Just when I thought the left couldn’t get any more insane or dishonest.

    Besides housing policies, President Johnson’s Aid for dependent Children and other aspects of his “Great Society” program were what induced him to utter that famous quote “We will have ‘them’ voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” He get’s my vote for the worst U.S. President of all time.

      You forgot to mention that the “them” in the quote was not a them but the N word.

      The reason Johnson knew the outcome of his programm was simple.
      The democrats already started 100 years ago to buy black votes with free stuff and got already during the Jim Crow era 80% of their votes
      in return.

      My vote: Obama

    Finally it’s here:The Unified Field Theory of marxism.
    The merger of Racism&Global Warming as ultimate political tool.

    Once again, a model is at the center of these claims, instead of actual thermometers. Plus, I have never seen a large American city that did not have high income earners living in the center of the worst UHI. This study is a fine example of cherry picking, piss poor modeling over available data, and outright lies.

    Hi Tony –
    Please translate: what is redlining in this context?

    • John F Hultquist says:

      See the map here and the text:

    • RegretLeft says:

      good question: brief answer: US banks wanting to assess lending risks found that some significant percentage of borrowers living within certain areas had a high risk of default. They therefore drew “red lines” on city maps defining those areas and became reluctant to lend to residents living within those areas. US Justice Dept in the Obama administration outlawed the practice as discriminatory; those residents were very often minority groups.

      How’s that for a neutral answer? It gets more complicated. Banks then rushed -with various kinds of FedGov guarantees – to offer subprime mortgages and loans to residents of formerly redlined areas. Which, according to some, was a primary cause of the 2008 financial crisis.

      • arn says:

        Sir,how can obama admins outlaw something
        that lead to a crisis before obama was in office?

        not doubting the core of what you say,as the banking crisis was fabricated/deliberate,but some things dont add up.

      • Gator says:

        It wasn’t Obama. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 was the first move toward stopping “redlining”, and then there was the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977. Obama’s administration threatened to withhold federal funds from cities if they didn’t address segregation, but not specifically redlining.

        Banks have been fined hundreds of millions of dollars per charge for allegedly “redlining”, but in reality they could not find enough qualified borrowers in certain areas to meet the government mandated quotas. The largest bonus one of our hourly colleagues can receive is for referring a CRA qualified mortgage that actually goes through. It was never about race, all money is green.

        This government meddling is what caused the subprime mortgage crisis.

        • David Reich says:

          Read Peter Wallison’s minority report on the economic crisis of 2008. It expands upon the above. He was on the commission and was one of the few interested in the causes and truth.

          • Gator says:

            I have no need to read it, I lived it.

            I remember predicting the housing crisis years before it began. If you force banks to throw money down a hole, you can rightly expect everything to go to Hell in a handbasket.

  6. John F Hultquist says:

    Those with the means often locate to areas that are better suited by view, air quality, or general niceness.
    Examples: up-wind of stockyards, a view from a bluff, less swampy, better security

    Race isn’t the issue. Wealth is the driver.

    Besides — there is no climate crisis.

    Maybe Josef Goebbels came back from Hell for a day to direct the article writers.
    “Tell a big enough lie for long enough and people will believe it”
    Wait until the communists tell you that the Sun rises in the West and sets in the East and that’s the cause of rampant racism today……

  8. Gator says:

    “In the United States, redlining is the systematic denial of various services by federal government agencies, local governments as well as the private sector either directly or through the selective raising of prices.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redlining#History

    For businesses it had nothing to do with race, it was all about risk. Nobody wants to invest money in an area where that investment is at great risk. The subprime mortgage crisis that occurred over a decade ago was caused when banks were forced to give loans to those who were not loan worthy.

  9. Ben Vorlich says:

    Immigrants, as opposed to invaders, look for three things. Cheap housing, people from where they left. That’s why the Scots from North Uist went to Nova Scotia and married other Scots from the Western Isles. That’s why Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Indian communities in the UK are cemtred on specific towns. Nothing to do with racism, it’s human nature to be with your own kind.

  10. RegretLeft says:

    I think long time readers may understand that the “climate crisis” is in large part an artifact of urban heat islands. That is, the siting of land thermometers in and near such areas and the decommissioning of those in more rural areas.

    Mr Heller can speak for himself, but I recall many posts with very detailed aerial photographs that showed before and after sites of land thermometers. With the “after” sites tending to be, for example, close to building ventilation fans or in traffic islands in the midst of 10 or 12 lanes of asphalt.

    I know there are just 24 hours in a day; but this site could benefit hugely from a better organized and accessible archive. Land Thermometers/Sites of …

    Why, because they chopped down trees for firewood like they do in foreign Black countries they came from? I think the NYT is culturally bigoted.
