HUD Launches ‘Fair Housing’ Ads, Cites ‘Religious Discrimination,’ ‘Neighborhoods with Mosques’

Elizabeth Harrington, CNS News, April 4, 2013

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is launching an advertising campaign to “educate the public” about housing discrimination, saying there is a “persistence of discrimination based on religion.”

The public service announcement campaign will feature television, radio and print ads in English, Spanish, and Chinese around the theme “Fair Housing is Your Right, Use It.”  {snip}

{snip}

The campaign will encourage individuals to file complaints under the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which made it illegal to discriminate in the sale or rental of housing based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, familial status or disability.

{snip}

HUD will also implement its iPhone app that it unveiled in February into the campaign, which allows individuals a “quick and easy way” to file housing discrimination complaints on their mobile phones.

In addition, the campaign will advertise print ads that feature several scenarios of individuals and families facing discrimination based on their race, religion or disability.

A Muslim woman wearing a hijab is the subject of one ad that says, “Is religious discrimination keeping you out of the home of your dreams?”

The ad then tells people to look out for these “possible signs” of housing discrimination: “I’ll show you neighborhoods with mosques”; “We only take people who speak English clearly”; and “You might be more comfortable living elsewhere.”

{snip}

Another depicts a Hispanic family with the caption, “They told us to ‘live someplace else.’”  “We have rights.  We called HUD,” the ad states.

A separate ad features an African-American boy with the caption, “How can we tell him that the color of his skin is keeping his family from the home of its dreams?”

{snip}

The PSAs will run in advertising space and in time-slots donated by the media.  The radio ads will be featured on more than 3,500 radio stations and networks throughout the country.

    This is like something straight out of the Soviet Union. Fair housing is now a RIGHT? Where in the Bill of Rights or anywhere in the Constitution does it say that U.S. citizens have the “right” to fair housing? It’s like they transplanted the Ad-Men from the Politburo to the halls of Congress. So now one can get the “home of their dreams” through HUD? I guess working and saving up is for chumps, err i mean White people. It’s funny, the only reason why there is perceived “discrimination” by HUD is because all of these non whites want to live in their “dream house” in the nice WHITE areas and we do not want them. Why do they want to live where they are NOT wanted? (rhetorical question)

    • “Fair housing” is so much a “right” that bar fights are now considered fair game for “fair housing” jurisdiction.

      However, what isn’t a violation of “fair housing” is when mahogany mobs throw bricks through your window with little notes taped to them that read, “Get out honkey.” That actually happened in St. Louis.

      • So CAL Snowman

        Jesus man I just read that article, and I have to say while it chilled me to the bone I am not surprised.

        “The jury found the defendants guilty of violating the criminal component
        of the federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it a crime to use a
        person’s race, national origin or ethnicity as a basis to interfere,
        with violence or threats of violence, with a person’s right to live
        where he chooses to live.”

        I gather that they were convicted on a HUD statute because they were already tried once and exonerated, so the prosecution had to get tricky. The funny thing is, as the author points out, that HUD does not apply to ILLEGAL ALIENS! The sick thing (what isn’t sick) is the advocacy from La Raza and all of the other anti-White organizations. They go to bat for one of “their” people yet the MSM NEVER calls them a ‘racist’ organization. Meanwhile AmRen can’t even meet in a Hyatt Hotel without being kicked to the curb. Sometimes I just don’t even know why I get out of bed. Guess I’ll just have to double down on surfing and dirt biking now that snowboarding season is over. I have found that connecting with nature is one way to free my mind from the overwhelming tidal wave of apathy and despair.

      Because they don’t want to live where they ARE wanted.

      WHITES were not wanted in AMERICA. They came here and forcefully took the land that rightfully belonged to NATIVE AMERICANS. It’s payback time now ! Karma’s a bitch. It’s time for whites in America to give up their land to the Hispanics and Muslims and go to Canada or Greenland or anywhere else. America is for brown people !

      • guest

        I once looked up the website demographics for Amren, and it has many non-white visitors. Bienvenudos!

        At this point, many readers here are wondering about doing exactly what you said: abandoning America. This could mean carving out a white homeland in some part of America. Many of us would be delighted to leave the nice and sunny parts of the USA for you if we can have the cold snowy bits to ourselves.

        Unfortunately there’s one small problem. “Brown people” (using your words) will turn whatever they control into another Mexico or Brazil. They will look at our whiteopia, which will be safe, have good schools, good public services, and will be pleasant and beautiful (and will be where all the white women are!). It will have a good economy with good jobs. All the brown people will want to immigrate to that place, and will complain of racism when they are denied.

        You hate us but you can’t live without us. I’ll tell you a secret: we don’t hate you but we can easily live without you.

        Whites always want to move away from blacks and browns. Blacks and browns always complain about how evil and racists are but they do not want to live separately from us. They can’t live without access to white-created jobs, infrastructure and public services, and they also lust after white women.

        So thank you for your comment. Eventually enough whites will figure out what’s going on and there will be a day when we resolve all outstanding issues.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          Perhaps, as he suggested whites really should leave for Europe. That’s fine as far as it goes, but I believe it would be completely fair if we demolished everything we have built in the New World since 1492 before we depart.

          Dynamiting the big hydroelectric dams should be quite spectacular!

    “How can we tell him that the color of his skin is keeping his family from the home of its dreams?”
    No, you tell him that it is everything except the color of his skin that concerns potential neighbors.

    “Is religious discrimination keeping you out of the home of your dreams?”
    No, it is your fetish of anything and everything 7th century that concerns potential neighbors.

    “I’ll show you neighborhoods with mosques”
    Their just around the corner and 5000 miles away.

    “We only take people who speak English clearly”
    Because if you need emergency services and the 911 dispatcher or your neighbors can’t understand you, well then, you’ll just be SOL won’t you.

    “You might be more comfortable living elsewhere.”
    Say, in the middle of nowhere on the other side of the planet.

    Leave it to the government that we pay for to encourage the darkies to sue us. We really do have a minority-controlled government.

    Even more nauseating are the radio commercials that gush about how great mixed neighborhoods are. Yeah, they stay mixed until the last YT moves out.

  • sbuffalonative

    Like any backward people, they covet what they can’t create for themselves. They seethe with envy and jealousy. Since they can’t make it themselves, they have to take it from those who can.

    • a multiracial individual

      Shouldn’t this realization raise a sense of “duty” and “hard-work” in people?

      “Look those Europeans have built some nice stuff, let’s put down the rocket launcher and start getting to work so we can build something to be proud of.”

      I’m dreaming of course.

      • sbuffalonative

        I’ve said it before. Whites and Asians have written the instruction manuals of modern civilization. Any other people should be able to copy what we’ve done if they have the skills and the motivation. Nobody needs to re-invent the wheel. All they have to due is recognize its value, build it themselves, and make it work.

        But that’s the problem. Even when we give these people pre-built cities and nations (like SA or any colonial nation in Africa) once they get in control, it’s all down hill.
        So they cling to us because they know they can’t do for themselves.

    • Exactly. And they don’t even need to use force to do it. Our white liberal friends in the courts and the government can’t wait to hand it to them on a silver platter. Why not? These wise latinas and hiajb wearing women won’t be moving into THEIR neighborhoods.

    Wherever they go becomes a place no one wants to be …

  • bigone4u

    They had the homes of their dreams subsidized by the feds when Bush was president. Then they got kicked out of the homes they could not afford during the “foreclosure crisis” by the evil white bankers. Now they’re back. This time the idea seems to be that a landlord must rent to every scumbag criminal dope-dealing rapist minority terrorist who signs a lease application. Our owners in Washington are going to be hung in the public square before this is over for their crimes against decent hard working white Americans.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I believe only landlords with a certain minimum number of units are required to follow fair housing regulations. If you own one condo across town, this does apply to you. If you are renting out the guest room in your own residence, this does not apply to you. If you have a detached “granny flat” in your back yard, this does not apply to you.

      • Spartan24708

        This is true- if it is an “owner occupied” property or you own less than 4 units you are partially exempt. You still can’t state a preference but they aren’t supposed to be able to charge you with anything. I have one house that we rent and I had the usual barrage of “do you take section 8” calls. My house would not pass the extensive inspection process and we would go broke waiting for the reams of paperwork to go through. I was told to never say “no” out right to a section 8 client but to say “I’m not set up for it” which is the truth. The state where the house is located prohibits discrimination based on “legal income source” but courts have ruled that a section 8 voucher isn’t income since it goes to the landlord rather than the tenant. Still it is scary since I got calls and an email that were fakes from HUD trying to trip me up.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          Thanks; I wasn’t aware the precise number was three or less.

    76,600 Jews live in Borough Park, a part of Brooklyn. These are mainly Orthodox Jewish families, who are very comfortable with the schools, synagogues and Kosher restaurants in their densely-populated surroundings. It is probably one of the most homogeneous neighborhoods in America.

    How many ‘Muslim women wearing hijabs’ or ‘African-American’ families would be welcome to settle in the center of Borough Park? How many Chinese, Vietnamese, Hindus or Hispanics?Will HUD work diligently to alter the monolithic religious, racial and ethnic character of Borough Park, or are there exceptions to its rules?

    Ethnic enclaves are a fact of life in America, but HUD isn’t targeting them. This is aimed at preventing whites from escaping diversity.

    • jay11

      That’s the rub. These laws will only be applied against white Americans. Foreigners suing Americans for the right to replace them!
      No latino will sue an asian because they are not welcome. No arab will sue a jew because the jews won’t rent to him. No asian will sue a mexican home seller in L.A. because they don’t want asians in ‘their’ neighborhood. It’s all blarney.

  • jay11

    Truth be told, none of those groups want to live around their own kind because their own kind sucks. So they use soviet-style tactics offered by leftists to basically invade more and more territory until they have taken everything from us.

    “The PSAs will run in advertising space and in time-slots donated by the media.”

    That’s an interesting use of “donate”. Another example of this usage: I donated money to gangsters so they wouldn’t burn down my business and break my legs.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I don’t see any reason to think the media was coerced into running these PSAs. The mainstream media is ultra-liberal. They’d be happy to run government propaganda of any sort for free, as long as it fit the liberal narrative.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    The simple solution is to simply shun these “neighbors”. Do not speak to them or help them in any way. If they need a jump-start, they can call AAA. If you have a snowblower, when you are finished with your own walks and driveway and those of the neighbor on one side, put your snowblower in your garage and go back inside for a hot cup of coffee without doing anything for the Arab or African on the other side. Do not loan them tools like pruning shears, a leaf-blower or a wet-vac. Do not allow their children to play with yours. Do not invite them to block parties.

    Eventually, they will realize that their “dream house” is simply an empty wooden box and that they have no connection with the neighborhood they have imposed their presence upon. Since humans are naturally social creatures, they will leave.

    • Sherman_McCoy

      Though I hear you, and mostly agree, the nicest guy in my old neighborhood in Texas was a Palestinian. He was the one who would have been out shoveling my sidewalk. That said, of course I knew he was proselytizing people to islam. Maybe those of us trying to win others to racial realism could learn something from him.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        We have a Palestinian in my neighborhood. Caveat: he is a Christian and not a Muzzie. There’s a world of difference.

  • Nathanwartooth

    The thing is that Muslims probably want to live where a Mosque is and around other Muslims.

    So now real estate agents are going to have to waste hours showing them houses they are not interested in just so they don’t get sued for discrimination.

    The fact that they made an app and made it super simple to file complains means that there are going to be thousands of new complaints cropping up. At least they made it so their government function will never be obsolete.

    • rightrightright

      Muslims get a toe-hold in a respectable area, say two families of them. They then start to hold regular “prayer meetings” in one of the two houses attended by other transient muslims. Then, they apply to convert a building into a mosque (or euphemistically a community centre with prayer room) to accommodate all these travelling devotees. Next thing you know, you can’t park your car near your house, hordes of them are on the streets and moving in. You move out for the kids’ sake as you don’t want them being bullied or worse at school and force-fed the Allah stuff. You take a loss on your house as no white person wants to buy it and live among muslims.

  • Seek

    Remember, the late “conservative,” Jack Kemp, when he was HUD secretary during 1989-93, enthusiastically called for more secret monitoring of potential anti-black discrimination by white real estate agencies and more punishment of the guilty. This is a Republican as well as Democratic obsession.

  • thoughtcrime

    No doubt all the perps of housing “discrimination” are all 100% leering, grinning whiteys who laugh up their sleeves behind their victims…. Right?

    I work in the mortgage biz and I have never even heard of any of this actually happening. LO’s want to close loans so they can get paid, why would they “discriminate” against their own paychecks? This is more PC zeitgeist propaganda. No one is actually doing this.

    Fair Housing. Probably the most compelling reason I refuse to invest in rental property.
