This HUD-run program could potentially be the number one way in which Obama fundamentally changes America, a promise he made upon election to office. And change America it will, unless conservatives start paying attention and fighting back.
There are many layers to explaining AFFH. There are the lies the Obama Administration spews to explain it, then there is the truth about what they are really doing. This is NOT a conspiracy.
According to Obama, if you are Caucasian and live outside of a city, in a suburb or rural community--you are racist and a bigot against "poor people." To combat this presumed racism and bigotry, Obama has ordered that free and low income housing for minorities be built in predominantly affluent, white areas. If your town or neighborhood has a code that requires you to build on .5 acres, an acre, two acres, etc., then that is racist and discriminatory against the poor.
Obama apparently believes non-whites and the poor people can't afford to build on that much land--and it is his job to fix that.
I believe all people have the opportunity to make choices and improve their life. I do not believe that is my responsibility to house, clothe, and feed able-bodied people who won't lift a finger to help themselves.
What AFFH does is inject partisan, liberal politics at the federal level into your neighborhood's local zoning regulations. Essentially, some federal HUD employee in DC, an overpaid and under informed bureaucrat, is looking at a census map and seeing the predominantly Red areas..."conservative areas"...and then relocating traditionally poor, liberal voters into those areas to change the demographics. In much the same way the Obama Administration quietly placed unaccompanied minors and other South American migrants in towns and neighborhoods who voted conservatively, he is building housing for no-and-low income families in similar areas.
This is the same liberal thinking that created Detroit, Southeast DC, Baltimore, the "west side", the "south side," or the other side of the proverbial tracks. When people with the means to move away from a deteriorating situation relocate, there are ripple effects such as the loss of tax money collected and then the subsequent loss of community services that the tax money provided.
Similarly, when you inject a high level of no-and-low income people into a neighborhood, there are ripple effects. It creates an increased strain on the populace to provide for those who will not provide for themselves. The schools are overburdened with poor kids; who will pay for a bigger school and more teachers? Not the no-and-low income families. They can't afford it; but you can.
If you don't believe me that this is happening and has far reaching ramifications; just ask Dallas residents.
HUD tested this policy there first in 2012. Now Dallas has one of the highest murder rates in the nation, and recently had to call in state troopers to help the local police control the crime. For the first time, violent crime has shifted to the small bedroom communities north of the city. Three suburbs that have seen the most Section 8 transfers — Frisco, Plano and McKinney — have suffered unprecedented spikes in rapes, assaults and break-ins, including home invasions.
The Obama Administration is so eager to push this forced migration that they are doubling the amounts of housing welfare payments for the poor--OUR tax dollars--and if they refuse, the administration is making them deals they can't pass up. If your community stands in the way, they will enact a series of Federal punishments in the way of funding cuts to you schools, infrastructure, and economy. You paid taxes to receive these services and Obama will deny them from you if you disagree with his plans.
Do you think any of this is coincidence? Liberals created the "projects" and other low income housing zones. They created these enclaves where crime and poverty--two thing that go hand-in-hand--form and persist. These are the most dangerous parts of our cities, and for reasons that continue to escape me, these areas are also solid Blue voting blocs.
It has become the self-licking ice cream cone of our time--a self-perpetuating system with no other purpose than to sustain itself. Every election, Liberal politicians con their voters by promising to clean up the 'hood and it never happens, but the impoverished continue to vote for free money, free housing, free cell phones, and a host of other benefits, hoping the hood will get better. It doesn't. It's been the norm for people living in these areas since the creation of welfare and they keep voting for the party that perpetuates the problem, and it keeps Liberal politicians employed.
People with the means to do so will move away from this invasion.
But you can bet your tax dollars, and your salary, that none of these liberal politicians pushing this agenda will have to move. They will ensure their neighborhoods will be exempt from such policies.
"I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." ~ Benjamin Franklin
