Last week, I posted about an attack on YIMBYs (activists who favor less zoning and more housing) that used the term “alt-right”; the authors of that blog post recently doubled down with a slightly more moderate op-ed that still tarred YIMBYs as “aligned with conservative right-wing libertarianism.”
In fact, the Obama Administration is on the same side as YIMBYs; I recently published an article about their 2016 policy paper on urban housing. Read all about it here.

Huh? There are a lot of people who will place YIMBY on the left! I think, myself, that National level ideologies are irrelevant at the local level.
