“Regional Equity”—Obama’s Coming War On Whitopias
By Jesse Mossman, September 27, 2012, VDare
Paul Kersey recently reported on VDARE.com an emerging trend: for white suburbs to secede from larger urban jurisdictions and so form, in effect, whitopian enclaves.
But he did not mention that there are powerful forces on the other side pushing back hard—using a concept called “Regional Equity.”
Americans can be forgiven for not being familiar with Regional Equity. I had not heard the term myself until just a few weeks ago, when I caught Stanley Kurtz on the radio talking about his new book: Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities.
Put Regional Equity into a search engine and the language of the collectivists surfaces: transportation equity, environmental equity, healthcare equity, social justice, smart growth, and especially, sustainable communities.
The essence of Regional Equity is the use of centralized political power make things equal over regions—disregarding jurisdictions.
President Obama is very much on board with the Regional Equity movement.
