Obama has been devoting his second term in office to “diversifying” wealthy American suburbs with some controversial new regulations. This, week he moved forward with yet another plan in the hopes of reaching his goal.
Back in 2013, Obama passed regulations to force suburban neighborhoods with no record of housing discrimination to build more public housing designed to target minorities. In his book Spreading The Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing The Suburbs To Pay For the Cites, Stanley Kurtz argued that this is all part of Obama’s socialist plan to distribute wealth from the suburbs to inner cities:
The new HUD rule is really about changing the way Americans live. It is part of a broader suite of initiatives designed to block suburban development, press Americans into hyper-dense cities, and force us out of our cars. Government-mandated ethnic and racial diversification plays a role in this scheme, yet the broader goal is forced “economic integration.”
The ultimate vision is to make all neighborhoods more or less alike, turning traditional cities into ultra-dense Manhattans, while making suburbs look more like cities do now. In this centrally-planned utopia, steadily increasing numbers will live cheek-by-jowl in “stack and pack” high-rises close to public transportation, while automobiles fall into relative disuse.
This week, Obama moved forward with regulations designed specifically to diversify the wealthy communities of America.
The regulations, which the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are putting out this month, are set to use grant money as an incentive for communities to build affordable housing in affluent areas. It would also take steps to upgrade poor communities with better schools, parks, libraries, grocery stores and transportation routes as part of a greater gentrification process.
“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.”
Critics have slammed the proposal as an “unrealistic utopia,” but that hasn’t stopped Obama and his minions from moving forward with it.
