The Obama administration recently warned the nation’s landlords that asking tenant applicants about their criminal history is racist, and talk radio’s top conservative believes this could be an attempt by the government to start seizing privately-owned properties.
Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) claims that refusing to rent based on a criminal record is a form of racial discrimination “because of widespread racial and ethnic disparities in the U.S. criminal justice system.”
Limbaugh believes however, “what it’s really all about is seizing your property.”
Hey, if you can tell a landlord that he’s gotta rent to a criminal — by the way, you know what that’s really all about, folks? It’s never just about what it seems. It’s not about evening the racial score.
You know what this is really all about? You have a landlord that refuses to rent to a criminal, Obama says, “No, no, no, you have to because our racial justice system’s been so unbalanced, you’re guilty of racism when you refuse to rent,” you know what that’s really all about is seizing your property. What do you think the penalty’s gonna be to the landlords that fail to follow Obama’s dictates and rent rooms to criminals. You don’t think they’re gonna be able to come in and make the play for your land, for your property, absconding it, claiming that you are misusing it or what have you?
And one thing about authoritarian figures, private this, private that, they don’t like anything private. Private property, private guns, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. The more they can take away from you, including your private this or your free speech or what have you. This is who these people are, folks. Don’t blame me. This is who they are.
Listen to Rush’s prediction below …
Now check out this report from 2015 in which the Obama administration announced plans to ‘racially organize America’s neighborhoods.’
It hardly seems all that far-fetched to believe Rush is right when you put all of these things together.
