Liberal effetes getting a taste of their own medicine. Couldn’t happen to a better group of hypocrites.

The small town of East Hampton has gained a reputation as the playground for New York’s well-heeled elite, a place to spend the idle summer months in their million-dollar homes.
But some of its wealthy residents are upset at an influx of less well-heeled workers who they say are lowering the quality of life and diminishing the appearance of the quaint Long Island town.
A campaign group is focusing on the Springs area of East Hampton, dubbing itself ‘Unoccupy Springs’ and calling for an end to multiple families of low-wage workers living under one roof.
……Carol Saxe Buda, the creator of group Unoccupy Springs, told the New York Times that regardless of race, crowding in homes is bad for business, adding that multiple families’ children all living under one roof caused an imbalance in taxes.
Ms Buda said in a recent town hall meeting that the people using single-family dwellings for multiple families were not committing ‘victimless crimes.’
……The housing code states that up to four unrelated people or one family can occupy a single-family dwelling.
Resident Frank Weinberg, who is also a member of Unoccupy Springs added: ‘Imagine yourselves living next to a house with 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 cars and debris strewn about the property – neglected and blighted.
‘And imagine that your taxes are going up every year, significantly, while your property value is going down,’ the East Hampton Star reported.
Gee Frank, I know how you feel. I live in an economically depressed Democratic stronghold in North Central Ohio. My property taxes have gone up while my property value has gone down. Sucks to have the same problems as the ‘flyover states’ eh, Frank?
You think you got it tough, Hampton? Just be glad you’re not on the southern border like Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Looks like they’ve decided to migrate to your neighborhood, too.
……the Hispanic population has tripled in the past decade, and the Hamptons’ traditional residents are making waves about their new neighbours.
The Times notes that most immigrants live on the southern part of East Hampton, which is less expensive but also farther away from the ocean.
The area, called Springs, is home to modest houses –some of which, residents said – are over-crowded with multiple families and children.
The ‘Unoccupy Springs’ website says the movement was founded by concerned citizens who want to ‘improve our quality of life’ and are ‘concerned about enforcement of single family zoning code provisions’ and ‘very burdensome school taxes.’
The website describes Springs as a ‘dumping ground for the town’s low-end multiple housing.’
Welcome to the world of unwelcome encroachment, Hamptons. Just wait until Holder gets wind of your ‘Unoccupy Springs’; he’ll sue you like he did Arizona.
