Posted on 07/08/2015 8:16:14 AM PDT by C19fan
Today, HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced the finalization of the Obama administrations Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule. A front-page article pre-emptively defending the move appears in todays Washington Post. The final rule is 377 pages, vastly longer than the preliminary version of the rule promulgated in 2013. AFFH is easily one of President Obamas most radical initiatives, on a par with Obamacare in its transformative potential. In effect, AFFH gives the federal government a lever to re-engineer nearly every American neighborhoodimposing a preferred racial and ethnic composition, densifying housing, transportation, and business development in suburb and city alike, and weakening or casting aside the authority of local governments over core responsibilities, from zoning, to transportation, to education. Not only the policy but the political implications are immenseat the presidential, congressional, state, and local levels.

This is all about blowing-up Republican gerrymandering. The last bulwark against Liberal hegemony.
USSR designed Concrete High Rises for All
It’s only a small step to the government telling YOU
you have to move to a predominately black slum in
order to achieve “balance”.
This reminds me of a scene from Dr. Zhivago...
Isn’t that Castro fellow the next Vice President or something?
We should be OK in California, since non-Hispanic whites are now the minority.
It is not “overreach” any more, not since the USSC overturned the Constitution.
They tried school busing. That worked out well.
Now we have forced integration. You won’t get a home loan if there are too many of “your kind” in a neighborhood.
At least the Wookie will be prowd of “her” country.
The feds will now force blacks and other minorities into homes next door to the mowed lawns and gated communities who loved zoning (out of fear their property values who be diminished) will now have the ghettos moved into their communities!
Back when I was fighting local zoning control over our private property, I was told we have to have some zoning because no one wants to see junk in people's yards etc. Well, you haven't seen nothing yet, wait until illegal aliens are housed next door to you and instead of hauling down the trash for pick up, they throw it from the third story windows because they are too lazy to carry the trash down stairs!
This is exactly what happened to the projects in Detroit! A sixty million dollar housing project was destroyed in two years after blacks broke out the windows, tore the copper pipes from the walls and sold them, and cut down the aluminum light poles and sold them for scrap!
Enjoy America, you had a chance to stop all of this years ago, but, most of you wanted (a little zoning) like being a little pregnant, now, suffer the consequences!
How does this fit in with Agenda 21? Seems to me it goes against Agenda 21.
Not is all future “neighborhoods” look like Soviet-style concrete blocks.
It is , the redistribution of crime.
Do those who live in projects vote? Doubtful.
Dear middle class, politics-hating, average American: You might not care about Dear Leader or his plans, but Dear Leader has plans for you.
