In Munroe’s case, the tribunal dismissed all but one of the grounds, that of reprisal. The bureaucrats’ reasons were typically arbitrary and flaky. (For example, they just ruled that a man doesn’t have to have his penis removed to be legally considered female.)
Particularly amusing was the conclusion that “while Munroe was diagnosed with an undisclosed ‘chronic medical condition,’ he was not dying and in turn did not qualify for priority housing.” (Apt. for rent—corpses preferred.)
Furthermore, the tribunal heard testimony that “the immigrants in question may have been victims of domestic violence, which…would account for why they were offered social housing so quickly.” (Room to let—bruised females only.)
We can object that government should get out of the housing and “shelter” business altogether and/or that Mr. Munroe should devote his ample free time to seeking gainful employment. But in the here and now, Mr. Munroe’s allegations of anti-white bias seem believable.
News of Munroe’s case broke around the same time that Frank Field, England’s “poverty tsar,” declared that “up to half of all social housing lets [in London] are given to those born abroad.”
In the United States, HUD’s Section 8 and public housing programs are open to both US citizens and those holding “eligible immigration status.” State programs have their own criteria; in Massachusetts, you can apply for housing “no matter what your immigration status is.”
In 2009, it emerged that Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, a native Kenyan, had applied for asylum in Boston in 2002, moved into federally funded housing in 2003, and stayed there even after a judge ordered her to leave the US. Onyango eventually moved into a state-funded apartment, where, conveniently, her immigration status could not be questioned. Her deportation order has since been waived.
Many of those illegal immigrants have US-born “anchor babies” who automatically become American citizens. Their means they (and their parents and siblings) are eligible for federal public housing as “mixed families.”
And now, Obama’s Department of Justice is fighting alleged discrimination against blacks and Latinos applying for Section 8 housing in LA County’s Lancaster and Palmdale, “even though 86% of the Section 8 recipients in both cities are minorities.”
When it comes to public housing, there appears to be no room at the inn for “white privilege.”
