a mayor in southern california,
who happens to be republican of all things,
wants to make his city great again.

an f-bi sent me the story via the huffington post…
One Republican mayor in California has a plan to make his desert city great again: Bring in more Asian and gay people.
In a recently published interview with Vice magazine, Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris said that increasing the Asian population and “the gays,” as he called members of the LGBTQ community, can do a lot of good for a city like Lancaster, which, as Vice pointed out, is now known for its neo-Nazis and meth labs.
“Good things happen when you’re able to increase your Asian population to a certain threshold: Crime rates go down, education levels go up,” Parris told Vice. “Interestingly, the same thing happens with the gays. That’s why I put the new performing arts center right downtown.”
Parris, who’s been described by friends as a “staunch, conservative, Republican, no bull kind of guy,” according to a 2009 Los Angeles Times profile, is no stranger to questionable actions or comments.
The mayor once played recordings of birds chirping on speakers along a city boulevard for five hours a day for 10 months because he believed the sounds would calm residents and reduce crime, according to The Wall Street Journal. In 2014, he was criticized for calling a black City Council candidate a “gang candidate” who would turn Lancaster into a “magnet for street gangs.”
