has been making these posts on MIL's FB account. I want to explain to her that every time he posts these rants, it appears to all her friends and acquaintances as coming from her. Should I say something or get out now?
