For Barack Hussein’s next disappearing act, watch as America’s affluent communities disappear in the name of “diversity.” In a bizarre new policy initiative cloaked in the politically correct language of “disparate impact,” King Hussein is intent upon moving the projects into affluent neighborhoods. No longer will the “disadvantaged” have to make it to the NBA to afford to live in America’s finest communities. At the directive of Barrack Hussein, “moving on up” has become the newest mission of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, forcing diversity down the throats of the residents of those affluent communities.
Disparate impact (from Wikipedia): In United Statesanti-discrimination law, the theory of disparate impact holds that practices in employment, housing, or other areas may be considered discriminatory and illegal if they have a disproportionate “adverse impact” on persons in a protected class.
What form will the new policy initiative take when implemented? One can only guess. Imagine the possibilities. Imminent Domain is an authoritarian workhorse that could be used to dedicate portions of affluent neighborhoods as low income housing areas. Or, houses in affluent neighborhoods could be purchased by the federal government and rented (rent free) to Section 8 recipients. One thing is certain – federal funds will be withheld from those communities not willing to play the game. Any developer wishing to obtain a permit to develop a piece of property for upscale housing may be forced, in order to gain approval for his or her plan, to dedicate a certain percentage of the development to low income housing (this monster is already alive and well in some localities).
And then there is the ulterior motive. With King Hussein you can never accept that his motives are transparent. They almost never are. Could it be that this is a simple House redistricting plan? It would certainly work. The Democrat Party already owns America’s urban areas to such an overwhelming degree that a significant percentage of those voters are wasted. Rather than redrawing the districting lines to gain more Democrat seats, why not move those wasted voters into purple districts to swing the district to the left side of the aisle? Voila! Democrat House majority!
This is another Obomb about to blow up in the faces of hard-working American taxpayers. It is, without question, going to further depreciate American real estate, and it will certainly increase the growing resentment between the classes (cornerstone of the progressive/Marxist Cloward-Piven theory).
Whatever else this is, Mom and Pop America, it is clearly another example of your hard-earned tax dollars being used by Washington parasites to force more tyranny down your throats. It is not enough that you pay the taxes that provide the food and shelter for a large segment of the Democrat voter base. Now your tax dollars are going to be used to force you to accept low income familes (read fatherless) living in your neighborhood. To believe that the hood-dwellers will come but their historical problems (crime, drugs, etc.) will somehow be left behind is naive, to be kind. How stupid are we for paying taxes, right?
Excerpted from The Hill:
The Obama administration is moving forward with regulations designed to help diversify America’s wealthier neighborhoods, drawing fire from critics who decry the proposal as executive overreach in search of an “unrealistic utopia.”
A final Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rule due out this month is aimed at ending decades of deep-rooted segregation around the country.
The regulations would use grant money as an incentive for communities to build affordable housing in more affluent areas while also taking steps to upgrade poorer areas with better schools, parks, libraries, grocery stores and transportation routes as part of a gentrification of those communities.
“HUD is working with communities across the country to fulfill the promise of equal opportunity for all,” a HUD spokeswoman said. “The proposed policy seeks to break down barriers to access to opportunity in communities supported by HUD funds.”
HUD says it is obligated to take the action under the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which prohibited direct and intentional housing discrimination, such as a real estate agent not showing a home in a wealthy neighborhood to a black family or a bank not providing a loan based on someone’s race.
The agency is also looking to root out more subtle forms of discrimination that take shape in local government policies that unintentionally harm minority communities, known as “disparate impact.”
