“HUD has cut off $17 million in funding to Westchester for refusing to sue local municipalities to modify zoning ordinances to accommodate more subsidized housing. HUD claims the ordinances, which like almost every locality in America, set limits on building density, are racially “exclusionary.”
“HUD has said that even quarter-acre (lot) single-family zoning, in their view, may very well be discriminatory and perpetuate ‘segregation,'” Astorino said. “And (it) must be looked at, and even maybe attacked.”
So you know how your town tries to keep multi-family dwellings to a minimum so that it can manage crime, traffic, school enrollment, drainage, sewerage load and water usage? Well, guess what? HUD says those rules be RAYCISS because it makes it harder to install firetrap Section 8 housing in your Whitopia.
“Under the Obama administration, housing officials no longer limit their view of housing discrimination to overt acts such as landlords and Realtors steering minorities away from predominantly white areas. They now consider any race-neutral policy that has the “effect” of creating “disparate access” for minorities to good jobs, schools and other suburban “assets” to be a racist “barrier.”
Now, far from thinking this is a bad thing, I think this kind of thing is absolutely fantastic. FANTASTIC. Why, you ask? Why do I cheer for HUD?
Because liberals hide in the suburbs in all-White enclaves and talk about how racist America is and how stupid Rednecks are while waxing their Volvos without a negro in sight. They never get the true benefit of diversity. Their daughters walk to school unaccosted. Their sons only experience violence in Tae Kwon Do class. Their wives are only told how good they look by strangers when they shop at Nordstrom.
But if HUD has its way, there won’t be any limousine liberals left, because there won’t be a limousine with a gas tank big enough to drive them away from LaQuonda and her nine kids. In fact, HUD will make sure there’s an apartment complex full of them looking out for the neighbors’ houses when they go on vacation.
And if there is a sure-fire cure for liberalism, it’s proximity to the misbehavior of the groups liberals idealize so easily when they aren’t actually around.
Maybe HUD can build a few Mosques in the suburbs while they’re at it. Big ones.
