HUD has a new directive planned to fundamentally transform where we live. To rehash what Skook had to say about this last week.
HUD has determined or more correctly, Obama has determined the reasons for the high rates of failure among urban minorities are hidden within the five arbitrary numbers of their Zip Codes; change those numbers or relocate minority youth and magic transpires. The urban conditioning fades away, and is replaced with the reality of living the American Dream.
He goes on to cite HUD’s report:
HUD’s rule clarifies and simplifies existing fair housing obligations for HUD grantees to analyze their fair housing landscape and set locally-determined fair housing priorities and goals through an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH). To aid communities in this work, HUD will provide open data to grantees and the public on patterns of integration and segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, disproportionate housing needs, and disparities in access to opportunity. This improved approach provides a better mechanism for HUD grantees to build fair housing goals into their existing community development and housing planning processes. In addition to providing data and maps, HUD will also provide technical assistance to aid grantees as they adopt this approach.
In other words, HUD will decide who gets to buy homes and where. Skook then captured what most conservatives seem to be thinking on the subject:
Now, you can play along with the smoke and mirrors and assume Obama is trying to create blacks who are white inside, especially girls, ”no child’s ZIP code should determine her opportunity to achieve.” Fundamentally altering America leaves a wide horizon of discretionary options; however, let’s be practical and accept the obvious – this plan is not designed to help disadvantaged minorities: its sole purpose is to get even with whitey and punish him for assuming he can escape the blight of inner-city America.
Read the whole thing. However, this is one of the rare times I find myself disagreeing with Skook. I do not believe that this move is to punish white Americans – this move is to punish conservative Americans. We’ve seen how this country has become fed up with the policies of the President Obama and the Radical Left – look no further than the results of the 2014 elections, which Draw and Strike! sums up for us. Note particularly the impact of Obama’s polices when his name is not on the ballot at the state legislature levels. What’s amazing is that this is happening despite the GOP’s insistence on being the party of stupid and its leadership’s condescending arrogance toward its base. Imagine what the political landscape would look like if Republicans would actually defend conservative principles…
That’s the beauty of the HUD directive. Like using various agencies such as the IRS, EPA, DOE, etc. to take control over local issues the president is setting the stage so that no matter how badly Democrats get rejected at the polls the outcomes will not matter since control will be placed under the control of leftist bureaucrats in Washington. Wait a minute, didn’t the tile of this post say this was an opportunity for conservatives? As a matter of fact it is!
It’s obvious that the intent of HUD is twofold – to punish predominantly conservative neighborhoods by changing the makeup of what these communities chose for themselves, but also to move Democrat voters out of deep blue voting districts to ones where their votes can start challenging the conservative strongholds. Does anyone think that this directive will be helping poor whites move into prosperous black/Hispanic neighborhoods? Or that we will see a push for more minorities in the various lily-white leftist enclaves around the big cities?
That’s where the beauty of this directive lies. Let HUD start imposing it’s will on localities. When conservatives who want to live in predominantly conservative neighborhoods start getting denied home loans or local banks start getting strong armed as to who they must offer mortgages let the lawsuits fly. Let’s see HUD show it’s methodology as to how they impose this policy. Since this policy is to be non-discriminatory let’s ensure that there is not a disparity based on neighborhood’s voting tendencies. When the disparities show up it will be time for hearings and subpoenas for memos and e-mails to find how such discrimination could have been advocated. We already know what is going to turn up – it’s time to push back and turn the radical left’s artillery around and start using it to fire down on them.
And in a show of reaching across the aisle I’ll offer some advice for members of HUD and the press. HUD reps: start planning now on how you’re going to delete all of your e-mails and have your backup servers incinerated. And for the press, this will be a big story when it breaks – you have plenty of time to prepare for how you’re going to bury it.
