There are people who believe conservative science fiction and fantasy have been unfairly slighted in the World Science Fiction Society awards (aka the Hugos.) As some of you know, this year two groups have tried to remedy the problem they see.

Perhaps there should be a list of older sf which Sad Puppies, Mad Puppies, and those inclined to agree with them might find objectionable.
Here is a start:

Robert A. Heinlein, Revolt in 2100. A strongly Christian US government is overthrown, with the author's obvious approval.
Robert A. Heinlein, The Puppet Masters. The future setting has term marriages.
Robert A. Heinlein, "Delilah and the Space Rigger." Blatant feminism.

H. G. Wells, The Time Machine. In the far future, descendants of the upper classes are exploited by the dictatorship of the proletariat. (Marxists might also find this novel objectionable.)

Harry Turtledove, Guns of the South. A victorious Confederate government deprives many citizens of their property.
