NYT editorial: Federal government should require Section-8 housing be built in ‘affluent’ communities

In July 2018, the editorial board of the New York Times abandoned all journalistic objectivity with an editorial calling on the Democrat Party to go to war against President Trump, using mafia “Godfather” tactics.

But the plain truth is that, unless you are a “useless idiot” who swears by and only reads that piece of rag like an attorney I know, the New York Times (NYT) had abandoned objectivity long before July 2018. See:

We should, therefore, take a recent NYT editorial and its recommendation for what it is — yet another big dose of biased, leftist toxin.

On July 7, 2019, NYT published the editorial, “A New Approach on Housing Affordability,” penned by its editorial board, which “represents the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher.”

The editorial begins by stating the problem, that of the high and rising cost of rental housing in the United States, and bemoans how millions cannot afford to live in the neighborhoods that they want. 

The editorial then commends Democratic presidential candidates (Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren) who are addressing this problem with these policy proposals:

  1. Increase federal subsidies for renters, at a cost of $93 billion (Kamala Harris) to $134 billion a year (Cory Booker) and more (Julian Castro).
  2. Increase federal subsidies for the construction of affordable housing (Booker and Castro).
  3. Increase housing construction by having the federal government put pressure on local governments to allow more “development” (Elizabeth Warren). 

The NYT editorial opines that while increasing housing construction (“more market-rate development”) is a worthy goal, that isn’t enough — “Market-rate development, however, is not a sufficient solution.

The problems are two:

  1. “Wealthy residents” are the most resistant to “development”. In fact, “the states most resistant to allowing housing construction are the strongholds of the Democratic Party, in the Northeast and along the Pacific Coast, and the most resistant voters are the wealthy residents of those states who provide so much of the funding for Democratic presidential campaigns.”
  2. Even if the federal government increases rent and housing subsidies, “poor children” would still not be “raised in economically diverse neighborhoods” with better schools, but instead would live “in neighborhoods with high levels of poverty.”

The New York Times’ proposal is to revive and expand a policy of the Obama administration, wherein “poor” renters were given large vouchers to move to areas with more expensive housing and better schools, by having the “irristible force” of the federal government require “affluent communities to accept affordable housing projects.” 

In other words, if the NYT has its way, the federal government will compel local governments to construct Section 8 apartments and high-risers (“affordable housing”) in middle-class and “affluent” communities of single-family homes. Those “affordable” apartments and high-risers will be inhabited by the “poor” — among whom are gangbangers, illegal aliens and “refugees”.

This is socialism and the UN Agenda 21 on steroids.

Put the Section 8 housing directly next door to the members of this editorial board. Then have them give us an update on how well this brilliant opinion of theirs worked for ’em in say, five years.

Yeah, they could line Kalorama Ave. with them. Obongo and Big Mike would love it.

With the bussing they didn’t have to “live” on the bus. Look at this! This looks like something Chairman Mao would be proud of. I know Obongo would. So those who want to live in certain neighborhoods and can afford to do that should be deprived of that option? We need to import crime and unsanitary habits so that EVERYONE lives alike? This is America, not Red China. We have LOTS of experience with “the projects”. Don’t they work swimmingly? I know, its all whitey’s fault. Once upon a time I lived close enough to see this daily with my… Read more »

Great idea, there are several sections in and around Wash.DC that would be perfect!

`I have no problem with this. Been there, done that.

It ain’t “white flight”.

It’s “I ain’t gonna live like this flight”

This is the next step from Obama wanting to move the poor & criminal elements into affluent areas.

Yep. Isn’t it amazing that those who’s chant, “kill whitey!” was perfectly fine for eight years can’t stand the thought of sending back someone who entered illegally and hates America?

Those who try to tell me that this isn’t a deliberate plan show their ignorance. Any of us who have ever done anything successful in our lives know that what they’re doing makes zero sense if your goal is honorable.

Build them next door to Bezos! I wonder how long his Editorial Board would have a job if they did?

This was not about the poor and the rich, it was about finding areas Obama deemed too White and making them Brown. I actually saw a map they had drawn up though I cannot find it now. Let’s think about this for a moment… big bucks are dumped into minority schools at the expense of middle class districts like mine to make it fair and even which forces the people where I live to have to do fund drives for supplies which essentially is taxing parents twice. They took away funding for buses for daily transport to and from schools… Read more »

I agree. They’d like to treat us like their personal chess pieces. Well, we know where all this comes from.

Besides, we had eight years of Little Barry whining and demeaning America and trying to do as much damage as he could.

This and everything else they do is about displacing whites. Water will always seek a level surface but it is impossible to uplift people of African descent, as a whole. There are exceptions. For most of my life I thought otherwise, now I know better. They are who they are, and now they are easily manipulated pawns conditioned to blame whitey for everything. William T. Sherman said it best, All the congresses in the world cannot make the African what he is not

Lana you make perfect sense. I can remember years ago when George Soros gave $200 for each child who was on welfare for them to get school supplies. It was in the form of $200 debit cards. The vast majority went for big screen tv’s and tiny purchases with the rest converted to CASH…. Oh and yes the kids that were supposed to benefit from it had to be given their supplies from donated sources as well as 2 subsidised meals a day at school. I live in a fair neighborhood but we are noticing a decline as shitbags move… Read more »

The only real answer to this kind of thought is to round up those who purpose this and send them to Siberia ……One Way…..

Not a bad idea, build next to Barrak Hussein Obongo, Michael, his make believe “daughters”, that will really make up for their environment to prosper.

It would be much easier on everybody if we just use the “irresistible force of the government” to move these very special so-called “lawmakers” into the poor, gang-ridden neighborhoods so that they may enrich the lives of their constituents.

This has been done over and over and over again. Section 8 people destroy the neighborhoods they are placed in. As Spock said, Civilized people can easily act like barbarians, but barbarians have zero ability to act like civilized people. Very disturbing humans seem to have a total inability to learn from experience.
Animals are much smarter.
