I'd be interested in reading other accounts of this kind of 'discrimination' happening (or not happening) from other lefties, as well as different methods of deflecting/dealing with this.

Embrace the "discrimination". If you're not able to defend your views publicly, then keep them to yourself. There's nothing that entitles you to not
be "discriminated" against for your views, people don't have a right to conceit. The underlying point is that being a Leftist isn't some kind of innate identity which we demand others tolerate. We shouldn't want
to be leftists (as this entails a specific political identity confined by definite conditions), we should want to change the world.
