Push Pull Man

Brooklyn

NYP:

In expensive ZIP codes, Castro’s plan — which requires no congressional approval — would more than double the standard subsidy, while also covering utilities. At the same time, he intends to reduce subsidies for those who choose to stay in housing in poor urban areas, such as Brooklyn. So Section 8 tenants won’t just be pulled to the suburbs, they’ll be pushed there.

Twenty-first century Negro removal.

Brooklyn won’t be a poor urban area for long.  It will soon be a very expensive urban area.

Dubuque, Iowa, for example, received an influx of voucher holders from projects in Chicago — and it’s had a problem with crime ever since. A recent study linked Dubuque’s crime wave directly to Section 8 housing.

Fewer problems with crime around where the Cabrini-Greens used to be, coincidentally.

Now Dallas has one of the highest murder rates in the nation, and recently had to call in state troopers to help police control it. For the first time, violent crime has shifted to the tony 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.

Yeah, so?  Dallas itself is becoming more arty-farty and SWPL-y.

Ironically, Hillary’s own hometown of Chappaqua is fighting Section 8 housing because of links to drugs and crime and other problems.

Why do you think HRC’s national campaign office is in Brooklyn?

The problem with most news and commentary about this matter, even from, (or especially from), mainstream conservatives, is that they don’t see the cui bono aspect, they don’t see who benefits, and therefore they don’t have the ability to finger any suspects.

Oh, and one more thing.  It goes under the “Why I’m #NRx” file — Notice that the plan “requires no Congressional approval.”  Time was not so long ago that anything close to a significant change in domestic policy required Congressional approval.  But, just as power has already accumulated around the Presidential center for military, foreign policy and diplomatic affairs for the purposes of “national security,” so is it also in domestic affairs, because equality and civil rights and social justice.  Far from the success of the Trump campaign knocking me off my #NRx game, it actually proves why #NRx is right for two reasons:  One, he’s an aberration, one of the few billionaires who is concerned about something other than himself and is willing to break with the rigid selfish class discipline of the billionaire class in order to be at least a wee bit patriotic, and two, the fact that he needed to do that proves the long term fool’s errand of democratic republicanism.  For my money, for all I could care, he could win, get in the White House, rip up the Constitution (which, as you can see from reading articles like these, would be redundant), and declare himself king.  (Then set up a King Lear scenario where he has to pick between Junior, Eric and Ivanka to succeed him upon his death or incapacitation.)

There’s another aspect to this that I didn’t think of until now.

Aside from shoveling ghetto blacks out of the core cities that SWPLs want to gentrify, that being the A-1 motive for AFFH, the politics of the matter are also brilliant chess board politics for liberals.

One thing you have to understand about the conventional boilerplate standard issue left wing is that they, like their conservative equivalents, live in a bubble with its own laws of physics. Just about everyone reading these words knows what lamestream conservatives are really like, in fact, we’re the universe that, if we didn’t out right coin the term “cuckservative,” we incubated it and shot it up to the stratosphere. But, that’s not how the conventional left thinks. Watch a few hours of prime time MSNBC, and you’ll be told that lamer cons are nothing more than Nazi Klansmen who hide their true Nazi Klan agenda behind a labyrinthine series of dog whistles.

So, combine that with AFFH, and it’s easy to see that the libs think they have the cons’ king piece in checkmate. Raj Chetty’s research is the pseudo-intellectual justification for AFFH, and the very name of his very project is called Equality of Opportunity, and that of course is one of the lamer cons’ favorite phrases. So, the libs can claim that all they’re really doing with AFFH is what cons really want, giving “the disadvantaged” some good ole conservative “equality of opportunity.” And then the libs think that the cons will either respond by putting up some sort of opposition, in which case, the libs’ response will be, “see, we told you they were Nazi Klansmen hiding behind dog whistles, and all their egalitarian pretense was just bullshit, they just hate black people.” Or, the cons will not mount any opposition, give up, and the libs will be happy, just because they’re getting what they want without any opposition.

What the libs don’t realize is that there is another option, an option that is getting more and more popular these days: Tribally minded cons who only ever glossed onto con because they thought it was some sort of feasible political synonym for nationalism could quit being cons, and start responding with tribalism and nationalism, and not trying to justify it with con-egalitarian rhetoric. IOW, the king piece in checkmate will change colors and do an illegal move on the board.

A Harvard law professor has called for liberals to begin treating like Nazis those who subscribe to Christian or conservative beliefs.

The Republicans haven’t and won’t oppose this because they are paralyzed by anything that has to do with race. Who benefits is irrelevant as long as middle-and-below class whites don’t. Look at the that whole Trayvon-Mike Brown- Black Lives Matter thing that has been roiling the country for the last several years. Apart from Rand Paul and a few others who simply parroted liberal talking points the Republicans have nothing to say about it. They don’t dare say anything, thus The Donald. They don’t dare have an opinion about mentally disturbed men using the ladies room because that’s a race by proxy issue, it might be construed as supporting evil traditional white America. If it doesn’t involve wars for Israel or tax breaks for billionaires they don’t have any enthusiasm for it.
