Megyn Kelly Discusses How Obama plans to diversify wealthy neighborhoods

Fox News host Megyn Kelly has taken on President Barack Obama’s recently announced plan to diversity neighborhoods — especially wealthy ones — by forcing such areas to develop low-income housing or risk losing federal funds.

“The man who changed your healthcare system forever is now pushing to change your neighborhood,” she said. “That is, if Uncle Sam feels it is not inclusive enough.”

Kelly said the Obama administration is calling this a “plan to diversify neighborhoods,” but she said it’s much more.

“Experts say this is more than an attempt to change the way America’s neighborhoods look. It may also be an attempt to change the way they vote,” Kelly said.

Mark Thiessen, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, called the plan “insidious” and observed that the president was engaging in “social engineering of local communities.”

Thiessen also called the president’s proposed actions, to be administered through the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, an act of bribery or blackmail to get communities to “change their zoning policies.”

He said the problem of rich versus poor wasn’t rooted in bad local zoning laws but was the result of policies that limit opportunities for success and keep the downtrodden down.

Kelly stated her view of the plan’s purpose.

“They don’t want, quote, ‘unequal neighborhoods,’” she said. “They think too many cities are too white, too privileged, with too big McMansions, too big McMansions, and they – they want to diverse the communities whether the communities want it or not.”

Syndicated radio host Richard Fowler disagreed.

“I think what the president is trying to do is to create opportunity for all,” Fowler said. He compared it to the Supreme Court’s of Brown v. Board of Education case, which sought to eliminate segregation in public schools.

Kelly countered that anyone can live anywhere, no matter what his skin color. It just comes down to money.

“I mean, I didn’t grow up in a fancy neighborhood,” she said. “I wanted to be in one, but we couldn’t afford it, and you know, then getting to an adult, I made more money and now I live in a nice neighborhood.
“It’s all right. It’s a nice home. The neighborhood, anyway. The point is, that’s the way it was usually done. It’s not like you must diversify because Uncle Sam feels it’s too white or it’s too rich.”

Wild Thing's comment.............

Obama is so fully of hate and spite and resentment and jealousy.

It doesn’t have to be a wealthy neighborhood. It can be any middle class neighborhood with white and black families who take care of their houses and property but when Section 8 housing moves in, it degenerates real fast.

My middle class neighborhood is very diverse. About 50% minority. Asian, Hispanic and Black. Almost all got here on their own. No govt. help.

Except maybe one Nigerian immigrant family. They may be on govt. assistance. These days who the hell knows for sure.
