There was a time, even in my lifetime I can remember it, where the “American Dream” was for a family to own their own home, with a back yard big enough to entertain friends and maybe even plant a small garden there. But the current regime has determined that such activities, even the thoughts thereof, are inherently “racist” and what is even worse, they may contribute to that worst of all possible evils, “climate change.” Therefore, your single family “racist” home probably needs to be done away with and replaced by a multi-story apartment house and your neighborhood rezoned to accommodate that.
Does anyone reading this recognize that this might be happening in their area?
According to an article in the Washington Examiner https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/biden-squeezing-suburbs-existence for June 3rd this may end up happening at many local levels. The article notes: “…the Biden administration is pushing local governments to allow apartment buildings in neighborhoods that are restricted to single-family homes. The administration claims it’s a way to ease a national shortage and combat racial injustice in the housing market…Critics claim the federal government’s plan would change the landscape of towns and cities across the country and torpedo the American dream.” But you have to realize this radical rezoning scheme is not for everyone. The Examiner article observed that “Biden himself owns a four-acre lakefront home in upscale Greenville, Delaware, where there is absolutely no public housing , affordable housing or rentals that accept housing vouchers. And don’t expect any to be built next door to the Bidens.” So it is really a case of “rezoning for thee but not for me.” Is anyone surprised? This is so typical of the ruling elites. They are more than willing to alter our lifestyles whether we want them altered or not, but don’t you dare to mess with theirs or they may get the National Security Agency after you.
Another article on https://outragedpatriot.com/wow-joe-biden-attempting-to-destroy-suburbs-with noted that “Trump said during a 2020 campaign rally that Biden wants ‘to put low-cost housing in the suburbs, and that would mean abolishing, ruining the suburbs. It has already begun. It’s been going on for years.” So Trump was right again. No wonder they had to steal the election from him!
The article continued: “But Democrats are, indeed, planning to federalize local zoning laws within the infrastructure reconciliation package to displace single family homes with high-rise, low income apartments to impact the already purple suburbs. The reconciliation package plans to begin the destruction of the suburbs via a measure within the package called the HOMES Act, which intends to put the federal government in charge of local zoning laws to change local demographics, impacting the already purple voting districts.” And any local government that chooses not to play this federal game may see its HUD funding cut. So federal blackmail is the real name of the game. Destroy your suburban neighborhoods or your federal funding dries up!
I hope our elected representatives here in Louisiana have got the sense God gave a goose and will vote against this monstrosity. Who knows if they have even read the bill. Here we are, a few days before Independence Day having to protest a bill that will be responsible for helping to destroy the American Dream!
But, then, that is what this current Regime is really all about–the destruction of the American Dream and the abolition of our God-given liberties. And there are way too many home-grown leftists in this country, educated in our public schools, who are more than willing to help them do that.
