Affirmatively Destroying America's Neighborhoods In The War On Suburbia

Few of us understand patient gradualism. We live and have our being within a few years and mostly in an unconscious automated state of mind.

But people in power are long-term planners. They absolutely understand human nature and how to channel it to the evolution and refinement of the authoritarian state.

Authoritarianism is based on long-term planning. Authoritarianism is a philosophy of collectivism. Some call it democracy. Some call it communism. Some call it fascism. Some call it National Socialism. But whatever you call it, it is all collectivism or authoritarianism; and in its ultimate form it is globalism.

The goal is perfect docility and perfect harmony with authoritarianism (economic, social and spiritual). Until the people accept collectivism under some pretext, they are not docile and completely subdued. Once they do, rebellion and confrontation are impossible. This is the ultimate goal of the globalists, and the American system is nearing this state.

As I told you last week in “Why is the war on the Confederacy still going on today?,” the dismantling of the middle class has become the appointed, full-time task of the largest government alphabet soup agencies and Wall Street on behalf of globalism. The purpose behind this is that if those big middle-class producers and consumers can be decimated once and for all, then they can join the ranks of low-wage workers and more readily accept government largess and, thereby, become “hooked” on collectivism.

Collectivism is a certain means of social, economic and religious control. Politicians regularly espouse individualism, human liberty and democracy at the same time. Impossible! Individualism and human liberty are opposite to democracy and any other form of collectivism. The collectivist mentality or the mass collective mind is the spirit of the New World Order.

But something is standing in the way. Despite the years of indoctrination through the public (non)education system and mass programming by the national propaganda media and public (i.e., government) policy, rural Middle and Southern middle-class Americans — the “Red States” of “flyover country” — continue to resist the globalists’ dreams of a socialist/Marxist “utopia” and egalitarianism. That’s because they are, by and large, more independent and more self-reliant and also demand equitable reward for their labor and product, placing them in competition for resources and goods with the global elite.

Efforts to remove this obstacle are behind the current war on the middle class and individual liberty and the spirit of individualism through the attempts to whitewash Southern culture from existence and distort the true nature of the Confederate cause by casting it and Confederate symbols as racist and treasonous. The bigoted elites in the District of Criminals and pointy-headed “thinkers” in the prestigious institutes of learning continually promulgate the meme that whites — rural whites in particular and Southern whites specifically — are backward, racist buffoons riding in trucks looking for blacks to lynch while ridiculously clinging to their guns and religion.

The purpose is to stir up racial animosity and manipulate the people against one another. Manipulating minorities who are naturally drawn to socialism is basic political strategy to cover government crime and justify government politics and plunder.

The principle of government is that political power is maximized by forcibly leveling every individual to the same status of conformity, collectivism, egalitarianism and serfdom.

The truth goes deeper. Because of perceived social, cultural, racial and psychic inferiority, minorities desire to parasite on government force and socialism to subvert those they envy and wish to imitate. (This includes all so-called minority groups, not just racial minorities.)

Last summer, there was an invasion of illegals from Central and South America stemming from the immigration policies and statements of President Barack Obama. Over the ensuing months, the Obama regime shipped those illegals into communities and cities across the country and immediately began efforts to grant them some sort of legal status in order to ultimately provide them with voting rights in a back-door effort to change the local demographics and, therefore, the voting outcomes in these communities from a conservative bent to one more socialistic.

Third World immigrants are attracted to cradle-to-grave nanny state socialism because it is what they know and all they have known. They are also more accepting of gun control and the police state. They have no understanding of or experience with individual liberty or the concept of natural rights.

Gaining voting “rights” for non-citizens is the main driver of the federal opposition to voter ID laws.

The Obama regime attempted but failed with a mass social re-engineering scheme in 2010. That effort, fueled by corruptocrat Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), sought to fulfill the United Nation’s Agenda 21 plan, adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and signed onto by “New World Order” President George H.W. Bush.

Using a typical government “carrot-and-stick” policy, the bill sought to award or deny grants from the federal treasury to cities based on their compliance with amending or passing zoning laws to restrict housing in rural areas and force the residents into city centers.

The stick, in addition to denial of the funds, would be bad publicity generated by “Green” organizations working on behalf of the federal government criticizing local government officials for turning down free money and neglecting so-called “Green” initiatives.

Now comes Obama’s speciously titled Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing edicts from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This extra-constitutional rule change has been in the works for more than two years, but has been largely glossed over by the MSM. It seeks to do the reverse of the Dodd bill. That is, rather than drive the suburbanites into the cities, it seeks to move inner-city minorities into the suburbs.

The AFFH will have the federal government imposing preferred racial and ethnic composition on neighborhoods in exchange for federal funds provided or denied. It will change zoning laws, require a certain amount of government-subsidized housing in rural areas in order to achieve “racial balance,” control transportation and business development and remove the authority of state and local governments in the areas of zoning, transportation and education.

As National Review’s Stanley Kurtz writes:

Fundamentally, AFFH is an attempt to achieve economic integration. Race and ethnicity are being used as proxies for class, since these are the only hooks for social engineering provided by the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Like AFFH itself, today’s Washington Post piece blurs the distinction between race and class, conflating the persistence of “concentrated poverty” with housing discrimination by race. Not being able to afford a freestanding house in a bedroom suburb is no proof of racial discrimination. Erstwhile urbanites have been moving to rustic and spacious suburbs since Cicero built his villa outside Rome. Even in a monoracial and mono-ethnic world, suburbanites would zone to set limits on dense development. Emily Badger’s piece in today’s Washington Post focuses on race, but the real story of AFFH is the attempt to force integration by class, to densify development in American suburbs and cities, and to undo America’s system of local government and replace it with a “regional” alternative that turns suburbs into helpless satellites of large cities. Once HUD gets its hooks into a municipality, no policy area is safe. Zoning, transportation, education, all of it risks slipping into the control of the federal government and the new, unelected regional bodies the feds will empower. Over time, AFFH could spell the end of the local democracy that Alexis de Tocqueville rightly saw as the foundation of America’s liberty and distinctiveness.

To accomplish its goals, HUD will dig into the racial balance ZIP code by ZIP code looking for areas of segregation, with the segregation threshold being nonwhite populations of 50 percent or more. Federally funded cities deemed overly segregated will be pressured to change their zoning laws to allow construction of more subsidized housing in affluent areas in the suburbs and relocate inner-city minorities to those predominantly white areas. HUD’s maps, which use dots to show the racial distribution or density in residential areas, will be used to select affordable-housing sites, according to the New York Post.

To employ this policy, the federal government has undertaken a massive Orwellian-style data collection initiative, prying into the medical records, credit card purchases, mortgage business records, IRS filings, employment records, educational records and local government policy initiatives searching for racial “inequalities” for the Justice Department to prosecute.

The only way to resist this tyranny is for local governments to eschew all federal monies including Community Development Block Grants going forward. Of course, local residents always pressure their community leaders to accept government monies under the auspices that they have paid their “taxes” and want a return on their “investment.” But once the Feds get their hooks into the local community through the distribution of money from the federal treasury, they can exert total control over local government’s functions regarding housing, zoning and regulations far more than they do already.

The globalist agenda is the most comprehensive program for world fascism and world collectivism ever conceived. Its basis is esoteric deception, as carried out pragmatically by mass politics, international mass banking and the mass media. It operates as a whole — as an organism. Today’s democratic globalists make the communists and the Nazis look like amateur totalitarians.

And, that describes Obama's domestic agenda perfectly.

Let's hope my municipality refuses their HUD funding and tells them to go fuck themselves.  Then, this area will be a shining beacon and will attract home buyers and small businesses.  Sorry if that is not compassionate, the world is not compassionate and we don't need that riff raff around here.... that's why i left St. Louis...

Keep in mind that cities are the worst ecological nightmares ever developed by mankind.  Everything has to be transported long distances.  Energy costs to maintain the infrastructure are enormous. Transportation costs within the city are enormous. Infrastructure building becomes prohibitively expensive.  Only the enormous power of a government can keep these nightmares functioning.

This is why you never give them more than address and number of people in a house during the census.

Did you think they were going to help you using all the extra info you provide?

I dont even give them that.  I told the census worker to "Get off my lawn!"

I suspect the lower half had dropped out before the eighth grade.  One half the population is below average.  One half of that is dismal.  In an effort to leave no child behind, we have drop the bench mark so low that a planarian can cross it.

We have technology now so we don't need no stinking education.

The machines that our "owners" possess create our productivity and as citizens of this planet we deserve to share in that productivity. I don't know why we deserve it other than our ideological leaders say so...and I really want to believe them.

When I was in school the most basic calculator was not allowed in tests as it was considered cheating. Now it is only considered cheating if you get caught.

Funny in early 70's when our schools were being destroyed by busing.  Grammar was removed, math was lowered down to + and _ , homework removed, science consisted of movies.

None of the people in the suburbs gave a rat’s ass about our schools. 

If you want an effective strategy there are really only two short of revolution.

Organize opposition to the Federal Reserve.

Deprive Washington on money.

That is it.   Short of that the Wall Street March to totalitarianism will continue unabated.

Glad to see the suburbs getting a bloody nose.  Maybe you will wake.  It’s possible.

deprive money of DC. will not work because they do not work in fiat phys but in electronic writes on books, they do not give a fuck about money for money, the print is just 000 on computers.

QE has never injected a single dollar in reel economy, why it would bother DC. now... ?

Exactly, people still think the .gov in the US needs their "taxes". The money is just zero and ones anyway; only the US can get away with this for now on account of the "reserve" currency scam - can't last forever though.

Yeah but the government can't print money. 

They borrow it from the FED.  It will blow up though.  It is a certainty.

I swear idiots just read the argument they want to read so they can attack the straw man they want to attack with the argument they are just dying to make.

Nothing in my post suggested I support suburbanisation in any way. I was merely observing the idiocy of one of the esteemed members of this prestigious site's inability to accept that cities exist because they "make sense".

Yeah fuckers, downvote me for calling a spade a spade (and unlike the typical post on this site these days, I mean that without racial prejudice).

I just returned from a couple of weeks in Amsterdam and Dublin. Those cities are not ecological nightmares the way that most North American cities are. But in those cities, the highest buildings are maybe 15-20 stories, not the 60-, 70-, and even 100-storey buildings common in North America, and most buildings are 5 stories or less. 

The far lower population density means traffic isn't as bad, energy costs are lower, etc. etc. 

Looking at things this way, the elevator may have been the most ecologically disastrous invention, ever!

Or those city people living out in the country just might adopt the attitudes of those country folk.  We'll just have to see.  In the country, there's nobody nearby to the the broken, pump, fireplace, water heater, etc but you and your neighbor a few miles down the road.  In the suburbs, it's gonna cost you big money to get those repairs done....unless you learn to do it for yourself (ie independence again).

A few years ago when the morons of S. Dakota voted to keep property taxes even though they have enough gas and oil revenue, I realized we had pretty much lost the fight for liberty and were now officially sheep.


Ace Ventura's picture

Something tells me most South Dakotans voted AGAINST keeping the viciously-tyrannical implement known as 'property taxes'. However, as with ALL such referendums across this newly forming mega-banana-republic....the establishment simply programmed their DIEBOLD machines accordingly. Awww gosh, sheeple....the referendum 'passed' by a 56/44 percent vote. So close, but oh well....guess we're keeping those taxes. would we pay our cops and teachers if we got rid of them?!!!
