It Begins: Obama To Force Integration Into Suburban Neighborhoods (Video)

Stanley Kurtz warned us of on election night 2012 that regardless of Obama’s narrow victory, he would aggressively move forward with his radical transformative agenda.

The fact that Obama has only very narrowly secured reelection–unusual, since reelected presidents normally expand their initial electoral margins–might seem to contradict this high-conflict scenario. You can certainly argue that a barely-reelected president would be smart to pull in his horns and govern from the middle. Yet that’s not who Barack Obama is, and it’s certainly not the premise upon which he ran his campaign. Obama took the intentionally risky path of alienating half the country with an in-your-face negative campaign because he believed that demographics now allow him to cobble together a leftist majority in support of transformative change. Whether that demographic vision is valid or not, Obama and his advisors believe that it is, and so will govern with relative disregard for opposition, however vocal.

We were also warned by Kurtz in 2012 that in his 2nd term,  Obama would reveal his hostility toward the middle-class lifestyle and suburbia, and his preference for the urban underclass.

When Obama funded projects through the Woods Fund in Chicago, he gave economic support to his old community-organizer buddies and their new regionalist projects whose purpose, Kurtz writes, “was to run a class warfare campaign of agitation designed to expose the suburban American dream as a product of racism and greed.” Then through tax redistribution, new urban growth boundaries, and low-income housing quotas, the suburbs would in reality cease to exist.

The Community Organizer in Chief is now poised to move  beyond prosecuting discriminatory housing practices to punishing state and local officials if areas they’re responsible for integrating do not have enough minorities according (to the Regime.)

( – To ensure that “every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,” HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.

The goal is to help communities understand “fair housing barriers” and “establish clear goals” for “improving integrated living patterns and overcoming historic patterns of segregation.”

“This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of – where they have a fair shot at reaching their full potential in life,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

“For the first time ever,” Donovan added, “HUD will provide data for every neighborhood in the country, detailing the access African American, Latino, Asian, and other communities have to local assets, including schools, jobs, transportation, and other important neighborhood resources that can play a role in helping people move into the middle class.”

According to HUD, long-term solutions include “helping people gain access to different neighborhoods and channeling investments into under-served areas.” The mapping tool may guide development and zoning decisions, for example.

In a July 16 speech to the NAACP, Donovan said the American Dream still isn’t within equal reach of all communities. He lamented the lack of diversity in America’s boardrooms, schools, and the nation’s “strongest neighborhoods.”


Via WHD, here’s some additional reporting from Stirewalt on the Fox website.

The old way was to punish exclusion. The new way is to punish lack of inclusion.

The punishment is also different. Rather than fines and prosecutions for those who sought to keep minorities out, the new penalty would be a withholding of federal funds from local and state government agencies dependent on HUD grants if they fail to push greater diversity. The way those agencies interact with developers, realtors, homeowners associations and others would need to reflect the federal push for diversity.

The report card comes in the form of the new maps, which use Census data to score communities on their racial and ethnic concentrations, as well as income and community services

Wow. Officials will now be trying to protect themselves from losing out on federal funding by moving minorities into neighborhoods WHETHER THEY WANT TO BE THERE OR NOT. And – talk about unintended consequences – whether they can afford to be there or not. Unless – yes, my crystal ball, please – the government decides that minorities should be offered a special price for a home.

Make. it. stop.

  1. And where did HUD get the legal authority to enlarge the legislation to produce those “new regulations”? Routinely now, executive branch folks write new laws (but don’t call them that) or ignore existing laws (and don’t call that by its true name either) without a single shred of legal authority to do so. Congress makes laws; executive branch executes them. Not enough Congress-critters have even enough nerve or will or sense or … sigh … to oppose the erosion of their own lawful authority. Glad I’m middle-aged and won’t be around to see most of the consequences of all this spineless, sniveling idiocy.


  2. Soooo, what if I get a real hankerin’ fer one of those Beverly Hills gated communities? Oh wait, I’m not the right color. I’ll just have to do it the old fashioned way: hard work, followed by more hard work.


  3. That “special price for a new home” thing? Yeah, it’s *the law* here in New Jersey. No new development can proceed unless a specific percentage of units are set aside for “low income housing.” The developer is taxed to pay for the subsidies needed to ensure a “low income” person lives in those units for the next 25 years. This is known as the Fair Share Affordable Housing Mandate, and it’s enforced by our state supreme court.


  4. HUD has been after Westchester County New York for decades [I kid you not] despite and no matter what reforms they have put into place and there have been many under both dimoCrap & repubic administrations . . . . they have never been satisfied. They have destroyed many neighborhoods throughout County over the years and are continuing to make demands as recently as only a few weeks ago. Perhaps when they succeed in getting “projects” built in Scarsdale [one of the richest communities in the entire Country] maybe they’ll be satisfied. Maybe?


  5. All this social engineering does is destroy neighborhoods. Why haven’t they figured this out, yet? If they want to improve the lives of the underclass, they need to focus on changing the destructive entitlement mentality and shoddy values of those people. Stop trying to fix their problems by giving them stuff.

    Bill O’Reilly actually nailed it in his “frank conversation about race”, the other day:

    “The solution to the epidemic of violent crime in poor black neighborhoods is to actively discourage pregnancies out of marriage, to impose strict discipline in the public schools, including mandatory student uniforms, and to create a zero tolerance policy for gun and drug crimes imposing harsh mandatory prison time on the offenders.
    And finally, challenging the entertainment industry to stop peddling garbage. Hey listen up you greed heads, if a kid can’t speak proper English, uses the “f” word in every sentence, it’s disgraceful, it’s disrespectful — it’s disrespectful in his or her manner. That child will never, never be able to compete in the marketplace of America… never. And it has nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derelict parents. You’re the ones hurting these vulnerable children.

    You want a conversation, you got it. You want a better situation for blacks, give them a chance to revive their neighborhoods and culture. Work with the good people to stop the bad people. Pumping money into the chaos does little. You can’t legislate good parenting or responsible entertainment. But you can fight against the madness, with discipline, a firm message and little tolerance for excuse-making.
    It is now time for the African-American leadership, including President Obama to stop the nonsense. Walk away from the world of victimization and grievance and lead the way out of this mess.”

    When they force “low income housing” on nice neighborhoods, all they do is transfer all the social pathologies of the former bad neighborhoods on the nice neighborhood. It doesn’t fix the problem – it just spreads it around.
