LOL so a company I've never heard of is ragequitting my city because of a protest that didn't impact them in any way. But for whoever their employees are, screw you, move or be replaced! "Be free" my foot.

He didn't state it was the protest. He stated that it's the general direction things are headed in these cities. The protest was merely one example indicating where things are heading.

The fact that a sibling comment is using a derogatory term for people practicing their faith is testament to the increasing intolerance. I'm atheist myself, but many people I know in Seattle and SF have no problem talking about Christians in ways that would never talk about someone who is Jewish or Muslim. Bigotry comes in all flavors, even the bigotry you agree with.

Having lived in the deep South, I find Seattle and San Francisco to be as intolerant as the deep South. These places just differ in who is the recipient of their bigotry.
