The Queer State of California

News from the Left Coast:

The Palm Springs, Calif., City Council now has transgender and bisexual members — and is entirely LGBT or queer.
Lisa Middleton made history as the first openly trans candidate elected to a nonjudicial office in California (Victoria Kolakowski was elected an Alameda County Superior Court judge in 2010). She and Christy Holstege, a bi woman, won the two open seats on the City Council in a field of six candidates in Tuesday’s election. Their election means that the desert city’s council is 100 percent LGBT or queer, according to Equality California, with representation from across the spectrum of those identities.

This consolidation of LGBT power was celebrated by Equality California and the Victory Fund. The latter group spent more than $600 million during the 2012 election campaign. In politics, a highly organized (and well-funded) minority can always defeat the disorganized majority. This is why the preferences of lobbyists matter more in Washington than do the interests of average Americans. The success of the LGBT lobby in gaining complete control of Palm Springs government demonstrates this, and also demonstrates that demographics is destiny.

The media age of the population of Palm Springs is 51, substantially older than the U.S. median age of 37. Why is this? Well, Palm Springs attracts a lot of retirees, and has very few children. Those under age 15 are only 11% of Palm Springs residents, whereas nearly 20% of the U.S. population is under 15. If the residents of Palm Springs are having very few children, and the elderly residents don’t work, where will they find the workforce to provide all the services necessary to maintain this affluent community of nearly 50,000? Oh, yes — immigrants. Twenty-five percent of Palm Springs residents are Hispanic, and another 5 percent are Asian. Who do you think will be working behind the counter at the Petsmart store in Palm Springs when the rich white gay people go shopping for Christmas gifts for their cats? Who collects their garbage and hauls it to the landfill? What is the ethnicity of the housekeeping staff at the Palm Springs hospital where the white old folks go when they’re sick?

There is an obvious correlation between support for “gay rights” and advocacy of an open-borders immigration policy. Rich white liberals (gay or otherwise) tend to have few children if any, and are in favor of importing brown people to work in menial service jobs. The lesbian sociology professor flatters herself that she is supporting “diversity” as she buys her $3 Starbucks latte from the Salvadoran barista.

The Kakistocracy points out that white liberals often ride to power on brown horses, so to speak. Yet this is always a transient phenomenon, as eventually the riders will be tossed from their saddles. Herb Stein famously observed, “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop,” and the kind of demographic trend exemplified by the election of an all-LGBT city council in Palm Springs is ultimately unsustainable.
