From this thread and this thread on r/ssc; feel free to keep making suggestions in the comment thread here. I’ve tried to sort them into categories by political opinions; feel free to correct me if I have a miscategorization. Please note that I included every name that was nominated by a person who did not say they agreed with the nominated person or stan for the Cultural Revolution in the same comment; presence on this list does not mean that I approve of a person or even know who they are. (Decisions about whether the person said they agreed with the nominated person are made by me, and are final.)
