Biden’s 2020 Party Platform Proposal Seeks
to Abolish America’s Suburban Communities

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 7/12/2020 12:13:35 AM

Joe Biden’s radical proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities by forcing low-income housing into every neighborhood and flooding every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise. The proposal, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide instant amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for the 22 million illegal aliens now living in the nation. Astoundingly, it would also give legal status to all the world’s refugees regardless of the legitimacy of their claim to the status.


Additionally, Biden/Sanders are “proposing that Barack Obama’s so-called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (Section 8) rules will be put into force.” Biden “would roll back Trump Administration policies gutting fair lending and fair housing protection.” Biden would enforce “the Fair Housing Act and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act ... Hold financial institutions accountable for discriminatory practices in the housing market.” According to Tucker Carlson, “Democrats want to abolish the suburbs...they are too clean and nice, and therefore by definition, they are racist.”

People who have no stake in their homes do not treat them well. They make terrible neighbors. People should live where they can afford to live, and better themselves if they want to have upward mobility. Rather like people have been doing since America was founded. I grew up in the suburbs and the black families who lived there could afford the homes and showed up to the PTA meetings at school. That's not what happens when you transplant trash of any color into quiet suburban neighborhoods.

All those suburban females that supposedly have been captured by the Biden camp and the leftist and liberal Democrats because of some supposed personality conflict with President Trump cannot wait to vote for this Biden and Democrat platform idea that would destroy their communities and bring inner city violence to their neighborhoods, you can bet on that!

A Section-8 complex ruined a safe neighborhood here in my town. Now there's gunshots day and night in what was formerly a quiet, thriving community. Additionally, the few businesses in the mostly residential neighborhood were forced to close due to high crime rates.

Of course, the ruling Demon-Rat Politburo will be exempt from all this. It will only apply to the peasants. I'm sure they will claim it is for "security", but the Demon-Rat overlords will be allowed to live in luxury gated communities without a peasant or homeless person within miles.

Isn't this the reason banks collapsed in the first place - loaning mortgages to people who had no ability to pay? SS will collapse too if the whole world can claim USA citizenship. These people are nuts and should get zero votes.

I want to be in a community where the cops are supported and allowed to do their jobs. That includes shooting back at the criminal. These two ideas of supporting cops and living with the "poor," based on observable facts, aren't in the least bit compatible to peaceful living. This opnion in not racist it is simple risk management.

After just reading the article about the George Floyd case, I am convinced that the media is successfully driving how we Americans should be thinking. This comes in addition to what Americans were being pumped full of by the media with the COVID cases. Joe Biden wants to keep duping Americans just as the media wants to keep doing. Diamond and Silk recently asked the question, why do you keep voting for the same people who keep you suppressed? I ask the same question of Americans, why do you want to vote for a party that keeps duping you? Joe Biden belongs to that party.

The truth is that this has nothing to do with fairness or combating racism. This us about political and electoral power. Once the conservative and swing districts are flooded with democrat voters, republicans become an endangered species. Almost every city is majority democrat. They have voters to spare to move into other districts to swing them. Think of this like New Yorkers, Pennsylvanians, New Jersey residents relocating to FL, TX and tge Carolinas. What were once reliably conservative states are increasingly less so.

Know a city where this has happened over the last 5 years or so. Town homes built were both subsidized and non subsidized. School class rooms were over crowded and crime began to rise. Incidents in schools rose where kids were now disrupting classes. All were a direct result of the new housing programs. Once it start its hard to stop. So, don't let it get started, towns will regret it. Got it.

For those on the Right who are "awake" we realize that these recent riots are the attack on The Bastille or the firing on Fort Sumter of our generation. It is not a warning sign ... it is the start of a revolution and must be stopped now! Their idea is to take over and rule with an iron hand. And never, ever let someone like Trump in again. Ever. They must be resisted and stopped. Start recall petitions, organize counter marches, whatever. This is the Left's last chance and they know it. Another four years of Trump and things going well for most of us means the middle moves right, not left --- and they know it. Should, Heaven forbid, they win this November then look for them to add Washington D.C. and maybe Puerto Rico to get 4 more Dem senators, they'll expand the Supreme Court to 11, redraw all congressional lines, etc. Only an idiot would vote for a Democrat this November --- on any level of government!

Since this was an Obama EO, I am hoping that this one is one that Trump ripped out by the roots. Democrats don't realize that their gated communities and walled compounds are no longer sacrosanct in terms of being without low income residents near them. This toxic EO opened up a whole can of worms that would have finally made the Left open for low income housing just like the rest of us. All you needed to qualify was to be considered 'too white'.

Not only does this remind me of Agenda 21, it reminds me of the judicial decision for Oklahoma where it declared large swaths of land were under native American jurisdiction. Both could be used to force people into the cities. If its bad for America, Biden and the Democrats are for it. Saw for 8 years with obama. This is a continuation.

One point in the Communist Manifesto is for government to control where people live. Barack Obola tried to do that through regulatory action expanding the definition of 'navigable eaters.' That would have eliminated most septic permits, thus disqualifying any building permits. scattered site low income housing did the same. You have to keep an eye on Barack and those of his ilk. They are good at back door approaches. they don't call him Backdoor Barry in Chicago, for nothing.

I live in a mixed suburban neighborhood. Very nice, quite and in good condition. Everyone gets up and goes to work in the morning and comes home at night. I defy anyone to come here and tell what race any of the homeowner is. You can't, you know why, they all want the same thing, a place to live their lives quietly and safely. If Joe Biden does what he wants, you will ruin every neighborhood like mine. Trump 2020

The problem here is one of demographics. The suburbs are now filled with 30-55 year olds who have been brainwashed for 30-55 years that it's up to them to be social warriors and correct the alleged injustices of the past. They're filled with guilt about their so-called privilege, they believe the solution for alleged past mistakes is to create OneWorld--- where we're all individual, equal, non-gendered "units" who must feverishly work together to "save" the planet. They want to purify history and create some kind of Valhalla that is almost robotic and denies the human experience, warts and all. What they don't know, of course, is that in creating this Utopia of OneWorld we would lose the very cultural identities which so many of them are fighting to retain. No borders, no differences. A squeaky-clean place, with history erased. So it's really no problem for Joe or Sanders. Although their message is terrifying and mystifying to those of us who know the horrors of trying to create a perfect society, it's a message that will unfortunately resonate with more suburban voters now than we can imagine.

...After reading some posts and article I came to a conclusion. Maybe it's a conspiracy theory. I live in a suburb in central Louisiana. I noticed all the new apartment complexes going up. Where are all the people who are planned to move into these places? Illegals perhaps. Most residents have apartments or homes. Where is the need for all these new apartments? It's happening everywhere. Even in Washington state (the wizard of odddddzzzzz state). Just wondering. We have a university. Not enough people there to fill up all of the buildings...oh well. enough of this junk.

It was, by any measure, a royal wedding like no other. On the side of tradition, there was the beaming couple, a chapel laden with flowers, and the bride’s beloved grandparents at its heart.

n April, author and political commentator Michael Walsh predicted that Joe Biden would choose Michelle Obama as his running mate within a month or so: “[It] would be an unstoppable ticket, and potentially give the Obamas eight more years in the White House.” Walsh quotes Dick Harpootlian, South Carolina’s former Democratic Party Chair: “If she engages, God help Donald Trump, because she’s tough as nails and enormously popular.” Mrs. Obama, Walsh wrote, “is the perfect vice presidential candidate, one who will . . . push progressive causes, and check all the social justice boxes” while sparking a massive African American vote, a feat beyond Biden’s wildest dreams.

Noose hoaxer Bubba Wallace this week was booed as he was introduced at the NASCAR all-star qualifier and cheered after he crashed. The media exploded last month after NASCAR released a statement revealing that a ‘noose’ was reportedly found in top driver Bubba Wallace’s Talladega garage stall. The FBI unleashed 15 agents on the case and ultimately determined that the ‘noose’ was actually a garage door pull rope. It was a garage door pull rope. Fans feel duped after rallying around a crying Bubba Wallace. “Bubba Wallace was also booed when he was introduced, and many cheered when he crashed,” AP reporter Jenna Fryer said. /snip for Tweet/ Bubba
