How the Getty Dynasty Fueled Gavin Newsom’s Rise and Shapes his LGBT Agenda – William Underwood 11/27/23


Target, fearing a consumer boycott last May like the one that cratered Bud Light’s sales after it embraced a transgender pitchwoman who is really a man, pulled from store shelves its Pride collection items like female swimsuits with “tuck-friendly construction” and “extra crotch coverage” designed for male genitalia.

California Governor Gavin Newsom pounced quickly, ridiculing what appeared to be a prudent move to protect company stockholders.

The Target CEO’s “selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage,” Newsom tweeted sarcastically on May 23. “Wake up America. This doesn’t stop here. You’re black? You’re Asian? You’re Jewish? You’re a woman? You’re next.”

Newsom returned to the platform now known as X on May 31, taking aim more squarely at opponents of the woke blitzkrieg of the past few years.

He warned of a “full-throated purge effort” by far-right forces “on a boycott binge and cancel crusade, trying to eliminate the existence of minority communities. Burning Flags. Banning Books. … We must continue to call out hate when we see it, as they keep trying to normalize it.”

The rhetorical inversion of reality was classic Gavin Newsom, a White House aspirant always eager to raise his national profile.

The social media posts implied that “minority communities” should monolithically support his hardcore progressive agenda and ignored the fact that “cancel culture” emanates overwhelmingly from the left. LGBT proponents, meanwhile, are the ones pushing to normalize at warp speed radical views of gender and sexuality considered by a global majority to be deviant and well outside the mainstream.

One reason why Newsom has long embraced “LGBTQ+” (previously with fewer letters and no plus sign) as his signature political cause is his deep ties to the family of the late American oil billionaire, J. Paul Getty. The Gettys have bankrolled Newsom’s business ventures as well as his rapid rise in public office that has brought him to the cusp of a U.S. presidential run.

The Ariadne Getty branch of the family vigorously promotes LGBT issues from Los Angeles and at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Their activities help to explain why the transgender craze in particular has overrun American society and co-opted the business strategies of corporate elites.
