Source: raw story

Fundraisers in California are incredibly lucrative for the president, as the state is home to a number of tech and entertainment millionaires. But its heavily liberal lean has many of his donors scared of social consequences for their support — and according to Politico, that fear is leading the Trump campaign to cloak these events in secrecy.

Four events are planned early this week, including two events in Beverly Hills, one in Silicon Valley, and one in San Diego. Thousands of GOP donors, bundlers, and state party officials are looking to participate — but security concerns persist.

“Attendees at Tuesday’s event are not being provided with the address of the actual lunch — they are being told to meet at a shuttle location, sources said,” according to Politico’s Carla Marinucci. “The concern comes after news of the Hollywood-area fundraiser sparked controversy when actors Debra Messing and Eric McCormack called for outing attendees. Demonstrators have been trying to ferret out locations of the fundraisers, promising to stage protests and appearances by the giant ‘baby Trump’ balloon.”...................................................

4. GOOD. Social shame is important!

This is why rightwing whiners scream about civility. Because they are afraid of shame. They can’t handle the consequences of their actions.

Publicize all the donor names. Shame them.

Boycott their industries, don’t go to their movies, let them know they do not represent civil, decent society.

11. They should be shamed. The fact that they embrace this racist POS

makes them racist by proxy. The Trump presidency radiates out from the racism at its center..

20. Yes, we find out eventually, but the Trumpies do NOT want any optics of Protests right now.

I think that was one of the main points of the article.

30. What are their names?

I wonder who they are
The men who really run this land
And I wonder why they run it
With such a thoughtless hand
What are their names
And on what streets do they live
I'd like to ride right over
This afternoon and give
Them a piece of my mind
About peace for mankind
Peace is not an awful lot to ask

— David Crosby
