Every aspect of the Obama administration’s policy of creating equality in America has established the opposite goal. Better characterization of the policy would be that of ‘re-creating,’ as true equality was built into the founding documents at this nation’s outset. There is a dissembling penchant of this president to makeover the world according to his invalid, biased perspective.
Data collection quantifying population sectors by race, ethnicity (often incorrectly tagged ‘race’), economic standing, location, occupation, employment or lack thereof, education, and anything else government bureaucrats can devise, does one thing: it defines differences. This is precisely contradictory to the stated purpose of the race-profiling database that has been concocted to determine where people of varying color or ethnic origin plant their roots, and how they should be resettled to create multi-ethnic neighborhoods. (Sorry, but I have an aversion to using the improperly applied term of race to variations of people’s ethnicity, skin tone, geographic origin and, ridiculously, religion.)
What President Obama and other ‘race’ zealots have managed to implement through myriad administrative regulations is institutionalized discrimination, self-deprecation, self-hate and, on the other hand, unwarranted arrogance and pride; all of which engender anger and envy. Because of this manipulation of group emotion, the abyss grows wider and deeper between what should be a singular people – Americans.
When we first wrote about the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing proposal in August of 2013 (see 21st Century Slavery – HUD vs MLK, Page 16 of Pay Attention!!) the purpose of revoking personal choice of where and how average Americans live, regardless of color or cultural background, was addressed. Now, the directive we saw coming is being implemented with a vengeance as it undercuts every bit of equality that had been gained.
Equality is a mindset that does not see differences through eyes that don’t recognize a person’s skin color, possessions, type of employment or other factors that are now being abused to separate us from our neighbors.
Equality sees individuals, not categories that are assigned acceptable or unacceptable traits by elitist think tanks or government bureaucracies. The more people are categorized, the more they are dehumanized, which is why someone can eventually disassociate themselves from the “seething masses” that need to be thinned out. Their perceptions become so skewed that those lives no longer have value other than to be parted out for profit, like those children deprived of their first breath to fill orders for organs.
Equality is fostered by forgiveness; viewing each individual for their unique gifts and not as statistical luggage from past injustices only to be used as an excuse for future injustice. And this is being done under the guise of equitable (re)distribution not just of wealth but, now, of families.
Again, the outgrowth of this data gathering creates distinctions between individuals. Defining populace by standardized differences it institutionalizes grudges, unforgiveness, bitterness and boiling hate. The steps being taken to artificially multi-ethnicize (to coin a phrase) communities establishes discrimination by cataloging physical and economic disparities. HUD’s power trolling institutes an unending atmosphere of inequality that it was supposed to dismantle, and destroys the freedom it was said to protect, finally pulling apart the fabric of our nation.
Harmony is the sweet blending of individual notes to create a pleasing sound, an arrangement that soothes or invigorates. It cannot be achieved with dissonant squalls that battle each other.
Statistical categorizing of people creates dissonance, a growing discontent and brokenness until, divided, we fall.
