I’m unversed in UN arcana, but I’m pretty sure that nothing in its mandate gives it the right to investigate and report on affordable housing in the U.S. Of course, in keeping with the immediately preceding post I did about the prevalence of false news, maybe this is a hoax too. Apparently everything we report here needs a caveat now: “Warning — this story can either be incredibly important or absolutely meaningless. Take your pick and, meanwhile, be sure to exercise your Second Amendment rights.”
UPDATE: Teressa, at Noisy Room (it’s her link you see above) says she’s pretty sure the story is kosher and not a fake. Thinking about my need for that assurance, I realized how utterly different the falsehoods of today are. In the past, these kinds of falsehoods were aimed at making people believe lies. Now, they’re aimed at making people disbelieve the truth. I find this very disturbing, because it is an effort to make truth meaningless. In such a world, anything goes.
