Obama Compiling Massive Databases So As to Inflict Racial Harrison Bergeron World

If the current administration has a single priority higher than reducing America’s role in world affairs, it is to ensure that Caucasians are not able to outperform another racial group in any area whatsoever. To achieve this objective at a truly totalitarian level, massive amounts of information are required:

A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”

In typical Orwellian fashion, the Regime uses the word “justice” to mean exactly the opposite of how it is defined in the dictionary.

This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases…

“Disparate impact” is an insane doctrine by which “racism” is held to be responsible for any difference in black versus white achievement. A bank makes more loans to whites than blacks, because whites are more likely to be qualified applicants for the same reason Switzerland has a higher standard of living than Uganda? Racism is to blame. The bank is punished, on top of being forced to make bad loans to members of the politically preferred race.

That has already been happening; it was a major factor in causing the 2008 meltdown. Obama wants to take it further.

There will be no limit to the lunacy. A Lexus dealer sells more cars to whites than blacks? It must be owned by racists. The dealer will be publicly shamed, looted I mean fined, and forced to sell Lexuses to blacks at a price they can afford.

A higher percentage of blacks than whites are in prison? Never mind that they are more likely to violate the law. The only ideological permissible explanation is racism. Black criminals must be unleashed upon the streets in the name of “justice.” After all, they only made a few mistakes, same as Obama.

Once again the axis of evil between hard left activist groups and the federal government will be on display:

Big Brother Barack wants the databases operational before he leaves office, and much of the data in them will be posted online.

So civil-rights attorneys and urban activist groups will be able to exploit them to show patterns of “racial disparities” and “segregation,” even if no other evidence of discrimination exists.

Here’s how the data will be used to reduce safe, decent neighborhoods to slums:

The granddaddy of them all is the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing database, which the Department of Housing and Urban Development rolled out earlier this month to racially balance the nation, ZIP code by ZIP code. …

The agency proposes using nonwhite populations of 50% or higher as the threshold for classifying segregated areas.

No white majority neighborhoods will be allowed. They might become pockets of resistance. That’s why Obama has been importing so many millions from the Third World.

Federally funded cities deemed overly segregated will be pressured to change their zoning laws to allow construction of more subsidized housing in affluent areas in the suburbs, and relocate inner-city minorities to those predominantly white areas.

He promised fundamental transformation. Here it is. Welcome to Detroit.

HUD plans to drill down to an even more granular level, detailing the proximity of black residents to transportation sites, good schools, parks and even supermarkets. If the agency’s social engineers rule the distance between blacks and these suburban “amenities” is too far, municipalities must find ways to close the gap or forfeit federal grant money and face possible lawsuits for housing discrimination.

It’s not as if the government didn’t learn anything from the disaster the Community Reinvestment Act caused in 2008. It learned that in order not to let a crisis go to waste, sometimes you first need to create the crisis:

Meanwhile, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, headed by former Congressional Black Caucus leader Mel Watt, is building its own database for racially balancing home loans. … Mortgage contracts won’t be the only financial records vacuumed up by the database. According to federal documents, the repository will include “all credit lines,” from credit cards to student loans to car loans — anything reported to credit bureaus. This is even more information than the IRS collects.

The FHFA will also pry into your personal assets and debts and whether you have any bankruptcies. The agency even wants to know the square footage and lot size of your home, as well as your interest rate.

If you are white, why should your house have more square footage than the average black house? Don’t try to tell me it’s because you worked hard, you racist!

The data will also be used to double down on Affirmative Action by looking for employment “disparities.” Since blacks are more likely to have prison histories, using lack of an arrest record as a job qualification is racist.

You think public schools are degenerating into zoos now? Just wait:

Through its mandatory Civil Rights Data Collection project, the Education Department is gathering information on student suspensions and expulsions, by race, from every public school district in the country. Districts that show disparities in discipline will be targeted for reform.

In practice this means that since white children are more likely to behave themselves, they will be punished for even the most minor infractions, while black students will be allowed to run riot. This is already the case in many schools; Obama wants to make it worse.

The gifted will no longer be allowed to rise up from the lowest common denominator:

Obama’s educrats want to know how many blacks versus whites are enrolled in gifted-and-talented and advanced placement classes.

No one in the government is going to point out that this is insane in light of IQ differences — at least, no one who wants to keep his job.

Count on a flood of private lawsuits to piggyback federal discrimination claims, as civil-rights lawyers use the new federal discipline data in their legal strategies against the supposedly racist US school system.

Even if no one has complained about discrimination, even if there is no other evidence of racism, the numbers themselves will “prove” that things are unfair.

Such databases have never before existed. Obama is presiding over the largest consolidation of personal data in US history. He is creating a diversity police state where government race cops and civil-rights lawyers will micromanage demographic outcomes in virtually every aspect of society.

In the Kurt Vonnegut story “Harrison Bergeron,” anyone who excels in any way is debilitated by the government in order to achieve equality. The beautiful have to wear ugly masks, radios implanted in the ears of smart people scramble their thoughts, the physically strong or graceful are forced to carry weights, et cetera.

Where the story got the future wrong is that these egalitarian measures are imposed on an individual level. Our liberal rulers are incapable of perceiving people as individuals. Fundamentally transformed America is becoming a racialized version of Harrison Bergeron.
