Burn Down the Suburbs? By Stanley Kurtz August 1, 2012 4:00 A.M.
Editors Note: This article is adapted from Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities, by Stanley Kurtz, from Sentinel HC.
President Obama is not a fan of Americas suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them. With suburban voters set to be the swing constituency of the 2012 election, the administrations plans for this segment of the electorate deserve scrutiny. Obama is a longtime supporter of regionalism, the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation. To this end, the president has already put programs in place designed to push the country toward a sweeping social transformation in a possible second term. The goal: income equalization via a massive redistribution of suburban tax money to the cities.
Obamas plans to undercut the political and economic independence of Americas suburbs reach back decades. The community organizers who trained him in the mid-1980s blamed the plight of cities on taxpayer flight to suburbia. Beginning in the mid-1990s, Obamas mentors at the Gamaliel Foundation (a community-organizing network Obama helped found) formally dedicated their efforts to the budding fight against suburban sprawl. From his positions on the boards of a couple of left-leaning Chicago foundations, Obama channeled substantial financial support to these efforts. On entering politics, he served as a dedicated ally of his mentors anti-suburban activism.

Blaming Obama won’t fix a damned thing. Plenty of progressive republicans are pushing for the same crap.
We WILL LOSE if we continue to fight only when its convenient to do so.
Obama will target Suburban incomes for redistribution- next 2013 & beyond....
Obama blames white flight to the suburbs for the failing cities in America, he will target the tax base, incomes and fight to blend them (socialize them) for the sake of improving the inner cities. He has thrown enough government money at the problem now he is going to “equalize, standardize and blend city, county governments, and more importantly budgets from with the outlying areas. They will do it from an environmental mantra at first and then tighten the noose of collectivism, socialism....

Obama’s Plan to Eliminate Suburbs

Listen to it Button
RUSH: Stanley Kurtz has an article adapted from Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities. And he’s very blunt about this. I have the book as a powerful, influential member of the media. My book is right over there, Spreading the Wealth. I have a copy. “President Obama is not a fan of Americas suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them.” Now, Kurtz believes that this is an excellent way to campaign against Obama, that you don’t need to be Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative. You just need to tell people that live in the suburbs that no matter what they are, Obama’s coming for ‘em, that he has been raised to believe that it was flight from the cities that led to all of the horrible economic conditions, the rotten schools and all of this that plague America’s cities....
Just more redistribution, folks!
The failed liberal cities have every authority to siphon from the successful, more conservative suburbs.
But if you mention the failure of inner city governments to create a safe, low-crime atmosphere that is receptive to business and maintains its infrastructure, then you are a racist.
So, what Obama is ADMITTING here is that only with whites living there, makes cities safe and successful, and that the all black cities have failed because blacks failed because they had no whites??? Just asking.
Just keep pretending that we’re all the same.
This is what Oboma is doing. While he crows about his desire to save the middle class, his real agenda is to destroy it. That's why Oboma slipped and said the private sector is doing just fine - it's the government that's suffering the most.
People think Oboma is stupid, or he inherited this mess, or "he's trying" , but this is exactly what he's deliberately trying to do. Destroy middle class America. The middle class is the enemy.
(For more info on the radical lefts agenda and tactics, google Saul Alinski. You'll recognize what the left has done and is doing. Every one here should familiarize themselves with these left wing tactics.)
What we need in Chicago is another of Mrs. O’Leary’s cows.

Which Republicans for instance?
“move the poor out of cities by imposing low-income-housing quotas on development in middle-class suburbs”
That works well...saddle poor people with the responsibility of home maintenance..../sarc
...makes for great neighborhoods, over a five year period...
I suggest you hike up those big girl panties and start doing a little research on your own. The fact you haven’t already tells me how likely it is that you will. That would take courage.
You go right on ahead and take the easy way out there little lady.
My republican governor just announced another $38 million plus matching funds for greenways and preserves. Well actually about $5 for the land and the other $70 million or so is going to the cities for livable communities crap.
I’m gratified to see more and more references here to Alinski. It’s important that we are familiar with the doctrine and even moreso the tactics that he put forth that guide socialists like Obama.
Population density is very strongly correlated with the level of leftism. The connection is people living in closer quarters experience more envy, which leads to more hate, violence, destruction, murder, war, and voting Democrat. The nature of envy is not to have what someone else has, but to destroy what they have. As America becomes more densely populated, it becomes more socialist. There is some level of population density that results in maximum happiness, and living in a human ant hill is not it. If the government wanted us to find happiness they would adopt policies that depopulate cities and spread everyone out. Spread the people, not the wealth.
Kurtz has done some terrific stuff on Obama. He was the one who had the run in about his exposure of Ayres and Obama and the fund they jointly administered in Chicago on Milt Rosenberg’s WGN talk show prior to the election. Where they tried to shut it down.
When the herd is put into a corral, they are easier to control, and they can take all of the guns at one time. And, there will be no need for cars, just Volt golf carts.
He can spend less money on roads and bridges, and all shopping will be done at centralized, government-sponsored markets.
We’ve watched him “evolve” in 3 1/2 years, fom progressive, to socialist, to Marxist, and now he’s pushing for full blown communism.
He’s got to go.
What the heck are the taxpayers fleeing when they leave the cities? Perhaps that is the question that should be addressed.
Most Americans are unaware that one of the greatest threats to their freedom may be a United Nations program known as Agenda 21. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division for Sustainable Development created Agenda 21 as a sustainability agenda which is arguably an amalgamation of socialism and extreme environmentalism brushed with anti-American, anti-capitalist overtones.
Land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice
