    Really?

    Your personal experience doesn't mirror that, does it?

    Mine certainly doesn't. I've lived and worked in the South Bay for more than 30 years (although I also lived here off & on during the 70's).

    While I've known a lot of folks who classified themselves as liberals, I've known a LOT of conservatives (still do), and none of them have ever thought to "hide" themselves or their philosophies. Even less so now, if anything.

    Something odd going on in the East Bay?

    If he was truly in fear for his safety should he be revealed, why would he invite the media to his meeting? Talk about the fox in the henhouse.

    More likely, he is a useful idiot helping to confirm for bay area libs that conservatives are just paranoid lunatics.

    Edit: anyone remember the Philadelphia shooting range owner who invited the NYT theater critic* to his shop, only to have him quoted in a way that made him seem anti-2A?

    *who described his experience in a very...ahem...manly fashion. I believe he had PTSD afterwards.

    It's tough being different in a world of the opposite. Being a conservative in the Bay area, is kinda like being a liberal in ANY state in the midwest.

    Depends where you are in those states. While Trump won Ohio by 8 points, Clinton won Cuyahoga County (Clevelend) by 35 points. I'm sure there are plenty of conservative enclaves in the Bay Area.

    Uh huh. And being a Christian in Syria is just like being a Muslim in NYC, right?
