It seems like there’s extreme liberals have driven a lot of people right..... anyone else? Of course this is entirely anecdotal

- Apple / Eng MarijuanaNo, people are just more willing to speak out now that Trump is in power
- Wikimedia n.o.nymousLiterally every republican candidate has been equated to Hitler. Unironically. Multiple times. Bush, McCain, Romney, all of them. So at least now republicans got somebody who can do something - not everything but at least something - and dish out as much as he takes in.Jul 14 2
- @weeeeee, Umm yes. It’s happening because the masses are discontent with the effects of globalization and widening gap between rich and poor.
So, media corporations and politicians, rather than pointing the blame at those pulling the strings (i.e. themselves), find a common ground in pitting people against brown immigrants i.e. the Other.
They run on a platform of “the immugrunts are tukin ur jawwwbs” and the masses are easy to brainwash when all media corporations are saying the same thing.
And then you have dumbasses like the Democratic Party which backs obvious losers like this person who called said masses a “basket of deplorables.” Gee, they’ll definitely vote for you now.
But, two wrongs don’t make a right. It’s harder to find the truth and be nuanced rather than submit to your Lord God the Trump, as most of you responding to me have done.
- Bronto Software / Sales w204c63Everyone is getting tired of both sides bullshit. Far left is too soft/idealistic, far right is literally crazy/delusional victim complexes
- Apple ST8Pr1d3moreIf so, that would be great. The left has gotten so extreme I wouldn’t be surprised. All of my moderate Democrat friends vote Republican (or independent) now. Shit is crazy if Pelosi has to be the voice of reason in the Democrat Party
- Moderate Democratic = 00s-era Clinton = Pro-war, anti-gay marriage until it was inconvenient, etc.
The extreme of the left is affording people basic rights commonplace in the rest of the civilized world, which used to be easily accessible to Americans, namely healthcare and education. Oh, and environmental concern.
- Much like Steve Jobs, Donald Trump will be remembered as an awful human being, but a godsend leader in times when the American culture is under a large-scale attack from deranged sociopaths and anarchists from the left. The GOP actually has nobody else who could effectively oppose ther likes of AOC - it's an old machine evolved to oppose the likes of Pelosi.
- No...no it won’t. Not according to virtually all scientists. We will not be fine unless we stop fucking the air with countless pollutants.
I mean, didn’t you study this shit in high school physics? Gamma rays coming from the sun, ozone layer protecting us from them, aurora borealis and all that shit?
- Google wkkjyThe world, not just tech; is fed up with political correctness. And that can be seen as being "republican". What does being republican evwn mean? If a person stays where he is but if the democrats move far left, does it make the person republican?
- I think more or less Trump and his legacy will be judged over the 2020 Election. If Trump loses & Dems don’t screw up badly 2020-24 (as some worry about far left socialism), Trump will be underrated, like way below average or one of the worst.
If Trump wins & goes through a stable second term 2020-24 w/o major recession & makes some reconciliations, he will be overrated, which means probably remembered as a very great one
- Yes, but also because whites in flyover states became poorer under Obama.
And the centrist Democrats didn’t do shit about it — in fact alienated them further by calling them a “basket of deplorables” and literally conspiring to make Hillary the nominee.
Lots of poor angry whites + liberals accusing them of being privileged + Fox News and CNN making billions pitting them off each other = More division.
- No? People just want to be on the side of normalcy and simple common sense. Have your non binary gender conversations, but don’t force me to do something because you feel a certain way.
Let’s help those less fortunate, but don’t do it by telling them “vote for me and stop working, here’s your 1k”.
People don’t side with people saying shit for votes. People side with people for seeing results. Whoever gives them.
- Lol none of you even know that a liberal and a leftist are totally different things. For a bunch of “smart” guys you all are ignorant af
- I think Blind in general is more accepting of Trump than it was on Election Day, for sure. At least according to the sporadic polls.

- You’re describing the past, and we’re talking about the new trends on the March. Course it’s not gonna show up and flipping district yet. But it’s very telling that all these classic liberal tech workers like you describe are turning. Imagine what’s happening elsewhere across the country. It’s fascinating to say the least
- Microsoft A!I don't think they are increasing in quantity, I think they are just getting louder since now it seems we gotta accept political incorrectness as the new normal
- Yes. Tech workers almost always lean more right/conservative/classical liberal. I've worked in 5 different companies and the majority of the people leaned right. Engineering in general. Tech company tangent departments like marketing, product, business, what have you, may lean democrat but they seem more socially liberal and even then it is more about attracting the business of rich white gay men. I remember Engineering departments were very conservative when I was in college. You wouldn't need special drives to make tech "inclusive" if it didn't lean right/ conservative.Jul 14 0
- I think most tech folks in the Bay Area leaned towards Hillary, who is basically right-wing and classic liberal, as you describe. Pro-war, anti-gay marriage until it was convenient, etc.
But it really depends on the era and location, tier of company, and average age of employees.
These days it’s not really an option to be a modern-day conservative (ie Trump) unless you’re white. The alternative would be, like, being racist against yourself or something. (Which a minority of brown people are, but a small minority for sure.)
- Majority of the tech workers in Atlanta area companies I worked for voted for Trump even the ones younger than 30. Many give the lip service of being woke bros, but in the end , deep down you know they voted for Trump and support his immigration policies even. I agree that Hillary is definitely more classical liberal/conservative. I wouldn't call Trump conservative though, just a hateful inept bigot. The only people shocked by Trump's election were sheltered white upper middle class leftists who NEVER face racism and continue to live in their leftist bubbles.
- True, Trump isn’t a classical conservative. Nothing conservative about a $1 trillion budget deficit.
Yet all the Republican politicians are groveling at his feet because he has the support of most poor whites and many middle and upper-class whites too. With the exception of Justin Amash, until he quit the party on July 4, lol.
- New AntiPatternEVERYONE is getting more anti-neo-globalism...because suckers finally realized the scam is on them.
