Is PayPal’s Peter Thiel leaving Silicon Valley for Los Angeles?

Maybe thinking about it. From Olivia Solon at the Guardian:

If the billionaire tech investor and noted libertarian Peter Thiel really does leave Silicon Valley for Los Angeles to escape what he views as an increasing intolerance for conservatives, the city’s growing community of conservatives will be there to welcome him.

Thiel’s decision to move to LA comes at a time when conservatives in the Bay Area are feeling increasingly squeezed by what they perceive to be liberal groupthink.

“Silicon Valley is a one-party state,” said Thiel at Stanford University last month. “That’s when you get in trouble politically in our society, when you’re all in one side.” More.

Reality check: The revolution that Silicon Valley birthed abolished locality. But the Valley does not seem to know it. They are still the Mean Girls where they think we are all forced to go to high school forever and ever.

But somehow, we fear they will have a secularist meltdown at that point and renew their attacks on traditional religion instead.
