Skip to comments.Interesting article on conservatives in Silicon Valley
Posted on 09/05/2017 8:40:42 AM PDT by DeweyCA
There's an interesting article with interviews of conservatives at Google and other Silicon Valley companies about how they have to keep quiet and are fearful of losing their jobs. It is amazing how Libs preach tolerance, but don't practice what they preach. Liberalism really is their religion. They are in love with themselves and their own feeling of self-sufficiency. The article is at Bloomberg, which doesn't allow any FreeRepublic postings. The URL is https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-05/the-lonely-lives-of-silicon-valley-conservatives.
Btw, this is my first vanity post, so I hope that I did it okay.
Really sad the way libs are able to suppress opposing thoughts, especially in certain industries. Everybody thinks about entertainment, journalism and academia, but this article brings up another good example. Thanks for sharing!
You posted a synopsis with a link which I dont think qualifies as a vanity post. It also does not appear to be a blog pimp. Thanks for the link.
I hear the same thing from my Hollywood buddies. One friend, a producer who worked with Spielberg at SKG, is almost ill attending any meeting with any of these people because they just start going off on “fascist” Trump, etc.
They all tell me they feel like they are in Britain during the bombing.
All 2 of them? Probably a lot of the silly cone valley ‘bigs’ were at burning man all last week.
If they are afraid of losing their jobs, they should secure another job and then let it rip.
I’m one of them, a teacher at a liberal community college no less. I refuse to attend the Snowflake centered activities(so far not mandatory), but I do keep my mouth shut. I would be charged with a hate crime should I decide to tell folks how I really feel. I have a couple of conservative faculty friends. We meet in the catacombs to freely speak our mind.
” how they have to keep quiet and are fearful of losing their jobs”
I’ve lived it. My perception is that the California strain of conservatism, libertarian in bent, had/has a bias against traditional morality. It’s regarded as backward, irrational, and counter-productive. But morality abhors a vacuum, and leftist PC virtue signaling has been sucked in to fill it.
As windy as I heard it was out there half of the attendees will probably have COPD or silicosis in 5 years.
Now that I think of it, maybe we should start some trendy annual lib pilgrimage event at the base of a really active volcano or a low spot in Mammoth cauldera... lol
To all Conservatives and Libertarians:
The Progressive/Liberal/Marxist “diversity” agenda is not about any true sense of “diversity”, quite the opposite. It is about forming a mono-culture where there is no diversity of views, values, traditions or anything else - just one giant social group think.
Well, after observing some of the vehicles entering town yesterday, I’d say they’re bringing a lot of the playa into town with them. Which is the usual case.
Seems the article attempting to convince the SF, San Jose area are full of conservatives.
And why would a conservative in his right mind put up with leftist life, day in and day out, in that leftist s**t hole? Profits regardless of consequences? Compromise over conservatism?
Lets face it, the left are not just annoying, they’re the enemy of freedom and America. A pay check is worth all that?
Reminiscent of the underground seminary, the Finkenwalde, that Bonhoeffer taught church leaders during German oppression.
HR in Silicon Valley is trying to cover all of this up.
The LAST thing they want is for this to get MSM coverage.
The problem is in SV, they only have uber-liberal press.
“And why would a conservative in his right mind put up with leftist life, day in and day out, in that leftist s**t hole?”
I was born here when it was just perfect.
My parents and brother live here.
When my parents pass I will cash out and leave.
Either eastern Oregon or Idaho, somewhere in the banana belt.
The quality of life in Silicon Valley has been in free-fall for the last 10 years.
I don’t think that’s the point of the article, it refers to “lonely” conservatives, but even so, as someone who grew up in the Silicon Valley, it wasn’t a particularly liberal area just a generation ago, and lots of people, including myself, live where they live mostly because it’s where they grew up, with family, friends, favorite haunts, etc.
No kidding. You could say the same the entire state decades ago. And not too many years ago Reagan was Governor!
Now San Jose, SF, Berkeley et al are the armpit of leftist California. The entire region is jammed with leftist freaks of every description.
Indeed, which is why I really cannot understand the Paul Ryan Jeff Flake types. Liberals did not convert the population of California to their cause; they simply imported a new population. The same will happen nationwide if we let it, and their prior stance on illegal immigration will not protect them when the entire GOP is outlawed as a “hate group”. It’s just abject suicidal-level stupidity.
