Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Friday that “Democrats want to abolish the suburbs.” And the party’s top pick for the presidency is doing his part to make it happen.
Former Vice President Joe Biden announced last week a new proposal that, according to Breitbart, “seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities.”
Breitbart reports that the proposal, called “the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations,” would force “low-income housing into every neighborhood and [flood] every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise.”
Biden’s “unity” platform would offer instant amnesty to undocumented immigrants and refugees, as well as offer a path to citizenship, Breitbart noted.
The end of suburbia?
According to Breitbart, also nestled within the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations is a plan to reactivate Barack Obama’s “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” program. In its simplest form, this program mandates that all communities — including suburbs — begin to offer low-income housing.
According to Carlson, plans like these would “make the rest of America very much like our biggest cities have become: squalid, dangerous, chaotic, and unhappy.”
“They’d like to do to your neighborhood what they have done to New York City,” Carlson told his viewers, according to Breitbart.
He went on: “Democrats want to abolish the suburbs. They are too clean and nice, and therefore by definition, they are racist.”
“In your neighborhood”
The Fox host warned that the proposal could result in towns being “ordered to abolish zoning for single-family housing because single-family homes, needless to say, are racist.”
“Low-income federally subsidized apartments will go up in the suburbs,” he said, as Breitbart reported. “You won’t see projects being built in Aspen or Martha’s Vineyard or anywhere else Eric Holder vacations, but in your neighborhood? Oh, yeah.”
It’s important to note, too, that Democrats tend to carry big cities in national elections, while the GOP tends to dominate in suburbia. With that in mind, it’s hard not to ask if Dems like Biden may have more nefarious motives behind their plans to rezone America’s communities.
Only time will tell, however, if “Joe 30330” can muster up enough votes this November to make his plans a reality.
