The recent riot in Berkeley, California reminded the country that the liberal left doesn’t support the right to free speech when that speech is coming from a conservative.
Far too often, we hear stories about conservatives who are attacked both verbally and physically simply for their political beliefs.
It looks like that sad reality has forced conservatives in the Bay Area to meet in secret.
From CBS San Francisco:
Some East Bay conservatives say they live a secret life. They can never tell anyone what they really feel like in fear of their safety.
Robert Ward is coming out conservative, but in a place he says is risky for those who share his beliefs.
“If you witness what happened in Berkeley, actually they are so violent on top of it. I mean being a conservative in the Bay Area is like being a heretic,” says Ward. “You lead a double life. You can never tell your friends and co-workers.
That’s how far the relationship between the right and left has deteriorated in this country.
If you watched any of the video from the riot the other night then you can’t really blame these conservatives for feeling the way they do.
