Conservatives Move: Real Estate Firm For Conservatives Leaving "Liberal Hellholes"
Interesting profile from Vice News. Call them McMansions or what have you, but I think McKinney looks like a very nice place to live.

Are these people snowflakes looking for their safe space, or are they putting their money with their mouth is, putting the feces & needle-ridden streets of california in their rearview, and living the American dream?

It's said that those houses are going for around $400k. I've checked zillow, and there are only 4 listings in San Francisco between $300-$400k, and they are all 1 bedroom, ~500 square foot coffin apartments.

Even though I am someone who moved away from a city that's just a bit the right of Mao, I don't think I would like living in a place with the same characteristics, just now right leaning. I didn't like Prius' and bike lanes, and I can only only take so many bro-dozers and Kodiak tins.

I'm of the same mindset. I live amongst lib friends/neighbors and wouldn't think about moving due to political differences, etc. However, if my neck of the woods was to be eventually invaded by libs and my taxes increased then I'd consider moving.

I remember talking to people leaving California in the 80s because it wasn't a good place for kids. My parents left after the LA riots. Now, California would be losing people if not for immigrants.

Do people honestly need real-estate agents to tell them which places support Team Blue and which ones are for Team Red? Can’t you just get all that from basic media?

It's a marketing gimmick, chief.

There's something to be said about having a little variety in your surroundings.

While there's no way in hell I'd want to live among the screaming snowflakes in Portland or the Socialist regime in Frisco, I equally wouldn't want to live in the middle of a bunch of bible thumpers or country club Hoyti-Toytis.

Yeah, my neighborhood is a pretty good microcosm. You can tell the libs because the dad is either skinny fat or bearded and the mom is either ugly as sin or single. Trump won our precinct by 18 votes out of about 1,000.

RE: Conservatives Move: Real Estate Firm For Conservatives Leaving "Liberal Hellholes"
McKinney seems like a typical newer burb or bedroom community. It will be a majority GOP. As Kronke said the story is the RE Brokerage group that markets itself as serving Conservative buyers/sellers. Texas is growing population wise and conservatives move there from blue states so it is an interesting marketing technique, as political affiliation is not a protected class in real estate brokerage laws. Race, ethnicity, religion, disability etc., and other stuff is a protected class. As an example in some states it might illegal to have a real estate add "new construction with beautiful views" as "views" might somehow discriminate against the blind.

I'm certain that this is racist, sexist, islamophobic, and also homophobic and transphobic... but I can't place my finger on why.

I guess I'll wait till the far lefties come in and explain the talking points to me. I've been kicked off that mailing list, so I don't get the bullet point summaries anymore.
